    Lots of people go to the grocery store--where there is Cat Litter. Fewer go to the hardware store where there is sand.

    Cat liter (at least some of it) comes in water proof containers, so when it's time to spread, it's not one lump. Sand picks up water, and then when needed (in the snow) it's a solid mass.

    Sand isn't as good at sucking up fluids--oil, fuel, blood--as litter is.

    Sorry, sitting through a boring class.

    That is a far better answer than I thought possible.
