"What can I do to extend the life of my Timber Kitty?"
You can sun-dry your litter box by a window or outdoors every now and then for air circulation, this dries out the moisture absorbed by the pellets (Don't leave it out for too long as well due to humidity!) Once you're ready, you can buy a sifter-type of litter box, which makes it easier to keep the fresh pellets up top separated from the used ones which will fall to the bottom. This means less changing, while maximizing the life of each pellet!
"How do I transition from my old litter to Timber?"
Much like us, our feline friends are creatures of habit too! While there’s no magic formula for making the switch, a good rule of thumb is to add some of their old litter into your Timber Kitty, decreasing the portions of the old litter as time goes on. Some cats do best also with just a cold turkey full switch, which makes them go to the closest available potty. Don't forget to reward after a job well done!
"When should I empty out my litter box?"
If the odor is no longer fresh, or if there is an abundance of wood shavings, you can scoop them out and add fresh Timber Kitty to replenish what was lost. We suggest a deep clean (washing out your litter box with soap and warm water) every 1-2 weeks for hygiene purposes.
"Approximately how long does a 4L and 14L last for?"
A 4L box is more of a sample size and should last for about 1-1.5 weeks, while a 14L should last for around 1-2 months, some owners are able to extend for much longer reaching 3-4 months. Please do note though, that this will depend on each cat household and litter box size, as each have different habits and requirements.
"What advantages does Timber Kitty have vs. other types of litter?"
Firstly, this is a safer choice compared to silica-based or sand litter. Secondly, it helps keep your home clean because it’s non-tracking and the pellets aren't dusty. Third, it’s much more absorbent (and environmentally friendly!) Fourth, wood & rice hull are naturally odor neutralizing! Lastly, it breaks down when it comes into contact with liquids, while #2’s can be easily scooped out without hassle, making it an economical choice.
"How well does Timber Kitty clump?"
Timber Kitty does not use any chemicals, preservatives, or any gluing agents. For non-digging cats, it doesn't clump and will sit atop of Timber Kitty, making it easy to spot and scoop out. For digging cats, the timber pellets will lightly coat solid waste. Simply scoop out solid waste along with pellets it touches to minimize wastage.
For liquid waste, Timber Kitty breaks down into grain sized bits, which falls to the bottom of the litter box, making it easier to segregate fresh pellets from the used.
"Can we use Timber Kitty for plants?"
Definitely! It could even be good for them. The wood and rice hull is completely natural, biodegradable and compostable. However, please only use on non-edible plants. This has less to do with Timber Kitty, and more to do with our feline pal's wastes, which is not hygienic to mix with human produce.
"Is Timber Kitty this flushable?"
Yes! Although with one caveat - we recommend users to flush only in small amounts (i.e. only what is needed). This is because while our Timber pellets do break down, they may take time to do so.
