What is the Best Cat Litter for Odor Control?

There are a ton of different cat litters and each one claims to be superior in clumping and odor control. Which cat litter is the best for odor control? Which cat litter really works? Which one is affordable, healthy for the cats and keeps the smell under wraps? Can it also be biodegradable, lightweight and low on dust? Can it also be antibacterial and flushable all at once? Yes!

I Found my Favorite, a Superior Litter!

After many years with cats and cat litter I have a hands down favorite. It is Okocat Natural Pine Cat Litter. Okocat makes several different kinds. Some clumping, some not clumping. I have not tried them all but I love the Natural Pine. It is superior to other litters in a number of ways.

The Best for Odor Control

It is the best I have found for odor control. It does not have any perfumes so it is healthier for us and the cats and doesn’t smell like cat litter. It has a light, pleasant pine scent that is all natural. It also lasts longer and controls smell better than other pine litters I have tried like Feline Pine.

Doesn’t Attract Bugs like Corn or Wheat Litter

It is also superior to other natural litters that are made from materials like wheat or corn. I tried the corn and didn’t like it since it is a food and attracts bugs!!

Naturally Antibacterial

Pine is naturally antibacterial! You get the odor control, antibacterial properties and no chemicals for your cats to ingest!

It is also not very dusty like so many litters. The dust in regular litter is bad for your cat and you.

This variety of Okocat is not clumping but that seems to work out fine. The pine is highly absorbent so it still lasts a long time. It has been tested to hold 5 times its weight in liquid and control odor for 7 days. You just scoop out the solids and change the box as necessary depending on your number of cats. That brings up yet another point, this litter is much lighter than traditional litter. Clumping litter also gets stuck in cat’s paws, so it’s not always a good thing.

Biodegradable and Flushable

This litter is also biodegradable and flushable!

I honestly don’t have anything negative to say about this litter. It is affordable, healthy, smells nice, controls odor and is light and easy to handle. It can be shipped to you by Amazon and has free shipping with Amazon Prime. If you are wondering what is the best cat litter for odor control, try out a box of Okocat. I am pretty sure it will be your new favorite. You can also try their other varieties such as Dust Free, Natural Wood Clumping and Clumping for Long Hair Breeds.

    Hey there,

    Having a cat myself, I know how bad the smell can be when they poop in places they shouldn’t. While I’m pretty satisfied with my current litter, this one sounds like a pretty goo product as well.

    I’ll be sure to give it a try!

    Thanks for sharing,

      Hello Anh,

      Yes, I love it! We get it auto-shipped from Amazon Prime now…don’t even have to go to the store and it is cheaper too! The litter is also healthier for cats than clay litter with chemicals.

      Thanks for stopping by,
