Feline loo duties are never a carnival. But crystal litter makes it a lot easier. It’s lightweight, controls odors, the crystals are hygienic, and it doesn’t have to be changed as often as the old litter types.
If you want to switch to a better brand or you’re shopping for your first bag of crystal litter, then we’ve got your back. Here are the top choices that will give your kitty’s bathroom a welcome upgrade!
The main feature that we love about this litter is that it changes color to indicate any health problems with your cat. It can detect blood, abnormal pH levels, and other danger signs, giving you a warning in advance to visit the vet. The litter is also super absorbent and odor-free, so it’s perfect for a multi-cat household.
The crystals also prevent dust build-up, don’t stick to your cat’s paws, and they are also unscented. The litter also doesn’t clump, so it’s easy to scoop when it’s time to clean the box. Other benefits include long-lasting freshness, no chemicals, and no dusty clouds when you pour the litter into the tray!
- Health indicator system.
- Chemical, dust, and scent-free.
- Doesn’t stick to paws.

This is a great choice if you prefer scented crystal cat litter. The crystals have a fresh scent that can last for a long time. They are also designed to be very absorbent and to actively fight the odors of urine and waste. The crystals cannot clump, which makes them easy to scoop – and as you do, the unused grains will fall back into the litter tray for continued use. The weight of the crystals also won’t weigh the litter down, making it a breeze to move the full tray to a new location!
- Smells fresh for weeks.
- Doesn’t clump.
- The crystals are hard and can stick to a cat’s feet.

The crystals are gentle on your pet’s paws, so they won’t discourage your cat from using the litter box. They are also designed to reduce dust, tracking around the house, and their absorbent design both controls odors and dries out wet solid waste.

The litter also works very quickly to maintain freshness after your cat uses it and locks away urine or waste smells with welcome speed!

There are a lot of great crystal litters out there. However, for some cat owners, they come with an obvious problem and that is the size of the crystals. Some pets have sensitive pads on their paws or they simply do not like the feel of the large chunks. Litter Pearls has a good selection of different types of crystal litters and their “Micro Crystals” option is perfect for delicate feet. However, just because the crystals are smaller doesn’t mean that their capacity for odor control is any less! Indeed, they neutralize ammonia smells on contact.
- Beautiful blue and white crystals.
- Soft on paws.
- No clumps.
- Three cats require two bags a month.
A lot of crystal cat litters do not clump and some owners are happy with that. But what if you prefer the clumps because you find it easier to remove urine that way?

Also, by quickly drying all waste, you can also expect excellent odor control.

We’ve already added quite a few of the Litter Pearls range but what makes this product different from its brethren? Truth be told, we couldn’t really see a special feature other than the color – the crystals are mostly white. This is probably why it’s labeled as “crystal clear” and if you’re not in love with crystal litter that’s all sorts of shades, then a uniformly white litter might just be the most attractive option for you!
However, this product is not just a pretty face. You can expect all the perks that mark this range including great odor control, low dust, and a non-toxic design that is unscented, absorbent, and gentle on the feet.
- Suitable for owners who prefer one color.
- Quickly captures odors.

This litter was specially designed for older cats that tend to urinate more frequently. According to the brand and some reviews, it helps to prevent urinary tract infections and kidney problems. The litter has a fine texture, almost like sand, and this encourages cats to bury their waste (better odor control and faster drying). However, even if your cat cannot be bothered with covering up their crime, the crystals immediately go to work to dry out waste and urine. This is not a clumping litter but it’s still easy to scoop clean. It’s also pine-scented.
- Formulated for senior cats.
- Completely safe and non-toxic.
- Traps urine on contact.
- Some cats might not like the pine-scented crystals.
