Cat litter is an object used by the owner to bury feces and urine for the cats raised by the owner. It has good water absorption. It is generally used together with the litter box (or cat toilet). Pour an appropriate amount of cat litter on In the litter box, the trained cat will walk into the litter box and place the cat feces on it when it needs to be excreted.
The most important advancement in cat culture is the use of cat litter. Early cat litter was mainly non-condensing cat litter, and everyone was mainly for storing cat poop. However, with the continuous advancement of cat litter technology, people are not limited to such simple storage, so condensed sand, wood sand, crystal sand, bentonite sand, etc. continue to appear.
Generally, cat litter is made of paper pulp into small particles to simulate sand and provide water absorption. There are also particles that use physical desiccants such as silica gel. Generally, chemical products such as antibacterial agents/deodorants/preservatives are added. Cat litter will condense into lumps when exposed to water. Although it is easy to clean up, it is recommended to use a special drain spatula. Most litter cats will get on their feet and take them to other places after stepping on them, so please pay attention to cleaning them frequently.
