A cat litter product is provided and includes manufacture primarily
from modified corn starch which is processed through mash distillation.
The litter product is pelletized via an extrusion technology process
so as to form particles the size of wheat grain. The litter product
provides, collectively, a non-toxic and naturally safe, biodegradable,
odor-eliminating, scented, anti-bacterial litter that clumps in
a convenient size for easy disposal and which has little dust and
reduces tracking by cats.
A cat litter box is provided, comprising four side walls connected
in a rectangular shape, a rounded top edge, two hinged bottom trap
doors, and protective edges connected to the bottom trap doors to
keep litter from emptying when the doors are closed. The cat litter
box has particular utility in connection with quickly and completely
emptying all litter contents from the box through the bottom trap
doors when the cat litter box is lifted.
A cat litter device includes a drum rotatable about an axis for
containing litter with the drum having a front and a backend. A
cat opening is disposed in the front end and a waste exit is disposed
in the backend, which is coaxial with the rotation axis. A filter
is fixed for rotation within the drum between the front and back
ends for sifting feces and agglomerated filter from the litter.
The filter conforms to a drum interior to prevent breakup of fragile
agglomerates. An exterior waste tube is in communication with the
filter and the waste exit for receiving feces and agglomerated litter
from the filter and transferring the feces and agglomerated litter
to the waste exit. An exterior waste tube is coupled to the waste
exit for enabling rotation of the drum thereabout and a collection
bag is removably connected to the exterior waste tube for receiving
and disposing of the feces and agglomerated litter.
An apparatus for animal litter called a Cat Litter Pod. This apparatus
features a bottom built-in liner, impervious to liquids; a top gauze-like,
cheesecloth material to cover the litter granules; a way to join
the top and bottom to provide an encasement space; and absorbent
granules of various litter material inside the encasement. This
litter pod provides convenience and portability to necessary sanitation
devices for cats that are kept inside. Configured as a low profile
and disposable this apparatus is particularly important to older
or infirm cats that have problems with limited mobility.
