Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Senior Litter
I foster and have had from 4 to 13 cats in the Casa at any given time. I've found the Dr. Elsey's silica litter products virtually eliminate odor in the house. All of our critters have adapted to them seamlessly, too.
I tried Dr. Elsey's Senior when one of my geriatric cats was having urinary tract issues. I was sold from the first bag. Yes, it's more expensive, but it lasts much longer than scoopable litters. Bottom line, the easy maintenance and odor control make it a bargain as far as I'm concerned. I've also been satisfied with the "Respiratory" and "Long Hair" products, but keep coming back to the "Senior."
You scoop the solids and mix the litter to distribute the pockets that have absorbed the urine. It will change color as it is used, but as long as the bottom of your litter box is relatively dry, you can keep on using it. I have 7 large pans in the house, and 5-6 bags will fill them. At a 7-8 cat population, I change them approximately once a month. The "Senior" is fine, like sand, so a small mat in front of the litter boxs solved the tracking problem.
This litter is a tad more expensive through Mr. Chewy, but my local stores often don't have the number of bags I need, and not have to schlep to the store and haul the bags is priceless!!
I could go on, but the best recommendation comes from visitors. Folks seem compelled to say things like, "I'd never have known you have cats in the house if I hadn't seen them." When I ask why, they say, "You have so many, and there's no smell."

A God Send
I have 3 cats, one of which I have had litter box problems with her all her life....she always acted like her litter hurt her paws. Then she wouldn't use a litter box if it had been used and not totally cleaned for her. So, I looked up "kitty litter for tender paws" on the Internet and Dr. Elseys Precious Cat came up. I ordered it, changed her litter and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. She actually liked using her litter box...from the first day we have had no more problems.

This product is amazning!
This product is awesome. I have an almost 19 year old cat with arthritist and this is the only litter I will use and she will use. Also it helps me look for renal issues and it never smells bad ever! Can't say enough good things about it!

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 heâs 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 wouldnât say itâs 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.

This litter does what it says it will.
Senior litter has really been helping my elderly (plump!) cat avoid another U.T.I. It's a totally different consistency from normal litter, and the cats seem to like it.
