I use normally use Arm & Hammer Super Scoop for my adult kitties (but sometimes i'll use fresh step, tidy cats, or something else if it's good and on sale) and Swheat Scoop for my foster kittens (just in case they get curious and try to eat the litter...it's non toxic..)

I have 4 kitties that I use the litter for (not counting the foster kittens) Humm, I'm really not sure how often I buy litter....but i'm going today....I will be switching Kenzie to the Arm & Hammer Super Scoop today . I will be purchasing the normal sized box (I think there is only one size for that but i could be wrong.). I scoop my litter pans 1-2x a day and completly dump and clean Kenzie's every other day....ther rest of the girls I scoop daily and dump and clean once a week thoroughly.
your sooo funny!! "the catlady", i'm thinking... i'm certainly a great candidate
for that position, got it well underway! my newiest, " love of my
life," "GG" is also a poop machine, as soon as she eats, she heads straight for it! Something else she does which is pretty cute, she may be playing , chasing, whatever she does... when all of a sudden i see her run past me, meowing a funny sound, headed to use the litter box to teetee! It reminds me
of my son, he is so busy playing a doesn't want to stop to use the bathroom, so he holds it as long as he can, and then when he can't hold it any longer, boom! he bolts to the bathroom!! GG does that! Cats, each has their own special thing that they do, now that i have had enough of them to notice this, i can't wait to see what each ones thing is!!!!!!! cats are soo cool!
I use arm & hammer, biggiest box, once a week, sometimes more, scoop the
box, 2 times daily, and clean it soap and water, once a wk!

I prefer Tidy Cats clumping litter in the red box. I usually buy multiple tubs when I go to Walmart, because it seems to be cheapest there. I scoop (almost) daily. Sometimes I slip, especially when I have lots of fosters, because they just take some of my time!

When the boxes look yucky, I dump them out and soak in the laundry tub, using hot water and a splash of bleach. I have an extra toilet scrubbing brush that I keep in the laundry room, just for scrubbing out the litterboxes. I only scrub when they have bleach in them, to be sure the brush doesn't get germs on it. I am more careful about that since I have my cats and the fosters. Often the fosters are wormy, or could potentially have other illnesses.

I do rinse very well, because I learned at TCS that kitties don't like bleach!

Festie loves a clean litter box. Usually if I am scooping, she is following me to dirty the box again. Which is fine if she does it in box one as I scoop box two. But sometimes she waits just until I put down the scoop, then in she jumps!

The fosters are generally babies, so I just use whatever freebie clay litter has been donated to the agency. I also got to stock up on free canned food for the fosters the last time we were at Petco or Petsmart. So to all of you who donate to shelters and foster agencies....THANKS!!!

I use a product called OKO Plus - 2x40 litre bag lasts me about 10 weeks (10 cats, 11 litter boxes). Its a wood based product that clumps excellently and has a decent smell.

I use WBCL and buy a 34lb bag that lasts approximately a month - give or take!

Your GG sounds like such an adorable kitty! Do you have any pictures? lol, I was laughing when I read your post- Kenzie does the same thing- she will be playing or eating her dinner and the all of a sudden will make a b-line for the litter pan ....it's funny!

I use Nature's Miracle just for cats to clean the box. I dump out all the litter, spray it down, scrub with a sponge, rinse and dry. I like it because it disinfects, but it's nontoxic.

Arm&Hammer. Here's the spokeskitty now!



I use Multi-cat. Don't ask why. I just do! I buy one a month or so.

GASP! When I was using Chicken Feed, I went through 150 bls. or more every 2 weeks! Then again, I had like a billion boxes in the house & then more outside...

Right now, I've got 3-35 lb. Tiday Cats Pails, 2-35 lb. Scoop Away pails, 1 Arm & Hammer scoop 20 lb. box, 1 Scoop Away 20 lb. box, 1 bag Yesterday's News....and 200 lbs. of chicken feed. Oh yeah, & I just dumped & filled the 3 rubbermaid tubs, 1 large litterpan & 1 underbed storage tub in the house today. That's like a ton of litter I used up right there!

I buy litter once a week. I have four boxes in the house. One for each kitty more or less. I use Tidy cat clumping upstairs and scoop it twice a day, and the regular Tidy cat litter downstairs and just scoop it once a day to get the poops out.
I change my litter every week and clean the boxes when I change the litter.
I am very anal when it comes to how my cats litter boxes smell. I figure, if I can smell it, they can too and it doesn't smell good to me, then how good does it smell to them?

I would say about every 2 weeks. It is hard to keep track of, though. We just started using Swheat Scoop and it is wonderful! I like that it is a natural product and will break down. It is odorless and clumps magically. With four cats litter is important. Some brands wouldn't clump well enough & will break up and go into the litter, and then I have to exchange all the litter too frequently. Tidy Cats crystals also works very well. And has a pleasant aroma.

Scoop Away seems to clump best for me. It is very dusty, and I usually (when I remember) pour the contents from one bucket into another bucket outside before I bring it in the house. 2nd choice is Tidy Cats clumping in the Immediate Odor Control formula. It seemed to work longer than the Long Lasting Odor Control version.

Arm & Hammer didn't clump well for me. Sheba pees too much at a time with all her medications and fluids.

I use Arm & Hammer in all 5 rubber maid tubs and scoop every day and add when needed and completely empty once a month or as needed.

I'm always buying litter so I'm not sure how often but it has to be at least once a week.

What kind of Arm & Hammer do you use? I use Arm & Hammer Super Scoop, but I was thinking about trying some of the other ones. Do you know if they work well or better than the super scoop?

I use the new arm & hammer high performance and the 10# bag and lasts about 3 to 4 weeks

We use Cat Country. I buy the 20lb bag approx. every 4 weeks. I scoop once to twice a day and change the entire litter every 11-12 days.
