Q: What is your favorite/the best cat litter?

November 13, 2008 | By Glassterne | 25 answers | Expired: 2124 days ago

I still have not found a brand of cat litter I am satisfied with.

I ideally would like non-clay litter, however, all of the flushable kinds I have tried STINK, even with regular cleaning.

I also have tried a few brands of clay litter, but it seems like I cannot find a brand that clumps well and doesn't crumble down when I scoop it (Esp. when its...fresh.)

A plus would be a litter that is available in bags instead of highly un-recycleable plastic bins/jugs.
Price doesn't matter! I just want something that works!

I've just started the transition to Essentials Natural Clumping Litter, which is made of corn fibers and comes in bags. Other litters were o.k. in some ways but not in others. So far this one seems to be a good option.

I use The World's Best Cat Litter and have multiple cats and it seems to work well and I like it.

I use a combo of World's Best Multi Cat and Swheat Scoop. The World's Best doesn't clump completely on it's own sometimes, so mixing in the Swheat Scoop helps with that. I don't like the Swheat Scoop by itself because it's pretty dusty and clumps a little too well (sticks to the bottom). For odor control, I sprinkle in some baking soda and clean 2 boxes twice a day for three adult cats.

I use Tidy Cats in the big plastic tub with the blue lid (I recycle all the tubs, of course!) It clumps really well and I have never had an odor problem in my house. My friends have commented that they cannot even tell I have 1 cat, let alone 4. I once considered changing to a more natural litter, but after reading some reviews of the products I decided to stick with the Tidy Cats.

We use Tidy Cat crystals and it works pretty well.

I have two indoor cats and I use Fresh Step. It clumps well and any odor quickly goes away. The plastic buckets are great to reuse or they can be recycled.

I use Tidy Cat clumping without odor issues and it clumps well too--but maybe you have tried ALL the clumping ones and not had success. Try the Crystals--I found them a bit pricey but VERY effective with our bunny (who tends to be really "stinky" in the urine dept.) and then used it for the cats when I ran out of theirs. I couldn't detect ANY odors at all!

Hello,
I have a multi-cat home and I use Swheat Scoop. It is made of wheat, completely biodegradable, flushable, natural, has no bazaar aroma, comes in a paper bag and costs @ $25.00 for the 40lb bag. I have tried the others and this is the only one I like both because it's environmentally friendly, natural and user friendly.

I am a big fan of Tidy Cat Crystal Blend scooping litter. It controls odors really well (although I do add Arm and Hammer Cat Litter Deodorizer to it), and it clumps REALLY REALLY well. I have tried a lot of brands, but this is the one I always come back to. It does come in a big plastic jug, but it is recyclable. Good luck!

We now currently use arm & hammer multi cat. It clumps well and doesn't leave much smell. We have also tried Fresh step and like it as well. It usually just depends what is on sale for us. Anything plastic is bad for the environment but you should be able to recycle most of it. The cardboard boxes i'm not too sure about.
