  • How often should this litter be completely switched out? As box completely emptied and completely new litter put in.

    I have two cats, scoop twice a day, and change it when it starts to smell, usually after about a month.

  • Did Okocat recently change their formula? I'm used to it looking like tan color, but the last box I ordered, the litter was an orange color and was slightly smaller in texture.

    Okocat has been produced in Germany in the past, however recently they have built a domestic cat litter manufacturing plant at their Jesup, Georgia facility to produce the same litter. With the species of wood raw material being different in Germany versus Georgia, there are minor variabilities in c...more olor, scent, and appearance. The product specifications and performance attributes remain the same. Their domestic litter is made from local sustainably sourced Georgia softwoods – which include spruce, pine, and fir.

    The claim below saying "The product specifications and performance attributes remain the same" with this change to the litter is false. It is incredibly dusty now, does not retain odor whatsoever and tracks out of the box in a massive amounts. This product was fantastic prior to the change. I hope t...more hey go back to the way it used to be made because the new formula is not suitable for an indoor cat litter box.

    I agree with the previous review. The litter made in Georgia is not at all the same when it comes to odor control! I could avoid replacing the litter made in Germany for a month or more as long as I scooped. This new dark litter isn't even controlling the odor for over a week! Terrible change and...more I am so very upset about this. I LOVED the Germany litter. It was the best. Why do these companies have to ruin a good thing???

    I’m so disappointed. The last two boxes I purchased are completely different than the usual. Its very dark brown and definitely not working as well in the odor department. Super bummed. I’ve been using for years and now not so happy.

  • Is this septic safe ?

    The litter is 100% biodegradable and flushable. If you intend to flush your cat's waste, scoop carefully and avoid putting extra, loose litter into your toilet.

  • Is this product soft on paws? I saw the box labeled as soft but it is way more expensive

    The Okocat Natural Wood Clumping Cat Litter does have soft ground pellets that forms firm clumps. The Okocat Soft Step Natural Wood Clumping Cat Litter is a finer texture for seniors and kittens.

    This product is extremely soft on paws and does everything that the product description states. It absorbs odors so well - I have a 500 sq. ft. condo (very small) and people tell me that they can't smell any litter box odor. You never need to dump the litter box out completely and start fresh. All y...more ou do is keep adding to it. So in the long run I find it is very economical.

    My boys prefer the fine grain version, this one is a bit too chunky. It's like crushed feline pine pellets

    Oko at makes a featherweight litter that is very fine and perfect for declawed cats who have sensitive paws. Unfortunately Chewy does not carry this particular product.

  • How is Okocat for disposal in the garden / compost? I am on a septic tank and have a renal cat, so go thru lots o' litter!

    The kitty litter itself is completely biodegradable. However, the manufacturer does not recommend putting used litter feces clumps in your compost bin. If you choose to compost, do not use in vegetable gardens, or be sure to let it set for six months so as to follow the USDA protocol in order to mak...more e the compost safe for use in vegetable gardens.

    Just keep a separate compost bin for the kitty litter. It's actually handy to have a compost bin for things you don't want in your vegetable garden compost, like seedy or toxic weeds. You can use a regular bin and spread it under non-food shrubs when composted, or I've used the hole in the ground ...more method, where you just top it with soil when filled. A trash can with the bottom cut off works well for that, and gives you a lid.

  • Has anyone ever mixed this with clay litter and if so, how does it work?

    You should mix litters when transitioning your cat from the old one to the new one. When your cat is used to the new litter dispose of your old litter appropriately.

    worked fine for me

    By nicki on May 10, 2018 Report

    I mixed it with Slide and it works great. But they just increased the price by about $4, so don't know if I'll continue using it. Maybe sawmills are closed, too. I'll keep checking. I really like the smell of wood and that's all I smell in the boxes I'm mixing this(I've only mixed it in 2 boxes)...a...more nd it's so much easier to clean up off the floor. Slide is like sand..this is so nice.

    I mix. Love longhaired litter but clumps aren’t firm. Parts fall into the box. I had some grass seed litter left and put a very thin amount at the bottom of boxes. Then added long haired pellets. Clumps are better. Does increase scattered pieces more then just pellet litter. I may try Okoca...more t wood clumping at the bottom when grass seeds are gone. Will see. Do think mixing is worth a try although this version is layering and not mixing. BTW, I tip the box to reveal the clump in order to keep clump from breaking.

    I put the Okocat on the bottom and non-clumping Tidy Cat on top. They end up mixing it when they scratch. I like it.

  • I have used two sizes of okocat. One is fine and the ohter is courser. Which one comes in the red box and which in the blue box?

    The Blue box is the Natural Wood Clumping Cat Litter, the pinkish purple is the Super Soft Clumping Wood Cat Litter and the orange is Natural Wood Pine Cat Litter. The litter doesn't come up in a red box.

  • Can this litter be used in an automatic litter box?

    This litter is compatible with automatic scooping litter boxes that require clumping litter.   

    By on Jan 28, 2020 Report

    This litter does not work with the litter robot. The original has a wood pellet size that clogs the litter mesh, preventing the litter from passing through it and dumping the litter to waste.

  • Is it flushable? And does it contain pine wood

    Okocat natural wood kitty litters are flushable and have been certified by SGS in accordance with ANSI standards. However, local limitations should be considered and flushing is not recommended if on a septic system. As well, the state of California has a referendum against flushing cat litter. Okoc...more at litter is a blend of spruce, fir and pine
