I haven't used the clay scooping litter, so I can't give a direct
comparison, but yes the Sweat Scoop seems to clump OK. The clumps
have something of a loose structure (can tend to fall apart) when they
are still wet. If they dry out for a day or so they are more
cohesive. Sometimes you get wet litter on the bottom of the pan -
I've never seen this as a huge or unsolvable problem but some people I
know can't stand it.
There's a strong element of preference in this (both your preference
and your cat's). My cat was very tolerant when she was new and I was
trying out different litters.
We still keep one litter box of pine or cedar shavings for the cats that
don't like the clumping litter.
I'll have to experiment in a separate litter box with the new stuff. I'd
really like to start being able to put cat waste on my Canna bed again.
It did them a LOT of good.
That's part of it, although the plant looks like maybe it got too much
nitrogen because it doesn't have many blooms nor tomatoes yet. I think
those will just come later than on the plants that aren't doing so well.
I think next year when I do the "spring cleaning" in my back yard, I
will follow that umn.edu page's advice about burying dog waste at least
6" deep in the soil. I'll bury it about 10" deep under my tomato
The clumping after a number of hours (vs. within minutes) would be an
issue for those of us who have automatic litter boxes. I would really
like a "friendlier" litter, but clumping for the rake is important as it
rakes ten minutes after the cat has been there. The clay litter works
fine, but I have little choice but to send it to the dump as I have pretty
much put it all the places I can without compromising my garden. :-(
