Ways to Pamper Your Cat While Also Being Green

Cats can be delightful and devoted pets deserving quality care from their owners. You can also be kind to the environment by selecting green gifts for your feline friend. Here are some eco-sensitive ways to show consideration for both your pet and the environment.

Ways to Pamper Your Cat While Also Being Green

Nontoxic Bedding

Get your cat a comfortable, chemical-free bed to ensure safety for both your pet and the environment.

Look for manufacturing labels or marketing brands that offer cat bedding that contains no formaldehyde or flame retardants.

Materials like cotton or wool should be obtained naturally from plants and animals that are raised organically and treated humanely.

Avoid cat beds with plastic liners or metal zippers that may contain materials or have undergone manufacturing processes that are potentially harmful to your cat or to nature.

Organic Cat Litter

Shop for kitty litter that is made of natural substances like reclaimed wood and lumber, naturally renewable wood fiber, natural walnut shells, or natural, heat-processed corn cobs.

Check the labels or product ingredients to avoid litter that contains artificial dyes or scents.

Choose a brand that is biodegradable and will not harm the environment.

Organic cat litter made of natural ingredients will keep your pet healthy and safe.

Healthy Kitty Food

Certified organic cat food is a good choice to protect both your pet and the planet.

Select brands that comply with USDA National Organic Program Standards.

These standards ensure responsibly sourced ingredients without prohibited pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides.

Meat from animals that have been raised without growth hormones or antibiotics is recommended along with free ranging poultry that eats organic feed.

Some cat foods contain vegetables like carrots.

Packaging should also be safe for the environment without using forever chemicals or materials that contaminate the soil, water, or air during decomposition.

Natural Cat Toys

Fun toys are available in natural fibers that are responsibly sourced.

Lacking dyes and chemicals that are harmful to your pet, the family, or the earth, eco-safe playthings for your cat can be as simple as a natural wool string.

A simple round, wooden ball made from products that are free from chemical additives or treatments is another basic toy that can keep your pet entertained.

Adding non-toxic paints or trim can be added to the toy to make it appear life-like and enhance your pet’s playtime.

Keep your cat happy and healthy by adding these basic but important eco-friendly products to the daily routine.

You will feel good about providing quality care for your cat while also protecting the earth.

I've been transitioning over to newspaper pellet litter - hate that it comes in a plastic bag but one cat loves the tear off strip as a toy. She carries them around meowing like she's killed a snake and saved the household.

Love these woofs?
