Why don't they make non-stick litterboxes?

for non stick litter, that is not supposed to stick to the litter box, but who knows, promises, promises.

https://www.chewy.com/arm-hammer-lit...lti-cat-slide/

and amazon sells a spray to spray on the box itself that will stop the litter to sticking.

Cats-got to love them, litter box-not so much.

Tidy Cats brand

I use Tidy Cats and pour down a REALLY deep layer, and I don't have any problems with any kind of litter sticking. When my cat uses the litter box, her "deposits" don't even come close to the bottom or sides of the litter box. Absolutely no litter box smell.

I also don't use the common litter box. It is Rubbermaid 15" wide, 21" long, 9" deep.

I must also confess that I am rather obsessed about keeping her litter boxes clean ! I check them several times a day !

Cat litter

We started using Neon litter last summer. It is WONDERFUL!!

The smell is non-existent, I have to clean only 1-2 times a week for one cat, and what I sift are solid - not mushy. We do use a litter box liner.

It is safe for the cats and no dust as w clay based litters. It is silica-based. It runs about $10-12 per bag, depending on where you buy it and lasts a LONG time. My primary resource, a farm and ranch supply, no longer carries it, so Iíve ordered from Amazon. I just put in an order to the home Neon company as it was cheaper than Amazon Prime and had free shipping.

ME TOO- Rubbermaid! It works so much better! I used to complain that the "cat boxes" were too small because the cats would always throw the litter out of the box and my roommate (maybe jokingly?) a LONG time ago suggested to get one of the long boxes and I did, and I will NEVER go back. It is SO much easier to clean the box.


Unfortunately, sometimes, my darling will still dig to the bottom and pee then cover it up, but even then it's A LOT easier to clean than a normal cat box!



I LOVE IT! and it lasts FOREVER (easy to clean, clean!)

Hmm, interesting tips. I need to look into them.

But I still think I had a great idea with my Teflon litter box.

I use the litter liners. So much easier to just pull the whole thing out once a week and throw it away. No residue!

Liners

We use the liners too. We can't use clumping so just take out liner bag and replace once a week. No smells (that I can tell).
