A report by the Indian Council of Veterinary Medical Research (ICVM) on cat litter in India states that over the past 20 years, litter in urban centres has increased from 1.7 billion tonnes to 7.5 billion tonnes.
“The cat litter industry is a highly mechanised business.
The manufacturing of cat litter is a costly business,” Dr Prakash Sood, chairman of the ICVM, told Business Standard.
“What has made it possible is that the government has taken the initiative of giving subsidies to pet owners.
There is a need for a system that helps these people, to make them financially viable.”
The report also states that India is one of the only countries where a single brand of cat-litter, Mango, is in operation.
It was launched in 2012 by a Delhi-based company called Kishor Petpet and was marketed under the brand name Mango.
A new version of the brand has been launched under the Mango brand name in Mumbai.
While Mango’s cat litter was introduced in Mumbai, in Delhi and in Rajasthan, it was not marketed to the public.
However, it has been made available in a number of other cities in the country.
The Mango cat litter cost Rs.1,900, compared to Rs.600 in Delhi, Rs.400 in Raja Sadar in Uttar Pradesh and Rs.200 in Chandigarh.
The report notes that the cat litter produced in the cities has a higher density than in the countryside.
“Cat litter is also highly recyclable.
If it gets into a landfill, it can be reused and recycled,” said Dr Sood.
The city-based manufacturer of cat cat litter has been in operation since 2004.
The company also makes cat litter for other cats, including those that have been bred to live in city parks.
Mango says that it sells a range of cat toys, including the Kishors Palsy, which it sells in stores across India, and in its online store.
However it does not sell cat litter to humans.
Dr Sookananda Bhatia, who is a professor at Delhi’s Centre for Animal Welfare Studies, said that the industry needs a better way to deal with litter.
“We need a system where people are encouraged to help each other to solve the problem, and we need a better process for ensuring that people don’t waste litter,” she said.
“If the cat owners were to help the cat with litter, there is a possibility of solving the problem.
However the cat should be fed regularly.
The cat’s diet needs to be supplemented with a balanced diet of food, as well as regular exercise,” Dr Bhatias said.
