The benefits of wood pellet cat litter
There are a number of benefits of wood pellet cat litter. One big one that is very popular with cat owners is that due to the size of the pellets it is a very low tracking product. This and the fact that it also has a low dust content means it will mostly stay in the litter tray. It is great for odour control and is very eco-friendly. Some cat owners do suggest that it is harder to clean but on the whole the pros of this type of litter far outweigh the cons.

How to compost wood pellet cat litter
When it comes to the disposal of wood pellet cat litter it is a compostable product provided you follow the correct procedures. Because cats are carnivorous animals, you must ensure that solid waste is removed from the litter before it can be composted. For this reason and because the faecal matter of carnivores can contain harmful bacteria when composted, the litter must not be used on any garden beds containing edible plants.

The cleaned litter can be added to your compost in the garden where it should remain for at least six months before you can use it on your flower beds. In order to ensure that it composts properly you must ensure that it is a 100% organic product, if it contains any clay, sand or crystal this may damage the soil it comes into contact with.
