Great litter!

I actually bought this thinking I was buying crystal cat litter, so when I received it, I was a little upset. I have three cats, and one of them was peeing outside of the litter box. The vet said it was stress. Since I have used this litter, he has now been using the box. I am so thrilled! Also, this litter is very low dust so that makes me very happy. I notice no bad smells either. It is a win, win, win! Thank you so much!

Pawesome Litter!

Best litter I have felt on all four of my paws in all my years! Mom is no longer irritated by me trailing litter on her floor and she claims she can't smell a thing...so I have to announce I'm pooping extra loud now. 20/20 toe beans awarded.

My cat is happy

My old lady cat has asthma and the doctor ordered this litter to her. Right now, it is impossible to find this item in physical stores. My orders from chewy arrive promptly and in purrfect condition. Cat and I are happy with this litter.

Extremely dusty!

We've been using Dr Elsey's Ultra Unscented litter and decided to try this version since our cat has asthma. This is horribly dusty and there were clouds of dust every time we scooped - tried another batch and it was the same. This is dangerous for asthmatic kitties. Went back to the original which is not as bad as this version.

Cat litter

This cat litter is excellent for dust free use. I like the texture of it, so there is less tracking when my cats get done with their business. I would recommend this for people that suffer from asthma or respiratory problems

good and not so good

Does help with respiratory, smell and tracking. Does not clump well. Makes for a dirty litter. For the first time with one of my kitties, he messed right outside the box.

DUSTY almost like sand

Our mom bought on recommendation of Chewy vet. When she opened the shipping box the odor was horribly strong. Like a human bathed in perfume. Our mom waited for a month before adding it to the bottom of the pan and putting our current litter on top. Boy was it dusty when she poured it in the pan. We all thought that was strange. Especially since it was prescribed for our respiratory problems. But we tried it. Since she used it both of us cats had to get a shot to help us breath. Mom says every time she sweeps or vacuums it’s like she’s at a beach with lots of sand. We don’t like this litter.

Awesome litter - be careful of shipping

I love this litter and more importantly, my cat seems to prefer this litter over any other. Unfortunately, I am reminded why I don't order this litter via Chewy and pay more to get it at my local store. The package came ripped again and litter is everywhere. It isn't a better deal when you can't use the product.

DO NOT buy if your cat has respiratory issues

The respiratory relief cat litter may have properties such as herbal essences and hypoallergenic proteins that help with breathing. But the cloud if dust that it creates, either by pouring it into the box, or the cat pushing it around when they’re in there, is not good for the cat’s respiratory health
