I have been using this litter for almost a year with my cat. I originally got it because i liked the eco-friendly approach and it clumped well and it was pretty smell proof. My cat has recently started having asthma attacks and I’m trying to eliminate any allergens so unfortunately I’m having to transition out of this litter due to the dust. Just be aware that this litter is good at clumping and containing smell but it does kick up a lot of dust in the box and when cleaning. I know Okocat has paper pellets that say they are dust free so maybe those would be better for humans and cats with asthma
I've been using this litter for years, ever since I came across and have it a try. Really... It's better than any litter I've tried and over 14 yrs, that's been a lot. 1st it's biodegradable, which is a huge plus for me. 2nd really keeps the order away! I have 2 cats and even if I forget to scoop a day or even two, no smell. 3 long lasting. I can go an easy 2 weeks before doing a total replace of litter... Again, no smell and a little goes a long way.
My cat and I are surprisingly please with Okocat. Now, it does still track but there is no dust, which is a good tradeoff in my mind. My cat has upper respiratory issues so we've been experimenting with different litter brands/types. I was very disappointed with the Dr. Elsey products as I had used them for years with my previous kitties; their low dust version is not low dust. Period. Okocat seems to be the solution for my kitty. Smells nice too. And, my Mr. Boy took to it right away so no adjustment issues which is of great relief. No pun intended.
I used Tidy Cat natural (pine,cedar,corn) clumping litter for several years and when it was discontinued a few months ago..I began a search on Chewy for a good replacement...tried a few and I finally found the one:) this is similiar with a bit larger pieces but it clumps, odor control and the ferrets are back to their routine and not tossing all the litter out of the litter boxes because they didn't like the testing replacements.
The cats have been using this litter for about 2 years now. I don't know how they feel but I prefer it to clay because it's not heavy like clay litter and the smell is more natural. Clay litter is either heavily scented( yuk) and if unscented tends to smell quicker than wood clumping. All are dusty and track so it's a matter of what works best for everyone.
Since adopting my cats, I've been trying to find the best litter that works for us. I think this is it! I love how Ökocat doesn't make my house smell like cat litter. It just smells like fresh wood furniture. It tracks a bit, but the pieces are big so it's quite easy to sweep up. Also, I love how the litter doesn't smell bad after over a week of use. Other natural litters tend to smell like a barnyard after a week, even with scooping multiple times a day. Overall, there's less waste, it is easy to clean up, and it's reasonably priced. My only complaint is that I wish it formed tighter clumps.
Used to used the walnut based litter, but had to switch due to my cat developing allergies to that. This was a decent non clay alternative. The original clumping is fairly low in dust. Not 100% dust free, but much better then their soft on paws finer ground litter. And, it's not sharp on paws like the pellets. My cat just won't use pellets.
I have been looking for natural litter, something similar to best cat litter available in Europe, and this totally meets the criteria, natural smell, no added fragrance, very little dusting, the clumping is a bit less impressive than we are used to but it is not burdensome, the cat accepted it without any doubts (I am a fan of the natural wooden smell, my father runs a saw mill and it weirdly reminds me of that place and the cat does not mind at all, win-win). Important: it is in a box with a handle, super practical!
I’ve used this the past few days with my new adoptee. She took to it easily and doesn’t seem to mind. I like that there is no urine smell and it clumps well. This does not work well with sifting litter boxes, because it has large pellets. Will work fine on most robot boxes.
I've tried several other natural-material litters and this one is the best. Less tracking than others, better odor control. The pine scent is preferable to any "scented" litters. It absorbs better and is lighter weight than clay litter. Even my fussy cat is happy with it. The large bag is a bit unwieldy but the light weight makes it managable.
