What is the Best Type of Cat Litter Available For Your Kitty?

List: Posted: 03/09/11

Caring for your cat properly is an important part of being a responsible owner.  One of those considerations is finding the best cat litter for your pet.  There are many different types of cat litter to be found in pet stores, but what is the best option?  Here are some cat litter choices to consider. 

Pine-Lumber Pellets
If you want to make sure that you are using a biodegradable, all-natural product, there are several brands that make use of pine pellets.  This cat litter can be flushed down the toilet when soiled, or it can be used in the yard as mulch if you prefer.


Whole Kernel Corn
There are several cat litter brands that make their litter out of whole kernel corn.  This is biodegradable, can be flushed down the toilet and can ever be used in the yard, much like pine pellets.  However, the price can put some people off, as it is quite high.


Clay cat litter is one of the more popular types on the market, simply because it clumps on contact with cat urine.  This allows you to easily scoop away the soiled litter and replace it with fresh litter.  However, this cannot be flushed down the toilet, and the chemical used to make the litter clump might worry some cat owners for health reasons.


Crystal-based cat litter is pretty popular with a lot of people.  This type of litter absorbs moisture and neutralizes odors, but it can be uncomfortable for your cat to walk on.  It can, however, last for up to a month with only minimal maintenance.
