There are two main forms of cat litter; clumping and non-clumping. The advantages of clumping cat litter are known to most people-it absorbs unpleasant odors and is super easy to clean. But the advantages of non-clumping cat litter are not so obvious. We’ll look at the benefits of giving the non-clumping kind to your feline friend.
Non-Clumping Cat Litter – The Benefits
1. Price – Having a pet can be costly, so it can be a real factor for customers to weigh the cost of goods. The main advantage of non-clumping litter is that it can be at least 50% cheaper than the clumping kind, so it’s an obvious tick in the box, particularly if your cat is happy and healthy.
2. Low maintenance – You do not have to worry about constantly checking for waste to be discarded because non-clumping litter will remain in the box for up to a week, which means that regular worrying about it is one less thing. You may be thinking – but surely it will smell? Nope, since non-clumping litter absorbs larger amounts of moisture so you don’t have to worry about any unwanted odours.
