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.
  • It also has the added benefit of being biodegradable. Okocat is naturally lightweight and comes in a smart compostable package with an easy carry handle and pour spout.

  • When it’s time to clean the box entirely, continue to fill with more ökocat and less of the old litter until your cat has adjusted to the change.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Disappointed- tracks EVERYWHERE and barely clumps

    By on

    Oh man, I really wanted to like this litter, I read the reviews and it seemed right up my street. However, this stuff tracks insanely badly, large wooden pieces that look sort of like granola. And the clumps barely hold together, so as soon as I shake the poop scooper, it disintegrates, leaving pee pieces back in the litter (and defeating the purpose) Yes, it does smell nice, and it does pretty well on odour control, but that's its only upside.

  • This is the best!

    By on

    We have tried so many litters over the years. Sick of the clay and corn dust all over everything. Decided to give this a go. Great stuff, minimal dust - mainly just when pouring into the pan. We went slow at first, mixing with the clay litter, then switched out one pan using just Okocat, which is now getting the most use. Ru seems to really like it! We also purchased the catit-litter-scoop - works great with the litter.

    Am I the only one who HATES this cat litter??? #1 reason: this litter gets tracked all over my house. We keep litter box in the laundry room...every single time I walk in the house, it is all over the floors, then the next room is the office - all over that floor..then right on it to the kitchen. No one has this problem? I spent $20 on a mat to put outside litter box..that didn't help. Ughhhhh...so disappointed.

  • Okocat Cat Litter

    I've used Fresh Step forever it seems. My cats are 9 and 10 yrs. old and they're indoor cats. I tried this Okocat Litter wondering if the cats wouldn't like it or stop using the kitty litter box, but I mixed this with some Fresh Step and the cats don't seem to mind the change. I'll definitely start using only this kind of cat litter from now on. There is no messy smell or dust. The litter doesn't go through the plastic scoop when cleaning, but one of these days I may just melt some of the slots in the spoon to make them a little bigger. Maybe not though. hmmm. You get a ton of litter with this box. The box it was shipped in had litter that came out of the box, not much, but some, so I've used Fresh Step forever it seems.

    Having a multi-cat household you can imagine that we go through some litter. We've used a variety of brand and styles so we're pretty familiar with what work and what doesn't work for our cats. The Okocat Natural Wood Clumping Cat Litter was surprisingly a hit in our house and I was surprised that it actually clumped. I wasn't too sure how well it would work for our cats because when you hear of wood, clumping just doesn't come to mind. One thing I really like about this one compared to standard litter is that it doesn't have an overflow of dust. In fact, it's little to no dust. Also, it's fragrance-free, so it's good for cats who may have allergies. I, personally, like the fragranced stuff because Having a multi-cat household you can imagine that we go through some litter.

I am definitely impressed with how great the odor control is and the cats seem pleased. We keep various litters in the various boxes to appeal to all the cats (I know, they're spoiled), but this one was definitely a winner! … more

  • Not Dusty like others

    this litter is not as dusty as others. it clumps just like Swheatscoop. It does however track more even with my sticky mat. female cat used it after 2 days. When i went to take out of Chewy box there was about a pound inside loose; must have been a hole made during packing. stuff happens. it is cheaper through Chewy.

  • Clumps well

    By on

    The cat wasn't sure at first about the litter change, but he has now decided it's just fine. We like that because the pieces are bigger they don't track dust everywhere like other natural litters and the extras he shakes off his paws stay right near the litterbox. It clumps really well - and stays together when picked up with a scoop. The lower stars reflect that when I received the order and picked up the box of litter, it started to open at both the top and bottom and I had litter pouring out. So beware and pick up by the sides and not the handle.

  • Decreased Odor

    Bought this to try to not use clay litter. Trying to help the environment. Works great in a scoop litter box. Does not work in a Litter Robot. Easy to scoop, less tracking out of the box. My cats had no adjustment time just stepped right in. Good product, will continue to use.
