Scented Vs. Unscented Cat Litter

“Scented or Unscented Cat Litter … that is the question.”

Find out which is right for you and your feline.

After weeks of anticipation and speculation, the cat’s finally out of the bag about our new formula.

While it may not be as difficult to solve as Hamlet’s famous philosophical riddle, the question of whether to choose a scented vs. unscented cat litter is a big one for pet parents. And while trying both is probably the surest way to know which you prefer, World’s Best Cat Litter™ is here to help you determine which is right for you!

Scented vs. Unscented Cat Litter

There seems to be two distinct types of people when it comes to scented products. Let’s find out which one you are.

Scented Cat Litter

Do you love to light candles all around the house and use scented air fresheners to keep your home smelling fresh or seasonal? If so, you’re probably a scent-loving individual and we definitely recommend you try a scented cat litter. While any good cat litter – scented or unscented – should trap nasty pet smells, a scented litter provides a distinctive aroma that you may prefer to no smell at all!

Scented might also be a good option for those of you who place your litter box in a basement or bathroom – places that might already need a bit of freshening up. The good news is that today’s pet parents don’t have to settle for scented litters that contain overbearing perfumes or artificial scents (we hate them as much as you do!). World’s Best Cat Litter™ only uses all-natural ingredients so our scented formulas, Lavender Scented Multiple Cat Clumping and Forest Scented Clumping, offer a gentle smell that won’t be too much for you or your cat.

Unscented Cat Litter

On the other side of the spectrum are those of you who prefer everything “au naturel.” Do you purposely avoid going by The Yankee Candle Store in the mall? Do you avoid scented detergents or soaps and opt for a more simple clean? If this describes you then an unscented litter may be the right choice. And with the maximum odor control that’s found in our non-scented formulas, Clumping and Multiple Cat Clumping, you never have to worry about your house smelling like the litter box.

Another important consideration is what’s best for your feline! Certain cats may be allergic and/or unhappy with a scented litter so don’t hesitate to make the switch to an unscented formula if he or she shows signs of disapproval.

As an important final reminder: there’s no “right” or “wrong” choice between scented vs. unscented litter — it all comes down to your cat’s and family’s preference. As always, we recommend you make the choice that’s most appropriate for your household, and that’s why World’s Best Cat Litter™ offers a variety of natural litters that are guaranteed to meet your needs and preferences.
