In Reply to: Does Non-allergin Cat Litter Exist? HELP!!! posted by Charlyn on November 29, 1999 at 15:12:51:
: Every cat litter I have tried produces an asthma attack. The hardest-clumping I've found ("Tidy Cats") took
: a long time to become sensitized to, but unfortunately, even that brand eventually caused an asthmatic
: reaction, too. I am desperate here-breathing is, to put it mildly, slightly important to me.
: Before I hear a collective yell (GET RID OF THE 2 CATS!), I should say that they are kept for more
: than just pets. They are a major emotional help in fighting my chronic depression (don't laugh-hey,they
: work!). I will try anything (almost) first.
: My duplex is too small to allow the placement of the litter box in a far-away spot, both my daughter
: and I have air filtration units in our rooms, and I have replaced the house air intake filter with a HEPA filter
: Also, when i clean the box (daily), I wear a surgical mask.
: So, anyone out there who has solved this problem?
Try Litter Pearls, made by Harvest Ventures. I have also have asthma and 8 cats, and swear by it. It's made up of little silica balls. The litter is a little pricy, but it lasts much longer than conventional litter and your lungs are worth it!
