Rated 5 out of 5 by Arthur The best clay litter available!
We operate a small non profit shelter in our personal home for cats who have little or no hope of adoption ( primarily due to medical conditions). There are a maximum of 20 adults in the shelter at all times and we use the Ultra exclusively. We find it very effective at odor control, and clumps very hard after sitting for a few minutes after a use. The dust is very minimal compared to other litters we have used which helps with household cleaning and cat respriatory issues. The Dr. Elsey's litter attractant is also beneficial with getting problem cats to use the boxes. We use between 2 to 3 tons per year and buy in the 40 # bag sizes. We have tried them all, this is the best, and surprisingly most economical in the 40# bag. The 40# bag is heavy, but a really good deal compared to the 18# size.

I have tried almost every brand of litter there is. Litter boxes have always been in small storage rooms. Everything smelled like litter and was filled with dust. When cats "went", everything smelled so bad. Found a website that recommended this litter (along with my new favorite canned cat food-Wellness!) and tried it for the heck of if. It really works! Low dust, no perfumy smell, and best of all, it clumps tight. REALLY tight. It does not smell bad at all. Most recent type used was the new pine type, but those did not clump well at all. As a result, lots of wet pieces remained in the box and it smelled so bad after 2 or 3 days and I would have to change the whole box. Just ordered 2 more 40 pound bags. It is pricey, but so worth it if there is no smell, dust and clumps tight. We plan on cleaning out the storage room now and make it an office! Really, this is good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by islandgirl Best litter I've ever used...and I've tried MANY!
Best litter I've ever used and I've tried MANY! Been using for years and years now, occasionally trying something lighter in weight or more earth friendly besides clay but always going back to the Precious because the others never measure up to my needs. Great odor and track control, cats like it, minimal dust, etc. Now that I can have it delivered to my door, weight isn't an issue anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by eyesopen33 Very good cat litter. No dust and problems solved..
This is my first time using this brand of litter. I had to look for a solution as I was using the Fresh Step brand for years but their addition of carbon into their litter caused some problems. For example, my cat's paws would become crusted with dried litter and it was nearly impossible to get off because it was like dried cement within the crevices of her toes. Second, the Fresh Step litter caused a lot of litter to be tracked all over my house, including my bed. Often I would get ready to go to bed but would have to dust litter off of my bed. Not a good thing to have in your bed.
For the positive on this litter, it seems to have solved every problem. No more tracking and no more problems with litter being cemented on my cat's paws. I also absolutely LOVE the fact that this is dust-free. I no longer feel as if I am inhaling harmful litter dust, and I know this litter is also easier on my cat's lungs as well. So yes, I do recommend this brand of litter.

Best clumping litter ever! No dust for you or kitty to breath in. My biggest complaint about clumping litters was the dust that ending up on kitty feet which of course, kitty feet go all around the house including the couches and my bed. And forget it if the kitty feet get wet, then you have tracks everywhere! With this litter, no dusty feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ManxMom3 Outstanding - best litter ever!
I started using this product two years ago - it was recommended by a friend who has done cat rescue for 40 years. We were having problems with our female Manx-mix wetting and defecating all the time outside the litterboxes. I had tried everything and was about at the end of my rope - until I tried the Dr. Elsey litter products. Now she uses the box all the time! We actually started out with Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract in the red bag, which is where you should start if you're having problems. Now we have graduated to this product and I use it in all my litterboxes. All my cats love it! Again, my only complaint is that the clumps are like cement and very hard to clean out. Be sure to keep the litter fairly deep, use a stainless steel scooper ... and buy litterboxes that have a shiny, slick interior. It's much better since I've been doing all that. This is an outstanding product that I can't recommend enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sarah82 This is the BEST litter you will ever find!
We used Tidy Cat and then switched to Fresh Step for years. The smell was hidden but the amount of dust that was accumulating around our home was getting out of hand. No matter how much we cleaned, if we ran our hands across a piece of furniture and smelled it it smelled like the perfumed dust from these litters. We have 7 cats and 7 boxes so that is a lot of dust flying around the house! I started on a quest to find a dust free litter. We tried every brand we could find to no avail. Then, when I thought we were doomed to live in this dusty perfumed existence, I saw a review for Dr Elsey Precious Cat. 99.9% dust free. No scent. Clumping. Multi-cat. Can this be?? I'll be honest, when I picked up the first bag it looked a little out of date in design and it was in a heavy duty plastic bag, I was skeptical. It's not in the fancy cardboard boxes and/or plastic containers I was familiar with. Well folks, we've all been told not to judge a book by it's cover and do not judge this cat litter by it's packaging. We have been using Dr Elsey's Precious Litter for almost 1 year and we will NEVER go back to another brand. It clumps, it is odor free AND virtually dust free! I say virtually because of course there is gonna be a little dust from any litter but you are not going to find a litter more dust free than this. Believe me, I've tried them all. Now, I will say this: Some people complain that it doesn't contain the odor's as well as some other litters. However, a lot of people are lax when it comes to cleaning out the boxes. If you're going to have cats, you have to practice a good litter box cleaning regiment. We scoop all of our 7 boxes on a daily basis. We add litter to the box as needed and we completely change out the litter at least once per month. That being said, everyone that comes to our home says the same thing: "We would never have guessed you had cats." And believe me, I ask people too! I'm a little paranoid about such things. Even my family that doesn't like animals (if you can imagine such a thing?) and would almost be delighted to tell me "yes, your house smells like a big litter box", even they tell me my house smells clean and there is no trace of litter box stink. If you're over the dust and perfumed smells, give Dr Elsey's Precious Litter a try.
