Looking for an alternative to WBCL

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi folks!

 

I've been using WBCL for the last 4 years and LOVE it.  However, I've noticed that within the last 3-4 months, they've decreased their largest bag size... From 32lbs to 28lbs, but in most retail stores the price is still $32.  I was willing to pay $1 per pound, but more than that is hard to swallow.  I've only got one cat living with me right now, but in the next 2-3 years, we'll be looking into adding 1-2 kittens, so I'd love to find a slightly lower-cost option now that will work for us later.

What I like about WBCL: it is not scented, clumps well, and the biggie...it's flushable.  We keep the box in the bathroom and scoop / flush twice a day, which works great for odor control, etc.

 

That leads me to a couple of questions for you guys...

 

1.  I have seen blue buffalo walnut-based clumping litter, but have not tried it.. Is it unscented and is it flushable?

 

2.  Can you recommend any other brands that are unscented, clump, and are flushable? 

 

 

Thank you so much for you help and time!

I like WB too....and I have been finding it quite a bit less $ than that.  The other corn based I use sometimes is the Arm & Hammer.  I buy whichever of the two is on sale.  I did try a bag of the Blue Buffalo walnut litter, but didn't think it clumped nearly as well, and it tracked very badly.

The Blue Buffalo is unscented, but not flushable. I use the multi-cat clumping variety. It clumps well, but you do have to follow the instructions on the bag and wait about 15 minutes before scooping. One thing I really like is that if the clumps get stuck to the bottom or sides of the box they pop off easily without crumbling or leaving a residue.

I accidentally got the regular kind instead of multi-cat one time and it wasn't nearly as good. It's ground up much finer, almost like fine dirt, and is dusty and tracks badly. The multi-cat litter has almost no dust and does not track. I just have to sweep up a little right around the litter boxes every day or two.

I may have tried the regular one.....`I was paying extra for the multi-cat varieties (3 cats).  Tried the regular WB, and discovered the cats didn't care at all.
