We Switched to World's Best Cat Litter After a Horror Story With Arm & Hammer



I have Been Using World's Best Cat Litter Since I adopted my rescue Maine Coon Mix almost 2 years ago. When I first brought my (approximately) 1 year old adopted ginger & white boy home from the shelter where I volunteer, I had a litter box all set up for him with some of the leftover Arm & Hammer clumping litter I'd always used for my previous two shorthair tabby girls, no problem.

My new boy Figaro used the box just fine, but was quite a "digger" after doing his thing. He has long hairs between his toes, and within a few days, however, I discovered he'd gotten a small clump of litter stuck in the middle of one paw and it had hardened like cement.

He couldn't get it out, and neither could I, even after soaking his paw in warm water. We ended up at the animal hospital ER where they had to sedate him, remove the clump, and he had to have a small laceration in his paw stitched up!

That really scared me (and $472 later!!), so we don't use any hard clumping litter at ALL. World's Best clumps well enough enough to scoop, but it doesn't harden and get stuck in Figaro's paws.

It does track more than I would like, and has a very little bit of dust; but he and the second medium haired girl I adopted both use it fine and no one gets hurt.

Not the greatest at odor control, but I add a tiny sprinkle of Arm & Hammer litter deodorizer or just some plain baking soda over it which helps--and both cats are using just one jumbo box. I use the red bag multi-cat version and mix in a little bit of their "lavender" (purple bag), which isn't really very lavender but has a pleasing scent that the cats don't seem to mind.

I completely change and thoroughly wash the box with white vinegar mixed with a little scent-free dish liquid each week, so we do go through a lot of litter. Thankfully, as we live up 3 flights of stairs, I can get it delivered and brought all the way up by a local grocery delivery service.
