Using Simply Pine
Pine pellets or cracked pine pellets act as sponges that absorbs urine and turns into sawdust. Scoop the solid waste each day and then gently shake the box so the sawdust drops to the bottom and the dry pellets float to the top. The sawdust on the bottom will continue to work to absorb moisture and control odor. When the box is mostly sawdust, dispose of all content and refill with new litter.
Transitioning you cat
1. Fill the empty litter box with 2" of Simply Pine and pour only 1" of your existing litter on top. Let your cat mix the litters as they are used.
2. When it's time to clean the box entirely, continue to fill with more Simply Pine and less of the old litter until your cat has adjusted to the change.
3. When your cat is used to the new litter dispose of your old litter appropriately or donate it to a local shelter.
Is the pine kiln-dried?
Yes, all our wood litters are kiln-dried to remove any volatile oils. They are then tested by a third party to ensure there are no remaining detectable oils.
Can I compost used natural cat litter?
The kitty litter itself is completely biodegradable. However, we do not recommend putting used litter feces clumps in your compost bin. If you choose to compost, do not use in vegetable gardens, or be sure to let it set for six months so as to follow the USDA protocol in order to make the compost safe for use in vegetable gardens. Please check with compositing experts on how to most safely compost pet litters and before using according to these published guidelines.
What scoop is best to use with the larger pellet litters?
There are several scoops with large slots specially designed for use with pellets available at pet retailers.
Are any animals used in the testing of your products?
We do not use animals in the testing of any of our products. All our products do go through rigorous quality assurance procedures and third party laboratory testing and adhere to established safety guidelines mandated by regulatory and animal welfare agencies. Our products are made from substances that have a long history of safety for both the humans and animals, and are found in everyday products from both the food and cosmetics industries.
Are there harmful chemicals used in the processing of your cat litter?
No. Any of the additives in our products are those typically found in the production of common household products such as tissue paper and/or products for human consumption.
Why is there a PROP 65 Warning on the packaging of your cat litters?
We realize the requirement posed (only) by the state of California sounds scary. It needn't be. The warning pertains to "wood dust." Along with beach sand, wood dust was added to a list of more than 900 substances ruled harmful when overexposure occurs in the workplace, or even by a consumer. According to the law, all wood- and silica-based cat litters should state the Prop 65 warning to be compliant, though many do not.
There are several innocuous substances on the California list that with typical use, do not risk human or pet health (e.g. traditional clay cat litters are also required to carry the warning for silica or "sand,"). However, it's our responsibility to label our products as required by law. Being a small company and to keep retail costs down, we chose to print only one packaging version, rather than incurring the cost of a "California only "version.
