ökocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 741.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this cat litter!!!!!!!! I LOVE okoCat clumping wood ( and soft step ). These litters are amazing in their ability to suppress odors without all the nasty perfume. It just naturally is absorbed by this product. It lasts forever, as only the wet part clumps and it DOES clump. My cats love it and so do I!! And it's so lightweight!! another big plus. The whole box is so much lighter than clay litter and it lasts longer and works better. Amazing product. Please never quit making this! I chat up people in the grocery store to tell them how wonderful it is. I'll never buy anything else. I use one kind in one pan, and one kind in another, or sometimes I mix them. Amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much tracking! I got a coupon for a free box. I love FREE! Unfortunately it may be the right product for some but for me and my family I will not purchase this litter. The litter box is kept downstairs in the laundry room. We have only 1 cat. Within 24 hours the litter was tracked thru the entire house into every room with an open door. We continued to use it for 2 weeks but switched back to our previous clumping brand because the problem did not resolve. The inconvince of vacuuming 1-2 times a day far out weighed all other good qualities that the product may have had. I was also disappointed how soft the clumping was. They just fell apart when scooped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product but can't find it anywhere. I began ordering Okocat several months ago and love it! I've recommended it to several people. The price on Amazon continued to go up and I finally started looking for other sources. Sadly, I am unable to find this product anywhere. Not in a store, not online. It is out of stock everywhere I turn. I'm just about out of the supply I have on hand and will have to go back to my former clay litter shortly. Is there some sort of manufacturing problem? If so, your customers would love to know. One online retailer I'd set up an auto-ship with said they felt certain if there was a problem that you would let them know and then they'd let their customers know. Any info you'd like to share?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Comparison! Simply The Best Litter Ever. I have 10 rescue cats. Needless to say, litter is an important issue in my home. I have tried every type of litter out there. From clay to wheat, they have all had issues of one kind or another. Then someone recommended I try okocat. I was willing to try just about anything at that point. I absolutely love, love, love this litter. It absorbs well, clumps perfectly and has a fresh and natural smell. It does not have perfumey smell, which can be somewhat sickening. Most of all, my cats love it. I had no problem transitioning them to this litter. I love it because it is better for the environments and better for my cats. I work in a grocery store that carries okocat and even though it is not my department, I can not tell you how many people I have recommended this to that have come back to me thanking me and saying how much they love it. Kudos okocat!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat won't go in anything else Not gonna lie, I tried this litter because the store I worked at had a damaged box that could not be sold. I was running low on a super fancy hinoki wood and green tea, "tea potty" litter so I snagged the free box. I changed out the litter and now my cat won't go in anything else! I'm not complaining. This litter does an absolutely incredible job at odor control and 1 large box lasts about 3 months between my 2 cats! This litter has saved me money, has kept me from going "nose blind", and has saved my back with being so lightweight! The soft wood granules absorb ALL liquid and is easy to scoop and it's flushable! I love this litter and so do my furbabies!

Is this litter safe if ingested? It tends to stick to my cats fur and then they eat it when grooming themselves. Could this be harmful to them or is it ok?

Asked by: Crystal
Great question. Yes our litters are all safe if eaten in small quantities, in fact, it is not unusual for a cat to ingest a few pieces of litter while cleaning themselves. okocat is a non-toxic product, organic and biodegradable, so it is much safer than if a litter like clay were ingested, because of the silica dust and that it turns into a very hard clump. Any litter ingested should just pass through their system. We encourage you to monitor you cat closely and if you feel they are eating large quantities of the litter, we recommend consulting a vet for the proper course of action as the cat’s digestive tract could become impacted from eating too much litter.

I really like this litter but it tracks from one end of the house to the other. Do you have any suggestions on how to reduce tracking? I am using a covered box but it seems to stick to my cats,

Asked by: Cathy137
I have this problem too. The litter box is very large, there are litter mats the length of the laundry room between the box and my carpet, and the darned stuff still literally tracks through the house. Even with the mats the laundry room looks as if there's been a snow storm regardless that I am sweeping up at least twice a day. My solution is simple - I'm never buying this litter again!

Is this litter ok for ferrets?

Asked by: Erika
We do not recommend using a clumping litter for ferrets as they have a tendency to snorkel stuff through their noses. We recommend using a non-clumping paper litter instead like the okocat Dust Free paper litter or carefresh natural paper bedding.

I am sold on the litter but am finding that the clumps fall apart when I try to sift. Then little wet clumps are amongst the clean litter .. what can I do differently to minimize the breaking up of the clumps? If I pitch whole scoop, too much waste

Asked by: rooney
If possible, let the wet clumps "dry" a bit first or harden before scooping them out. This should help keep the clump together while sifting.

I am trying this litter but it's hard to sift with my scooper. Do you use a certain scooper? Cats are hesitant to use but are just starting to see in there.

Asked by: Becky
Use a scoop with larger holes or a "pellet" scoop. Most pet stores should have one.

Product Information

Free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics, its soft ground pellets have been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X their weight in liquid and control odor for 7 days. Its superior clumping and absorption power forms firm clumps and controls odors for 7 days. ökocat litter is biodegradable for flushable disposal, and is naturally lightweight. All litters come in a smart, compostable package with an easy-to-carry handle and pour spout.  

Better for You, Your Cat and the Environment

ökocat  provides a naturally healthier environment for you and your cat, and it’s better for the planet because we use only 100% sustainable and renewable wood fibers as found in nature. It starts with naturally fallen timber or unused lumber materials that would otherwise go to waste. The wood is then chipped and pelleted along with proprietary plant-based binders that improve the finished product.
Our fiber supply is sourced through suppliers that comply with policies set forth by the Forest Stewardship Council, Sustainable Forestry Initiative or the Forestry Preservation and Forestry Promotion Act,  and consists of a variety of softwood trees including but not limited to spruce, pine and fir. 
Our sustainable litters come from the earth, and can be returned to the earth and won’t sit in landfills for 100+ years like clay litters do. Plus, the packaging is compostable as well.

Biodegradable and Flushable

ökocat litters are 100% biodegradable. The litter degrades quickly and cleanly unlike clay litters  that sit in landfills for years. The litter is also completely compostable, although we do not recommend putting used litter feces clumps in your compost bin.
ökocat litters are flushable in small quantities. We recommend that if you intend to flush your cat's waste, scoop carefully and avoid putting extra, loose litter into your toilet. You should also keep in mind the water or septic system you are on when making the decision to flush or not to flush. California  has a referendum in place for protection of the sea lion population, as cat feces can harm sea lions. Please be aware of any local restrictions you may be subject to.

Binds and Traps Odors

ökocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives, scents, dyes or other harmful materials. The capillary system of natural wood fiber uniquely absorbs odors leaving  a very subtle natural wood scent.
Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.
  1. Pour ökocat litter into a clean litter box to the depth of 2-3”.
  2. Scoop waste daily and refill as needed to maintain the desired depth. Base litter lasts 4-6 weeks.
  3. Dispose of waste in an environmentally-friendly waste bag or flush*.

Transitioning Your Cat to a New Litter

  1. Fill the empty litter box with 2” of ökocat and pour only 1” of your existing litter on top. Let your cat mix the litters as they are used.
  2. When it’s time to clean the box entirely, continue to fill with more ökocat and less of the old litter until your cat has adjusted to the change.
  3. When your cat is used to the new litter dispose of your old litter appropriately, or donate it to a local shelter.

*ökocat is made from 100% biodegradable natural fiber, flushable and septic safe when flushed as recommended.

To responsibly FLUSH your biodegradable litter, please take care to follow the instructions below.

  1. Scoop waste clump and shake off excess litter*
  2. DUMP one CLUMP in toilet at a time, then flush (no larger than the size of a baseball)
  3. Repeat for more clumps

DO NOT empty litter box into your toilet or flush more than one clump at a time. 

*Designed to flush in well-maintained systems. Flush minimal extra litter and one doody at a time. The state of California discourages flushing feces in toilets.
