|Seriously lady, we think you have issues!!|
You must also know that what you feed your kitties has an effect on their 'output'. I'm sure we've all had a moment in the bathroom when looking down at the toilet and it takes a moment before we remember there is a reason why the poop looks as it does.. (what, you haven't? really? you mean you don't look and that's only me??)
Since putting the foster kittens on raw exclusively, their life long constant diarrhea cleared up pretty darn quickly, which means that their poop started looking normal and then got even better. The difference between a conventional fed cat vs a raw fed cat can really be seen in the litter box.
The first photo is to show the size of things. The second to show you how dry their stool is so that it does not pick up that much litter. After they were on raw for long enough to see this benefit I weighed the amount of waste in 12 hours. I scooped and weighed, and it came up with 1lb 1oz. Once they were on conventional food for a few days I did the same thing and it was 1lb 5oz. The thing is there was also some clean up that needed to be done since their stool was softer and it stuck to things and need to be cleaned up... so not only did we have the increase in waste, we had to use and then also throw away a few paper towels.*
*please note, that two weight samples does not a scientific study make, but this is pretty typical of what I see on a regular basis.
This might not seem like much, but over time it makes a difference. Not to mention the near lack of smell. Seriously! If you have a cat who has poop that could peel the paint off walls, you can be fairly certain that would near disappear with a change of diet. Kibble fed kitties generally have the largest and smelliest stools. Canned fed cats generally have smaller and slightly less smelly stool when compared to kibble fed kitties.
When I talk to people about not being able to feed raw due to the expense, I often use the fact that you will use less litter as a reason to seriously consider it.
