View Full Version : New kind of litter

03-18-2001, 06:48 AM
Just wondering if anyone has tried the "new" type of litter: Litter "pearls?" It is rather expensive initially, but only needs to be changed once a month thereafter. I normally used scoopable, but even with a very deep, covered "booda" box, litter granules would track everywhere. I have a very old home with wide board wood floors. Every day I'd have to "dig out" the litter out of the spaces between the floor board! This seems to work well, with much less tracking, no dust, great odor control and it weighs almost nothing! You just scoop out the poops every day and stir the pearls http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

I was just looking at your profile....you have one cat? Just wondering how long the litter would last in our house...we have 3 cats.

Actually, I have been waiting for someone else on pet talk to try out the "pearl" litter before i tried it out. Thanks for sharring. Keep me updated on if you continue to like it or not http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

Maybe I miss wrote! Actually, I have always had 2 cats. They say for 2 or more cats, don't use more than one bag at a time, just change it one week sooner. So far so good. Let us know. Better go check my "profile!"

We've actually had a previous post about the litter pearls which is really silica gel pearls. There may be some useful information in the following post: http://petoftheday.com/talk/Forum13/HTML/000060.html

It's really amazing to see all the different kinds of litter there are available now. I went to a natural products tradeshow down in Anaheim last year, and I got a free sample of World's Best cat litter from the pet department. It was pretty neat because it was made out of corn and it was flushable and all natural. It worked just like the regular scoop stuff, but had low odor. We also mention in the previous post other options like the recycled newspaper litter. There is also all natural wheat litter too.
