This month's reviewed product is Weruva natural clumping cat litter.
Disclaimer: We were provided one free bag of litter in exchange for an honest review. We did not receive any compensation, except for the product.
The good: It is clumping, sustainable sourced wood, almost no dust
The not-so-good: I didn't realize until opening the bag that this is a pelleted litter. Not all cats will use this.
The litter looks a little like rabbit food pellets. It smelled slightly of wood. The bag said it would last 10 days with three cats.
First, I put some litter in a separate box, near our most-used litter box.
I waited four days. All that happened was that Ringo stepped in it once.
So then I sprinkled some in one corner of the most-used box and waited. Two days later, the cats had stopped using that corner of the box, and worse, they were using that box far less.
This stopped my test of the litter. The last thing I needed was for the cats to start peeing in other places.
I am disappointed that the cats would not even try this litter. However, I went back and looked at the description on Chewy's website. Nowhere did it state that this litter is pellets, and the photo isn't large enough to see the litter clearly. To be fair, I can't blame Chewy on this--I checked Weruva's website and the description was identical. I hope the manufacturer will include this information for cat owners. While I am all for litter made sustainably, it does me no good if a cat who is used to a fine litter product won't use it.
