how do i introduce my cat to sustainably yours?

i’m currently using a clumping clay litter. how does sustainably yours compare?

There was a time when natural, plant-based litters didn’t deodorize or clump as well as conventional brands. Not any more! Sustainably Yours actually outperforms clay in every way.

why shouldn’t i be using clay?

Conventional litters are made from sodium bentonite or dolomite that’s strip-mined from the earth. The silica powder clouds they create when you change the litter box or your cat scratches around aren’t good for her lungs. In contrast, Sustainably Yours is prepared from corn and cassava, two renewable, biodegradable crops. Plus, it’s naturally low in dust.

Always keep 2-4 inches in the litter box. Always replenish the cat litter as you remove the clumps.

Allow clumps to dissolve in the toilet for at least 15 minutes so they can soften before flushing. Breaking clumps into smaller pieces is also beneficial when dissolving.

should women who are pregnant scoop or change the litter?

No. A parasite found in cat feces can transmit a disease called toxoplasmosis. For this reason, pregnant women and those with suppressed immune systems should avoid any litter box maintenance. Other family members should be sure to thoroughly wash their hands after scooping or litter box cleaning.

why does it matter that sustainably yours litter is whiter than other natural brands?

First, because you can easily see what you’re scooping to keep the litter box clean. Secondly, it helps you spot differences in the color of your cat’s urine right away.
