    I found a Tidy Cats that has activated charcoal and is scent/fragrance free. Definite improvement on the other type of Tidy Cats we had been using in the house.

    I tried fragrance free in the past, but I just haven't been able to find a brand that actually clumps well other than Scoop Away, which I have only been able to find scented options for.

    I'll have to give Tidy Cats a try sometime. My cat definitely doesn't seem to mind the fragrance, but I don't know if that somehow effects her health

    I just try to stay away from fragrances if possible, never had a direct issue but I am always worried since animals can be sensitive to particular fragrances. What I found about the charcoal Tidy Cats (clumping didn't seem to be an issue) was that the smell was much more pleasant even when the litter wasn't absolutely fresh.

    We have 3 litter boxes and 3 cats and I try to clean them every day or other day. But ya I'm buying 40lb boxes of litter pretty frequently and may try Scoop Away just to see how they react. *sigh* the amount of money we spend on our cats, I think their food budget is almost equal to our human food budget.

    Hey guys so my orange tabby is always dealing with allergies, he sneezes alot, but I feel like he has been sneezing more than usually lately, anyone know a remedy for this? Should I just take him to the vet? I just wanna be careful because Cait get's very high anxiety if I mention something may be wrong with the cats.

    Are they cool with the three boxes? Some people recommend having one more litter box than cat, and also to have at least one on every level of the house. One of my cats peed on the floor when we first moved in, but after we added two more boxes in the basement, she's been fine. It may have also been because the previous owners had a cat and she was reacting to the lingering scent from them.

    As far as litter goes, I've been using Fresh Step lightweight for years.

    Ya they are good with the 3 boxes. We just don't have the space/energy to keep 4 boxes clean. I've had 3 cats at a time (mix of 5 cats, only had 3 at one time) for 4 or 5 years now, both in an apartment and a single story house and having even just 2 litter boxes, with constant cleaning was always enough. Never had any problems with not using the litter box except for the kitten we had to hand raise and bottle feed since she was too small to use a litter box when we first started taking care of her.

    Our orange tabby has allergy issues too. He just gets goopy around the eyes though. I got into the AC room and dusted it, ever since then it has decreased ALOT. If you have centralized air, that could be a quick way to help him out. I did that and vacuumed the hair out of our couch and their mansion and that seems to have helped. Idk your situation, but definitely trying to dust like once a week and doing a heavy vacuuming once a month or so has helped him out I think!

    Idk if sneezing is really an indication of anything unless you can hear a change in breathing, which could be a URI, but at least that’s easily treatable.

    That disturbs me beyond fathomable levels.

    I dust weekly and I live alone with no pets, am barely home and still am surprised by the amount of dust that accumulates.

    Haha it's such a cute coat, she looks like a little cow. When she was overweight when I adopted her, one of her spots on her back looked like a little heart :crylaugh:

    Fully went in expecting to adopt a black cat and all of the vet techs were like "Nooo you HAVE to meet this one first, she's the sweetest thing" and I fell in love with her immediately. Most loving cat I've ever owned and one of the few that loves her belly rubs.

    Wow, considering how elaborate that tree is, $140 sounds like an awesome deal!
