In my last natural cat litter comparison I mentioned Close to Naturenow soybean cat litter from The Organic Farm Store. I recently had a chance to try it out myself and I found that it is a good alternative cat litter with some big advantages. The texture is similar to the Arm & Hammer Essentials (formerly High Performance) and Nature’s Miracle — light and fluffy and soft on kitty’s feet. It is made from organic soybeans with granulated potato starch added for odor control. Close to Naturenow offers similar clumping, odor control, and dust control as these other natural litters, but the biggest benefit is that it is made out of 100% natural organic ingredients. Yes, organic! Which is almost impossible to find in a kitty litter. I have to admit that I felt so good about using an organic product, that performance became secondary. If using products that are organic, natural, and completely renewable is important to you, then you should definitely check out this litter.
Close to Naturenow is available in a resealable 10 lb bag, a convenient 18 lb pail, and a hefty 33 lb resealable bag. You can order directly from The Organic Farm Store website or find a retailer near you, which is usually a more economical way to get your hands on the larger sizes.
[Note: If you live in the Phoenix area, I just found a great independent pet supply store, Sunflower Pet Supply over in Tempe, and they carry all three sizes of Close to Naturenow litter.]
