Description

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Long Haired Litter is safe and healthy for your cat. It is an amorphous silica gel infused with hydrolyzed herbs to draw cats to the litter box. Long Haired Litter traps urine and odor on contact and has the right particle size that long haired cats prefer. It will not adhere to the cat’s long fur and it will not color the coat. Each jug contains a free Litter Box Solutions Booklet.

Key Benefits

  • Silica gel litter infused with hydrolyzed herbs draws cats to the litter box
  • Particle size long haired cats prefer, won't adhere to or color kitty's coat
  • Traps urine and odor on contact
  • Biodegradable, hypo-allergenic and non-toxic
  • Easy to scoop, low tracking formula

Cautions

Always wash your hands thoroughly after waste removal. A parasite sometimes found in cat feces can cause toxoplasmosis. Please do not flush cat litter in toilets or dispose of it outdoors in gutters or storm drains.

Transition Instructions

  • Pour Precious Cat into a clean litter box, using half as much as you would with a clay based litter. Top off the Precious Cat with the litter you are using now, mixing as you add.
  • Give your cat time to get used to the crystal texture.
  • Once your cat is used to the crystal texture (about one week), empty the litter box completely into the trash, and refill with Precious Cat.

Instructions

  • Pour one inch of Precious Cat into a clean litter box.
  • Remove solid waste daily and rake crystals to ensure freshness. Litter does not form scoopable clumps.
  • A single litter box filled with Precious Cat can handle multiple cats but we recommend using more than one litter box if you have more than one cat.
  • Crystals may become discolored. The color does not affect the performance. One application will typically last two weeks depending upon use. After two weeks, completely dump the contents of the box and wash with mild soap and hot water.
  • Refill with one inch of Precious Cat.

  • It worked well for what it was but...

    By on

    My cat is a Domestic Longhair and she is picky. I really liked this litter because it didn't track as much as the Tidy Cats we had been using. It didn't stick to her fur as much, too, which is a plus. We tried to ease her into this litter as recommended, but like I said, homegirl is picky. So now we're back to Tidy Cats. But if your longhair isn't picky, 10/10 would recommend. No smell, no tracking, and it was easy to get out of the litter box.

    My kitten loves this litter. She even plays in it, she loves the colorful crystals. she is a short hair kitty but still enjoys this litter out of all of the rest we have tried for her. Its even great when you are changing the litter and it always smells fresh! wonderful wonderful wonderful. 10/10 recommend Chewy and Dr. Elsey's precious cat long hair litter.

  • no more poopy paws

    By on

    I have part Maine Coons so they've got the signature long fur between the toesies I was having trouble with them getting poop and pee litter stuck in their toe and long leg fur. This stuff absorbs the pee right away and the crystals dry out the pooh so when they cover their poop and revisit their box later, poop doesn't get in their fur! Sadly, it does not have very good smell control. It doesn't take long for the box to smell awful.

  • Okay product

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I bought this litter because we have multiple cats and some prefer the crystals. My long haired cat did not have any issues with this litter sticking to her fur but the colored crystals stained our litter box horribly. The litter also is not great at locking in urine odors. After about 2 days I was already smelling a strong urine odor. The litter also clumped together in the corners where my cats had urinated multiple times and was hard to remove from the box when scooping.

  • Great product (with reservations)

    By on

    I like this product very much although I have used Dr. Elsey's Senior for years and until recently preferred it slightly. Both of them are extremely effective at containing odors, in that the crystals absorb urine immediately and desiccate feces. They're non-clumping so you don't have to deal with disposing of clumps. This one has larger crystals, though, which I assume is why it's meant for long hair, so it doesn't stick. The Senior worked for me, and the crystals being smaller meant they weren't as unpleasant to step on with my bare feet. But recently the quality of the Senior litter changed. It was inconsistent in the content of the green crystals and the texture degenerated to practically I like this product very much although I have used Dr. Elsey's Senior for years and until recently preferred it slightly.

It was inconsistent in the content of the green crystals and the texture degenerated to practically all dust. It floats in the air and settles on every surface, and it's just like baby powder. So I switched to Long Hair. It's working better but the crystals are still hard on my feet, and the first container didn't last as long as a container of Senior. … more

  • Skeptical Mom

    By on

    I have 2 long haired cats and was skeptical but purchased it anyway. Works excellent. Turns yellow when used but no smell and I can smell a cat box anywhere. Does not clump but also does not stick to their fur. We've had no tracking of any kind with this product. I'll buy again.

  • Great for long haired cats

    This is a really good litter because it doesn't stick to their fur. It doesn't seem to smell either and nice for show cats.

  • Big improvement for litter box avoidance

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    We are using this with the Dr. Elsey's senior crystals and a great microfiber litter mat from Chewy. There is no tracking (but that was mainly the mat, we think). Odor control is inferior to old clumping litter (or we'd give it 5 stars) but 7 year old male kitty who has bouts of anxiety pooping is using the box religiously now. We just hope it lasts if he has another upset. His last episode was over a year ago and we thought it might be the pooping on the mat for good until we got Dr. Elsey's. We tried this combo for UTI and tracking and it exceeded our expectations. Almost didn't want to jinx it writing a review. Thanks Chewy!

  • Kitties love it!

    By on

    Both my asthma ridden kitty and my picky calico love this litter! Asthma kitty has been coughing significantly less and both kitties adjusted to it immediately with no problem. We've tried everything from paper pellets to clay litter to the "cheaper" version of this crystal stuff and this is hands down THE BEST! Very good with odor control - my friends/family have even commented on how my house doesn't "smell like cats" anymore! The crystals dry up the poop so it doesn't smell for very long after being "deposited" and the tracking really is SO much less than the other stuff we've tried. With that said, it does still track a little but never outside the immediate vicinity of the litter box so Both my asthma ridden kitty and my picky calico love this litter!

One box usually lasts 2-3 weeks for our two kitties because we are neat freaks and switch it all out every week religiously and have an extra large box but it could last for 1.5-2 weeks if necessary. … more

    They've changed the formula. It used to be sand, now it's pearls. With the sand formula, no dust. With the pearls formula loads of dust. Won't try again
