Cat owners spend about $165 a year on cat litter, according to Kiplinger — which means they’ll drop nearly $2,500 over the life of their beloved feline.
Picking the best cat litter for your household is tricky. There are so many litter materials out there: clumping clay, non-clumping clay, sand, a variety of starch and fiber pellets, and silica crystals. And there are so many factors to consider: Do you want perfumes or enzymes that mask or neutralize litter odors? How do you want to handle used litter? Is litter dust an issue in your house? Are you buying litter for multiple cats or just one kitty?
Any cat parent knows that the wrong litter can be a big problem. For one thing, cats are particular about their bathrooms, reasonably enough—litter that doesn’t suit your furry friend can lead to accidents and bad litter box behavior. And of course, you want an option that is easy for you to scoop, doesn’t track everywhere in your home, and helps tamp down odors. Here are some of the best options out there, whether you’re looking for something that’s environmentally friendly, have multiple cats, prefer scented or unscented options, and other important factors.
Cleaning the litter box is the most dreaded job of any cat guardian, and without a high-quality cat litter, it’s made all the worse. But what makes the humans happy can be exactly the opposite of what a cat prefers when they need to go. If the texture is wrong or the litter is perfumed, they may even opt to do their business outside of the litter box. Keep in mind, however, that if a cat begins to go outside of the box, they should be checked by a veterinarian to rule out any medical issues.
