Should I switch to carbon?

I have 5 cats and my house smells like ****.

Try scooping the litter box more often. Arm & Hammer make a product called Cat Litter Deodorizer that extends the life of your litter.

Now, what does this have to do with BF?

Only if they are indoor cats... apparently carbon CANNOT go outside.

Steel might be a better solution to your problem:

Go for it. The cats won't hear you rumbling down the street on your new carbon frame.

I have but one cat now, and I swear by the Fresh Step multiple cat with carbon litter. It works significantly better than other litters I have tried.

My two cats don't use the inside kitty-box anymore. When they were little, they used it more, especially when it was raining outside. But now they're going somewhere, but I have no idea where. I just keep a little box in the back of the office-closet for emergencies just in case.

Absolutely, grilling with gas just can't compare to charcoal and a pan of soaked hickory chips.

Agreed. IT's the best imo.
