Cat Litter

QUESTION:

I use a plastic shopping bag every day to clean the cat litter box and was wondering if you had a suitable solution to that waste.

Hello,

I use whatever bags or containers I was going to throw away anyway: bread bags, an empty milk carton (cut open the top), produce bags, bags from fast food places, etc. Bags that are clean and dry I keep with the clean litter and use as needed; milk cartons or bags with food residue I use that day. Also whenever I need to take the trash out I take the bag over to the litter box and clean it before taking the bag out to the dumpster.

I often save the empty paper like litter bag and use it for litter droppings. You do need a safe place to store it however. I have also used the bin type litter containers to hold the droppings until garbage pick up day. They can then be dropped into a "green" garbage bag designed to decompose faster in the waste sites. There are some litters (I think Swheat Scoop might be one) that are flushable. However, there is some controversy about the safety of flushing cat waste into the sewer systems. Perhaps this will work ok for secure septic systems. I also saw an add for a "kitty toilet" in a pet magazine or web-site. I need to check this one out more to see exactly how it works. Supposedly it has a flushing system, but I don't think it is hooked to the house's sewer system. Just some ideas! ;-)
