Dusty Cat Litter can cause Respiratory Disease Flare-Ups
Premium Quality Clumping Litter is Safest
I recently switched from using clay litter to clumping litter. I noticed that it’s extremely dusty when pouring it into the litter box. Is this dust harmful to my two kitties when they dig or to me when I stir and scoop?
It can be downright irritating to the lungs of a cat with a history of smoldering upper respiratory disease or asthma. That kind of tissue insult can result in an outbreak of illness. A premium brand (meaning more expensive) should have fewer of those tiny particles and do a better job of clumping around the waste.
