Cat Litter

For the best cat litter look no further than Chewy. Whether you have a cat, or just seen one on TV, you might not be aware of what cat litter actually is. You might be surprised to learn that there are different types of cat litter. There’s clumping cat litter, clay cat litter, unscented cat litter and biodegradable cat litter. The best cat litter for your cuddly kitty depends upon your expectations. Clay cat litter is the oldest type of commercial cat litter, and still widely sold. Clay is a popular cat litter substance because of its ability to absorb liquid. It’s also great for controlling odor, because it separates urine. Unfortunately, once clay cat litter becomes soiled, it can no longer absorb liquid which can lead to an odor problem. For this reason, it’s important to change cat litter at least once a week. Clumping cat litter, is clay cat litter that contains bentonite which allows the litter to clump when wet. This makes disposing of soiled litter easy, and prevents you from having to refill the entire litter box each time the litter becomes wet. This makes clumping cat litter more cost efficient as well. Silica cat litter is crystallized cat litters formed from silica gel. The gel is absorbent, and provides odor control, which makes it the best cat litter for controlling odor—especially if you are away from home and won’t be available to make frequent changes. Biodegradable cat litter is a safe option, and it’s environmentally friendly. Biodegradable cat litters can be made from recycled paper products or plant-derived materials like pine, wheat, corn, beet pup and soybeans.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cat Litter

What's the best cat litter?

The best cat litter will be the one that makes your cat use the litter box consistently. A good cat litter should also control odor and make keeping the litter box clean convenient and easy. Many people prefer clumping or scoopable cat litter so they can remove solid and liquid waste from the box every day. Non-clumping, dust-free, or fragrance-free litter may be better for cats or people with allergies, and paper pellet litter is often recommended for young kittens. You can also find a variety of sustainable and natural litters made from corn, wheat, wood and more.

How often should I change my cat's litter?

Change your cat’s litter once a week or every other week. The ideal frequency will depend on how many cats you have, what type of litter you use, and how often you scoop the box. You should try to scoop the box every day and refill it with fresh litter to keep the litter level consistent. Be sure to clean the litter box thoroughly with soap and water when you change out the litter.

Is cat litter flushable?

Some cat litter is flushable, but many types are not. Clay and other highly absorbent litters can clog pipes and cause serious plumbing issues, so be sure to read the container and make sure any litter you are flushing is indeed flushable. There are many great flushable cat litters you can buy for your cat, and many are biodegradable and eco-friendly, as well.

Is cat litter biodegradable?

Clay cat litter is not biodegradable, but there are many litter options that are. Most plant-based litters, including those made of grass, corn, wheat, paper and pine, will biodegrade naturally after disposal. Many of these are also sustainably sourced, making them an even more eco-friendly choice.
