3 Natural Kitty Litters That Don’t Stink

Kitty litter is usually made with non-biodegradable sodium bentonite clay or silica. Prolonged exposure to these ingredients can cause damage to your mucus membranes, lungs and upper respiratory tract and if ingested by pets can lead to bowel blockages, kidney problems and dehydration.

We know what it takes to keep a house clean and comfortable and what to do to make our pets happy.

There are so many applications for it, in the bath it softens skin, it takes the itch out of bug bites, its soothing for psoriasis and much, much more! To make the most out of your Gritty Kitty litter mask, you may customize it via naturally derived plant extracts instead of plain water.  Here are some of our favorites depending on the skin’s needs: Stop Stressin’ Meow Calming Mist – Mix this with your mask,  and you’ll have a spa-like experience because luscious lavender smells oh-so-good! Lavender likewise reduces stress and the same time, soothes sensitive, and dry skin but it is useful for acne and all skin types to soothe and tone.
