Hi! I just joined the site today after reading the discussion thread here on the Tidy Cats Breeze System.
I have 9 cats, all rescues as kittens except one; ages range now from 3 years old to 8 years old. Despite the general rule of one box per cat plus one, I have 6 litterboxes and have used the Tidy Cats for Small Spaces. I'm SO DONE WITH SCOOPING and really want to try the Breeze System but the one time I changed litters, from scoopable to Sweat Scoop, there was great resistance ... and lots of urine on the floor.
Anyway, for those of you with multi-cat households, do you find that each cat has taken to it? Do you have any tips to get each cat to take to it?
I'm just leary because I read where animal behaviorists have said cats prefer soft, small pieces on their paw pads and from what I've seen so far, those pellets are big and hard. I read the suggestion of mixing pellets with the old litter and will try that. I also read the suggestion of letting the old litterbox go rank, but quite honestly with asthma & allergies and apartment quarters, I can't do this.
Right now, the WalMart in my area has a rollback price of $32.00 for the system; I'd start with one but would probably get 4 in total, maybe 5. The biggest cost I'm anticipating is the urine pads because I suspect I'll be changing those once, if not twice a day. Still beats the cost of two 27 gallon buckets of litter a week.
Any suggestions or convincing you can give me into just taking the plunge and getting the system would be greatly appreciated!! I went to WalMart twice already with the intention of buying it and walked out empty handed. I just can't make up my mind with certainty that all 9 of my crew will take to it.
