It’s empty in here!
I brought a 5kg bag of this litter from a local pet shop to try it out. The odor control was excellent, clumping was good enough also, very gental for my kitchen’s paws pad, and won’t stick on his long fur. So I brought This one. But clumping is bad enough- it does clump, only sometimes. When it doesn’t clump, wet small pieces loose litter everywhere. Until the smell as bad as a box has something gone bad and hasn’t opened for 10 years. I clean his litter box every day or every two days.
Having three house cats has always been messy, I have used Cat’s Best for years and been happy with it apart from the tracking...it gets everywhere! By the time I’ve hoovered the stairs and turned back round there is more there! Decided to try the smart pellets despite the price difference and I am not disappointed. Tracking is virtually non-exsistent especially as my cats have litter trays that they jump out of so it falls off them. I’m so pleased I changed and won’t be going back!
Cats used the Cat's Best Original Cat litter and were happy with that, so was I, very good clumpling, great odor control and no waiste. Thought this one would be better but is so much worse. Clumping is somewhat there and then it´s not - it breaks up into pieces with wet soil mixed with dry pellets surrounding it. Odour control is worse then the original was. Going back to Original and throwing this one away.
I have only switched to this litter recently but, so far, I love it! I very nearly didn't buy it because of all the negative reviews, but I'm so glad I decided to try it for myself - it's amazing! Virtually no tracking, clumps brilliantly, no odour, and no dust! It's much more expensive than other brands of litter, but it's worth every penny in my mind. I was using the Oko Plus version before, which is great but is dusty & tracks really badly - this is SO much better!
I have 3 cats. My ancient tabby lives in my bedroom. He seems to be a litter magnet and you can appreciate that I don't want to be walking on cat litter in bare feet. This is the first cat litter I have tried that didn't get all over the room including all over my bed. It doesn't clump as well as the ordinary Cat's Best which I use for my other 2 cats but as he is in my bedroom I remove the clumps twice a day and I haven't had any trouble with dust.
After all this negative comments I wasn’t sure but I have decided to try it and it didn’t disappoint me! My ragdoll doesn’t drag the litter through whole bathroom anymore (I had to hover 3times a day). Clumping is ok this is a bit different structure of litter so just need 10/15mins to soak up and is doing the job, you can remove everything in one go without leaving anything inside. The best choice ever!
We have two ragdoll and this is the worst litter we have every used.....our cats did have less litter on the floor BUT it is super difficult to clean since all clumps just fall apart.... take ages to clean. We will never ever buy it again..
Not sure why Zooplus are still selling this product. It is clearly inferior quality and the buying team should address otherwise overall custom will be lost
My Ragdoll cat leaves very little of this litter on the carpet. I have floor cushioning where my cat litter box is located but I do have a piece of carpet in front of the litter box so I don't get litter on the hard floor. It clumps together so is easy to remove, there is no smell from the litter box. I recommend this product, it is economical to use.
We've used this litter for over a year as it was the one that reduced odour and reduced tracking best. However, they recently changed the formula and now the pellets are smaller, and it doesn't clump quite as well as it used to. Worst of all though, every day I have to clean up all the tracked littler again. We have a rag doll so are limited in the little types we can use. It's so disappointing that they changed the formula. We are ordering a different brand next time. :(
I have been using this litter for many years with no problems. However recently noticed there has been a change of packaging and also a change in the size of the pellets. I buy this product as I have 4 Longhaired Persians and they didn’t get stuck in the paws resulting in Little tracking. I have now noticed a steady stream of pellets making there way up the stair carpet. This litter is way more expensive than the normal Cats best and I am afraid I will have to look at an alternative.
I have used this litter for a very long time. After having tried many, many different litters, this one was without doubt the best of them all. Pricier than some, much better than the tiny granules of other clumping litters. I have recommended it to so many people. It is with great disappointment that it seems something has changed . Although still good at odour control and tracking , it does not clump anywhere near as well as it used to. Where I used to easily be able to take the clumps out, now it crumbles and you spend ages trying to remove the left over bits. Please whatever you have changed, change it back to how it used to be.... I am almost getting to the point of looking at other litters 😞
After trying numerous cat litters, I found this to be by the best for minimal tracking and dust whilst being effective at clumping. World's Best is better at clumping but only because there is more dust to help with the process and I'd rather not have the dust blowing around and my cat sneezing!
This litter is perfect for our two indoor cats as there is absolutely no tracking round the house and the clumping aspect is really effective which reduces a lot of wastage when cleaning out the litter trays. The secret is to let the clumps harden slightly before removing them which prevents them falling apart. The price is definitely worth it.
I have 2 indoor cats one with long hair. This litter makes very little mess and absorbs wetness and stalls very well. It's flushable too so win win.
Have tried all types of cat litter. This is by far the best for my ragdoll and me! She is happy using it and it doesn't trail all-round the house, doesn't stick to her long fur, no horrible smells and lasts a long while, I do take the lumps out daily. Have been ordering from Zooplus for a few years they have always been very quick to deliver, very happy with them, never had any problems, and will definitely be ordering from them again.
The product that I got this last time does not clump as before. It now breaks up a lot and uses far more litter than it did. Please revert to original formula as it is now not nearly as good or economical as it was.
Great for my cute exotic shorthair persian cross. Avoids turning the flat in a gigantic cat litter! Makes daily clean mess free and easy too!
This is best litter by far for long haired cats, we have three Birman's usually the litter is everywhere but not with this brand.
Been using for 5 years, selected favourite after much trial and error. However The formula seems to have changed and it is no longer clumping as before. Please change it back!
I have two large cats, one elderly who pees a lot and this is the best litter I have tried so far, it doesn't smell and the last bag I had lasted 4 1/2 weeks. As with the clumping I found it depends on two things, the style of the cat pee (yes there really is one) and how much litter is left in the tray. Both my cats leave different shaped clumps the elderly a cone shape the younger a pancake. If the litter is nearly used it doesn't clump so well so I know its time to change it, easy.
have 2 ragdoll cats. Have used Cats best nature gold for a long while and am happy with it, There is no tracking and contains odours well but it doesn't seem to clump very well. will continue to use it as its the best for no tracking. Has it changed and why?
This is still great for not too much tracking and keeping the smells down, but the pee clumps don't seem to set as well as they used to so it breaks apart and the whole tray ends up with bits of disintegrating damp litter mixed in. This is a real shame as I didn't see me ever changing and now I think I am going to ahve to start searching again :(
Absolutely no smell however it's not as clumping as the reviews make out. If you pick out pee it just crumbles and goes all over the place. Also the pellets are just too big to use a scooper so lots of wasted litter. Would be top notch if it was more clumping.
I didn't realise that this is essentially a wood pellet type litter (should have checked and not relied on the 'plant fibres' description). I used wood pellets in the past, this brand does not clump very well (wood pellets don't tend to) and you end up shovelling out 'clean' litter when you're clearing out. It also comes in a large sack which was so heavy I couldn't lift it. I wouldn't buy again. But if you like wood pellet type litter, you'll like this.
There's very little tracking and dust, but extremely poor odor control. We have to change the litter very frequently and it doesn't clump that well so it's hard to scoop.
This definitely the best clumping litter I have ever used. Expensive but worth it.
We have been using cats best for over 10 years now and usually go for the oeko plus; since our new kitten has long fur we thought we give the nature gold a go, but it is not worth the extra money. You will use up more because it does not clump as well and the thicker granulates do not fit though the holes in the scoop. Cats best is great, but the oeko plus is our preferred option.
I agree with other reviewers in that it handles the smell well, there is very little tracking/dust, and it does not stick to fur. However, with a normal scoop, it is hard to separate the soiled bits from the clean ones. And the clumps break easily apart leaving soiled bits behind that can be hard to see. I have only been using it a few days and in only 1 tray, and have throw a lot of good litter away, which is a shame (and expensive!).
Have been using this litter for about 3 years and all of a sudden the clumps are not holding together anymore! Just the last few months something seems to have been changed in the formula. Has anybody else noticed same? It's not the same as before at all. Always used to be so easy to remove the clumps but not now, a bit of a nightmare to catch all the bits that fall off, sometimes the clump disintegrates altogether! I'm at a point of starting to look for another litter now. Still gave this 4 starts as it keeps tracking and smells down to a minimum.
This is the best cat litter I have ever used and now always buy it. It is easy to deal with and to dispose (down the toilet). Highly recommended and Zooplus always has it at a good price.
This litter is great overall; the litter itself has a very pleasant smell, does not track very much, masks odours very well and cats love it. However, it does seem impossible to prevent contamination of clean litter with soiled bits falling off the main clump..this is not surprising given the larger pellet size and to expect this litter to clump as efficiently as clay litter would be unreasonable. For this reason I do have to change the whole tray contents every week. For me, tracking and odour masking is a priority so for this purpose, this litter is great (and the cats must like it, obviously). If you want litter that clumps well and you don't mind sweeping up, look somewhere else. I suffer from asthma and this litter does not produce any dust so is good for all of us.
Great cat littler as although I prefer to use WBCL for my kitten, he did'nt like it and sneezed a lot after covering his little mess (he takes a little too long to be honest) so I tried Cat's Best Nature Gold as I wanted to avoid corn based litter and also wanted no tracking. It has worked just fine and Louie is happy and comfortable using his many trays around the house. I will carry on using this litter and I am also really impressed with customer services and fast turn around of orders on Zooplus.
Good clumping, smell control is ok (average). Main plus is that this does not track round the house! Even for short haired cats, this is great. The light colour makes it easy to find the bits to remove and the clumping is good. Overall very good, would give 5 stars if smell control was perfect.
Although this product's advertised for long-haired cats I use it for my two short-hairs. Their litter trays are in a carpeted hallway and tracking has always been a nightmare for me - but not with this stuff! Absolutely no dust so nothing sticks to fur or carpet - and because it's in pellet form anything they do kick out can simply be picked up by hand and chucked back into the tray. I no longer need to vacuum on a daily basis! Absolutely no odour, clumps really well, and it's flushable which is what I'd been looking for because I stay in a 2nd-floor flat. Just be careful with the flushing though, only put a small amount into the loo and leave for a bit before you flush as it swells considerably in water. And don't be discouraged by the price - it may look expensive but lasts for ages - I only need to fully clean and wash their trays every 4 weeks - just top up if I need after removing clumps. Really can't recommend this product highly enough!
Having always used budget litters in the past, they came with odour, dust and tracking that became so hard to tidy properly even with frequent vacuuming. This product was recommended and it is a breath of fresh air literally, keeping smell at bay and virtually no mess- the fact it goes straight in the toilet is an added bonus. Overall a brilliant product!!
After having tried clay, clumping, non clumping, silicone and wood non clumping litter, it is my opinion that this is the best choice. It performs well in all areas. Excellent absorbing and clumping action; the litter tray remains dry even if very little litter is left on the bottom. Excellent odour control; you only smell the pine. Minimum tracking; none of it exits the litter tray room and it doesn't crumble like the non-clumping version. Sure, I'd love it to be cheaper but we can't have it all in this life :)
I have 2 cats and 2 litter boxes. I used to use ordinary plant based non-clumping. This has improved the smell from the old cat so much, and it clumps brilliantly even though I used up some non clumping litter in the same box. So it is turning out very economically as I don't have so much litter to throw away. It doesn't work quite so well for the kitten. It is fine if I keep checking it, but if the clumps are left to dry they will powder. The other thing is that she likes to play with the pellets!
We have tried a lot of different brands but this one is the best! We use it now for the last 4.5 years and I would not change it. It works well with our 2 cats 1 short hair & 1 long hair. It has very little to none tracking, clumps well the key is do not scoop wee right away but wait a little. You can flush it down the toilet so no stinky poo in the bin. :-) it's economical, ecological, and no dust at all - great for our cats and us. Our cats used to be covered in the dust & sneezed a lot with other types of litter but not with this one. It's a winner for us!
Looking for a flushable and compostable cat litter and reading the good reviews decided to try Cat's Best Öko Plus. The only disappointment was the tracking, especially as it stuck on the furry paws and tail of the long haired cat and spread around the house even with a tracking mat. Next up was to try the pelleted version. It doesn't track much but the downside is that is doesn't clump as well. The solution is to use the pellets as a top layer. It's cheaper that way too. Wouldn't buy any other litter ever again. It lasts ages, no smelly bins full of heavy clay, no landfill and 2 happy kitties… and a happy owner.
