How To Make Your Own DIY Kitty Litter
There are hidden and un-listed chemicals in flea collars, food, bedding, and even toys – the most common chemical to show up in toxicology tests is lead. Making your own toys, bedding, treats, and kitty litter eliminates the guessing and also is often much more cheaper than buying from a pet store – save money and try this DIY (do-it-yourself) kitty litter project for your cat!
Shred some collected newspaper in a paper shredder. Soak the paper in warm water mixed with a few squirts of gentle, biodegradable dish soap. The shredded paper takes on a cooked oatmeal consistency. The paper won’t come completely clean, but the water will turn grey.
Drain the water and repeat the soaking process minus the soap. Sprinkle baking soda liberally on the wet paper. Knead it in to the mixture. Squeeze the remaining moisture out until it’s as dry as you can get it. Crumble over a screen and leave to dry (it takes a few days).
Once it’s dry, put about an inch and a half to two inches of the paper crumbles in the litter box, scoop solids daily and change it once a week. It takes about a half an hour to 45 minutes to make a 2-3 week supply of litter, and it’s kind of fun, in an elementary school art project way.
