I love cats. Do you? I know you do, and we all adore them. Why do we find it so hard to resist these feline creatures? Is it because of their velvety fur only? There must be a better reason.
I guess it’s because they are so open, so genuine, and they know how to love back. How do you feel when you stroke that affectionate pet as she rubs against your legs in circles? Or that time when he jumps onto your lap and gently closes his eyes as his fur rises at your every stroke? You feel being let in. You feel loved and trusted in return.
Cats know how to create a love bond fast. And we just can’t resist their affection. That’s why we’ll spend thousands trying to get medication for them rather than just euthanizing them and getting ourselves another bundle of love.
But there’s another side of these lovely creatures. About their number one and two. You know what I mean. Their poop and pee. Has your cat ever lost track of the litter box and had to do it on your bed sheets, wooden floor or wool carpet? It’s damn unromantic. The stench that comes with a cat’s poop and pee is just unbearable. Even after they make proper use of the litter box, some of these ‘potties’ will still let out the unwelcome smell.
In case your pet’s litter box is one of them, or you want to buy one, we did prepare you a list of the best cat litters we have on the market today.They are comfortable. They also neutralize odor well and made of quality, non-irritant ingredients.

Transitioning your cat from one litter to the other
It’s obvious that you may have to change your cat litter before you land on the most appropriate for your cat. To do this, you may require changing it gradually. For instance, if you want to change from litter A to litter B. During the first week, mix a third of B with two-thirds of A. Week two, mix two-thirds of B with a third of A. Finally during the third week, use litter B alone.
