clumping litters and kitty health

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find information about if or how clumping cat litter affects a cat's health. I remember seeing something about this a while back. While I love the convienence of this type of litter, I am worried about it affecting my cat's health. If any of you know something about this or know of a source I could go to I would really appreciate it. THANKS!

Cheyenne's Mom,

I don't believe clumping litter can effect a cat's health. I do know that kittens that are new to litterboxes will sometimes try to eat the litter which will cause an intestinal blockage. I have never had a problem with any of them.

Anyone else?

Have used the clumping litter for years and have had no problems with it. Have cats from one year up to sixteen years of age at his time.

I use clumping litter without any problem.

At some time it received a bad rep. This site seems to sum it up very well...


I like this page most as it discusses one case thoroughly and then gives the criticism:


Just don't stop reading in the middle, as the responses are also of value.

I use World's Best Cat Litter. It's corn based, breaks up immediately in water (toilet,) has good texture, almost no dust, but is more expensive. Phoebe and I love the stuff. Look for cat shows in your area. That's where I found this litter, and much cheaper (show prices are good deals.)
