We asked Dorian from Your Daily Cute to tell us what she thinks of World’s Best Cat Litter. She’s been using it for a little while now and here’s what she has to say:

My oldest cat, Pimp, is 12, so you know we’ve gone through our fair share of cat litters. He’s never been too picky — if he can dig in it, he digs it. Moo is 3, and also non-fussed. So our search for the perfect litter has been more for my benefit that theirs. But as they say, a happy litter box is a happy human. They do say that, right? I mean, I’m in there scoopin’ just as often as they’re in there poopin’…

That said, we switched to World’s Best Cat Litter a few months ago, and it’s made all of our lives better. I chose World’s Best because it was corn-based and, from what I’d heard from others, less dusty than other scoopable litters. The dust. Oh, the dust! If I could just find a magic dustless cat litter.

World’s Best Cat Litter , I’m super happy to report, is almost dustless when it comes to what flies around the bathroom when they use it. Gone are the days of the dust cloud when you refill the box and a constant film over every surface from the boys kicking up dust when after they’re business is done. It does, however, tend to stay on their paws, so I see a bit of yellow dust on the tables if they sit there. No big deal, though; just wipe and go.

It’s a really great clumper and fantastic at keeping odor at bay. I am a bit obsessive about scooping as soon as I see something in there, so this was never a real problem with us, but I am less knocked-over by some of the stuff my cats cook up than I use to be, if you know what I mean.

But the best part? Seriously, I am in love with World’s Best for this reason more than any other: I can’t explain it, but for some reason Pimp doesn’t feel the need to kick half the litter out of the box when he’s done. Ever since he was a little kitten, he’s always made a complete beach out of the bathroom floor with his litter. I have bought litter boxes with tall sides, bigger boxes, tried tracking mats… nothing helped. Until now. I think maybe it’s the texture.

Since World’s Best Cat Litter is corn-based, the pieces (Pebbles? Kernels? Litter bits?) are a little larger than regular scoopable litters. Maybe it’s just not as fun to throw the bigger stuff around. Whatever the reason, I’ll take it!

Because of the larger size, though, I recommend slowly transitioning to this from your usual litter. I tried the first time cold turkey, and neither of my usually not-picky boys wanted anything to do with it. I gave it about a day before I felt bad and went back to our old litter.

A few months later, with wise advice to treat it like switching their food (slowly, so they notice less), we gave World’s Best Cat Litter a second shot. I started with only about 1/4 of it and 3/4 regular litter and slowly added more as the week went on. After about 7 days, we were almost entirely switched and the boys seemed to have no problems with it. Success!

One note about price: World’s Best Cat Litter is a little more expensive than other scoopable litters, but for me it’s totally worth it. We don’t go through it as quickly as we did with other brands and it seems to stay fresher longer without needing to be totally replaced.

Our verdict? Two thumbs and four paws up!
