The big down side to this new litter is the huge expense. It cost more than three times as much as our old litter! 0.91 cents per pound versus 0.27 cents per pound. But, if it helps Willow breathe better and extends her life than the extra cost will be worth it.
Besides the cost, my other hesitation in switching to this litter is the fact that it is made from corn and may be a temptation for Theo to eat. He gets ravenous at times and eats whatever he can find. I don't want him chowing down on the litter, albeit it fresh or used!
I took the plunge on the new expensive litter and have setup a preference test. We generally have two litter boxes for the cats to use, but for this test, we will have four boxes in operation. The options are: Cat Country (wheatgrass fiber pellets), The World's Best Cat Litter (ground up corn) and the Litter Purrfect (clay).
Sure enough, minutes after pouring the litter into the box, Theo started eating it!
Stay tuned for the results.
