I have been using Max's Cat litter for a few years now, but now they've changed the product. It is now sticking to the bottom of their trays like glue. What has changed with this product??? Not easy to clean like it used to be. Please change it back to the original product!
For the past 12 months in Hervey Bay we can not buy max s cat litter 4 kg at any supermarket WHY
Why is Max's kitty litter no longer available in supermarkets ?
Why has this kitty litter disappeared from supermarket shelves ?
Would like to know if this litter is made up of rice hulls? I would like to use it as bedding for my small chickens, do you think it would be suitable?
And where I can buy please.
Here is some info from their web page: "The exceptional qualities of Max’s® Cat Litter make it ideal for use on the floors of birdcages and aviaries. Max’s® Cat Litter is also suitable as a bedding material for mice, guinea pigs, reptiles and other small animals"; "Made from natural ingredients, does not contain any harmful chemicals and is completely organic and biodegradable. It also contains useful nutrients and trace elements, making it an ideal garden compost with the ability to improve soil structure"; "Premium quality product developed to cater for the personal hygiene needs of cats and other pets. The secret to Max’s® Cat Litter is Oryzalite, an exclusive blend of plant materials from Australian rice farms, which is formed into free-flowing granules. This results in a natural litter material that is effective, easy to use and easy to dispose of".
I purchase mine online from PETstock - it is $21.59 AUD delivered to my home. I have a standard order and it ships to me every 12 weeks. I have two cats and I find the product excellent for their litter trays. Check out the CopRice website for more information but I hope this is of help to you.
How have others found the litter breaks down if used as compost or in the garden?
Hi Merryn, From the small amount of research I've done regarding rice husk litter it is great for your garden if the soil contains a lot of clay; which mine does. The rice husks take several years to break down so they make the clay friable for a long time. This is very helpful to the garden and to your pocket as you've already paid for the kitty litter but to buy Gypsum or any other product to break up the clay will cost you money. The rice husks are neither compost nor fertiliser so add these to the soil as you usually do. I hope that helps answer your question. :-)
How do you remove the litter soiled with urine?
The litter does not clump and as already stated by someone else in the reviews, when you try to find the wet bits using the scoop, it crumbles apart and mixes in with the clean litter.
After much practice, I found the technique to use to remove the urine soaked litter. Hope this helps others. First you start at the shallow part of the box, then with your scoop facing downward, use a fossicking action to search for soiled areas. Keep a light hold on the scoop so you can feel the harder areas where it is soiled. As you fossick away, the clean litter crumbles down and you can sweep it aside but if it is soiled, the litter holds it shape. When you find this, fossick around it so you remove as much clean litter as possible. Then turn the scoop facing up and scoop out the soiled part.
