emergency litter!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey we are snowed in here we we are at and it just so happens I am out of litter!


Is there something I can use around the house for my kits until I can get to the store?

rice?

paper?


I do not know what to do!
UGH!
We got hit yesterday and were stuck and got more today!
Shopping day is normally today and I thought we would be able to get out but it is not looking good...

The rice may work....or do you have any birdseed? I used that once years ago in a pinch.

I would tear up some paper towels or tissue and hopefully they will use that. Do you have any sand? Like you would use on your walks. If so, you can use the sand. Just be sure its not chemically treated.

no sand
no newspaper
I have
paper towels
rice
birdseed
and about a handful of their pine pellets in each box...so far we are accident free..

I am going to try the rice first...

Use rice and paper towels. Last resort is to use a towel you really don't want anymore and can throw away. Hopefully it will be clear soon so you can get to the store.

I've run out of litter before - just put a bunch of paper towels in the pans and kept changing them when wet.

Just a helpful suggestion, get some bags of sand. This time of year it can help to throw a few of them in the trunk or in the back of a truck bed to help with traction. ...and if you need emergency litter again.

lol..yes thanks for the tip!
I think I will just put the xtra cat litter in the trunk as they are 40lb bags..so then I will never have this issue again! and be able to drive in the nasty white stuff!
