Light on your wallet, but tough on odors to keep your home as fresh as possible.
Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling used cat litter, as cat feces may contain Toxoplasma gondii—a parasite that can cause toxoplasmosis. Pregnant or nursing women, as well as children and anyone with a weakened immune system, should avoid handling used cat litter. Always handle litter in a ventilated area to avoid inhalation. Keep contents and packaging out of reach of children and pets. Seek medical help in case of accidental ingestion.
Use a moisture-proof litter box. There should be enough room for your cat to comfortably turn around in.
Fill the litter box to a depth of 2 to 3 inches, with plenty of pellets for pawing and covering. Remember that Yesterday's News paper cat litter is different than clay cat litter. Having the litter too deep will make it more difficult to find and remove the soiled litter.
Liquid waste is absorbed from the bottom of the pan. It takes a few minutes for all the liquid to absorb.
Remove the soiled pellets when they have absorbed the liquid and have fully expanded in size.
Scoop solid waste from the top of the litter box daily.
Replace the litter weekly.
Only dispose of used cat litter in trash. Do not flush, bury or dispose of it outdoors, in gutters or storm drains to avoid environmental contamination.
Not for internal use. Not meant for use as compost or as a traction aid.
Store in a cool, dry place. Product filled by weight; some settling may occur.
Some cats switch from one litter type to another easily. Others require a transition. When possible, give your cat the opportunity adjust to Yesterday's News® prior to surgery.
Week One: Mix 1/3 Yesterday's News® with your current litter
Week Two: Mix 1/2 Yesterday's News® with 1/2 current litter
Week Three: 100% Yesterday's News®

About Yesterday's News
In 1987, Purina's Yesterday's News cat litter was created to provide cat owners with a unique litter alternative. Today, their litter has become U.S. veterinarian's #1 choice among eco-friendly cat litters. This brand is unique because they take materials that could potentially end up in a waste stream and transform them into cat litter that is healthy for your cat, your home and the environment.
Yeah, I've done it all. Clay, crystals, pine... Always a smell, always a big freaking mess, and always so much work. Not anymore. There are lottery only a few pellets on the ground at the base of my litter boxes and, as long as I change it out once a week, there is NEVER a smell. Not to mention the recycling thing is pretty awesome.
But there's a trick to using this litter. It doesn't scoop well because it wasn't really meant to be scooped like others. We have 2 large litter boxes for 2 regular sized cats. Every Monday, I dump the entire litter box contents out, give them a quick wipe down with Nature's Miracle, and refill them. Takes me like 10 minutes tops.

No scooping (except for the really gnarly poops now and then), just a completely fresh start every Monday. We own a decent amount of land, so I just dump our back by the woods in a non-food compost pile.
I use an 85 oz ice scoop and use two scoops per litter box (totalling 170 oz per cat box), and I swear on everything dear to me that there is NEVER an issue with smells or health issues with my cats, provided I stick to my weekly schedule. This stuff may be pricey, but if you're like me and can't handle gross home smells, it's absolutely worth every penny.
Sooo... 10 minutes once a week, cats are happy with it, no litter box smells, no dust, and non-food compostable. This is a home run for our home.… more
Careful with this one
on Oct 18, 2020
I love the concept of using recycled paper to form the pellets, however because it's non-clumping, and dark you really have to pay attention when you scoop the wet spots. It begins to break down after being wet and makes a dusty substance at the bottom of the pan. I tend to lightly brush away the top/clean layer until I see the dark soggy litter and then scoop that out. It's a learning curve! I feel like I have to go through a lot more litter than I did with other products, but it's cheap enough that I don't mind. I wish they came out with a finer grain-like version for kitties with super sensitive paws.
Good for the environment, bad for the cat
on Oct 27, 2020
This liter was recommended by a friend who thought it environmentally better as well as for the cat, as the product does not contain any dust (as clay does). Even though I incrementally mixed it with my cat's usual liter, it didn't work. It got all over, she ate the pellets and then threw up. We kept with it for two weeks but the liter doesn't really absorb odor and it is hard to scoop up without throwing away a lot of the product. Ultimately gave up on this liter.

Been using this item mixed with Feline Pine, and it is great! No dust or tracking litter outside the box.
Only issue was that when I received my order and opened the box, the Yesterday's News bag had a good-size hole in it and some of the contents had emptied out into the shipping box. First time that's happened with my Chewy orders.
it's good for non clumping litter
on Sep 13, 2020
I only recommend this if you must get non clumping, my kitten only used this for a week or so til he found my older cats litter box and decided that's the only one he wanted to use so this bag will be donated to a shelter. My kitty doesn't eat the clumping litter thank god but he used to eat and play with this one for some reason. It just doesn't really block smells so if you have a kitten in your bedroom, you might be woken up the smell of poop in the middle of the night if that's when kitty decides to go...it is also very loud when they dig. Its hard to clean as well. Overall I would rate this as alright for what it is
Great for Puppy Litter Pan!
on Sep 27, 2020
My awesome breeder litter trains pups before they're eight weeks old. It's awesome in general, but especially if you travel and/or stay in hotels. This particular litter is so NOT messy, really absorbs and best-around litter there is. I highly recommend this. Wish I had known about this when I had cats ... there is NO tracking this litter from the pan throughout the house.
Pellets are an inch long
on Oct 22, 2020
My 5 month old kitten played with it and did not use it. She liked chewing on the inch long, hard compressed paper pellets. Other than that, cool concept for a natural litter, maybe it would work better for larger cats? My kitten is small, 5lbs.
Yesterday’s news cat litter
on Sep 21, 2020
I’ve just started using this product, having used regular clay litter previously. It does not have the horrible used kitty litter smell. I like that it is a recycled product. I like that it is biodegradable. I like that it has lasted so much longer than the regular kitty litter. My cat has had no problem making the switch.

I love this Cat litter and it’s not too expensive compared to other brands that are paper.
I have 1 month old kittens who are learning to use the litter box and a mom cat who makes such a mess that this litter has been a life saver at reducing the amount of tracking and mess!
The only downside so that the pellets get saturated so fast so the litter box should be changed very often or it looks yucky and smells a little funky but that’s okay,
With 6 cats it’s bound to smell at one point or another!
Thank you Chewy.com and Friskies!
Best for maybe 1 Cat
on Sep 18, 2020
If you have the space for multiple litter boxes for each cat this product would work fine. everyone always talks about how this absorbs urine and for that part the product works great for poop not as much. to scoop out poops you are going to waste clean pellets and with less clumping allowed my cats were stepping in each others poop.
