ExquisiCat Litter Brand Overview
ExquisiCat specializes in litter and litter-related accessories. The brand is carried exclusively by PetSmart. In addition to a range of litter types, the company also offers litter boxes, liners, scoopers, waste bags, and litter box mats (to reduce tracking).
The brand prides itself on making litter with long-lasting odor control and minimal dust.
What Kind Of Litter Does Exquisicat Offer?
The ExquisiCat litter line is divided among three categories: clay, silica crystals, and natural options, like paper and pine. (To get a well-rounded account of the brand’s different litters, I purchased one of each type.)
ExquisiCat offers clumping and non-clumping formulas, as well as scented and unscented varieties. The brand’s superior odor control and minimal dust generation make it a good choice for multicat homes—especially those with litter boxes and humans sharing close quarters. Price-wise, ExquisiCat is on the higher end but is on par with similar brands.
The three litters reviewed below are all unscented, clumping formulas.

What Do Customers Think Of ExquisiCat Litter?
For the most part, ExquisiCat has favorable reviews. People appreciate its effective odor control and low dust generation. Here’s what folks have to say:
“Does everything it claims to do. Both cats took to it immediately. Less smell, much less dust. I have used one of the other Big Name Brands for literally decades, but for now, this is my new go-to litter!” – Review of ExquisiCat Premium Clumping Clay Litter
“I like the fact that it’s all-natural, lightweight, and odor free. It does track quite a bit, but I already knew that beforehand so I have a good-quality mat for that. I do wish it was less expensive, but it absorbs well and doesn’t stick to the litter box, so it needs less frequent changes. I like that it comes in 14 lb bags too, instead of 20 lbs, making it easier to handle.” – Review of ExquisiCat Naturals Grass Seed Clumping Litter
I tried this for my senior cat who has horrible allergies. I wanted to try crystal litter. This one said 99.9% dust free, so I thought I would try it. The moment I poured it into the litter box there was a big cloud of dust. Every time she covered her business, she stirred up dust causing her to sneeze. I even sneezed sifting it. I also noticed dust on the furniture close to where the box was set. If your looking for dust free/ easy maintenance and low-tracking litter this isn’t the one.” – Review of ExquisiCat Micro Crystals Clumping Litter
“I have 2 cats at home so I need cat litter that limits mess and odors. This litter really didn’t do much in masking odors. Also, the clumping wasn’t much, so there were a lot of messes. I had to use more litter than other brands because of this.” – Review of ExquisiCat Naturals Grass Seed Clumping Litter
How Much Does ExquisiCat Litter Cost?
Compared to other similar brands, most ExquisiCat products are on the pricey side. The company’s line of natural litter is pretty steep but in line with what other natural litters on the market cost. If you’re willing to spring for it, you’ll pay a whopping $4.00/lb for their micro crystal formula.
Keep in mind that while this price is high, crystals are more absorbent than clay litter, so you need less of it. Plus, crystals excel at odor control, so they can usually go longer between changes.
Fans of clay will be pleased to hear that ExquisiCat clay litter is very affordable (and was a hit in our home!)
Overall, Is ExquisiCat Litter A Good Choice?
If you’re looking for a high-performing litter that works hard to control odor, yes, we think ExquisiCat makes a fine choice.
Every cat parent’s mileage will vary, but we think this litter will be most beneficial in homes where smell is a concern. Perhaps you have a litter box in a confined area, or maybe you have to keep one close to where you eat, sleep, or hang out. In these cases, ExquisiCat can help keep odors to a minimum.
I was most impressed with the brand’s clay litter, which is affordable and clumps really well. I was less impressed with the grass seed’s clumping action, but that comes with the territory. And while it won’t be in everyone’s budget, the brand’s highly absorbent micro crystal litter could be a game-changer for folks hoping to scoop less (and cuddle more).
