It is pleasantly inexpensive for a litter that lasts up to a month. If you want the convenience of monthly deliveries, lightweight and absorbent crystals, and infrequent litter changes, then you should give Pretty Litter a chance.
How Does It Work?
PrettyLitter is a clump-free litter, made of super absorbent, lightweight silica gel. Silica gel crystals are extremely absorbent, more so than other litter substrates, so you need less of it to do the same job. Traditional clumping litters turn urine into large (heavy) clumps that need to be scooped out. The litter that is clumped, scooped, and disposed needs to be replaced throughout the month. This means more litter, heavier bags, and more trips to the store. PrettyLitter is a non-clumping formula, so you only need to scoop and dispose of the feces. This allows one bag to last an entire month under normal use by an average sized healthy cat! No replenishment throughout the month needed.
How to Use Pretty Litter
Pour the entire contents of the PrettyLitter bag into a clean litter box. Make sure you are getting the proper 2″ of depth. Remove your cat’s feces every day. When you scoop the feces, make sure to shake off the extra litter granules. Thoroughly mix the litter every day to avoid saturating the same spots in the litter box that cats prefer to urinate in. After a month’s use, empty the entire litter box’s contents in to a trash bag. If there is any residue on the bottom of the litter box, clean the litter surface before pouring in your new supply of PrettyLitter. Regularly check the color of the litter. Shades of yellow to olive green are an indication of normal health. If you notice any other colors, thoroughly mix the litter and monitor your cat’s PrettyLitter closely over the next 24 to 48 hours. If color change persists, you should consider consulting your Veterinarian.
Color Change Meanings
We always want to emphasize that PrettyLitter is a tool that provides insights into your cat’s health, and not a medical diagnostic product. That being said, PrettyLitter can alert you to the potential presence of several common feline illnesses. A dark yellow/ olive green coloring indicates urine within a typical range. The color changes below can be signs of the following potential health issues.
Red: Detection of blood, which may indicate Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disorder (FLUTD), bladder stones/crystals, kidney stones, bladder inflammation, certain types of kidney disease and clotting disorders. In rarer cases it can also mean bladder cancer, or an internal injury.
Blue or Dark Green: Alkalinity outside of the average range may be present if your cat has certain types of urinary tract infections. Highly alkaline urine can increase the risk of crystal/stone formation.
Orange: Acidity outside the average range,which may be a sign of metabolic acidosis or kidney tubular acidosis. Calcium oxalate crystals can be more likely to form in acidic urine. Acidic urine does not necessarily mean these crystals/stones are present, but it is the ideal environment for them to form.
Sometimes temporary color changes in Pretty Litter can occur as a result of a new diet, changes in environment or temporary stresses that can make their way into a cat’s urine, causing it to signal colors outside the normal range. Acidity and alkalinity levels can vary by cat. If you see a color change, observe the litter over the next 24 to 48 hours. If the color change persists, consider taking your cat to their Veterinarian for a wellness visit. Let your Vet know about the change in health indicator color. Only a licensed Veterinarian can diagnose any specific issue.
Cats are well known for hiding illnesses, which makes it hard to tell if your cat is sick or in pain. So if you want your cat to live a long healthy life is an excellent place to start would be with a healthy diet. If your cat were to get sick, you probably wouldn’t know until your cat can’t hide it anymore. And sometimes that can be a little late or a costly bill that could’ve been prevented or treated earlier. At least 10% of cats develop elimination problems. Most cats just stop using their litter box altogether, keeping you guessing where in the house they are urinating. Typically this happens because there are too many cats in the home or because the litter box simply isn’t clean or in the right spot.
