Reviewing Garfield's New Cat Litter


Garfield has been a part of my life for as far back as I can remember. The original "crabby tabby," I identify with him in so many ways...we both love lasagna, hate mornings, and love spending hours curled up in front of the TV doing nothing.

Through the years I've collected nearly every Garfield book that's been released, numerous stuffed animals and figurines, household items like mugs and teapots, and my favorites...Garfield Christmas ornaments. (In the early days before the strips were collected in book form my mom would clip them out of the newspaper and glue them in notebooks for me. I still have those notebooks and will always treasure them!)



So earlier this spring when I learned Garfield now had his own brand of kitty litter, I knew this was something we needed to try and immediately requested a sample bag.

Being more careful with the litter we use since Mudpie's asthma diagnosis, I was pleased to see that the Garfield litter is billed as dust-free and free of added chemicals or fragrances. It's also environmentally friendly, made of 100% natural plant-based renewable ingredients, biodegradable and flushable too!


The first thing you'll notice after opening the bag is that the litter is white! This is actually for a very important reason because it helps detect changes in your cat's urine, such as the presence of blood.

I added the litter to Mudpie's litter box and waited to see how she would react. She was quite hesitant the first time she stepped in and ended up peeing outside the box! Who knows, maybe her aim was just off that time because there were no problems after that. We were completely impressed by the clumps, the ease of scooping, no noticeable odors at all, and best of all it really is dust free!!!


The bag claims that a 5 pound bag of litter lasts the typical cat 30 days. Our bag lasted more like 3 weeks. Right now it's only available on Amazon (hopefully it will be in stores soon) but if you have Prime it can be right at your door in 2 days!

We give Garfield's Cat Litter four paws up and will definitely be using it again.

Any other Garfield fanatics out there?

  1. I'm a member of a Garfield collectors club bee get together for conventions around the country. My basement is full of hundreds of Garfields. I wanted to like the litter so much, but had to switch back after one week. My cats tracked it everywhere- counters, table, even on my bed. The smaller grain made my floors like China beach, and the larger granules could be seen everywhere. It was dust free, but low tracking- not so much. I have seen plenty of folks with positive reviews- I know my two boys are litter tracking specialists. I think they practice when I'm not home. I don't think they've trained Izzy yet!

    1. I need to see pictures of your basement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And how interesting your experience with the litter! I do think Mudpie is very tidy when it comes to her potty, which is why I was so surprised when she overshot the runway! Don't let those boys corrupt precious Izzy ;)

  2. I know we are from the UK but we get Fullers Earth Clumping Cat Litter and it does exactly what it says on the bag - we dispose of any of the old clumping cat litter each week, clean the tray and once it has dried off refill it and just top it up maybe once or twice a week.

  4. Those notebooks sound like something I would've done as a kid. I used to have all the Garfield books. This litter sounds great.

  5. Sadly, the sample link provided doesn't appear to be for individuals but for stores. Still, it will be worth buying a bag when/if it does become available in pet stores.

  12. I am very particular about my litter recently. I'll use the Weruva litter and grass litters mix with clay but not by themselves. TW has a few Garfield things but some didn't make the move and she recently donated three Danbury Mint Garfield figures to CB auctions. I'm sure you know Sunday is Garfield the Cat Day.
