How PrettyLitter Works
What's so special about PrettyLitter?
PrettyLitter is made from amorphous silica gel, which has several
amazing benefits from its lightweight nature to its dreamy appearance.
Our favorite is its super absorbency that wicks moisture and even helps
prevent bacterial growth that could lead to UTIs.
Our unique, proprietary formulation changes color to help detect early
signs of illness. You could call this the “secret sauce” of our product.
(We’ll go into detail about this in our “How does the color change
“I can't believe how spoiled I've become with this litter. It makes dealing with cat excrement so much easier! I love Pretty Litter. A lot.”
We designed PrettyLitter with proprietary health monitoring technology
to help signal some potential health issues early before you may even
notice symptoms in your cat.
PrettyLitter reacts to certain urinary elements such as levels of
acidity and alkalinity to make color changes visible to the naked eye or
Dark green or blue
This means your cat’s urine is alkaline indicating
Increased risk of struvite stone formation in the bladder
Certain species of bacteria of feline urinary tract infection
(bacteria that causes the infection can increase urine pH)
Yellow to orange
This means that your cat’s urine is acidic indicating
Kidney disease or kidney tubular acidosis
Calcium oxalate crystal formation
This shows the presence of blood indicating possible:
Urinary tract infection
Renal pathology (renal hematuria)
What is silica gel?
By weight, silica makes up more than 25% of the earth’s crust. As such,
it’s a mineral found all around in nature.
Silica gel, or Synthetic Amorphous Silica (SAS) is a form of silica that
has been widely used in topical and oral medicines, food and cosmetics
for decades. Meaning it’s very likely you already use (and love) several
silica gel products.
How does silica gel cat litter work?
PrettyLitter’s silica gel crystals have millions of tiny pores in each
grain. In fact, because of these pores, one small scoop of PrettyLitter
has a surface area larger than a football field — no wonder one bag goes
Additionally, because PrettyLitter absorbs so well, it means you need
less litter to last you and your cat a whole month. This makes our bags
smaller and lighter.
Fun fact: PrettyLitter is up to 80% lighter than traditional litters.
"Well, it happened today.... my pretty litter turned red.... rushed my
baby (13 years old!) to the vet and no blockage, but high red blood
cell count - he has an infection with some inflammation. Tonight he
seems like himself after an injection... THANK YOU PRETTY LITTER!!!! #wortheverypenny!"
