It was only a matter of time before the cat litter was officially banned, and we’re pleased to announce the end of the cat sift.
Cat litter is not only a major problem in Australia, it is also a major source of litter in the UK, the US and elsewhere.
The problem is so serious that Australia’s Minister for Primary Industries, Greg Hunt, has ordered that litter should be replaced at the expense of other litter in all cat shelters, in an effort to curb littering and ensure that cats are getting the best possible care.
This ban will take effect from June 1.

The UK has already been implementing the ban.
Earlier this year, councils in Greater Manchester and the North West began banning the litter, in response to concerns that cat litter posed a health risk.
The change is the result of the UK’s Department of Health and Environment, which has worked with the Department of the Environment to determine whether there was any risk to the health of cats.
The ban will affect a total of 1,000 cat shelters across the UK.
We are also making the UK the first country to ban littering in every shelter, including the city-based cats in the capital, London.
The Department of Environment and Heritage, which is responsible for regulating litter in shelters, will continue to monitor the situation to ensure that the ban is being implemented appropriately.
