this cat litter from Amazon. I have to order the 40lb tidy cats when the Dr. Elsey's is out but the Elsey's is much better... There's barely any dust and doesn't smell like anything, clumps better, overall better

u/GanonFodder · 8 pointsr/DIY

If you try the Arm and Hammer and you don't like it, I recommend Precious Cat Clumping litter.
I live in a small apartment with 2 cats and 2 dogs, and the litter boxes have to be in my bedroom. This litter is the only litter that doesn't make my room smell like piss or gross fragrance. It's low dust too, which is nice for my asthma cat.

u/decade240 · 6 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

I wanted one and I hate money... but I got sifting litter boxes off amazon, the ones with the top. My god it is literally the best thing I've ever done when it came to litter. Along with one of those poop boxes or whatever they are called that has the bag that you dump the litter into.

2 of these if you get these: Do not follow the instructions and leave the sifting pan in with the litter. Have a pan with litter, then the sifting pan, then the other pan. Take out the pan with the litter, dump it into the sifting pan, then pull out the sifting pan to sift the litter. Place sifting pan back in the empty pan, and place the litter pan back on top of the sifting pan.

It is the best system I have used and I have used almost everything. I had the litter robot gen 1 and ended hating it because it would get full so fast with 2 cats and then would get shit all over itself and then getting a bag in there was a pain in the ass and it stank

Oh! Excellent!!! You'll be so happy with your kitty. Here are some of my cats' favorite things:

(1) A view out an open window, facing a tree or some kind of natural shrubbery where he can chirp at squirrels or birds (if you have access to such a thing). Even if there's no "wildlife" in the area, cats like to look outside at passersby too.

(2) High places, like cat trees, or window ledge lookouts: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/images/Categoryimages/normal/p-21651-43327-cat.jpg

(3) Multiple sources of water, and preferably a running fountain. Amazon has one for $20 I think. Cats don't have much of a natural thirst drive but (males especially) are prone to urinary crystals. One of the best preventatives is drinking plenty of water, which cats are more likely to do if you give them a running source of it. You'll also find that some cats like to drink out of your own water cups lying around. It may not seem important that they get that much water, but my cat has been hospitalized twice for urinary crystals and that's way more expensive than a fountain.

(4) Scratchy posts and such. Keep them off your furniture!

(5) A litter box, preferably a covered one, in a private area. A rug underneath it will help with your own sanity because they'll kick the litter everywhere. I've turned the closet under the stairs (the Harry Potter closet) into a cat bathroom for my babies with a motion sensor light to give them privacy. I currently use this litter: http://www.amazon.com/Precious-Cat-Premium-Clumping-Litter/dp/B0009X29WK/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1370152220&sr=1-1&keywords=cat+litter I used to use World's Best but it was like they were crapping in crushed diamonds, it was the most expensive thing I was getting for them.

(6) A furry bed or basket with blankets. Cats love that velvety furry texture. Mine seem to love baskets, but really anything with high walls that encloses them. If you are low on $$ then even a cardboard box with some squishies to line it are excellent.

(7) Toys that act like actual prey. My cats love Da Bird and they love this crittery thing even more: http://www.amazon.com/Da-Bird-Catcher-maker-Feather/dp/B000LPOUNW/ref=sr_1_3?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1370151820&sr=1-3&keywords=da+bird, and I find it's more resilient than Da Bird (they yank on it). Toy mice and crinkle balls are also a favorite. Laser pointers, catnip-stuffed anything are also favorites. I've never known cats to really like balls or larger toys much. If it looks or acts like something they'd hunt, they basically go crazy for it. Again, if you're poor, you can easily make crinkle toys out of plastic bags (just watch the kitty during playtime and put the toys away when you're not engaging), or catnip-stuffed socks.

(8) Microchip! Collar! Kitties are good at sneaking through open doors. My cat is also insured and I've saved hundreds on his vet bills, it can be a good decision.

I can't say I'm the best with food recommendations. Sometimes it just really depends on your budget and how your cat likes and responds to food you're feeding him. If he has a glossy coat, minimal shedding, and a healthy weight, it's a good food choice. Hopefully someone else can chime in with what they're feeding their kitties!

u/WhiskeyandKittens · 4 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Mine is cat litter. Why? Because I just took weeks out of work because my boo wasn't doing well, and my paycheck is suffering. Shit sucks moneywise right now. :(

u/Sycon · 3 pointsr/litterrobot

I had this issue as well when I first got it. I had to change litters. Now I use Dr. Elsey's Premium Clumping Litter, and I've also had success with Cat's Pride.

u/newgirlie · 3 pointsr/AskNYC

I use this litter and don't have issue with odor: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009X29WK/

u/canotila · 3 pointsr/RandomActsOfPetFood

Sorry I can't help you out - we're in the same boat financially - but I wanted to let you know that this stuff right here is great: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009X29WK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=36N3KEYR7492&coliid=I37BT3LL5HHPDH&psc=1

It lasts us much longer than Arm & Hammer, is better at odor blocking while being pretty much unscented itself (it doesn't have that weird cleaner-meets-citrus smell that litters like A&H have), and it's way cheaper than Arm & Hammer ($18 for a 40lb bag). If you haven't tried it before, I recommend checking it out when you get a chance (or adding it to your wishlist if you like).

Anyway, just wanted to let you know about it. We're a three cat household as well, so we're always looking for the best and most economical stuff when it comes to pet supplies.

Good luck!

u/Treecey · 2 pointsr/Pets

Bambi used a covered litter box for a couple months but I recently took it off because I felt it would be quicker to clean. I have no problem with odor and I live in a 520 Sq. Ft. 1 bedroom apartment and her litter box is right outside my bedroom. It may be easier to just try to control the odor instead of getting him used to the covered box.

I use Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter and will sprinkle in ARM & HAMMER® Cat Litter Deodorizer Powder when I first replace her litter. Good luck.

u/Akajou01 · 2 pointsr/cats

On amazon.com it's 13$ for 40 pounds (so 18kg, so 4 box I was talking about) : https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0009X29WK/

u/blueflowers · 2 pointsr/Pets

You should try using Precious Cat Litter. It's unscented, clumps well, and is highly effective at controlling odor. I have two cats and it's the only brand I will buy.

u/franticcat · 2 pointsr/cats

This Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter plus this Zero Odor keeps my two cat household odor free.

u/lilj0nyeah · 2 pointsr/cats

I have a recommendation from a vet-student of mine: Purina Pro-Plan. It encompasses extremely high-quality ingredients, affordable prices and various flavors/specialty blends. The dry food or wet variant are both excellent for your kitty, but the dry food will be cheaper. I would use the wet food if the kitty doesn't adhere well to drinking water as the wet-food contains high amounts of water. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. Congratulations on becoming a kitty owner!

u/bookishgeek · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Some cat food. My cat eats grain-free, and a change will upset his little cat stomach an awful lot. But a recent unexpected bill has made it so hard to buy some, and I don't want him to ever go hungry. I'm portioning it out as best I can now, but it won't last long.

I'm almost out of cat litter even more than I am out of food, though. Either one, really. I'm Turking as fast as I can. God, I don't deserve to be a cat mom.

u/LexiLucy · 2 pointsr/Pets

I have my kitty set up in the guest room. I too HAVE to conceal the litter box because my dogs love to have a kitty poop snack and they dig into the litter and make a huge mess on top of everything. The solution was to get two LACK side tables from ikea (7 dollars each) and cover them with fabric on all sides with a single opening large enough for Lily to fit through. Underneath, there is a high walled litter pan and we are using Precious Cat as our litter. It is completely odorless and low dust. I only start to smell the poopies if I slack on cleaning it for 2-3 days (I know! sorry)

Whenever we have a guest over, which is rare any way, I simply move the litter box to our bedroom. The tables stay in the guest room as part of the decor and they don't even realize it was a cat toilet moments ago. And when we have people over that aren't sleeping, I can easily close the door and it's completely out of sight. I can even leave the cat in there and she'll be perfectly happy until the guests go away. Good luck!

u/Shorshack · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Frankly, I'd love a couple bags of Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter ;)

u/shott85 · 2 pointsr/aww

Buy a litter box, fill it with this. Put the litter box in your basement or a closet and scoop out the clumps every day or two. Be sure to carry the cat to the litter box several times during the first few days so he remembers where it is. I go through one of these bags of litter every two to three months.

If you have any other pets, keep the cat SEPARATED from other animals for 1-2 weeks while exchanging scents (with blankets/toys/etc.). The #1 thing cats don't do well with is change.

Total cost of ownership of a cat all depends on food. My cat eats a wet/dry mix of Wellness grain-free and Royal Canin Special 33. It's much healther than what most people feed their cat, so it's a more expensive. I'd say about $40/month. Cheap cat food will cost much less, probably around $20/mo (fancy feast classic). I'd recommend WET food over dry, dry food contains lots of grains which are NOT good or natural for cats (cats are like lions, meat-eaters!). Long term dry food will cause kidney problems.

If you decide to keep one, take it to the vet and get him tested/vaccinated/medicated ASAP. You can call the vet before hand to see what the cost will be. Take two of them!! Cats do really well with a brother/sister to play with.

u/Pizzapizzapocket · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I need this for my smelly kitties.

u/hotpinkfishfood · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

We could really use some cat litter. I think the why is kinda self explanatory. Plus my fiance lost his job last week and the week before that car issues basically wiped out our savings. He's looking for a new job now and still waiting for unemployment to kick in which always takes forever (gotta love New York state).

Edit: fixed typo.

u/ViciousJungleChicken · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Crazy cat lady here, I have four in my apartment. Unless they are lying to me, everyone that comes over is always shocked I have cats because it doesn't smell like it "should". I have two air purifiers in the house these and I have this one that sits directly on top of the litter box. I've had my four cats around 10 years and also fostered probably about... 30. So I feel like I've tried it all and I finally have a good ritual and set up. I use this litter box because it's big and tall which they prefer but also easy to get inside when it's time to clean. I use this track mat because so far it's really done the best to keep the litter from traveling far from the box. And like you, I clean it 2-3 times a day. The litter that is. I use this litter which is LIGHT YEARS better than anything else I've ever used. One of my cats also has horrible allergies and this is the one litter I've found that she doesn't react to. It also doesn't dust so you don't have to constantly feel like poofs of litter are showing up around the house or on the carpet or furniture. I also vacuum every single day. I have one vacuum I use for the floor where there may be litter tracked and another I use that never touches litter. I think this is fairly important. This vacuum honestly is the best I've found for hair. Miracle worker. Unless you can afford the Dyson Animal. I also have this spray that I'll use for my carpet and fabric once a month or so and I feel like it makes a huge difference. And then lastly I also keep windows open whenever I can and I have this diffuser and put oil in it a few times a week and let it run for a bit, plus it looks cool with the lights :) Oh! and one last thing that I think is great... put one of those cardboard scratch pads near the litter box so the cat has to step over it to get anywhere else. Like off the track mat but near the box. I do this and all the cats inevitably use the scratch pad for fun when walking by it but I'm convinced it also cleans their paws from any litter left over before they start walking around the rest of the house!

I recommend this brand from Amazon. For 40LBs, the price is currently at $13.10. It goes on a price "sale" often and the price varies a bit from time to time.

Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter

The litter does not smell and clumps wonderfully. The best part is for the benefit of the cat--when the cat kicks up the litter too energetically, there isn't a dust storm!

u/false_parallax · 1 pointr/CatsandCosmetics

Dust free litter is going to have a big impact. If you like clumping but want to make things easier for your kitty, try Precious Cat - I stumbled across it on Amazon two months ago searching for a low/no dust litter for our home. It IS clay-based, but it isn't as processed and doesn't have fragrance additives. Going from Fresh Step to this has done worlds of good in my home. I've already converted my mom.

u/SoCaFroal · 1 pointr/AnimalsBeingJerks

We use the Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter. Our 2 cats go through a 40lb bag a month. It's pretty cheap too.

u/PM_ME__YOUR_FACE · 1 pointr/Pets

Alright I'm going to be completely honest here. I live in a studio apartment. I haven't cleaned my cat's box in... 13 days. It's getting done tomorrow morning, okay?!

Anyway. No cat smell here. All I can tell you is that I use Dr. Elsey's Ultra.

$14 for a 40lb bag.

It's not even a case of "You wouldn't notice it because you live in it all the time so you're used to it." - I'd notice it upon coming home from work if it were bad. I smell nothing here. Also, decent ventilation via windows helps.

u/Kr_Treefrog2 · 1 pointr/Pets

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Ultra Cat Litter. That stuff clumps like a rock and smells nice - controls odor without being loaded with perfume. Minimal dust, too.

u/biohoo · 1 pointr/cats

What kind of litter do you use?

Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter, 40 pound bag https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009X29WK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_edvxyb609SWXJ

We use this and it's wonderful at keeping poop smells at bay.

PLEASE do not underestimate litter box logistics.

I live in a small apartment with three neutered males; 10, 8, and 3 years old, indoor only. Currently, I'm not having any issues, but I have worked hard to find the right litter box situation. The older ones have had all kinds of issues, including a serious kidney stone in the oldest, who got surgery a few years ago for it.

Maybe two years ago, we had a litter box problem where they were peeing in corners or close to the boxes. I had 4 of those igloos (rip off, do not buy) in the garage that they could easily access through a cat door. As it turned out, this was stressing out my cats. I can only speculate as to why -- perhaps one cat was being a bully and guarding the boxes, maybe the boxes were too small, maybe the sudden opening of the garage door was scaring them from going in the garage, etc...

so, to make a long story short, here is how I solved the problem:

  1. Different litter boxes. big ones. HUGE ones.

    Cats do not like to feel boxed in. They are sensitive little creatures. Although they like privacy, they also need to feel like they have an easy escape route if something scares them. Use 50 gallon storage containers, and cut a door for your kitty. Do NOT use a lid. No one likes looking at cat poop, but making them go in a little closed in box at their age could be causing the problem. These DIY litter boxes are cheap, and the high walls will prevent your fur babies from flinging litter all over. here is a good example:

  2. Switch litter, and use a ton of it.

    Now that you have 50 gallon tubs, you have plenty of space to fill. kitties like to dig -- let them! I was using the light weight pine shavings for a long time because dragging a giant bag of sand home was awful. That stuff isn't the best, and cheap kitty litter is, well, cheap. This litter had good reviews so I tried it and they loved it! Also, amazon prime will deliver it to your door. hehehe :3

  3. Litter box placement.

    The general rule of thumb is one box per cat, + one more. So, if you have two kitties, you should have three litter boxes. I have 3 kitties, therefore I have 4 litter boxes. This way, no one fights, and if one cat is being a jerk, they have lots of other options. The hardest part in all of this is finding a place for the boxes. They're big, they're ugly, and they require easy access every day for cleaning. The important part is that they are spaced far apart. Don't let your cats watch each other go, it makes them uncomfortable. Maybe put one in each room of the shop, or house when you can finally bring them home. :)

  4. Kitty Xanax and playtime

    I think I saw someone else posting about this too. The poor things sound like they are stressed. Help them out. You should also be showing your cats love and attention. They might not be around for all of your life, but you will be around for all of theirs. Maybe they are trying to tell you something.

  5. No-Kill options

    sorry about the facebook link;

    look into adoption if you feel like you've tried everything or you are simply done dealing with it.

    I hope this helps. Also, sorry for the formatting, everything is now step 1. I don't feel like fixing it, nor do I feel like it's important. :)
u/cutekick · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I started using this cat litter when I needed something I could easily order online, before I had been using Tidy Cats and this is just so much better. Tidy Cats clumps tend to break up and I had to just start with a completely new batch of litter every so often. I don't have to do that with this litter because any bits that are used just stick together so well. I recommend trying the small bag to see if you like it.

u/awkwardlittleturtle · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I took a sip of something poison, but I'll hold on tight

Not having to buy cat litter for a while would be a huge help on our ever-tightening budget!

Thanks for the contest! <3 <3 <3

u/TheGirlwThePinkHair · 1 pointr/CatAdvice

Jackson Galaxy is not a fan of the litter robot. because poop & pee get all over it inside.

this is the cat litter i use & i am a big fan.

u/EdenBlade47 · -1 pointsr/pics

>we punish him

Well like I just said, that won't do anything. Ever. The chances of that having any positive effect on his behavior is exactly 0. So fuck off with that, you're pointlessly pissing off the cat and achieving no results.

Keep the litterboxes as clean as possible, which is easy enough to do with a cleaning in the morning and at night- shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Make sure they're big enough for the cat and deep enough for enough litter (3" deep is generally recommended). Use this shit. It's cheap and cats love it. Don't have a litterbox near where they eat, cats like to keep all their businesses separate- food, water, and litter locations shouldn't be close together.

"Litterboxes" wasn't a typo by the way, the rule of thumb is that you should have one litterbox per cat in the house plus an additional litterbox. One cat = two boxes, two cats = three boxes, three cats = four boxes etc etc etc. Have them be somewhat spread throughout the house. Have one in your room or bathroom if your cat goes there a lot.

If your cat is "marking" aggressively then pheromone diffusers can sometimes help, but it really varies from individual to individual and it can take 2 weeks or so before it typically has a result, so it's kind of frustrating to use it if it doesn't end up doing anything. If you're out of options then you may as well try, though.

Is your cat declawed by any chance? Declawed cats fucking despise litter because it irritates their amputated toe stumps so they tend to poop outside of the box.
