Many people think that choosing the right cat litter is simple and easy and doesn’t require much thought. What you need to understand is that when it comes to your cat you need to take the best possible care. This means that everything you buy for them matters.
There are dozens of different cat litter to choose from. When deciding what to get you should first consider the personality of your cat and you should choose one that will suit your needs. It is best to find a litter that is ‘natural based’. Natural based litters are made form newspaper, pine, wheat, whole-kernel corn, and citrus peels.
None of us like the smell that our cats create when they use the litter box. In order to avoid this you will want to choose a litter that will help to eliminate those odors.
If you think that your cat might have sensitive smell then you should consider the non-fragrance litter. Some cats will refuse to use their litter box if there is a strong odor coming from it. We might like the smell – but to them it may be offensive.
For the best odor control you will want to use clumping litter. This also helps you to scoop out the clumps instead of having to clean out the entire litter box every day. All you will need to do is to remove the clumps throughout the day and add new litter when needed. The litter will clump easily and fast. There are no additional ingredients added to the litter to help it clump – which means it is more natural.
Whole-kernel corn based clumping litter is great because it is made in a way that allows it to clump and is also biodegradable and flushable. This means that there are no health concerns to your cat.
Cats like to dig around in their litter before and after they use it. Because of this you will want to find something that is soft in texture so it does not hurt their paws.
