i did one day of research on cats' litter.
i wanted to make sure that i am doing the right thing in the long run, so i invested some time into it.
i found out that some litter can be really toxic. Can you imagine cats licking on the toxic stuff?
After finding some gruesome facts, i immediately stopped using the litter that i bought from Costco. In fact, i have another tub in the storage room. Yes, i should throw it out.
i bought theworldbestcat'slitter, and it is really great! It is biodegradable, flushable and is really even pleasant to scoop (smooth texture.) My kitties' paws remain clean and smooth, and i feel safe and assured when they lick on their paws, as the litter is made of whole kernel corn.
i called about 15 places in San Francisco area for the prices (i always compare prices before i buy stuff.. hehe!) and a big bag of 34 pounds costs me about $32.00 (including sales tax of 8-1/2%.) Also, a metallic scoop is given free if you buy the 34-lb bag (biggest size.) That is the lowest price. The highest quote was about $44.99 without tax.
Try it -- you'll know what i mean!
By the way, i feel metallic scoops are better, as they will not absorb odor and such.
