How does cat litter affect pregnancy

The early stages of pregnancy can be a very exciting but also a very worrying time, and one of the concerns that many pregnant women have is becoming infected with toxoplasmosis.

This is a parasitic infection that can be present in cat litter and cat feces, so if the pregnant woman comes into contact with infected feces then it can be passed on to the unborn baby which can cause serious birth defects.

how does cat litter affect pregnancy

Although the condition is very rare, it can also be very serious so it is well worth taking some simple precautions if you are in the three first months of pregnancy to avoid having to give away your beloved family pet:

Simple precautions

The best precaution to take is to ask another member of the household to change the litter tray. This will, of course prevent you from coming into contact with any of the litter or cat feces.

If this is not possible, then you should change the litter box on a daily basis as it takes 48 hours for the organisms in the feces to become infective if your cat is infected with toxoplasmosis.

If you do have the change the litter tray, then you should wear disposal rubber gloves and make sure you wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.

Other precautions to take include wearing good quality gardening gloves if you are digging in soil, as you never know when you may come across cat feces in the garden from your own cat or neighbouring pets. You should also wash your hands thoroughly after coming into contact with any cats and keep children’s sand play areas covered just in case.

 

It is worth bearing in mind that even having said all of the above, it is very unlikely that you will pick up any infections from your cat, especially if they stay indoors and don’t eat any raw meat. You may also be immune if you have been around cats for some time.

 

 

Coming into contact with cat litter is not the only way that you may become infected with toxoplasmosis, as the parasite can also be found in unwashed vegetables or undercooked meat, so it is worth taking extra precautions when handling and cooking food as well.

There are plenty of things to be thinking about in the first few months of pregnancy, so make sure that toxoplasmosis is not one of these by minimising any contact that you need to have with cat litter. However, if you do have concerns and feel that you may be at risk then you can contact your GP or midwife for a blood test.

You can then enjoy the months ahead with planning for your new arrival, and making sure that the family pet is part of all of this.

Outdoor Cat Litter Tray

An outdoor cat litter tray can be useful for a variety of different reasons, and although most of the litter trays available are for indoor use there are some litter boxes that are designed to be kept outside.

Benefits of an outdoor cat litter tray

The main benefits of an outdoor cat litter tray are:

  • It will reduce the amount of waste inside the house, even if used in conjunction with an indoor tray. This is especially useful if you have multiple cats, as it is recommended to provide at least one tray per cat.
  • Many cats don’t like using indoor litter trays, especially if they spend a lot of time outdoors. Although being outside is great for the cat’s wellbeing, this can mean that cat waste appears on yours or your neighbour’s garden if they don’t come inside to use the litter tray.
  • An outdoor cat litter tray is a great solution for this, as it will provide the cat with somewhere private to use the toilet while at the same time it consolidates the waste to a single area.
  • This will make cleaning the outdoor area much easier as well as providing peace of mind that your cat is not leaving their waste around the neighbourhood.

It is possible to build your own outdoor cat litter tray, but another option is this Cosmic Outdoor Cat Litter Tray by Ferplast, which is available for just over £30.

Cosmic Outdoor Cat Litter Tray

Cosmic Outdoor Cat Litter TrayBuy now  £31.95

 

This litter tray is made from hardy thermoplastic resin, and it features a robust hood which is waterproof so it will keep out any moisture and will protect your cat against the elements.

This newly designed tray features an innovative entrance system, which includes a tunnel to lead the cat inside. This makes it easy for the cat to access the tray, but is much more difficult for dogs you may want to keep out of the litter tray.

Inside the litter tray, there is plenty of privacy and space for even the largest of cats and the high sided base keeps the litter from spilling out.

It is also easy to clean, as the hood can be unhooked from the base during cleaning. The safe sealing system prevents the tray from opening accidentally.

This outdoor cat litter tray is the ideal solution for cats that just don’t like using indoor litter trays or if you have a problem with the cat using gardens or similar areas as a toilet. It is also a great option if you have a small dog in the household as it means they won’t be able to access the litter.

The futuristic design with black and white colours looks good on the patio, the balcony or just outside the back door – and this tray can also be used inside as it comes with an active carbon filter to prevent the spreading of odours.

If you do decide to use an outdoor cat litter tray, you will still need to decide upon the best cat litter to use in the tray. Check out our Ultimate Cat Litter Guide on our home page for tips and advice!

 

Clean N Tidy Cat Litter

Clean N Tidy Everyday Cat Litter

Clean N Tidy Everyday Cat litterBuy now   £13  (15kg)

 

Clean N Tidy Cat litter is one of the best clumping litters available, and is one of our recommended choices in our Ultimate Guide to Cat Litter on our home page.

Tightly bound clumps

The main reason that Clean N Tidy Cat litter is rated so highly is because it consists of very fine granules which make tightly bound clumps when they come into contact with moisture.

The clumps remain separated and loose from the rest of the litter, which makes it very easy to remove the clumps from the tray for easy disposal.

 

You can then top up with fresh litter without having to change the entire tray, which means you will use less litter over the long run and a bag of Clean N Tidy Cat litter should last you much longer than a similar size bag of a poorer quality litter.

Other features of Clean N Tidy cat litter are that it is almost dust free and it is formulated with a moisture activated, all natural fragrance so it conceals the odours very well.

As the litter consists of such fine granules, this means that some tracking may be possible with Clean N Tidy Cat litter if some of it gets caught in the cat’s paws.

This problem can be reduced with a good cat litter mat, but this is only really a minor downside and many users of this product have found that tracking is no more a problem with this litter as with other brands.

Clean N Tidy Cat litter is available in 2 different sizes, as you can buy 7kg for £6.49 or 15kg for £13. Although this is more expensive than many of the budget cat litters on the market, it provides excellent value for the reasons listed above as the tightly bound clumps mean that the litter will last for much longer.

This is also a much cheaper price than you will pay for some other high quality clumping cat litters such as World’s Best Cat Litter which will cost around £14 for a 6.35kg bag, making it almost twice as expensive.

Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat Litter

Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat LitterBuy now  £9 – £10  (7kg)

 

Clean N Tidy also offer an option for multiple cat litter if you have more than one cat in the home.

Although it is recommended to have a litter tray for each cat, it is recognised that this is not always possible so a multiple cat litter is a good solution in this situation.

Multiple cat litters tend to offer more clumping power, and this litter includes a specially formulated, tightly bound solution with extra strength to effectively break down odours.

This means that the litter works in a similar manner to the Everyday cat litter, as the granules form into tight clumps when they come into contact with moisture.

 

It is environmentally friendly and 99% dust free, and the solution includes botanical essences to reduce odours – which is essential when more than one cat is using the tray!

Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat litter is available for between £8 – £10 for a 7kg bag, so makes an excellent choice for cat owners with multiple cats.

Benefits of Non-Clumping Cat Litter

When you are deciding on the best type of cat litter for you and your pet, one of the first choices that you will have to make is whether to use clumping or non-clumping cat litter.

Traditionally, many cat owners have preferred clumping litters such as bentonite clay litters, but non-clumping cat litters such as wood pellet cat litter, silica cat litter and paper cat litter are increasing in popularity.

The main difference between clumping and non-clumping cat litters is that the litter absorbs the moisture instead of forming into clumps.

So with such a wide choice of litters now available, many cat owners are asking:

What are the benefits of non-clumping cat litter?

  1. Absorbency

One of the main benefits of non-clumping cat litter is that it is usually very absorbent. This is especially true of wood pellet cat litter, where the natural elements of the wood can quite often absorb a large amount of moisture.

This is also true of silica cat litter, which comprises of large, solid granules of sodium silicate. These granules are super absorbent, so they absorb a lot of moisture and some manufacturers of silica cat litter claim that you will only need to completely change the tray a couple of times a month!

  1. Ease of use

In general, trays of non-clumping cat litters will not need to be changed as often as clumping cat litter and they are also easy to use as it is simple to change the tray and dispose of the litter.

Some wood pellet cat litters can be deposited onto the compost heap, which will reduce the amount of waste and is also good for the environment.

It is also possible to flush some non-clumping cat litters down the toilet, and one of the leading brand is World’s Best Cat Litter. Although this is technically classed as a clumping cat litter, the clumps do disintegrate when they come into moisture for a second time making it possible to flush them.

  1. Masks the smell

Wood pellet cat litter is a natural product, so this does help to mask and reduce the smells associated with cat litter.

The pellets can usually hold the ammonia smell quite well, and many litters are now scented. Although this can help to reduce the smell further, be careful when using scented cat litters as a strong scent can put your cat off from using the litter tray completely.

  1. Dust free

Although it is almost impossible to find a completely dust free cat litter, some non-clumping cat litter such as paper cat litter will contain a lot less dust than traditional clumping litters.

Dust free cat litters are very good for cats that may have respiratory problems, and there are some excellent options available such as Pettex Premium Grey Cat Litter.

We have reviewed several types of non-clumping cat litter on this website, including Breeder Celect cat litter, Catsan Hygiene Litter and Pettex Pampuss just to name a few.

As with all aspects of finding the best cat litter, you may need to experiment with a few different brands and types of litter before you find one that you and your cat are happy with!

 

Large Cat Litter Tray

Cat litter trays are available in all shapes and sizes, with options ranging from small plastic trays to trays with a hood for more privacy and automatic litter trays.

We have already looked at recommended options for small cat litter trays and corner cat litter trays, and there are also plenty of options available if you are looking for a large cat litter tray.

There may be several reasons why you may require a large cat litter tray, and perhaps the most obvious of these is if you have one of the larger breeds of cat.

Some of the largest domestic breeds of cat are the Maine Coon, the Ragdoll, the Ragamuffin, Siberian and the Savannah – which is recognised as the largest domestic cat breed overall but relatively rare within the UK.

Large cat litter trays are very spacious so you may just want to treat your cat if you have extra space available where the litter tray is kept.

Some cat owners may also use a large cat litter tray if you have multiple cats – although it is recommended to have a separate litter tray for each cat if you can. This is a subject we have discussed in our post on multiple cat litter.

Best Large Cat Litter Trays

There are several large (or jumbo) sized litter trays available, so the best one for you will depend upon your budget and other factors such as whether you prefer a Hooded Litter Tray.

These types of tray have several benefits, as they offer the cat privacy and they are also more hygienic and reduce odours. However, they can be more expensive than a basic plastic tray.

Petmate Stay Fresh Litter Tray Jumbo Pearl Silver

 

Petmate Stay Fresh Large Litter TrayBuy now  £12.99

 

The most economical large cat litter tray that is recommended is the Petmate Stay Fresh Litter Tray which is available in an elegant Pearl Silver Colour.

The tray includes an easy grip rim so it is easy to pick up and empty, and it includes microban antibacterial product protection to protect against stain and odour causing bacteria. This also helps to limit odours which can be a problem with open trays like this.

This is a large litter tray with dimensions of 55cm x 43cm x 16.5cm depth, so it is large enough for a big cat to turn around and dig until their hearts content. The sides are also quite high which stops waste escaping, although the low front provides easy access for the cat.

The ribbed design, wipeable insides and high polish finish make it easy to clean and maintain, and this tray would make a subtle addition to your home.

It is available for just £12.99.

 

Nobby 72184 “Aseo Jumbo” Cat Litter Tray with Rim

 

Nobby 72184 Aseo Jumbo Litter TrayBuy now   £22 

 

Another open “jumbo” or large cat litter tray is this extra large tray available in a stylish navy blue.

This tray is larger than the Petmate tray, with dimensions of 67.5cm x 48cm x 28cm so it truly is a jumbo sized tray for larger cats or those which prefer more space.

It is a very deep tray which helps to stop litter escaping, although the access point at the front of the tray is low enough for cats to enter easily. The extra depth helps to stop the waste escaping from the tray or cats kicking the litter out when they dig, which can be a problem with smaller trays.

The extra size does make this tray more expensive and it is generally available for around £22.

 

Catit Jumbo Hooded Cat Pan (Grey)

 

Catit Jumbo Hooded Litter TrayBuy now  £28.99

 

If your cat prefers a hooded litter tray then an excellent option is this Jumbo Hooded Cat Pan from Catit.

Hooded cat litter trays have several benefits, and as well as the obvious advantage of providing extra privacy for the cat they keep the litter contained and also limited the odours that can escape from an open litter tray.

This large cat litter tray measures 57cm x 46cm x 46.5cm, so there is plenty of space for large cats and an extra feature is that the large hood lifts up for easy cleaning.

A carbon impregnated filter traps and removes odours effectively, while the built in anchor bag helps keep the bag open while the hands are free for scooping.

Although this tray looks quite bland from the outside, it is a favourite among large cat owners that prefer hooded trays and it won’t break the bank for £28.99 considering the size of the tray and the features included.

Jumbo Sized Covered Litter Tray XXL

 

jumbo sized cat litter trayBuy now  £27.99

 

An even bigger large hooded cat litter tray is this tray which is also great for very large cats.

It measures 66.5cm x 48.5cm x 46.5cm, so it is even larger than the Catit tray. Features include a large, removable swing door, a carbon filter and removable hood.

It is available for £27.99.

 

 

These are just some of the large cat litter trays available, so if you do own a larger cat or would like to give your pet more space in their tray there should be a good option available for you.

 

Breeder Celect Cat Litter

Breeder Celect Cat Litter

 

Breeder Celect Cat LitterBuy now  £8.85 (10 litres, 20 and 30 litre packs also available)

 

Breeder Celect Cat Litter is one of the most highly rated cat litters available and it is very popular with cat owners.

This is a paper cat litter, which is made from 99% recycled paper and comes in the form of compressed cylindrical pellets.

There is an interesting back story behind Breeder Celect Cat Litter, as the company originally collected and processed paper and cardboard for paper mills, before developing the technology to convert old newspapers into absorbency products for domestic use.

 

As it is a paper cat litter, then Breeder Celect Cat Litter enjoys all of the following benefits:

  • It is dust free, so it is very good for cats that have any allergies or respiratory conditions. This also means that there is no dust attracted to your cat’s paws that may then be walked around the house.
  • It is soft on cat’s paws, so it is ideal for cats with recent surgical wounds or for a declawed cat that requires soft surfaces.
  • There is no fragrance, which can be an advantage as some cats will refuse to use a litter box with scented litter.
  • The recycled newspaper pellets are good for the environment as there are no additives or chemicals, it is biodegradable and they are easy to dispose of.
  • The pellets are very absorbent, which means the tray is easy to clean.

Breeder Celect Cat Litter is also a good choice for kittens, as it is non-toxic so it is not dangerous if they ingest any of the pellets. This means that Breeder Celect and other forms of paper cat litter are much better options for kittens than some other litters such as silica cat litter.

If you do decide that this is the best cat litter for you, then it is recommended that you fill the litter tray with between 2–4 cm of litter. If you are making the transition from another type of litter, then a good idea is to sprinkle some of the paper pellets over the existing litter and then add new pellets daily.

As with all cat litters, it is important to change the litter tray on a regular basis, although it is not a good idea to flush Breeder Celect Cat Litter down the toilet as the paper pellets may expand and cause a blockage.

Maintaining the litter tray is straightforward, as you should remove waste regularly and stir the pellets to aerate. You can top up with fresh pellets, but make sure the tray is completely changed at least once a week.

Breeder Celect Cat Litter is now available in packs which feature newly designed handles making them easier to lift and carry. The packs also include an easy to pour spout, giving more control over the litter going into the tray.

Breeder Celect is available in packs of 10, 20 or 30 litres, and although it is more economical to buy the larger packs this is a lot of litter that will keep you going for quite some time.

The 10 litre pack is available for £8.99 and the 30 litre pack is priced at £15.59. These prices are similar to Bio-Catolet which is another good quality paper cat litter.

A paper cat litter won’t be the preferred choice for all cats and their owners, but those who use it on a regular basis enjoy plenty of benefits as well as knowing it is good for the health of their cat and the planet.

Multiple Cat Litter

Many cat owners have more than one pet, and although this trend is generally showing some signs of increasing it can cause some areas of conflict.

Cats are naturally solitary animals, but can be very adaptable to living in group conditions. There is a huge amount of advice available regarding owning more than one cat which is beyond the scope of this blog, but one area that we can concentrate on is the use of litter trays and multiple cat litter in households with more than one cat.

Multiple cat litter solutions

The best solution to having more than one cat is to offer a litter tray for every animal, with maybe an extra tray thrown in for good measure. There are several reasons to this, but the main one is that many cats will simply not want to share their litter tray.

Cats are very territorial, so some cats may block access to the tray to other cats in the household. This can cause stress related illnesses and problems for the other cats if they don’t have a safe place to use the toilet.

It is also very difficult to keep a single litter tray clean enough for multiple cats, especially if you are going to be out of the house for long periods of time.

Cats will be get very anxious if they can’t find a clean part of the litter tray and this can also cause health problems.

Best Multiple Cat Litter

Although offering a tray for every individual cat is recommended, it is recognized that this is not always possible. It may be that you live in a small flat or just don’t have the space for more than one litter tray.

Everclean Multiple Cat Litter

Everclean Multiple Cat LitterBuy now  £15.99

 

There are some cat litters on the market which are designed for multiple cat households, and one of the recommended brands is Everclean Multiple Cat litter.

Multiple cat litter tends to offer more clumping power, which means that it should be easier to scoop and offer more odour control.

Everclean Multiple Cat Litter is made up of premium clay granules which are bonded to an odour neutralizing carbon, so this helps to prevent liquid waste from reaching the bottom of the tray.

Scooping is less of a chore thanks to the firm and solid clumps which are formed, leaving the rest of the litter dry for further use.

Everclean multiple cat litter is available in a 10 litre bag for £15.99, but this does provide good value as a small amount of the litter should last for a long time.

 

Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat litter

Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat LitterBuy now  £8 – £10  (7kg)

 

Another option is Clean N Tidy Multiple Cat litter, which is slightly less expensive as it costs between £8 – £10 for a 7kg bag.

This litter is environmentally friendly and almost dust free, which helps to reduce the mess from cat paws. The specially designed solution including botanical essences reduces odours and is ideal for homes with more than one cat.

It offers an extra strength clumping solution, with a tightly binding litter for maximum absorption.

Owning more than one cat can be very rewarding, although special consideration should be made if you are thinking of bringing an extra cat into your home.

Making sure your cats are happy with their litter trays and the cat litter you use can help to make your cats feel comfortable in their environment, leaving you to concentrate on the pleasures and companionship that multiple cats can bring!

Ever Clean Cat Litter

Ever Clean cat litter has been around since 1987, when it was established as America’s first ever clumping cat litter.

It is now available in four different formulas, and the premium clay granules combined with the odour-neutralizing carbon means that it is still one of the leading clumping cat litters available.

Ever Clean Cat Litter Extra Strength

 

Ever Clean Extra Strength unscented cat litterBuy now  £15.99 (10 litres)

 

One of the aspects to consider when choosing the best cat litter for you and your cat is whether you prefer your litter to have a scent.

Ever Clean Extra Strength Cat Litter is available in both scented and unscented versions, and both have their pros and cons.

Although a nicely scented litter can take away the unpleasant odours of the litter tray, some cats will find the scent over powering and it may deter them from using the tray altogether. However, If you do use unscented litter then you may have to put up with some unpleasant smells!

Both of these litter use quality ingredients with a premium blend of natural minerals and clays. This means that the litter clumps together very well when it comes into contact with moisture, making it easy to scoop out of the tray and to keep on top of the waste.

The scented version of this litter includes a fresh, clean scent that is released on contact with moisture, so it only works when required. It may be worth experimenting with both versions of Ever Clean cat litter Extra Strength to find out which your cat prefers.

Available for around £15 for 10 litres, this will last you for about a month so it is certainly not the cheapest litter on the market. However, it does get great reviews and is a premium brand.

Ever Clean Multiple Cat litter

 

Ever Clean Multiple Cat LitterBuy now  £15.99 (10 litres)

 

If you have more than one cat in your home, then you will need to consider how to manage the litter trays. Do you have a litter tray for each cat or should each cat use the same tray?

The Ever Clean Multiple Cat litter is designed to solve this problem, with maximum clumping power and extra odour control. This litter uses enhanced carbon technology that eliminates odours, trapping them in the litter instead of masking them.

It also includes a paw-activated fragrance technology which release scent on demand.

It is recommended to fill the litter tray quite deeply, as although this uses more litter it keeps the litter fresh and helps you to identify the clumps. It is very economical once a deep fill has been established.

As with the Extra Strength litter, it is manufactured using premium materials so the clumps don’t break up like they may do with a cheaper litter.

It is available for the same price of £15.99 for 10 litres so should also last for around a month.

Ever Clean Less Trail Cat Litter

 

Ever Clean Less Trail Cat LitterBuy now £15.99 (10 litres)

 

This version of Ever Clean cat litter includes larger clay granules. This means they are less likely to stick to paws, so it is ideal for kittens and long haired cats reducing tracking.

The super premium clumping litter also includes the carbon technology to reduce odours, with paw activated fragrance.

If you prefer a scented litter, then Ever Clean cat litter can be purchased with several different fragrances including Lavender and Aqua Breeze. It is also available in different sizes, with 6 litre and 10 litre boxes available, so if you decide that Ever Clean cat litter is the best cat litter for you then you should be able to find a formula for your needs!

 

Small Cat Litter Tray

Litter trays come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from basic plastic trays to advanced litter trays with covers and automatic filters.

There are a number of reasons why cat owners may prefer a small cat litter tray, and these range from having small cats or kittens, needing a travel solution or only have limited space at home.

Corner litter trays

One solution to limited space is a corner litter tray,, as these are quite small and make the most of all of the available space in your home. Corner litter trays can fit into all of the nooks and crannies and can also be quite discreet, offering the cat plenty of privacy.

We have reviewed some recommended corner litter trays on a previous post, as this type of tray is set to become more and more popular as people’s lives become busier and modern homes become smaller.

Litter trays for kittens

If you have just bought a kitten into your home, then litter training will be part of introducing her to being part of the family. Although it is sometimes recommended to use a standard sized litter tray for kittens (as they grow quickly), some kittens may just find these trays too big and put them off the idea of the tray.

As basic and small cat litter trays can be quite cheap, then a good way to introduce her to using the litter tray is by using a smaller tray for the first few weeks. This will get your kitten used to using the tray before upgrading to a larger tray.

Travelling

Although cats don’t always make the best travellers, if you are planning to be away from home for a night or two then this would be another good reason to use a small cat litter tray. A small tray will fit into your luggage and will also be suitable for overnight visits to hotels, friends and family.

Other reasons people may prefer small cat litter trays may be if their cat is convalescing after an operation or if their cat just prefers it!

Recommended small cat litter trays

World’s Best Cat Litter

World’s Best Cat Litter

 

The World's Best Cat Litter Clumping FormulaBuy now  £14.99 (6.35kg)

 

There are many brands of cat litter available in the market, but one of the most consistently popular is World’s Best Cat Litter.

This cat litter gets fantastic reviews and it is named as if it does the business – so does the reality of The World’s Best Cat Litter live up to the hype?

 

Advantages of World’s Best Cat Litter

The litter is made from organic, whole kernel corn and this has several advantages over other types of litter.

Ease of use – The litter is easy to use as it is a clumping litter, so this means that the corn kernels clump together when they come into contact with moisture.

The litter forms strong and easy to scoop clumps which can then be disposed of, which is an advantage as some cheaper scooping litters will disintegrate more easily.

Organic material – As it is made from natural materials, the World’s Best Cat Litter is good for your cat and doesn’t pose any sort of danger to their health or to your well being.

Although no cat litter is completely dust free, this is as close as you will get and there are no harmful clays or dust reducing agents for your cat to ingest.

This litter would also be suitable for kittens who may be liable to ingest litter when they are in the tray. Read more about litter training for kittens.

Odour control – The large surface area of the corn means that it can effectively trap odours and limit the amount of smell produced by the litter tray. Again, it is impossible to completely remove odours from cat litter – but the World’s Best Cat Litter does a very good job!

Tracking – this is an important factor as it can be very unhygienic for litter to stick to the cat’s paws while it is in the tray.

Flushable – We have covered flushable cat litter in another post, and this litter is one of the leading brands of flushable cat litter.

The clumps from the litter tray will disintegrate again when they come into contact with the water in the toilet, so they can be safely flushed away.

Disadvantages of World’s Best Cat Litter

Cost – It is difficult to find a problem with the performance and safety of World’s Best Cat Litter, but one disadvantage is the cost.

This is not the cheapest cat litter on the market, but as with anything in life you will get what you pay for so even if it is more expensive than some other brands or cheaper, value options the benefits of performance should outweigh the extra price.

It has also been found that the litter at the bottom the litter tray can turn dusty after several scoopings. However, as with any cat litter, it is recommend to completely change the litter tray on a regular basis so if this does happen it is probably time to reload with some fresh kernels.

Varieties

The World’s Best Cat Litter is available in just two different varieties which are Original formula and Extra Strength.

The Original Formula offers all of the features mentioned above, while Extra Strength offers a harder clumping, natural litter that is particularly suitable for households with multiple cats as it offers stronger odour control. As the Extra Strength litter forms larger clumps, then it cannot be flushed like Original Formula.

The World’s Best Cat Litter is available in several different sizes, but the best value available is currently a 6.35kg bag for £14.99. This should last 2-3 months for a single cat, providing fantastic value for one of the consistently best performing litters in the market!
