World's Best Cat Litter: Review & Giveaway

I love my cats, but one thing I do not love is the litter box. I hate the artificial way scented litters smell, the dust that clay litters create, and the excessive amount of litter my cats always manage to track outside of the box. So when I was offered a chance to try World's Best Cat Litter, and all-natural, made from corn litter, I jumped at the chance.

I was a little apprehensive about switching litters. My boy Boots and my girl Bruin are both very picky about their litter, and I was worried that this change would be met with protest. Odin, my sweet senior boy who was recently rescued from a feral colony, had yet to get used to having a litter box, so I was not as concerned with him. He did not seem to care what litter was in the box - he was perfectly happy to use the floor instead.

You can imagine how excited I was when Boots immediately took to World's Best Cat Litter. As soon as I had cleaned the box and filled it with the new litter he was there sniffing about, and used the box before I even had a chance to put it back into its spot. Bruin too, took quickly to the new litter without a single hint of protest. And then Odin, who had refused to use his box since we took him in a month before, used his box that first night! I wonder if the litter felt more natural to him, like the ground outside? Or perhaps it was because the litter was not artificially scented, and therefore more pleasant to an animal who was used to nothing but nature smells? Whatever the reason, I was beyond excited that all three of my kitties were using the World's Best Cat Litter.

One of the first things I noticed about the litter was how little dust there was when I poured the litter into the box. I had heard how bad the dust from clay litter can be for pets, and World's Best Cat Litter is virtually dust-free. Perfect for my Bruin and her allergies. It also keeps the area around the box looking cleaner, which is a plus for any cat owner. 

I also noticed was how easy the clumps were to clean. The litter clumps quickly after the cat uses it, and the clumps stay together making scooping and disposing them much easier. Cleaning the cat box is never fun, but at least now it is not unpleasant. 

Another thing I noticed was the smell. I had tried the World's Best Cat Litter Scented Multiple Cat Clumping Formula. It is scented using all natural ingredients, and I loved the scent (seriously, I considered pouring some in a bowl for potpourri!). World's Best Cat Litter also does a wonderful job of controlling litter box odor - with three cats this is so important! Except for the first few minutes after the cats used the box I couldn't smell any cat odors at all. I have a feeling that if your cat covers their mess (which none of mine do) you would not smell anything. The best part was that I noticed there was never any urine smell, even after using the litter for days, which always happened with other litters. 

World's Best Cat Litter is made from all-natural whole kernel corn. It is safe for pets, safe for people, and safe for the environment. It offers superior odor control and is longer lasting than most conventional cat litters on the market. It is quick clumping, making scooping the cat box quick and easy. The litter comes in three formulas - Clumping, Multiple Cat Clumping, and Scented Multiple Cat Clumping

Want to try World's Best Cat Litter for yourself? Well, you have a few options. You can take advantage of their First Bag Free rebate program (read my post here for full details). There is also a money saving coupon available for $5 off any bag of World's Best Cat Litter.
