I decided to try with Brucy a new type of cat litter. As you may know already, we are big fans of Catsan. It is a non-clumping litter made from clay minerals. The clay absorbs all odours but you need to change the litter, on average, every 2 weeks.
But nowadays, everybody is using silica gel litter, so we decided to give it a go, too. Silica gel litter is composed of granular crystals that absorb odour for a longer period of time compared to other cat litters. So even though the silica gel littler costs more than non-clumping litter, it is normally meant to last an entire month.
We decided to give silica gel litter a try and I was disappointed. Already after a few days of use, the bottom layer of the litter turned yellow/brown and started smelling. Once I tried to throw out the yellow smelly crystals, there really wasn’t much left in the litter box, as you must use the entire packet of litter every time..So we weren’t too impressed by silica get litter and we decided to stay loyal to Catsan.
What are your litter preferences?
