WHAT IS ATTAPULGITE?
Attapulgite Clay (also known as Fullers Earth) is well known for its unique structure that consists of tiny air pockets that absorb and locks in liquid and odour compounds, such as ammonia.
HOW TO PRONOUNCE ATTAPULGITE?
WHY IS ATTAPULGITE CLAY SO SPECIAL AS A CAT LITTER?
Fuller's Earth (also known as Attapulgite) was the original cat litter. It was first commercialized in U.S.A since 1947. Attapulgite Clay is a light-weight, non-clumping cat litter, which naturally absorbs and locks in liquid and odour compounds, like ammonia.
WHY IS NON-CLUMPING CAT LITTER A BETTER CAT LITTER?
Clumping cat litter (sodium bentonite) is known to clump when kittens ingest the clay.
Non-clumping cat litter is longer-lasting and does not stick to the at's paws.
After use, all the cat litter in the tray is disposed of. It is more hygienic for your cat (and yourself!) rather than scooping used clumped cat litter.
Other types of cat litter like tofu, corn, wheat etc. is blended with clumping cat litter (sodium bentonite).
