- Bacteria in your litter box, is the reason your house smells like cat pee?
- Ammonia gas can have its harmful affects on you, your pet, and your family?
- Ammonia gas is the leading cause of upper respiratory infections in cats?
Cat litter companies make so many outrageous claims about how their litter is the best at eliminating odor. Finding any objective scientific proof to back those claims is near impossible. What you smell in the litter box of your cat seems like it should be pretty straight forward - feces and urine?
There’s more to the odor in your litter box than meets the eye, however. The main odor molecule that your nose detects coming from the litter box is ammonia. Cat urine is only 0.5% ammonia. So why is the smell coming from the box so strong?
The answer is bacteria! Bacteria from the feces interacts with the urine and massive amounts of ammonia odor molecules are released. Fresh Air Litter prevents bacteria growth in the box with its patented carbon pad and breaks down the ammonia in the cat urine at a molecular level. The result is FRESH AIR!
Understanding the litter box odor is as easy as 1-2-3, yet almost every cat litter manufacturer has some magic crystal or additive on their packaging that makes a wild claim about odor control and ends up falling way short of their claim once you take it home for a try.
The basic causes of litter box odor are as follows:
- Biological excretion
- Odor Causing Bacteria
- Odor Molecules
1 : Your beloved feline expels feces and urine also known as Biological excretions
2 : Bacteria feeds on the feces with the urine and grows at very rapids rates producing lots and lots of odor molecules
3 : Odor molecules from the biological excretion and odor causing bacteria interact with your nose and suddenly you are not breathing so easy anymore.
Fresh Air Litter is the first and only litter in the world with Triple Action Odor control that eliminates:
- Fecal Odor,
- Urine Odor &
- Odor Causing Bacteria.
Does bacteria growth in your litter box pose health risks to you, your cat and your family?
The most common bacteria found in a litter box is Escherichia Coli which is more commonly known as E. Coli. This bacteria found in cat feces can cause Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and mild fevert in animals and humans if ingested. In some cases, if left untreated, it can even cause death.
Fresh Air Litter comes with a Patented Odor Eliminating Pad™ that prevents bacteria growth in your litter box significantly reducing health risks to you, your cat and your family.
Is your litter box really clean after scooping out the clumps?
So you have removed the clumps from your cats litter box for the 15th time this week and you feel pretty good about how well you care for your feline friend. The litter box is clean and you have sacrificed your own sense of smell and cleanliness, but is it really clean?
Bacteria in the litter box feeds off of the biological excretions of urine and feces and rapidly mulitplys spreading all throughout the box. Unfortunately removing the clumps does not remove the bacteria. It’s still their!!
Fresh Air Litter has a Patented Odor Eliminating Pad™ and does not require any removal of clumps to remain pristine. Its litter-ally maintenance free. It is trusted, safe for people, pets & the planet and is the only litter in the world that actually deals with bacteria (the problem).
