I'm a multi-cat owner and caretaker with close to 50 years' experience as an adult - both with my own household and over a dozen years with cat care at two veterinary hospitals and a large SPCA facility. Consequently, I've had opportunities to work with countless different brands and types of litter and have a broad range of comparisons - and feel as though I'm fairly well qualified to pass along my opinions on the subject. :-)
For the past several years, I've had six house cat who live solely indoors.... and two kennels/stables/outdoor combo cats who are gainfully employed in the profession of Rodent Control Officers. However, the RCO's also have litter boxes available for those occasions when weather requires that they confined to the indoor kennel area - so we have a total of eight kitties requiring litter.
We had been using a "high end" brand of litter that's available only in large pet stores and online purchase..... so we were't supplying the cats with cheaper brands that gave us low expectations to begin with. It's decent stuff, and I had no real complaints with it. So, I really have no idea why I decided to suddenly try Boxiecat, other than wondering why the manufacturers felt it was worth the high price. It was, quite honestly, a whim.
I set up one indoor cat box with the Boxiecat and left the other box "as is". (I have only two indoor boxes; however, they're from a small US manufacturer and are absolutely enormous and definitely adequate for 3 cats each).
The Boxiecat was the immediate litter of choice for ALL of the cats! I'm not certain exactly what attracts them. It's definitely much softer on their little feet, so that's likely part of it. On MY part, I've found that it's easier to clean than any other litter I can recall - and there is conspicuously
less odor. And the need to put additional litter in the box as the days pass has been significantly reduced.
For me and my cats, it's proving to be worth the extra money. And having to use less of it than my previous brand will be reducing the over-all cost, thus making the price increase relatively minimal. I'm VERY glad that I tried it!
