*how much water was absorbed by the litter without leaking to the bottom of the tray
I poured Breeder’s Choice cat litter from varying distances into a tray. Then, I recorded PM2.5 and the air quality index using an air quality monitor.
From close range (0cm), the air quality monitor picked up a dangerous spike in PM2.5 dust. This occurred when pouring and patting the tray (to simulate cat use).
PM2.5 particles are small and linked with adverse health effects through respiration. Short term exposure can result in acute symptoms in vulnerable people like children and the elderly. Long term exposure may increase the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular disease.
Whether this litter is safe will depend on a myriad of factors including where you put the litter and ventilation. Fortunately it seems safer at distance (30cm).

Cat Preference and Usage
I tested Breeder’s Choice cat litter alongside a clay litter (Smitten).
Our cats used this almost as much as clay, suggesting they enjoy using it. That didn’t surprise me given it’s soft and lightweight.
In terms of waste, the feces didn’t get coated well by the litter and smelled a bit. I didn’t pick up any musty urine odor though.
Post testing, I emptied the litter tray back into a bag. I didn’t get any stick remains on the tray, so the absorption held up well over two days of use.
This test lasted only three days. More time may be necessary to get more accurate results.
Although I emptied the litter tray throughout the day, it wasn’t possible to clean out the tray at night. This may have influenced results.
I have two kittens, and it’s possible one kitten might have used another tray if another was occupied.
Finally the litter boxes used in this article are only 42cm long. Research suggests cats prefer larger boxes (at least 1.5x the size of your cat).
