been controversy about wood litters containing oils or phenols that could be
harmful to a cat's liver or respiratory tract (based in part on reactions from
rabbits and rodents). I don't know if it's true...mfrs of wood litters claim that
their products are safe...but I just avoid wood litters in the event that
there is risk. There are a number of other plant litters with less risk that work
well, such as those made from corn or wheat (providing the cat is not
allergic to grains)...or those made from paper. // Rosemary
