I went to the mill today to buy some wild bird seed. While I was there I asked if they had any cat litter They did but the man in the shop was telling me that a lady who runs a cattery buy chick crumbs to use as cat litter.

I bought a sack to try this time and, if anybody is interested, I will let you know how it goes.

It does smell lovely.

Pellets that you feed young chicks or ducks etc. Surely they were more expensive. ;-)

£8.65 for 20 kilos I think.

That's pun intended. :-D ;-)

Just remember not to put the cat amongst the chickens ;-)

If you put the litter tray outside, the cat will have breakfast while on the loo :-D :-D :-D

I was thinking that I could chuck the crumbs on the garden and they would either be eaten by birds who were none too discerning or would disintegrate quite easily.

Well I have seen birds eating dog poo with flake maize in it. :-0

Think it would be handy to cuck in the garden more green I should think....What does the cat think about it?? :-S

I haven't used it yet.

Will probably change the dirt box tomorrow.

If Desmond doesn't like it I am sure he will let me know.
