    So while i was a searchin' the ol' internet for feed stores, i came across this weird site... Apparently this person uses layer crumbles as cheap cat litter... Has anyone here tried this? I must know more, lol.... [​IMG]

    "7. SMELLS GOOD and SOMEHOW KEEPS ODORS DOWN "


    That's the claim- it's either true or a huge giggle for a scammer. I'll give it shot next time I need cat litter!

    the site says it actually smells better.. apparently it naturally absorbs the odor and doesn't need to be changed as often...

    I haven't on purpose but saturday night I didn't know the kids shut the cat in the guest room. I have the baby chicks in a box and chick starter in a bucket in there since the bag is in the barn with most of the chickens. Next morning I go in and there is the cat, heart drops since box ins't covered with chicks. Thank goodness he didn't touch them even though he kills every mouse he catches and beats up the Chihuahua's when they go near him. Then I go to feed the chicks and sure enough he used the bucket of chick feed as a litter box, lol. So it does work not sure if I would do it on purpose.

    Really!

    That sounds like a waste of good food. At 16 bucks a 50lb bag of regular feed, I don't know if I'd want my kitties using it as litter. Then I'd wonder how to compost it without attracting rats? Is cat litter really that expensive?

    aparently, lol... I guess you could just throw it away, or at least that's what this person on the site does... One could feel better knowing it's biodegradable if they do throw it away.... i guess... It probably is esp. good for people who can get the feed for really cheap (like 12 bucks a bag)

    On a side note I saw them "recycling" cows on dirty jobs to make chicken food. [​IMG]
