Is Naturally Fresh in pellets or crushed?
Both! We have a non-clumping pellet product, which controls up to 7x more odor than other leading non-clumping litters (and is great for all small animals!). We also have multiple quick-clumping formulas that are made of fine granules from the fibrous material of the walnut shell, which feels like dirt on cat kids’ paws.
How can I transition my cat kid to Naturally Fresh?
Start by placing one to two inches of Naturally Fresh Litter in a clean litter box. Then, top dress with enough of your current cat litter to cover Naturally Fresh Litter. Each time you change the litter, reduce the amount of your current litter. It typically takes one or two changes for most cats to be comfortable with a new litter.
My cat/dog keeps trying to eat your litter. Will this make him sick?
Naturally Fresh products are non-toxic and made without any harmful ingredients, so it shouldn’t have a negative effect on him. Eating too much litter is similar to having too much fiber consumed in a diet – a loose stool would be the indicator that the cat is eating too much litter. However, ingesting urine or fecal matter may be detrimental to his health, so we wouldn’t want this to become a habit.
Can pet parents with nut allergies use Naturally Fresh?
The most common nut allergies are caused by ingesting the proteins of the nuts, so we would not be concerned if this is the type of nut allergy you have as Naturally Fresh litter is not for human consumption. However, the more uncommon allergy is Anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a serious, life-threatening allergic reaction typically to airborne particulate. Therefore, we would not recommend the use of our cat litter if there is a potential for an anaphylactic reaction.
How can I recycle the packaging?
Naturally Fresh bags are a #7 plastic, which is typically accepted by curbside recycling programs. However, recently we learned that processing #7 is limited in certain areas, and therefore, we are currently in the process of redesigning our bag so that it is much easier to recycle. It’s important to us to have an all-natural, biodegradable, and annually renewable product in a bag that can be easily recycled – we are moving to this soon.
Is Naturally Fresh litter compostable?
Naturally Fresh Cat Litter is both biodegradable and compostable. The amount of time that it takes to decompose will vary depending on the situation. That being said, we do not recommend that you use it in a vegetable garden compost pile, as it is more suited for an ornamental garden compost pile. This is because cat feces may contain a parasite called Toxoplasma-gondii that causes a disease known as toxoplasmosis, which can cause serious illness in those who are pregnant or have suppressed immune systems.
