 LITTER Natural_20lb…in my opinion. I only wish the Kitties Blue agreed with me.

I was contacted by Pioneer Pet and asked if I would like to try their Smart Cat All Natural Clumping Litter. I jumped at the chance. And I have not been disappointed.
It claims to be:

  • No Smell – √
  • Ninety-nine percent dust free – √
  • Chemical, clay & fragrance free – √

Smart Cat litter is all natural. It is made from 100 percent grass. It is super light weight, biodegradable and renewable. The litter absorbs liquids and clumps so quickly (totally encapsulating both urine and feces) that no odors have a chance to release into the air. This is absolutely true. Both before and after scooping, I have put my nose very close to the litter in the box and detected absolutely NO ODOR!

Who could ask for more in cat litter? My cats!

I absolutely don’t get it…only Astrid seems to like this litter; though, I have seen Lisbeth and Calista Jo use it a couple of times. I also caught Calista Jo snacking on it twice. As it is made from only 100 percent U.S.-farmed grass, this can’t hurt her. I did, however, discourage her. She hasn’t returned to munching.

If you have only one or two cats, the 20-pound bag would probably last you all year. When I scoop, absolutely nothing is left but totally clean litter.

If I have any complaints, it would be that it does seem to hold static electricity and stick to the sides of the plastic litter box. And it is more easily thrown from the box by enthusiastic buriers.

Otherwise, Astrid gives this four paws up and I give it two thumbs up. I would recommend everyone give it a try. If your cat(s) like it, you cannot go wrong with this product.

Smart Cat is the creation of Betty Lipscomb, cat behaviorist and founder of Cats International, and her husband John. The goal of their company is to create products that enhance cats’ mental and physical health.

A 20-pound bag of Smart Cat sells for $29.99 on Pioneer Pet’s web-site. Smaller sizes are available. Pioneer Pet currently is having a 15-percent-off sale through April 30, 2015. Use code: Spring15.

Disclaimer: I received one 20-pound bag of Smart Cat free-of-charge to review. I received no monetary compensation, and all opinions expressed are mine alone.

Sounds like an interesting option but no matter what types of new litters we try, we always go back to good old fashioned clumping clay.

It sounds like a great product, but with 15 cats, I stick to the cheap clay litter at Walmart.

That litter sounds pretty great. But knowing Moosey (oh, he of lettuce eating fame), we’re not sure he would not do some snacking! 🙂

We won some of this litter in a giveaway a while back. The mom had high hopes for it. Unfortunately, we didn’t like it much either. We still have a whole bag of it that we haven;t used. The mom is going to give it to the rescue group.

Mum tried once “light” litter made of recycled paper : we both are “enthusiastic buriers” as you say, and we spread it all around, it was a real mess. Mum found then our current litter, a clumping organic cat litter 100% made of feed grade clay, and we all are very happy with it. Purrs

Sounds like great litter! I am always looking for a good dust and fragrance free litter! We will have to look into it. Wonder if it comes in larger sizes… we buy the 40 pound boxes of litter, 3 at a time! MOL!
Sampy sends Astrid 2049872653407985 kisses. He also wants her to know that he is missing her terribly. He is hoping that she is doing well – he knows that the Mom and Dad are away and that she is with the cat sitter. He sends her lots of comforting purrs and hugs and head butts and kisses and nuzzles. We are all sending lots of love!

Interesting ! thank you. v.

I always buy dust free and no perfume but I am afraid that reading this, Katie would probably say no. And I would hate to get her off going to the litterbox by asking her to adjust.

Sammy April 17, 2015 at 6:51 am

Grass? Yep – I’m afraid I’d want to have a munch too as I adore grass……we’d read about this litter on Summer’s blog….not sure it would work out with us BUT thanks for the honest review!!

Hugs, Sammy

We tried it, but it really stuck to the litter pan (like you mentioned) and we wound up staying with the old litter, mainly because it was easier for my human to clean up and we aren’t picky.

Pipo/Minko/MrJackFreckles April 17, 2015 at 1:23 am

Hmmm…sounds like something Minko would try to munch on, too…as he devours any and all grass he can get his teeth on, MOL!
Glad your experience was positive with that litter.
