Chlorox (Fresh step) has a new one called "Clean Paws" that is not supposed to track as much.. Still tracks though. NO matter what you use, it's gonna track. Wish I could be more help.

Shreeded newspaper might work.

You shouldn't even dump it down a regular toilet.

Just an update on the Tidy Cat Breeze pellet system. Been using it for two months now and the cats are fine with it. It does make a lot of noise when they are in the box, especially if you have a digger. Generally, there is no odor, due to the combination of the pellets and the gel type pad that the urine passes into from the pellet / grate system. Occasionally, you will find a pellet that was kicked out, or caught in the paw and tracked out. Overall, great product, and I am extremely pleased with it. Also, extremely easy to clean and wash out. No more class tracked around the house or RV!

Caught in the paw? Bahahaa cats aren't that innocent. If my cats can use the litterbox, climb through a swinging door, walk through the living room, kitchen, dining and front room and still get cat littler in the bed....Its on purpose.

Sounds like your cats know that they are the bosses in your home! LOL

Depends on what litter you are using... if it is clay clumping litter, I wouldn't you will get a clay sludge in the bottom of your tank. If it is pine pellets, that might float out ok when you dump... solids (Poop) only usually can go in the toilet, the rest you need to bag and discard in the trash.

I can understand that. All mine are rescues and while they can live in the same house most abide by the cat code of ethics 3 ft rule one is the 10 ft rule the other follows the I think Iím he only cat rule. With 8 cats there is not enough room for all their rules. Plus my Siamese princess of the litter box is picky and one box will not do even if cleaned multiple times a day. Thankfully she will always pee in the box often she will pee and step out of the box and poo on the floor. Even when she is the only cat using a clean box she does it. The vet says she is speshul in a short bus sort of way. Haha

I wanted to mention that for cat litter waste I put it in a bag and keep it in a metal popcorn tin stored outside. I usually keep it next to the door unless itís raining. Had a problem with dogs or some other animal getting into the cat snacks and keeping them inside was smelly. My gericat is one stinky kitty.

Breeze Litter

+1 on Breeze litter system. It seems expensive at first but in comparison to others that I have to replace much more frequently, but overall it works out to just a little more for the Breeze. I especially like the odor control and less litter tracking. I use Amazon Basics cat pads that work in the tray below the litter compartment. They are less expensive than the Breeze pads and nearly as good at odor control. I initially bought the Breeze system for our motorhome, but I switched to it also in my S&B home, where it works great as well.

For years I have been using top entry litter boxes - mine are Clever Cat, - and I use cedar bedding instead of cat litter - the kind that people use as animal bedding. You can buy blocks of it in most grocery stores, or huge cubes of it for a few bucks at big box stores. It smells nice, it is very light, the cats love it.


Housekeeping is a bit different. The cedar holds the moisture from urine, and the poop stays separate. You can if you want to scoop out the poop - but I have a litter box for each cat, line each litter box with 40 gal trash bags, fill it 1/3 full of cedar bedding (inside the plastic) then tie them off and toss them once a week. Works for me.

Thanks for sharing this! Everyone from my family was using a simple bentonite litter for ages, me also until we got a new furry member on board. He didn't really like it and sometimes ignored the litter preferring to do his business right near it. Even this one mentioned above didn't make a difference https://www.worldsbestcatlitter.com/...ed-cat-litter/

Nice setup. I read an article on this blog and I learned about disposable litters. I got a pack of those and tested it on my cat. He liked it and used it a few times, but it doesn't hold an odor at all. I decided to buy a new hooded litter as yours and fill it with tidy cat pellets. I want to choose between this https://www.amazon.com/Van-Ness-Cont.../dp/B0002ASCGC or this https://www.amazon.com/Catit-Jumbo-H.../dp/B003RQVGKC
