Obviously… Guaranteed Odor control
Well, we just got to mention it! Finding a product that promotes outstanding odor control guarantees is exactly what you should be looking for first.
Some cat litter products will advertise having a “Smart Odor Shield”. This technology is also great for neutralizing urine and feces smells for up to 40 days. Other products use activated charcoal and plant extracts to neutralize odors.
Be wary of artificial scents in cat litter, especially if you or your cat have sensitivities.
Some also say that a clumping cat litter is a better choice for odor control over a regular, non-clumping one, as it clumps all of the waste into one easy to remove ball that you can just scoop out.
This is another important characteristic to keep in mind if you don’t want to irritate you or your cat. Plus, you were maybe already dealing with an odor problem, you don’t want a dust problem to worry about! Look for cat litters advertised as at least 99% dust-free to keep pending allergies at bay.
