Finding the right cat litter for kittens can be tricky. You need to choose a litter that’s soft enough for sensitive kitten paws and non-toxic in case of accidental ingestion. Clumping clay litter can swell up to 15 times its size in the stomach, potentially causing a dangerous obstruction.
Fresh News is a non-clumping cat litter made entirely from recycled paper. This all-natural litter is eco-friendly and biodegradable, and the materials are safe in case your kitten accidentally ingests some.
Non-clumping cat litter doesn’t typically contain odors as well as clumping varieties, but Fresh News is infused with baking soda to help neutralize odors. Customers confirm that the litter does have decent odor-blocking properties and it is very low in dust.
One thing to be mindful of with recycled paper litter is that moisture can build up in the bottom of the box. While this litter may be up to 3x more absorbent than clay, large volumes of litter or diarrhea may seep through to the bottom of the pan and make cleaning a little more difficult.
