i never heard of the washable litter either until i was looking up alternatives - brought me to your instructable. i also found out that the "Cat Genie" uses a plastic, washable granule. i think the granules are like the pellets in some stuffed animals that have weighted feet (like in beanie babies?) anyway, a 3.5 lb. box of the washable litter is something like $23, which is ok, but if it's plastic and i can find it in a craft store or hardware store for $5, all the better, but if i can recycle something i am going to have on hand anyway, i think that would be incredible.
? Wasting pellets when Poo scooping? - Forum - Website Toolbox
Hello Starr! the pellets of the Tidy Cats are not biodegradable since they are made from Zeolite, a family of naturally occurring, non-toxic minerals. If a cat eats those pellet it won’t hurt it, but you need to make sure give your pet lots of water after the ingestion. If pets keep eating pellets they need to have the Tidy System switched to another litter box. Some customers wash the pellets. A tip is putting them in a washable bag to go in the washing machine and the dryer.
Use BBs instead of pellets, washable!
