Angel is an inside cat, so I purchased a litter tray and a bag of litter. The range to choose from is quite extensive and choosing was hard. In the end I chose a bag of clay pellets and decided to try the others and see which performed best.
The clay pellets worked well, absorbing moisture and odour, but like any litter it's messy and I need to get one of those closed in trays to contain it. As soon as the budget allows.
Next I tried a softwood litter, which I gave up on pretty quickly. A clumping type and environmentally friendly, (also claims to be flushable, which I didn't try), but not as absorbent as I would have liked. Angel always came out of the tray with damp paws and I spent a lot of time wiping up paw prints with damp paper towel and disinfectant.
AND, the tiny shreds of softwood stuck to his feet and tail so got tracked all over the flat.
I still have half a bag of it and I'll empty it into the garden as mulch.
My current choice is Catsan crystals, in terms of absorbency and odour control this one is really good. There are several other brands and varieties of cat litter, but I'm not sure I'll try them all like I originally planned. The Catsan is an expensive brand, so I will try a cheaper brand of crystals to see if they are suitable.
Because I'm going to be buying this stuff for a good long while!ygah
"ygah??" That was Angel landing on the keyboard!
