Types of cat litter that you should know

Hello there, humans! I know that decision-making isn’t always easy, much less so if the decision is all about buying us the best there is on the market. Not to worry, I’m here to help you and show you the differences between clumping and non-clumping cat litters.

That’s right, you can’t put a combination of the two in our litterbox for us. You’ll have to opt for one kind or the other, always bearing in mind your kitties’ preferences and the amount of time you can devote to cleaning our litterbox, being fully aware of the advantages one kind and the other have to offer.

We being territorial animals and most refined when it comes to our toilet area, we show favoritism for one very specific type of cat litters. We don’t care too much for changes, but if they are for the better, it’s your obligation to show them to us.

No matter how many types of bags of cat litter you may find on the market, they basically differ from one another in that they are either clumping or non-clumping cat litters. So then, which one should you choose?




Cat litter 1: Non-clumping


Non-clumping cat litters can be either mineral, organic or synthetic in origin. They are characterized by absorbing urine fast and requiring very little upkeep. When your kitty urinates in its litterbox filled with non-clumping material, the urine is encapsulated in the litter granules.

By using this type of cat litters, you’ll have to remove all solid excrement regularly. Once the cat litter becomes saturated, you throw away all of the litter in the litterbox, clean the litterbox well and then refill it with the same product.

Non-clumping cat litters are especially recommended for homes where not a lot of time can be spent devoted to litterbox upkeep.


Cat litter 2: Clumping


Just as for the non-clumping cat litters, clumping cat litters can be either mineral, organic or synthetic in origin. What really makes these cat litters different is their ability to trap urine and feces, forming small clumps very easy to see and remove from the litterbox. So, it’s very easy to remove the soiled litter from the rest, making it possible for the cat litter to stay completely free of urine and feces for a longer length of time.

In this case, you humans have to watch out for the litter clumps to remove them from the litterbox as soon as possible and fill in the empty space left with clumping litter.

Clumping cat litters are recommended for those homes where special importance is placed on controlling bad odors and where there is a willingness to keep up the litterbox regularly.


So, now you know what the difference is between the types of cat litters. Choosing between one kind and the other will depend exclusively on the amount of time you want to devote to cleaning our litterbox for us. Whatever you decide, you now know already that Sepicat has the best options to offer you for keeping your cat happy. Meow!
