I switched over to World’s Best about 2 months ago because Naturally Fresh wasn’t clumping as well as it used to. It was actually recommended by my sister who has been using it for about a year (if not more). The only difference is that she uses the multi-cat and not the single cat.
Similar to the other review, let’s break down what we’re looking for:
- Minimal Dust
- Clumps Well
- Hides the smell of urine & faeces
- Doesn’t get stuck in/on our cat’s paws
- Is it flushable
I actually don’t think I’ve noticed any dust with World’s Best and I’m very pleasantly surprised with it. Even when we pour the bag out neither of us have noticed the abundance of dust that tends to come from the clay-based litter. When Beau comes out of the litter box we haven’t noticed anything on his paws, but this may be only because the litter is a lighter colour than Naturally Fresh is.
I’m so happy with how well World’s Best clumps. Like, WOW! Beau has been peeing a lot more (ever since his Double Cystotomy and PU Surgery) so clumping is getting a lot more important. World’s Best clumps very quickly, and you don’t have to wait very long before scooping up your little ones… waste… The pieces are easily breakable if you want to cut it into little pieces to ensure nothing gets stuck in the toilet. As soon as you put World’s Best into the toilet it breaks down almost instantly, which feels like a science experiment to watch. My favourite thing about the way World’s Best clumps is that it doesn’t leave any litter stuck to the bottom of the litter box. I know with other brands we sometimes had to scrape the bottom or when it was our monthly cleaning time (when we fully empty the litter box and clean it out) we would spend a good while hosing down the bottom to make sure nothing was left over. I don’t think we’re going to have this issue with any of the World’s Best litters… yay!
I will admit, World’s Best Single Cat isn’t my favourite smelling litter. Naturally Fresh Alpine Fresh definitely has it beat, but I do know that World’s Best makes a Lavender Scented litter that we’re debating trying out. Number 2’s don’t really get covered by this litter, but it’s much more manageable when we got a hooded litter box for Beau. This is definitely dependant on your preference, and dependant on how often/quick you clean your litter boxes. Since our main litter box is in my office, it’s been a bit of an issue for me. Nothing is worse than Beau deciding to poop while I’m on the phone with a client or midway through writing a difficult lesson plan. Although I will say that the Multi-Cat does a much better job of odour control somehow (but I will be reviewing that on a later day.)
Tracking & Getting Stuck in Paws
Honestly, I haven’t noticed much tracking or getting stuck in Beau’s paws. It’s very, very minimal at most. Again, it doesn’t seem to cover Beau’s paws and after he uses the litter box there’s usually a bit of litter that doesn’t make it far into the house.
All in all, I think World’s Best Single Cat deserves a 4.5/5. It’s a great improvement from the other litter we were using, which is surprising to us since we’ve used that one for about 3 years with no complaints. Who knew that there was a better litter out there?
So pet parents, what litter do you use? Do you have one that may top World’s Best? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll try it out!
