Does this cat litter exist? Recommendations needed please

I am moving to Canada with 2 cats. A very popular litter in Europe is oko plus gold. It is good sized pellets, clumping and flushable. Oko does not exist in N America sadly as I am even up for getting it from the US as I am very close to the border. However, I cannot seem to find any litter that is reasonable sized pellet, clumping (I don't want wees sinking to the bottom of the tray), and flushable.

I have tried mine before on Worlds Best but it wasn't pellets so wasn't ideal. Pine fresh, feline fresh and shweat scoop appear to either be pellets or clumping, but not both.

Luckily they've been on Acana and Orijen food for years so food is sorted, just this litter dilemma.

Have I overlooked anything?

Thanks

Have you looked at the crystal litters? If you goggle it you might find it is something you like. I haven't used it personally. Good Luck!

Yesterdays News is pellets of recycled newspaper. I'm not sure if it's flushable. I tried it years ago. The one thing I didn't like was the ink, left black paw prints. I don't know if that's been fixed or not.

Thanks, I'll check those out. If not, looks like Blue natural clumping may be the closest just not really pellets

This has nothing to do with the 'litter end of things'......rather, my focus is at the other 'end'....with the your cats 'intake'.

Before you arrive, perhaps you'll have time for a little Feline Nutrition 101: But, my cat is fine on dry food!

(and, Arcana and Orijen have an enormous amount of fish content....perhaps this will explain why that 'feature' is both inappropriate and dangerous

Looking forward to lots of discussions with you....oh, and needing pictures, too!

I tried that Blue kitty litter. Did not like at all, it's walnut shells and very hard to tell clean from dirty and it stains. Some things just aren't meant to be kitty litter I think.

We use yesterday's news. It's quite good but is NOT flushable.

Personally I think flushing litter is a bad idea with any brand. No landlord would be happy with you if you are renting, that's for sure.

We scoop from the litterbox and it goes into a biodegradable dollar store baggy (a box of 60 bags is 1 dollar) and into our garbage. Seems simple enough for us

I reuse grocery store bags and double bag because they always have holes in the bottoms. I don't think I've ever flushed kitty litter.
