When our vet told us that our newly adopted kitty had asthma, I am sure you can imagine my shock and amazement. I had NO idea that cats even got asthma! I also had to deal with this issue proactively so that he could still have a long and happy life!
So, we spent the next year making sure that our environment was healthy and dust free for him. We also went on a quest to find a litter that would not only work, but actually be dust free. You see, we discovered that most that claim to be, are not. My dark couches can attest to that! He has big webbed feet, and tracks everything and anything that is on the floor!
Then, we discovered Precious Cat Dr. Elsey’s Long Haired Cat Litter. We are still in our first container, however, so far, it seems to be going well. He has tracked NO dust. I assume because the litter is made of an amorphous silica gel infused with hydrolyzed herbs. It is basically little white crystals. I have had no issues with tracking.
The odor is not kept at bay quite as well as the pine litter that we used to use. However, it is far better than the other alternatives we have used! I add baking soda to it, and it helps even more.
Since it is white, it is also very easy to locate the feces, and since the crystals are small, it is easy to get it out and not lose litter in the process.
One thing that freaked us out when we first introduced it to our two cats was that they ate some! Thankfully, after we did some online research we found that as long as they are not consuming large quantities, it is fine. However, just to be safe, I discourage it when they do it. The good news is they only try to when it is fresh with none of their feces or urine in it. And, because we have two cats, it does not stay clean long.
All in all, we are pretty happy, so far, with Precious Cat Dr. Elsey’s Long Haired Cat Litter.
