What type of litter do you use & where do you buy it? Because about $13 for 35lbs is really good, in my opinion. That could last me about 3-4 months, I think, since the ones I buy now (16lbs) last me 2 months.And of course collars and I'd tags, and flea treatment if it's an outside or to be on the safe side.. I bought a 5$ flea comb at petco and brush them every other day. Bonding and cheaper (:
Ooh, I see. Unfortunately, nearest Walmart is about 6 miles away from me /sigh Yeah, a friend of mine uses Fresh step. It's gets the job done in terms of odor, not so much the tracking according to her.I believe it's 25 or 35.. Well, I get tidy cats from Walmart. My favorite so far is the black top, it's great for all my cats. I think it's 25..but there's 35 lbs for I think 20 at Walmart too. I always get the yellow plastic bucket with the black top. In my area it's 12.88 but I'm sure it won't reach past 13.the litter lasts me 2 months now that only 2 cats use the litter box. Before with 3,it would be a month, tops. Fresh step is decent also, my mom used that. I honestly grabbed the cheapest one with the most lbs
SoPhresh is actually the one I use (16lb one costs around $7) from Petco. That store is the nearest one from my place (10min walk!). But I didn't know it's from Drs. Foster & Smith. I figured it was a Petco product, like how CVS has theirs. Speaking of, what type of SoPhresh do you buy, advanced odor, dual odor or lightweight advance? I currently buy the dual odor but it doesn't completely eliminate the urine odor especially when I scoop it out.
Not wanting to *butt* inbut Drs. Foster & Smith has very good quality clumping, scoopable, baking-soda-added litter in 30-lb. refillable buckets for less than that. It's $10.44. The brand is SoPhresh. You can get it delivered to your door via DrsFosterSmith.com as well as all of your cats' food, treats, topical treatments, toys, etc. The litter is also sold through Petco where you can physically take the bucket to the store and refill it.
Eight cats? My god! Props to you. I'm barely handling this 6 year old of mine who is both grumpy AND clingy.Until the we woops had kittens I spent 16.99x 3 for grain free dry and 25 x2 for litter in and out cat 60 some years on dewormer or flea med.
Now it is insane and it been 600$ for the vet this month and 45 for litter a week and double for the dry and wet at 6$ A day
Sane folks don't have 8 cats I think?[emoji]128527[/emoji]
For all 50 cats the necessary food costs per day For All 50 is: $30.00 a day
That cost includes both wet and dry food fed twice a day for all 50 cats.
I use only Friskies brand both wet and dry. You can see pictures of some of them on my GoFundMeSite: /Cmd+VI think you can see how healthy they look living the "Friskies Life".
The $30.00 a day does not include litter since this is an all feral colony that lives outdoors, except for some nights and winters when they use the shelters which have litter boxes in them. Even though some of the cats were rescued/abandoned babies, even those cats stay outside almost all day, by choice.
I have not included the cost of treats, toys, meds, vet bills, medicine (like Lysine for some), or straw for shelter beds, which are added costs. I try not to look at my Vet costs which go on one credit card. I just pay the minimum regularly or more when I can. To be honest, I am not sure I want to know what the cost is of all the rest. I just know I have to pay it.
