Cat litter is a fact of life for all of us, and while it may not be the most exciting aspect of sharing life with a cat, it’s a necessity. You can make it sound cutesy by calling it “kitty” litter, but that really doesn’t change all the negative associations some people have with it: Heavy. Dusty. Tracked through your house. Why can’t someone invent some a litter that isn’t all those things?
Oh wait! Someone has!
It’s called PrettyLitter, and it brings veterinary science into your home and eliminates some of the negatives associated with traditional cat litter.
When your cat urinates in a litter box filled with PrettyLitter, the litter changes color. Yellow and olive green are good and mean there’s no sign of health problems in your cat’s urine. Other colors like red, blue, and bright green mean your cat may be dealing with a health issue.
PrettyLitter does this by by reacting to the pH of your cat’s urine. Because many feline health problems cause dramatic shifts in urine pH, this is an excellent way to signal pet parents that something may not be quite right.
PrettyLitter also changes color in the presence of blood. Conditions like kidney stones and bladder crystals can cause blood in the urine, so when PrettyLitter turns red, you know it’s time to take your fur baby to the vet.
Works with any litter box
While some litters require a certain type of box (“Must be four inches deep and at least 12 inches wide and come with a lid and a satellite dish!”), this litter works with any litter box. Tall, deep, shallow, wide, self-sifting, mechanical, – any litter box will do. It’s light enough to not jam up self-sifting litter boxes, and it’s tiny silica granules are small enough to fall through even the most serious litter scoops.
Superior odor control
PrettyLitter starts off odorless and stays odorless.
PrettyLitter is made of tiny silica crystals that quickly absorb moisture from urine and feces, trap odor-causing bacteria, and let the moisture go via evaporation. The bacteria remain trapped and odorless in their little silica prisons until it’s time to change out your PrettyLitter. Pretty Litter does not use artificial fragrances or perfumes to mask odors.
With traditional litters and natural-media litters, you may need to change out the litter every few days. With PrettyLitter, you’ll only have to replace your cat litter once per month. PrettyLitter is such a pro at letting go of moisture while holding on to odors and bacteria that it lasts far longer than traditional clumping litters.
In fact, PrettyLitter doesn’t clump at all. Rather, when your cat makes a deposit, the solid bits are easily scooped out with a litter scoop while the liquid evaporates. Simply remove and toss the solid bits, stir the litter around, and you’re done!
One bag of PrettyLitter will last one cat one month.
Better still, PrettyLitter is shipped right to your home so you never have to worry about forgetting your cat’s precious soil at the store or wondering when it’s time to change out the box. Just change your litter whenever your new pack arrives on your doorstep.
Lightweight and dust-free
Lightweight litters are all the rage these days. The idea is great in theory, but some of these cat litters now come with an added problem: more dust. Lightweight clay litters become airborne much more easily, which can cause problems for both you and your cat. Dust clouds can carry harmful bacteria into your respiratory tract, and even new, clean litter can irritate nasal passages and lungs and cause respiratory problems for cats and humans, including asthma.
PrettyLitter gives you all the benefits of lightweight litter without the dust. A one-month supply of PrettyLitter weighs four pounds. And because PrettyLitter is made of silica, it creates zero dust.
There are a lot of hidden costs associated with traditional litters.
First, you’ll go through a lot more of it each month than you will if you use PrettyLitter.
Second, because clay litter sticks to anything moist, it’s easily tracked through your house on your cat’s paws. When that litter makes its way onto your carpet, sofa, or other furniture, it can wear down your fabrics with every step.
Third, Pretty Litter helps you save on veterinary costs. Since PrettyLitter gives cat parents a way to monitor their cats’ health, and detect problems even before symptoms appear, Pretty Litter lets you take care of health issues before they become advanced, and potentially more costly to treat.
