How does clumping litter work?
The particularity of clumping litter is that both feces and urine are compacted and create conglomerates that are easily removed without wasting litter. This is a great advantage over traditional litter and justifies its price, somewhat higher, since it has a longer durability.
What is it made of?
Some are based on natural formulas that take advantage of extracts from peas, corn, wheat or wood to create small fibers. They are the most environmentally friendly.
Other options are created from bentonite, a white clay characterized by its great absorption power.
Scented or unscented?
Some clumping litter are available with or without fragrance. Cats might not like scented litter their sense of smell is very sensitive and they may be bothered by it and may reject it.
Tips and things to consider
Experts recommend filling the litter box to about height of 2 to 3 inches so that the cat has enough depth to dig and hide the stool. To avoid possible bad smells, it is advisable to collect daily both the urine clumps and the agglomerations of excrement with a scoop.
If your cat, after a few days, is not familiar with the new litter, the best option is to mix it with the old one until it gets used to it. Finally, remember to replace the removed clumps with some new litter and clean the litter box thoroughly with soap and water once a week. Some cats do not like some litter (about 2 to 4%).
We recommend using a mat to capture litter that might fall from the box and use an open box if your cat is not using the box.
The advantages of using clumping litter are many. Both owners and pets will feel at ease, without unpleasant odors and being able to share the same room. Although, as already mentioned, this type of litter sometimes has a higher price than others, it is very durable.
Is clumping litter safe?
Most cats will not eat the litter. If your cat does, go to your vet. It could be a sign of anemia or pica, the desire to eat things that are not food. Our recommendations are not dangerous in small quantities.
