Rated 4 out of 5 by Jasmhugh89 Best so far....
I have searched and hunted and have tried so many different litters and I feel like this one, while not perfect, is what I will be sticking to. It is very low dust and manages odor pretty well. It clumps hard and has no perfumes. My cats are comfortable with it. I feel like in terms of price and quality, that this litter is probably the best. However, it could improve on packaging...I have kept an old tidy cats tub and empty the litter in there whenever I get a new bag. Also, sometimes it seems the product can be inconsistent. My last bag was almost the consistency of sand and didnt clump. I got a hold of Dr Elsey's corporate office and they are very friendly company and explained their issue that working with natural clay and other natural resources can yield inconsistent pulls. They happily gave me a coupon for another bag. So unless some other litter comes along and is a game changer, I feel like I have found the best litter on the market.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicky Not the same/inconsistant/very dusty
I've been buying this stuff for 10 years I think, on and off. It really used to be finely sifted and only had coarse clay pieces and was very dust free. I remember talking to a man at the company and he told me they used the best grade clay and sifted it multiple times so that only the coarsest pieces were left. When they got the boxes was the first I noticed super dusty substance billowing out when I poured it. I found the large bags a bit better but then lately some of them have a totally different color, brownish. I poured some on top of what was already in the box and it was clearly different. It was also extremely dusty. I really don't want my FIV cat eating this stuff. I still put recommend because if you have a cat that doesn't want to use the litter tray they may use this. I just don't know how healthy it is though, for them or for us. I'm searching for an alternative but it's ridiculously hard to find safe cat litter. The pine ones aren't the same either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GwenFarr Great odor control but ridiculously heavy
I switched to this brand from worlds best because of all the great reviews on odor control. It really does have the best clumping, and odor control. That being said.... Scoop, scoop, scoop all you want but when it comes time to replace the litter box with fresh litter you will be sorry! I struggled with it for a few months lugging that incredibly heavy bag, and I cursed each time but resolved to stick with this because there's never a hint of a cat litter box in my house. On my way out with the garbage today struggling with yet another heavy bag the bag opened at the seam in the back of my brand-new car, spilling disgusting cat litter all over, and that was the last straw for me I will be going to another brand. If they ever come up with a lighter formula I will come back and try that but this is too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clarissa Best cat litter ever
I have been searching far and wide for a cat litter like this and Dr. Elsey's products are the best. I tried multiple different ones (Precious cat litter, A touch of outdoors, Respiratory aid from their brand) and they are all great products. I agree with other reviewers that it is heavy but I can live with that. The odor control and scoopability of this product plus the fact that is is not toxic or harmful to the environment or my cats has sold me 100 %. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Companion2Cats Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat is the Best Clumping Litter I've Found
During the 50+ years of kitty companionship, I've used many brands of litter. Dr. Elsey's is, by far, the best I've found. Occasionally, I experience a bag that has more dust than usual. I figure it is due to a "bottom of the barrel" portion of the batch or extremely rough handling during shipment. Nonetheless, the clumping ability and odor control outweigh an occasional dusty bag. Particularly, since previous brands produced clouds of dust and coughing fits. However, aging has made it more difficult to handle the economical 40 lb. bag. This was solved by having saved the plastic buckets from the usage of other brands. Some of which had been spray painted and used to store things like salt for melting ice, potting soil and bird seed. Instead of trying to carry a full bag inside, I place 2 buckets next to the vehicle. Then I pull the bag of litter so that it's partway inside and partway outside of the vehicle. Next, I cut off a corner of the bag, let about half the litter flow into the bucket, lift the corner to stop the flow, switch buckets and empty the remaining litter into the second bucket. Granted this method causes two trips, but I look at it as a way to get more exercise. BTW, those buckets are also useful for scooping litter boxes. Particularly the ones with the "hinged" lids. Just spray the inside with Lysol, insert a medium sized trash bag and replace the lid. Now, it's ready to carry around to scoop multiple boxes. When finished scooping, remove the lid, securely tie up the bag and carry it out to be dumped into the trash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GarfsMom Good stuff, no garbage in it
I've been using this product for several years. My cat and I are very happy with it. It has a dense texture which is great for cats (like mine) who are "diggers". It clumps quickly and the clumps stay together. It controls urine odor very well (my cat is a male) without any additives, and it's about as dust free as you can get for a clay litter. I buy the 40 lb. bag because it's the best buy although I find the price to reasonable for such a good product. I've no plans to use any other kind of litter, I just hope they keep making it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecca Much Easier Scooping!
This product is great. Had just the slightest bit of "dust" my first time pouring it out of the bag into the litter box. Since then NO dust, easier to see waste than the former litter as it clumps up very nicely. No perfumes, which I don't believe is healthy for animals, and cat prefers it over old litter as well. Much easier for her to cover her waste. Very little tracking also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJJ13 Best Cat Litter Out There
This is by far the best cat litter on the market. I have 3 cats and 2 litter boxes and we almost never smell them once we started using this litter. One of the cats as asthma and this litter is also low dust. I also find that this bag of litter lasts longer as we don't seem to go through as much.
