When it comes to cat litter, you’ll want to look for the one that keeps your kitty happy and comfortable. From natural tofu / green pea cat litter to sand and biodegradable paper /pinewood formulas, cat owners are simply spoiled for choice when it comes to cat litter. Not sure what to look for? Conventional clumping cat litters are designed for easy clean-ups, with dust-free and unscented options for sensitive felines.

1. Choosing the right cat litter for your cats

2. How often should I change my cat's litter?
Ideally, clean your litter tray or box every day and replace the litter at least once a week.
3. How much cat litter is needed?
It is usually recommended to use a 3 or 4-inch litter cover in the box. You need enough litter for your cat to cover its waste, but it's easy to go overboard.
4. Which cat litter is more environmentally friendly?
One of the best choices you can make for your cat and its environment is to choose a biodegradable cat litter. Those that do not contain clay or silica dust are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly.
5. When to start litter box training kittens?
You can start litter training kittens when they are 3 weeks old. Make sure the litter box is suitable for kittens so they can go in and out easily.
6. Where should I put the cat litter box?
A perfect spot to locate the litter box is your own bathroom and keep the door open when it is not in use. We recommend that you place the litter box in a private and quiet place. Try to prevent the cat from having to go up and downstairs to use the litter box.
