Did You Know?
The inks used to print newspapers and other materials use to contain toxic heavy metals such as lead and cadmium. Today, most publishers print using harmless organic inks and/or soy-based inks. The process used to make Yesterday's News neutralizes these inks so there will be no residue left on your cat's paws or fur.
Transitioning Your Cat
Some cats switch from one litter type to another easily. Others require a transition. When possible, give your cat the opportunity adjust to Yesterday's News® prior to surgery.
How to Use
- Select an appropriate litter box. There should be enough room for your cat to comfortably turn around in.
- Fill the litter box to a depth of 2 to 3 inches, with plenty of pellets for pawing and covering. Remember that Yesterday's News paper cat litter is different than clay cat litter. Having the litter too deep will make it more difficult to find and remove the soiled litter.
- Liquid waste is absorbed from the bottom of the pan. It takes a few minutes for all the liquid to absorb.
- Remove the soiled pellets when they have absorbed the liquid and have fully expanded in size.
- Scoop solid waste from the top of the litter box daily.
- Replace the litter weekly.
Tips & Tricks
How to keep everything inside the box.
If your cat is showering litter outside of the box or eliminating on the edge of the box, you may need a larger litter box. Cats may have individual preferences for certain box depths, hoods or entrances, so you may need to experiment.
How to deal with odd behaviors.
New people in the house, changes in diet or other routines, the presence of other cats, even moved furniture, can trigger odd behaviors. Take time out to comfort and play with your cat so she will feel more secure.
What to do if you suspect something’s wrong.
Have your cat examined by a veterinarian. Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) is a serious condition that can cause pain, burning, and a constant urge to urinate on the spot. Diarrhea may be caused by a number of things, including abrupt diet changes, intestinal parasites or viruses.
What to do if you notice your cat eating litter.
There may be an underlying health problem. Always consult your veterinarian right away when you notice a major change in your cat's litter box behavior.
What to do if your cat tries to mark his territory.
Cats may use urine to mark their territory. Instead of squatting and urinating in a puddle, the cat will raise its tail and squirt the urine backward toward the object it is trying to mark. Both males and females spray, even if they have been neutered or spayed. Use a commercial cleaner to remove the scent as best you can.
What to do if an accident happens.
Be sure to thoroughly clean soiled areas of carpet with a commercial product designed for that purpose. If the scent is not eliminated, the cat may return to the scene of the crime and repeat the offense.
