Choosing the right cat litter isn’t always a simple matter. Below we’ve compiled some of your most commonly asked questions to help ensure you make the right decision, every time.
Fresh & Light is a low dust premium clumping litter that’s up to 50% lighter* than other scoopable clay cat litters, while providing the same number of uses.* This means it’s easier to lift, carry and pour. Fresh & Light also provides outstanding performance by absorbing tough odors on contact and forming hard clumps for easy scooping. It’s better for the environment, too – because it weighs less than other clay litters, more packages fit in a truckload and fewer trucks are needed to ship it, so less fuel gets used.
*Based on laboratory testing, as compared to a leading scoopable clay litter. Results may vary based on individual litter changing habits.
Cat’s Pride Scoopable does not clump as hard as other litters made from sodium bentonite. This is because it’s designed to disperse in water so it will flush and not clog toilet pipes. It also has excellent deodorizing abilities and is designed primarily for single-cat households.
Cat’s Pride Complete Scoop clumps very hard and is designed for multiple-cat households. It eliminates odors three times longer than the leading national brand.*
Cat’s Pride Natural Scoop is designed for allergic or sensitive cats and households. It contains no perfumes, dyes or chemicals. It clumps hard, has low dust, and provides 100% natural odor elimination so it’s safe and gentle for your cats.
*Based on laboratory testing vs. leading national scoopable clay litter, according to third-party market research, when used as directed.
The additives we use are proprietary, but we only use fragrances and ingredients that pass a safety review by our scientists. We also provide litters with only natural ingredients.
Our Cat’s Pride Premium Scoopable litter is the only national scooping clay litter without sodium bentonite, which can clog your pipes. It has passed through rigorous testing for flushability* in non-septic systems so you can make cleanup easy by flushing.
*Flushability has been tested using standard residential piping. For best results, scoop on a daily basis and flush no more than 2 clumps at a time. Septic tank system disposal was not tested and is not recommended. Consult with relevant municipal authorities on flushing restrictions. For example, the State of California encourages putting cat feces in trash, and discourages flushing feces in toilets or disposal in drains.
Some clay litter products contain sodium bentonite, a natural clay material that forms clumps when exposed to liquid. Sodium bentonite is also sold for use in animal feeds. Any suggestion that sodium bentonite will cause harm or fluid retention in cats is simply not accurate and has never been documented in the veterinary scientific community. In fact, numerous consultations, interviews, and tests by many vets have found no evidence relating normal use of a clumping/sodium bentonite litter with the sickness or death of any kitten or cat.

Bags of cat litter provide weight in the trunk of your car to improve traction. However, because certain litters get soft when wet, it can be slippery. We would recommend Oil-Dri granular absorbents instead of cat litter for spilled oil or traction under tires in the snow as these products have a greater capacity to function in icy conditions.

If you have recently switched litters:
- Is it a clean, fresh litter box? If so, we recommend slowly mixing in the old litter with the new one that you just purchased. Cats are finicky and get used to one smell so a change can throw them off.
If you haven’t switched litter, condsider the following:
- The litter box may have a urine/waste odor. We recommend that you completely empty the litter box, clean it with soap and water, and fill it with fresh litter.
- Have there been any major disruptions in the cat household? This can cause stress and rejection. For example, your cat may be confused by a recent change in litter box location.
- Your cat may not be feeling well. If the cat continues to reject the litter box, we recommend contacting your vet to make sure there is nothing else going on.
Most cat litter products should never be disposed of down a sink or toilet. Of all our products, only Cat’s Pride Premium Scoopable and Fresh & Light Flushable litters are safe to flush*. When using these products, we recommend that no more than two clumps be flushed at a time in non-septic systems.
*It has been determined through laboratory testing that Cat’s Pride Scoopable Premium and Fresh & Light Flushable cat litters are flushable through residential plumbing systems designed and maintained in accordance with plumbing codes. Disposal of these litter products through septic tank systems has not been evaluated and is not recommended. To ensure flushability, do not flush more than two clumps at a time and always remove clumps from litter box daily. Local regulations on flushing vary. Please review and comply with them.
Our litter is made from natural, superabsorbent clay. While it cannot be further biodegraded like leaves, yard waste, or some alternative litters, its absorption characteristics continue when it is disposed of, limiting harmful materials from entering water resources after disposal. For that reason, clays are actually used to line landfills. In contrast, alternative litters made from corn and wheat create methane gas in landfills when they decompose, and also provide no lasting absorption. We caution against composting or disposing of any used litter (clay or alternatives) in a yard or garden because a bacteria often found in cat’s waste (toxoplasmosis) may be harmful to humans and other animals.
