When becoming a pet parent to your cat, one of the first things you need to know is that kitty litter is one of your absolute feline essentials at home. It is a crucial part of your cat's daily routine which is why it is important to know how to use it properly.

When buying a litter box you need to keep in mind that the litter box needs to be large enough for your cat; you don’t want its contents flying out. You can find a variety of sizes and colours here.

Filling up your cat’s litter box leaves you with many options. Cat litter comes in a wide variety of materials with bases made from everything from clay to corn to crystals. When looking for kitty litter, look for something that is highly absorbent and neutralizes odour. Good cat litter can be used for upto 7 weeks without being changed. Find it here.

How much litter goes in the litter box?

Cats like to scratch and dig. Make sure you put enough litter in there for that to be possible. Read the packet for specific amounts but approximately 3 inches should do the trick!
