I dont know what that brand is, but big no no!! I would switch to wood pellets, I use cozy Fresh from Farm and Tractor supply, a 25lb bag is only $5 and controls the urine smell excellet!!! and it is safe if they do ingest it.

I am going to the feed store and totally picking that up while I"m there tomorrow. A lot of members get litter at their tractor supply or feed store but I didn't know which one to get.

Bandits Mom- you can also try a scatterless litter pan. That's what I use, it has a grating on top so their feet don't actually touch their poops and they stay dry!

I wasn't sure either when I started, and was making the mistake of using pine and cedar chips. But my vet straitened me out!!! lol

The litter you were using, what type of litter is it? Is it pelleted paper?

Just keep an eye on his poops and make sure he is eating lots of hay so if he did eat a lot of litter, he is working it through.

Our vet told us to use CareFresh litter. I dont think its paper and its not wood. It works great and Foo loves it.
