Silica Cat Litter is a huge growth area in the Pet industry with sales increasing year on year. Traditionally the silica granules are between 2 and 5 mm in diameter making them unsuitable for use with kittens under the age of 8 weeks because of ingestion problems and the fact that they just donÂt support the texture on their small paws.
Vetworld Inc. of Californie through its subsidiary Ultimate Pet Products, has announced the release of their NEW Ultimate Cat and Kitten Litter which is specially designed for use with kittens of all ages. Based on traditional silica, it has the same odor retention properties, but Ultimate is different because of itÂs size, 0.5 Â 1.00 mm in diameter.
CEO of Vetworld, Richard Bultman, said ÂResearch has shown that one of the preferred mediums by cats is sand. Ultimate Cat and Kitten Litter is just that, sand only made with silica. Our tests have shown remarkable results with no odor coming from the litter tray from urine or solids. It doesnÂt clump so thereÂs no waste. The only maintenance is to remove solids and stir the granules regularly. A 4lb bag will last a healthy 8lb cat for 4 weeks so itÂs cost effective. The granules are completely inert and are safe to throw on the garden compost after use where they will decompost back to their original constituents, sand and water.Â
Trials have been carried out and the product carries a ÂVets ChoiceÂ seal of approval. HereÂs what Dr. Tracy McFarland, DVM, CVA, the Cat Doctor, says about Ultimate Cat and Kitten Litter. ÂUltimate Cat & Kitten Litter is a truly revolutionary advance in litter technology. Instead of urine clumps to scoop or smelly wet clay litter, you have dry non-smelly stools to scoop every day or two and a box to empty every month. Because the litter subtly changes color, you know that your cat is urinating in the box. Since this litter immediately absorbs the urineÂs moisture and odor, I canÂt wait to tell my clients about Ultimate Cat & Kitten Litter Â its going to solve litter box problems.Â
The first in the range is the 4lb Cat and Kitten Litter shortly to be followed by a slightly larger granuled Cat Litter and a Pet Litter which can be used by small domestic pets such as rats, hamsters, gerbils etc.
