Looking Closer at Dusty, Non-Hypoallergenic Cat Litter

November 2, 2020 in Blog

You love your cat. He doesn’t get lonely but loves to cuddle. He’s independent and can entertain himself when you’re not at home. One thing you don’t love about your cat is the daily duty of cleaning out his litter box. It smells bad and when you pour the fresh litter into the litter box, dust flies up and can make you cough and sneeze. Cleaning out your cat’s litter box is a very unpleasant part of your day.

Dusty Cat Litter May Cause Silicosis

Sure, sneezing and coughing from cat litter dust isn’t the worst thing. But did you know the dust from some cat litters can potentially cause a lung disease called silicosis? The disease is caused by microscopic particles called silica dust, according to the American Lung Association. When you pour the litter or your cat steps in and out of the litter box, silica dust is kicked up and you and your cat breathe it in, coating the lungs. Too much exposure to silica dust increases the likelihood of developing silicosis.

Clay Cat Litter May Cause Intestinal Blockage when Digested

We all know cats clean themselves using their tongues, but few of us think about the kitty litter particles cats intake as they lick their fur and paws. One harmful chemical in cat litter that ends up in cats’ stomach is sodium bentonite. Sodium bentonite is used in clay litter. It causes the litter to clump, according to tofukittyclub.com, which is supposed to make it easier to remove pee and prevent smell. When clay litter is ingested, it causes intestinal blockage and dehydration, according to an article on cltampa.com. Because the intestinal blockage can cause major health problems, clay litter should especially not be used for kittens.
