Timber Kitty (Backorder)
One small step for man, one giant leap for felines.
*Disclaimer: Due to the rise of cases and unpredictable weather, we are experiencing a Timber production squeeze. Please expect deliveries to resume between Sep. 21-25. Confirmed orders will be fulfilled on a first-come-first-serve basis*
When it comes down to it, we simply want our litters to be:
- Odour neutralizing
But in reality, it’s a compromise - and we just couldn’t just accept that. True to our word, we ended up with an all-natural, safe, no-compromise Timber litter for even the most discerning cats and owners.
Unlike pine or clay, Timber Kitty is 100% organic and safe for our felines – as a bonus, it's also biodegradable and can even be used as fertilizer for non-edible plants!
So why make the switch?
- Made of recycled timber, our litter contains no chemicals whatsoever.
- It’s 3x more absorbent and environmental than clay.
- More than just odour free – it leaves a nice woody scent.
- It’s biodegradable
- – easily disposed of by flushing or as fertilizer for non-edibles.
- Solid waste clumps lightly when buried, while liquids simply erode into sawdust for easy cleaning.
- It’s dust free and doesn't track!
Perfect for sensitive noses and thrifty owners, this might just be all you've been looking for!
Made of Mangga, Acacia, Mahogany, Rambutan, and Lansones.
"What can I do to extend the life of my Timber Kitty?"
You can buy a sifter-type of litter box to extend the life of your Timber Kitty, which ultimately makes it much more economical! Because the used pellets break down into wood shavings, with a sifter, it simply falls to the bottom, leaving the untouched ones on top. This means less changing, while maximizing the life of each pellet!
"My cat doesn't want to use my Timber Kitty! How do I convince them to use it?"
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. Don’t worry! They’ll get the hang of it soon!
"When should I empty out my litter box?"
Knowing when to replace your Timber Kitty is simple. If the odour is no longer fresh, or if there is an abundance of wood shavings, you can either scoop them out and add fresh Timber Kitty, or simply replace it all together.
"Approximately how long does a 4L and 14L last for?"
A 4L box should last for about 2-3 weeks, while a 14L should last for around 1.5 months. Please do note though, that this will depend on each cat and litter box, as each have different habits and requirements.
"What advantages does Timber Kitty have vs. other types of litter?"
We’re glad you asked! First and foremost, this is an absolutely safe alternative to other household litters. Second, it helps keep your home clean because it’s non-tracking. Third, it’s much more absorbent (and environmentally friendly!) than clay. Fourth, it doesn’t just mask the odour, it actually smells great! 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. Oh, and did we say it’s safe?
"How well does Timber Kitty clump?"
Because Timber Kitty does not use any chemicals, preservatives, or any gluing agents, the way Timber Kitty clumps is slightly different from other types of litter. 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 wastage, Timber Kitty breaks down into fine wood chips, which falls to the bottom of the litter box, making it easier to segregate fresh pellets from used sawdust.
"Can we use Timber Kitty as fertilizer?"
Definitely! It's the best way to re-use waste products in our opinion! However, please only fertilize non-edible plants. This has less to do with Timber Kitty, and more to do with our feline pal's wastes, which may not be safe for humans. Therefore, the best way to do this is by burying or first composting, before using it as a fertilizer.
"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. Similarly, as with any litter, we recommend owners to dispose of solid wastes by composting and or through other sustainable practices.
