It’s empty in here!
see title. Have been buying it for years & won't use anything else (ok I stretch it with value Fullers Earth sometimes but that's it)
I have to admit, I was a little sceptical. A plant based (wood looking) cat litter that clumps? I've always prefered the plant/wood based litters as the odour of the tray always seems to be much better absorbed by them. However, the dust that got trampled around the house once the litter started to disintegrate drove me mad. But this one actually does clump (& better than most clay based clumping litters too!) meaning that all the smellies can be removed from the tray with a scoop & flushed down the loo. One week in and the litter tray smells just as fresh as the day it was cleaned out & this litter put in, so I can well believe the claims on the bag that the litter only needs changing every 4-6 weeks. As for the tracking issue that other reviewers have mentioned, I've not noticed that it is any worse than any other litter. So, a big thumbs up from me.
I've tryed lots of others & this is the best! Only down side is it will get tracked around the home but I've found all litters do... Great on keeping smells down. Really great! We have 3 cats & 1 of them have 5 kittens. So well tested! I find it's also good value for money as lasts longer than other brands. If your not happy with your cat litter give this a try.
I have tried many cat littes and this one is my absolute favorite..finally the house doesnt smell as bad as it did with the others....it clumps and can easily be flushed down the toilet and of course its all natural..fab product wont need to test out litters anymore
I took a chance on this litter just by the reviews alone and I've never been happier with my purchase. The litter clumps and absorbs odour beautifully. The kitties tend to track a little of it when they leave the box, but it's nothing that I wouldn't be hoovering up anyway on a different litter. My kitties seem to be happy with it too. Thank you everyone for your great reviews and litter advice.
Having tried both "Cats best" and "Worlds best" litters, I now stick to "Cats best" and won't change, unless they change it and make it unusable or they stop making it altogether.
Do not buy this litter, it tracks everywhere. I found it ALL OVER my flat, in every crevice. World's best is a similar price and FAR better IMO.
Clumps beautifully. Very easy to remove both pee & poo. Little tracking.
This is so much better than anything I've used before. It doesn't smell and you can even flush it way.
Great litter the clumping is amazing and 1 bag seems to last ages. Easy to scoop out the clumps so no wastage. Some people say it masks the smell of poop but I wouldn't say it does, no urine smells though like I've noticed with some over litters. Its not to messy although it does get in my cats paws and she always shakes them as she come out of the tray. I use a litter mat which pretty much traps these lose bits. Tried other litters but this is still the best for us.
I have three indoor rescue cats, two long haired, one short haired. They are all really fussy and I'd struggled to find a litter that all three would use without accidents next to the tray. Then I tried Oko Plus and it's fantastic! It's not as dusty as other litters I've tried, I like that it's ok to compost and being flushable has meant friends are happier when cat sitting for me. It is slightly more expensive than my old litter but it lasts longer so works out to around the same price. The cats have taken to it really well and since I started using it there have been no accidents outside the tray. There is no amonia/urine smell and when my cats bury their poop, no smell from that either (although I have one who have never mastered that trick so the whole house knows when she's been in the tray!) I haven't noticed it getting caught in their fur any more than other litters but the big drawback is the amount it tracks. Even with a litter mat I do get a far amount on the carpet outside the bathroom door but to be honest, the two minutes it takes to run the hoover round is a small price to pay for all the advantages.
Its a very best litter for everyone cats,economical and easy used in your home,my BSH cat love his and I am buy all time and will be buy forever!
Plus points of Cats Best Oko Plus: 1. My 2 oriental type cats prefer this litter. 2. Natural product, non toxic, safe for my cats. 3. Masks odours very well and has a pleasant, natural woody/pine smell. 4. Clumps well and is easy to deal with. 5. Environmentally friendly and biodegradeable. Minus points of Cats Best Oko Plus: 1. Tracks a lot. Even though I have a large mat by the tray, I am sweeping up bits of cat litter two or three times a day and still finds bits on the carpet and sometimes even upstairs. 2. It is a bit dusty. 3. I find that it does not last anywhere near as long as the manufacturer states. I use a jumbo sized litter tray, which gives my cats room to turn around. It takes 5 litres of litter each time and I change the tray completely every 5 to 7 days. I have read other reviews which advise that you can save the litter after removing the clumps and put it back in the tray after cleaning, but personally, I don't and wouldn't do this. A 10 litre bag lasts my 2 cats a maximum of 2 weeks. I have recently tried the Cats Best Gold litter, which is in pellet form rather than chips, designed not to cling to the fur of long haired cats. I would also give that 4 stars. It does not track anywhere near as much as the original and is not so dusty and possibly lasts a day or so longer between complete changes as it does not break down so quickly, however, my cats don't seem to like the feel of it under their paws quite so much and we have much (noisy) raking in the litter tray and it is a little more expensive than the ordinary Cats Best Oko Plus. Overall, both are good, but have their advantages and drawbacks. You pays your money and you makes your choice.
but this one comes very close. Yes the tracking/sticking to the paws and bum is quite bad (specially with my long hair cat which jumps over two mats when leaving the box, grrrrr!!!) but not unmanageable; it controls smells very well - changing my cat's diet, albeit due to renal problems, made a huge difference also - I can just scoop clumps (not hard as rock, but not mushy) and flush down the toilet; and to me the biggest advantage is that the dust is indeed minimal and it does not trigger my asthma as ALL of the clay and most of the paper based litters do.
my 5 cats have been using oko plus now for about the last 6 months. on the whole i am very pleased with it. in comparison to fullers earth and silicon cat litters i think it is excellent in the way it clumps so easily therefore making it unnecessary to completely clean out so often. the only drawback is the amount of tracking. however, i have found that by using the litter mats to put next to the litter boxes, it does help to reduce tracking quite a bit. will definately continue using oko plus.
I haven't tried other types of litter other than wood-based, but I have tried other brands which turn to mush. I have a door-mat (runner length) outside the litter tray "flap" and don't generally get any tracking of litter beyond this mat. I would recommend this litter and I don't use anything else now.
After reading all these reviews (which were a mixture of good and bad) and looking for a litter that wasn't clay based (used 'Litter Purrfect' from cost co. for last 4 years) we decided to give this one a try.. sadly disappointed with the results. with our old litter we used to find bits over the kitchen floor and sometimes on work units..but this ended up everywhere..and I mean everywhere! even upstairs! (we can only think it's because they're long haired maine coons) the clumps crumble when you're trying to shake the unused bits from the scoop and it doesn't disguise the smell neither. So if you have 1 or 2 short haired cats this may be suitable for you, but we will definately be going back to our old litter which is excellent at clumping and disguising the smell. Mental note to self..don't keep trying different litters because I don't think we'll find one better than litter purrfect!
I have been using this litter for years now and in my opinion it is certainly the best out there, and I've tried many. Yep it tracks but so does most litter - at the speed the cats come out of the tray it's not surprising!! I have two trays, one is a Booda Dome tray and this has stopped a lot of the tracking compared to the normal hooded one. The fact that some have said their cats poo still smells is to do with what they eat and not the litter, it cant make poo smell. My cats eat a high quality food and their poo doesn't smell at all. The problem I experienced with other litters was the lingering amonia smell, especially with Catsan granules, the wee would sink to the bottom of the tray resulting in very wet smelly litter. Oko plus completely absorbs all amonia smells and the tray remains dry. It clumps amazingly well making litter clearing on the whole a much better job.
I have used Oku Plus for about a year. I agree with many of the negative comments - it can track a fair amount, it is not quite as economical as suggested and any poos do smell - but I like to be able to scoop up the well-formed clumps and periodically dispose of it in a way that will not add to landfill. I have a litter tray upstairs where I use other types of litter and I am amazed how much I have to put out each fortnight with the refuse. Personally I think it is quite an advantage if I can smell that one of my cats has done a poo. I can see that this would not be great if you are out all day, but as I am around it alerts me to go and clean out the tray. No, this litter is not perfect, but I love the 'natural' smell and the cats, particularly my kitten, love the softness.
The a mat helps a lot
Must be one of the best clump forming low odour litters around.Swear by it!. We use two types.Oko for wee and a clay based granulated for pooh.Cats seem to know which one to use and works well for us. Flush it if you want, but put ours in the re-cycle bin.
Ive tried clumping Catsan which I found fine but a little dusty, this was recommended to me on a pets website forum and Ive found it fantastic. Its really economical, I have 2 indoor adult cats and with skipping out 2-3 times a day a bag lasts me a good month, there is no odour at all and no dust at all, the tracking is easy to pick up with dustpan and brush and there is not too much of it, its super absorbant and soft on paws, my cats seem very happy to use it, I wouldnt buy anything else.
I would have given this product five stars because it's the best litter I've ever used. The only little minus comes from tracking: it's lightweight and therefore it gets quite easily outside the litter box. But, it clumps well, keeps the smells away a lot better than average litters, is biodegradable, lightweight and very economical. I definitely recommend this litter.
Much more convenient than the non-clumping pelleted sawdust: just remove the lumps and replenish the box. Before reading the minor gripes, note that I've just ordered 2 more large bags. But not quite perfect: the particles of litter are very light and seem to stick to the cats' feet more than the pellets; there's a little more of the stuff scattered on the floor around the box. Also, like the pellets, tiny fragments of wet stuff are inevitably left behind to become a layer of dust in the litter and I'm still trying to work out how best to get the cats to pee in the dusty bits and use it up.
This is the best cat litter I have ever used. Clumps perfectly, no smells, lasts for ages, cats love it. Really can't be beat and very good value price on zooplus
I've been using this litter for over a year now, but I'm back to looking for something better. The main thing for me is the lack of odour control, especially after "big business". Also, the clumps are not very tight and sometimes crumble, and stick quite a lot to the bottom. This, I believe, is why the litter box starts smelling after a week at the latest, despite regular scooping: some of the soiled litter always stays behind. Considering the frequent complete litter replacement, it's actually quite expensive. Minor complaints are the dust (not too bad) and tracking (quite bad). Having said all this, I have yet to find something better (have tried and rejected silicate granules and regular betonite clumping litter). Next on the list to try is Porta Pine...
I've used Catsan which is good but this is REALLY good! It makes cleaning/clearing the litter tray a much easier and cleaner job with no smell. I have a composter and love the fact that I can recycle the waste. No problems with 'tracking'. Really good product that I would recommend.
We have 24 cats, therefore a lot of litter trays (10)! We had used a non clumping wood-based litter for years prior to discovering Cat's Best Oko Plus and were reasonably satisfied. However, after trying Cat's Best, we would never go back to using a non-clumping litter again. Yes, you do get tracking, but most eco cat litters will track. Believe me, the benefits far outweigh a little bit of extra sweeping up. Even with our brood, a 40 litre bag lasts a month at least and makes litter tray cleaning so much easier. Conventional wood-based litters are cheaper but most of the time you throw perfectly good litter away because the soiled pellets turn to a powder which mingles with the unused litter. I strongly recommend you try it and see for yourselves.
When they wee it clumps into a ball and dries everything out. I was so impressed by the small 5L bag that I have now bought the 40L - I have a huge cat litter box so it needs about 6L to fill it to a suitable depth but this bag will last for months as you only have to throw away the soiled bits. Amazing. I can't see that I will ever need to look elsewhere for cat litter. Oh, and it's flushable too, although I haven't been doing that, but it's good to know.
I've tried every single cat litter there is on our local petshop, but disappointed on erevy one of them. Then I heard about Öko Plus, and wanted to try it, and you don't know how amazed I was! It's the best cat litter I've seen! I love it, my cats love it. It's ecological,economical and easy to use. I used to hate to clean up the litterbox when there was claybased litter, because the clumps udes to stick on the bottom and sides of the box. But with Öko, thats not a problem, the clumps are easy to remove and they don't fall to pieces as easily as the clay-based litter. It's true that Öko tracks a bit, but so does every litter I've tried. Alltogether, Öko Plus is perfect for us, won't buy anything else!
I have two BSH's and have worried about getting clumping due to rumours of health problems. After being frustrated trying all the odour absorbing litters on the pet store and still hving to bleach the two jumbo trays every 3 days I gave in and started trialling clumping litters. I hate the smell of sawdust/wet wood so tried all the others before I finally gave in and got this. It's fabulous. I can't believe how long it lasts. Granted nothing covers the smell of poop and my boys are very stinky but I sift it many times per day. The smell of sawdust is minimal and far preferable than the smell of catsan after 2 days. Yes it tracks but I sweep the bathroom floor regularly and I'd rather that than litter smell. My only complaint is it lasts so long I struggle to bleach my trays as often as I like plus I wish I'd discovered it before I invested in a litter locker as it's flushable.
Both of my lovely british short hairs love this stuff! It's not just a litter that flushes down the loo and doesn't smell, it's economical too and great fun for the two rascals because they love messing about with it :-) it does track around the flat a bit but with dail;y sweeping it really is no bother at all. I highly recomment this stuff and will buy again and again.
I bought the 40L because it was such good value. It's tricky to store such a large bag, but it's a fantastic product, so worth finding somewhere! There is no dust like with conventional litter, it clumps perfectly to remove little presents without the waste of throwing away clean litter and there is absolutely no odour. The kittens love it, it is soft and easy to scratch around - I will only ever buy this product in future.
This is the best i've tried: - it's soft on their paws - controls odours really well - clumps brilliantly, therefore v economical - i put the wee clumps directly in my compost heap - is light, easy to handle and sweep up
I have been looking for something like this for years. Yes, it tracks, but not as bad as all my older litters. It's easy to keep trays clean. All I do is remove clumps & add more to trays as I need it. I would recomend this product & site to any cat lover. I have converted one work mate to this product & they are also amazed at how good this is. Thanks Zooplus.
I've tried several different cat litters including World's Best, Everclean, Catsan and others. I found Everclean to be very good but rather expensive and a pain to wash the litter tray because the clay seemed to clog up the drains no matter how little of it was left to wash off. Oko Plus is by far my favourite. My two bengals love it, it holds odour well, it lasts for ages and is very reasonably priced compared to other brands. I'd definitely recommend this and will certainly be sticking to it. The fact it's organic and biodegradable is good too as I have peace of mind knowing I'm not polluting the environment with substances that don't break down over time.
I'd tried loads, but this is the one I'm staying with. Excellent product.
No smell, easy to dispose after clumping. Cat loves it. Worth the extra cost.
we love this product, last for weeks for our 3 cats, do not stick to their long hair.
this is the best litter we have ever used,we have 7 cats and a 10l bag lasts over a month easy,all you have to do is top it up and flush the mess down the pan
