Cats Love Unscented Litter
Cats are adorable, a factor that has made them common in many homesteads across the world. Regardless of their popularity, cat owners are often faced with the challenge of choosing the best cat litter for their cats. Primarily, cat litter is grouped into three major classifications, which are; clay based, silica-based and biodegradable. Clay litter is a good liquid absorbent, making it a good option, and if kept clean, it emits no odours. Cats generally love clay-based litter because of the consistency and the fact that it usually does not contain any odour control additives. Silica litter is made from small silica gel beads. Compared to the clay litter, silica is more absorbent, which enables odour control even with minimal cleaning. The other type of cat litter is biodegradable, which is a natural product. It is made from plant sources, such as wheat, corn, pine, walnut shells, grass and recycled paper products. Some cat owners would settle for this type of cat litter due to the fact that it is friendly to the environment. However, it would not be the best for cats, because it can contain perfumes and odour control additives that may upset them. This leaves you with the two options of clay and silica litter. Silica litter is more expensive than clay litter but is usually the best option because it lasts longer, and is preferred by many cats. When choosing cat litter, you should first ensure that you do some research on the best litter and the one that will be comfortable for your cat.
