    Sneezing, itching, hard to breathe

    By Britnee on Jun 16, 2020

    not even an hour after dumping this into the box, me and my two cats were sneezing, itching and hard eye irritation. I didnt think anything had to do with the litter but then I read a review and someone else had the same issue! So soon as I got rid of it, we all stopped sneezing, my nose stopped running not even an hour after dumping this into the box, me and my two cats were sneezing, itching and hard eye irritation.

So soon as I got rid of it, we all stopped sneezing, my nose stopped running, my eyes stopped watering and my throat stopped itching. That isnt that only issue.... the crystals are like little shards of glass. I have never had litter hard me or cut though my trash bag. It was like one bag experience with this litter after another.. They should just take this off the market and save everyone from a really bad experience for you and your pet. This is prank litter … more

    okay for small litter boxes

    By on

    this litter is fine in a small litter box, but for a large one, like i have, you'd need at LEAST two bags, because it absorbs the urine, at first, but if you have a large litter box, it is too spread out to be able to absorb more than a day's worth of litter !!!!! it is cheap & easy to use, so that won't be a problem for me .... but just be aware of the problem !!!!

    Too much dust

    By on

    I love this brand litter, last longer & no smell however I found that it had too much dust. My cats like to dig & that is not good to breath. I stayed with the same brand but went with the lg. crystals which I found have less dust but you will need a mat to catch the pearls, they are hard to step on! If ur cat has sensitive paws I would stick with this 1.

    Odor Control Great BUT *Horrible* Dust/Tracking

    By on

    We got this litter so that we could see the color of our cat's pee. He had a urinary blockage (thankfully okay now) and we needed to monitor the blood in his urine. He uses it fine, but it is literally tracked through our entire apartment. Also, pouring out the bag and day to day sifting causes this huge plume of dust. I actually put an air purifier in the litter box room purely because of this litter, and the pre-filter is covered in dust overnight. I cough when scooping the box. I'm trying out a different brand to see if the dust is better (Dr. Elsey's respiratory relief). All in all-it *is* good for odor control and easy, lightweight scooping (you can kind of scoop light pee clumps out We got this litter so that we could see the color of our cat's pee.

    Does the Job but is Too Dusty

    By on

    I boughtthe Ultra Pearls Micro Crystal Cat Litter to use with the ScoopFree Automatic Litter Box because the microcrystals seemed to be softer to my cat's paws and was indeed better at absorbing urine than larger crystals (although the smell still got pretty bad at the end of 2 weeks). Unfortunately it is very dusty and after using it for nearly a year I think it has caused my cat asthma. In combination with winter's dry indoor air quality and the litter dust, my cat has been having coughing fits in the middle of the night.

    Not as good as some others

    By on

    I wanted to try this as a change from Fresh Step Blue Crystals. I had a few problems. 1-it doesn't fill up a standard pan to as thick of a layer. 2-it doesn't kill the smell as well or as fast as Fresh Step did I'm going to be switching back. This gets the job done, but I'm not wow'd by it. I'm going to be switching back.

    great but not for me

    By on

    this litter does amazing on trapping in the smells! i do not smell anything at all even after they poop! but my only reason i wont buy this again is cause it tracks so bad! i swept 3 times yesterday and i still would step on a little crystal. (i do have a litter mat in front of there litter box) but it still gets all over my house!(my whole house has hardwood floors) it works amazing but i'm tired of sweeping so much and still stepping on little crystals.

    Mixed Review

    By on

    Light weight, no odor, absorbs urine nicely. Biggest downside: very dusty. I had never used this brand before so I didn't know what to expect. When I poured it the first time it was like a powder bomb. Very disappointed.

    Not the best for a Multi-cat household

    By on

    Pros: I liked the litter because it doesn't have a smell, is very light weight and seems to be tracked less around the house than clay litters. Cons: I have a 5 cat household and even with 6 boxes and being scooped every day it just didn't seem to hold up- had to be changed out very frequently. Does nothing for odor control and is very very dusty.

    Poor little

    By on

    I love crystal kitty litter just not a huge fan of the micro. Makes just as big of a mess as clay litter and the urine balls actually bake themselves to the kitty pan and acts like concrete when cleaning. I have to soak my pans to get it removed. I learned my leason to not use the Micro again.

    Was alright

    By on

    This litter was alright but not something I will buy again. It was great at controlling odors for a few days, but really stuck to the bottom of the pan I made it hard for cleaning
