Recently, the fine folks at World's Best Cat Litter asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their new line of litter, and I jumped at the chance. I still love the idea of their litter. The new line is called Advanced Natural, and it comes in original or pine scent.
Since the new line, Advanced Natural, is made from a blend of plant fibers, maybe Theo won't eat it! Nahum is the one in the family that loves to eat plants and greens, Theo generally leaves the plants alone.
My 6 pound bag arrived and I setup a special litter box for the trial. I followed the directions on the bag and mixed some of the new litter in with a little of the old litter. After a few days, I added the rest of the bag of the new litter.
Willow, an informed consumer, reads over the bag to see what she's trying out.
The litter material itself is aesthetically pleasing, I really like the darker brown color. It's lightweight like the corn-based litter but it has a much nicer smell. The corn-based litter had a strong corn-like smell, this stuff has an earthy smell, but it's not overwhelming. And like the corn-based litter, the Advanced Natural doesn't create much dust.

Nahum is always the first to try out new litter! He loves being the first to pee in fresh litter.
It doesn't matter the size of the box, he'll make it work! Thankfully, he remembered to squat, so everything worked out just fine. Willow tried it next, and sadly, she didn't remember to squat! I'll spare you the picture of Willow peeing over the side of the litter box!
The Advanced Natural litter clumps well and the clumps held together well when being scooped. So far, it has done well to absorb odors, which is always important. Thus far in the new litter trial, I am quite pleased. With that said, there has been one problem so far...
Once again Theo has decided that the litter is yummy to eat! Theo!! After I mixed in some of the old clay litter, he didn't return to eat anymore. Hopefully after time he will associate the plant based litter with doing his business rather than having a snack.
After this bag runs out, I'll buy a bigger bag to fill up one of the big litter boxes and see how things go. I really do like the idea of no dust, which will help Willow (she has asthma). My biggest challenge will be in getting Theo to not eat it!
