5 Best Natural Cat Litters of 2022

Clay has dominated the cat litter market for the better part of a century, but that monopoly is weakening as cat parents become more informed on the health risks and environmental price of clay cat litter (which we’ll explore below). Natural cat litters have burst on to the scene in recent years, offering many of the perks of clay—clumping, odor control—without the serious drawbacks. In this article, we’ll give you our picks for the best natural cat litters on the market today and explain why so many cat parents are choosing these safer and more eco-friendly options.

Here at tuft + paw, we are cat experts. Over the last couple years, we’ve spent countless hours determining which litter features are most important to cats and cat parents alike. To compile this list, we consulted cat behaviorist Nicole Van Andel, veterinarian Megan Teiber, and hundreds of customer reviews to figure out which natural litters provide the best all-around experience.

Tip: If you want a big picture view on selecting a cat litter before you dive into the details, our article on how to choose the right litter or our ultimate guide to different types of cat litter could be helpful.
