Neither one is better than the other, they are based on preference. More people prefer to use clumping cat litter. Although clay litter is cheaper and absorbs well, clumping cat litter offers more advantages in my opinion. Clumping cat litter is much friendlier to the environment, seeing as you do not need to throw away the whole litter box every time your cat releases waste. It is easy to dispose of your cats waste products and helps to diminish the amount of odors.

Back ground information of littering


I am a professional show breeder - since 1969,. I strongly urge cat owners to nevereverever! use clumping or clumpable litter. You see what happens when it gets a little wet? Well, that same thing can happen when it gets between moist kitty toes, in moist nostrils, moist mouth/lungs, eyes!! While working for a vet we spent TWO DAYS chipping 'concrete' out from between a cat's toes, and have euthanized a few and heard of more, that had compromised nostrils and lungs from the dust in the litter turning to a concrete-like binding!

How to install these cat pan liners


I hate those liners, the cat usually moves them around or scratches holes in them. I use World Best Cat litter and never have to throw out the litter. It clumps well and never drops to the bottom like a lot of other litter.

I would really like my cat to have a clean litter box throughout the day. Do self-cleaning litter boxes really work? If so, this could be a worthwhile investment.


I would recommend you check out the LitterMaid litter box. It has two sensors on either side of the box that detect when a cat uses it. After 10 minutes, a rake automatically comes and scoops clumps of solid and liquid waste into a disposable container at the end of the litter box. Keep in mind that this does not eliminate you cleaning the box.

Is it possible for my cat to be allergic to their litter?


Both cats and humans have the potential to be allergic to cat litter. If you think your cat is allergic to the litter the first thing you should do is change the type of litter you are using. You should try a non-clay based litter that does not create silica dust. You may also want to purchase a new litter box; perhaps something made of metal or ceramic.

What are the different types of cat litter?


The two most popular types of cat litter are clay and clumping; however there are a few other types that are less popular but still good. Other litter types include biodegradable materials such as plant resources, wood and paper. The newest type of cat litter is called silica. It consists of silica beads/pellets that can absorb your cats ***** without you having to scoop.
