Have you seen Blue Buffalo‘s Blue Naturally Fresh walnut shell litter? Does it look too bizarre to try? I mean it’s dark brown litter made of walnut shells….too weird. Or not?
I say, give it a shot.
I’ve been using it for about a year now in one of our boxes. In another I use my beloved World’s Best Cat Litter and in the other, I use a range of litters I’m testing out for you guys.
I love the Blue Buffalo walnut shell litter. I really do. I use either the Quick Clumping or Multi-Cat formulas. They also have a pellet which I have not tried.
I’ll 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 to me but some people have said they don’t like it. I think you get used to it.
Finally, I know some people balk at the price. It’s not cheap. The 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 – I’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 I love about this litter:
1. The cats like it! (Numero uno reason!)
2. 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.
3. I find the odor control to be good as well.
4. NO dust. I mean zero.
5. Tracking is pretty low.
So, if you’re looking for something new, check it out. Also, all of the walnuts they use are grown in the good old US of A! We like that!
Readers! Has anyone tried this litter? What did you think? Leave a note in the comments below!
One warning, obviously if anyone in your family has a tree nut allergy, avoid at all costs! But I’m fairly certain you’re hyper-vigilant anyway!
