CARING FOR YOUR CAT - KITTY LITTER TIPS
Transitioning your cat
While some cats can switch from one litter type to another quite easily,
your cat may require a gradual transition. If so, please follow this transition guide:
Week 1 – Mix 1/3 of new Recycled Paper Cat Litter with 2/3 your current litter
Week 2 – Mix 1/2 of new Recycled Paper Cat Litter with 1/2 your current litter
Week 3 – 100% Recycled Paper Cat Litter
Cats are fastidious and are very clean. Remove waste daily and replace with fresh litter weekly. Use warm water and mild pet-friendly detergent to clean the kitty litter tray. Avoid using harsh chemicals such as chlorine or bleach.
Location for litter tray
Avoid placing the kitty litter tray in a high-traffic area. Most cats, like humans, prefer some privacy.
One of the most common symptoms of Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) is reluctance to use the kitty litter tray. FLUTD is a serious condition. A change in litter habits can indicate an underlying health problem, so try to be aware of your cat's habits. If you notice a change or suspect a problem, have your cat examined by a veterinarian.
Caution: A parasite sometimes found in cat excreta can cause toxoplasmosis. Gloves should be worn when handling soiled cat litter, particularly people with suppressed immune systems and pregnant women. Always wash hands thoroughly after handling cat litter.
