Cat litter is a staple in Indian households and is used to clean the house, cook meals, and clean out cats’ litter bins.
However, cat litter substitutes are increasingly being used to improve the litter quality.
Cat litter substitutes have been used in India since the 1960s and were developed as a result of research conducted by researchers at the National Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).
According to the NIMS study, the main ingredients for cat litter substitute are the following: water, starch, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
However the ingredient list for cat lint is not very clear.
A review published in the Journal of Cleaning Science in 2015 concluded that, “it has been found that cat lice are attracted to starch in the soil and the use of starch as a litter ingredient may be beneficial for the prevention of the growth of the parasite.”
A review by the TIFR found that it was not clear whether the starch was an essential component of cat litter or was a source of nutrients that could contribute to its success.
However since the 1950s, a number of companies have started selling cat litter products.
These include Cat Lint India, Cat Lice, Cat Stain India, and Cat Lips.
The NIMs study found that the cat litter ingredient list was more or less similar to the list of ingredients in the National Cat Laundry Products Directive (NCPD), which is a standardised product list for the supply of food-grade cat litter.
The list is designed to provide quality for the Indian market.
According to a recent report by India Today, the country had only 8% of the cat population living in urban areas, but a study by the Food Research and Marketing Institute of India (FRMI) has found that India has a cat population of nearly 80 million.
The report also found that in 2015, there were nearly 4.7 million cats in the country, and over 1.5 million of these cats were cats belonging to households with poor hygiene.
India has also been facing the issue of litter pollution for the last few years.
Since the 1980s, several cat owners have started filing complaints to the National Commission for Cat Protection and Prevention (NCPCP) in an attempt to get the cat owners to clean their cats.
But the Commission has been unable to act on their complaints because the government does not require the cat owner to pay for litter removal.
A 2015 study by a group of researchers at NIMC found that, out of 5 million litter complaints received by the Commission, only 2.5% of them were resolved.
The researchers, led by Dr Rajendra Yadav, found that only 15% of these complaints were resolved with compensation.
A study by KPMG found that a total of 2.4 million complaints were received from owners with cats with a litter problem in 2016.
This number rose to 3.3 million in 2017, and then to 4.4 mln in 2018.
However even though the NCPCP had started its own programme for the cat-owners, a recent survey found that most people did not feel the need to apply for help from the NCPA.
