Not a sexy topic, but I just wanted to share my experience with you because a really good cat litter is a must for me, and well, I went through a lot to find the best, in my opinion! I fostered a kitten and she became pregnant before her appointment to get spayed, I was then fostering 7 cats! That put me in the market for the very best cat litter out there. I was determined to find the most efficient, clean, and organic litter available. I read so many promises about “the best” cat litter, tried them all, and threw a lot away. I had two litter boxes going at the same time which was great because I could try out two brands side by side to see the litter my cats preferred.
I will start with the worst type and that is clay, anything with clay in it is disgusting. Clay does not absorb the urine. The urine goes right through the litter, makes a muddy mess on the bottom, it sticks to their paws and they wipe that s*it everywhere. I don’t know why the clay litter makes their urine so much more powerful but be careful… it will knock your head back! Through research, I discovered clay can not absorb urine.
I also do not like any with a fragrance. Trying to cover up the smell of feces does not work, just scoop the poop!
Now for my reveal! My favorite litter is Sustainably Yours by petfive. It’s sustainable, it’s made from corn and cassava and it is the best clumping litter in the world. It absorbs like nobody’s business, stays dry, and it absorbs the ammonia smell! I am telling you to give this stuff a try. If you do please let me know what you think.
