I wrote about this in February (click this to read the page – opens new tab) and here is a live eaxmple of how this litter can be devastating to cat health. Purina also make a very fine powder litter which has caused no end of cat health problems it is alleged.
“I am going through this now my cat ate the breeze cat pellets. He is in the hospital getting blood transfusions due to it making him anemic. I’m up to 4,000 [US dollars] in vet Bill’s this litter needs to be removed. The customer service said the same thing it will pass it does not. This product is toxic.”
On this page there are two comments on PoC from a visitor, Venus Killian, about how her cat ate Purina Breeze cat litter and why it happened. The end result was devastating to her and her cat as can be seen by the second comment. What the heck is going on? How do the pellets start to smell like cat food from cat poop? Is there some sort of chemical reaction taking place between the litter pellets and the poop? What are the pellets made of? It looks like a wood based pellet.
Venus’s comments are reproduced verbatim for authenticity.
“Here are x Ray’s this crap needs to be removed. My boy maine coon will be in the hospital for at least 3 to 4 more days breeze litter is dangerous it takes on the smell of there food from the poop. This then gets them eating large amounts of it.”
Venus says that there are metal particles in the litter which were ingested by her cat.
“Simba finally had some come out today in his stool all the pieces had shiny and dull pieces of metal. He was so anaemic….He was almost dead in my arms his eyes glazed over very shallow breathing I was so scared. This should never happen. This hospital worked tirelessly to save my Simba.”
