Rated 5 out of 5 by CatandDogMomma Glad we switched from clay litter
My extremely fuzzy footed Stevie was getting the clay litter stuck in her paws almost daily. It was hard on both of us to wash them. She uses it with a disposable pan. I scoop frequently and dump it completely every few days and re-use the pan for about 3 weeks. The litter surprisingly helps with odor control too. Since it is much lighter than clay, it makes for carrying the bag to the trash so much easier me! The other 2 kitties are taking to it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoraC This IS Petsmart's Exquisicat Paper Litter
This was a very difficult review to write primarily because I really just want to keep Chewy's entire stock for myself.
My daughter has created a mini cat rescue in our home. I joke she has cleaned up every neighborhood we have lived in but it's true. Needless to say, with cats comes litter and due to my son's health issues, we have been using paper litter for the dust-free attribute.
We gravitated from Yesterday's News to these softer white pellets when we found them at Petsmart under their Exquisicat brand. My local store runs under poor management, though, and their stock is hit or miss. Over time, I have happily switched all of my purchases to Chewy, barring the litter. This is just great litter and it is only available in store.
The final straw was another wasted trip to Petsmart for litter only to have them tell me as soon as I walked in the door, "We're out but there will be a truck in two days."
I went home and started scouring the Chewy website. When I came upon the litter, I ordered 4 bags and hoped for the best. All I can say at this point is I am going to have to do something special for our FedEx driver due to the volume and weight of our current deliveries.
Review: Great litter, just save enough for me please.

The order arrived in about 4 days. All five of my cats like it and it retards odors and is very easy to sift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fluffer WOW! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
I have seven cats, most of them rescued, who came to me using clay cat litter. After years of struggling with the weight (heavy), dust clouds, and scrapping the muck and cement like stuff off the bottom of the litter box, I switched to Fresh News. What a difference. Lighter weight, very little dust, and cleaning out the litter box completely takes a few minutes and little effort. I like to dump litter twice a week and start over. I also scoop numerous times a day, but the scooping with this litter is not the same as clay. No clumping. So I use a litter scooper with wide slots and sift. The unused dry litter pellets drop through and the used, expanded pellets stay in the scooper. This is not a perfect scooping situation, but it is better than the negative effects of clay. Another plus, I feel the odor control is better with no fragrances. Also, I have one cat that is really stubborn about using a new type of litter and this has been the only brand that she adapted to quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by allercat kinda weird - but good for ALLERGIES!
good odor control - good for cats allergies (and mine) - good price.
downside is that my cat was afraid of the large pieces (look like cigarette butts) and there is a lot of waste with this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarinSF A healthy alternative to clay based litter
After reading about the health dangers posed to cats and people from sillica in clay based cat litter I looked into alternatives. I was encouraged by reviews of products made with recycled newspaper, and Fresh News in particular appealed to me as it was described by users to have a "neutral" smell.
It is indeed very neutral, with no perfume or masking scent, and it very effectively absorbs and controls the odor of cat waste. Our cats made the transiton immediately.
Equally important to me is the fact that there is no harmful dust, annoying grit and mess on our floors (I only see the occasional pellet escaping the litter box).
It's very easy to clean out the cat box with just a wipe using a paper towel and sanitizing cleaner-no chiselling of clay clumps or hosing down.
This is not a clumping litter, but unless you only clean your litter box very infrequently, it's a perfect product for those of us who are looking for an environmentally friendly, clean and safe cat litter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CatDad710 Smell after a couple days.
1st time we tried this brand with the recycled newspaper and it will be the last. We tried the other brands and the smell was deterred for a few more days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeeDee This IS the BEST
First of all, no odor. Add to that no residual dust. This litter absorbs. Also cats don't dig so much, they just hop into the box and do their thing. I highly recommend this product.
