GPC Pet Products offer an all natural, completely biodegradable cat litter made from corn fibers and proteins that have received rave reviews from cat owners looking for a natural alternative to conventional cat litter. GPC claims that World’s Best Cat Litter is clumpable, flushable and controls odors without creating silica dust. The general public is supporting these claims and giving it two thumbs up. Unlike natural clay, this corn based litter has a pleasant natural scent and evidently scoops easily. Of course with all natural litters, it does require more frequent cleaning then conventional litters but at least you can toss it without worry that it’s harming the environment. The natural material and reduction of dust has the added benefit of being easy on cats and humans with allergies, asthma or sensitivities to dust. Although GPC advertises that World’s Best Cat Litter is safe to flush it’s important to note that flushing cat waste can be detrimental to the environment. Cat’s are capable of passing on a variety of pathogens in their feces and introducing those bugs to your local watershed is never a good idea. Although it says flushable it’s recommended you toss it in the trash.

PROS: 100% Biodegradable, clumpable, doesn’t track dust, doesn’t agitate sensitive noses.

CONS: Needs frequent cleaning and expensive at $9.00 per 7 lb bag.

BP BONUS: Cats seem to love it.
