Keep contents and packaging out of reach of children and pets. Seek medical help in case of accidental ingestion.

Next Gen suggests using 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches depth of litter in your litter box. To dispose of the Next Gen cat litter clumps you can simply flush them (a few clumps at a time) down the toilet or dispose of them in the trash.

One bag of Next Gen cat litter will last one cat for 4 to 6 weeks with routine litter box maintenance.

Additional Instructions

  • Do not bury or dispose of outdoors, in gutters or storm drains to avoid environmental contamination.
  • Not for internal use. Not meant for use as compost or as a traction aid.
  • Store in a cool, dry place. Product filled by weight; some settling may occur.
Transition Instructions

Some of our customers have switched their cats successfully at one time without any problem, however we realize that cats are individuals and have their preferences. In case your cat is confused by the sudden change in litters, we suggest transitioning the litter box gradually:

Week 1: 75% of your current litter and 25% of Next Gen’s Litter

Week 2: 50% of your current litter and 50% of Next Gen’s litter

Week 3: 25% of your current litter and 75% of Next Gen’s litter

Week 4: 100% Next Gen’s litter


Do you test on animals?

Yes and no. Yes we do “test” our product on animals, but no we do not subject them to any cruelty.The testing we perform for our litters is in relation to preference, clumping, weight, etc. so our “testers” are only using our products as they are intended to be used. Fortunately, the ingredients of our products are all naturally occurring and have a longstanding presence in human and feline history. We felt we had enough precedent to rely upon when it came to unintended uses and therefore opted not to rub cat litter in anyone’s eyes just to see what happens.

Why are Next Gen litters sold by volume instead of by weight?

Our proprietary manufacturing process makes Next Gen’s litters very lightweight and absorbent while at the same time very BIG on performance! One 10L bag weighs approximately 6 pounds, and is equivalent in effectiveness to multiple bags of competing litters. If we packaged Next Gen litter by weight, a 20 pound bag of Next Gen litter would be about 3.3 times the size of our current 10 liter bag.

Is your litter low in dust?

Next Gen litters are extremely low-dust litters. Cat owners facing feline asthma or allergy issues prefer Next Gen litters for this reason.

What kind of wood is used in Next Gen litters?

Next Gen litters are manufactured using recycled industrial wood scrap. The scraps are primarily kiln dried cedar and cypress woods. Next Gen does not use raw timber in the manufacturing of our products.

Is your litter environmentally safe?

All of Next Gen’s litters are made with all natural ingredients like wood and green tea. Next Gen litters are safe for the environment and can actually be disposed of in the garden as mulch.

Is there any impact to Next Gen product from the recent natural disaster in Japan on Next Gen Products?

Some of our loyal customers have expressed concern about radiation contamination in our products from Japan. Let me assure you that our factory and all of the ingredients used in our products are FREE of radiation contamination. Our factory is located 250 miles from the affected nuclear power plant, and the ingredients in our products are imported from outside sources. The USA Customs & Border Protection agency is also inspecting all containers arriving from Japan – and they have found no problem in any product from Japan.

    Really bad

    By Niki on May 23, 2021

    I had high hopes for this litter but it is truly terrible. Clumps disintegrate as soon as you scoop. It just turns to mush. Does not control smell.

    The worst litter I've ever used

    By Clem on Jan 22, 2021

    Where to start? It barely clumps, and what does falls apart the second you try to separate it from the dry. I have to completely empty the whole pan after a few days, so not only is this product awful, it's just a waste of money.

    great for an extra cat box

    By Sari4 on Sep 12, 2019

    I have 2 beautiful calicos. They each have their own ? litter boxes in the bathroom. I do use another brand of litter in those for daily use. Upstairs in my bedroom I have another litter box for “ just in case”. This is where I use this litter...occasionally, one or both of them use this box. It is amazing. Absorbent, easy scooping, no odor, minimal tracking, and above all it lasts quite awhile. It is pricey for everyday usage but for an emergency litter or even post op where you want to use something natural, I highly recommend it. If u don’t mind the price and want the ultimate best natural litter, this is it.

    not effective or economical

    By owls on Jun 6, 2017

    This litter turns into sticky mush instead of clumps and it tracks everywhere! The box area looked disgusting despite cleaning it daily. It is also pricey - the bag is small and the product doesn't last long.

    Excellent but expensive.

    By Chouchou22 on Feb 20, 2017

    It smells good and clumps well. The particles are a bit large to fit through my scoop. I have to shake really hard, but that's OK. The cats avoided it at first, probably just because it was different, but they adjusted to it quickly. There's no dust to inhale, which is really nice. I wish it weren't so expensive.
