I'm a multi-cat owner and caretaker with close to 50 years' experience as an adult - both with my own household and over a dozen years with cat care at two veterinary hospitals and a large SPCA facility. Consequently, I've had opportunities to work with countless different brands and types of litter and have a broad range of comparisons - and feel as though I'm fairly well qualified to pass along my opinions on the subject. :-)

For the past several years, I've had six house cat who live solely indoors.... and two kennels/stables/outdoor combo cats who are gainfully employed in the profession of Rodent Control Officers. However, the RCO's also have litter boxes available for those occasions when weather requires that they confined to the indoor kennel area - so we have a total of eight kitties requiring litter.

We had been using a "high end" brand of litter that's available only in large pet stores and online purchase..... so we were't supplying the cats with cheaper brands that gave us low expectations to begin with. It's decent stuff, and I had no real complaints with it. So, I really have no idea why I decided to suddenly try Boxiecat, other than wondering why the manufacturers felt it was worth the high price. It was, quite honestly, a whim.

I set up one indoor cat box with the Boxiecat and left the other box "as is". (I have only two indoor boxes; however, they're from a small US manufacturer and are absolutely enormous and definitely adequate for 3 cats each).

The Boxiecat was the immediate litter of choice for ALL of the cats! I'm not certain exactly what attracts them. It's definitely much softer on their little feet, so that's likely part of it. On MY part, I've found that it's easier to clean than any other litter I can recall - and there is conspicuously
less odor. And the need to put additional litter in the box as the days pass has been significantly reduced.

For me and my cats, it's proving to be worth the extra money. And having to use less of it than my previous brand will be reducing the over-all cost, thus making the price increase relatively minimal. I'm VERY glad that I tried it!

I moved to a small apartment. My cats used to have a laundry room, now they have the corner of the great room. I was on the lightweight litter kick but it was so dusty and got so gummy and tracked like crazy. So I did a little research. So far, I have not done a full litter change in 28 days, just added a little more. It has stayed the same consistency, no gummy or change. There is no ammonia smell, ever! It clumps well and it seems to not track as badly as others. 5 paws so far!!

Used this cat litter in one box and Tidy cat in the other to see which the cats liked better. Boxie litter won, paws down. Even stranger, they waited in line or used the box two at a time.

The only con is that this litter seems weightier than the normal Tidy Cat litter. On that note, the price for Boxie is comparable to Tidy Cat Lightweight with only a few cents difference. The 18 pound lightweight fills the same amount of space as the 28 lb Boxie litter.

It's a great product, but it is heavy.

I thought I would give this litter a try since it has such high reviews. I was hoping for the elusive "perfect" cat litter that I am always searching for.
First the good...
This does clump very well. It is probably the easiest litter to scoop I have used (and I have used quite a few). There is no strange smell to the litter itself. There does seem to be less tracking than with Dr. Elsey's (which is what I usually use.).
Then the not-great...
This litter is definitely NOT dust-free (or even 99%). There was a noticeable cloud of dust that puffs up as I dumped the litter into the box. The individual grains are smaller and lighter-weight than typical litter and the cat seems to have it all pushed to the back of the litter box after only a few uses. The odor control was not as good as Dr. Elsey's, even with the activated carbon crystals added in. The price for a bag of litter is expensive.

This is definitely a good, high quality litter. However, for the price I would stick with Dr. Elsey's every time. This doesn't seem to last any longer and the stronger clumping power and less tracking are not worth the extra cost to me.

We have been using the World's Best Cat Litter for some time and loved it due to its flushability, however, it was no longer cutting it for our cats as far as smell control. I did lots of research and decided on Boxiecat. It is AMAZING! It uses minimal litter to clump around wastes. And it also does not allow for urine to flow to the bottom of the box like other litters---meaning less mess. On of our cats loves to pee on the edge of the box. Our old litter would cake to the side but not Boxiecat. AND it controls odor amazingly. We have 2 cats and When we first got it, I waited a few days to scoop just to test it and I couldnt even smell that we had cats! It was AMAZING! Highly Recommend

Pros:
No fragrances, with good odor control. It does not handle stinky poos well, but I'm not sure any litter can.
Fast clumping. They weren't joking about this, but if you have cats like mine who only want to pee in one spot, it can still get to the bottom of the pan.

Cons:
It is costly if you have multiple cats. I have five cats with four boxes, so buying this makes my wallet cry.
Dust! I've yet to find a litter that is truly 99.9% dust free like they advertise. But once you get past the initial pour, there is far less dust than most clay based brands.

Lastly, tracking. This isn't quite a con as I never believed it would track less. I sweep up a palm full of litter twice a day, and that doesn't include what the litter mats catch. This could vary from cat to cat though.

Overall I am pleased and will continue to purchase this litter for now, though I can't find the larger size on Amazon these days.

I was very happy with the Boxiecat Extra Strength litter. It clumps really well. We have four cats and although there are 6 boxes around, the box with the Boxiecat seems to be the winner. the cats prefer using the box with that litter. It does not stick to the bottom of the box as some other litters did, which was very important to me. The smell is not offensive and is really non existent

I've been using Precious Cat for years in my litter robots, but recently I've been having major issues with it not clumping well. I have 10 cats, so I really don't have the time to clean out my litter robots every day when the litter sticks to the lining and makes a mess. I've been on the hunt for a high quality natural litter that clumps better and I'm so glad I tried this litter. It's working perfectly in my litter robots and It seems to be tracking less, too. I feed raw so waste odor is never an issue for me. This litter is worth the price for sure.

Very fine sand granules. Tracked everywhere, despite the indoor/outdoor rug we have in the utility room. I have two cats. One would get the wet sand stuck to his foot and would track it all around the house. Little white footprints through the house. I had to wet it to get it off the floor. YUK!

Amazon seems to have not figured out how to send the litter bags which are pretty heavy. It’s not the first time I’ve received a box in pretty bad shape. This shipment contained 3 smaller items that luckily and amazingly stayed in the box. Otherwise I’ve been using boxiecat for years. It really is the best litter for our needs.
