Types of cat litter according to their needs

Cats are the cleanest pets you can find and they also have the advantage of not needing to leave the house to take care of their daily business. However, this is precisely why they always need access to a litter box that suits their needs, with clean, top-quality litter so they can feel at ease each time they go to the bathroom.

Cat hygiene is one of the aspects that we need to care for the most so our pets enjoy the best physical and mental health possible. To that end, Sepicat has a wide range of cat litters that perfectly meet the needs and preferences of each feline when it comes to doing their business.

Do you want to learn more about each type of cat litter and see which suit your cat the best?

Clumping cat litter

Clumping cat litter is a type of litter whose composition helps retain moisture to form small clumps. These clumps can easily be removed with a scoop to keep the litter box cleaner, longer.

This type of litter allows us to keep our cat’s litter box clean on a daily basis. It is perfect for people who want utmost cleanliness and are able to remove their pet’s waste every day to prevent bad odours from spreading everywhere.

Sepicat offers various types of clumping litters. You can choose the one that best meets the needs of your pet and your home: from conventional litters with good clumping power, to white bentonite litters that clump excellently, to the new range of lightweight clumping litters, composed of 100% natural clays. These litters also retain moisture to make it easier to remove the clumps that form after your cat’s visit to the litter box and are distinct in that they are a low-consumption product.

Non-clumping cat litter

These litters, as their name indicates, absorb urine and retain it in clay, without forming clumps like clumping litters do. They are very easy to use and do not need daily maintenance, which is perfect for homes with little time for household chores.

Whether you prefer to use lightly-scented or odourless litters, Sepicat has a wide range of products so you can choose the one that is best for you, keeping odours at bay. There are even litters that prevent the spread of bacteria, thanks to the new bactericidal agents that are included in some of their products, which do not affect cat or human health.

Silica cat litter

Silica cat litter has the most interesting appearance. It is normally composed of small white or transparent crystals that can retain moisture internally, thus controlling odours. These litters do not always clump as such.

This type of litter, like Sepicat’s other products, does not produce dust. This prevents waste from spreading each time your cat visits the litter box. Our Sepicat silica cat litters also contain a bactericidal agent that prevents odours, so odours are retained inside the crystals. Because this type of litter is less messy and prevents odours, it is very useful in high-traffic areas, such as the kitchen, bathroom or living room, if we do not have another, more isolated part of the home to place our cat’s litter box.

Biodegradable cat litter

For those who care about the environment, who prefer to reduce the amount of waste their pets produce, or who simply need a litter that is easier to throw out, biodegradable cat litters are the best option.

They are composed of highly absorbent plant material, some of which clump and some of which do not. These litters are very easy to use, as some of them are composed of biodegradable products that require very little maintenance. These Sepicat cat litters are also very useful for composting at home because they are 100% wood.

If you are looking for a more ecological option, this is your best choice.

  1. It really stood out to me when you explained that cat hygiene will help our pet have better levels of physical and mental health. After we move into our new home, I really want to get a cat to keep my husband and me company. Because we’ll be first time cat owners, your advice will be especially helpful as we try to choose the best litter to control the odor.
