Do you know what that word means?

I have no idea what you are asking since that word makes no sense at all in the context of your thread.
MANY others of the OP's don't either, LOL

I just had 54 pounds (2 27 lb pails) of Tidy Cat delivered to my door for $19.98. Free shipping. It is SO WORTH IT to me to have it delivered directly to my front door. I don't have to wrestle it into my cart, or lug it into my car, or wrestle it out of my car. It's wonderful. That is also cheaper than any store near me.

I tried looking it up online to no avail.
I guess, when a 5 lb bag became 50 lb. Because that amount can easily serve MANY cats...

But seriously, please read this:

I assume the change was made shortly after 2001.
Nestlé Purina Petcare was formed in December 2001, when Nestlé acquired Ralston Purina for $10.3 billion and merged it with Nestlé's pet food business.

That was my first guess but it looks like they no longer make "Tidy Cat", only "Tidy Cats".

Apparently a lot of people still call it Tidy Cat and if you search for that online you get Target and Wa;mart ads plus all the Tidy Cats hits.

Turns out the Tidy Cats website has a "litter selector" that helps you select the "right" litter for your cat(s) and they do have a version for single-cat households.

I would never bother with 5 lbs in litter - would not even last a week!

If you own one cat, you hope it is a Tidy Cat. If you own more than one cat, you hope they are Tidy Cats!

Me? I have 2, and although I use the TC brand, they are not very Tidy. They manage to scratch a lot of litter out of the box while being oh so thorough about deeply burying their waste. The insist on sharing one box, despite me having 3. Two go basically unused.

Cats are weird. But awesome.

I have one cat and luckily, he's very neat when he uses his litter box. The only litter that comes out of the box is what's on his feet.

You can buy the same stuff labelled as "oil dry" in 50 pound bags at auto parts suppliers. It is used to soak up oil spills in garages. It is ground clay.

But it's not scoopable clumping cat litter. There's a difference.
