I’ve seen so many things about how bad clay litter is, but the price tag of the wheat litter has deterred me, and I really like the clumping litters, so I didn’t want to switch to pellet or recycled news litter.
I started doing a little research. The wheat litter you buy at the store is basically just cracked wheat, and those who were making their own, really like it. So, Chris and I went to the feed store yesterday and bought 25 lbs for $6.45. I used my dry blade vitamix container and followed the directions for cracked wheat and voila, I filled a 35 lb litter pail with cracked wheat in 1/2 an hour.
Apparently, 2 cup batches are the best to work in for the vitamix blender, you get the most consistent results. Starting at variable 1, increase to variable 7, blend for 10-15 seconds. That’s it. It’s that easy!
