When browsing at Costco, we noticed they had Scoop Away Cat Litter for a great price. So, we decided to give it a try.
The Scoop Away at our Costco was Scoop Away Complete. Unfortunately, it turned out to be scented! The cats used it, though, and I liked how it clumped. I very much dislike scented litter, and it’s on the list of items we don’t have in the house around the cats.
So, we ordered a box of Scoop Away Unscented from Chewy. This review is based on Scoop Away Unscented and Boxiecat Unscented.
Comparing the Scoop Away Litter vs. the Boxiecat Litter
Both litters are clay clumping and claim to be low dust. The texture of both is fine, and the clay pieces are small.
As you can see in the picture, they look very similar. And both litters clump nicely and nearly instantly. I did a clump test in the video below.
The Scoop Away had much more dust when poured into the litter box than the Boxiecat. So the Scoop Away claim of “Dust Free Scooping” must be referring to after the litter is in the litter box. I noticed very little dust from Scoop Away or Boxiecat litter when scooping.
For whatever reason, I had difficulty pushing in the cardboard piece at the top of the Scoop Away box to make the opening to pour the litter. You can see me struggle in the video below! The Boxiecat bag is easily cut open with scissors to make the pour spout.
Scoop Away vs. Boxiecat Cost
There is a significant difference in the cost between Scoop Away and Boxiecat.
We use Chewy’s Autoship feature for our cat litter needs. Unfortunately, Boxiecat isn’t sold at our local pet store. Below is the amount we paid for each cat litter. As you can see, the Boxiecat is about half as much as the Boxiecat.
The prices in the picture (from my auto-ship) may have been sale prices, as sometimes Chewy runs sales!

Which Cat Litter Did We Choose?
Many of the features of Boxiecat and Scoop Away, cat litter are similar. However, the Scoop Away box was harder for me to open and was dustier when poured into the litter box.
There is not any noticeable dust from either when scooping the litter. When refilling the litter boxes, we make sure the cats are not nearby to limit the amount of dust they are exposed to.
My cats did not show a preference for either litter. However, the litters look and feel about the same, and the clumping is excellent with both.
We are switching to Scoop Away Unscented Cat Litter based on the significantly lower price. The lower price will help us save on the monthly cost of our cats.
