Coles Clumping cat litter
I find this kitty litter excellent for the price and have been using it for some time. It clumps very well and is easy to scoop out. It is necessary to scoop out reasonably regularly (once every day or two) otherwise the clumps declump as they dry out but as I said if you get onto them quickly no problems.
Also it comes in a sturdy plastic bag and I cut off both ends and down the centre seam on the back and use it as the litter tray liner. This gives a seam free liner that isn’t scratched to bits, makes it easier to clean the tray and saves...money on buying separate liners. Also “re-using” which is better for the environment. The reason I give four stars is it doesn’t have any added scent but not a big deal. As others mention packaging is different to image shown - see photo of current packaging attached.
Purchased in January 2021 at Coles for $2.65.
Works really well
Great product! After my cat is done it will clump together and make it easy for me to remove it. However I will say you must fill the litter box half way otherwise you will struggle cleaning the bottom of the litter box because it will stick like concrete. Overall, great product and inexpensive.
A good litter!
I've used a few different types of litters and so far my cats like this one. I like crystals but my kitties don't :( Anyways, I have two cats; I buy 4 bags of Coles Clumping Litter (the one with the cat on the packaging NOT the regular Homebrand cat non-clumping litter, that stuffs terrible) and pay $11 a fortnight. That's extremely reasonable in my opinion. I scoop litter daily (sometimes twice daily) and change the entire box twice weekly. This isn't a litter for lazy people. If you leave it more than a day it smells. The litter doesn't mask...odors at all. But that's OK if you're on top of scooping waste daily. When cats pee in the litter it clumps up and makes scooping easy. Sometimes you get it stuck to the bottom of the box but this only happens when I don't put enough litter in the box. I'd recommend this litter to people on a budget and who aren't lazy when it comes to their pets. You cant leave it for 2 weeks and scoop every few days like expensive odor masking litters. But I'm more then willing to put a little effort in so I can save a few bucks for something my cats just sh*t in. Clumps well, absorbent It leaves tracks outside the litter box, will smell if not scooped daily.
Cheap and smelly
I used to buy this brand a couple of years ago, and it was excellent value for money. It would clump well, with no odour.
However, I started to notice a deterioration about 6 months ago, with a gluggy mess forming on the bottom of the tray, and not clumping.
I then switched to Coles Scented Clumping brand (read that review separately).
I recently bought again as a trial, and it was a disaster. The garage reeked of urine within a couple of days, and there were no clumps forming at all.
Doesn't perform as advertised
I have tried a whole range of cat litters and I'm pretty happy with this one. The cat doesn't resent using it like some of the other brands, the odour is contained, and best of all, it's economical: when you change it, you just tilt the tray so the clean litter falls to one side, leaving the used litter as a lump of clay-like matter in one spot. Just keep a cheap or old scraper handy and use it to lift the clump and put it in the compost. Plus it's not as bulky as some of the other types. Plus it doesn't get kicked around outside the tray as easily as the light weight ones.
Inexpensive. Clumping characteristic makes cleaning easy and economical. Heavy weight means it doesn't get spread around like the lighter ones.
personally, i would not recommend this product to others. whilst it is cheap and masks odour very well, the litter turns to a clay like substance when wet, which makes it very heavy and sticky, thus very hard to remove from the kitty tray. i ended up having to throw my tray away in the end. if you are going to use this product i would recommend using at least two cat tray liners to hold the products weight and help in the cleaning process.
cheap alternative product, no odour
turns to clay at the bottom of the kitty tray. hard to remove
