I figured I should check out the different litters at my Pet-Food store,wanting to maybe change from the clumping litter.
Well,I found the recycled newspaper litter,not too bad at $6,99/10lbs,but so far none of my cats is using it.I only put it in one box.
I had a good laugh though,when I discovered a bag of litter costing $39,50+15%tax/20lb,who on earth would pay that much for cat-litter??
Having three boxes I would have to mortgage my house :eek:
I am not sure what it was made of,but I think some kind of grain,something natural anyway...

I'm not sure what that Kitty litter was but at over $2.00 a pound most of us could not afford that.
I tired the newspaper stuff and kittys only looked at it and sat there tapping their claws on the side of the kitty litter pan - trying to get my attention. I changed it out with natural cracked corn kitty litter. Another loser that when wet smells like something that had been dead too long and left in the hot sun.
It was the only thing that made kitty poops smell better than the litter it was dumped in.
So I gave up and went back to the terrible clumping stuff and they all enjoyed a comfortable kitty krap with a smile on their whiskered faces.
Some wars you can't win.

LMAO CHico!!! I did the same thing.... I had this big a$$ bag of litter, environmental, non smelling, super pooper stuff that practically wiped the cats' butts for them.....when I got to the till and dude told me it was $29.99 for 20 lbs I just about **** my pants!! I laughed at the guy and said, I don't even spend that much for my a$$!!! I think there were other jokes and smart arse comments from me, but you know... this is a family site!!! LOL
Needless to say, we tried the newspaper pellets and we tried the cracked wheat and we tried the pearl litter and ..... just like your cats Woody, we are back to the good ol' standby clumping litter!!! I can only take so much poo on the floor around the litter box!!! :rolleyes:
