Default Product Recommendation: Litter Crystals!!!

Do you love your Chi(s) but not necessarily the litter box? When we became a small dog family, my husband's biggest criticism was "I didn't want a cat because of the litter box!" Plus, I'm not gonna lie, I am a lazy litter keeper.

We have an outdoor balcony potty (it is a storage bin from Wal Mart) and a few months ago, I discovered litter crystals. We use Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Long-Hair.

Look. I know at first glance it seems expensive. But this stuff is AMAZING.

I needed a solution that would stay dry (or dry itself out) after a rain, instead of turn to mush. Basically all other cat litters are out. Wheat and corn become a heavy, soggy mess! I won't even consider clay. Enter crystals...

1/2 a container (4 lbs) fills our potty and lasts 8 weeks!!! Outside, so possibly indoors you'd want to change it after 4 weeks. Cleaning is a breeze! I pick up poop once a day and toss it, then give the litter a thorough stir with the scoop. That's it! You don't scoop the urine. Eventually it starts getting a little less clean smelling, so dump it into a bag, rinse the litter box, and refill with new crystals.

Odour control is SUPERB. Dryness is superb. If you have an outdoor potty in a covered area, but rain is still a concern, then THIS is your solution. I don't know why everyone doesn't use this!

No problem! It is possible with multiple cats, it won't last as long. I hope it is still cost effective for him. The container says 8lbs lasts 1 cat 1 month... I feel that is a bit conservative, and you'd be wasting a lot of crystals if you followed that recommendation. Because we have the potty outdoors on the balcony, where a bit of odour toward the end of the crystals' life isn't an issue, we get good use out of the crystals and none are wasted. Indoors, I'd expect half the container to last 1 cat 1 month. So about double the efficiency they suggest.
