Any one using pine pellets for cat litter?  If you buy the 40 lb bags for Horse bedding - it is supposed to be cheap, less dust and less odorous.

I found small bags at pet smart but they are pricey. At this farm supplier near St Mary's, ON ( TSC in US carries them ) they are C$5.50/40 lbs.

 

For horses - you mix a bag in wheelbarrow with some water to make a finer and softer bedding, expands about 3X.

Urine breaks pellets down further into sawdust which sinks to the bottom.

So far I have not seen anything definitive in adding some water when used as cat litter.

Some say yes - easier to walk on. Others say no - don't want it to be too small, etc.

I'm familiar with the pellets firstly in the horse barn arena. They absorb the urine, are scooped up and transferred to phase 1 of 4 for making compost. But I also have bought bags of them for my garden, they help to add bulk to my soil, I'm on the Pacific ocean and battle sand.

If it were me I wouldn't have a problem adding water first, but that's just me. I'd let it dry, easy to do, then use it as litter. Sounds like a lot of work but it's really not. To my mind it make sense, natural wise.

I love the pellets, so versatile.
