Tips & tricks

In collaboration with Cat Educator, Intersand®’s cat experts would like to offer a few tips and tricks for new “parents” of cats, cat lovers and anyone who’s considering a feline addition to the family.

Why choose a clumping litter over a traditional one?

First, it is a more economical product than a traditional litter (or non clumping litter); it will last longer (several weeks rather than just one) and you only have to add small quantities when needed. Second, a premium quality clumping litter (such as City or Extreme Classic) is less dusty; it is then ideal if you or/and your cat are dust-sensitive.

Traditional litters are usually more commodities than luxury. They are often inexpensive when purchasing but you have to change it completely every week, clean the box and fill with new litter. And they are also usually more dusty.

The only exception to that is the hygienic “Kittens and long-haired cats” formula (City or Extreme Classic) that will be good for 2 weeks and is dust-free. You only have to remove faeces on a daily basis, since urine is being absorbed by the clay grains. It is an excellent choice if you have to leave your cat alone for several days or have very little time to clean the litter box.
