Hi I recently found your newsgroup. It looks great with the exception of a few trollers (don't they have lives?)
I just added two more feral cats to my home. I was fostering & couldn't give them up. No more fostering for me as this makes five cats. I was quite worried that it might not work out but they all get along & I've purchased two litter lockers which are great. My only problem is the ammonia smell from the urine is very potent. I use Tidy Cat crystals which I like but does anybody know if something can be done to reduce that smell?
Thanks for any insight.

At least one pan per indoor cat, cleaned daily or even twice a day. If you can deal with the dust, a clumping clay litter works well. There are twelve cats living with me, four or five of whom seem not to know how to do their business outside (24/7 cat flap access) and my six pans of clumping clay litter seem to work well. Actually, I am bothered more by the stench of the perfume many brands of litter use in an attempt to cover up the odor.
Odor seems to be worse in the summer, but the room with the pans has an exhaust fan - a large exhaust fan - and an openable window, and can be closed off from the house (cat flap in that door too).

How many cats are in your home using these two litter locker things? How often are they maintained and what type of food are they eating?
Are the cats neutered? Urine from unneutered male cats is horrible smelling compared to that of a neutered male cat.

There are five cats using three boxes, two upstairs, one downstairs. The litter locker is used to scoop the poop & it locks away odor instead of several bags in garbage throughout the week. One refill last ~two weeks. PETMATE makes them.
They are all spayed and neutered. I'm into the feral cat thingy. I'll look into the different litter options.
Thanks for the responses.
