are oust air sanitizers ok to be around cats?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i was thinking of getting an unscented one (i think they have them) with a fan for the "kitty litter room" (actually the art room).

it says on the package not to use in small pet areas that are not well-ventilated, but the room is a fairly large bedroom and i keep the door open.

any other ideas for fairly cheap odor reducers? i use arm & hammer clumping litter which is VERY good, but it stinks when i change the box.

i recently purchased a large air purifier- maybe i can move it in there a few hours a day.

i'd appreciate feedback about the oust though.

I'd think it would be ok. I've seen some "sponges" with charcoal in them that really help. You find them in what looks like a flattened cottage cheese container. I've seen them at grocery stores, dollar stores and hardwear stores. Thing is, they don't have any sent AND work very much like baking soda. Just a thought.

How does your air purifier work? my boyfriend has many allergies (including cats, but only some cats...which includes mine) and I was thinking that I might look into them in the future.

I use the plug in air freshners, but to get rid of cooking smells such as vegetables i've used Oust but only when Rosie and Sophie are upstairs away from it.

www.citypet.com works great to clear the air of odors and clay dust

I've heard good things about that Citypet ionic air filter.

thanks everyone for the input, especially pointing me toward citypet.

i just picked up these awesome litter boxes- they're boodah boxes, but are huge and look kind of like little igloos. i will have to post pics once they are set up. the kitties go up a tiny ramp to get in, then it's all contained- they can kick litter around; i don't think smell will get out, etc.

the purifier i just got is a whirlpool hepa. shuld do the job, but the citypet one for the art room would be great.

I've been using the Oust fan (unscented) and placing it behind the Booda Dome. The dome is angled to fit in the corner of a room so the boys can't reach it.

Oh, did you get the Booda Scoop too?

i didn't see a boodah scoop. are they special in some way? wish i'd gotten one of those, too (also more liners- only got one package; i was in a hurry).

The Booda Scoop comes with a cannister that folds down. You stick the scooper in the flap that folds down, then the flap will go up on it's own. I use this because it hides the scooper from the cats and any guests that come over. It also has a rake edge so you can clean the rakes on a Littermaid (if you have one). I thought it was a pretty neat design.

I have also been considering one of these Oust fans, so I asked Sierra's Specialist yesterday if they are safe. He answered that they are safe, and in fact he has one in his own home with his cats. I believe I may get one.
If anyone finds any different info, I hope you will tell us! I would never want to use anything that may be a danger to Sierra.
