My cats love it! It took them a little to get used to it, but once they did, it was the only litter they used. You do NEED a pellet litter system for this, you need to have a kind of screen so that the sawdust from when the pee disintegrates the pellets can fall through and then all you need to do is scoop the poop and stir the litter. (Sadly, the ones that are made for pellet are a bit pricy but they’re pretty easy to DIY. Just make sure that there’s a large enough gap in between the 2 sections so that there’s room for the sawdust to fall into!) It hardly has any odor once you scoop the poop out! I can’t say if this is better than the pine pellets since I’ve never used them, but I do think that it’s an easier transition for your cats and perhaps even more comfortable because these pellets are a lot skinnier than pine pellets so they don’t hurt the cat’s paws when stepping on it.
The cats and I like they walnut litter and I was glad to see it’s in pellet form. So not to much tracking but it disintegrates and breaks down more like pine, so there’s a lot of residue left over in a little box which I don’t like. I prefer paper litter, much easier to clean. But the walnut is better on your nose and I think the environment..
I have a long-haired tuxedo and heard that pellet litter was best for this kind of cat, due to the litter not sticking to the hair. So, after trying 2 other brands of pellets, Naturally Fresh is my favorite! Why? It’s extremely soft on the paws, smells so good, and clumps beautifully! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the color of the litter is brown/black and you can’t see the clumps or the poo! Difficult to scoop when you can’t see them, so you kinda just go fishing! Other than that, it’s great and my cat went to it immediately, with no break-in time!
What I found was that while this is a nice product, I could not tell the soiled from the still useable because of the dark brown color. The cat litter box I used it for is in an outside barn and shaded, so I ended up emptying the entire box and not just the soiled sections. I also had to buy a different kind of scoop to allow the pellets to pass through. I need to return to the clumping cat litter, but this has its good points for those for whom it would be more practical.
A lot of the reviews are upset that the pellets break down when wet, and they have no way to get them out. This stuff works great with the breeze system , or any diy double layered litterboxes. The broken down pieces need to be sifted through and go through the bottom into a second container. I have had no issues with the pee smell because it goes into the little tray under, and we clean it daily. It does slightly clog in the breeze system, but so does the breeze pellets. Love that this is safer for the animals & people. Does not take much more work than a conventional litterbox.
I used this litter with the breeze litter box system for an entire year. I just have one cat, so this worked great for me. Not exactly dust free, but it certainly doesn’t get everywhere like traditional clay litters. I don’t know if I got a bad bag, or if they changed the formula recently, but this litter is going from lasting sometimes a month and a half to crumbling (literally) within two weeks. My cat is a digger; she definitely flings the litter around more than average cats, but my last few bags lasted much longer than this. It’s starting to really pile up in the drawer with the absorbing pad. Not to mention, the smell control is not the same at all. I do a deep clean of the litter box every so often, not to mention switching out the litter every month, but this litter starts to get stale now in less than two weeks. Again, I have one small cat. That’s definitely not supposed to happen. I used to recommend this litter to all my cat parent friends, but now I’m telling them to stay away. This new formulation, this batch, whatever it is, is terrible now. Pay more for the pellets that last way longer.
First off: this smells DIVINE! I've been using this litter for a few weeks now and it's lovely. My cat transitioned to it well off of pine pellets (this seemed more substantial, which made me try it) though he did initially try to eat it before I put it in the litter box. So far the natural smell has completely masked the negative odors. I also get nonclumping because I only fill the letterbox a 1/4 of the way and completely change it every weekend instead of scooping it. Needless to say, this has earned a spot on the autoship for us.
This might work for a single cat household that can't use pine because of an allergy or something. However, for a four cat household in the heat of Arizona right now (will be worse later) this stuff does not work. The entire house smells so bad and the pellets arent even dissolved yet. I sift daily and the ammonia smell is so strong that I'm just tossing all the rest of the pellets and I'll need to stick to pine from now on. Definitely not worth the money for a larger cat household. I switched litters because spouse is allergic to pine but we'll just have to stock up on allergy meds instead.
My long-haired cat refused to use litter boxes, which was very annoying. He was a rescue cat that had all shots. I guess that was why they gave him up. I was close to it as well. Being an outside cat was not an option. i noticed he was urinating on the wood that we brought in for fireplace. I chose this as my alternative and am happy to report that he always uses it. A great accomplishment for both of us.
It didn't help with odor and my furkids evidently do not like the feel on their feet. thought it was food and played with the pellets.
