The Cateco® litter box’s unique air circulation technology dries up the litter area in a natural and continuous manner, which significantly restricts the proliferation of potentially harmful bacteria, also responsible for strong, foul odours. It is clinically proven to reduce odours by up to 86% (tests conducted in an ISO 17025 laboratory).
Conventional litter boxes, unlike the Cateco®, do not allow litter to dry adequately. Accumulated humidity, intensified by urine and feces, leads to the propagation of bacteria responsible for strong, foul odours and frequent maintenance.
Heat from urine and feces, along with the Cateco® litter box’s design, activates a natural air circulation process which is the cornerstone of the Cateco® litter box’s air circulation technology.
The Cateco® litter box’s unique air circulation technology naturally neutralizes even the smallest clumps, left behind during daily maintenance (even if maintenance is thorough), which end up contaminating the entire litter box and make it malodorous. This feature allows Cateco® litter box owners to extend the period of time between complete cleanings.
The Cateco® litter box naturally and efficiently neutralizes the biochemical process responsible for the propagation of strong, foul odours.
Liquids that reach the bottom of the Cateco® litter box simply go through the Aerator Mesh (which is tear and puncture proof) and are absorbed in the Cateco® Dry-Pad, placed in the lower part of the litter box. Consequently, complete cleanings are much less frequent: we recommend them only every 3 to 5 months if you’re using a high-end clumping litter.
The Cateco® litter box was tested with a wide variety of clumping and absorbing litters, both mineral and plant-based. It works with the vast majority of them and extends their life-cycle: no irritating transition issues for you or your pet.
Lastly, the Cateco® litter box’s unique air circulation technology is « passive », which means it does not require mechanical or manual activation.
