Avoidance and other litter box issues can be frustrating to deal with, and they generally aren’t related to the litter itself. That being said, switching to a new litter might help the situation, at least until you and your vet are able to determine the underlying cause of the problem.
Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract clumping clay litter is similar to the first item on this list but also contains an herbal cat attractant. Though we were skeptical about this feature at first, our volunteer cats really seemed to love the litter, and we found it performed fairly well in testing.
The first thing we noticed about this clumping clay litter is that it is incredibly dusty. In terms of clumping and odor control, however, it did quite well. There was some noticeable tracking and scatter, but not more than expected for this type of litter.
What We Liked:
- Contains an herbal cat attractant to encourage litter box use
- Forms tight, hard clumps that are easy to scoop
- Performed fairly well in odor control in a multi-cat household
What We Didn’t Like:
- Fairly heavy, can be a challenge during scooping
- A little bit pricey, around $0.74 per pound
- Quite dusty, could be a problem for some cats
