Is your cat a Digger, Sitter or Pusher?

Just like us cats have habits, especially when it comes to their toilet routine.  No matter which litter you prefer, we all know it’s your cat that gets the final say, so here are some handy hints and tips to help you get the most out of their favourite litter and keep your cat purring!

Sitter – Does your cat just sits on the litter with minimal fuss? Then they may be a Sitter. Both clumping and non clumping litters are fine for a Sitter, however you may consider using a litter mat around the tray to ensure they don’t leave a trail if the litter is a little dusty.

Pusher  – If your cat tends to make quite a mess, often ending up outside of the tray, you may have a Pusher! A clumping litter may suit Pushers better as you can maintain the tray on a daily basis. It also might be worth considering a tray liner just in case the depth of the litter runs too low. This will stop the bottom of the tray from getting wet and prevent the litter from sticking.

Digger – Does your cat dig and dig to the bottom of the tray? You have a Digger! As your cat is digging you may need to fill the tray with more litter. Either clumping or non-clumping is fine to use for a Digger, and a litter liner is definitely recommended just in case they dig too far.

How to use different types of litter

Cat Litter

Clumping cat litter

Clumping cat litter usually requires a deeper fill to allow the clumps to form and be removed easily. To find out the correct amount of litter to use always read the label. However for optimum use it is recommended the litter tray is filled to a depth of 5-7cm and topped up with litter after clumps have been removed. It is also advisable that you replace the litter intermittently.  We recommend that you follow a hygiene routine to keep your family safe and ensure that your cat will continue to use the litter.

Non clumping cat litter

You know your cat better than anyone else, however to get the optimum use from the litter we recommend that you follow the fill requirements stated on pack.  As the litter becomes used over time we recommend replacing the litter and following a hygiene routine to ensure your family are safe and that your cat will continue to use the litter.
