Rated 4 out of 5 by Ragdolls Many advantages to using this litter - however, might not work for some cats
I have more cats than the average person, so I am in a good position to evaluate this litter and relay what I (and the cats) like and dislike about this litter.
Pro: It does not have a lot of smell or dust compared to regular litters. My allergies are better using this litter. The cats poop on top of the litter - this makes it very easy to scoop it up immediately. The pellets seem to do a good job neutralizing the urine smell. It is considerably less expensive to use.
Cons: Remember the part about poop on top of the litter? You must scoop this up or it is really stinky. 25% of my cats will not walk on this litter - they either prop themselves up on the edge of the litterbox or they avoid it all together. (Note: NONE of my cats are declawed so it isn't that) The pellets just fall apart when the cats urinate so that is not easy to scoop - it is like scooping sawdust. So, I completely change the litter box more often than I did with clumping litter.
Overall: I will continue to use this but I will also continue to make clumping litter available to fussy cats that do not like the feel of the pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathrynJ Feline Pine is the BEST!! EASY, CLEAN, LIGHTWEIGHT...
My multiple indoor cats are messy, particuarly the kittens. Before A&H Feline Pine Original cat litter, my scooping chores were pretty much like a NYC sewer cleaner. But since I rescue feral cats, some wonderful non-profit agencie folks (who constantly supply me with food and supplies) gave me a bag of A&H Feline Pine litter. WOW! My scooping life has been reduced to a few minutes a day! The cats adapt quickly, the pellets make it easy to remove solid waste. Then, the pellets magically became a sawdust-like product, the tray itself was a BREEZE to clean. I just tip it and pour the product into the trash. And, BOOM! guess what? Very little or NO POOP CLING onto the sides! My trays all come out clean. Some sawdust spills out, sure. But it sweeps right up nicely. And I was amazed at how long a bag lasted. I suppose the whole process is efficient with the pellets absorbing their urine. So NO SMELL except a nice pine...Can't beat that. Now I order from Chewy who delivers two bags to my door nearly every month. Thanks, everybody.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Margo44 2 cats - just ok
I'm moving through all the litter options out there, but I don't think Feline Pine is "the one" for me and my 2 male cats. Good thing they are not picky.
What I like:
- Less tracking. The pellets (when they are still pellets) rarely make it out of the box when compared to clumping clay, walnut, wheat, corn, clumping pine.
- Low odor
- Good price
- Although the pellets are low tracking, after about 4-5 days they start turning to sawdust. This tracks!! And knowing that it is the sawdust is what is full of urine is not comforting. Although the sawdust tracking is still easier to vacuum than clay/corn/nut, etc.
- Not as convenient when out of town. I travel frequently for work and have an older neighbor who comes by to scoop once a day if I'm gone. When I'm gone for more than 4 or 5 days, I come home to carpets and a bedspread full of sawdust. I can't bring myself to ask her to change out the whole box.
So, good product, but not for my needs. On to the next litter! And great delivery and service from Chewy as always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cbbean If you don't like a smidgen of odor, then buy this.
This is the best litter for odor control, hands down. I have a multiple-cat household and I've tried almost every type and brand of litter out there, alone and with baking soda. Nothing compares to this. Even in close quarters, you smell nothing. The pellets turn into fluffy flakes that absorb moisture and odor. The only issue I have w/ it is that when you scoop out the feces, the good, unused pellets are in the scooper with it and it is hard to scoop the feces alone, so you waste the good pellets. I'm trying to figure out the solution to it. In any case, I don't care because the odor control makes it all worth it. Also, I love that it is natural because the chemical-based litter deodorizers that people use are toxic and it is very bad for cats to be touching and licking their paws with the deodorizer residue on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evasquez Love it!!!
We order this product to give it a try just because our friend recommended but we didn't know what to expect. Once it came in the mail we immediately wanted to try it and it has definitely change our view of cat litter. We keep our cat's litter box in a bathroom and it smells wonderful, it smells like pine tree. We love it. Our cat did not notice the change he keeps on using his box with out any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melanie Great smell, easy clean up
I love this product bc my cat doesn't track litter all over my house, and it does a good job of eliminating any smells that come from the litter box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by momof2 too bulky
This is my first time trying this product and probably our last. My senior cat doesn't seem the texture and had to be coaxed into using. He likes to bury and its so bulky that its hard to do, so he just scratches and scratches. It also swells up with liquid so it gets quite heavy with use.
The good news is it really controls odor.
