Here's the Scoop

Although the dangers of clumping, scoopable, and flushable kitty litter are widely debated, it would behoove the prudent cat caregiver to look into natural alternatives. Protect the health of your feline friend, yourself, and the planet by choosing a non-toxic, eco-friendly cat litter. Here are a few reasons why.

  • Clay clumping litters are made from clay that is strip-mined which is very destructive to the planet. Furthermore, clay sediment also contains a dangerous form of carcinogenic silica, which if inhaled or eaten can damage a cat's lungs.
  • Scoopable litters contain a powerful clumping agent called sodium bentonite, which if mixed with liquid will swell to a mass 15 times larger than its original volume. This can have profound effects on cats' gastrointestinal and immune systems.
  • Here are some great non-toxic, chemical-free options: Feline Pine, World's Best Cat Litter, Swheat Scoop, and Ultimate Cat Litter.
