Feline Pine SCOOPABLE

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I know Sharky has already discovered Feline Pine's scoopable litter, I was just wondering if anyone else has and what they think of it. I've had my cats for 3 years now and it seems like I still haven't found something I'm 100% happy with.

I tried a bag of it in my litter robot and it was fabulous. LOVE that pine smell. However, no one in my town carries it and I don't want to be 65 miles from the closest source. It would be great, tho, as I could compost it in a separate compost pile for use on shrubs and flowers.

Hope you find it's just what you're looking for!

Ohh thanks! I am actually researching the Litter Robot right now too! Maybe you can find the Feline Pine online and have it sent to you!

I have been wanting to try it, does it clump the urine well?

My only problem with the Scoopable is that it is so lightweight....it's fluffy. It ended up all over around the box. Not to mention my white cats turned brown-ish from the litter itself.

I tired it well over a year ago, so they might have changed it slightly. But overall, I disliked it.

We got some donated to the rescue and all the cats with white on their paws or that were all white turned a icky brownish color. My fosters wouldnt use it though.

I just started using the Feline Pine (original pellets) in the litter. Mainly for at cat shows, but may switch completely over. I'm not sure how expensive it will be yet, but only have 2 cats, so it may be worthwhile

I just purchased a small box of this at target overweekend. $4.99
First time I've seen it.
I will be mixing in fresh litter tonight when I change.
Still looking for that more friendly litter, see how this one does.

Try stove pellets. They're basically the same as Feline Pine, and you should be able to buy 40 lb bags for $3 - 4.

I haven't tried the scoopable Feline Pine, but everyone says it tracks really bad. It doesn't sound very appealing. My cat seems to be accepting the transition to the pellets, so I'm going to buy her the Feline Pine litter box and use stove pellets.

Ditto! Sounds like something you put in the stove?

I love using the pellets with the FP sifting litter box! It makes litter box duty a breeze! Plus no dust and little tracking.

I just started trying it out as of Sunday. So far I can report that I am pleased with the smell (my biggest concern), is cheap where I'm at ($3.99/small bag) and it clumps ok, especially for a more ecological litter. On the downside of things it is tracking quite a bit, more than my normal clay clumping because it's so light, and it's also on the dusty side, so the cats have occasionally end up with some on their heads from the inside of the covered box.
I like it though....well, better than the presidents choice corn stuff. Thinking about trying WBCL again, since I only used it when Chester was itty bitty a couple years ago and stopped because my mom's cats wouldn't use it.

Thanks for the input on the FP litter box, mschauer. I'm hoping to love it too. I haven't ordered it yet only because I wanted to confirm that my cat will use pellets, but she seems to be accepting them.

The best way to locate stove pellets might be to find the nearest manufacture(s) and then find out where their retail outlets are. That's what I did. I don't know how comprehensive this is, but here is a list of manufacturers. I was able to find retail locations by visiting the website of a local manufacturer. They may be easier to find during cold weather (at major hardware stores, home improvement stores, etc.) But I think they should be available year-round at certain locations. I drove several miles to a more rural area of town and paid $4 for a bag at a farm supply store. YMMV on the material and size of the pellets that are available in your area. The pellets that I have are made from oak and are larger than Feline Pine pellets.

edit: I was at Wal-Mart today and noticed that they have the scoopable Feline Pine there. They also have a brand of pine pellets that is $8 for a 20 lb bag.

:EDIT: Oopps... I thought you were talking about the clumping kind:

I bought a small bag when it was on sale ($3.50) to see if they'd use it and/or like it. A couple things... 1. it is VERY light weight, so is dusty and tends to leave little flecks of pine litter on the cat's face, paws, etc and it is very pine scented, so if you're cats have an aversion to strong-smelling stuff, they might not like it.

I am now almost out of the bag I bought and I've been using it to mix in with WBCL and now chicken feed (corn based and clumps almost as good as WBCL) as an odor control and insect deterrent (I hope). If you or your cats have a problem with dusty litter, it might not be for you.

I realixzed I am using the feline pine CLUMPING not the scoopable...

For those using wood stove pellets... STRONG WARNING some are TREATED with fire starter
post #18 of 21
about 6 months ago I was thinking about useing the stove pellets but like Sharky said I was worried about them being treated with fire starter. We started buying wood pellets from Tractor Supply it is made to put in horses stalls and it looks just like Feline Pine and works the same way I have been useing it for 6 months but cant think of the name it starts with a E It comes in a 40 pound bag and is about 6 dollars. I dont have the bag ours came in or I would get the name off of it we get it and open the bag and dump it in a container to store.

Treated stove pellets will be clearly marked. The pellets that I use are 100% oak sawdust.

In some area they arent.. I used stove pellets for a while and found 2 out of 3 common brands here were in fact treated yet it was small print

MY SIL changed to it and her cat started peeing on the bed.

I will stick to what my cat is used to.
