BREEZE FAQs

Can I use alternative materials or litters in place of the Tidy Cats Breeze pellets?
No, the Breeze pellets have been specially designed for use in the Breeze Litter Box System.

They allow moisture to drain into the absorbent pad below. This combination of repellency and absorbency make the Breeze pellets ideally suited for use in the Breeze system.

Can I use other absorbent pads in the Breeze system?
We do not recommend other pads for the Breeze Litter Box System. Other pads may not be designed for the proper size and shape to fit perfectly in the system. Additionally, other pads may not be designed to accommodate up to one week’s worth of urine for a single cat.

Are the pellets/pads biodegradable? 
No, the pellets are not biodegradable. The main component of our Breeze pads is paper pulp/cellulose, which is a renewable resource.

Why is my cat eating litter pellets? Will it hurt him?
A kitten or cat may investigate newly introduced litter just as they would with any new household item. This may include sniffing, digging and, in some cases, chewing on the new item. This activity should decline as your cat adjusts to the new litter system. 

As with anything new introduced into your household, we recommend monitoring your cat when introducing them to any new litter to ensure they are adapting to their new litter box appropriately. If a pet is seen eating a large amount of litter pellets, a veterinarian should be consulted and plenty of fresh water should be made available.

We recommend trying an alternative litter if a cat is chronically eating the Breeze pellets.

Will my pet become ill if Breeze litter is ingested?
Our litter pellets are made of non-toxic material; however, they are not digestible. If you believe your cat may be eating or chewing on the litter, we recommend monitoring them closely to ensure they are not ingesting large amounts of litter. If a pet is seen eating a large amount of litter pellets, a veterinarian should be consulted and the cat should be observed closely for the next several hours. Plenty of fresh water should be made available.

We recommend trying an alternative litter if a cat is chronically eating the Breeze pellets. Please call us if you have any questions.

What is zeolite?
Zeolite refers to a family of highly porous, non-toxic, naturally occurring minerals. Zeolites are used in a variety of applications and can be found in a variety of consumer products, including water filtration systems, water softening systems, and detergents.

How many Breeze Systems should I have?
Animal behaviorists recommend multiple litter boxes even for single cat households, regardless of litter type/brands used. Some cats may prefer to use one box for urination and another for defecation. Multiple litterboxes in multi-cat households can help support overall litter box usage compliance and cat well-being.

One Breeze system per cat plus one additional system (i.e., 2 cats = 3 litter systems) is ideal.

My cat will only urinate in the box. What do I do?
Make sure you have the recommended number of Breeze Litter Box Systems. One Breeze system per cat plus one additional system (i.e., 2 cats = 3 litter systems) is ideal. Here are some helpful tips:

Start Fresh

  1. Empty and clean the OLD box(es) with a mild soap and start with fresh litter.
  2. Keep the Breeze Litter Box System next to the OLD box.
  3. Combine the existing litter in the OLD box with 2 cups of Breeze pellets.
  4. Each day, maintain the OLD box and add ¼ cup of Breeze litter pellets until the OLD box contains 70% Breeze litter pellets and 30% old litter.
    If cat continues to use the OLD box with this 70/30 mixture, slowly start reducing the amount of litter in the OLD box by ½ cup per day until there is hardly any litter left in the OLD box.
  5. Once your cat is consistently using the Breeze Litter Box System to urinate and defecate, remove the OLD box.

What if my cat will only defecate in the Breeze system (not urinate)?
Please make sure you have the recommended number of Breeze Litter Box Systems, one system per cat, plus one extra. Some helpful tips also include:

  • Check the tray for urine
    • If urine is present in the tray:
      • Remove the OLD box, as this will allow the cat plenty of time to become acclimated to the new pellets.
    • If urine is not present,  follow the steps below:
  1. Empty and clean the OLD box(es) with a mild soap and start with fresh litter.
  2. Keep the Breeze Litter Box System next to the OLD box.
  3. Combine the existing litter in the OLD box with 2 cups of Breeze pellets.
  4. Each day, maintain the OLD box and add ¼ cup of Breeze litter pellets until the OLD box contains 70% Breeze litter pellets and 30% old litter.
  5. If cat continues to use the OLD box with this 70/30 mixture, slowly start reducing the amount of litter in the OLD box by ½ cup per day until there is hardly any litter left in the OLD box.
  6. Once your cat is consistently using the Breeze Litter Box System to urinate and defecate, remove the OLD box.
