What'sinYour Litter Box?
7/27/2009 1:48:03 PM
Cali only likes Fresh Step™ .
How do I know?
I changed her litter box and kitty litter when I was freshening up the bathroom as part of regular spring cleaning.

When she first arrived, I put her on the side porch until I could figure out what I was supposed to do with a kitten; since she had obviously staked her claim and was moving in-whether anybody liked it or not.
I still can't adequately explain that one.

There was, on the side porch a large flower box that was going to soon be filled with lovely pink and purple flowers of some sort.
Cali chose it to be her litter box and it has been since-except for the few days I had it outside during the ill fated: Change the litter box and get some of this good for the environment stuff phase.

She would not use it. Period. End of story.
She would go on the floor near it;
-or on the way to it
-but only a couple of obligatory times in it.

So- I changed it back.

Today we have an interesting article that I'll have to read to her-maybe it'll make an impression!
Stranger things have probably happened.

Caring for Mother Earth is very important and now even your cat can get in on the action! How, you ask? Biodegradable litter, of course! Every indoor cat has a litter box and inside of that litter box guessed it, litter! There are over 75 million feline pets in the United States alone! Thank goodness biodegradable litter is now available and new options are being tested each and every day. After all, the amount of cat litter that currently ends up in landfills is simply astronomical!

More than ever, litter companies are searching for new ways to do their part when it comes to saving the planet. The environmental market has exploded and it is a good idea for everyone (companies, as well as consumers) to join the fight. Biodegradable cat litter is the latest and greatest cat product to be added to the shelves of your local grocery and pet supply stores.

Choosing a litter will be one of the most important decisions you will make when it comes to your cat. After all, if he doesn't like what you fill his litter box with, he may just poop in your closet. Yuck! Hopefully, your cat wants to lend a paw when it comes to saving Mother Earth and actually likes biodegradable cat litter. What exactly is biodegradable cat litter? Simply put, it is grain! What type of grain? I'm glad you asked!

Biodegradable cat litter can be made from many different types of grain. Not only is grain better for the environment, growing it helps to keep farmers employed! Both of which are good things! Corn and wheat are two grains that are currently used in earth friendly litters. Both offer the advantages of clumping without the hazards! If your cat decides to eat some of his corn based litter for breakfast it will simply pass through his digestive system. While eating any litter isn't necessarily good for your feline, grain based litters will cause less (if any) health implications, unlike their clay litter counterpart. Grain based litters are soft on the paws and rarely do perfumes need to be added (they smell good all on their own!). Another wonderful advantage of grain, biodegradable litters, is that they do not cause a dust storm every time your cat enters his litter box! This is good news for the individual who just so happens to do the dusting and cleaning!

One of the most popular biodegradable cat litters on the market today is made of crumbled corn and clumps well enough for easy scooping. The best thing about this litter is that you can actually flush it! Yes, you read that correctly, you can FLUSH IT! Of course, you should read the bag that the litter comes in to make certain that the type of septic system that you have can handle it, however, I have never heard of anyone having any problems.

Another good thing about biodegradable cat litter is that it does not seem to affect cats and kittens that suffer from allergies. Some cats and kittens have a negative allergic reactions to the dust that clay litters often produce, therefore, grain based litters are a god-send for their respiratory systems! One note about wheat based litters. It is important that you keep your cat's litter box filled (don't let it get to low) or the wheat, when mixed with urine, will be very difficult to get out.

Biodegradable cat litter is the wave of the future! If you and your cat can agree on a biodegradable cat litter, wonderful! The less cat litter that ends up in our nation's landfills, the better! If you have an automatic cat box, no worries, many automatic cat litter boxes accommodate biodegradable litter! Meow!

Kathleen writes for, a blog devoted to automatic cat litter boxes. You will be surprised what you can learn about cats and their litter box habits and preferences!

Hi dearie,

Did you check out Netbug Advertising?
People get cash and/or credits for viewing short videos and put in the 4-digit code at the end.
This is one of those ground floor things that should be around and imitated for quite awhile.

Don't you have any kitty kat graphics?

My dear Joyce,

I found this topic when is too late (over midnight) , and simply I can`t stay to read all what you write, but would be back.

It is very interesting that EACH SEGMENT OF LIFE TODAY IS THE SCIENCE !

How many hours you spent to learn all this?


Sooner, we`d need the supercomputers for our pocket-use.


Thanks for starting such an interesting and informative topic.

Our cat mr fuzzums (spayed female, my son Curtis named
her that) lives indoors and has no name clumping litter in
the box in our washroom.

I scoop the clumps and poops every day and she uses it with
only the odd missed poop that hits the side of the box
(I hate when that happens LOL)

Lucky for me she only misses about once every 6 months.

I'll have to take a pic of mr fuzzums and upload it here one
of these days, or look in "my pictures" folder there's probably
a few pics in there.
