What are yours?
I have a 7.5 year old male cat who I've had since he was almost two. I've always used clay-based clumping litter with him, but recently got really tired of the dust it would create when I'd scoop or the dusty paw prints I'd find. I'm lucky that he's not picky and will use any brand as long as it clumps. Recently though, I switched his litter to World's Best, which is corn based and has almost no dust. I mixed in the last of his old litter with a bit of the new and he took to it right away without hesitation. I was a little worried since it's finer than clay that he'd have issues with its texture or the smell, since it's got a bit of a corn-y scent to it.
His box is a Clevercat top entry box. When we first brought him home, we had just a standard covered box for him and he used that for years. When I moved out, he came with me and transitioned to the Clevercat without any issues. I showed him where the box was once and that was it. If I ever get a new box at some point though, I'll probably just make my own out of a high-sided Rubbermaid storage bin and save myself $30.
dk/dc: what's for dinner tonight?
