Choosing Kitty Litter

Not so long ago, people filled their cat boxes with sand, sawdust or ashes from the fireplace. Today, cat owners have a multitude of commercial litters to choose from, but many contain toxic chemicals and respiratory irritants, as well as cause harm to the environment.

When it comes to pleasing our finicky felines, every cat guardian knows that it is essential to have many options available. Cat litter manufacturers know this too, and this is why cat owners can now select cat litters made with a wide variety of granule sizes, scents, materials and potencies. The number of options can feel overwhelming. To make this choice easier for you, Only Natural Pet Store has selected the best natural litters. We’ve highlighted the benefits of each type of kitty litter to help you determine which one is best for your kitty, your household, and the environment.


CORN-BASED LITTERS:
World's Best Cat Litter, World's Best Cat Litter Extra Strength offer healthy alternatives to clay litters, as follows:

Safe, Flushable and All-Natural
• Made of whole-kernel corn, a renewable, biodegradable and all natural material.
• Corn is edible so it will not cause harm if ingested by your pet.
• It is safe for kittens, infection-prone cats, and cats recovering from surgery.
• The flushable formulas are septic tank and plumbing friendly.
• 99% dust free so it won't cause the respiratory problems for cats and owners often associated with clay and silica litters.
• Better for the environment than clay because it is grown as a renewable crop, not extracted from quarries that permanently scar the earth.

Controls Odor Naturally
• Micro-porous structure quickly absorbs ammonia and urine odor without perfumes or chemicals.
• Clumps well and is “scoopable” almost immediately after your cat leaves the box.
• Moisture quickly combines with natural starches in the corn to solidify and neutralize odor.

Great for Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes
• Will not stick to the bottom of the box or gunk up mechanical litter box cleaners.

Helps Prevent or Remedies Litter Aversion Syndrome
• Studies have shown that World’s Best Cat Litter’s soft "dig"-able consistency and odor-trapping qualities improve litter box aversion in a majority of cases.


WHEAT -BASED LITTERS:
Swheat Scoop Natural Wheat Litter is another grain-based natural litter, offering these benefits:

Safe, Flushable and All-Natural
• Made of naturally processed secondary (non-food grade) wheat, a renewable, biodegradable and all natural material.
• Certified flushable formula is septic tank and plumbing friendly.
• Low dust so it will not cause the respiratory problems for cats and owners that are associated with clay and silica litters.
• Wheat is edible so it will not cause harm if ingested by your pets.
• It is safe for kittens, infection-prone cats, and cats recovering from surgery.
• Better for the environment than clay because it is grown as a renewable crop, not extracted from quarries that permanently scar the earth.

Controls Odor Naturally
• Natural wheat enzymes work to eliminate odors without perfumes or chemicals.
• Clumps well and is “scoopable.”
• Moisture quickly combines with natural starches in the wheat to neutralize odors.

Great for Transitioning Cats from Clay Formulas
• Consistency is similar to clay litters and makes for an easy transition from clay litter.


PINE-BASED LITTER:
Feline Fresh Natural Pine Cat Litter is fresh smelling plant-based litter that is a hit with many cats:

• Safe and all-natural, uses materials from lumber processing that would otherwise go to waste
• Low dust so it will not cause the respiratory problems for cats and owners that are associated with clay and silica litters.
• It is safe for kittens, infection-prone cats, and cats recovering from surgery.
• Controls odor naturally - pine neutralizes the ammonia in cat urine.
• Clumping formula is available with Feline Fresh


CLAY-BASED LITTER:
Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract

• Attracts cats to the litter box – the litter is blended with a natural herb attractant that appeals to cats.
• Hard clumping.
• 99% dust free to reduce respiratory irritation.


SILICA-BASED LITTER:
Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Senior

• Prevents bacterial growth - crystals absorb urine and help dehydrate feces, making your cat’s litter box too dry to sustain bacteria.
• Biodegradable - when put in a compost pile or landfill, the material completely biodegrades in one month.
• Non-toxic.
• Scoopable.
• Helps prevent kidney problems and UTIs – its crystals rapidly trap moisture inside to prevent the growth of bacteria that can lead to infections.
