Cat Litter Selection – How to Find Your Cat’s Perfect Litter


By Amy Engle

There's little doubt that kitties can be persnickety critters, especially when it comes to their litter box preferences. One in every ten cats will have a litter box lapse in his or her lifetime, and finding the right litter can go a long way towards preventing or resolving litter box aversion issues. So how do you choose the "right" litter for your feline companion? Ask your cat! No, seriously, we mean it.

Cats are not shy about letting their humans know how they feel about a particular product, so if you're in the market for a new type of litter, start by looking at the features that matter to you, the human, and then bring a bag home for your kitty to try out. If your cat is not currently having litter box problems, it's probably a good idea to look for a new litter that resembles the old one either in terms of smell (scented or unscented), texture or scoopability. On the other hand, if you are dealing with some inappropriate urination issues, you might want to look at litters that differ from what your cat is currently using, or not using, as the case may be.
