The Humble Beginning of Litter


Clay cat litter became quite popular when it was first marketed in the 1840's by Edward Lowe. He gave an absorbent that was called Fuller's Earth to a neighbor to replace what she had been using previously which reportedly was either sand or ashes.

Neither of those was very clean (especially ashes - yikes!) or helped to control odors as well either. After his neighbor's thrilled response to this new product, he decided to market it to cat lovers everywhere as a great solution to all the messiness. He named the new product "kitty litter and it eventually took off to the multi-million dollar industry that it is today!

So what is in clay cat litter?


Most of the scoopable litters nowadays are made with a clay based ingredient called sodium bentonite. It has the fascinating ability to absorb several times its weight in moisture and while doing so, forms that trademark clumping cat litter action that makes it easy for you to scoop up any odor causing excrements. Luckily enough, you don't have to throw out the whole box of litter because of the isolating, clumping action. However, it is best to change the whole litter out monthly for a fresher, cleaner bathroom environment for your kitty cat. This means a cleaner and fresher smelling home for you as well!

The results? Compared to non clumping litters, those that do clump can result in significant savings for you, since that big pail of litter will last a lot longer.
