Pellets (pine or any kind of wood) would be the cheapest IMO. It should last longer than clay. The only downside is the wood dust but this depends on your cat behavior.
For smartsift I use standard clumping clay litter.
I have two smartsift for two group of cats. One smartsift with closed door & another one with opened door because one group know how to push the door. I put one of the smartsift in front of the bathroom & another one in the back room. I clear the plastic bag twice a day because I have many cats but I did not change the plastic bag frequently. There's a bit of sand in there that prevent the plastic bag from getting dirty easily.

BTW, after 3 years, the handle to rotate the internal litter box broken near the hole that used to lock it but I managed to buy replacement parts. Bought extra too for future.

Any recommended brand for the clumping clay litter? The pet shop suggest to use Odourlock which is quite expensive.

any clumping clay should perform the same. The regular ones should be around 16 to 20 ringgit for 10L.

bought that power cat from adabi.

my cat didn't like it.

give it to street cats. they didn't like it too.

epic failed. most probably their tester didn't provide other cat food to choose so their hungry cat have no choice but to eat it.

Need help. Not sure if this is the right thread.

I have a Persian cat. Around 3 years old. Recently I bought him a new litter box. He is alright with it. Still pee and poo as usual and usually I use Cat best. Last week I couldn't find cat best litter so the pet shop recommend me with other brand (carbon) something. I noticed he dislike it. So I have no choice but to get him those sand type of litter (he used this when I'm back in hometown)

After changing the sand type. He started pee and poo outside the tray and on his carpet where he used to sleep. Can anyone tell me how? I have changed it back to his normal litter (cat best) but he still pee and poo outside this morning.

Can anyone help me?

You cannot simply change your cat's litter whenever you like. Cats hate change, so you have to transition him slowly back and forth whenever you want to change anything - this also applies to food.

Cats also generally do not do well when you move them around because they are bound to their territory. Moving him from your place to your hometown and back probably stressed him out, as well as the different litter.

What I recommend you do is take him to the vet to rule out any medical issues, instead of assuming it's just the type of litter. Once that has been ruled out, then the game of trying to find out what he likes using and to always use that unless you transition properly begins.

My kittens' stool is extremely smelly! We've tried changing from an open litterbox to a closed one, and tried Oko Plus and even Odourlock and their smell is still very strong. I scoop their litter everyday and change their litter every week.

Now I'm trying out scented litter (Fussie Cat) but the smell is still very strong. I'm feeding them Royal Canin Kitten and the pet store guy said that maybe the cause.

Any recommendations for good litter or alternative diet that can reduce their stool odour?

a litter box trained cat if put in a cage with any type of litter, will definitely use it, even tho he don prefer tht type of litter..., so u can actually force ur cat to use the type of litter u prefer, wait for him to shit or pee first in the cage befor letting him out. biggrin.gif

Hello, guys! I have a kitten (around 4 months old), she used to eat Powercat and smartheart before, but after I found out it's not good for my kitten, I switched to IAMS dry food. She doesnt like it tho. She only eat it when I put it on my hand. I tried giving her Royal Canin wet food and she love it. Mixed it a bit with IAMS and she eat both. However now her stools are really soft, sometimes it's 50% stool with shape and sometimes it just in liquid form. Is this normal because I recently changed from dry to wet or should I just bring her to the vet?

Fresh poop is always smelly, but diet definitely has a strong influence on it. Make sure your cat's food has high protein and low fillers like corn, wheat, grains. Higher protein food means you also get less poop.

watery stool? u mean. if the frequency of ciritbirit is high, then better see vet, if normal poo time, then most likely food problem. try to stick with the type of food tht produce the best stool.

i believe iams definitely more palatable/smells better than powercat or smart heart. but iams the oren pack is not much better in terms of ingredient if u look at it. iams is much more expensive becos its made in usa, cost of iams u can get better cat food like happy cat, matisse, etc tht is cheaper.

a hungry kitten will eat any kibble given almost. but my experience is wit kucing kg oni.. lol..

it's good that you're giving her wet food. Always call your vet if you have any questions about your cat's health. We are not vet professionals here.
