Press release: Catalyst Pet

There’s a new player in the small animal bedding world. Catalyst Pet unveils its new sustainable, high performing, Douglas fir wood-based small animal bedding.

Catalyst Pet first launched in 2020 with a revolutionary clumping softwood cat litter. From the start, Catalyst Pet has kept the health of the planet — and the health of cats — a top priority. This small bedding product also has that mission in mind.

Catalyst’s wood-based small pet bedding is made from locally sourced, 100 percent natural Douglas Fir residuals, which small pets and their parents love because of its thoughtful, comfort-focused design. The bedding has a crafted thickness, shape, smoothness and flexibility, making your small pet cozy and content in their space, along with keeping the space dry, sanitary and a breeze to clean up.

This kiln-dried Douglas Fir product checks all the boxes for a high-performing small animal bedding: advanced hypoallergenic properties, natural, maximally absorbent of liquid and odors, non-toxic, and, of course, sustainable. The bedding is also a perfectly safe option for your small furry friend. Even your little pals with respiratory issues can rest easy, as the bedding is 99 percent dust-free, providing an exceptional air quality environment.

“Until now, Lignetics did not have a small animal bedding product, and believe us, it was worth the wait,” says Mark Medearis, VP of the bedding division at Lignetics, Catalyst’s proud parent company. “There are absolutely no additives in Catalyst’s product. Nothing artificial. The wood comes straight from local mills or sometimes the forest floor itself. We’re in the Pacific Northwest, which is Douglas fir territory,” he shares.

Catalyst is the first company to utilize Douglas fir for small animal bedding applications, though it has been successfully used for larger animals like horses.

“This is a very clean product, and we’re excited to offer it as a new and sustainable, biodegradable bedding option for small animals,” Medearis said. “We know Catalyst has long offered high-performance cat litter, and this bedding will be of the same quality and function. Pet parents could even use the fir bedding for their cats in a pinch,” he laughs.
