Yes, regular household bleach is safe to use when cleaning your cats litter box. Just make sure to rinse the box thoroughly after cleaning.

Is Silica gel litter safe for kittens?


I would avoid using Silica gel litter in a kittens litter box and wait until they are slightly older. Young kittens are prone to tasting cat litter (simply out of curiosity). Silica crystals can be harmful if ingested and for this reason alone should not be used.

I would really like my cat to have a clean litter box throughout the day. Do self-cleaning litter boxes really work? If so, this could be a worthwhile investment.


I would recommend you check out the LitterMaid litter box. It has two sensors on either side of the box that detect when a cat uses it. After 10 minutes, a rake automatically comes and scoops clumps of solid and liquid waste into a disposable container at the end of the litter box. Keep in mind that this does not eliminate you cleaning the box.

Should I be concerned for my own health when dealing with a litter box? Can it cause any health issues?


There are some precautionary guidelines that you should follow to decrease the chances of incurring health problems. It starts with what you are feeding your cat. Stick to feeding your cat commercial cat food. Try to steer clear of feeding your cat raw foods. Cleaning your litter box regularly will also decrease the risk of contracting toxoplasmosis and e coli. If your immune system is compromised you should try to avoid cleaning the litter box and have someone else do it. If this is unavoidable, you should wear disposable gloves and wash your hands regularly.

I heard from a friend that it is not safe to handle cat litter when pregnant. Is this true?


This statement is partially true. Pregnant women can safely handle unused cat litter; however used cat litter should be avoided. Cat ***** has been known to transmit a disease known as toxoplasmosis; which can seriously harm an unborn baby.

How can I avoid and prevent a smelly litter box?


You should get into the habit of scooping the waste at least twice a day. You should completely empty and clean the litter box once a week. Scrub the pan and scoop with detergent and a small amount of bleach to disinfect and then rinse thoroughly.
