The first thing this author noticed about Pretty Litter was its extremely light weight. Even if the only thing that Pretty Litter did was to absorb urine, not having to lug around heavy containers of kitty litter would be a huge selling point. Pretty Litter, however, does so much more:
Pretty Litter changes color to detect common feline health issues. Think of it as a urine dipstick (what they use to check human urine at a doctor’s office) for cats. Pretty Litter allows cat owners to detect health problems early so that they can save on vet bills and – more importantly – potentially save their cat’s life.
For example: kidney disease is a leading cause of death in cats; cats are very good at hiding their discomfort and by the time the cat is showing symptoms, the majority of their kidney function may already be gone. With proper veterinary care, cats can live long, high-quality lives on low levels of kidney function, but the earlier the problem is detected, the better the odds.
Pretty Litter can potentially detect problems with the liver, kidneys, urinary tract and bladder, certain infections and inflammations, gall stones and biliary obstructions. Pretty Litter changes color depending on the pH of the cat’s urine or if blood or bilirubin are present:
- Red = Blood
- Orange = Bilirubin present
- Yellow = Normal, no pH abnormality
- Green = Abnormal acidity
- Blue = Abnormal alkalinity
While Pretty Litter does not replace the need to take your cat for regular veterinary exams and does not pretend to diagnose illnesses. Pretty Litter does provide possible early detection for certain ailments.
Pretty Litter is also scoopable, flushable, dust-free, eco-friendly and poses no health issues if ingested by a cat. Pretty Litter’s silica crystals absorb urine in a fraction of a second, and then the water evaporates, leaving behind dry, odorless litter that can be re-used for one month – all the owner needs to do is remove any solid wastes.
The independent kitty test panel which reviewed Pretty Litter for the purposes of this article was delighted with the product; the only negative reaction was from one particular kitty who enjoys digging in kitty litter. This fastidious kitty always covers the ‘evidence’ by digging and digging and digging litter, then exiting the litter pan and digging at the floor and even the walls, in order to ensure a suitable challenge for any forensics teams that may come along later. This kitty seemed dismayed at not having the usual depth of litter in the pan to suit his digging needs (due to Pretty Litter’s highly absorbent nature, only a small amount of product is needed, compared to old-school clay litters).. This is a problem easily remedied by adding more Pretty Litter. The product lived up to its claims of being scoopable, dust free, flushable and highly absorbent. Luckily no kitties in the test panel triggered any abnormal color changes in the litter.
