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


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.

  • 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.

Customer Reviews

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Long Hair Litter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Litter is fine, but didn't fix our problem We have an elderly long-hair gentleman (Pushkin) who has started leaving his doodles on the floor near a litter box. He pees in the box just fine, so it's not total litter box aversion. He's been deaf, hyperthyroid, with some kidney disfunction for years, but stable. We've tried sanitary clipping, boxes with lower sides, less litter in the box, and ensured his privacy --all to no avail. The next thing to try was different litter. He now has four(!) litter boxes available to him overnight - 1 with Dr. Elsey's Senior Litter and 1 with Dr. Elsey's Long Hair Litter (each with a topping of his old clay litter for transition), plus 2 boxes with his old regular Dr. Elsey's Ultra Clumping Litter. The result? Nothing has changed. Pushkin is happy to pee in all four boxes, but still poops outside the boxes. At least he leaves his poop on brown paper placed on the floor near his litter box. And, with Chewy's Auto-Ship, we get a re-stock of nice fresh brown packing paper every couple of weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The HOLY GRAIL of litter!! First, I want to say that the name of this litter is misleading and I almost didn't buy it because it's for "long hair" kitties. I've used the Precious regular litter but it was still stinky and have tried just about every other litter on the market with very little success. This one had great reviews so I said what the heck, and added it to my cart. WOW! It dries up the poo without many crystals sticking to it and I can dump it right in the toilet. You can leave the poo there all day and there's no smell. Only stinks when they first "go" but then the crystals start working. The urine is absorbed and a tray of litter will last about 2 weeks so this jug will suffice for about 6 weeks. I've used the Scoopfree litter for one other cat for years and it completely pales in comparison to this litter. The odor control for this litter is incredible. Seriously, it will change your life! Oh, and the tracking is non existent! Try this, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Cat Loves This Litter! We have a long haired cat and four with short hair. Our cat with long hair likes to go outside of the box at times. We were at about 99% avoidance of the box and we knew our cat had no medical issues since we had that checked out, too. We had several other types of litter in the different litter boxes we have and still he was not compliant or consistent in using the box. This litter has been a hit with him almost all of the time now. He still lets us know when he is unhappy about something, but he is much more consistent in using the box instead of the carpet. I highly recommend giving this litter a try. It's great at absorbing urine and you just have to scoop out the solids. All of our cats love it, so even the short hairs give it an excellent rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for all cats! As a rescue foster, we have an ever changing population of cats. We started using this litter to help a kitty with litter box issues. When I put this litter in the box, he couldn't wait to get in. The attractant works! No more issues and the kitty has been adopted. With this litter, I realized there was no urine order. It also sucks the moisture from the fecies. Daily scooping and mixing is an easier chore. Not dusty, like clay. Now it is alll I use. The perfect "better" litter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We adopted a long hair kitty and she had just had her spaying done. She is long haired and her tail doesn't go up very high. She was dragging her ki We adopted a long hair kitty and she had just had her spaying done. She doesn't hold up her tail very good She was dragging her kitty litter out with her tail and spreading it everywhere. I read about this litter in a review on Chewey's. It is amazing and she doesn't drag out the litter with her tail or even get it anywhere. It stays in the box and what is most amazing is the urine just disappears. Just clean out the poop and stir it around. Highly recommend this at this price. Get this for your long haired cat, or cat that is messy. Best litter I have used for a cat! Chewy got this shipped right away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best type of litter for cats & people! I've used all sorts of litter & as far as having to change litter box, tracking, smell & cats liking it, this is BY FAR the best litter on the market for general use! There are litters that add crystals to them, yet for health, the urine (& bacteria) are kept inside each individual grain of litter, which makes it a healthier option for your cat AND you! One thing that takes a little getting used to is keeping the litter shallower for your cat! This may seem like it won't be as effective, bit it's better for your cat's feet, as the crystals are relatively light weight, and thus if you make the litter too deep, it might be uncomfortable for your cat! The litter works VERY well! You scoop droppings after they've gone, once a day, then when you start to see any urine remaining on the bottom of the box, THEN it's time to change it! (You might see the crystals change go an opaque yellowish color, which tells you the litter is doing its job! The urine is trapped inside the microtubules of the crystals, thus keeping it away from you & your cat! That means it's healthier for bot feline & human family members! If your cat has never used it before, or if your cat has been adopted from a shelter & been attacked in a cat box, or had similar experiences, you might want to mix litters, to give them a chance to get used to the different feel, smell, etc. Keep the box in the same location! It can help too to use another box with the old litter, andtheir regular box with a mix of old & new, then after a week, go to just this litter & s/he should be fine! (Reading the directions on the box REALLY pays off! I already have 3 boxes & so I kept each one different so they'd have a choice. The girls weren't OK with the one box with just this litter until I lowered the level of the litter! This grain too is a medium pebble size as far as crystal litters go, which may be more comfortable for Kitty's feet than some of the bigger pebble brands. Once I switched from the larger pebbles to these slightly smaller ones, the girls are now fine with it! (I'm tired, and I know my tenses are off... Been a LONG week!) Anyhow, I can't stress enough go keep this litter shallow! Scoop daily for poop and this far, I have 5 cats, 3 boxes filled about 1-1 1/2" deep, and we are already about at a week, and it may be time to change soon, yet hardly any smells from the box! If you forget to scoop, this litter will dry out the poop, and it won't smell as much as other litters! :) You can leave the box, but why would you want to? This is NOT a clumping litter, so don't expect that! This litter makes it FAR easier to really see your cat's feces should you need to inspect your cat's droppings,,and there's a type that wi has a reactive colorant that will indicate if you need to take your cat into see the doctor for urinary tract infections! I've likely tried just about every single type & subtype of cat litter on the market, and always come back to the crystal litter! It's light weight, yet doesn't track all over like many lighter weight litters do! Saves your back AND you don't change the box NEARLY as often, so in reality, it isn't much more expensive that buying cheap litters, but the health benefits for both kitties & humans (including your back!) is well worth a few extra dollars a month for a few cat boxes! Your house will smell better too! By far, the best litters are the crystal litters, and while they DO have differences in size of grains, which can make a difference to your cat(s), these are the healthiest option for all, IMHO! Highly recommended for anyone with back problems, as well as older kitties with arthritis too (get the smallest grain of litter you can for your older cats, and make the litter shallow for your senior cats!) This stuff will not stick to your cat at all either!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bless you Dr Elsey! This litter is amazing! Dr Elsey's cat litters are seriously the best! He's a veterinarian who's a bit of an oddball in my opinion, but clearly very dedicated to cats. He researched various textures, granule size, and other aspects of litter composition (now you know why I said he's a bit of an oddball). Then he developed this unique litter. And there is nothing else like it. It's awesome! I say his litters are the "best" because the promise he makes is actually true! (I had been skeptical, but was desperate to find something that would help.) He says "cats will use it first time, every time". My cat who routinely pooped in various spots in the house, stopped the minute I put this litter in her box. I was incredulous. And all but ecstatic. She never went outside a box again. Ever. This stuff has no smell that I can detect but apparently there's something in it that cats can smell that attracts them to use it (along with the texture). That being said, it also somehow covers up litter box odors so it's not obvious to company that I own cats, even though the litter boxes are on the main floor of the house. This crystal kind is more like little pebbles, no sharp edges. And you really only need about 2 inches of it in the box. It does not clump which I find a plus. The urine gets absorbed into the crystals. Since I've used Dr Elsey's exclusively I've never had a cat go outside one of the litter boxes. I also buy Dr Elsey's regular litter that's in another box near this pebbled kind. Both of my cats use both kinds, but my long-haired one seems to prefer this. Possibly because the pebbles are less likely to get stuck in the very long fur that's between her toes? Or it drops off her very very furry bum faster than the other? I don't know and I don't care. I'm just happy that since I've used Dr Elsey's litters exclusively for years now, I've never found any "surprises" on the carpet. Well, except for the occasional hairball.
