Cat’s Pride is proud to support the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.

Cat’s Pride has always been a supporter of animal advocacy organizations like the American Humane Association and the Anti-Cruelty Society. Today, that work continues with our partnership with the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, an organization committed to protecting the rights of animals and eliminating their needless suffering across the country. Cat’s Pride proudly donates a portion of each sale of Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation.

Thinking outside the litter box for over 70 years.

As experts in absorbency since 1941, Oil-Dri Corporation of America – makers of Cat’s Pride – has developed superior products from our unique clay minerals. Oil-Dri’s absorbents are used throughout the world to grow and process food, raise healthy livestock, enhance the safety of jet fuel and to keep sports fields dry and playable. This expertise has been used in developing our breakthrough Cat’s Pride products. We’ve been committed to creating premium cat litters that meet the needs of cats and owners by investing in research and development.

Filled with cutting-edge technology, our Nick Jaffee Center for Innovation is where our team of scientists gets hands-on, inventing groundbreaking new products like Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light to start the lightweight cat litter revolution. But we’re not stopping there. As we speak, our scientists are working on the next exciting product breakthrough to improve the lives and well-being of you and your cat, and stay at the leading edge of cat litter technology.

American clay for American trays.

Have you ever stared into your cat’s litter tray and asked “where does it all come from?” Well, we can tell you. All Cat’s Pride litter is sourced, processed and produced in North America. From research and development at our Innovation Center outside Chicago to our manufacturing plants in Georgia, Mississippi, and California, we own the entire litter process from start to finish. We’re proud to be an all-American cat litter made in the USA!

Our love of cats? It runs (and jumps) in the family.

The Cat’s Pride story transcends three generations of the Jaffee family – a family committed to making life better for cats and owners alike. It all started in 1941 when Nick Jaffee sold his first bag of Fuller’s Earth to absorb oil and grease from factory floors. The Oil-Dri brand was born. But it was in 1948 when Oil-Dri recognized a new opportunity to repackage sorbent minerals as cat litter. In 1960, the first ever Cat’s Pride premium cat litter hit the market. That same year, Richard Jaffee, Nick’s son, became president of Oil-Dri Corporation.

From there, Cat’s Pride has evolved and grown. There have been new facilities (like the Blue Mountain plant in Mississippi); new products (like the introduction of Fresh & Light in 2011); and the passing of the baton (Dan Jaffee, Nick’s grandson, became CEO of Oil-Dri in 1997). Yet through it all, one thing remains: a commitment to creating innovative, top-quality cat litter products for the well-being of cats. A commitment to Changing Litter for Good.
