Best Rated Cat Litter


When is comes to cat litter, there’s a bunch of things to consider before choosing. Poor quality litters can cause your little fluff ball discomfort, and on top of that, some cats are overly sensitive to certain litter smells. Here we’ve sifted through all the top litter brands for you…

Editors Choice:

Dr. Elsey’s Ultra is one of the top quality products when it comes to effectiveness and is one of the best clumping clay litters you can get your hands on. But for those looking for a more natural and biodegradable litter we would go with World’s Best or Feline Pine.

Dr. Elsey’s Ultra

Dr. Elsey’s provides a dust free, unscented litter that clumps nicely together to make clean up easy and hassle free – just as it should be. Heavy granules ensure that there’s little mess when your kitty leaves the litter box and being hypoallergenic, means that even the fussiest of cats shouldn’t have an issue with it. It does a great job of eliminating odors, as the medium-weight clay traps particles inside, making it perfect for those in small apartments – no wonder it’s one of the top-rated litter brands on Amazon!

Arm & Hammer Clump & Seal Multi-Cat Litter

For those who love to be surrounded by many, many furry friends, the struggle is real when it comes to keeping a litter box immaculate. In an idea world we’d have one litter-box per cat, but that gets expensive and they end up sharing in any case most the time! This litter brand forms hard clumps to make clean up easy peasy and drastically reduces odors due to its strong “clean” smell – which you either love or hate, though we think it’s far better than smelling kitty poop, making it purrrfect for multi-cat homes. There’s even a 7-day odor-free guarantee!

Extra Strength Lavender

For those who hate the smell of cat faeces and not only want to cover it, but totally mask the smell – then extra strength lavender is perfect, especially for those who are out of the house for many hours at a time. This is one of the best scented litter formulas around and while some people really dislike the smell of perfumed litters, others long for it. The litter itself is made with smaller granules so a little tracking is to be expected, but the lavender smell will make your litter room smell like it’s ready to blossom.

Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Cat Litter

For the environmental enthusiasts among us, this natural cat litter is safe for both the environment and your cat if accidently ingested. Made entirely from walnut shells, it’s totally biodegradable and can absorb up to three times as much liquid as clay litters, clumping and providing an easy clean-up – what more could you want? The only downer is that slightly more dust is produced than most brands, but that’s a small price to pay for an odor-reducing litter that is perfect for even the fussiest of cats.

Feline Pine Original Litter

We really like Feline Pine for its non-chemical approach to litter, made entirely of natural pine, making it great for cats and even people that have allergies to dust. The non-toxic formula doesn’t use any kind of dangerous chemicals or silica dust making it far better for your cat if ingested. The non-clumping litter has a high absorbency rate meaning urine is captured and neutralized before it starts to smell, leaving a nice fresh smell in its place.

Nature’s Miracle Just for Cats Easy Care Crystal Litter

Crystal litter, composed of little pieces of silica gel makes for a great cat litter due to its high water-absorbing properties. When the dust free product comes into contact with urine, it releases a nice fragrance as it locks in the ammonia into the silica granules. A great benefit of crystal litter is anti-tracking and doesn’t get caught in fur, making it great for those with long-hair cats. One the downside it’s not the best for the environment and can cause some sensitive cats to have irritated paws though this shouldn’t be an issue with long hair cats.

World’s Best Cat Litter Quick Cat Clumping Formula

If any company has a right to brag it’s the ‘world’s best cat litter’, it’s this one. The whole-kernel corn formula is fully compostable and drastically reduces the clean up effort involved. The forest, woody scent replaces any smelly odors bringing memories of the forest into your home and is 99% dust-free! This is both a biodegradable, flushable and clumping litter (it’s often difficult to find a litter with this kind of epic combination), meaning it clumps when in contact with urine making for an easy clean up.

Tidy Cats 24/7 Performance

Tidy Cats is a well recognized cat litter brand with a colossal list of products on offer – so they must be doing something right. The 24/7 Performance variety is one of our favorites, with big clumps that harden quickly (and stay that way) making it stand out from the pack, making for minimal effort clean up. The triple odor formula drastically reduces the smell of urine and feces and despite being a clay product, it is 99.6% dust free. Our only complaints are to do with the minor amount of tracking.

Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract

We’ve all been there, we’ve just bought the ‘best litter’ around and it wasn’t cheap, only for your finicky cat to turn their nose up at it. Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract could be the solution for cats that are reluctant to step foot in their litter box. The herb scented (totally natural) clumping litter, encourages cats who tend to pee around their box and not inside, making it the perfect litter to train cats with. Boxes come with a ‘Litter Box Solutions Booklet’ which we thought was a nice added touch.

SmartCat All Natural Clumping Litter

This is one clever litter! SmartCat Litter is both lightweight (made of grass) and has a strong performance. Upon immediate contact with urine it begins to clump and form a near unbreakable ball – trapping all the odor inside. You could literally throw the thing at a wall and it wouldn’t break! The litter is almost totally dust free and totally biodegradable.
