Paws & Claws carries litters that are clay-free, chemical-free, fragrance-free and biodegradable. They’re good for your cat, you and the environment. Other litters that contain chemicals, such as silica dust, are released into the air every time your cat scratches in his litter box. Cats breathe the dust. The particles lodge in your cat’s lungs jeopardizing the animal’s immune system. Some of the clumping clay litters, containing sodium bentonite, even state on the bag, “Do not let cat ingest litter.” Cats are natural groomers inadvertently swallowing these litter granules periodically. Sodium bentonite clumps by expanding and forming a hard mass. Imagine the havoc these types of litters wreak inside your cat’s digestive system. For these reasons, we strongly recommend our litters, free of toxins that could endanger the health and life of your cat.
We sell four safe, eco-friendly litters at Paws & Claws. Cat Country Organic Wheatgrass Litter and Feline Pine Litter come in a pellet form which absorbs urine and odor. The wheat grass and pine naturally bond ammonia. If you like clumping scoopable litters, we suggest you try World’s Best Cat Litter, made from whole kernel corn or Swheat Scoop Natural Wheat Litter, made from naturally processed wheat.
Please Note: Even though some cat litters state they are flushable, research shows that cat feces contain a parasite that is a primary killer of sea otters. The state of California encourages the disposal of cat feces in the trash and discourages flushing cat feces in toilets.
