We all know that our pets are special members of the family – which means we only want the best for them. Next time you’re shopping for your feline friend, try one of these natural litters. They’re better not only for them, but for you as well. 


No chemicals. No dust. How does that sound? This brand of natural kitty litter is made from sustainable material – wood fiber – which immediately absorbs liquid, preventing the development of chemicals that cause unpleasant odors. Just like many traditional litter formulas, this one also forms easy-to-scoop clumps, without using chemicals to enhance that process. Further, it’s 99% dust-free, keeping your home fresh and clean.


This brand offers two natural litters – one made from crushed walnut shells and the other from processed corn cobs. Both are fragrance-free, easy to clean, and highly absorbent. In fact, the corn cob variety absorbs two times as much liquid as traditional litters. These are completely chemical-free and particularly good for people who struggle with allergies.

sWheat Scoop

Many people particularly love this brand because it is flushable, making for super easy cleanup. It’s made from wheat and ultra-absorbent corn, which means it is biodegradable and totally safe for the home, and most importantly, your feline friend. There are no chemicals or perfumes added.

Feline Pine

Pine has been used for litter boxes since 1992, when it was discovered that Southern yellow pine was incredibly good at absorbing liquid and neutralizing odors. Today, Feline Pine has leveraged those qualities into an incredible, biodegradable litter formula with both clumping and non-clumping varieties. They are committed to using sustainable materials, which is why they never cut down trees for their products, but instead use kiln-dried shavings left over from the lumber industry.

Naturally Fresh

This brand knows that you only want the best for your “wild child.” They understand how important our fur babies are, and with that in mind have created a variety of litters made from walnut shells to ensure your kitties have the cleanest, most natural environment. It’s eco-friendly, biodegradable, low-dust, and three times as absorbent as traditional clay-based litters. This makes for a fresher-smelling home and a happier cat.
