The Smart Cat Box is in my opinion one of the very best natural, non-clay litter systems on the market. I met the inventor, Sarah Maguire, President of Providence House Manufacturing and immediately understood that she is completely dedicated to creating an alternative cat litter box that is healthier for you and your cat and better for the environment.
The Smart Cat Box is the original two-part litter box. It uses all-natural, non-absorbent litter pellets and a patented two-part box design to separate solid and liquid waste. The top portion of the box holds natural safflower seed litter that allows urine to pass through the slotted floor into a covered urine collection reservoir below. Solids can be easily scooped from the litter pellets and liquids are disposed of by emptying the reservoir. By separating solid and liquid waste and containing urine in a covered reservoir, the Smart Cat Box dramatically reduces unwanted odors.
Healthy for Cats & People
Concerns about the health risks of using clay and clumping cat litters that contain silica and sodium bentonite have caused some cat owners to seek out non-clay litter alternatives. The safflower seed litter used in the Smart Cat Box is completely natural and safe for both cats and humans.
Collecting liquid waste separately also allows cat owners to easily test blood sugar levels in urine for diabetic and special needs cats. This feature of the Smart Cat Box makes it an excellent tool for both cat owners and veterinarians who need to regularly monitor a cat’s health.
Healthy for the Environment
Traditional clay litters have a negative impact on the environment on both ends of the lifecycle since clay litter is a non-renewable resource that is gathered by strip mining and it adds to our growing landfills. The safflower seed litter used in the Smart Cat Box is made from a renewable resource that is fully biodegradable and is grown in the U.S.
I’ve used the Smart Cat Box for years. The reservoir is very easy to empty and the cats like the safflower seed pellets. I added on the extender walls (shown below) to give the sides of the box a little more height to prevent seeds from being kicked out. The seeds are completely dust free and can be rinsed several times before requiring complete replacement.
The Smart Cat Box, the safflower seed pellets, and the extender walls are all available directly from the manufacturer at SmartCatBox.com.
