    Default kitty litter

    Any frugal ideas out there on cheap kitty litter that is not hazardous to the cats' health?
    TIA,
    Patty

    I have heard about people using shredded newspaper. You gradually work the shredded paper in and slowly use less litter.
    I don't do that I have to have a clumping kind because I have an automatic cat box.

    Well, Wal-mart carries several inexpensive ones, I like the Special Kitty scoopable, it's more expensive than the non-scoopable, but you don't have to change the whole thing as often. It's about $4.00 a container, which lasts us, with one cat, a month before we empty the whole thing and start over.

    Special Kitty is the Wal-Mart brand of cat products, just like Old Roy is their dog brand.

    Good luck!

    Just a word of caution. If you are trying shredded newspaper or buying
    the kitty litter made from newspaper, watch your cat carefully at first.

    I discovered that my cat was EATING the kitty litter. After numerous
    calls to the vet and the company, it turns out that it appears to be
    something in the ink that appealed to her and she would actually eat it
    which was not a good thing as the vet and I discovered.

    I quit using it right away.

    I use regular Fresh Step Kitty Litter. It is on sale from time to time.

    Know anyone in your area who dose wood work? Cats are ok with wood shaveings. Or at least I knew numerous people who used this growing up. Try offering to pick up wood shaveings from anyone who may have them on your local Freecycle. My self I buy cheap litter from Save-a lot. Its like $3-$4 for a big bag. I buy several at a time and keep it in a plastic trash can with a lid.
