What To Know Before You Buy Natural Cat Litter?
While we are going to recommend certain cat litter products to you, it’s possible you may not find one of these that meets your needs or that is appealing to your cat. That’s why we want to take a moment and discuss some things you need to know about buying the best cat litter for your pets.
- Pick the right type- There are a few different kinds of cat litters- corn, paper, wheat, walnut and paper (as MoneyCrashers.com points out)- and you want to choose something that is safe for your cat. So, you need to be aware of any allergies your cat has and preferences for one type of litter over another.
- Beware of false claims- Just because a product claims to be natural, that does not mean that it is. It may contain some natural components and some toxins and chemicals that you don’t want in your house or near your cat. Our picks are all ones that have been extensively safety tested, but you need to do your own research on other products you are considering.
- Don’t start with a big bag- You really can’t be sure how your cat is going to react to a new kind of litter. It may love it, or it may not want anything to do with it, and you need to find out how it feels about the litter before you invest in a large bag.
- Buy for the number of cats you have- Some litter isn’t suitable for multiple cat houses, and if you have more than one cat in your house, then make sure that your litter can keep up with the mess they create and the smells they may leave behind.
We have given you a few options, but of course there are many more out there for you to pick from. We think natural litter is the best, and it is definitely safest for your cat, but you need to choose what fits your needs and what is right for your pet.
