Clay litter simply works better, and cats prefer clay over other litter types!
We are cat lovers at Boxiecat and have used every type of litter, both clay and non-clay. We focus on making Boxiecat clay litter because it simply works better than any alternative type of litter, and it is clinically proven that cats prefer it. Litter box care is one of the most important daily issues for your cat and your household, so we focus on what is proven to work, and on offering the highest quality premium clay litter possible. Subscribers tell us Boxiecat clay litter makes a noticeable difference.
Boxiecat clay litter is veterinarian recommended and won the Cat Fancy 2012 Editors' Choice award. It is used by vet and shelter professionals, and subscribers in all 50 states.
The ASPCA's litter page notes that cats prefer fine-grain clumping litter more than 2-to-1:
"In 1990, Dr. Peter Borchelt, an applied animal behaviorist, ran three 10-day tests to determine feline litter preference using a comparison of 14 types of commercial litter as well as topsoil mixed with clay litter and playbox sand. Each cat had 6 boxes to choose from; midway through the testing, the boxes were moved to prevent placement preference from overriding litter type preference. In test after test, fine-grained clumping litter was used more than twice as often as its nearest competitor, with boxes of wood chips, grain litter and recycled paper litter going completely unused. Borchelt concludes, “These data support the clinical observation that an important factor in cats’ preference for litter material is its texture, granularity or coarseness."

Here's what Boxiecat subscriber Dr. Lisa Franck says about this topic:
"This is truly the BEST litter! I have used every litter on the market. I have spent a ton of money on expensive litters. I have used all of the clay and non-clay litters, as well. My cats have always preferred clay, but I couldn't stand the smell or the difficult clean up. Until Boxiecat!
