    Promising review: "This leaves not even a trace of a smell. I have three cats in a two-bedroom apartment. I have tried everything! This is insanely good stuff! Doesn’t track! Nothing stinks.

    Promising review: "I have two cats and would not consider using anything else. I am not the greatest at cleaning the litter box every day or so and this litter solves that problem. I am almost 80 years old and had cats all my life so you know that by now I've tried every litter there is." —Carolyn Doyle

    Get it from Amazon for $9.54 (available in four scents).

    Promising review: "When I started using this I was immediately aware that even a few inches from the litter box there was no smell. It does exactly what it promises, clumps and dumps with no dust or fall out. That's my opinion. But the last word would have to go to my cat who uses it and is in a better position to comment...unfortunately she cannot but I will take her continued usage as a compliment and recommend this on her behalf." —Lew Troop

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    4. Purina Tidy Cats clumping litter to create easy-to-scoop clumps and provide unscented, around-the-clock odor control because nobody has time for a smelly litterbox.

    Product that creates tight clumps for easy scooping

    Promising review: "What a difference changing litter makes! I am new to cat ownership and was really questioning my recent rescue of four kittens. This has been a game-changer. I had to wait until they were old enough to switch to clumping litter, and once I did, I found Tidy Cats. It scoops so easy for urine and poo. And it really does absorb the odor. I'm a self-proclaimed neat freak and I detest smelly smells. Since finding this litter, we've decided to adopt all 4 of these babies instead of just fostering them. It made THAT much of a difference in the smell and effort to clean up after them. Thanks, Tidy Cats. This little litter of misfits thank you too. They're on to live their best life, smelly-cat free!" —Laura Carson

    Get it from Amazon for $17.14 (available in three styles and five sizes).

    5. Purina Tidy Cats LightWeight litter with Glade because not only will it fight odors for two weeks, it'll give off a fresh scent you and your cat will love.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98 (available in three sizes and four scents).

    6. Nature's Miracle clumping litter so your cat enjoy a fresh linen fragrance and easily scoop up anything they leave behind.

    Super absorbent product for homes with multiple cats

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the best cat litter for my home. After trying so many others, this is only one that has worked many cats. I help rescue cats and re-home them and the smell is unbearable. I feel like I can breathe now. The cats also seem to really like it. The clumping helps so much with cleaning out the boxes. Thank you so much for making this litter." —Isa

    Get it from Amazon for $12.93+ (also available in two sizes and three styles).

    7. PetSafe ScoopFree cat litter with a 99% dust-free formula that'll control odor and create less of a mess every time nature calls your cat.

    Reviewer image of blue litter that's 99% dust-free

    Promising review: "This cat litter has changed my life! It's seriously magic! You only have to scoop out the poop. Somehow it absorbs the pee but doesn't stink! HOW DOES IT NOT STINK?!?! I mean, it's cat pee for heaven's sake! And I don't even change it for three weeks! I just scoop out the poop and stir the crystals. I don't know what kind of sorcery these cat litter people use, but I am obsessed! I use this litter in a regular litter box but am getting ready to switch to the fancy electric one that this litter is actually made for. But even in a plain, old-fashioned litter box, this stuff rocks! (No pun intended.)" —Mikara

    Get it from Amazon for $14.53 (or Subscribe & Save for $13.80).

    8. Purina Tidy Cats Breeze litter system refills for anybody who likes a low maintenance litter box. Each refill lasts up to a month.

    Refill for Breeze system with refills for litter pellets and cat pads

    It comes with litter pellets and cat pads.

    Promising review: "I got tired of stepping on cat litter. No matter how many times I swept it up, it kept getting kicked out of my cat's litter box. I saw this and winced at the initial price, but it was money well spent. No more odor, no more cat litter all over the place, and it's super easy to clean. You only have to change out the pellets once a month and change out the pad once a week. I scoop out the little poops every day to keep it cleaned out. Takes about 30 seconds. Love this so much!" —RugbyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $21.41 (or Subscribe & Save for $20.34).

    9. Purina Tidy Cats Free & Clean cat litter to use if your cats prefer a fragrance- and dye-free litter box. It's made with activated charcoal to absorb odors.

    Promising review: "This is the best cat litter we have ever used BECAUSE it is unscented. The charcoal in it absorbs odors and you don't have to endure a gross, fake added scent which is in most other litters, mixed with cat potty odors. No smell at all!! We have two cats using one litter box but we do clean it out every one to two days." —sheryl

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four sizes).

    10. A cat litter made with natural wood because it stops odor before it starts and is plant-based.

    Reviewer image of litter made from wood

    Promising review: "We've tried several types of litters for our cat while attempting to find a natural alternative to the store-bought clay popular brands. This has been the best we've personally found. The wood pieces are large enough to where they don't track any more than a regular litter. It does have a dust kick up when it's poured, but we have a covered litter box and otherwise do not see litter dust anywhere, just the wood pieces. It smells like wood and it's very clean, not at all chemically. It does clump pee fairly well. Not as well as clay litter does, but well enough to do a decently good box cleaning job. My biggest complaint as that the wood pieces are a little too big to filter through a regular scooper. We haven't gotten a scooper with bigger holes yet so I find that we waste a lot of litter by it not filtering through the scooper as well. Otherwise a pretty good litter." —Amazon customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99

    11. Arm & Hammer Platinum Cloud Control litter that'll create clumps for easy scooping but won't create a cloud of dust every time your cat uses it.

    Promising review: "Stands up to its name with absolutely zero dust! Switched from years of Tidy Cat clumping litter to this new Arm & Hammer Cloud Control clumping litter. Worth. The. Price." —AlyChat99

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    12. A walnut-based cat litter so natural and biodegradable that it's safe for your cat, you and the environment.

    Promising review: "This walnut-based cat litter is amazing!! ! I highly recommend this walnut-based cat litter. House doesn't smell like I have cats, nor does it smell like a hideous perfume from the litter. The litter clumps tight, easy cleanup. I'm glad I made this purchase I will be ordering more of this cat litter." —Sue Drummond

    Get it from Amazon for $20.89 (available in four sizes and seven styles).

    13. Purina Tidy Cats LightWeight 4-in-1 litter for fighting urine, fecal, ammonia, and bacterial odors. It's 50% lighter than other litters and made from a low-dust formula.

    99.9% dust-free product with powerful odor control

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. Usually, when I use regular weight cat litter, the clumps of urine will fall apart when I try to scoop them because the litter is so heavy. This lightweight litter is the absolute best! So easy to clean up and my kitties love it!" —Bailey mcmellon

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $19.94/month; available in three sizes and two styles).

    14. Arm & Hammer AbsorbX litter that'll quickly clump to eliminate odors and absorb wetness. Plus, it's 100% dust free!

    Product with 7-day odor control made with desert dry minerals

    Promising review: "The best cat litter ever. I don't have an odor in my home anymore after they (yes, three) use it. I won't buy anything else after this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" —BEKIRA

    Get it from Amazon for $14.39 (available in three styles).

    15. A jug of Cat's Pride cat litter so you can enjoy 10 days of an odor-free litter box.

    Lightweight product with 10-day odor control

    Promising review: "I have used more widely known brand-name light litter (that cost substantially more), but none are as good as this one. I have two adult cats, so the litter box gets scooped daily. Once in a while, I go two days, but not often. This litter absorbs well and scoops easily, leaving a fresh-smelling litter box when you are finished. Also, this litter doesn't seem to stick to the pads of their paws as much, meaning less deposited on floors throughout the house. Recommend you give it a try." —Suz

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.
