Advertised Product Description
This is our Perfect Litter Cat Litter Review. Perfect Litter Cat Litter is marketed as being a 100% natural, lightweight litter that allows you to visually monitor the health of your cat and sees the early warning signs for FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract disease). Also, it promises great odor control and on-point clumping. It is available in 4 and 10-pound boxes.
Who This Cat Litter is Intended For
This cat litter is intended for cats (typically single cats or houses with multiple litter boxes if they have two or more cats) who have had a history of tract issues. Also, cats and owners who have traditionally been allergic or had difficulty dealing with breathing around more popular litter materials such as clay or wood might find this litter to work better for them.
However, this product is still intended for owners who don’t want to give up conventional clumping abilities and that still value odor-fighting. Finally, it is targeted at those who are willing to spend a premium asking price to receive a product that works well for them and their cat(s).
What Makes This Cat Litter Unique
This cat litter is unique in that it utilizes some very unorthodox materials such as guar gum in its composition. Also, it is specially formulated to detect early signs of feline lower urinary tract disease, which we have not seen in any other product on the market. Despite this special approach, it still advertises having good clumping ability and odor control, which means that it still tries to stick to its roots of what makes a cat litter viable.
Clumping Ability –
Overall the clumping is decent. This is an extremely lightweight litter so the clumps simply aren’t going to be as hard as many conventional clay products, but they still get hard enough to be easily managed while not using a ton of product in the process. However, there can be a bit of a struggle when it is exposed to a lot of fluid.
Small pools of urine can be created, which can be a bit frustrating. And trying to remove these urine pools can end up wasting product so, in the end, it might cancel out the efficient use on feces. This struggle with fluids might be the result of not going with a full clay or crystal composition like many of its competitors.
There are no artificial perfumes and this litter is essentially odorless, which we will happily take over a vast majority of the “fresh scent” products on the market. The feces clumps, while somewhat soft, do an acceptable job of hiding away the odors. However, the above-mentioned exposed urine can start to kick up the smells of ammonia after a few days. If you don’t carefully monitor and remove waste often then things can start to smell pretty foul rather quick.
The extreme lightweight attribute of this product might be appreciated during transportation or removal, but it also means that it is easily tracked. It is almost a powder-like consistency with little chunks here and there and the powder will easily stick to your cat’s paws. The clumps, if you are gentle with them, can be removed without any major headache but the urine can result in a sticky mess. This is especially true in busier litter boxes so if you do use this product we highly encourage you to try it out on lower-traffic locations first.
Online prices for this product have been seen to be well into the premium-price area. While it does have some unique benefits, this is still a very high asking price.
Overall Rating –
The Perfect Litter Cat Litter Review earns 2 out of 5 cats. For being a “perfect litter” we found multiple things that make it far from perfect. While we appreciate the lightweight attribute, the unique ability to detect warning signs of FLUTD, and the decision to go with some more exotic materials such as vermiculite and perlite, sometimes “keeping it simple” is best and this looks like one of those cases, especially when you look at how incredibly expensive it is.
