This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you go to your local pet store, you'll find the most prevalent choices for cat litters are clay-based. But as pet parents become more concerned about exposing their furry friends to chemicals and toxins, many are seeking out alternative options. Biodegradable cat litters are becoming more popular because clay needs to be strip-mined and is not a renewable resource. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best biodegradable cat litter on Amazon.
