Yesterday’s News Cat Litter is an alternative option for cat owners, as it is a paper cat litter made from recycled materials such as newspapers, corrugated cardboard and reclaimed industrial sawdust.
This means that it is great for the environment, and as the pellets expand to absorb up to three times the amount of moisture compared to a traditional cat litter you will also use less of it. This will save you money as well as helping the planet.
Yesterday’s News Original Formula
Yesterday’s News cat litter is provided in two different products, with the first being the Original Formula. This cat litter is really easy to use, as you can see which pellets need replacing and it also scoops out easily.
Other benefits of this litter are that it is non-toxic, so it is not dangerous if the cat or kitten ingests any of the pellets. Kittens in particular are prone to doing this, so this is a much better option than some litter such as a silica cat litter.
Yesterday’s News Original Formula cat litter is soft on cat’s paws, and although you may get some tracking you should find that most of the litter remains within the box.
Another difference with clay litter is that urine is absorbed from the bottom of the litter tray, so it is advised to keep the amount of pellets fairly shallow so that it is not too difficult to find and remove the soiled litter.
This litter is currently available for around £22 for a 13.6kg bag.
Yesterday’s News Softer Texture
The Softer Texture cat litter from Yesterday’s News has all of the benefits of the Original Formula, but with the main difference being that it is made with softer texture pellets.
This means that it feels more like regular clay, so if you are thinking of making the transition from a traditional clay litter to a paper litter then this would be a very good option as the difference in texture and materials is not as great.
There is also a scented option available for the Softer Texture litter (the Original Formula is unscented), but it is still tough on odours and is designed to be low tracking.
As with all cat litters, you need to make sure that your cat will be comfortable using the litter as well as considering the environmental and other benefits that Yesterday’s News Cat Litter provides.
Although paper cat litters will not be suitable for all cats, Yesterday’s News cat litter is a fantastic option and one of the leading cat litters of this type if you think that your cat would prefer a paper litter, especially with the option of the Softer Texture available.
