What do you do with your kitty poopies? - Page 2

post #31 of 50
I also use plastic grocery bags and take right out to the trash
post #32 of 50
After one very expensive trip by the plumber (flushing was a bad idea in my old house), I bought myself a Litter Locker. If you've ever seen a Diaper Genie, it's the same concept: you scoop litter into it, and when you're done, it rolls it up into a plastic tube. When it's filled up, you tie off the end and dispose of the contents; no muss, no fuss. If anyone is interested, you can order them online from Petsmart for about $20.

I do the shopping bag thing as well. I scoop, tie off the bag and outside in the trash can it goes...

We scoop at least once a day (more if needed) and the clumps go into one of those ubiquitous plastic shopping bags. We double bag them, knot them tight, and put them in the garage by the door. My fiance tosses them in the outside trash can every day, and that bin is taken out to the curb for pickup twice a week.

I have dreams of getting one of those special cat toilet thingies, the ones that have crystals and water flushes everything away...but those are expensive and I have no idea if the boys would use it, given that they seem to like the feel of the grains of litter on their paws.

nappy (diaper) bags are my thing. They are the size of a sandwich bag and scented, then I just throw them in the bin. I use a small-ish binliner indoors, so I bring that lot out every other day. For changing the whole litter, I use an old swing bin, hang a plasitc shopping bag in there, knot when done and put straight in the out-doors bin (I do the whole emptying outdoors, too dusty for in here). Our plastic shopping bags have holes in them to stop children from suffocating, so no good for the daily scoop.

I found the best nappy-bags were the ones from poundstretcher or similar shops, the cheaper the better, as they are stronger perfumed.

I do the same thing I scoop twice a day once while the kids are getting ready for school and again before I go to bed. It all goes straight to the outside trach can double bagged so the other neighborhood animals won't mess with my cans .

I used the shopping bag method. I then tie it off and put it in the trash. We have a nice kitchen- the trash bucket is built into the cuphoard and it slides in shut the door- no smell! I used to have a kitchen trash with a lid. That would get stinky but we didn't have recycling and it would fill up quicker, and then it went out to the dumpster. Right now we take the bag of trash to the outside can when it's full. We have town pay to throw pickup. No flushing in this house- we have a pretty old septic we want to keep.

I ran into this dilema and that's why I switched to a flushable, biodegradable litter.......World's Best Cat Litter. I flush the poop and the clumps of pee down the toilet. When I do a complete litter change, then I put the "bulk" of the litter in a garbage bag and give it to the garbage man as a present!!

I'd have to check the brand, but I use some sort of small pet pooh bags that come in a red box of about 100. They were like $2.50 for a box and are just the right size. I also believe they are scented. I tie them off and put them in the regular garbage can - never had a problem with smell. I only have one kitty and I use feline pine, so I don't scoop, just take the hard waste out, so I only do it every other day - one box of the bags last six months this way.

Up until a week ago I did exactly the same. Boy, was it ever simple! But as I said in another thread, I only have one bathroom and my daughter and her husband are coming to visit for a month. Am assuming they would not like to use a toilet that had been used for a cat's waste, no matter how carefully I did the deposit. This method of using plastic bags is horrible - am considering the Diaper Genie, but flushing WCBL is the ideal - simplicity itself.
To those of you who flush, should one only flush if there are two household toilets?

Nappy sacks for me - perfect size and scented so just the thing. I used to put them in the bathroom and take them out to the regular rubbish outside once a day (I scoop twice a day). I've recently started using a litter locker so only take them outside once or twice a week now.

Right now I'm using the Litter Locker which I like because it controls the odor very well. But I'm thinking about just using putting it into those plastic grocery bags and taking it outside twice a day. That would be a lot cheaper and not that much extra work.

I have three litter pans and scoop them in grocery bags. The plastic ones that you get when we Pay for stuff?......... And then I just put them o utside in the can.

I have two bathrooms and more often guests use the one that has the cat box I it. So far no one has complained about the possibility of germs. Frankly I never thought about it until you mentioned it.

When scooping I always flush twice and make sure the seat and floor is clean. If guests are coming I make sure to scoop before they arrive and sweep the floor. (I sweep regularly but do an extra good job when company is coming.)

Honestly, if I did not have flushable litter I would not be able to keep the cat.

That way each bag lasts all day usually, and it cuts down on the smell. Then I'll take it out the end of the day, or into a big garbage bag by the back door til the next day if its rainy.
I like your idea Ashley!

Right now, I am using shopping bags put in the litter tubs the litter came in, but those tubs are getting to smell, even after being bleached out! I take the bag out at the end of the day & put it in the garage. Every morning, I take the bag(s) out of the garage & dump them in the field. When the guys who farm around us till the ground under, there goes the litter! Good thing they don't care!
