    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    I don't know about the brand of pine pellets you are using but the ones I purchase from Tractor Supply are fairly uniform. My little girl, barely 8 lb. and 15 years old is very thin and delicate. She just jumps in the box, does her thing and jumps out without covering anything and it may be...

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    The video by the woman who runs a cattery where I first saw this system recommends transitioning slowly, ie. mixing a small amount of the Tractor Supply pine pellets into the regular litter boxes and gradually adding more. You may have already tried slow transitioning but, if not, might want to...

    Hi Koco - if you're referring to the Tractor Supply equine pine pellets, based on the info I received from a representative of the company who manufactures those sold in my area, yes they are safe if they're kiln or rotary dried. The representative also said that a cat litter called "Exquisicat...

    Hi mbs! Just wanted to check in with you to see if you got everything re: the TS pellets squared away. Thank you again for letting me know the large size SoFresh litter boxes were large enough.

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    I agree - this system is AMAZING! Re: TS outsourcing - there is a TS supply store in my town but the manufacturer is about two hours away. I got the impression there are multiple manufacturers which is why it was encouraged to call them and not just TS.

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    I went to TS this morning and purchased two backs of the pine pellets - figured that will last until at least Spring. :) When I checked out the cashier asked if I was using it for cat litter. When I said yes she responded that a lot of people are doing that; it may take awhile for your cat to...

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    It sounds like Tractor Supply is getting a lot of these calls. When I purchased the pellets at Tractor Supply all I had heard in the video by the woman who owns the cattery was to "make sure it's kiln dried." Iirc, it wasn't until I pursued the topic in responses that she gave the details...

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    Interesting you mention that as I was listening to a related radio program last night; the topic was that the fruit we buy in the supermarket has been "bred" with other strains of the same fruit over time with the result that it is much larger and has a lot of sugar in it. The man then related...

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    Hi mbs :) I did view the updated video as well. Does the Large SoPhresh litter box fit well under your Breeze box? We don't have a Petco in town but can likely order it online. Re: Tractor Supply - the phone number on the bag of pellets will connect you to a call center that handles...

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    Thank you for responding, GoldyCat. Over the last 25 years of having cat companions I've use a wide variety of litters, all of which this woman states are toxic, and have cats who live long lives.

    Confused About Tractor Supply Equine Pine Pellets As Litter

    I came across a YouTube video by a woman who runs a cattery and states she found a better, and safer, litter. She purchases Equine Pine Pellet Bedding from Tractor Supply Co. and uses the top portion of the Tidy Cat Breeze system (the part with the slats in it) on top of a larger litter box...

    Hi Skratikans, I'm going through a very similar situation myself. First, this is an article that I found EXTREMELY reassuring about cats that are FIV+ , especially those living with non-FIV+ cats: Can FIV+ Cats Live With Other Cats? Finally, a Study That Says 'Yes' | Catster In a nutshell, a...
