I was looking for a new clumping cat litter that had improved odor control & less tracking and less breaking apart regarding the clumps. I started with a clean litter box, all old litter was removed, the box washed out and dried. The whole area of the litter box was cleaned and washed too. End result is the odor control is slightly improved but the clumps still break apart. I thought it would clump harder and tighter. The worse is the tracking. I have one 20 year old cat. She steps in the box lightly, does her business and gingerly exits. She doesn't even cover any waste, so basically she doesn't disturb the litter. She is also small and very short haired. Despite this, the litter seems to stick to her paws and tracks everywhere! This is the litter's worse feature! This is expensive litter and needless to say I am very disappointed. I will not be buying it again. My search continues for a descent cat litter.....Linda H. Island Lake, Illinois
It's been less than a week since I started adding this litter to the remainder of the prior litter I've been using longterm, but so far, my cat is accepting it with no qualms, it has no unpleasant odor, clumps well but not disgustingly firmly that it takes lots of digging to remove it, controls odors very well, and does NOT get tracked all over. The waste removed seems to deplete the litter volume much less than the prior lightweight litter I used. I'm impressed so far!
I usually buy Boxiecat Deep Clean Unscented Clumping Clay Cat Litter which I think is very good. I tried the Boxiecat Air Lightweight Extra Strength Unscented and being lightweight is great but it does not mask the odor nearly as well.
I have always liked boxicat. It's easy to keep clean and lasts a long time as long as you attend to it!
Clumps amazingly well, lightweight so I can lift the bags without straining, almost no dust for real (versus the ones that claim it and barely deliver) and good for the planet. Some people don't like the smell but I do. It has a light, natural, field grass-like smell to me. I find it nice. A bag of this lasts me SO MUCH longer than same-size bags of other litters (of every type of material). I can't recommend it enough.
We switched to the original unscented Boxiecat litter almost a year ago and we love it; so we were excited to try this lightweight version. It’s all the things I hate about cat litter other than it’s not as heavy, and the cats didn’t refuse it like they have with a few others. This, by far, has the worst odor control of ANY other litter we’ve tried. The clumps STICK horribly to the side and bottom of the boxes. Urine turns it into a paste rather than a clump. There is more dust than the original. The amount of tracking is the probably worst I’ve seen.
I really love regular Boxiecat litter so I decided to try this lightweight version. Nope; my house smells like a toilet after only a few days. That said, I have two large Ragdoll cats. This might work on a house with only one small cat, but I don’t recommend it for large cats.
Low odor, clumps great, less tracking throughout the house. It took a few weeks for my male cat to accept (he can smell that its different), but now he uses it & I love it. A lot less mess and less on their paws.
This litter has been a total game changer. I'm not supposed to mention all the competitors by name, but I will say that I've been scooping litter for multiple cats for over 40 years and have tried pretty much everything, and this BLOWS EVERYTHING ELSE AWAY, including its sister clay product by the same maker. Although the gray pro bags of Boxie clump really well, I used to dread scooping the boxes because of the strain on my elbow and hand from sifting through that heavy clay. (I'm a musician, so I'm super careful with my hands.) This litter CLUMPS EVEN BETTER than the pro edition of Boxie, to my utter amazement, but it's LIGHT and EASY TO SIFT through. I'm sure the glow will wear off at some point but, after two weeks of using this, I actually still kind of enjoy scooping my 6 (!!!) litter boxes. If I could include a shrug emoji here, I would. It's just such a pleasure to have it be so freaking easy after years of struggle and to be able to leave my cats with fresh and clean smelling boxes. Some reviewers have commented on the smell. I actually find THE MILD BARLEY SCENT MUCH MORE PLEASANT AND LESS PUNGENT than the clay pro edition. It also seems to me that my cats SPRAY against the litter box walls LESS FREQUENTLY with the barley than they did with the clay - it still happens occasionally but not nearly as often, and that also simplifies box cleaning dramatically. Because the litter clumps so well, it does require a little more effort than the clay edition to detach the clumps from the sides or bottom of the box, but that's a small price to pay for sifting through what really almost feels like air for the rest of the box. You find those clumps super quickly and easily. Oh, and I forgot the whole reason I first bought it - it's super light and easy to carry. Now that just feels like a bonus. After swapping out one box per day for the first three or four days, I swapped out the rest of my boxes, and that was the last time I'll be carrying those heavy loads of clay around. Hallelujah! Could not recommend this litter more highly unless it scooped itself. Have been blabbing to everyone I know about it and waiting all week to have the time to write a proper review at my computer rather than just 5-starring on my phone. Can you imagine?
My. Senior cat and I love this litter. No more sore paws full of Clay
