POLL: How much do you scoop?? - Page 2

post #31 of 47
Amie! So true!

I scoop at least twice a day, but since Holly is in my room now since she is having kittens in the next few days, if she goes then I'll remove it straight away.

Is this too gross, but...what do you do with it once you scoop? I got a Litter Locker for the main floor...

I have 2 litter lockers I really like them

Twice a day, more on weekends, but my two kitties share one large corner litter box. They seem to be just fine sharing, so it works for me!

I guess how often you scoop also depends how many boxes you have in the house (e.g., one per kitty, one per two kitties, one for each + an extra box)?

Well with 7 litter boxes, 5 domestics, 3 bobcats and a cougar, that is a lot of poop to scoop At least 3 times a day, sometimes more. Of course, our Aurora always waits for you to scoop. I make my rounds and just when I think I am done, there she is franticly digging in the box as if to say, I have to do this before he catches me

My usual daily routine is scoop in the morning before work, get home & scoop after the kits have had pooping contests all day long!

And usually after they eat at night, too, there is the usual poo-frenzy. So I'll scoop before bed if there is a lot of stinkies in the house.

Don't you know that scooping time is the best time to use the litter box. There are times I could scoop all 3 boxes 3 times in a row before everyone is done making a mess in the clean box.

I would say 3 times - I never ever had a cat which needed a litter box, so having a kitten since 1 week is a new experience. I didn't even know what to do with a cat toilet. Never knew there was such a choice in litter etc etc.

I scoop in the morning, when I get up, when I get back from work and before I go to bed. I currently have a kitten box, which may be fine for some kittens, but not for one which loves to dig to Australia before going for a solid one. So I went and got a massive litter box (the biggest I could find), but as I had just cleaned the little one, before I got the big one, I decided instead of making up a new box, I would put it inside the big box.... hey presto, perfect ! I only need a smallish amount of litter, and he can't throw it out of both boxes (allthough he tries). I am quite mad with completley replacing the litter every other day, and the big box would have got very expensive very quickly.

The fist litter we bought was called "Fuller's Earth" and clumped quite well. Currently I use Supermarket Extra Value Lightweight Litter, but it's rubbish, as it doesn't clump, and I end up replacing the whole lot 3 times a day.
Next try will be Catsan. Smell-wise there is no difference. The cat is meticulous (bordering on obsessed) with covering all body movements, and I guess I change often enough.... Can't wait until he is allowed out and uses Mother Natures toilet instead !

I voted other because I don't do the scooping... I have a hubby for that!! but he usually does it every other day with a complete litter change and disinfecting every 5-7 days depending on amount of poo and smell...

I HIGHLY reccommend "arm & hammer super scoop" I Love it (as much as I love anything that has poop in it eventually) I like the way it clumps better than tidy cats and it made a big improvement on smell... I use their litter deodorizer too and that helps.

Have you got a Picture of the Arm & Hammer Cat litter ? I am in the UK, so it will have a different name, but the packaging should be the same.

I do it once a day

You're not bad. As long as your kitty doesn't mind, I'm sure she's perfectly fine. She'd let you know if she wasn't happy.

I'm also an every-other-day or so "scooper", mainly because I use feline pine and don't have to scoop. I'm also in a one-kitty household. With feline pine there is no pee to scoop, so it's only her solid waste I have to worry about. I use a whole bag of FP at a time, so Miss Kitty has a lot of room to bury her pooh. So every couple of days I dig out from the sawdust her pooh, and when the pellets all turn to sawdust I know it's time to change the litter.

that's so odd, because previously in this thread, just the opposite was stated! i've been using the arm & hammer super scoop for years, but i thought i'd try the tidy cats because someone else thought it was better. i'll post again after i've used some of it - bought it but haven't needed it yet!
