So here's my story: I find myself traveling out of the city once each month. and I'll have to leave my cat home alone for a day to three days. I live in an area where it's hard to buy litter due to the small amount of shops to sell it, not to mention the far distance I need to go every time I have to buy some.
I had two cats. One of them transmitted worms to the other, so I had to deworm both. I also had to get rid of the old litter. Unfortunately, it's time to travel and I have but a little amount of litter, which means a problem because leaving my cat for 3 days with just a little amount of litter means a really dirty bathroom and an irritated kitty to come back to. I still needed to leave, so while I was on my way, we stopped to let our kids play in the sand, and I thought why not get some clean sand in case of emergencies like this one?
Is this a good idea? I'm talking about sand that's clean to the eye, and of course I'll make sure to check it at least two times before getting it into to my house. And my cat goes poo on anything that's put in her litter box, so I don't think she'll mind it.
