DIY: Homemade Cat Litter (Experience and Review)

My cats (pictured above) have seriously perfected the look of disinterest and judgment.  If I ever lose my humility, I need not to look far for a remedy.  And...kitties!!!

So, a couple of weeks ago, I made a post (HERE) about how I make my own cat litter.  Yes.  Cat litter.

I have been using it exclusively for awhile now, and I thought I would share my experience and maybe answer some questions that y'all may have.

Samples I Got 7/21 - 7/26

[Sorry for the weird picture quality.  I think my ancient camera may be on it's last legs, or it just somehow tried to autocorrect itself with me knowing.]

A bit of a slow week, but I don't sign up for every offer that comes along.  I only sign up for samples that I am interested in and will most definitely use.  So, I'm still thankful and happy.

A couple of these are still available as of this post.

So, I include links below:

DIY: Make Your Own Cat Litter

I ran across a recipe awhile back on how to make your own cat litter from newspaper.

I coupon a lot and our nearest recycling center is quite a drive.  Most of the time, you can't even recycle your newpaper anyway, because the bin is overflowing.  They also don't take any other kind of paper--not even computer paper.

This means I have paper in abundance, and I just can't throw it directly in the trash.  It's just too dang wasteful and just doesn't feel right.

We are big DYI-ers in my house and already make a lot of our own stuff so...why not?

If it gets those stupid smelly and dusty litter rocks and my pile of recyclable paper out of my house, it will be more than worth it.

Recipe and Step-by-Step on how I made it below:
