Regularly cleaning your cat litter
When using wood pellet cat litter for the first time, there are some things you need to bear in mind. For example, wood pellets will expand quite considerably in size when absorbing liquid and moisture, so it is important that you do not overfill your cat’s litter tray. An adequate amount of cat litter will simply cover the base of the tray. There is no need to create piles of cat litter, as this will only create a mess.
Cat litter should be changed once a week, while a quick clean daily will help to keep the litter tray fresh and deter your cat from using the floor as their toilet instead!
When cleaning your litter tray it is important to keep this process simple. Do not use an excessive amount of cleaning products and keep these free from harmful chemicals.
If you are switching your cat litter, for the first time, from a sand based litter to a wood based litter, it is important to help your cat adjust to the change. The texture will feel slightly different on their paws, meaning they may be hesitant to accept this at first. By mixing in your new cat litter over the course of a week while slowly removing the old litter, your cat will manage the transition far better.
