Has anyone ever used or have an opinion on this litter?

Yup, I've used World's Best Cat Litter before. It's corn based and has excellent clumping abilities, yet won't stick to the litter box. Some people don't think it has good enough odor control but I thought it worked great (but I also scoop the box 2 or 3 times a day and I only have one cat). I thought it was hands down better than clay clumping litter, and more environmentally friendly. It is more expensive, although you use less.

Couple of warnings: some cats like to eat it :rolleyes: and it can possibly attract certain bugs depending on where you live.

Bugs? what kind? :eek:

I don't actually know, and it never happened to me during the couple years that I used it. The people I've heard that had issues with bugs returned the bags to the pet store for a refund, although it was never determined if the bugs were already in the bag or were attracted to the litter after it was opened.

Winston,I absolutely refuse to pay $39+tax for a large bag of litter:yell:
I still use clumping clay(Costco's).
I scoop often and change the entire litter every two weeks.
I got turned off WBCL by on of my sons room-mates,he used it and hardly ever scooped,every time I visited my son,I took out a huge clump and the litter was all over the house,the smell was awful.
However that room-mate was neglectful,an extreem example:yell:

Winston, don't let the name fool you. I bought this when Vlad was still a kitty. I found it to be terrible at odor control. And if I found it bad when I only had one kitten, I don't even want to imagine what my apartment would smell like with 5 grown cats.:eek:

I use Swheat Scoop and scoop once a day. I change my three boxes every two weeks, and refill in-between. When I can, I buy the Multiple cat swheat scoop, because it does clump faster and firmer. Swheat scoop is about $10 for a 14lb box, so it's not cheap for me, but so far it's the best thing I've found at keeping odor down, and my cats are okay with the way it feels. It is also dye and chemical free, so I like that.

Well I do use Costco's Simplicity Clumping Litter and have used that for years! what I hav enoticed lately is the amount of dust it has! it is alot! I use 2 litter boxes and the only time I notice any odour is if one of the cats doesnt cover their poop!

Its just the amount of dust that it has. I asked of the other because I was watching a friends cat and he uses this one? I never noticed any odour but it was really messy outside the box!..he said he was told it was good?

thanks for all the info:thumbs up

Awfully expensive for litter..

I also am always trying to find a good litter that will minimize the odour. I have this sprinkle stuff (sorry forget the name) manufactured here in Quebec and it really actually works.

Nevertheless, I am still in search of that miracle litter that has less dust and more active odour control.

Winston April 10th, 2009 07:55 AM

Benmax have you tried costco's ? it has a blue ingrediant mixed into the litter I forget what it is but its for odour control. Other than being dusty I have never noticed any odour.

Having said that I also think it makes a difference where you put the litter box in your home for being able to smell it??

I have to tell you that I did try Costco but I did not like it. I am a little picky I guess.

Having 4 cats, I scoop the boxes every 3 to 4 times a day. I clean the litter boxes completely twice a week. So I go through alot of litter. (1 litter box is cleaned only once a week completely...).

I live in a condo that is not huge and indeed the litter is tucked away in a closet but let me tell you - when that persian of mine poops - that odour knocks you out no matter where you are.:yuck:. And it gets scooped as quickly as it came out......

Winston April 10th, 2009 08:07 AM

I hear ya! I found that the change between Venison and Duck with my 2 almost killed me scooping it! :D

we too have been on the litter hunt as well and have yet to find the perfect litter.

So far the best for odor control (and we have tried practically everything you fab members have suggested except the pine stuff which we cannot find) seems to be Special Kitty (non clumping). It's a weird litter though in that it is made of silica beads that look like teeny balls the size of barley except that they are clear. When the silica beads are too "used" they change colour.

The only downside is that they bounce and sometimes you can hear us stepping on them. It doesn't "track" as much as some of the other litters but it does track a bit. We found it at wall mart in Canada.

This is by far the best odor reducing litter we have tried. We have 2 cats that use the same litterbox without issues.
