What type of cat litter is best?
For many cats, two trays are best. Some prefer to do no.1 in one tray and no.2 in the other, or just have choices!
There are many different types of litter that are both good at absorbing urine and decreasing smell:
- Clumping cat litter
- Crystal cat litter
- Recycled paper litter
- Gravel based litters
- Scented litter
Some can be scooped regularly (clumping and crystal) and emptied to clean and disinfect the tray weekly or less. Other litters need to be emptied completely and the tray disinfected daily.
Either way, please ensure that your cat has access to a clean litter tray at all times. If in doubt, most cats will like using the finer gravel or clumping types of litter. Just watch that they don’t try to eat it in the beginning, especially a young cat/kitten.
Your cat will prefer a quiet and safe area for its tray, including the laundry, bathroom, spare room or a quiet hallway. Make sure it is an easy area to clean.
