hepper-cat-paw-dividerIf you are looking for organic cat litter, CatSpot Litter might be the right option for you. Indeed, this product was created with 100% coconut, no more and no less. It turns out moreover that coconut is remarkably absorbent and an ideal choice for fighting odors. Plus, you can even compost soiled litter, making it a great choice for the environment. However, the texture of this product is not immune to certain little feline terrors, who may take pleasure in spreading the contents everywhere.

CatSpot Is a Compostable Cat Litter

CatSpot cat litter is made from a single ingredient: coconut. It is therefore completely biodegradable, organic, and does not contain toxins that could be harmful to more sensitive cats. In addition, it is apparently the only fully organic litter available on the market today, which makes this product very attractive to buyers concerned about their environmental footprint. So, unlike cat litter boxes made from clays and crystals, you can compost CatSpot litter without fear after your feline companion has used it for their natural needs.

CatSpot Litter Is the Lightest Cat Litter on the Market

Because coconut coir is a lightweight product, it’s not hard to understand that CatSpot Litter is lighter than the other products offered. So, if you’re used to buying 20-pound bags of clay litter, you’ll be surprised to learn that a mere 5-pound bag of CatSpot will last you as long, if not longer, than your usual heavy litter. Typically, a CatSpot litter bag is a one-month supply for a cat, which makes it more affordable.

CatSpot Litter Is Easy on Allergies

Some cats develop allergies to their litter box, mainly from the dust it gives off and the chemical additives like perfumes added to it. Kittens and older cats are more likely to develop allergies. Since CatSpot litter only has one ingredient, your cat (or you!) is less likely to develop allergies to it. Note: If you notice certain unusual behaviors in your feline (for example, if they start avoiding their litter box and defecating in other areas) or redness, excessive grooming, or itching, these may be symptoms of allergies. You will then have to consult your veterinarian to determine the possible cause of the allergy and change his litter if it is the cause.

Can you flush CatSpot litter in your toilet?

Yes, you can flush CatSpot with no problem, even if you have a septic tank. There are no harmful clumping agents or clay in this litter that could clog your plumbing. However, CatSpot recommends flushing only solid waste and not urine that has been absorbed by the coconut.

What is the odor control level of CatSpot litter?

According to the manufacturer, you shouldn’t have to change the litter box for at least 14 days of use. However, if you have more than one cat, you will inevitably need to change your litter box after about a week of use. Most buyers noticed urine odors after a week, even with just one cat.

Is CatSpot a clumping litter?

There are two options when purchasing CatSpot Litter: clumping and non-clumping. The non-clumping version comes at a lower price, but the new clumping version doesn’t seem to be garnering many positive reviews at the time of writing.

Is CatSpot the right litter for a kitten?

Yes, this litter box is safe for your potty-training felines because the light, dust-free texture won’t hurt your kitten. Besides, according to the manufacturer, it is also safe for all your other pets, whether it is a dog, a rabbit, or a hamster.

What the Users Say

In order to paint a fair picture of CatSpot litter, we have researched the opinions of other buyers, read various reviews, and paid attention to forum discussions. Here is what comes up most often:

  • The price of this litter is very high when compared to other products available on the market. While we don’t have to compare the ratio of weight to price (given that CatSpot litter is extremely light), the fact remains that a good number of users have to spend a lot more per month than they anticipated in their budget. The cost is even higher if you have more than one cat in your household.

However, it is possible to buy the product directly on the merchant’s website. This offers various purchase options to save on the price of each bag; you can for example opt for a monthly subscription or bulk purchase.

  • In general, cats have no problem getting used to this litter.
  • Ammonia smells start to be felt after about a week, despite the manufacturer’s assertion that you won’t have to change the litter box more than twice a month. But it also depends on how many cats you have in your household.
  • Over 60% of buyers gave this product 5 out of 5 stars, demonstrating an overall positive response to CatSpot Litter.

So, is the purchase of the CatSpot litter worth it, despite the hefty price tag? It mostly depends on your priorities and what you value when buying kitty litter. If you are looking for benefits like hypoallergenic properties, 100% natural and organic material that you can use as compost in your garden, and good odor absorption, then this litter is a good option for you. Besides, if you still have some doubts, you can always buy a single bag to try it out for yourself and decide if the cost is worth it.
