What is crushed cat litter?
Although crushed cat litter is a new product, its essence has not changed, it is still tofu cat litter or bentonite cat litter. There is no chemical difference between crushed cat litter and ordinary cat litter, i.e. there is no change in formulation. Crushed cat litter is just "crushed" from ordinary cat litter, but the physical form has changed. In other words, after the tofu cat litter is crushed, it becomes crushed to tofu cat litter, and after the bentonite cat litter is crushed, it becomes crushed bentonite cat litter. It can be said that any fragrance and color of cat litter can produce corresponding crushed cat litter. In terms of the production process, there is no need to make major adjustments to the production line to produce crushed cat litter, just add a "crushing" process, and other processes do not need to be changed.
Advantages and disadvantages of crushed tofu cat litter
Although crushed tofu cat litter is only different from ordinary tofu cat litter in physical form, there is no change in formula, but it is precisely this change that further improves the performance of crushed tofu cat litter. The improvement in the performance of crushed tofu cat litter is mainly reflected in the wrapping and adsorption of cat litter. The particles of crushed tofu cat litter are much smaller than ordinary, so it can better wrap the cat's waste when it clumps. Due to the large particles, the bar-shaped tofu cat litter inevitably has a few gaps when clumping, and the crushed tofu cat litter wraps the excrement and can be said to be airtight. This can better prevent odors from escaping. After the tofu cat litter is crushed, the surface area of the cat litter is greatly increased, so the adsorption will be faster and better. In addition, the fine particles make the cat feel better when standing on the cat litter, reducing the cat's resistance to the tofu cat litter.
Crushed tofu cat litter is good because the particles are small, but at the same time, it is also bad because the particles are small. First, fine particles are more easily broken during transportation, which will generate dust; Second, the fine particles are more likely to get stuck between the cat's toes and the hair and be carried to all corners of the room; Third, a small amount of cat litter will be lost during the crushing process. That is to say, 1 ton of ordinary tofu cat litter cannot produce 1 ton of crushed tofu cat litter. So the price of crushed tofu cat litter will be a little higher.
When choosing cat litter, we must fully consider the advantages and disadvantages of crushed tofu cat litter, and choose suitable cat litter according to our own needs. When you choose, you can refer to the advantages and disadvantages we have listed to see which characteristics of tofu cat litter are more important to you.
Crushed bentonite cat litter
Cat litter is mainly divided into two categories: tofu cat litter and bentonite cat litter. Similarly, crushed cat litter also includes crushed tofu cat litter and crushed bentonite cat litter. We have highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of crushed tofu cat litter above. What are the advantages and disadvantages of crushed bentonite cat litter? Is crushed bentonite cat litter worth buying?
The advantages and disadvantages of crushed bentonite cat litter are basically the same as those of crushed tofu cat litter, but due to the different raw materials of bentonite cat litter and tofu cat litter, these advantages and disadvantages have very different effects on crushed bentonite cat litter and crushed tofu cat litter. In general, the raw material selection and lower price positioning of bentonite cat litter dilute the advantages of crushed bentonite cat litter but magnify the disadvantages.
The physical appearance of ordinary bentonite cat litter is originally spherical small particles. After crushing, it brings better wrapping and adsorption, and the improvement effect of bentonite cat litter performance is not obvious enough. More importantly, bentonite cat litter itself has the problem of large dust, which is also the most criticized problem by the majority of cat owners. After being crushed, the problem of dust is more obvious and serious, which greatly reduces the user experience of cat owners. Besides, ordinary bentonite cat litter is easily taken out of the cat litter box, and crushed bentonite cat litter is more serious in this regard.
In addition, the biggest selling point of bentonite cat litter is the cheap price. After adding the crushing process, it will inevitably lead to an increase in the production cost, which will lead to an increase in the price. Although the increase in the crushing process will not have a significant impact on the production cost, the price increase may not be large when it is placed on the tofu cat litter. However, the price of bentonite cat litter itself is very low, and the same increase will be more obvious when is placed on bentonite cat litter. This greatly weakens the advantages of bentonite cat litter. Therefore, we do not recommend that you buy crushed bentonite cat litter.
