The two most popular types of cat litter are clay and clumping; however there are a few other types that are less popular but still good. Other litter types include biodegradable materials such as plant resources, wood and paper. The newest type of cat litter is called silica. It consists of silica beads/pellets that can absorb your cats ***** without you having to scoop.

Why would my cat mess in the house on the furniture or carpet when there is clean litter trays available. Using the white latest in litter available.


If you have more than one cat then you must always have at least one more tray than cats and if some don't get on then make sure the victim has a tray in a location it feels safe from being disturbed. If you only have one cat then make sure you have at least two trays in different locations and make sure they are away from food bowls. Try different types, I have cats that won't use covered ones, cats that only use covered ones, cats that don't like covered ones with doors. I have cats that like to 'perch' so need a good heavy tray that won't tip if they perch on the edge. I even have one that will only use an empty tray ie nothing in it, maybe newspaper. Litter type can make a big difference; some like granular, some like clay, some like wood or paper, some like fine powder. Make it deep. Here is a tip, chicken feed pellets make a good litter and is much cheaper! Much of the above comes from the fact that cats don't like dirty trays so make sure they always have clean trays even if you must clean it several times per day and change often. Many also don't like to use a tray that others use hence the 'extra' tray suggestion if you have a few cats. With all these tips I still see the occasional mistake so my last tip is go to Tescos and buy the 'Rug Doctor' wipes. They are often beyond the tills where they rent out carpet cleaning machines. They are fantastic at removing odours and smells (I should not have to tell you that leaving the odour will attract repeat fouling) They also do a miraculous job of removing all stains.

Tip

Keeping your cats litter box smelling fresh


If your cats litter box is not cleaned every day, or the litter is not changed frequently, the odor will build up. Here are some tips that will help you keep litter box odor at a minimum:


Never put your cats litter box in your own bathroom. The best location for a litter box is in a small closet; preferably somewhere you keep your cleaning supplies.

Avoid using hooded litter boxes. No matter how clean you keep it, the hood will trap odors.

Try lining the bottom of the litter box with a thin layer of baking soda.

Opt for a clumping cat litter. They make it easier to remove waste.

Use a litter box deodorizer.

Be diligent about cleaning the litter box and area surrounding it


The following is a great brand of litter that neutralizes odors upon contact with moisture. I have noticed a difference since we started using it.

Is it possible for my cat to be allergic to their litter?


Both cats and humans have the potential to be allergic to cat litter. If you think your cat is allergic to the litter the first thing you should do is change the type of litter you are using. You should try a non-clay based litter that does not create silica dust. You may also want to purchase a new litter box; perhaps something made of metal or ceramic.

Why is clumping cat litter better than clay litter?


Neither one is better than the other, they are based on preference. More people prefer to use clumping cat litter. Although clay litter is cheaper and absorbs well, clumping cat litter offers more advantages in my opinion. Clumping cat litter is much friendlier to the environment, seeing as you do not need to throw away the whole litter box every time your cat releases waste. It is easy to dispose of your cats waste products and helps to diminish the amount of odors.

Where is the best place to dispose of kitty litter?


Most city councils donot dispose of kitty litter so you have to disguise it with your householdrefuse. Use Clumping litter which means when you are clearing out the littertray you are only removing the soiled parts.
