General Questions

What's the perfect litter for me?

Click here and let us help you pick the perfect litter for you by answering a couple of questions concerning your needs. 

How do you use VanCat?

Click here to view how to use your VanCatUK litter & see the litter in action 

How much will I use?

The amount that you would get through is dependent on your cats habits and the size of your litter tray. If you are new to using VanCat then we would suggest the following: (based on our W225 series).

You would initially need approximately 5.9Lt to fill a standard litter tray. Keeping to our 7cm depth guideline, only removing the clumps/waste (not the entire tray) and keeping the litter topped up as needed. We would estimate that after the initial fill, one 11.8Lt bag should last 1 cat 2 months.

The Grey and W180 series have the highest absorption capacity therefore you may find this litter lasting considerably longer than our W225, though this is completely dependent on your cats toileting habits. 

Is this litter suitable for kittens and which series is best for them?

All of our litters are suitable for kittens. Our W180, G160 & G180 are perfect for kittens as they have a smaller granule size. Making it the ideal product for their sensitive paws!

What is the most popular product?

Our most popular series is the W225, which comes in a wide range of scents. However, if you find that your cat is leaving the tray a little smelly then we would recommend the grey series (G160 and G180) as this is made from active carbon and has a higher odour retention – though this series is unscented.

Do you have offers?

Yes! All offers can be viewed here.

Do you do free samples?

We do not offer free samples, but we sometimes run giveaways and raffles on our social media so be sure to follow us there – @VanCatUK

Is it clumping?

All of our litters are clumping, they range from super to ultra-clumping. Super clumping is the W225 and ultra clumping (slightly more) is the G160, G180 and W180.

Is it suitable for a litter robot?

All of our litters will work with a litter robot as they range from super to ultra-clumping. Our ultra-clumping range includes, G160, G180 and W180 the litter in these series’ consist of a fine granule that is close to the thickness of sea sand, so not only is it perfect for kittens/ cats with sensitive paws but it works brilliantly with the litter robot due to the consistency of the granule.

Is it biodegradable?

Our litter is made from 100% natural, environmentally friendly and biodegradable calcium bentonite. You can learn more about the litter here, https://www.vancatuk.com/about/

Can I flush it down the toilet?

You cannot flush it, however it is 100% natural, environmentally friendly and biodegradable so it is perfectly fine to dispose of in the general waste.

Are the cats put off by the scents?

No, our fragrances are 100% natural mainly being sourced from flowers. They are fairly subtle and only there to mask the smell of the business in the tray.

Does the litter track?

This can be dependent on the habits of each cat, however, the litter contains everything needed to prevent tracking. VanCat has excellent absorption capacity, absorbing water up to 4-5 times its volume this prevents the litter from sticking to your cats paws and tracking around the house. Customers whose cats have previously tracked the litter have said getting a tray with a lid on it and a little mat in front of the tray has made a difference.
