    Newb Litter Questions...

    Okay, so I'm about to ask some newbie kitty litter questions that may be borderline dumb. (It's okay, I'm a firm believer that there ARE such thing as dumb questions. :p) When it comes to cat litter, what is the standard protocol for usage and maintenance? Do you just scoop and scoop until the...

    Question--metal litter box

    so Astrid plastic box smells DISGUSTING. So that's being tossed lol but I was thinking a metal one would work better to keep clean and the metal wouldn't absorb the smell. Do any of you guys have one or know where to get one?? Or where to get big baking pans that have sides??

    Hi all! I just adopted a little fur(less) baby, just got her home yesterday! We named her Ripley, as she is our new little alien and is quite the face hugger. Ripley seems to have a rash on her butt, tummy, "forearms" and paws. All of the places that touch her new litter. I've asked the...

    Litter Recommendations? Looking for something new to fit my needs

    I think I posted asking about litter suggestions ages ago, but I am looking to switch. It's suprisingly very difficult to find helpful articles about this, considering everyone's situation is different, so I'm hoping my fellow Sphynx mama's can help! Right now I use World's Best Cat Litter. I...

    Anyone here ever try Pretty Litter?

    It's supposed to detect certain abnormalities in the cat's urine. Has anyone tried it yet? I'm sort of surprised it isn't more expensive. Get Pretty Litter

    Hello everyone! I tried to look and see if there were any mentions of this topic already but I was unable to find them. I'm wondering what is a good dust free litter? Currently I'm using a walnut litter, which is dark brown and I find that the dust really gets stuck on Nefertari's...

    Hello! My sphynx baby is almost 4 months old, and I've had him for officially a month today! My breeder used Tidy Cats and said he never had an issue so I got the same one, and she was right, he took to it right away and hasn't had an accident yet! Unfortunately, I find that that the tiny...

    Least smelly cat litter?? Help

    I moved into my own (studio) flat from my parent's detached house and my sphynx moved with me. My folks' house had a lot bigger toilet where I kept my cat's litter and the air conditioning was better too so the smell of the litter didn't bother at all, you couldn't really smell anything. Now...
