Peter Borchelt, Ph.D., a noted animal behaviorist who is the director of the Animal Behaviour Clinic at The Animal Medical Center in New York, says, "Most cats do use the litter we give them most of the time, but cats are individuals, too, and have their own likes and dislikes regarding the type of material they like to dig, cover and eliminate in."
All cats normally exhibit certain behaviours when eliminating, beginning with a search for a suitable material to use. Once a cat selects its most suited material, it will dig, or attempt to dig, a shallow depression. After eliminating, the cat will often dig once again to cover up the waste.
According to Borchelt, for one reason or another, cats often feel the litter they are given is not suitable.

Dr. Peter Borchelt, director of Animal Behavior Consultants, Inc., in Brooklyn, New York, has studied cats' responses to cat-box fillers. Dr. Borchelt suggests that ground wood (not pellets or shavings) and wheat litters may be promising alternatives to clay litters in terms of feline acceptance, "clumpability," and odor control.
According to Dr. Borchelt, the one sure way to get rid of an undesirable odor is to remove the cause of the odor--more specifically, scoop or change the litter.
