My cats are not particular about their litter but they wouldn't touch that stuff. They hated it and I ended up throwing it all out. It sure smells nice but it is my understanding cats aren't particularly fond of citrus so in actuality, a citris based litter rather doesn't make sense.

I wouldn't DARE try another litter. I finally found one that all 8 cats like, Tidy Cats Scoopable Multi-cat with immediate odor control.

To get all 8 of these finniky feline prima-donnas to agree on something is like winning a lottery. So, I'm not going to rock the boat

i don't think they have an online version. catwatch does (cornell) but i don't think catnip does. i subscribe to it, and that's where i read it.

... according to their website it helps with the ammonia urine smell because of the citrus... and acid neutralises a base (umm... i'm no chemist, but the last time I mixed an acid and a base (brake fluid and chlorine) they definately didn't neutralise each other... quite the opposite really...

What do you mean it's almost gone? It doesn't disintegrate.....


I worked PT at PetSmart for awhile and the manufacturer had a promo for a free bag - it was an instant rebate coupon for the full price of the product. I recommended people try it since it was free and all. I got one for myself as well.

So I get it home and open the bag and I was like, "you've got to be kidding me!!" It was full of leaves and twigs, BIG twigs, and orange rind and seeds and sawdust and God knows WHAT else!! It was like someone had swept up the floor at a citrus factory - which I am thinking is probably where they get it all from for cheap so they can make a huge profit. And it stunk too, not the citrus scent I was expecting. So I took it back to work and showed everyone and they were like ewwwww!

Then I found out that cats don't even LIKE citrus! So I am not sure why it is even a product. I mean obviously companies do research and trials and testings before an idea is even put into the production phase, but I am just not sure where or who their market is.
