#chewyinfluencer Boxiecat Cat Litter - a review



Fleurp absolutely adores the fact that we are a part of the Chewy.com Influencer program. She knows that when that box shows up she is bound to get treats, because that how it has gone for her in the past. Unfortunately for her, this month we decided to go with the Boxiecat litter that was offered.


As part of the influencer program, we receive free product in exchange for an honest review of that product on our blog. All content of this post is our own.


Fleurp is disappointed this is not cat treats.

Fleurp was exceedingly disappointed that the box contained sixteen pounds of litter and not cat treats, but she got over it when I gave her some treats later.

Boxiecat claims that it is an all natural, unscented clumping clay litter that is 99.9% dust free that clumps instantly, scoops easily, resists tracking and it stays ultra-clean even after weeks of scooping. Pretty impressive claims, but how would it hold up? Our house uses wading pools for cat boxes, so this little bag wasn't going to go far in our main litter box area, but because of Muffin's recent issues we have put a litter box upstairs for her.


I dumped out the litter that was in there and emptied the bag into the box. I was pleased how little dust there was. So often litters claim to be dust free and then throw up a huge cloud when you dump them out. I won't say there wasn't any dust, but it was pretty minimal.


Muffin thought this litter was well worth using, immediately, as in 'get out I'm busy' immediately. Actually, she really doesn't care if I watch her pee.

My cats are lazy and if they don't have to walk downstairs they don't. Having a box upstairs is a bit of a battle to keep it clean enough to keep Muffin happy and not have the box flooded with seven cats trying to use it. We often lose. After one day of use this is what the box looks like. Don't forget, a lot of it was covered up too.


I was pretty impressed how well this litter cleans up. When scooping, the 'clumps' my cats produce might not all stay together, because my cats tend to spread their pee around so we end up with strips instead of clumps, but when it breaks it doesn't break into a number of small pieces which means it cleans up easily. This is what the box looked like after I scooped it.


We did have some tracking of the litter, and most of it was contained right near the box, but some of it was across the bathroom floor causing us to sweep on a regular basis. It was better than some other litters, so I think it lives up to the 'resists tracking' claim.  The bag didn't last us very long, but that is because we have seven cats using it, but it did last right to the very last. Because it cleaned up so well, each time I scooped I had a very clean new looking box, even when there wasn't a lot of litter left. It was 'good to the very last drop' if you will.

The cons? The price. at $17 for 16 pounds, it is one of the more expensive litters out there. other than that this would be high up on my list of litters to use. I absolutely would not turn them down of Boxiecat wanted to offer me a lifetime supply of this.

Thank you again to Chewy for this opportunity. Fleurp is looking forward to next month and is hoping that we go back to getting things she can eat.

  1. Thank you so much for this review. We have tried litter after litter, and Mom still hasn't found one that we and she like equally. This, however, would be way too expensive for eight cats. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Jo

  3. Thank you for this review. I am still on the hunt for the new litter I will use for my own crew. My cats are all diggers, and excel at tracking. In fact, I iften find litter in the living room, on my desk, and in my bedroom, all of which are in rooms that do not have a litter box located in them. I've tried so many litters. I'm a bit limited since Nicky cannot have anything with even a hint of scent to it. I'm about to try the new Lucy Pet Products litter. If that doesn't work out I'll give Boxicat a try. Did you notice any scent to the litter?

  4. This looks like a great option for families who use clay litter. Being able to use the litter all the way to the bottom is unusual.

  7. Sorry you were disappointed by the lack of treats, Fleurp. However, good litter isn't a bad package to get.

  10. I'm always looking for a better mix of clumping and less tracking ... it seems every litter excels in one and completely fails in the other :(

  12. Good review! Our Dad goes through spells where he simply MUST find the next big thing in litter and it sounds like Boxiecat might be right up his alley! Thanks!
