Worst Litter! Swheat Scoop Multicat Natural Litter. Not so Flushable.
I bought this product thinking it would be a great alternative to clay litter. I live in a small apartment building and only have a 6 mo. kitten.
I studiously cleaned out the litter once every two days and flushed it as the instructions state. Still, this litter caused major clogs that backed up the toilet AND tub of the apartment below mine.
Plumbers had to roto up to my apartment and down to the main sewage system for 4 hours to clear the numerous cement-like clogs that were caused by this litter.
I emailed the company with my complaint and had the following response from "Mark Hughes, General Manager":
"I wanted to write so you knew that our litter cannot clog a pipe. If you want to see how it reacts in water just put some in a bowl of water.
You will see that it does not stay clumped, does not stay hard and cannot bind enough to clog a pipe. Wheat is biodegradable and will breakdown in water. I would bet your pipes are plugged from clay litters which are not biodegradable and will clog a pipe."
Since I've never used clay litter, and Mr. Hughes could not have known one way or the other in the first place, I have to say that not only is the product not as advertised, but the customer service is also SERIOUSLY lacking.
I will not be using this product at any time in the future.
