General Information

If you think a scoopable litter has to be loaded with clay and chemicals to clump and control odor, you're in for a surprise! Swheat Scoop litter is made from naturally processed wheat, which means it's clay free, chemical free, fragrance free and biodegradable. Mouse around here a while, and we think you'll agree -- this litter is naturally better.

Pros: Not dusty. Light in weight. Clean source - non-chemical.
Cons: No odor control. Does not clump well. Didn't last a week with daily scooping.
I spent a fair amount on this litter.  It came highly recommended, and I wanted something that wasn't dusty, and heavy like the old Maxx Cat.

Well, it's light.  It isn't too dusty.  But although it says it's a clumping litter, I did not find this to be entirely accurate.  It clumps a little... but falls apart when you scoop.  We didn't use it for more than 5 days before I tossed the whole thing and used some Purina.  

And my cat was sneezing a lot, several times a day, which stopped when I changed back to the Purina.

I'm annoyed that I spent so much on something I will never use again.  I still have half a bag left.  Argh.  I live in Canada, and a bag here runs $34 Canadian.

I do not recommend this litter.  Too expensive, doesn't clump well, and zero odor control.
Pros: ALMOST as good as Worlds Best, but cheaper !
Cons: Sticks to bottom a little and crumbles a little
I really feel that, if you have a couple of cats that have no health problems and are about 7 lbs, etc. this litter is great.  

Unfortunately I have one diabetic cat ( pees a lot ) and one that has a soft stool / IBD problem,   and this combination plus the fact that they are both 14 lbs. each, puts a big strain on this particular litter.  I have to use more of it, top it off more, its not as long lasting,  and in the end, to be honest, went back to the Worlds Best.  Truly, WB the best, but it IS pricey. 

But, I was pleasantly surprised when I tried the S"Wheat Scoop MULTI CAT litter because it does come close to WB.  ( My litter box, by necessity, is in a small extra bathroom in our house..... so I got the multi-cat one, not sure how the regular is as far as odor control ).  

For the past two years, I loved Worlds Best, but did my year end expenses and found that the cost was too high.  I have a problem using regular scoop litter b/c I am allergic to Sodium Bentonate, the chemical used the make most  regular clay litters 'scoopable,"  and I have tried all the other non-clay litters and up to this point  WB  has been the best.

But then I found S'WHEAT SCOOP!     It has the same crumbly consistency, the only difference from WB  being that it is wheat rather than corn.  The odor control is EXCELLENT, the scoop-ability is good, but does stick to the bottom at times, and when you scoop the sticky bottom, it tends to crumble.  

I usually change my boxes completely every two-three  weeks, but this stuff seems to deteriorate with hard use, needing a lot of daily topping off.   It has a similiar light color, so you can see what is going on in the box,  for diagnostic purposes, too. 

The good news is that,  pound to pound, in my area ( Florida, USA )  WB is $2.00 a pound and SS is $1.00 a pound !   I wish this would have worked for me, but like I said, with my particular cats, it didn't stand up so well. 

Now, the cheapest litters, as you all know, are the scoopable clay ones, but if anyone out there has any respiratory issues or allergies, WB and SS are two very good ones to use.  If you want to save $$, go with SS.   
Pros: Biodegradable, flushable, not dusty, no odor
Cons: Occasional moth infestation
I have used Swheat Scoop for my three resident cats for four years and now I have transitioned four more older cats to it.  It is not dusty and unless you get the 'lightly scented' variety, has no scent of its own, a big plus in my book.  I have tried several brands of clay litter but even the unscented ones have a strange odor that bothers me, even though the cats didn't seem to mind it.  

The cats do track the Swheat Scoop but I put puppy pads under their litter boxes so the small bits of litter are contained on the pads, and the litter that does get stuck to the cats' feet is easy to clean, unlike clay litter residue that's like wet cement to get out from between at cat's toes.

What caught my eye to begin with was the environmental friendliness of this litter.  If I bag it up, I use paper bags (vs. plastic) so when it does go the landfill, both the bag and the litter will biodegrade.  Two of our litter boxes are in bathrooms, though, so that waste gets flushed down the toilet, as this litter is completely flushable.

The only con is that I got some bags of Swheat Scoop last year--probably half a dozen altogether--that had small moths in it.  It was annoying but there weren't that many, and honestly, it wasn't a deal breaker for me because otherwise I like the litter, and all of the cats use it with no complaints.  :-)  I haven't had a problem with moths in about six months so perhaps the manufacturer has changed the way it's processed or bagged to prevent infestations.  

Comments

I've found that Sweat Scoop does get mixed reviews!  I like it because it's flushable and since a couple of our litter boxes are in bathrooms, it makes clean up of the boxes much easier for me.  Our cats use it just fine, fortunately.  I find it to be less dusty than clay litter! and I like the smell better, too.
 
I do have one old cat who just will not use it--he's used to clay and that's that, there's no teaching that old cat any new tricks.  I also have had a problem with some bags of Swheat Scoop having tiny moths in it.  Annoying but not a deal-breaker for me.  The environmentally friendly (especially flushable) aspects of it, plus the fact that 6 cats out of 7 in our house use it without problems, outweigh the occasional moth problem.
 
I have always had one to three cats and have never, over 60 years, had occasion to change from the cheapest Woolworth's non-clumping clay litter, 4 or 15 litre bags.  It controls odour and cleans out fairly well. 
 
What is more important is that the cats like it - even though they have been Siamese and very picky, (except for the current one who is just as picky).
 
I can’t say for sure, but Swheat Scoop and Natural Walnut Litter probably contributed to both my cats developing allergic asthma. My vet said that Swheat Scoop and ground wood cat litters are not only dusty but grow a lot of mold that the cat is inhaling while digging. I encourage you to do some research before subjecting your cats to this litter.

I now use OKOCAT PAPER LITTER with an inch or two of EXQUISICAT FRAGRANCE-FREE PAPER LITTER underneath it and change it completely every six days.
This works well for asthmatic cats. Each cat has a litterbox. OKOCAT PAPER LITTER
Is biodegradable.
