I have been using Dr. Elsey’s cat litter, which I’ve written about here. Unfortunately, in the past few months it has begun giving my fiancé headaches at night and I was starting to get them too when scooping.
I decided it was time to try an alternative to clay cat litter. This was a daunting task because I had zero experience with non-clay litters. I read reviews online but most litters are loved and hated, depending on which review you read. As with many other products happiness with the quality is going to be personal and based on specific needs. I choose a highly advertised brand, World’s Best Cat Litter, to try first. I bought the Multiple Cat Clumping formula.
World’s Best Cat Litter is made of corn and I was somewhat worried that it would be harsh on cat paws, but the corn pieces are smooth.
Flushable and bio-degradable
Super lightweight! A large sized bag is very light weight and this also makes scooping a lot easier. This would be a big benefit for cat owners who are unable to lift heavy bags or experience pain that makes scooping clay litter difficult (clay is heavy!)
Strong clumping, clumps don’t break apart or stick to the litter box
The initial smell of the unused litter smells like farm animals to me. Personally, I found the smell to be very unpleasant.
After 2 weeks of use the smell emanating from the litter box was totally unbearable. It smelled strongly of corn and urine, which is not a good combination. I can’t afford to completely switch the litter every two weeks or less, so this was a real deal breaker for me.
World’s Best Cat Litter might work for families that are able to keep the litter box in a basement. But for those living in smaller quarters such as an apartment, or simply do not have a basement, this litter is not a good option because it has sub-par odor control. Despite the name, this cat litter is not the World’s Best for all families!
