This litter is okay. It does the basic job I need it to do. I purchased it because I wanted a natural litter for my cat, and I am happy with the naturalness of it. It also has a nice natural smell, not perfumy or chemically. However, in the photo it looked like it was a finer material, but it's like little pea-sized particles. It doesn't seem to clump well. So, while the quality of this litter itself is very good, I am disappointed that it is not what I was expecting, based on the photos and description.
I'm conflicted about this litter...on the one hand, it's awesome. Truly almost no dust and tracking. It solved both of those headaches for me immediately. Both cats took to it easily and great odor control. On the other hand, I have no clue how to properly use it. On the bag it says to cover bottom of litter box with about 1"-1.5" and scoop out used litter daily (obviously). The issue I have is when liquids hit the pellets, it turns to saw dust - so there's nothing to scoop except for feces. Once it's saw dust, does it stay in there or dumped? Admittedly, the first time, I put in about 2"-3". So cleaning the box felt like a gold mining expedition after a week. Eventually I just dumped it all by about 10 days in because it was dusty, and started over. It's certainly not bad, maybe I just need to give it more time - but after two weeks, I blew through a 14 pound bag and it's out of stock. I like the size of the granules...if it clumped urine - which I understand that wood litters won't - it would be ideal.
I've been looking for a natural litter since Tidy Cats doesn't make their cedar-based littler anymore, so I decided to give this litter a try. Pros: - natural - very low dust (almost dust-free) - low tracking Cons: - can't really smell the pine (at least I couldn't) - the pieces are large, so there's no way to shake out the excess when scooping litter, so the whole scoop gets thrown away, which is getting to be wasteful If you have one cat, this litter may be a good fit since each entire scoop, whether it's all soiled litter or not, has to be tossed, but I have multiple cats so at this rate, I'm refilling the litter boxes every day.
I was on the fence about buying cobble or pellets. I'm loving the cobble. Cat is adjusting well. So easy to clean. No urine odor at all. No dust. Does track but not a big deal. Love that it's lightweight.
I was so happy to see this on chewy. I had used pine cobble before, and the 1st experience was amazing unfortunately that brand was discontinued. I found another brand and it was just ok. I decided to give Dr Pol a test drive. I am so disappointed I only got one bag. The stuff is pawsome! If you are a pine pellet fan but don't like the sifting and your fur baby really is not all that found of whole size pellets, then this stuff is the best for making the cat happy as well as the human. The texture is like crushed pine pellets but not so fine that there is a lot of tracking. The reasons I love this is the texture, dust free, low tracking, pawsome odor control, non-clumping formula, no loud smell, does not stick to the box and cleanup is a breeze. The pine cobble is perfect in size compared to other wood litters. This litter does not clump but forms nice pee cake puffs when your cat Wee's. This makes it very easy to remove without saw dust falling through the grates of my litter scoop. One inch of pine cobble is all I need for one cat, this litter swells so no need to put in 2 to 3 inches like clay litters. If you have two cats 1 1/2 inches should be plenty. My cat does not cover but this litter has good odor control, of course he is on an all-raw diet so that helps too. Pine Cobble Tip: if you have a cat who is a digger and likes to kick, some of the saw dust may get mixed with the whole cobble. Not to worry, all you have to do is remove the cat tootsie rolls and shake the box so that broken down litter sinks to bottom. After 14 days change whole box and replace with fresh pine cobble as box will be mostly saw dust. Simple, fast and easy clean up. This is the best litter. I love wood litter as I think it is the best at odor control and I find it the easiest to keep the box clean. Pine cobble is a must have if you want low tracking, Pawsome odor control, easy clean up and great for sensitive paws.
I purchased the cobble and combined it with SwheatScoop for my cat Sweetie to get used to it. She has no problem and I like the fresh woodsy smell when I walk by litter box. Fabulous price and not pellets so absorbs better. Will continue to buy.
Although it has ok odor control, the wet pine mushes up and makes it difficult to scoop out. The main problem was that my cat could not breathe well around this and was coughing a lot so it was a waste of $ for me.
I noticed my cat started to pee on the carpet and realized that he wouldn't use this litter. When I tried to bring him into the litter box, he jumped off right away.
Ibusedbevery litter known to man to eliminate odor and be dust free but this one really helps odor. My house smells like pine instead of cat doodie/urine.
These are lightweight and filled my large cat litter box. It also kept the odor down; it is easy to clean, and did have some tracking.
