There are many advantages to using a biodegradable cat litter, not least that it is much kinder on the environment than using a standard litter. It absorbs liquids fast and is generally made from environmentally friendly, plant based materials such as barley, wood shavings or straw. Biodegradable cat litter is available in both clumping and non-clumping varieties, depending on your and your cat’s own personal preferences.
What other benefits does biodegradable cat litter offer?
There are also many disposal benefits to buying a biodegradable cat litter. It is generally flushable cat litter, or can simply be placed in your compost heap. Using a flushable litter is not only better for the environment than sending to landfill but also means that cleaning up is much less of a hassle!

• Clumping: A flushable cat litter that is also clumping? That really is the trouble-free way to care for your cat’s hygiene! These flushable cat litters are available from a range of well-known reputable brands and are made from natural materials that are easy to dispose of without harming the environment. For example, manure made from whole kernel corn or pine wood, making them dust-free, eco-friendly and compostable. A clumping biodegradable litter will provide a delightful scent to ensure neutralisation of any of the unpleasant odours usually associated with a cat litter box, so you can keep your home smelling fresh. It captures fluids rapidly and forms them into compact clumps that you can easily remove without hassle.
• Non-Clumping Litter: These non-clumping biodegradable cat litters are generally in pellet form and have high moisture absorbency levels.
