What type of kitty litter will you use?
All these choices may get a little confusing. Sometimes it is important to use a different litter during certain times in your cat's life. I have listed different types available and describe what each is like.
Types of cat litter's available
Clay (non-clump) - Regular clay litter is the cheapest and is still widely used. This is sold at dollar stores, pet stores, and online. Clay can also clump and has a wide variety of brands. Clay litter has to be changed frequently as most litters do.
Paper-based- I find paper-based litters to be pretty yucky because they do not always absorb the urine well. However, they are important if your cat has allergies or if your cat has had their claws removed.
They will not get inside your cat's paws like clay can and they are made from recycled paper. The litter is messy but it may be better if your cat needs a sensitive option.
Crystals are by far the most cost-effective since one bag usually can last for several months with one cat. They also reduce odor and there is minimal clean up until it needs to be completely cleaned.
