Today’s challenge for me is this: can I talk about cat litter without making too many poo jokes? The temptation is real, my friend and my ability to resist temptation is…not great.
Despite the fact that it just gets crapped all over, making an informed decision about which litter your cat will crap all over is pretty important. Asthma cats, being the sensitive creatures that they are, need to do their stinky business in a safe, dust-free place. Choosing the best clumping litter will make your nasty clean up job more pleasant, plus the planet will thank you for being kind and choosing natural.
We’re looking for a win-win-win solution here and I’m pretty sure I’ve found it.

Their unique, scientific approach to developing pet products focuses on providing solutions that are good for pets, good for their humans and good for the environment.
Why Choosing The Right Litter is Important
Back in the bad old days, cat litter was made of clay, which is super absorbent and forms solid clumps, but it’s terrible for cats and terrible for the environment.
Clay litter is really freaking dusty in the worst possible way. The silica dust in clay litter is a known carcinogen – so even if your cat isn’t wheezy, you’ll want to keep this dust well out of his sniffer for that reason alone. Can you imagine having a face full of carcinogenic dust while you’re…trying to relax? Doesn’t sound nice at all.
The clay used to make litter is strip-mined, which is terrible news for the environment as it involves massive amounts of rock and topsoil being moved to get to the clay underneath. This impacts wildlife, waterways and human populations in bad ways. This article from Green Living Ideas goes into scary detail about the process, if you’d like more information.
Oh, and clay litter sticks around in landfill FOREVER. That’s super bad.
Why is This The World’s Best Cat Litter?
First of all, it’s not made of clay. World’s Best Cat Litter was already pretty good, but their new Zero Mess formula is better. Is that even possible?
Zero mess gets bonus points for being lightweight enough to carry up the stairs without breaking your back and gentle on paws, which is especially great for soft indoor pussyfoot types.
What’s Good About it?
So many things. A lot of time and research has gone into developing this product and as far as I’m concerned it really is the world’s best.
- Made from naturally absorbent corn and plant materials.
- Available in 6, 12 & 24 lb bags that last ages. A 24 lb bag should last one cat 120 days!
- Specially formulated for easy clean-up. Tight clumping, no chisel required.
- 99% dust free and perfectly safe for asthma cats.
- Odour control at its best – smells stay trapped inside the litter.
- Flushable – septic safe.
- People, pet and planet safe. Win-win-win. Again.
Really – nothing. I guess if you want to get nitpicky you could say that it’s a bit expensive for what it is, but this stuff lasts AGES. Only having to buy one bag of litter every 120 days sounds like a good deal to me.
There’s also the slightly questionable availability in some parts of the world (like this one) but thanks to the world wide interwebs and home delivery even that’s not a problem. In fact, it’s probably better as it means I don’t have to get off my couch. Hooray for
laziness the internet.
Does Sparrow Approve?
Sparrow is usually pretty picky about his stuff, but when it comes to litter it doesn’t seem to matter too much to him. I like the fact that he can dig around as much as he likes in this stuff and it’s not going to get up his nose and on the occasions that he likes to taste test his litter (he’s a weird cat, don’t judge) World’s Best is perfectly safe. Not ideal and probably not smart on his part, but safe.
All in all, World’s Best Cat Litter Zero Mess truly lives up to its name. And I actually managed to get through a litter review without making any unsavoury puns. Just goes to show, there’s a first time for everything.
