Description

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Senior Litter absorbs urine and odor on contact and traps it inside the crystals to keep a cat’s genital area clean to help prevent urinary tract infections. It’s small particle size and dust fines also coat and dehydrate cat feces to reduce odor. Precious Cat Senior is cleaner and hypo-allergenic, as it contains no organic material such as wheat, pine, corn and paper litters. Each bag contains a free Litter Box Solutions Booklet.

Key Benefits

  • Helps prevent kidney failure and urinary tract infection
  • Small particle and dust fines coat and dehydrate feces
  • Traps urine and odor on contact inside crystals
  • Biodegradable — when put in a compost pile or landfill, the material completely biodegrades back to the earth in one month
  • Non-toxic

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 Dr. Elsey's Senior into a clean litter box, using half as much as you would with a clay based litter. Top off the Senior 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 Dr. Elsey's Senior.

Special Note

Some products are changing from bags to boxes. You may receive either packaging until the transition is complete, but rest assured that you are receiving the same great litter!

  • Huh? Did I mess it up?

    By on

    I don't know what I missed. This stuff was awful. My cats used it well enough but it didn't solve the issue my older cat was having. Sure it petrified the poop but the urine never clumped. I mean not ever. So as I was scooping the dust was an awful mix of the litter and powdered urine. I really hate leaving negative comments but I was shocked, truly, at the out come because of all the great reviews. I threw all of it into my back garden (because it is supposed to be biodegradable...) and moved on...

  • Great for its purpose!

    By on

    I have a senior cat and a long-haired cat. Both of them benefit by this litter, and so do I. Poop is dessicated quickly, you just scoop it easily because the litter is dry. It doesn't clump, pee is absorbed into the crystals and ceases to smell. When it's completely saturated, just replace all of it. How long it lasts depends on how many cats use it. One package lasts us about a month. You can't buy a monster bag of it like cheap litters but it's so much nicer. Having next-day delivery from Chewy is fantastic, I don't have to get to the store desperately in rain or heat. (This is Texas.)

  • The best litter I have ever bought!!

    By on

    This is the best litter I have ever used for my cats! I have a problem boy who likes to poop on the couch (covered) for over a year... I knew he was avoiding the box, but didn't know why (he always pees in the box, thank God) After several visits to the vet & even putting him on medication to try to help, I actually set up 6 different types of litter all at the same time to see if he would use one or if he preferred any of them. The day I added this litter he pooped in it! It has now been a week & a half & he has only been going in this litter exclusively! No more on the couch! It is very fine, like grains of sand, so it doesn't bother or hurt his paws like i think the rest of them did. I love This is the best litter I have ever used for my cats!

I love that it absorbs the urine & bacteria, it makes it so much easier to clean the boxes!! Just scoop the poop & stir up the litter & you're done! I have been raving about this litter to anyone that will listen & will never use a different litter again! All 4 of my cats prefer it to the others and they are all almost completely switched over to it. I would recommend adding a whole new box with just this litter next to what they're presently using... If you mix it with the old litter it might still bother their paws & make them avoid it, too. Bottom line is, if you're on the fence or looking for a great new type of litter- BUY THIS ONE!!!!! … more

  • Best litter we've used

    By on

    Have used a lot of different types of litter over 40 years of having cats and like this the best - and not only for senior cats. It absorbs the pee and dehydrates the poo. Eliminates odor. Daily cleaning is easy - just remove the poo and stir the rest of the litter (Note: this is NOT a clumping litter). It is a little dusty when you change the litter but I have not found that to be troublesome. Minimal amount gets tracked out of the box.

  • Dust is not great with this litter

    By on

    We love Dr. Elsey's products normally, but we bought this for our elderly cat that has a problem with UTIs, and we couldn't stand to scoop the darn stuff! This is a "crystal" litter - based on silica (the stuff that comes in those little "do not eat" packets to keep moisture out of foods, vitamins, electronics, etc.) that I'm sure was safe and worked great for drying up the wet spots in the litterbox, but the silica dust that became airborn with cleaning the box was awful and left a bad taste on our tongues that lasted several minutes. It also made our cat runny-eyed and a little sneezy, so I'm afraid it was a "no" for us. Maybe it would work better with auto-scooping boxes?

  • Best litter ever

    By on

    I discovered this litter on accident, and will never use anything else for my cat. It's easy to find things that need scooped out, BM. Urine just disappears in the silica pellets. There is no and I mean No odors

  • Litter is fine, but didn't fix our problem

    By on

    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.

And, with Chewy's Auto-Ship, we get a re-stock of nice fresh brown packing paper every couple of weeks! … more

  • Impossible to scoop

    By on

    I was expecting a scoopable litter, but I got one that only changed color. My single cat has two litter boxes, each with different litter, and he uses them for different functions. When he urintes in the Precious Senior Cat Litter-filled box, the litter turns green. It's a pretty color but impossible to scoop. I won't be using this again.

  • Cat is older than dirt

    By on

    He's old, has kidney disease and he's got one leg in the kitty grave. This is the only litter he will use so we're in it for however long we have left with him. The litter is clean, we don't find it all over the house and it doesn't have a bad smell.

  • Best litter out there

    By on

    I have been using this litter since my cats were a few months old. My kitten had a uti so i purchased this even though it said its for senior cats. What I found is that there is absolutely no odor! I have two male cats and I feed them canned food to which I add water. That means they urinate alot. There is never a smell. They are both 10 years old and have never had any uti's since. It is not cheap, but it is worth every penny. It is so much better than the clumping litter. Dr. Elsey makes the best litter out there.
