Choosing A Cat Litter

Litter boxes do make caring for cats quite easy. You don't have to walk your pet, or rush home to let her out. However, while setting up a litter box isn't exactly rocket science, there are some things for you to be aware of.

If you have a kitten, you'll need to avoid clay and clumping litters, at least for now. Baby cats are very clumsy, and sometimes accidentally ingest litter. These types of litters can cause painful and dangerous intestinal blockages if swallowed.

Your cat may also have specific preferences for the texture or scent of her litter. If you change brands, and your pet starts avoiding her litterbox, your best bet is to change back. Keep in mind that kitties all have their own preferences when it comes to litter. If you have more than one cat, they should both have their own litter boxes.
