Dr. Elsey's cat litter facility

The new cat litter production facility offers closer access to ingredient source, according to officials.

Dr. Elsey’s, a veterinarian-owned cat product brand, is moving its cat litter production facility to Cheyenne, Wyoming. The new location offers closer access to the source of silver sodium bentonite clay and better access to the railroad system used for product transportation, officials said in a statement.

“At 180,000 square feet, the new production facility, including rail shed, is four times the size of Dr. Elsey’s previous facility located in Englewood, Colo.,” said Aaron Westcott, CEO of Dr. Elsey’s.

The increase in space offers new opportunities for the brand to further expand its product line of solutions-based litter products for cats and meet the complex needs of pet owners, according to officials.

“We try to speak for the cat,” said Dr. Bruce Elsey, founder of the company. “Coming at this from a feline veterinarian perspective, I think we’ve been able to hone in on what cats need. We’ve always put ourselves in the pet’s paws, always identifying what is best for the animal, not for publicity.”

Dr. Elsey’s offers a variety of litters, including Cat Attract, which is designed for cats that do not consistently use their litter box. Blended with a natural herbal attractant, Cat Attract is the “problem cat training litter,” according to officials.
