One of the best litters with subscription in the industry is Pretty Litter, the next level of cat litter. It is made of silica gel crystals which are absorbent and help to trap the odor, eliminate the moisture, and monitor your cat’s health. The litter also is 80% lighter than others, so you don’t have to haul a giant box of litter from the store. It was designed to take care of the cat´s health, this is why it is dust-free and change its color depending on the HP of the urine of your cat, and is costs $22, which is a good price for all the features it has, but let’s see in more detail how it works.
So we, ourselves, ordered and tested the Pretty Litter to find out ourselves if it’s actually worth the price. Spoiler: I find Kitty Poo Club better for a variety of reasons, but pretty litter is still a decent product. I will explain why in the article.
Pretty Litter Quick Summary
Pretty Litter is one of the best silica gel cat litters out there available for you. Its main feature, in our opinion, is the urine health monitoring feature which can help you if you want to watch out for your cats regarding their health. One bag costs $22, however, if you purchase directly from their website, they give discounts depending on the number of cats you have. A 22-dollar bag can last you up to one month, and based on our experience, having two cats, it can last you for up to two weeks.
My Personal Experience With Pretty Litter
I had ordered Pretty Litter on Aug 13th, 2021 and I received it in a few days!
It was so easy to open and it was the most dust-free cat litter I have ever seen! It’s also so lightweight.
So first we tested the dust particles and the Pretty Litter has pretty much less dust particles than other silica gel products we’ve tried which is pretty impressive. However, of course, it would still produce dust particles when poured albeit being better than other similar products.
Card explains how the litter works and also doubles as rules for making sure you are getting the right amount of litter in your litter box.
It took seconds for my cat to research the new cat litter and she peed almost right away. My cat warmed up pretty quickly with the Pretty Litter, and she was thinking that it could be that the fine texture did not really bother my cat while using it. It is very fine-grained and sandy and actually feels comfortable with the hand which can also mean that it may also be comfortable with my cats paws.
I did not like the fact that Pretty Litter provides only one type of cat litter. Even though silica gel crystal is an acceptable choice, I personally do not like it because it sticks on the paws of cats and they bring it all over the house. In comparison, Kitty Poo Club gives you a choice of 5 cat litter types. I guess it is due to their controversial health-monitoring feature, that I cover below.
Time to check the Pretty Litter health monitoring feature.
As for me, though, I didn’t really notice any changes in the color of the litter so I just concluded that my cat does not have a problem healthwise.
As per instructions, I checked the color of the litter in the next 48 hours.
Luckily, the urine of my cat remained yellow which means there is nothing wrong with her health!
I also want to mention how amazing Pretty Litter traps the odor! I was concerned that my cat did not poo since there was no smell whatsoever but when I scooped I found a bunch of cigars! Just wow! Odor control is impeccable throughout our testing phase. As long as you clean it up and scoop out the waste regularly, you won’t have any problems with the smell unless it’s close to an end. I also didn’t have a problem with the maintenance as it is fairly easy to keep it clean.
How Does Pretty Litter Work?
Pretty litter helps you monitor your cat changing the color depending on the HP of the urine, the silica gel crystals take different colors. If, for example, the urine is in a color blue indicating alkaline (high HP) may mean certain types of urinary tract infection, or if it gets yellow as in acidity (low HP) it may lead to calcium oxalate, it also gets red when there´s blood and indicates that there may be bladder inflammation, stones or and infection.
The litter lasts one month per cat and as it is made of silica gel crystals you don’t need to scoop a lot, but you need to clean it every day, you may want to mix it up once a day, maybe after you clean it, so the litter below can go up and look clean again, this is possible because the silica gel crystals are super absorbent, meaning that you also need less litter than usual. The litter is dust-free and it’s household-friendly, which means it is harmless in case someone eats it, but of course, don’t do it.

Pretty Litter Health Monitoring Feature
Talking about monitoring, the litter change the color depending on the HP¨level of the urine, but if it gets blue one time it doesn’t mean you need to take your cat right to the vet, sometimes it just happens, this is why Pretty Litter can´t work as a proof to know if your cat has a disease, before taking your cat to the vet keep looking at the urine of your cat, if he lasts one whole day with alkaline, acid or blood urine then you should take him to the vet and check if there is a problem. The color indicates something abnormal even before the cat presents symptoms of any disease, but a one-time color doesn’t mean he needs attention at the moment, keep monitoring and take it to the vet if the urine persists.
My vet said it’s all a marketing thing though and you should not trust it much as well as it might not be able to indicate some diseases.

Consumer Reviews of Pretty Litter
Whoa, this litter is great! I noticed a little dust in the air after I poured the bag in but after that nothing. This stuff condenses into little dense…..nuggets when our cat pees in it rather than the huge clump from clay litters or the pile of wet dust from the pine litter. They’re really easy to scoop up/find and the let all the clean litter fall through the scoop.
The poop barely clings to the beads, there’s a little that gets stuck to it but it’s an incredibly small amount, I can already tell this litter is going to last a lot longer than any others I’ve used in the past.
Love this product, it lastup to a month.
There is no smell.clean up is easy.if there a medical issue with the cat urine
The litter changes color to indicate there is an issue.
I LOVE this cat litter. I used to hate cleaning the cat box …but now it is SO easy. There are no giant heavy “urine balls” to scoop out, the litter is super light and airy. All you do is scoop the solid waste once/per day, the urine evaporates and no smell. It lasts for a month. It does track onto the floor but really easy to sweep up. Side note, so much easier to carry, super light. I used to drag these heavy bags of litter up the stairs, ugg. Love it! BTW-My cat made the switch easily, no problems at all.
Is Pretty Litter Worth It?
I find the cost more than fair because of the features it gives you, especially being able to know more about your cat’s health, the weight of the litter, and the odor control, therefore, getting the litter at $22 price is definitely worth it. Make sure to get it from the official website only, to avoid scams and get the best price.
