7 Reasons You Should
Make the Switch to
a Crystal Cat Litter
You're curious about crystal cat litter but aren't sure if you're ready to make the switch. Allow us to walk you through the facts and features of silica gel crystal litter so you can make a decision that's right for your home and cat.
It’s Great for Odor Control
Crystal litters like PrettyLitter are odorless and scentless. When the litter comes into contact with urine, it first traps and then eliminates moisture and odor, so the tray doesn’t need to be emptied as often.
It’s Extremely Absorbent
Need an easier way to clean your litter box? PrettyLitter’s highly absorbent crystals have microscopic pores that soak in moisture and trap all — meaning one bag can last all month.
It’s Better for the Environment
It Won’t Require Heavy Lifting
A 30-day supply of clay cat litter can weigh more than twice as much as a 30-day supply of crystal cat litter. If you don’t want to carry heavy objects (or simply aren’t able to) it makes sense to choose a lighter-weight option.
It Doesn’t Contain Harmful Sealants
Traditional litter often contains sodium bentonite, a sealant that expands when it comes into contact with moisture. It’s easy to get onto your cat’s paws, and once she steps out of the litter box to lick them, that clay can expand within her digestive tract.
It Won’t Cause Breathing Problems
PrettyLitter uses naturally occurring ingredients that are safe for cats, even when they breathe or ingest it. What’s more, if you or your cat have asthma or a similar condition, you’ll appreciate the fact that crystal litter produces virtually zero dust.
It’s Formulated for Felines
Despite what you may have heard, the silica gels found in many crystal litters are not poisonous. They’re actually made from sodium silicate, a naturally occurring mineral that soaks up moisture like a sponge.
