You may think that buying cat litter is not a daunting task by any degree of difficulty, but in reality, there are quite a few things to consider when making such a purchase. Of course, maybe your cat won’t really complain about the quality of the litter but some discomfort is always to be expected when dealing with sub-par cat litter.
Depending on what type of cat litter your cat enjoys the most, you have three main categories to choose from – clay, silica, and biodegradable litter. This being said, you should always pay attention to the manufacturer and to the substances used in their making. To help you through, we put together a list of the ten best cat litters money can buy.
10Feline Pine Original Litter
This particular litter is formulated to neutralize strong odors on contact, leaving a fresh smell behind. At the same time, it is highly absorbent by nature, mainly due to its capacity to bind ammonia particles directly before they have a chance to give out a distinct smell. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this litter doesn’t use any sort of chemicals or silica dust, which makes it easier to look after.
9Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Clumping Litter
Thanks to its unscented formula, this cat litter won’t cause the room to smell in that distinctive chemical smell that some litters have. It also won’t cause dust to settle all that easily, much thanks to the baking soda in its composition. Furthermore, this litter is guaranteed to provide at least seven days of clear air inside the room, even when it has to react to multiple cats at the same time.
8Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Cat Litter
We all know how important it is for cat litter to be easy to dispose of, which is what makes this particular litter so special. Thanks to its biodegradable composition, you can dispose of it virtually any way you want.

7Arm & Hammer Multi-Cat Clump & Seal Clumping Litter
Arm & Hammer’s Multi-Cat Clump & Seal Clumping Litter is specially formulated to provide the best odor control possible.

It also has to be said that because of its effectiveness, you can very well keep this litter inside the house for at least 7 days.
