Cat Litter Substitute – Wood Stove Pellets

I had been purchasing Feline Pine cat litter because it was biodegradable. I now purchase wood stove pellets and sprinkle with baking soda to reduce any odors. Wo rks like a charm. I just make sure to purchase the smallest pellets I can find. Here Feline Pine is $5.00 for 5 pounds. Wood stove pellets are $8.00 for 50 pounds.

Do you have a vegetable garden? With food prices continuing to rise, gardening is starting to make a lot of "cents".

No need to wait till spring. You can plant a fall garden right now and start harvesting your first crops in a few short weeks.

Imagine, high-quality, organic produce right from your own back yard. It's much easier than you think and there's no need to spend a fortune.

    Beware of using stove pellets for anything BUT the stove! They are NOT all the same! Some do have accelerants in them which are not good for your pets.

    The reason you feel the need to use baking soda is probably because the stove pellets are HARDwood. The Feline Pine pellets are SOFT pine, and that controls odor better. Plus, no added icky chemicals. I could be mistaken, but I think the soft pine breaks down faster in the compost pile too.

    The good news is that you absolutely *can* get pine pellets meant for animal litter! Packaged for horses under various brand names, it’s nice, soft, pine, not hardwood, and no additives. Costs a trace more, but it’s worth it. Typically packaged in 30 or 40# bags (read that label!) and costs about $6 to $7 a bag. Just make sure it’s softwood/pine. There is a corn cob based product available which I have used for the horses with good results. It’s worth trying with the litter box, but I haven’t yet.
