Use Shredded Paper For Litter
I have a pet tip. This may or may not work for your pets, but it does mine and maybe worth trying. I recycle my shredded paper. My shredder cuts into tiny squares. I put a litter liner in the pan and fill with shredded paper, both my cats took straight away to it. When it needs cleaning, it's just a matter of lifting out by the liner. You can also lift out the used areas and refill with more.

Use Shredded Paper For Cat Litter

Cats are the great recyclers. Mine uses the newspaper 'as it comes'. I put in two or so inches of paper, a wee bit of litter on top, and only dump once a week. The garbage bag goes over the box and it's all gone. The newspaper is a super drying agent and there is no moist or smelly issues to deal with. Maybe my Minoux is a bit too easy to please but it has been five years and still works. She has never gone elsewhere. (04/30/2008)

Isn't this great!? I've been doing this only a few months. Funny I thought I thunk it up :) My cat is a real pee-er so I do change every morning. No odors no problems. Glad to recycle and very happy to pass by those litters at $7.45 every month (05/07/2008)

I work at a vet, and that is the only litter we use (besides the kind that catches urine for testing). I have never seen any cat turn down the paper litter. It works great, saves money, the environment, and your pet's health. The dust particles and chemicals found in conventional clay litter can be harmful to your cat. If you still think it's too much work to tear up the newspaper yourself, they sell a prepared version at the store. It is a responsible and green solution! (05/13/2008)

Use Shredded Paper For Cat Litter

The shredded paper litter is a WONDERFUL idea... After all the paper is already going into the landfill anyway (unless you use it as a kindling starter in your woodstove)... So I think it's a truly great idea!

I myself have decided to use organic Wheat Grass Cat Litter. I like the wheat-grass litter for 2 reasons: The first reason is why I bought it in the first place, because I can compost it for later use in my flower garden (Obviously, it's not for use in Veggie gardens!) I just rake the litter into an area behind my back yard and make sure to rake it in with the some dirt and grass clippings. Then in several years if I choose to, I can use it as mulch. And the second reason is, I absolutely LOVE the way the wheat grass litter blocks all the odor. It's simply amazing! ... The odor blocking properties of wheat grass is far superior to any other litter I've tried! All that and it won't hurt the environment.

Thank you for posting this idea about shredded paper for cat litter... I never would have thought of it... Hey? Is your paper shredded into those tiny "diamonds" or is it shredded into sthin trips or does this matter? (07/18/2008)
