*** Please note this product can be bought from hardware stores cheaper than us. We are offering it becuase we want a more economical offering for our customers but this product takes up a lot of warehouse space (we buy 60 bags at a time) and time effort is spent lugging it around so we have charge accordingly. I hope you can appreciate that. ***
Not sure what a previous review is talking about, sounds like they're not using it as cat litter. I have no idea if these pellets are any good for their usual intended use, but for cat litter they're fantastic. The clay litter I had been using was discontinued and my cat is so picky she wouldn't use any of the other clay litter we tried. But she took to the pellets immediately, which is exactly what I'd heard from others, that even the pickiest cats seem to go for this right away without any problem. It's also been much better for us, cleaning the litter isn't nearly so bad when it separates itself nicely and the natural wood scent covers the smell so well it doesn't seem like a gross job anymore. Even though the price is quite a bit more than at a hardware store, it's a real pain lugging the bags home without a car, and a lot of stores don't seem to carry the pellets so you might have to go so far out of your way it isn't even worthwhile if you do drive, really. And either way this is so much less expensive than other litter that it's still less than half what I'd been spending before. One of these bags lasts us about a month with two cats.
I would give 0 stars if it would be possible. Last year the "quality" got worse and worse. The pellets contain a lot of sand. After 12 hours half the fire pot is filled with what I would call a solid rock. It blocks half of the holes in the firepot of my pellet stove, which overheats the components of my stove. I need to shut it down and let it cool of twice the day, 3 times would be better. Shutting it down so often is not good for the components of the stove, takes time and of course in the meantime the temperature in the house drops again. These are by far the worst pellets I have ever bought. I bought some from another brand and of course I can run the stove for a day or 2 and have no blocked holes in the firepot and almost no residue in the stove to clean up. I feel that there is no excuse to sell such a horrible product. I was told they had some troubles with the production last year. However that is no excuse for still selling these pellets. They should have never ever sold these pellets. Such a product needs to be disposed at the transfer station but not sold in stores.
I have tried lots of brands and types of litter for my cats. This one is the only one that holds the smell AND my cats don't make a lot of mess after using it. It's easier to clean and my cats enjoyed it. Good price, too.
My cats are used to non-clumping litter from when they were babies, so we've just continued getting the giant bags. It really is the best value, especially when you don't have to carry it home yourself. (Kudos to the delivery people!!)
