Top 5: Green Things for Your Cat

Top 5: Green Things for Your Cat

We've got two indoor cats and we find it strangely fulfilling to figure out the healthiest and smartest ways to care for them. It's sort of silly. They're pretty low-impact as it is. They bathe in their own saliva (gross, sorry); they eschew almost all material possessions; they use zero electricity and run in fear/disgust of the vacuum and hair dryer. Still, here are some of their favorite products (please add to the list!)...

World's Best Cat Litter: We purchased this after reading all the comments on our Biodegradable Kitty Litter post. What a delight! It clumps well and there is no awful, noxious dust.

Castor & Pollux Organix Adult Cat Food: We can't even explain the gusto with which the cats switched from their old food to this brand. There was much purring and excitement involved.

Pooch Pick-Up Biodegradable Bags: Yes, they're marketed toward dog owners, but they work great for litter clean-up. Our litter is flushable, but the plumbing won't tolerate such stunts.

Kittypod: We don't own one of these, but we like them. They're a bed, they're a scratching post, they're cardboard (recyclable), and they're better looking than the ugly carpeted thing we currently employ.

• Balls of previously used tin foil = a form of recycling and hours of cat fun.

What green products do your cats love?
