ökocat Natural Cat Litter
As a multi-cat owner I'm always open to finding ways to help control the sight and smells of dirty litter box. I'm also open to finding ways to have a cleaner litter box area. It seems like the clay litter never stays in the box where it belongs. One or two cat trips in and it's all over the floor. So when I received a box of ökocat Natural Cat Litter I was ready to give it a shot. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I have to say I am very impressed. It did take the cats a few days to completely take to the new litter, but now they are using it like it's the same as before. However it's not the same as before because I no longer have litter scattered all over my floor! It's been quite a blessing with having company over for the holidays I do have to say.
You can find out all the details and comparisons between your standard clay litter and the ökocat Natural Cat Litter below.
Proven Performance as Best in Class!
• 7 Day Odor Control
• Absorbs 500% its weight
• Superior Clumping
• Naturally Lighweight
ökocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter offers the best performance in the natural litter class. Free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics, its soft ground pellets have been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X their weight in liquid and control odor for 7 days. Its superior clumping and absorption power forms firm clumps and controls odors for 7 days. ökocat litter is biodegradable for flushable disposal, and is naturally lightweight. All litters come in a smart, compostable package with an easy-to-carry handle and pour spout.
Better for You, Your Cat and the Environment
ökocat provides a naturally healthier environment for you and your cat, and it’s better for the planet because we use only 100% sustainable and renewable wood fibers as found in nature. It starts with naturally fallen timber or unused lumber materials that would otherwise go to waste. The wood is then chipped and pelleted along with proprietary plant-based binders that improve the finished product.
Our fiber supply is sourced through suppliers that comply with policies set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative or the Forestry Preservation and Forestry Promotion Act, and consists of a variety of softwood trees including but not limited to spruce, pine and fir.
Our sustainable litters come from the earth, and can be returned to the earth and won’t sit in landfills for 100+ years like clay litters do. Plus, the packaging is compostable as well.
Biodegradable and Flushable
ökocat litters are 100% biodegradable. The litter degrades quickly and cleanly unlike clay litters that sit in landfills for years. The litter is also completely compostable, although we do not recommend putting used litter feces clumps in your compost bin.
ökocat litters are flushable in small quantities. We recommend that if you intend to flush your cat's waste, scoop carefully and avoid putting extra, loose litter into your toilet. You should also keep in mind the water or septic system you are on when making the decision to flush or not to flush. California has a referendum in place for protection of the sea lion population, as cat feces can harm sea lions. Please be aware of any local restrictions you may be subject to.
Binds and Traps Odors
ökocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives, scents, dyes or other harmful materials. The capillary system of natural wood fiber uniquely absorbs odors leaving a very subtle natural wood scent.
Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.
