Tidy Cats Breeze Pad Alternative Hack To Save You Money
I just want to start off and say I LOVE the Tidy Cats Breeze System. I switched from a regular litter box about 3 years ago and I will never go back to the barbaric clay litter system. This post is not totally about the Breeze system which I will not get too much into but I swear by it.
So, I wanted to point out that the Breeze system is a little expensive which I bit the bullet on but if I can save some money on pads then that would be great. I tried a gravel/small rock alternative to the pellets but that did not work very well. All I have to say is Japan makes a darn good Breeze pellet which is where they are all imported from. Kudos to you, Japan!
Anyway, so in the picture above you can see the size difference from the Breeze pad (Green outline) from the Dry Paw PupPee Pad. You will have to cut the Dry Paw PupPee Pad to the size of the Breeze pad and then I like to put the remaining piece to the right underneath it, just in case.
Dry Paw PupPee Pads are made by the company, The Fischer Group. They also make Delux Dry bed underpads. You can use either one for your Breeze system but the bed pads are a bit bigger, softer and more expensive than the Dry Paw PupPee Pads. The bed pads probably are closer to the Breeze Pad make and will absorb more over a longer period of time. So it's really up to you on how often you want/need to change your pads out. I usually leave my pads (Breeze) in for about a week and then change them with two cats. With the PupPee Pads I would probably leave them in for about 2-3 days before changing it out. Trust me, even with the more frequent changing you will have a bunch more to go through compared to the Breeze Pads. You could probably leave the bed pads in for 5-7 days just as long as the Breeze Pads before changing them. Remember, every cat is different and the amount of cats will change that. I have one very active box user and the other goes only 2-3 times a day.
This is the PupPee Pad after two pees. The extra piece of PupPee Pad I put under it didn't get wet at all. I will admit to you that I got scared feeling how thin the PupPee Pads were but these pads surprisingly absorb a good amount of liquid without leaking.
These are the Delux Dry bed pads. They are big enough to cut up and use as two pads.
You can buy the PupPee Pads directly from their site here: http://www.puppeepad.com/purchase/
It's $24 for a pack of 100 pads. Compare that to the Breeze Pads where it's now $7 for a pack of 4 pads.

Concluding this article, I would say go for this cheaper option if you are cash strapped. It's a totally positive alternative that works very well. You may not find a very good alternative on the pellets but these pee pads / bed pads are basically about the same quality for a lot less money. Any questions? Let me know and I'll be happy to try and answer you the best I can. Thanks for stopping by!
