Do you adore cats or know someone who does? We've all got that person in our life who doesn't just love cats — they love cat stuff, too.

FAQs

How can I make my cat more eco-friendly?

Between cat litter and her carnivorous appetite, it's no surprise that your sweet kitty isn't a poster girl for sustainability. Sure, your cat might not be very environmentally friendly now, but there are a few simple ways you can turn her into an eco-warrior ASAP.

  • Swap out conventional litter for sustainable litter that's made from corn, cassava, recycled wood shavings, or post-consumer paper.
  • Choose cat food that comes in recyclable packages like aluminum cans or cardboard boxes. You can also opt for bulk cat food for a zero-waste option.
  • Gift your kitty with toys made from natural materials like wool.
  • Domestic cats kill up to four billion birds a year. Consider keeping your cat indoors to help out your local bird population.


Is conventional cat litter bad?

Cat litter isn't inherently bad — rather, it's what cat litter is made from that makes it potentially harmful to cats and their owners. Many conventional cat litters are made from bentonite clay, which contains silica dust that can lead to respiratory issues for cats and humans. These clay litters, while popular due to their clumping abilities, could be ingested by cats, which could cause gastrointestinal issues. Conventional cat litter can also contain artificial fragrances that can cause issues for cats.

Instead of picking up clay or fragranced litter, opt for litters made from recycled materials. Newspaper, corn, cassava, sawdust, and wood shavings are all great alternatives to conventional litter. They're low-dust, fragrance-free, and biodegradable — what's not to love?


What materials are best for cat toys?

Cats are kind of like kids — you spend a ton of money on toys for them, and all they want is to play with the box. But if you're on the market for some new toys for Fluffy, you can choose from a variety of safe and eco-friendly materials like wool, cardboard, and recycled plastic, which make for excellent cat toys that won't produce more waste. And if your cat refuses to even look at her new toys, consider donating them to your local animal shelter instead of tossing them in the trash.

An alternative to buying new toys is to find baubles at the thrift store that you think your cat might like. You could also repurpose household items like toilet paper rolls, those aforementioned boxes, or decorative gift bows into fun toys for your kitty to play with.
