I picked some up today but it isn't corn based. Its paper based and it says non clumping.
So I am a little confused on that.
Does anyone know anything about that?

Is this paper one any good?

I actually got another big bag of Dr Elseys attract to try to put it on top of my lay crumble to try to get Miss Midge to start using it.
Qtip has already started using it some so I hope that if I put the Dr Es on top it might re enforce it a little better.
So I am hoping I can get them both using my lay crumbles.

The lay crumbles are very much like the WDCL. I can get it in 50lb bags and have been using it for over 10 years now. The price has gone up quiet a bit in the last few years but its still better priced then cat litter . I almost choked today when I looked at the prices of the WBCL and Sweat scoop.

I have never had a cat try to eat the lay crumbles but then I have never had any that wouldn't use it either these kittens are the first.

The lay crumbles clump very good, they do track some what but not as bad as some I am sure.
I used rabbit pellets before I started with the lay crumbles and liked those too until one of my kitties decided he didn't want to use them any more.

I scoop at least twice a day sometimes more. I have 6 cats and 8 boxes. But the two in the dinning room and front room that I have put in for the kittens seem to get the most use guess its easier to go to these rather than walking back in the bed room to go.
I don't have problems with smelly issues unless someone is sick or I feed something new and different.

I feed my guys raw, canned (wellness or NV) and some dry and our litter box smells seem to be fairly low.
Now if someone lays a real stinker and doesn't cover its gets smelly til its covered or taken out but thats not to often around here.
I have not pee smell at all.
I clean boxes out totally about every two weeks or if they get smelly sometimes I go a little longer if they don't smell.
But I try to clean them before they get smelly.
When I had two kitties even three I could go about a month or so before cleaning them out.

A major plus with them is that no matter where we have moved (retired from military) we could find this.

Anyway I wanted to find out about the Fresh Results since what I found was not corn based but paper.

Thanks

Okay called the company 8 in 1 and was told that it was a new product and she didn't even know it had hit the stores yet.

I think its along the same lines as PaPurr non clumping although I have never actually seen the PaPurr but it sounds very much alike.

Although it has a Pine scent to it.

Do any of you all have any experience with the PaPurr non clumping litter?
Trying to decide IF I want to give it a try or not.

Thanks

I have no knowledge or experience with this litter,but 8 in 1 has been on the refusal lists many times. I would hesitate to use any product made by them.

Okay Thanks I didn't realize that.
I haven't even opened one yet so I might just bring it all back. I bought all 4 bags they had to give it a good try with my guys but I will probably just go ahead and bring it back since you told me that.

I just read something about fungal poisoning with chicken lay crumbles and I have never had any issues with this.
I have been using lay crumbles for years now and even used it in CA with no ac so I don't know what would cause these issues they were talking about.

I guess I will rethink my litter situtation.
But I do like the lay crumbles .

Thanks mel

Wow mels until you started this topic I had no idea what cat lovers go thru with litter. If I werent' allergic to cats I would have one but with a dog she goes out and I do yard patrol to deal with. Good luck in finding something that you feel comfortable using or staying with the lay crumbles.

The Fresh Results I buy says "natural corn cob granules" on the bag.
I would not buy any food products manufactured by 8 in 1, but I am
comfortable using the litter.  It has a very light scent and no dust.
