We love animals! Our favorite kind of pet though is dogs. My husband and oldest daughter are allergic to cats so they are not a pet that we would ever get. I like how cats are pretty independent when it comes to bathroom and bathing and stuff. i have met some cats that like to snuggle all the time and i have also met some cats that like to hide all the time!! LOL
So with our world being so crazy with the chemical they put into our every day products and our food, I figured this would be a good life hack to share for you cat people out there! Tired of buying ridiculously expensive cat litter? Well i have a few ways you can make your own without having to buy anything!!
So you can replace your commercial kitty litter by using sand or dirt but that can probably get a bit messier than kitty litter. DIY clumping kitty litter is kind of hard to make without any special chemicals but you can make a scoopable litter with shredded newspaper!! What you need to do is, rip some newspaper into shreds or you can even use a paper shredder, which would probably be easier. After you have it all shredded soak in it some water to help remove some of the ink on the paper. Once most of the ink is gone, rinse the shredded paper out, and kind of squish it in your hands to keep helping the ink come out. Squeeze out the excess water and let the shreds of paper dry in a tub, make sure to separate anything that is clumped together. Now take some baking soda and knead it into the paper until you end up with a crumbly mixture. Make sure it air dries before you put it into you cats litter box.
Some cats are very particular about their kitty litter so don't be surprised or upset if this doesn't work for your feline friend! So as we all know the cat litter you buy in the stores have odor blocking chemicals in them so your litter box doesn't stink up your whole house, so the only con of making your own is it probably wont have those odor blocking chemicals. So although it is most cost efficient to make your own it probably won't smell very good! LOL
I hope this helps anyone who is looking to save some money with their feline friends' necessities! Thank you for reading!!
