The right kind of litter you use in your cat’s litter box has a lot to do with both your preference, and that of your kitty. Some cats will absolutely refuse to use the box if they don’t like the litter that’s in it. Sometimes it comes down to compromise and other times to sheer battle of wills. Luckily, both may kitties and I agree that paper litter is the best.
For me, I’m not sure what I like better – the fact that paper litter is virtually dust free or that it is the most environmentally friendly. Dust is a huge concern for me. Not only do I not like the dirty film it leaves on surfaces of the room that houses the litter box, I am concerned about the toxic ingredients we were sure to all be breathing in. Being environmentally conscious, I like the fact that paper litter is biodegradable and made from recycled ingredients.
Nothing is ever perfect and this type of litter is not the exception. Pelleted paper litter tracks easily on kitty’s paws. As a result, the floor is often littered with these small paper pellets – stepping on them with bare feet is not a pleasant experience. Paper litter doesn’t clump and just stays wet in the box so scooping often is a necessity. although it is not scented, with diligent litter box maintenance I have not had any problem with odors.
The best part is that the kitties seem to love it as much as I do. Do you and your cats agree with what is in their litter box?
