GREAT for pine pellet litter box!!!!
We are a cat loving family, and have 3. I bought this litter box after being incredibly frustrated with the horrible ongoing litter box smell in our home, plus the fact that we spend so much money every month on cat litter. We tried many sprays, powders, and scented scoopable litters, but nothing go
t rid of the smell. We were also tired of stepping on litter around the litter box constantly regardless of the fact that we had a fully enclosed litter box and would sweep around it more than once a day.How to:Purchase Pine Pellet Bedding. We got a 40lb bag from Tractor Supply for 5.99. Line the bottom tray with a garbage bag (our normal drawstring tall kitchen bags work for this). Fill the top tray with the pine pellets. In order to make this work, you have to put some wood chunks or something similar, on the bottom tray under the plastic bag liner (see pic). Just make sure the wood is thick enough to ensure there is a couple of inches between the two trays.Each time you scoop the box (for poop), you shake the top tray around and all of the urine dust falls and is collected in the bottom tray. When the cat/s urinate in the box, it causes the pellets to immediately reduce to a dust. We have been using this set up for over a week and still not had to change out the plastic bag liner in the bottom tray, there is zero urine scent.The best part of this set up, in my opinion, is the fact that you never have to change out all of the pellets. You just keep adding new pellets in as needed. With our old traditional litter box set up, I would have to dump all of the litter at least once a week and refill due to the odor. We have been using this set up for over a week and I have not smelled any cat urine smell whatsoever! When the cat/s poop, that has to be scooped out and tossed like in a normal litter box- because the poop does not get covered in litter, it does smell a little worse than a traditional litter box.There is a light pine smell due to the pellets, and overall the box smells so much better than our old traditional box (but when the cat/s poop, you want to get it out as soon as you can due to smell). I occasionally find some pellets that have been kicked out of the box but nothing compared to the amount of litter that would be kicked out throughout each day- and this is an open box as opposed to our old enclosed box.My experience with this set up has been GREAT. I wouldn't even think about going back to our old litter box set up. We will also be saving so much money every month it's ridiculous.Maybe now we can get a couple more cats LOL.
