Hi, I'm new here on this site and recently adopted a kitty from a shelter. When i was researching kitty litter I was impressed by how many people are using and liking Precious Cat Ultra Clumping Litter, so i went ahead and bought a 20lb box from petco, however it wasn't clumping all that great. I thought, maybe that batch is no good and bought the next one in a bag from Petsmart - same thing. Did the litter quality went down recently? Am i so completely unlucky in getting bad bags of this litter? Or, maybe it's my cat's digging nature? What happens is he tends to pee in a corner, turn around, try to cover his 'business' by first, scratching on the side of a litter box (obviously, not covering anything) and then going right into the wet spot with his paw - clump breaks apart and tiny pieces of dirty litter end up all over the box and i end up spending quite a while in gloves picking those tiny stinkers by hand. 'Dry' urine balls tend to break apart as well when he is digging in there for a clean spot. Though sometimes he manages to cover his pee without touching it and therefore without breaking it and if i scoop it out right away then everything is perfect, only that scenario is quite rare Should i try different litter? (I would prefer clay clumping litter) Different litter box? (right now i use regular 13x16x6 litter box and my kitty is really smal) Any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
