- What cat litter
currently using Cat’s Best Öko Plus Cat Litter 30 Litre but it tracks a stupid amount. I want somthing that clumps and is flushable as well as safe, none stinky and not clay.
My girls are indoor guard cats (front door opens and they run the other way) so need to keep them happy.

When you say ‘tracks’, what do you mean – they’re carrying it around on their paws after having a dump?
Try having something removable/washable they can scrape their paws at the entrance to the tray – cats will naturally want to do this.
We just use wood pellet litter. Tried the clay clumping stuff and it seemed to make more mess and was harder to clean up overall, just turning into sludge which stuck to the tray even when you tried to hose it off.Posted 3 years agocranberryMember
I have used Biocat, but it tracks. I tried Greenwoods whilst on holiday in the UK and was impressed with it – it really does soak things up and doesn’t track as much.
Edit – a good litter tray mat is important to stop tracking – do you have/use one ?
Just read some of the reviews of the Greenwoods and people are saying that it tracks – I wonder if it didn’t seem too bad because my mum’s place has a beige carpet ? :-#Posted 3 years ago
The problem there isn’t the litter; you need a covered litter tray.
You’ve not met my girls have you. for the safety of every life on this planet NO cover.
Thanks CHB and Carlosg
My other mistake in life was teaching them to tell me when they poop. I have not slept through an entire night yet without being woken by a happy empty cat 🙁Posted 3 years agorickmeisterSubscriber
What Ming said.
Catsan is ace, even I can drop in and log on with impunity. It desiccates the half kilo solid, just so, to be able to pick up the stool and fling it in the wood burner.
I find the sound and texture soothing as it passes through
my fingersmy cats paws, leaving no trace….
It’s even possible to use Catsan in Xmas decorations as imitation snow… Great as a base for tea lights on the tablePosted 3 years agomartinhutchMember
Most of the wood pellet ones are great, wrap it up and chuck it in the stove when done, great calorific value as well…
Come home to a real fire…that stinks of cat piss?
I’ve just put my two into covered trays because of their habit of just pissing sideways out of an open tray, normally up against the wall.
It’s like a little miracle.Posted 3 years agoloddrikMember
I have 4 cats all who are 90% indoor, they even come back inside to crap FFS! I have two litter trays which I change daily, I avoid clumping stuff as it becomes unusable after a few cat visits. After years of experimentation I use Tesco Everyday Value Lightweight Cat Litter, £1.55 a bag. Best for value in my experience.
The absolute best is Tesco Low Dust Lightweight Cat Litter, if I had one or two cats it’s what I’d use but with 4 cats and at £3.10 a bag it gets a bit pricey to change two trays a day.

I use the cheap supermarket stuff too (Tesco basic stuff does seem better than the others) and change it fairly often.
Really liked the covered tray but it actually causes me more issues than it solved as one of mine pees against the back wall which runs down it and out between the join onto the floor. They have no issues with an open tray.
Paper has been the only thing I’ve found trails round the house in a major way.Posted 3 years ago
