Description

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Ultra Clumping Cat Litter is a unique formulation that combines the heavy non-tracking granules of Precious Cat Classic with a medium grain clay. The result is an excellent clumping litter that prevents moisture from reaching the bottom of the tray, while providing a clump that will not break down. Ultra is perfect for multi-cat families and those cat owners with sifting or mechanical litter boxes. Like Classic, it has superior odor control.

Key Benefits

  • 99.9% dust free, hypo-allergenic natural litter
  • Contains no plant proteins
  • Hard clumping, medium grain clay
  • Multi-cat formula, superior odor control
  • Ideal for sifting/mechanical litter boxes

Additional Details

Always wash your hands thoroughly after waste removal. A parasite sometimes found in cat feces can cause toxoplasmosis. Please do not flush cat litter in toilets or dispose of it outdoors in gutters or storm drains.

Special Note

Some products are changing from bags to boxes. You may receive either packaging until the transition is complete, but rest assured that you are receiving the same great litter!

    We have 5 extra large litter pans for our 10+ kitties. Wish the litter wasn't quite so heavy (we are getting older) but we love our cats and love Dr. Elsey's litter.

  • A consistently effective cat litter that kitty likes

    By on

    First, foremost, and most important, my four house cats all like it and use it without fail (and have for several years now since I switched over to this brand). Everything else is secondary. It clumps tightly and scoops out cleanly. I recommend you keep at least 2" of litter (or more) in the pan to help prevent a kitty from digging a hole where urine might pool and tend to stick to the bottom of the pan . It's about as dust free as I've encountered in similar products. Seems to have a pretty effective natural odor control on its own but I usually also preemptively spritz a few sprays of odorless enzymatic urine cleaner over the top after every scoop out to guarantee no telltale cat box First, foremost, and most important, my four house cats all like it and use it without fail (and have for several years now since I switched over to this brand).

  • Great litter and a suggestion to help with the sticking to the bottom of the pan

    By on

    I saw this in a review somewhere and I now do it. I have a cat that has to dig to China so ends up no litter where he is going. Someone said to spray bottom and sides of pan with a product like PAM but can get generic versions that are cheaper - let it dry and then put the litter in the pan. It really helps. Someone mentioned problems with allergies and I have lots of allergies and Asthma and I don't notice any problems. I get the 40 lb bags because better deal but at 73 they are very heavy - I roll them down my many cement basement steps and have never had a bag break and also have never received one shipped to me that was broken - perhaps it is the shipper somehow causing it????

The boxes have to be smashed down for our recycler to take them so I much prefer the bags. … more

  • Great Clumping Litter, Less Dusty Than Many Cat Litters, Unscented.

    By on

    Pros: Unscented (scented litters make my cats sneeze and cough), great clumping litter, good price when on sale, less dusty than many cat litters. Cons: Not 100% dust-free but less dusty than many cat litters, some tracking (a tracking mat is helpful), a bit awkward to carry the 40 pound bag (packing it in a box would be easier). For Odors: Plug-ins for pets are helpful or scented dryer sheets (put them in an enclosed trash can or wherever cat poop is deposited; this will help mask the smell). *I do NOT recommend sprinkling your litter boxes with Baking Soda or anything scented. Do NOT use room sprays. That will irritate your cat's eyes and respiratory system and get on his/her fur.

    The best thing about this litter is that it is nearly dust free. I actually found a different litter that I preferred but my 20 lb cat was in disagreement and began going outside of the box. He is crippled from being hit by a car and he only urinates once per day. This caused a problem with many other litters as his urine would not absorb quick enough, so it would pool behind him and get his hind end wet. I think this is why he didn’t like the other litter. This litter allows the urine to absorb quickly and it does run through all the way to the bottom. This makes cleaning a bigger chore as it will stick to the bottom even when I have a solid three to four inches deep.

  • Lots of benefits, a couple of improvements needed

    By on

    I found this litter on Chewy when searching for a low-dust litter and this lives up to that claim. I see virtually no dust. When the litter is deep the clumping is excellent. However, if the litter is shallow or you have a "digger," this clings to the bottom of the box like cement! I do also find that there are a lot of little dirty pieces that fall through my scoop, I haven't had this problem with other clumping litter and have a great metal scoop (I'll be looking for second scoop with smaller holes as a supliment.) As others have mentioned, what really has to be addressed are the bags breaking in shipping.

  • My cats love this

    By on

    I was looking for a cheaper litter and tried Dr. Elsey's based on the reviews. My cats have two litter boxes, so I cleaned one litter box, replaced the litter (World's Best, unscented) that I have used for years. Went downstairs to empty the trash and by the time I returned, cat number one had already used the box. Twenty minutes later cat number two used it. Then they ignored the clean litter box with the old, familiar litter. Point taken. A week later I replaced the litter in the second litter box. The clumps are really hard, and it seems less dusty than the old litter. Happy cats, happy cat mom. Plus it's cheaper, which makes me even more happy.

  • Reliably unscented

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have extreme reactions to artificial fragrance. I'm in online support groups for that and many people complain that they buy "unscented" litter and half the time it ends up being scented. The theory is that the factory switches between a scented batch and an "unscented" batch without cleaning the machines thoroughly and the first few bags of "unscented" get contaminated. I am happy to report that I have had no such issues with this product, after a couple years of steady use. I feel safe ordering Dr Elsey's. As for how it works, it's great. Not very dusty at all. Clumps well. The bags are nice and sturdy (I use them for the scoopings, with the top folded over & clipped, and they hold the smell I have extreme reactions to artificial fragrance.

  • This IS the BEST Litter ever!

    By on

    We love the 40# bags, and within a day or so of delivery, quickly transfer to 2 - 20# jugs we saved from using a competitor's litter years ago, (before discovering this brand). It's very quick using a 2 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup and big red plastic funnel I bought at our hardware. (We cut it little off the spout bottom so it would flow easily). My husband (or I, if I do it alone) also bump the plastic jug up & down a few times while filling, so it settles good in the jug. If you don't do this it seems that scooping and pouring can 'fluff' the litter up a bit in the transfer, and you might have a small amount left that won't quite fit the 2nd jug .

Great people at Chewy with a simple, easy website and the BEST customer service. Our 17 year old Dah-ly is happy, (she doesn't dig to China) so we have no problem with pee on the bottom of pan. She does tend to pee very close to one side wall sometimes, and I will try one reviewer's tip about spraying that area with PAM. I did wipe with white vinegar and once tried Febreze on it to discourage that spot being reused. Fortunately she doesn't 'go there' every single time! Thank you Dr. E. & wife and Chewy! I note that packaging may change to 20# boxes....I still prefer the tough plastic blue & white bags which protects from any moisture getting in the bag until we "do the transfer", OR if outer box gets wet in shipping. It seems like that could be an issue with cardboard litter boxes? B/t/w, this litter is made in USA in Colorado! … more

  • Dust free!

    By on

    I love this litter. It really is as close to dust free as you can get. With my old brand I would have a thin layer of litter dust on everything in the basement near the litter boxes. I would have to vacuum and dust constantly to keep the "litter" smell to a minimum. When it would get humid my whole basement smelled like a litter box. I was also concerned my cats were breathing this dust in..how unhealthy that must be!!! With Dr. Elsey's I don't have the dust issue! It clumps well and my cats didn't mind the change one bit. Highly recommend!
