How To Use

How do I choose litter for my cats?
If your cat hasn't been trained to use a litter box, start with the PottyAid litter. You can get the Original litter if you have kittens, or cats with minor medical conditions (respiratory, urinary, allergy, or post-neuter surgery). Charcoal litter can help with extra odor control for multiple cats.

How many packs do I need?
Each pack of Pottycats litter is intended to last up to 1 month for an average sized cat in a standard size litter box (38cm x 28cm). For kittens, one pack may last more than a month.

  • 1 cat - 1 litter box - 1 pack - 1 month 
  • 2 cats - 1 litter box - 2 packs - 1 month
  • 4 cats - 2 litter boxes - 4 packs - 1 month 

Disclaimer: The duration of use may vary depending on the size and usage of each cat.

What are Pottycats litter made of?
Pottycats litter are made entirely from premium food-grade ingredients which are free from artificial fragrance or coloring, primarily soy/tofu, food gum, starch, and water.

Is Pottycats litter suitable for kittens?
Our litter is ideal for kittens above 3-4 weeks as well as cats of all ages. Our pellets are intended to be a gentler and healthier alternative for cats while still delivering a high level of performance.

What distinguishes Pottycats from other soy/tofu litter?
Pottycats provides excellent litter quality with high soy content resulting a smooth scooping in solid clumps, excellent odour control without the use of any artificial fragrance, and typically lasts longer with no dust and better long-term savings.

You can obtain tofu litter at a lesser price, but it will break during scooping, be dusty, and have an odor after a few days of use, and it will never last.

How often should I clean?
Every day, scoop your cat's urine clumps and feces. Flush only 1-2 clumps at a time. Wash your litter box with soap and water once a month to remove any residue and bacteria.


Why Pottycats flushable?
It disintegrates instantly when flushed and does not clog your plumbing. Flush only 1-2 clumps at a time. DO NOT FLUSH large clumps of leftovers, especially during monthly disposal; instead, dispose of them normally in a recyclable trash bag.


Does Pottycats litter have a shelf life?
Yes, because it is made from entirely food-grade ingredients, it can be kept fresh and sealed for up to 6 months only. Store in a cool, dry place.

My Pottycats litter has a slight smell, is that normal?
Pottycats is made of 100 percent food-grade ingredients and is unscented, so some soy aroma is normal when you open a new pack.

How to stop my cat from eating litter?
Our litter is safe if digested in small amounts, and it is common for first-time cat to use plant-based litter. To prevent your cat from eating the litter, mix it in with your current litter to mark it as non-food. Keep your cat's litter box away from food and water, and stop them whenever they try to eat.

Is Pottycats litter suitable for all types of litter box?

Yes, our litter is suitable for all types of litter boxes, including open, covered, sifter, and self-cleaning. Only use PottyAid litter with the Litter Robot.

Do I need extra packs for a larger litter box?
Yes, if you're using a larger litter box, such as PottyBox, you'll need extra packs. For 1 cat, this box requires 1 pack and 1/2 per month.

What if my cats share a litter box?
If you have multiple cats sharing a single litter box, simply count the number of cats to get your packs and change your litter more frequently. A good rule of thumb is to keep the litter height at 1 inch.


Where should I put the litter box in a house?
A quiet location that is convenient for both you and your cat, preferably near the toilet to make cleaning easier. It's also a good idea to have one litter box for each cat.

Why aren't my cats using the litter box?
Changes may cause your cats to stop using the litter box. A dirty litter box, as well as the type of litter used, can have an impact on this. Make sure your cats have enough litter boxes and a clean routine. Choose PottyAid litter to help your cats get back into the litter box. If all else fails, seek veterinary advice to rule out any health issues.

How to switch cat litter?
For 2 weeks, mix half of Pottycats litter with half of your current litter. Once your cat is completely familiar, you can gradually increase the ratio until you completely transition to Pottycats.
