Did You Know ... The First Cat Litter was Made for Chickens?

PetSmart Banfield, The Pet Hospital®

Your rating: None

The first clay-based kitty litter was originally marketed as poultry nesting material. Ed Lowe of Cassopolis, Michigan, created a clay pellet mixture called Fuller's Earth, but local farmers weren't buying it. On a cold January day in 1948, Kay Draper - desperate because the sand that she used to fill her cat's litter box was frozen solid - gave Lowe's clay pellets a try. It worked so well that she recommended the product to her friends, and a new business was born.
