Crystal cat litter is entirely non-toxic and has no clumping or expanding chemicals like clay-based litter. Your cat is at no risk from licking cat litter crystals, which gives you peace of mind as a responsible pet owner.
Cat litter crystals are also super light, because they are made of silica gel. A good crystal-based cat litter only needs to be fully changed around once a month.
The additional benefit of crystal litter producing less dust is that its kinder to people with allergies. It can also even prevent cats developing asthma, and is certainly easier on the lungs of those animals who already have asthma.
Clay-based Litter clumps, dries, and then produces grey dust. Your kitty picks up clay dust on its paws and treads it all around your lovely, clean home. Pine cat litter is in pellets which cats tend to burrow in and kick all over. Then when moist, it turns into a weird mush that can be tricky to scoop and clean.
Cat litter crystals are winning in the clean charts, because they don’t clump, which makes it easier to scoop out the solids. The crystals actually absorb and eliminate odour, so the tray doesn’t need to be emptied as often, reducing your daily chore list! Crystal litter produces less dust, keeping your home cleaner and tidier.
It’s so important we look after our environment. Cat litter is one of those unavoidable consumables that we need to keep our kitties clean and healthy. But do we need to be changing the cat litter every few days? With clay-based litter which clumps, you might find you need to empty and refill the tray at least this often. Pine cat litter might last a bit longer before needing to be changed, and because it’s sourced from by-products of the wood industry, it’s possibly a greener option than clay cat litter, but cat litter crystals win this round too.
A good crystal-based cat litter only needs to be fully changed around once a month. This means a lower carbon footprint, as it’s less trips to the grocery store or less deliveries if you’re on a subscription service like PrettyLitter. Because less cat litter is used, less energy is used in the production of cat litter, which is also great for the environment.
