Rated 5 out of 5 by jammers19 I really like it!
I started using a newspaper litter when my cat had his back leg amputated. I was planning on using it only as long as I had to because I figured it was going to do nothing for odors. Boy was I wrong! It does a great job on the odors, and now I don't have that "litter" smell anymore either. With another paper litter that I tried, the pellets swelled up and dried out but always retained their shape. With this litter, as the wet pellets dry, they turn into a powder and go to the bottom of the box. Maverick's leg has been healed for a long time now but I'm staying with this litter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cort light smell, can use as scoopable litter
I wanted to get away from the dusty clay litter. I tried Yesterdays News once in the past and hated it but after my cat was diagnosed with asthma, my vet said to get off the clay litters. This time around, I used YN differently--and really like it! Technically, its not scoopable. Technically. HOWEVER, I fill my box with about three-4 inches of this stuff, just like I did with clay, and twice a day, I slowly "wipe away" the upper, dry layer of YN to reveal (ta dahh) the wet layer. Then I scoop up the wet stuff and shake the rest of the litter around a bit. Scoops just fine! I have four cats, two litterboxes, and scoop twice a day (sometimes three)..and the boxes end up lasting about 5-7 days. (I lift poop with the scooper and just shake the scooper a little left to right, allowing the YN granules to slip through) No dust, no harmful stuff, NO asthma attacks (not even ONE!), lightweight, longish lasting and easy. Far easier to clean the box too at the end of the week because the litter doesnt get stuck at the bottom...just dump and wash. Very little tracking. Does it smell?? The unscented kind smells fine for about 4-5 days, this kind smells fine for the 5-7 days. I mix both kinds (unscented/scented) and sometimes add a little baking soda. (Im a clean freak with a very clean and orderly home.) I took off one star because to me, its a little pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peach1010 Why did it take me so long?!?!
I love this litter!! I began using this a few weeks ago after one of my male cats had P/U surgery. I have 5 cats and had 2 litter pans so I swapped it out in both and sprinkled their old litter Fresh Step Extreme on top just so it smelled the same. I gotta say I love the Yesterdays News! It clumps all the wet litter together and does not leave that slimy residue clay litter does that you can get out unless you wash the entire pan. However keep in mind since this product does clump all together so that it all comes out each scoop you will go through more of it. The litter doesn't "sift" like clay litter does. Overall this is much healthier for my kitties and us with no dust floating around from the clay. And I don't have to worry about it sticking to the cats feet and them licking it off to clean! If you are on the fence just fall into the Yesterdays News!! You won't be sorry.

Less dust with this litter! I was using regular clay litter and clumping clay litter which was very dusty. It took my cat awhile to get used to this litter as she was playing with the pellets. It masks odors well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by catlover Wow! Cats love it
This is the absolute best pellet litter and the cats love it. Superior odor control even with the poop uncovered. That's amazing. So here's the scoop--It obviously does not clump but is so easy to maintain. Just put a thin layer in the litter box. Scoop out the poop and just re-shuffle the pellets around. You'll need the Catit litter scoop with extra large holes. Then when you see that the pellets have expanded quite a bit and are breaking down, just toss it and add fresh pellets. Do not fill box much. Just a sufficient layer. It does break down but is not at all dusty. There is no urine odor which is amazing. There are reviewers who say you can scoop out the urine soaked pellets but it's challenging. The pellets do expand some and look a little darker but still not that simple to do. Now there are people who would like the poop covered. If that's the case, this isn't for you. The cats do cover it but it is still somewhat exposed. But remember, no odor and no tracking. If you want a natural, dust free litter that is not pellet, I highly recommend Okokat Clumping litter. See my review. I use both litters just to give the cats a choice. They use both equally so no preference.

I like that there aren't toxins or dust but it doesn't cover the smells.

Very little dust from this product and better for the environment as it's recycled paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FerretMom My ferrets like the smaller pellets better.
I foster for a local ferret shelter, and use quite a bit of litter. This brand and style is my favorite. It cleans up easier, scoops easier, and my ferrets seem more apt to use it than other litters.
