ökocat Natural Wood Clumping for Long Hair Breeds is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 140.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best litter available even for short haired cats This litter has no scent, completely covers the scent of any pet waste (so long as your cat covers their waste), has extremely low dust, and barely tracks at all. I have tried every higher end litter on the market and this is the winner by far! The packaging is terrible if you have it shipped and the only scoop I have found that works to filter out the large pellets is by a company called catit. Even with these two draw backs it still gets five stars from me because it is such an effective product! I should mention we have to keep the litter box in our bedroom and you would never know there was a litter box in the room when using this litter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my 19-year-old senior kitty! I've been using ökocat Natural Wood Clumping for Long Hair Breeds for years! I tried it when they first got it in at a local specialty pet store and it's perfect for my senior kitty Thumper who had PU surgery (google it), which results in a very sensitive urinary system. There are no harmful chemicals in ökocat that could cause irritation, and it also means less tracking since the larger pellets aren't as likely to get caught in his paws. I love that it clumps because it makes cleaning up the litter boxes so much easier and the fact that it's biodegradable is a huge plus. As a bonus, my big kitty Nemo loves sleeping on the boxes of litter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! We have a long hair, Mandy, and a short hair, Hailey. We have tried SO many brands, and always had the same problem......litter all over the floor and on their feet, especially Mandy. It didn't make a difference whether or not the litter was pieces or pellets, clay or pine; it was a mess! I stated searcing, and came across Ökocat for long hair breeds, and the rest as they say, was history! I love it, as we went from vacuuming each time, to hardly needing to. Oh yes, no oder to worry about and it clumps. Ökocat has the philosophy and beliefs of going "green" and that is awesome! You can't go wrong with this litter! Thank you, Ökocat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best..Litter..EVER! My husband and I love the idea behind this litter, eco-friendly and natural. Our Norwegian, Homer, is VERY furry. Finding a flush-able litter that doesn't stick to him or track all over has been a challenge (we live in a 2nd flr apartment and all share one tiny bathroom). This stuff is amazing, it clumps perfectly, breaks down quickly in the toilet and the odor control is very good. When it was out of stock for a few weeks we realized how dependent we had become on it! I also like that my cat doesn't have to eat a ton of litter to clean himself, it's heavy enough that it falls off before he leaves the box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting, great price I finally decided to try this litter out for our 20+ y.o cat, when a well timed coupon coincided with a store discount, and I was able to get the box for under $2. The litter is great so far- long lasting, the clumping is great, the odor resistance is a plus, and the cat seems to... be having a higher rate of success... of getting in the box since we switched. I will definitely continue to go OKOCat now, but I think moving forward I would probably get one of the other lines they offer that has smaller pellets- The larger pellets in this long hair blend are TOO big to sift out with either of my litter scoops-- I end up throwing out some fresh litter as a result-- only complaint.

When does Ökocat plan to restock reasonable retailers with the long hair litter? It’s online for $50-$60 per 20.2 pound box as of 6/8/18. Neither the city I just moved from had it (4years) nor does this one. My cats and I love it but not for $60/box! 

Asked by: Apollo and Stewie
We apologize greatly for the fluctuation in price. We are working on increasing our supply now and will be able to ship more to all retailers very soon.

Please tell me the Long Hair isn't being discontinued at retailers! Your site charges quite a bit for shipping to me compared to what I was paying before.

Asked by: Laura
No, it is not being discontinued. We have just been very short of supply due to higher than expected sales. We are working on getting more and will be shipping more again very soon to retailers. Thank you for your patience!

What do you recommend for a scoop? I'm finding a generic scoop can't sift the pellets because the slots are too small.

Asked by: Cakes
We recommend using a "pellet" scoop with wider slots. You can purchase one at your local pet store or online on Amazon or

Having trouble getting cats to use it. Any suggestions? My 2 male Maine Coons (age 2) won't use the box with okocat (even though it is in one of their original boxes). I set it up next to their box with their usual crystal litter. 

Asked by: Tigercat06
The reason they are not using the box may be because of the difference in texture between their old litter and okocat with the larger pellets. We recommend transitioning slowly by putting okocat on the bottom and their usual litter on the top. There are specific instructions on the side of the okocat box. Here is also a short article on it

If your product for long hair cats completely dust free and competely safe for dry chapped paws?

Asked by: Pergo
The okocat Clumping for Long Hair Breeds is 99% dust free, especially because it is the larger pellets that are not ground up. However, we recommend the okocat Soft Step for cats with sensitive paws. This has a much finer texture, with slightly more dust, but still very little.

Product Information

ökocat Natural Wood Clumping Cat Litter for Long Hair Breeds offers superior performance in a natural pellet designed to keep litter in the box and not stuck in your cat’s fur. Free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics, our ground pellets are lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X their weight in liquid. Their 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.
