I cleaned in my cat’s litter box today and saw that the sand dusts a lot.
I’m using Pussi lump-forming cat litter in a litter box with a roof and door.
I thought that it must spread dust just as much when the cat walks on the box and that in that case it breathes in this dust.
Can this be dangerous for the cat?
In that case, is it better to have a box without a roof or should you perhaps not use cat sand at all that dusts, but rather sprinkle with recycled paper or something like that?
I have thought that it has been so good with lump-forming sand because it is easy to clean the box. Any advice would be appreciated!
It usually works well for healthy cats, but feel free to use a box without a lid if you have a sand that dusts a lot.
I myself use Ever Clean lumpy cat litter and do not experience that it dusts a lot so it is probably different for different brands.
For cats with respiratory diseases such as Asthma, dusting cat litter can be a major problem and should then be avoided completely.
