This was the absolute best litter. I used it for over 20 years. Now that ive been forced to use other paper litters, it only makes me miss it more! It The pellets had a high polish on them, and that seems to be what made this work better than other paper pellet litters. I have 1 very old bag, when the packaging was green w/green leaves. I'm saving it just in case.
literally so sad this has been discontinued. my kitties have only ever used this litter and i'm not sure what to switch to. really bad idea to discontinue this imo!
I probably should have read the instructions thoroughly before purchasing, but it’s not meant for a sifting box. It takes a longgg time for the pellets to absorb urine, so the urine dripped to the bottom pan and sat there. I tried to adjust my setup by putting a layer of pellets on the pan but i still had a lot of odor problems. Also separating soiled pellets out of the litter box with a scoop seems difficult. I’ve switched back to Feline Pine and life is much better
I have a hospice kitty with renal lymphoma who is on daily subcutaneous fluid treatments. He drinks and urinates a LOT. Using our go-to clumping clay litter wasn’t working for him - he would flood the box with urine, meaning litter got caked on his paws (and everywhere his paws went afterward), stuck to the side of the box, and we were going through litter so quickly. I had experience using Yesterdays News litter for diabetic cats in the past, and it has been a life saver! It absorbs so much more urine than clay litter, doesn’t smell, and if it is tracked at all, I only have to pick up a few stray pellets vs. a trail of sand and dust. I just scoop out poo and any heavily saturated areas, then stir the remainder of the used bits in with the rest of the box. Once there are more used pellets than intact ones, I empty the box and start over. My old boy doesn’t mind using it, either!
I have been using this litter the entire time I've had cats. I tried other pellets when I had foster kittens but nothing controls odor as well as this! It doesn't track too much. Most importantly this is what my cats prefer. Please bring this line of litter back, the new stuff is not good.
From the day I adopted my AKC registered Pug(Tinzley ~Jane) I began to Litter train her using Yesterday’s News. Yes, I said “PUG” ~ I litter trained my dog.. lol Tinzley is now 20 month old & although she prefers to go outside ~ some days I just cannot physically do all the steps & Yesterday’s News comes to the rescue. We have tried other brands but YN is the best!! No nasty odor, easy clean up, simple to snatch up a poo deposit & this litter does NOT stain or cause an odor to my dogs feet(massive bonus) hope this helps someone ~
I’m sick of all the dust from so many types of clumping cat litter and had to give this a try. It took awhile for the cats to get used to the smell and feel of this litter, but they’ve gotten used to it now. I love the fact that it is much less dusty and tracking is, minimal. Cleaning the boxes is more of a chore, but I can tolerate that if I don’t have to find dust everywhere. It’s absorbent, but there isn’t any clumping and they don’t cover their poops. I clean the boxes several times a day and change the litter out completely in about 4 or 5 days for the 3 cats. The problem now is that this litter is being discontinued by Purina, so I’ll be trying to find a similar product at a reasonable price.
