Cat litter produced from wood
Untreated wood is the perfect raw material for cat litter, because it is naturally antibacterial. Cat litter produced from wood does not need to be fragranced as it exudes a natural wood smell. And if no chemical additives are used in its manufacture, as in the case of COSYCAT, you have a 100% biodegradable cat litter. Our COSYCAT wood litter is sustainably produced and can be disposed of in an eco-friendly manner.
Clumping litter made from wood fibres
COSYCAT is a clumping litter produced purely mechanically from wood. A special manufacturing process is used for this. We reduce the wood to chips and turn it into wood fibres. The fibres are then granulated, increasing their absorbency to seven times their weight. Thanks to this extraordinary absorbency and rapid odour binding, our clumping cat litter ensures optimal feline hygiene.
As soon as the wood fibres come into contact with urine, the outstanding clumping properties of COSYCAT come into play. The moistened wood fibres swell instantly to form a solid clump that does not disintegrate when removed. A few fibres are sufficient to bind all the liquid. The clumps and solids are removed, leaving the remaining clean litter in the tray. This makes our clumping litter extremely economical. Top the toilet up from time to time with fresh litter. A layer roughly 5 centimetres thick is required to permit satisfactory clumping. The litter can remain in the cat toilet for up to 4 weeks, after which the tray should be emptied of litter and cleaned thoroughly. You’ll find a video providing information about the clumping properties of COSYCAT in our Advice section at Clumping litter – good for cats and the environment.

Cat hygiene with absorbent litter
If you make a conscious decision not to use clumping litter, but are nevertheless seeking an ecological variant, our non-clumping wood pellet litter COSYPET is a good choice. COSYPET is an absorbent litter that is suitable both for small cats and rodents. The litter is produced from untreated wood that is turned into pellets. COSYPET boasts the same advantages as our COSYCAT clumping litter, but does not form clumps. As soon as the pellets come into contact with urine, they swell and disintegrate into sawdust. The absorbent litter should be replaced completely after no more than 1 week. If using a sieve litter tray, you can change the sawdust in the bottom tray more frequently if necessary and top up the top tray with fresh litter. You get an economical cat litter in this way.
Wood litter is kind to the environment
The wood used in COSYCAT and COSYPET derives from native forests and is PEFC-certified. This means that the forests from which we obtain our raw wood material are sustainably managed. As a manufacturer we thus ensure that the forest habitat is maintained for people and animals.
No chemical additives are mixed in with the wood fibres during production; their extreme absorbency is acquired solely through the manufacturing process. The result is a natural cat litter that weighs little, thereby reducing CO2 emissions during transportation. And since our cat litter is biodegradable and compostable, it can be disposed of with organic waste or on the compost heap. You can also flush it down the toilet. For more information on how to dispose of our cat litter correctly in the toilet, see our Advice section.
