I had been previously using Worlds Best and liked it, but $33.00 for a 34 lb. bag was hitting me pretty hard in the wallet.
Chicken feed doesn't clump quite as hard as Worlds' Best, but it does clump and contains odor great.
I have 6 boxes and generally clean them daily, but on occasion have gone two days in between with no problems.
I guess I should mention that most of my cats are indoor/outdoor cats and I'm sure that helps a lot.
I get the chicken feed for $7.50 for a 50 lb. bag and not only does it last well, I don't cringe when I have to change them all out.
Now it's easier to afford the 4 15 lb. bags of quality cat food that my little furballs manage to chow down.
