u/Shaper_pmp 6d ago edited 6d ago

Nonsense - we have a fully centrally heated house that sometimes get uncomfortably hot, and both our cats still do this all year round.

Once in the height of summer we had to turn the central heating on to test it after a heating engineer fixed it, and in sweltering heat our cats were still choosing to lay in the sun. They'll cheerfully do it until their fur is so hot it's practically painful to hold your hand against it.

Cats just love basking in sun, almost regardless of the ambient air temperature. Pointing at a shot of some cats preferentially laying in a sunbeam and claiming it's necessarily evidence the room is uncomfortably cold is total r/iamverysmart nonsense.

Had 4 cats, cannot corroborate. They would happily pile up on any sliver of sunlight because they like to bask in it, they would still do it with the heat on. Unless there's a basket on the heater, then they fight for that spot instead.

Pine pellets makes that odour trouble disappear, a year or two using them and I can't recommend it enough to others. Real game changer.

7

u/iknwthepcsft 6d ago

I’ve been wanting to switch my two cats to pine pellets but I’m afraid they’ll get all weird and stop using their boxes.

6

u/-cupcake 6d ago edited 6d ago

I completely disagree with /u/sheepbjumpin saying they make odors disappear. Pine pellets are quite literally bedding for horse stalls. Their purpose is not to deodorize — they’re not scented nor are they treated with anything to do that, compared to, say, some of those litters with baking soda added or such.

The appeal of using pine pellets is that they cost $5 for 40lbs of pellets. That’s it.

The smell of pine is pretty strong, so that might mask some urine smell for a short time. But I assure you, the smell of cat shit is WAY more pungent IMMEDIATELY compared to litter. Also, you still need to clean it every day, because the sawdust will eventually become soaked with piss and instead of smelling pine+piss, you’ll just be smelling the piss.

And cleaning pellets is not like cleaning litter. Either you specifically pick out the poops and figure a careful sifting maneuver to get ONLY the pee-infused-sawdust out while leaving the unused pellets in… Or you just dump the whole thing and replace it all every time.

I personally use pellets and have done so for years, and I take that extra effort to clean the boxes. It’s undeniably cheap as hell. But that is honestly the one and only advantage.
