Kitty Litter Substitutes

  1. Wood shavings

  2. Sand and sawdust

  3. Dirt or sand

  4. Shredded paper from your paper shredder

These are all compatible with composting and can be used to make compost after kitty is done. If it makes you squeamish to use it on food crops, which I have done with no ill effects, just use it for your flowers or trees after composting.

Kitty Litter Substitutes

Thank you for the advice. I have worked for a Veterinarian for over 27 years and it is our experience that wood shavings/sawdust can cause upper respiratory infections in cats. I would also be careful of the dirt as it can contain organisms that can cause illness. The paper shredding is a great idea. (04/01/2010)

Everyone should do what I did. Get a cat door. Put the litter box outside. Works great. I use wood pellets.
