The other day I was reading something and read that many people use pine pellet horse bedding instead of kitty litter.
The bag indicates “Superior Absorbency, Reduces Cleaning Time, Naturally Neutralizes Odor, Biodegradable with No Additives, Chemicals or Perfumes.
People who had used it raved about it so I figured I would try it. First, it was $6 for 40 pounds of it. The same size container of kitty litter costs at least twice that much.
While we were out yesterday, we ran by Tractor Supply and got a few things we needed and I got a bag of the pine pellets. I asked the lady at Tractor Supply if she had ever heard of people using it as kitty litter and she said “Oh, yes! LOTS of people do!” She said “I think you’ll love it!” So, we’re trying it.
From what I read, it was recommended to start by adding small amounts of the pellets mixed with the regular litter and gradually increase the pellets and decrease the litter so as not to startle and frustrate a cat. I did that yesterday. We’ll see how it goes.
