    Where can you get it from though? ON line pref or big stores? Does it clump? Track? last a long time?

    My pet shop orders it for me, I get the organic ones, they eat it now and again:rolleyes:

    It does track a little but no more than any other litter, a tracking matt helps loads.

    Iv never known anything to clump as well, a 20kg bag lasts me about 3 weeks, depends on how many cats you have. I would say it lasts about 4x longer than clay type litters and theres no smell as you scoop all the wees and poos out.

    Just had a bit of a google session and realised you're talking about chicken feed! I've never heard for this being used for cat litter before. :confused: Very interesting.. I might look into that around my area. The best litter I've used so far is "World's Best" but it's a bit too pricy for me! Looks like this might be a good alternative? :):)

    You have to try it, ive not used commercial cat litter since, Its all rubbish in comparison. Plus when you have kittens theres no worries when they eat it:)

    It smells funny at first but its not horrible, it reminds me of weetabix:eek: the cats seem to like it

    They better go for it - I've just ordered 3x20kg bags for them to hopefully last until we move to London at the end of Aug. 60 kg is costing me £27 + £3 delivery. 50p a kilo! I think that's brilliant!
