Potential health issues that can be associated with color change include certain types of urinary tract infections, bladder inflammation, kidney problems and more.

Save Time and Money with Free Monthly Shipping to Your Door:

Instead of trips to the store, Pretty Litter is delivered right to your door. No more last minute trips to the grocery store or hauling heavy boxes of litter home. PrettyLitter simply arrives at your doorstep right when you need it. Cross that chore off your list forever. No more lifting heavy litter again.

Clean, Safe and Easy for Homes with Cats:

Less refilling and less mess. PrettyLitter’s formula makes it easier for you to use and clean your litter box. Its highly absorbent crystals soak in moisture and trap all odor so one bag can last all month. That means less work, no odor and less mess. PrettyLitter uses naturally occurring ingredients that are safe for cats, even when they breathe or ingest it.
