Description

Okocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter is made from reclaimed timbers and lumber materials. Okocat is an eco friendly way to take care of your cat's litter needs. It absorbs 500% its weight in moisture. Unlike powdery clay dust that can have chemicals, additives, and synthetic scents that are harmful to cats, Okocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter is free of additives and chemicals. With little-to-no dust, those with allergies in your home will breathe easy.

The natural plant fibers in Okocat bind and trap liquids and odors so they can't escape. This litter is naturally antibacterial and biodegradable. Lightweight box with handle and pour spout are easy to carry and store.

Key Benefits

  • Okocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter offers the best performance in the natural litter class.
  • Made to control odors for up to 7 days with its patented Odor Shield Technology. Okocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives,
  • Its specially formulated pellets are firm on the outside and soft on the inside. It is fortified with long lasting odor control technology and has been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X its weight in liquid.
  • Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.

  • When your cat is used to the new litter dispose of your old litter appropriately, or donate it to a local shelter.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does öko mean?

It's german for "eco" or ecological, meaning green or organic. ökocat litter is made from 100% reclaimed wood. It really is nature's gift to you and your cats. Go green, go öko!

How is ökocat different?

ökocat is made of reclaimed wood; it’s lighter and more absorbent than traditional litters and it’s easy on the planet. What’s not to love?

Why is our litter made from wood?

Our cat litter is made from reclaimed wood which is naturally lightweight, naturally absorbent, naturally odor-controlling, biodegradable and sustainable. Over the years, cat litter has been made from ashes, sand, newspaper and even food-grade materials. None of these materials have the range of features that natural wood offers.

What types of wood are used in our natural cat litter?

ökocat litter is a blend of spruce, fir and pine. Our fiber suppliers comply with policies of the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Imitative or the Forestry Preservation and Forestry Promotion Act.

How does our natural cat litter absorb so well?

Tree fiber has a natural capillary system within it that absorbs moisture and holds it within the fiber wall, thanks to Mother Nature. Our unique processing methods build on that natural ability.

Why is absorption so important in our natural cat litter?

Wood cat litter is naturally super absorbent and fast absorption in natural litter ensures your cat isn't standing in urine while relieving himself. It also helps to pull the urine down into the bottom of the tray. Rather than pool at the top. High absorption rates ensure that minimal litter is being wetted, so you use less, and scoop less so you save money. It also makes the cat box easier to clean and less frequently is needed due to the limited moisture and doesn't allow the litter to cake to the bottom. And absorption rates help with odor control by quickly absorbing the mess and encapsulating and trapping the odor inside. Ta da!

How does it fight odors?

The natural capillary structure of wood helps protect trees in their natural environment. That same structure works to repress odors in our cat litters. Because of wood’s incredible natural absorbency, urine doesn’t collect at the bottom of the litter tray, creating all kinds of unpleasant odors and unhygienic conditions.

Are there harmful chemicals used in the processing of your cat litter?

No. Any of the additives in our products are those typically found in the production of common household products such as tissue paper and/or products for human consumption.

How much lighter is natural wood litter than clay?

ökocat weighs 50% to 60% less than clay litters. For example, you would only have to carry 7 pounds of ökocat for the equivalent of 20 pounds of clay.

What makes the clumping litters clump?

We add a proprietary recipe of ingredients derived from natural materials that are listed by the FDA as GRAS (generally accepted as safe) human-grade ingredients. We achieve superior performance through the unique selection and application of these ingredients.

Why is clumping important for cat litter?

Clumping cat litters immediately react with moisture. Cat urine is encapsulated and begins to harden on contact, trapping the liquid and the odor within. The urine does not soak to the bottom of the box and sit there stinking up the room and attaching to the bottom of the box. The clump is easily removed, you waste less litter, don't have to scrape the bottom of the box and your cat stays clean and dry. The clumping litter also attaches to the moisture in feces. Though it does not clump as solid as a urine clump, it is still incredibly beneficial.

Why doesn't everyone use CLUMPING litters then?

Some people don’t know the benefits. Some prefer non-clumping litters because they use automatic litter boxes, or the type that have screens or use rakes to clean the box and some are concerned about the ingredients used to clump. The clumping ingredients used in ours are those typically found in in the production of common household products such as tissue paper. What scoop is best to use with the larger pellet litters?

There are several scoops with large slots specially designed for use with pellets available at retail. We are hoping to have our own specially designed okocat scoop available soon!

Does ökocat litter works in litter robot or other clumping litter machines?

We recommend either the Wood Clumping which is a cracked pellet or the super soft wood clumping litter which is grounded into fine granules much like clay litter. Both should work in your litter machine. If you would like an example of the actual size of the litters there are high quality pictures of granule size on the individual product pages.

What are the issues with cat litters made from wheat, corn, grains, tea or other food types?

Because these products are made from food product, they will degrade and rot like food. Unlike wood products, and the odor is noticeable as they degrade. Ugh! They can also vary in price due to cost trends of the commodities they are made from. What are the benefits of our paper cat litter?

Our paper litter is 70% lighter than clay, but just as absorbent, making it a great choice for someone who doesn't wish to haul or store a heavy bag of litter. It is also an excellent choice for homes with cats, adults or children that are either respiratory sensitive, allergic or asthmatic. It is also highly recommended by veterinarians for post-surgery use due to its clean nature. Where does the paper come from in ökocat Dust Free litter?

Paper is produced by pressing together moist fibers, typically cellulose pulp derived from trees. Rather than using recycled newspaper that contains inks and dyes like some other paper litters, our paper is produced from natural wood fibers in our own processing facilities specifically designed to make paper cat litter. These wood fibers are washed and screened via a proprietary process. This process melds the fibers together to produce a finished pellet that is then dried and screened to very specific specifications and packed on dedicated packaging lines.

Why is the Dust Free litter made from paper?

Paper comes from trees, trees come from nature; it’s a sustainable resource with many benefits. As well, our paper litter offers several benefits to both cats and consumers that stand apart from other litters. Our clean, ink and dye free paper litter is the lightest litter option, it has natural absorbency and is 99.9% dust free.

Why is there dust in the “Dust Free” cat litter?

Unlike, many natural cat litters, we screen our wood litter to remove 99.9% of all dust prior to putting it into a package. A small amount of dust may remain on the surface of each pellet. Some movement takes place during shipping, handling in warehouses and on store shelves, which we do not have control over.

Can I compost used natural cat litter?

The kitty litter itself is completely biodegradable. However, we do 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 make the compost safe for use in vegetable gardens.

Can you or can't you flush the natural cat litter?

Yes, our natural wood kitty litters are flushable and have been certified by SGS in accordance with ANSI standards (ASME A112.19.6. (JRS)) 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 for protection of the sea lion population, since cat feces can harm sea lions.

Why is there a PROP 65 Warning on the packaging of your cat litters?

We realize the requirement posed (only) by the state of California sounds scary. It needn’t be. The warning pertains to “wood dust.” Along with beach sand, wood dust was added to a list of more than 900 substances ruled harmful when overexposure occurs in the workplace, or even by a consumer. According to the law, all wood- and silica-based cat litters should state the Prop 65 warning to be compliant, though many do not.

There are several innocuous substances on the California list that with typical use, do not risk human or pet health (e.g. traditional clay cat litters are also required to carry the warning for silica or “sand,”). However, it’s our responsibility to label our products as required by law. Being a small company and to keep retail costs down, we chose to print only one packaging version, rather than incurring the cost of a “California only “ version.

Are any animals used in the testing of your products?

We do not use animals in the testing of any of our products. All our products do go through rigorous quality assurance procedures and third party laboratory testing and adhere to established safety guidelines mandated by regulatory and animal welfare agencies. Our products are made from substances that have a long history of safety for both the humans and animals, and are found in everyday products from both the food and cosmetics industries.

Is your product still safe for birds?

The best bird bedding is actually our ökocat Dust Free cat litter.

Where are your products made?

Currently, our two clumping products are currently made in Germany and have been sold there as Europe's number one natural litter for more than 15 years under the name of CAT’S BEST. We plan to make them in the USA in the near future. Our paper and non-clumping pine products are manufactured in Jesup, GA and Ferndale, WA.

    I do like this liter to an extent, but it does track a lot and the pee soaked wood is all mushy and sometimes gets tracked out of the litter box. It gets stuck bad to the litter box also, I do like how it barely has any dust or odor though. It sucks that any litter I find I have an issue with, like the crystal made litter I got was amazing untill I realized how much dust went everywhere and all through my house when I was changing out the litter. It was so much easier of a clean up when you only have to worry about scooping up the poop. Not to mention that really big crystals really helped limit the tracking, it was great but all the dust was not.

  • Tracking is terrible

    By on

    I have 3 cats, 2 are polydactyl who seem agreeable to all litter as long as it is scooped and one who after 4 years has decided that he has preferences and displays this by peeing next to his litter box. Consequently I have been trying several different litters to find one that he likes and I like. My only complaint with this litter is that it tracks everywhere. I am not talking about a little - everywhere. Now perhaps the twins with the big paws are at fault I can't say, otherwise it performed great, clumps are good, odor control is good, weight of package reasonable and mr fussy seemed to like it, but nix this one for me because of the amount of tracking.

  • Love this litter

    I have tried many cat litters with the same results, bad litter odor, tracking and dust. I have three cats using two large litter boxes. I have to say, okocat is the best! The cats have been using it for about two years. I have tried four of the five types of okocat (I don't have a long hair cat). I like the "blue" label clumping litter the best. I did have to buy a large hole scoop. It clumps very well and holds up to liquid. When cleaning the box, the clumps fall apart in the toilet for easy flushing. Like another reviewer stated, I can't remember the last time I dumped and scrubbed a litter box. This stuff absorbs so well, there is no residue left in the bottom of the pan.

As far as tracking, this is where I like the "blue" labeled box best. The finer the litter, such as is labeled for seniors and kittens, does seem to track more that the coarse litter. All three cats are seniors and they seem to like the coarse the same as the fine. I have rugs under both pans and the litter easily shakes out. I would highly recommend this litter, especially for someone with dust allergies and a sensitive nose. And as far as the cost, to me it is well worth it. A large box lasts over a month for three cats and two litter boxes. … more

  • Larger coarse litter

    By on

    I bought this, thinking it was the fine litter, but it works just as well, and maybe tracks less. I'm never going back to clay litter now that I've used flushable. Way better for the environment too. Check the photos to compare the litters. I hate the pellets, and the other clumping works great, but the cats track it pretty easily. This seems to be in the middle.

  • Works Very Well

    By on

    After using clay litter for 50+ yrs., I recently switched to Okocat. It's nice not to have a perpetual layer of fine clay dust everywhere. Disposing of it in weekly trash collection makes it at least 25% lighter to haul to the street. I have two large litter boxes for 4 cats. 18 lbs. lasted one month. The only odor is a light wood fragrance. It may be pricier than clay, but it lasts longer. So, in the long run it's cheaper. (I gradually started the change over by adding it to the clay)

    I'm not sure how this works, but this litter literally makes round 'pee balls' the way it clumps..which is fantastic...ive tried a few different litters before like worlds best litter (corn based) and clay litters...Oko is 100% superior to the corn litter in clumping and freshness...the corn has an off putting smell when mixed with pee/poo...the dust factor is about the same compared with Oko...but i rather my cat breathe natural wood fibers than corn fibers which are a known allergen to cats....with that said, the wood fibers of 'Oko' are not assertive in their smell (which is a good thing) but just have a subtle fresh woody smell....1 star off for the claim that it's basically dust free...it's I'm not sure how this works, but this litter literally makes round 'pee balls' the way it clumps..which is fantastic...ive tried a few different litters before like worlds best litter (corn based) and clay litters...Oko is 100% superior to the corn litter in clumping and freshness...the corn has an off putting smell when mixed with pee/poo...the dust factor is about the same compared with Oko...but i rather my cat breathe natural wood fibers than corn fibers which are a known allergen to cats....with that said, the wood fibers of 'Oko' are not assertive in their smell (which is a good thing) but just have a subtle fresh woody smell....1 star off for the claim that it's basically dust free...it's not...it's the same dust level as clay litter, and probably the corn...in truth...i don't know of any truly dust free litters..again it comes down to what you feel is best for your cat to breathe.. … more

  • NOT for this household

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    The one thing this has going for it, is environmental friendliness. I have an automatic cat litter box, this is a very light litter and it pretty much scooped some over the edge when it cleaned, my very messy cat also scattered it throughout the house from his paws. Also if there is any kind of odor control you can't tell. I ended up putting it around the flowers in my flower bed.

  • Best cat litter ever!

    I am so happy to find a super-strong clumping, eco-friendly, non-clay cat litter that doesn't fill the house with perfume. I only scoop. I have not emptied the cat litter since I discovered Okocat a couple of months ago. I have never smelled ammonia from the Okocat litter even after days of not scooping with 2 cats. It's absolutely AMAZING!! Everyone must try it.

  • Best Litter Ever!

    In a quest to find a healthier litter for my cat, I've tried all the popular alternatives to clay clumping litter, including but not limited to walnut, pine pellets, paper, and corn. None seemed to replicate the clumping properties of clay or the odor control (though I detest the smell of traditional cat litter). Long story short, Okocat is a GAME CHANGER! It clumps perfectly, there's no dust, and the smell is odorless without comprising on controlling cat excrement odor. And it's so much healthier for cats and for the environment than clay. The only negative is that it does take a bit longer to scoop out, as it doesn't flow as freely through the scoop.

  • Not a favorite here

    By on

    By the cat's standards... they will use it, but very infrequently. They favor their Dr. Elsey's over this. Took forever to get through one box just because how often they use it compared to the other. It clumps nicely though. It is hard to sift... perhaps a scooper with larger slots would work best for the litter. My dog loves the stuff.... to eat and it is always a pain keeping him away from munching on it and spilling it on my carpet. He won't touch the other litter thank goodness.
