Best Cat Litter

Choosing the right cat litter for your feline can be difficult. The brands which are the cheapest, most readily available, and effective at neutralizing odors often utilize chemicals to do so. The natural products are often more expensive and have a natural grainy aroma despite their effectiveness for trapping the even more offensive scents left behind by regular feline use. Furthermore, nearly all types of cat litter pose some risk for disease. The feline's normal grooming habits make it susceptible to ingesting the dust or particles. Many inexpensive store bought brands contain non-biodegradable sodium bentonite clay and/or silica gel which can be harmful to a cat's health. Wheat and corn based kitty litters can breed aflotoxin under warm, moist conditions, such as those produced during routine use. However, those with sturdy plumbing could choose a flushable natural cat litter to aid their ability to keep the litter box in tip-top condition and minimize this risk. The cat litters on this list were chosen based on their risk of illness by ingestion, price, and availability.

World's Best Cat Litter Clumping Formula

It seems cliche to call World's Best Cat Litter the best, but in my opinion it is. Their all natural formulations are made from corn grown in the USA, safe for cats over eight weeks old, and contain no synthetic additives, chemicals, clay or perfume. Although the bag costs more than other cat litters, clumps can easily be cleaned out regularly since the formula is flushable. The ease of frequent cleaning can extend the time before a full box change is needed, evening out the cost as compared to the leading brands by making each bag last longer. World's Best Cat Litter is widely available, reasonably priced, safe, and natural - all the qualities a consumer could wish for in their cat litter.

Rachel Hoyt
Since birth, I have been drawn to animals' innocent curiosity and sought to befriend every creature which crosses my path, whether domesticated or wild. I have had pets my entire life (cats, dogs, fish, turtles, and a gerbil) and have sought to learn everything I could about all of my friends' unusual pets (snakes, rabbits, birds, ferrets, salamanders, and more). Lying chest to chest with a purring feline is a therapy I can't live without. Staring at the active yet peaceful flow of a fish tank is one of my favorite ways to clear my head. Talking to birds which stare me down or sing me a song is a childish habit I have no desire to lose. I believe in giving pets a life equally lavish to our own, including a comfortable home, nutritious diet, proper grooming, and a bit of fun.
