It is fine grain and unscented. So you have to expect a little bit of it being pushed out of the pan with some cats. Mine doesn't do that but a little bit always gets out anyway. It's no big deal. Being A fine grain, some cats like it a lot better. There are cats with sensitive paws and anything with larger grains really bothers them. It's unscented so unless your cat covers up the poop, that will have an odor. If they cover up then there's no problem at all. I intentionally use the unscented. For us it's the least expensive of the crystal litters and because of the fine grain we like it the best. There is another litter pan in the house with normal clay litter that she won't use. What someone said about feline acne has absolutely nothing to do with any litter. Feline acne happens mostly to cats with a white chin but has nothing to do with their litter. There are excellent solutions out there so talk to your vet.
This litter used to be great, now it is so ridiculously dusty and smells like it too! I mix up my cats' crystal litter once a day and it's night and day with the most recent bag, the entire rooms stinks like litter dust. Never had this issue before. I'll be looking for a different brand of crystal litter now. Real shame
I should have read the reviews before purchasing:/ I’ve been on the lookout for a crystal litter. But this was was awful and I think completely turned me away from crystal litter altogether. It doesn’t contain the smell of urine even in the slightest bit. If anything it smelt like it amplified the smell and made it even worse! And unfortunately I’m not the only one that hated the smell….. I’ve had cats my entire life and I’ve always used clumping clay litter… the smells were never a problem… but this crystal litter is terrible.my 3 year old cat started avoiding the litter box …. He was peeing in other places in the house. wanted the litter to work so bad but turns out my cat hatted it and so did I . You get what you pay for!
I started with Pretty Litter some time in 2021. I have used 3 types of silica litter. Finishing up my use of silica litter with this type. At some point after we switched to Pretty Litter we noticed some black spots on my cats chin. Looking it up we saw it was cat acne and tried to treat it as best we could. Over the course of the last year and a half or so the chin acne got to the point of wounds on his chin, large scabs, big holes, etc. It has cost us hundreds to treat his chin and it's still not cleared up. He was always sneezy with it but I liked how clean the litter box always. The vet says it's most likely his sensitive skin and the acne got infected. So just keep in mind your kitties skin when you use the silica litter. We switched to a more natural based litter and it seems to be helping.
I've been using Fresh Step crystal cat litter and was looking to save a couple extra dollars for my two cats. I read the reviews and thought I'd just try it and see, but unfortunately, I can smell the cat pee strongly. These crystals are micro, which the bag says, but I didn't get it. I'll be going back to Fresh Step.
Seems the formula (miss all the blue crystals) for the micro and regular Frisco crystal cat litter has changed. It's tracking more, seems more dust and has to be changed more often. And more importantly, Annie has developed chin acne; it started after the formula change. I have used Frisco for at least 3 years. I may have to find another brand. So annoying, sometimes change is not good!
I was raised to ALWAYS question advertising claims, and fully expected this litter not to live up to the hype. Boy was I wrong! So pleasantly pleased. Scooping the poop once a day, the litter even pulls ,moister from that so it's practically dessicated.. and then a simple stir to the box to move around crystals that have absorbed urine. It's like I filled the box with fresh litter!! My cat had no issues in switching from our favorite walnut clumping litter to this either. LOVE IT.. and the less expense too.
This litter is almost as good as pretty litter. Trying to find something as good,but not so expensive, this has low dust but not dust free. Eleminats odor.
This litter is very fine and tracks out of the box. I would say it tracks less than clay litter, but more than the bigger crystal litters. It is also extremely dusty and stays dusty, so as you clean you are literally breathing in urine filled dust. My last complaint is the longevity of the containment of smell. The larger crystals hold the smell for twice as long (literally) than this litter, even when scooped and stirred every day. On the positive side, this litter absorbs urine a lot better and doesn’t require stirring as often as the bigger crystals. I also still prefer this litter over clay, as the tracking doesn’t leave the room the litter box is in. It serves its purpose fine and my two cats didn’t hesitate to use the litter box when I switched to this, but I personally prefer the larger crystals.
I have been using this for about 4 years. I used to love it but with the last year the litter is inconsistent. I get 7 bags every month. There may be 1 or 2 bags that are a larger grain which is what it always was. Now, there majority of my bags are very fine and dusty. I hate it. Looking to get something else or cancel my account.
