    I buy the big plastic containers. The 50% lighter stuff. $13.00/container. I usually get 2. And then have an extra one on hand. Works out well.

    When I had cats they had to go out the cat door and that they did.

    Nothing got through that little door that they didn’t want. They actually guarded it.

    Sometimes I would find a dead snake with chunks out of it like they ate some of it. lol Ravenous little kitties they were.

    You must be cheap and don't care for your cats or something. Would you rather that your cat or cats defecate on your floors/rugs then? At least you don't have to take your cat out for a walk in the middle of the night when it wants to go #2 like a dog would need to. Or would you rather get rid of your cats?

    You better hope that your neighbor doesn't get mad at you and your cat for doing that. I would be unhappy that your cat and the other cats in the neighborhood would choose my yard to do that. I had a neighbor whose cat would like to crap in my flower bed. I cleaned it all out and sprinkled a ton of red pepper flakes in that flower bed. And guess what? No cat has ever came back to poop in that part of the yard ever again!

    We buy Fresh Step scoopable litter. The one with 2 bags per pack. Here's a tip. Don't just put a little bit of litter in the box. I mean don't get ridiculous with it but put a good amount in it. And clean it out every day. It lasts a hell of a lot longer if you clean it out more often.

    Six cats. We buy 26 lb. containers of Arm & Hammer scoopable. I hate scooping that &$@,. My wife usually does it.

    As an aside, I mentioned this post to my wife. She said, “Is that your guitar forum?” “Yeah,” I replied.

    Her response: “OMG.”

    Not in my yard, buddy! Any dog or cat isn't going to like the pepper flakes that I've left out for them in the front yard. It will be a bad day for your dog or cat coming through there. I'm in a dog/cat poop free zone! No poop allowed! And for those of you who don't pick up after their dog poops in someone's yard and walks off like nothing happened? Shame on you! I've got an air rifle too.

    Get what your cat likes and what performs the best. Not what your wallet dictates.
