Does it look too bizarre to try? Sure, it’s dark brown litter made of walnut shells….too weird. Or not?
We say, give Blue Buffalo cat litter a shot.
But first, a warning! Obviously if anyone in your family or anyone who visits your home has a tree nut allergy, avoid at all costs! But we’re fairly certain you’re hyper-vigilant anyway!
Our team has been using Blue Buffalo cat litter for about a year now in one of our boxes. In another we use our beloved World’s Best Cat Litter and in the other, we use a range of litters we’re always testing out for you guys.
We love the Blue Buffalo cat litter. We really do. We use either the Quick Clumping or Multi-Cat formulas. They also have a pellet which we have not tried.
Okay, we admit, the color was strange at first. And, it’s sometimes hard to see the pee spots on the dark brown background.
It also has a distinct earthy smell to it. It’s not unpleasant but some people have said they don’t like it. We think you get used to it.
Finally, we know some people balk at the price. It’s not cheap. The Blue Buffalo cat litter runs around $14.00 for a 14-lb bag on Amazon. If you’re used to using a natural litter then you are used to paying a bit more. Check your local retailer – we’ve seen it at Petco and Pet Supplies Plus.
But, it definitely lasts a while so that’s something else to take into consideration.
Here’s what we love about this litter:
- The cats like it! (Numero uno reason!)
- This stuff clumps like nobody’s business. It clumps as well as clay litters and that’s hard to find in an all-natural litter.
- We find the odor control to be good as well.
- NO dust. Like, zero.
- Tracking is pretty low.
So, if you’re looking for something new, try it out. Also, all of the walnuts they use in Blue Buffalo cat litter are grown in the good old US of A! We like that!
