Until now, I have only written on the blog about plant litter, but I know that many of you use other types of cat litter. That is why I prepared for you a review of Canadian Cat – bentonite cat litter.
Few words about Canadian Cat brand
Canadian Cat litter is produced by a Polish producer who is known primarily for his brand Super Benek. Why is Canadian Cat litter so special? The absorbency test, in accordance with DIN 18132, showed a liquid absorption of up to 450%, all thanks to the use of double cat litter activation technology.
Cat litter tests and analysis
We tested Canadian Cat litter with a lavender scent – this is one of the few cat litter smells that my cat Apollo accepted. Canadian Cat is available in 10 liter packs and in three fragrance variants:
- Baby powder
I looked at absorbency, clumping, smell, dusting, home-spreading and capacity properties. I put the cat litter into one litter box, which was used by one cat.
Clumping and absorbency
- very well clumping
- perfectly absorbs moisture
- very good at absorbing odors
- palpable but delicate fragrance
Dusting and spreading around the house
- moderate dust when pouring into the litter box
- moderately spreads around the apartment
10 liters per one cat
- enough for 10 weeks
Dispose of the cat litter
Cat litters should be disposed of in accordance with applicable law. I live in Poland and Polish law doesn’t allow any type of cat litter to be thrown into the toilet. Don’t forget to check out what the law of your country says about this.

My opinion about Canadian Cat litter
Cat litter has very fine and regular granulation, so it is gentle on the cat’s paws. After wetting, it forms compact, non-crumbling balls that can be easily removed with a spatula and thrown into the bin almost immediately.
But super absorbency is not the only advantage of Canadian Cat litter. It actually lasted for 10 weeks (7kg for 1 cat).
The litter dusted slightly when pouring, and sometimes several individual gravels left the litter box on Apollo’s fluffy paws, but most often they stayed on the rug in front of the litter box.
In summary, all the manufacturer’s promises have come true. The Canadian Cat bentonite cat litter is really super absorbent and extremely efficient, and I was really happy with it.
My cat’s opinion
The cat must decide for itself which litter suits him best because in the end, he will use it.
Apollo really enjoyed using Canadian Cat litter with a lavender scent for 10 weeks. Bentonite cat litter was not a complete novelty for him, because already as a kitten he used pebbles.
