Product Review: Litter

Time to be frank. For a cat author pet, litter is important. Not having the right litter can really make a day bad. It can stink up your house, make clean up for your author difficult, and worst of all it can hurt your bean toes. Have to make sure your beans are protected. My author and I have tried dozens of litters (I have tried, my author has bought). This is an independent review and I have not been sponsored by any company.

Clay Litters

I have tried about three dozen. Here are my most and least favourites.

Most Favourite

Nature’s Miracle is my favourite: Low dust, low odor. Feels sturdy and not harsh on the beans. Five cat heads of approval.

Second Runner Up

Arm and Hammer Multi Cat: A little dusty but smells good and feels good on the beans. Four cat heads of approval.

Least Favourite

Grocery store brand: does the job, low cost, very dusty. My brother goes in black and comes out of the box a grey cat. Two cat heads of approval.

Crystal/Silica Litter

You might be wondering why I haven’t tried silica or crystal litter. My author and I don’t feel comfortable trying out such a litter because of some of the things we have heard about silica. However, clay litter does have silica dust and poses a similar risk.

There you have my personal assessment on litters. My preferences may not be yours. Each cat is unique. Hopefully, my review can assist you in finding your perfect litter.

Also a note, don’t flush cat litter, even if it says you can. Waste without litter is fine.
