Sustainably Yours Multi Cat Plus Cat Litter, The Cat 24

While clay cat litter is technically natural, many cat owners are in the market for plant-based or biodegradable cat litter. Our top pick in this category is Sustainably Yours Multi-Cat Plus Cat Litter.

This is a fine-grained cat litter made from corn and cassava. It produced a little bit of dust when pouring it into the litter box, but we found it performed quite well overall. This litter forms very firm, cohesive clumps that are easy to scoop, and the odor control was pretty good.

While the odor control of this litter isn’t as strong as some of the clay litters on this list, we found it to be much stronger than some other plant-based litters we’ve tested. The primary downside of this litter is the degree to which it tracks—it has incredibly fine granules that can stick to your cat’s paws and make their way out of the litter box onto your floor.

This plant-based cat litter comes in three different formulas—two for multi-cat households and one with large grains to help prevent litter tracking and scatter. It comes in easy-to-manage 13-pound bags.

What We Liked:

  • Forms firm, cohesive clumps for easy scooping
  • Fine granules are gentle on your cat’s paws
  • Biodegradable, made from plant-based materials
  • Performed fairly well in odor control

What We Didn’t Like:

  • May be a little bit dusty when you first pour it
  • Very fine granules tend to track and scatter easily
  • Fairly expensive, almost $2 per pound
