Tractor Supply Cat litter

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
I'm always looking for ways to save money, and with 12 cats I have to. So I discovered Paws and Claws cat litter at Tractor Supply last night. It's clumping, and only $5.99 for a 25 lb bag! I bought 2 bags, went home, dumped and scrubbed 2 of my litter boxes and put it in. The first thing I noticed was that there was no dust, which is awesome. And a few cats come right over, jumped in, and went. Clumps well also. Just wanted to let you all know that its there, for anyone who's near a Tractor Supply and likes to save a few bucks

the link is to the clay litter. The scoopable is $5.99. But if you use clay thats super cheap too. So far so good, and no dust! I mean, doesn't keep them from tracking all over the place, but if someone invented a 100% non trackable litter I'd probably pay $1000 for it

just looked at the website and the scoopable isn't even on there, but in the store its in a blue bag, instead of green.

Thanks I might need to try that. I have a tractor supply just up the street.

just scooped and the pee clumped rock hard and still very little dust, and its unscented, so the dust that is there isn't the gag inducing kind that other litters leave. Really like it, I might just switch totally.

Heck, I would, for that price!

I'm pretty excited. I mean, I won't know how great it is until I've had 12 cats peeing in it for a few weeks, but if it does hold up I'm definitely switching. The other cheapest litter I've found is the Special Kitty, but I like this more actually, so far. I think because it truly has no smell, which I hate nothing more than scooping poop and having the poop smell better than the litter
And all the cats seem to be using that box more than all the others, which is a good sign.

Ok, we are weird people - we get excited about clay and poop!

Cool. There isn't a TSC close by... but where I show my fosters... there is one up the road. I understand too that they have good prices on things like antiobiotic eye ointment, food, etc.

They carry TOTW, and Blue and have better prices than any place I've found. They carry all kinds of cool things that I never thought to look for in a farm supply store. By the way, day 2 and i still like the litter.

I love Tractor Supply. All kinds of cool stuff you'd never expect.

I love it when you find a good price on a good product. I decided to try a lot of different kinds of litter to find one I really liked, and I found a bag of scoopable litter at Hy-Vee (local grocery store). For only $4.99 for 25 pounds!! And it's a great litter, far better than the others I've tried. Sometimes store brand can be the best, I guess.

Wow..Cool.. we have a Tractor Supply close and i never thought of looking there.. with 15 cats... i need to go there asap....
post #15 of 63
How does it control odor? That is the number 1 priority for me. Right now I use Tidy Cat and you would never know I have 11 cats. Absolutely no odor at all.

But I sure could use a break on the price! I pay about 15.00 for 40 lbs.

Luckily, we go to TS quite a bit. Its only a couple of miles away.

Sorry all, went out of town for the weekend. I only have the Tractor Supply litter in 2 litter boxes, but when I came home from being out of town for 4 days, I did not notice any odor, which I would think with being away from it for that long I'd smell something, but I didn't. Still clumping well, and I LOVE the fact that it has no fragrance. I can't stand perfumy litters. It gags me when I scoop.

Keep us updated please,

There's a TSC about 20 minutes away, if it's worth it I could go stock up for awhile!

Well I still like it. The closest TS is 35 minutes away but I work in that town on Sundays and Mondays and I'm going to pick up enough bags to switch out all my litter boxes this Sunday. That will be the true test, but I think it'll be fine.
post #19 of 63
Thanks for the update! I'll have to try it out myself.
post #20 of 63

Is anyone still using this? I want to try it.

I use it, especially for fosters.  I usually use A/H unscented and the Paws and Claws is almost as good.  The only thing I noticed is sometimes the P&C will not grab the pee right away and it will end up on the bottom of the litter box.  Not always, though, so it isn't too bad a problem.  I usually end up mixing the, which saves me enough  money that I have no complaints.

A TSC store opened near me a few months ago.  I discovered the Paws and Claws litter the first time I went there.  It's been great with 7 cats for at least 3 months.  Low dust, unscented, and excellent odor control.  I rarely smell anything even when they first poop.

How fine are the granules? I'm looking for low-dust, cheap, soft litter.

I just started using this yesterday. It really doesnt look any different then the tidy cat we use. Except its more of a brown color. Not gray. It  does seem soft. 

post #25 of 63

OK, bought some today to try and so far 2 cats have used it within 5 minutes of changing the boxes.  It's much heavier than the Cat's Pride scoopable that I was using, but very low dust and I like that!

Is this a litter you'd recommend for asthmatics?

It's definitely worth checking out IMO.
We just bought some a few weeks ago and have found it to be very cost effective, much less dusty than other clay ones, and it has good odour control too. I'm bothered by dust and most clay litters make me sneeze, but so far not this one.

I don't know what you're using now, but this Paws and Claws scoopable is WAY less dusty and VERY little litter tracking compared to what I was using before (Cat's Pride).  I have asthma and have to drive all the way to the opposite end of the county for this but it is working much better for me than the Cat's Pride was.

For those of you using Tractor Supply's kitty litter, I've just added them to our litter reviews category - 

http://www.thecatsite.com/products/category/litter/tractor-supply-company

 

If you could please add a quick rating and review, I'm sure it would help other cat owners make a wiser choice. It could also get you a $30 Amazon gift card at the end of the month ;)

I think I may have to try it if it's really almost dust free... I was so sick of the dust in fresh step; I switched to chicken layer crumble. It works really well but TSC only sells 50lb bags of the kind I buy. I have a bad back, so this is an issue. It is a little cheaper than the chicken crumble as well. Although the crumble is almost totally dust free.
