Pettex is a British run, family company that has been operating for over 50 years and is one of the leading pet trade companies in the UK.
Pettex produce a number of different products for a variety of animals including bedding for hamsters and mice as well as rocks, gravel and fish food for aquatic creatures.
The company is probably best known for the range of Pettex cat litter, with many different varieties available although the signature litter is the Premium Grey Cat Litter that is one of the leading varieties of cat litter available today.
Pettex Premium Grey Cat Litter
Pettex Premium Grey Cat Litter is a natural clay product, manufactured from pure grey fullers earth which occurs in natural sedimentary deposits. One of the main features of Pettex Premium Grey Cat Litter is the unique sieving system, which enhances the clumping nature of the litter making the clumps very distinctive and easy to remove.
The original formula of this Pettex cat litter also helps to create a more economical dust free litter, and the natural minerals contained in the product help to minimise the unpleasant odours associated with cat litter.
If you are considering using this type of litter, then it may be worth investing and using a deeper litter tray. Some cats prefer to scratch in a deeper litter tray and if the level of the litter is not deep enough then the waste may sink to the bottom of the tray and not clump together properly as intended.
Pettex Premium Grey Cat Litter is available for around £6.80 for a 10kg bag.
Pettex Pampuss Woodbase Cat Litter
This is manufactured from unique recycled pine fresh wood pellets, which are highly absorbent, light to handle and easy to dispose of. It has a nice, fresh woody smell, it is easy to use as well as being economical and environmentally friendly.
One of the advantages of this type of litter is that the pellets are biodegradable so the used litter can be scooped out of the tray and placed in the food waste bin or the compost heap.
The Pettex Pampuss Woodbase Cat Litter is available in a very large 30kg bag for around £10.99. This is a very large and heavy bag, but it should keep you going for a while!
Other varieties of Pettex Cat Litter include the traditional heavyweight grey clumping litter, silica cat litter and the ultra-light paper cat litter. The heavyweight grey clumping litter is ideal for high volume users, and the silica cat litter is a revolutionary product that is highly absorbent.
As with any cat litter, the type of litter and variety that you choose will also depend upon what your cat prefers. However, you can be sure of quality produce from Pettex which is one of the leading brands available today.
