I'll start with the pro- this litter is very fine and does not track very much; less sweeping!
The cons- it is very dusty and does not clump at all. It does turn green were the girls tinkle so it's easy to find.

We like this litter. The cats seem to love digging in it and covering their business. I feel safe having Dr. Elsey's senior for my two senior cats. One bag fills each large litter box to the appropriate depth. Both cats are on medication that causes them to be great urine producers. I've been changing the boxes after 11 - 12 days. At that point there is no smell at all so they probably could go longer but I'd rather not push it and see. It's certainly not dusty like clay litters and it absorbs urine as advertised. Just remove the poo and stir the box, easy-peasy. It does track. The Dog Gone Smart Litter Mats work great for capturing scatter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olga34 BEST LITTER FOR SENIOR CATS!!!
If you have a senior cat then you understand what I mean. My 14 yr old cat can't hold his legs up, so he actually sits on the litter. This makes me go crazy because his fur gets wet with urine and it sticks to his "stuff" and makes the cat and myself really uncomfortable. Then he walks around the house and sits on the couch getting urine all over. Disaster!
Well, ever since I started using this cat litter we have been SAVED!!!
It is made of silica crystals, which are natural and will not harm the cat. It has a little thicker texture than sand. The litter actually absorbs and sucks up the liquid. Almost like a diaper, lol.
The only drawback is that you need to change the litter more often and that depends on how many times your cat urinates. My cat is on prednisone, which makes him drink a lot of water so, I change the litter in one week as opposed to 2 weeks as stated on the packaging. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cybermeez Decent Cat Litter
I bought this litter because of its advertised benefit of helping prevent urinary tract and kidney infections. My cat is not a senior, but he’s had at least one kidney infection. Such infections can lead to chronic renal failure, a devistating disease. Dr. Elsey's is advertised as being scoopable, though I wouldn’t say it’s a clumping litter as the balls crumble easily. My cat seems to like it and had no trouble switching over from his old recycled paper type litter despite the dramatic difference in texture. The product does have a couple of drawbacks. The batch I got was rather dusty, though they are now advertising that it is 99% dust free so I may have gotten an older batch. It also tracks very easily and crunches under your feet. Daily sweeping will be required to deal with this. All in all these two things are minor if Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Senior Litter does what it says it does and helps keep my cat from getting another kidney infection.

My 16 year old kitty was limping when he got out of the litter box, so I tried Dr.Elsey's. It is lighter and he no longer limps out of the box. We like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sporty Recommend it to everyone!
I love this litter. After using clay litter for years, the tile floors actually come cleaned now. When I hand washed the floor before the clay always left a film that you could never get off the floors.
Its pricey but I am sick of carrying the heavy clay bags and storing them. Dr Elsey's lasts a lot longer so it is at least a third of what I was doing before, which makes a big difference in time for me!
So my time, my health and my floors are all better for me. My cat's health and happiness is also much better. So for the extra price it is worth it to me. It is a little dusty, but I did not like the respiratory one he offered. It didn't last as well or do as well. Oh, and I have power machines and it doesn't break them down all of the time like the clay did when it got too wet or heavy for the machine.
I rescue cats so I won't mention how many cats I have but its a lot to take care of correctly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raven perfect for my home!
To say thia is amazing is not giving it enough credit! I have 11 cats and 4 HUGE litter boxes. And this litter is awsome! Keeps the smell non existent the clean up is minimal when compaired to other clumping litters and best of all the cats use it!! Not like a clumping litter that they won't touch after a few weeks, this litter lasts a whole month with my 11 cats. I do clean once a day faithfully!
