Which One Is The Best Kitty Litter
Best Kitty Litter Practices
Before deciding on the best kitty litter for you and your cat its probably worth going over the best use of your cats bathroom facilities because how you service the cat poop area will affect its usage. In other words you can have the best kitty litter in the word but its effectiveness can be severely diminished by improper use. Firstly, always layer about two inches of kitty litter in the tray. This gives puss enough depth to bury his doings and it soaks up the wet stuff better too. You should remove any solids (cat poop) as soon as they are spotted. Also mix any damp clumps in to the drier litter so they are absorbed more efficiently. If you follow this routine you shouldn’t need to change the contents of the litter tray completely more than around once a week. Obviously if there is more than one cat using the poop station you should cut that time interval down by around half say for instance every 4 days for two adult cats if they are house pets that don’t do their business outdoors.
The Best Kitty Litter For You
There are basically two types of cat litter, clumping and none clumping. The former clumps together when its wet and the latter remains separated after use. Many experts argue that the best kitty litter is the clumping type because it behaves more like the loose earth a cat would normally bury its doings in outdoors. The other advantage of clumping litter is that the waste especially the wet stuff is more easily spotted and removed. The opposite effect occurs of course with the none clumping type because the urine soaked granules are in effect staying in the tray until the whole contents are changed. For this reason it may be prudent to use a scented or deodorising type of the none clumping types. It is also worth considering using such products if the tray is kept in a restricted space with minimal ventilation or maybe an apartment that is locked up all day.
Choosing The Best Kitty Litter
Both clumping and none clumping litters are usually clay based but the none clumping is most likely to be scented. Some cats (having amazing senses of smell) don’t take to the scented stuff but there is an alternative for owners who feel that none clump is the best kitty litter for them. These litters are crystal based being made from a blend of sands. They work very well in the odour control department and they are also dust free. It is highly absorbent but it doesn’t form lumps so once again its important to change the contents of the cat loo at least once a week when using this type of litter. The other attraction of this type is that its biodegradable and you can flush it down your toilet even if your sewage system uses a septic tank. Talking of biodegradables and green issues (I am anyway) there are a few natural products coming onto the market too. These are made from such things as recycled paper, pine, and even wheat or corn. They are available in clump and none clump types too. They tick a lot of positive boxes too like low dust and none allergic as well has maximum odour control. They are usually in a pellet form that turns to powder after use.
