Nature’s Miracle Cat Litter Review


Years ago, to help stop Chris from pooping on the floor, I started using Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Unscented Clumping Cat Litter along with their Litter Attractant. This cut the pooping in half and moving all the litter boxes to the same room eliminated the problem. We continued using the litter and attractant for some time after that just to be sure. Eventually we stopped buying the attractant but continued to use Dr. Elsey’s litter because it was the least dusty litter that I have ever used. A few months ago, when Puck started pooping on the sofa (and we blamed Chris) we bought the cat attractant again.

Recently I needed to change the boxes and Rose was sick of paying a premium price for that litter and wanted me to buy something cheaper. I told her I would look and headed off to PetSmart. Once there I discovered that Dr. Elsey’s was cheaper per pound than most national brands and I always thought I was over paying. Nevertheless, they only had one bag of Dr. Elsey’s and I needed two. I decided to buy Nature’s Miracle Scent Free Cat Litter instead. It was $15 instead of $17 for the 40 pound bag of our normal litter. I also later discovered it has good Amazon reviews.

The new litter seems exactly the same as the old litter. It is relatively dust free, it clumps well, and all the cats seem to be fine with it.

I also like it because it comes in a box with a handle on both sides. The other litter came in a large bag with no handle.

I think I will continue to use this in the future although I believe one of those alternative litters made from wheat, corn, pine, etc. Is a healthier option. Unfortunately, our cats are too picky and I know from experience that I might be picking poop off the floor if I tried it.

What do you think?

    That one sounds good. I don’t usually buy any clumping litter because I don’t like the smells, but I may give that a try. Is Frankie feeling better? I am now wondering if the new litter was bothering him?

    I have used corn-based litter and sandy crystals pretty much since I moved here – I only get the clay litter when I’m at a cat show. My human uses these because they are lighter weight and she is a weakling! MOL – she does work out her arms, but she still whines when she thinks things are too heavy.

      I do like the weight of that litter. I tried it before, side by side with the other litter and they rarely used it. I should put it in both boxes so the don’t have a choice. My fear is the will choose the floor.

    We’ve been using the Dr. Elsey litter for a long time and really like it. We’ve never been fans of the wheat, corn or other types of litters…we just won’t use them. So the mom feels if we like the Dr. Elsey, if it ain’t broke, why fix it?

    I do not like the ‘natural’ litters because of aflatoxins.. I also don’t like them because my cat Jack tends to eat the wheat and corn based ones – chews through the bag to get to the litter – when I brought them home for the foster kittens once.

    I’ve tried a lot of them, and I have found they tend to smell more and I go through them faster than conventional clumping clay litter.

      I suppose that could be a problem if you live in a humid environment, especially if it is corn based. There doesn’t seem to be a perfect choice. The clumping litter is said to be toxic too.
