When I was wee (more than half a century ago) my Dad used to use sawdust for cat litter, mind you it didn't do the roses much good when he spread the used stuff round them and boy did the garden stink when it was sunny! I use the wood pellets but as we are in quite a horsey area I might give this Auboise a try.

Cat litter drives me mad and I dispose of it in the general rubbish bin, double bagged. I have never used Auboise horse bedding but use wood shavings meant for horses for my chickens. I wonder if that would work. I'm gonna give it a try.
Well, as I said back in May I was gonna give this a try. OH has been making bee hives with western red cedar so there was a big bag full of those shavings. It has been working a treat. Everybit as good as shop bought cat litter and not as heavy to lug around. Someone else also said they line the litter tray with newspaper first so I have been doing that also. Cat usually gets motoring or sport but she doesn't seem to mind  ;D  This is definitely making it easier to clean.  :thumbsup:   
Life is like a bowl of cherries, mostly yummy but some dodgy bits
