Pros: old formula: flushable, unscented, soft on paws
Cons: new formula: not flushable, dusty, scented, tracks easily, large grains
I really wanted a flushable clumping scentless litter and the first 3 shipments of this product was just that. The litter itself was a little dusty, but it was completely odor free and had very fine grain. My kitty took to it quickly!
My most recent shipment featured an "improvement" to the litter but in reality, what I found was the following:
* it is no longer unscented
* the grains are much larger
* there is even more dust created than before - we're talking sandstorms here
* the clumping power makes it less flushable which means the plunger needs to come out every day just to make sure this stuff goes down
Even after giving it a little time to breakdown in the bowl, it doesn't disintegrate noticeably.
Oreo never complained with the old litter; now he meows about this new one and not in a good way. He has also avoided the litter box on several occasions, and he never used to do that on the old formula. I don't know if he dislikes the scent or the larger grains. Time to transition to another litter.
Sadly, it was a 4-star product that just became a 2-star product.
