Most cat lovers agree that one drawback of having cats is dealing with their litter boxes. Scooping the cat box is often a dreaded task, especially in homes with multiple cats. Some of the biggest problems with most clumping cat litter include:
- Clumps that are too wet and fall apart when scooped
- Clumps that stick to the sides and bottom of the box
Sound familiar? These are common problems that cat owners experience. You may find yourself avoiding the litter box and letting it go too long between scooping. Odors build up and clumps stick to one another. Soon, you and your cats become fed up. We all know that cats can be very particular, especially when it comes to their litter boxes. An undesirable litter box can drive your cat to look for alternatives. This can lead to smelly accidents around the house. Some cats will develop bad habits and even behavioral problems. Fortunately, there’s a new litter in town and it will change the way you feel about litter box maintenance. Arm & Hammer™ Clump & Seal™ AbsorbX™ is unique because it is made with desert dry minerals that absorb wetness in seconds, forming fast rock hard clumps to trap & seal odors.
Why Desert Dry Minerals?
Diatomaceous earth comes from soft sedimentary rock that occurs naturally in desert environments. It is known for its highly absorptive properties and is naturally lightweight, making it an ideal cat litter ingredient.
The desert dry minerals in AbsorbX™ rapidly absorb urine and cling to feces, sealing in odors. This means you won’t be constantly smelling your cat’s litter, even if you have to keep the litter box in a small space. Cats will appreciate the odor reduction too, especially those in multi-cat households.
Some cat litters will not clump hard enough, allowing clumps to fall apart and become too small to scoop. The remaining urine-soaked particles can make the remaining clean litter get dirty faster, so you end up changing out the litter more frequently. With AbsorbX™ cat litter, urine is absorbed in seconds, forming rock-hard clumps. This makes scooping clean and simple--no more crumbly, messy clumps. This is a major benefit in multi-cat households, where one cat might enter the box right after another cat and break up wet spots before they can harden. Plus, the fast liquid absorption makes clumps less likely to stick to the sides and corners of the litter box, so they won’t need to be scraped off when scooping.
Many cat owners dread hauling heavy containers of litter through the house. AbsorbX™ lightweight litter is about 50% lighter than regular Arm & Hammer™ litter. This makes it easy to handle, so there’s less strain when it’s time to change out the litter. You’ll be less likely to put off litter box cleaning and your cats will thank you for it.
The dust-free formula means less residue on your cat and in the area where you keep the litter boxes.
How to Use Arm & Hammer™ Clump & Seal™ AbsorbX™
Pour about three to four inches of AbsorbX™ into a clean, dry litter box. For best results, use a basic litter scooper to remove clumps and solids daily. The litter should be completely changed out for fresh litter as often as necessary. Litter will need to be changed more frequently in multi-cat households.
Cats like options, so providing more than one litter box tends to make cats happier. Experts recommend having at least one litter box per cat, plus one additional box. This way, cats won’t have to wait in line to use the restroom and are less likely to develop behavioral issues.
Location is an important factor in litter box placement. Be sure litter boxes are easily accessible to cats but not in a loud or extremely high-traffic area. Cats like privacy, but they also don’t enjoy traveling very far to do their business.
Some cats dislike covered litter boxes, especially in multi-cat homes where another cat might “sneak up” on them while they’re in the box. Covered boxes can also feel too small and stuffy to cats. If you need to camouflage the litter box, consider modifying a piece of furniture. An old storage bench or floor cabinet can become a litter box hideaway with some modifications, like cutting cat-sized holes in the sides. This will contain the litter box and allow extra space around the box for kitty comfort.
