Disclaimer: Raising Your Pets Naturally is part of the Chewy Influencer Team. I chose a specific product to review, based on my philosophy of natural pet care. I will always try to offer my readers great product selections. Your trust is very appreciated, and never taken for granted. ~Tonya, Dexter and Nutter

As a pet mom focused on raising my pets naturally, I think about every product my pets contact. Toxins add up. What may start out as a small concern, adding that to other “small concerns” or multiplying by daily use can run quickly into problems and toxicity.

When someone asks me what is the best cat litter, I have to say there is no ‘one size fits all.’ Is there ever? People often look for the best clumping cat litter, best cat litter for odor control, or even the best cat litter for multiple cats. Sure, these are all very helpful qualities in a good cat litter, but my first go-to is to look for the best natural cat litter. A cat litter that is safe for my cats.

When I saw that one of the Chewy Influencer selections was okocat litter from Healthy Pet, I was excited to review their pine cat litter. Oko is the German word for ecological, meaning green or organic, and okocat litter is made from 100% natural wood or paper fiber.

okocat Pine Litter

Personally, I’m not a fan of clay cat litter. Clay contains silica, which can cause lung disease and lung cancer. Clay is also a known carcinogen when inhaled. Think about all that dust (silica) that you and your cat are inhaling daily as he digs in his litter and you pour and scoop it. Clay also does not biodegrade, so it’s adding to the landfills.

okocat’s natural pine cat litter, on the other hand, is naturally biodegradable. This cat litter is also dust-free and flushable, but I do not recommend flushing any cat litter down the toilet. The natural wood fiber binds and traps liquids and odors so they can’t escape. This is so important in our home. Sometimes other natural cat litters I have used smell like a barn. I’d still rather have a barn smell than toxins, but okocat litter does not have that barnyard smell.

Natural pine litter for cats

okocat natural wood pine cat litter is natural and does not smell like a barnyard, but does it work? A big yes for us! Nutter has HUGE pees. Maybe it’s the biologically appropriate cat food he receives, I don’t know. But okocat stood up to the challenge. I used one box in Nutter’s cat litter box and the bottom of the box was dry, which hasn’t always been the case with some cat litter. This natural cat litter does a great job of absorbing the urine and odor.

If you are looking for a natural cat litter that offers great odor control, is dust-free, and good for multiple cats, check out okocat from Healthy Pet. Hop over to Chewy for 1-2 day free shipping on orders over $49!

  1. We’ve so far changed two cat litters and came up with one that best suits him and us in terms of smell and no toxicity. It’s really important for us to keep him away from “the bad” stuff! This brand seems great, I would definitely try it!

  2. I have an aunty who would love this post. She has 3 cats and always buy store branded cat litter. They usually do the job but the smell is not very nice. Plus for $49 she will be saving a lot of money!

  3. Great post. We really need to stay informed about what we buy for our cats. I didn’t know clay contains silica, which can cause lung disease!

  4. I have always had dogs growing up and got 2 dogs when I moved out so have never actually had a cat but always wanted one when I was little. SO having never had a cat its not somehting I would have htought about but I never knew clay contained silica! Something I will keep in mind for the future if I ever get that cat I always wanted. I am like oyu, I prefer the natural products for all my animals

  5. I don’t have a cat, but I do like that there is cat litter that is more natural. I used to have cats and hated the smell of the litter, so the fact that it is odor free is awesome too. Like I said, I don’t have cats now, but I have a friend who has a cat so I will pass this on to her.

  6. Thank you for this information. While I do not have cats, I’m about to get a puppy in few weeks. My husband and I are discussing about cat litter training. We will definitely consider this.

  7. I don’t have a cat, but I have a family member who does. Sending her this article- it seems quite helpful! Thank you.

  8. I need to check this out. My cat has a thyroid condition (so she urinates a lot more frequently) but the standard litter is such a hassle and gets all over the place. I’d love to have something that is more natural and healthier for all of us!

  9. This is different, I’ve never thought about an all natural litter. One would hope the cat likes the litter as they can be very picky animals.

  10. I’m not a cat person but I am all about natural products for our animals, especially if the products need to be about in the home.

  11. I think natural is ALWAYS best, especially when it comes to our pets. My good friend has a few cats and uses store bought litter – and it’s smelly.

  12. I think its difficult to find the right products for the natural growth of the pets. Some brands are just for their sales. Their results are very disappointing. I hope this is gonna give good results.

  13. I have two cats and I’ve never used a traditional pine litter. I really loved reading and learning about it and I’m thinking if it would be a nice choice for my fur babies. Thanks for the informative post!

  14. Wow! this cat litter seems amazing and natural. I don’t have cats so didn’t really know how cat litter even worked till I read your post there. The pine cat litter from Okocat is a natural product and I am all about using as much of nature in our everyday lives as possible and that includes cat litter!

  15. What a great post. We have four cats of our own, although I haven’t thought about using natural kitty litter before. Mostly because once we tried to switch everybody over to a different litter, and there was protest! I’m not even kidding. They completely stopped using the litterbox all together and went on the basement floor right beside it. We quickly reverted back. Have you ever run across this, or are cats the pickiest creatures ever?

  16. Never have seen this brand before but I have seen a different natural kitty litter. I like this better than regular kitty litter because its decompose better.

  17. I have two cats, and I’m always struggling with the litter! Sometimes It looks like I found the one but there’s always something, will try this option, X

  18. I am still not sure about pine litter, but with 8 cats (all rescues), it might be worth considering this or some other kind of natural litter. Price, performance, and ease of changing the multiple litter boxes will all be factors.

  19. This is great information. My niece got her dad a kitten for Father’s Day and I will be passing this information on!

  20. I remember picking up something like this at my local store once. It was not bad but a tad pricey. My cat loved it.

      1. Indeed. That is true and companies that make these items need to meet their overheads. Plus, they tend to be small businesses that can’t compete with the big corporations. I hear you!

  21. I love oko cat litter. My 2 cats really love it too. They’re a little older and it seems like an easier and milder litter for them. Your cat is precious by the way…lol.

  22. I will have to try Okocat. I was actually alarmed when you wrote about the harmful effects of clay. I will check the litter bag and read what kind of stuff is in there. If there’s clay, I’ll ditch it immediately!

  23. We’ve never used cat litter but if ever we do, I think we’ll get something natural like this one. Your cats must be very happy. 🙂

  24. who knew this was real and possible if i had not read it here, i have a few attachments to cats but never knew of this. thanks for the info as i will be on this from now on.

  25. This is very good information to know, I do not have cats myself, but have friends that do. Will past along this information, always good to go the natural route with things we use. Thank you for sharing!

  26. I have been using a mango wood liter for my cats. would that be considered as a natural liter? it doesn’t comes with that branding though.
