    Very fine, accepted by my cat and clumps well. It is easy to remove the damp clumps. No smell. Best I’ve tried. Using a suitable mat helps stops the litter spreading too far.

    We recently adopted an adult cat whose litterbox habits have resulted in going through 60 lbs. of litterbox sand in just the four weeks that we’ve had her. We didn’t realize how easy our previous cats (R.I.P.) made litterbox maintenance. For them, we used a lightweight, hard-clumping litter, and they would do their business tidily atop the litter, cover it up and be done, making it easy to just skim the clumps off the surface, leaving dry litterbox sand beneath. So we only needed to wash the box and completely replace the litter about once a month with our former cats. But our new cat’s litterbox habits may break the plastic scooper, as well as our pet-supply budget. Time to buy a sturdier, metal scooper!

    When she urinates, our new cat likes to scrape away all the litter (even though we fill the box so the litter is quite deep). Then she wees directly onto the bottom of the box, pretty much negating the main function of clumping litter. She then pushes the cat sand OVER the pool of wee, creating a cement-like mess that lurks hidden underneath and practically bonds with the base of the litter box. The box gets sifted several times a day, but after 3-4 days, the entire box needs to be completely emptied, washed and refilled with another massive amount of litterbox sand. Which is where this new litter comes in.

    Because our cat creates such a muddy mess at the bottom of the box, the much finer granules of the lightweight litter we were using before was getting stuck between her toes, depositing it all over the house, and in the mornings, we’d wake up to our bed covered in clumps of dirty, damp sand. So, out with the finer-grained, lightweight sand, and on to something different. We noticed that the Dr. Elsey’s litter seemed a bit grainier, though still offering clumping properties, and thought we’d give it a try. It tracks a lot less, and what little is tracked is easier to see and sweep up due to the larger size of the granules. And so far, those larger granules haven’t been sticking to our cat’s feet. But this litter is HEAVY! Our cat doesn’t have any issues pushing the sand around (a good feline fitness workout!), but because of her odd litterbox habits, it still gets stuck to the bottom of the litterbox, and takes a lot of effort to scrape off. So it appears that we’ll just be spending a lot of time and money on litterbox maintenance, whatever we try. And the wet clumps are super heavy, so taking out the garbage is a weight-bearing exercise. (TIP: we replaced our Litter Genie with the largest size of the OXO compost pail, which has a much larger opening, is so easy to fill and empty, and we can use any sturdy plastic bags to line it — no need to buy those Litter Genie refills. So it quickly pays for itself. And the OXO compost bin also keeps any unpleasant smells from escaping before emptying.)

    So, to sum up the litterbox saga (seems I’m not alone, as others appear to have epic issues when it comes to dealing with the litterbox situation):
    • If your cat doesn’t have a problem pushing around a heavier type litter, we found Dr. Elsey’s to be great at clumping if you go really deep when filling the box. But one downside to its hard clumping is that if you have a cat who likes to dig close to the bottom when urinating, the hard clumps adhere like cement to the bottom of the litter box, making it no job for a plastic scooper. So a heavy-duty metal scoop is a must.
    • Tracking is minimal and the larger granules make it easier to see and sweep up any tracked bits.
    • So far, the larger granules have eliminated the issue with sand getting stuck between our cat’s toes, so any tracking stays within a close distance to the litterbox, and doesn’t end up on furniture and beds.
    • Does well at controlling odor provided box is sifted at least once a day.

    We’ll continue buying the Dr. Elsey’s litter, and though we expect that every bag will be a bit different, we’re hopeful that it will continue to solve some of the problems we had with the finer-grained, lightweight types of litter. There’s likely not a litter on the market that can quickly absorb urine deposited directly on the bottom of the box and not create heavy sludge or really hard clumps that adhere like cement, so for now, this is as close as we’re likely to get to the Holy Grail of litterbox sand.
    12/20/23 UPDATE: I’ve purchased two 18-lb. bags from Amazon in the past 5 weeks, at a little over $11 per bag. Now the price has increased to over $16. I know we’re in inflationary times, but I can’t help but question the need for this particular increase, other than sheer avarice. Not suggesting the increase is Amazon’s decision — it may well be their supplier, but still… My local pet supply store is still selling it for just over $8 for the 18-lb. bag. While I appreciated the convenience of having it delivered to my door, I’m going to have to stop being lazy and just make the short drive to my nearby pet store, because the Amazon increase to $16+ just breached my annoyance threshold, as well as my budget.

    I’ve tried every type of litter except grass and pretty litter. Each one has its strengths, but the most important for me are how well it masks odor and how easy it is to clean.

    Dr Elsey’s has done eeeeverything right. The clumping is insanely good, but it’s tough if you have too little in the litter box because it’ll stick to the bottom and you’ll have to scrape it. I never smell ANYTHING. Sometimes I forget to clean the box after a day, but I have yet to smell any odors even then. I have one box right next to my toilet (small apt and have to keep my new cat separate from the others), and sometimes I forget it’s even there until my cat decides to use it at the same time I go. After he poops and covers it up, the odor dissipates quickly within 5 minutes or so. Also, because it handles odor and clumping so well, it lasts a LONG time.

    The only drawback is it is pretty dusty, but I have yet to come across any clay litter without dust issues. It’s okay with me since my cats aren’t asthmatic.

    Other litters I’ve tried:

    Corn litter, super lightweight and the second best odor masking, but one of my cats is allergic to it (caused so much itching he had bald spots around his crotch area). I would have stuck with this otherwise. The breeze system was great, but too expensive and the poop odor was too much. It also sucked to clean in small places. Paper litter is cheap, but terrible overall for cleaning, odors, etc. Pine pellets, same as paper but the sawdust aspect was not it.

    Clay litter is generally the best. I’ve tried almost every brand and the litter always ended up with this terrible odor after a couple weeks (A&H litter smells terrible after a couple days, regardless of the variety.

    Dr Elsey’s wins hands down. I wish it was more environmentally friendly.

    Cat litter.

    It’s dusty. Dusty and gray. Also, granular. Decidedly less so upon being used, it forms a foul smelling hillock that waits for the low-man-on-the-totem-pole of the household to reluctantly scoop it. It smells of…cat litter? What else does cat litter smell like? I dunno. It’s the medium in which we expect our pet cats to expel their waste.

    That’s it.

    That’s about as much brain real estate each of us has devoted to the rousing topic of “Cat litter” and deservedly so. Cat litter is one of those things that is so inconsequential in our lives, so banal of a product, that any amount of conversational effort devoted to it is too much. That is, when it works.

    And yet…here I am reviewing it on Amazon.

    In addition to having a decent (boring?) enough of a life that I can devote time to reviewing cat litter on Amazon, I have two cats. One is a white flame-point ragdoll cat that is the reincarnation of Steve McQueen that’ll befriend a Rottweiler within minutes of meeting (Tucker) and the other is a painfully shy siamese that closely resembles a raccoon that swallowed a medicine ball – we call her “the basement troll” for her penchant for cool, dark spaces and cardboard boxes. Formally, however, she is known as “Bailey”.

    While Bailey is extremely sweet, she’s very nervous and scares extremely easily. She hides in the basement whenever anyone comes to the house and hates being carried. While Tucker is as cool as Billy Dee Williams and makes the Dos Equis guy look like Don Knotts, Bailey is more sensitive than an open cavity. As a result, she’s suffered from chronic bladder infections for years.

    While both of these cats are polar opposites of each other, both had one thing in common – they both had a penchant for leaving tootsie rolls just outside of their litterbox. In addition, because Bailey suffered from routine bladder infections, we were starting to see rust-colored spots in not-so-inconspicous places around the house (essentially every carpeted corner in the house). While I certainly don’t condone the tendency for families to throw their hands up in the air in exasperation and send their pet cat straight to the kennel when this happens, I can understand how it happens.

    If only there was some sort of miracle product that keeps such tragedies from happening…

    Yes, Precious Cat Ultra Premium Clumping Cat Litter is that product. How incredible is this stuff you ask? I’ll tell you: it’s so damned good that here I am, semi-supine in my cozy bed on the last Tuesday before Christmas and instead of figuring out how I’m going to get every last gift that I’m obligated to buy, I’m reviewing this cat litter. That’s how f—ing great this stuff is. It’s simply sublime – transcendent even. In a world where every product is so over-hyped, brightly packaged, and intrusively advertised on every screen in your house and yet is woefully and ultimately ineffectual, here’s a product that’s the equivalent of a circa 1974 George Foreman right cross packaged in a manila envelope.

    Before I continue, I would just like to say that this isn’t one of those inane, dipsh-t “ironic” reviews that self-entertained hipsters write in the hopes that they get recognized by Buzzfeed – I’m as sincere as I can be – this is the Alpha and Omega of cat litter.

    With that out of the way, the first thing that comes to mind about this litter is that it saved our carpets, piles of dirty laundry and sanity from Bailey’s sketchy bladder. Cynical as I am, I was fully expecting the worst for Bailey – her bladder infections were a more consistent recidivist than Tyron Biggums and there was no end in sight. Like seemingly all pet ailments, I was fully expecting Bailey’s treatment to be outrageously expensive.

    Thankfully, we’re blessed with a vet that had long since paid off her exorbitant student loans and rather than recommend more “tests” (i.e. $$$$), she recommended Precious Cat Litter. Always in favor of the cheapest, easiest, and simplest answer, I happily ordered it from Amazon. I replaced all the litter in the house (Tidy Cat) with the Precious Cat stuff and was ill prepared with how fast I saw results. Literally minutes later, there were fresh clumps in one of the litter boxes. Both cats took to this stuff like a fish to water. No longer do we find “surprises” propped up against the litter box when it comes time to clean them out and that’s pretty damned nice.

    So, I give this stuff an easy 5 stars right off the bat due to its ability to coax Bailey to start using the litter box again, and thereby curing her bladder infections for good. That alone makes this a 5 star product. It fully exceeded my expectations. What really makes this stuff special is the comorbidity of the following:

    1.) Cost – This litter is significantly cheaper than the major brands you see in large jugs at just about every supermarket in the country. For the longest time I couldn’t understand why cat litter was so expensive – I mean it’s not like clay and “proprietary scent crystals” are rare earth metals. Precious Cat Litter brings sanity back to cat litter pricing. It’s also pretty sweet that a 40lb. bag of this stuff ships with free 2 day shipping with an Amazon Prime subscription. Thus, the value proposition is off the charts with this litter.

    2.) Scent – There is none.

    No, I’m not just talking about the actual scent of the litter – I’m talking about after it’s been used. Bullsh-t you say? I can’t blame you – every friggin’ litter I’ve ever used that advertised such a claim has failed miserably. Cat urine is so putrid and so powerful that it causes many landlords to refuse cats to be present on their premises. I wish I had known about this product years ago because it effectively renders this objection null and void. The way this stuff absolutely smothers cat urine smells is positively game-changing. We have four cat litter boxes in our house – one is in the upstairs laundry room right at the top of the stairs. Normal cat litters would assault the olfactory senses of any poor soul unfortunate enough to walk upstairs in our house. Not so with this litter.

    It’s ability to c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e-l-y void the stench of cat urine is truly other-worldly, maybe even a little bit spooky. Absolutely nothing should work this well at canceling out one of the worst smells known to the human race. Thus, I have no other choice than to conclude that simple logic dictates that Beelzebub himself MUST be involved somewhere in the supply chain of this product – there’s no way humans alone have unlocked the superpower of neutering cat urine funk. However, this raises a philosophical question unto itself – how bad could the devil really be if he/she/it is involved with such a flawless product? Eh? Think about it.

    So, Precious Cat litter is not only super good at eliminating cat urine stench, but it also forces consumers to deeply ponder some of life’s most mysterious philosophical questions. Tidy Cat don’t do that, jus sayin’…

    3.) Clumping performance – To me, next to the puke-inducing smell of cat urine, scooping soggy piles of cat mess is the absolute worst part of changing the litter box. With the mainstream brands, I’ve noticed there’s about a 50:50 chance that the litter will clump. When it does, things are a-okay. When it doesn’t, you might as well don a painter’s mask and goggles to deal with the resulting acrid fumes. Once again, Precious Cat punches far above its weight here. This stuff clumps so consistently and so tightly that Detroit should consider using this stuff to fill potholes. Cleaning the litter box with Precious Cat is a much faster, much easier, and much less painful experience than ever.

    So, I conclude my review. Is Precious Cat a fantastic cat litter? Indeed. However, it’s something better than that – it’s a product that transcends its meager goals, which is to merely be a substance that cats crap into. For one, it’s absolutely unmatched in its ability to do what no other cat litter can do, namely “leave no trace” that a cat resides in your house, a “silent warrior” if you will. Yes, I said it – it’s essentially the Navy SeALs of cat litter. It’s also cheaper than its inept competitors. Perhaps most importantly, it can be the difference between a cat being happy and comfortable in a loving home and a cat finding itself in a shelter. Lastly, it’s so outstanding that after witnessing its perfection, you’ll be highly motivated to write paragraphs about it on Amazon.

    Cat litter.

    It’s Precious Cat or nothing.

    Podría decir sin problemas que es la mejor arena que existe: no aglutina, hace PIEDRAS que no se rompen fácil. Es fácil de limpiar y mantiene a raya los olores. Desafortunadamente tuve que dejar de comprarla porque en menos de un año el precio aumentó en más de 50% y la relación calidad-precio se vio tremendamente afectada. Ojalá algún día vuelva a costar 550 el paquete grande. Por supuesto la recomiendo si tienen la posibilidad.
