After many years trying different cat litter and ending up with a recycled paper one. I ran out and went to my local supermarket and noticed that this one was nearly out of stock. I decided to try it while waiting for my on line delivery of the recycled litter. I am sold on this litter there is no odour at all except for the grainy smell. the cats seem to like it as well. Mind you they like the taste of it as do my dogs but other than that it is a winner.
Sticking with this one, it works a treat!
It has been some years since I've had the need to use cat litter. Last year we were a house of 4 cats so it was more feasible to use sugarcane mulch and river sand in trays and once soiled to just toss the lot on the garden. Now I'm down to 2 cats (the 2 males passed away last year). I decided to go back to my wood shaving flush-able litter I had used many years ago but they have changed the formula and my 2 girls were tracking the stuff all over the house, even though it had great odour control and pleasant smell. The pet store convinced m...e to go with the "sifting" kind. It was pellets that turned to dust sort. Not only was fresh stuff unpleasant to smell it had no odour control whatsoever! So then they recommended this. Sure it has a "cereal" kind of smell to it when fresh but it's not unpleasant at all. I'm yet to change the litter boxes after like 2 weeks (I know you should change them after 1 week but I did fill the trays quite full). No urine odour as yet. My girls seem to really like it and there is minimal tracking. I scoop and flush any solids each day and I can see that the urine has broken down some of the box contents already so I believe this will do great on the garden. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this at all.
I just bought this last week after seeing the good reviews here
Low smell and I think it is better than the Breeder's Choice recycled paper litter due to close to NO smell and ease of picking out the nicely coated dry poops.
Can dispose of in the garden. Am now wondering if I can flush the poop down the toilet since it's only coated in rice husks...cost me around $6 and I think I might get 3 - 4 weeks out of it as our cat only does one poop a day.

Best cat litter!
I can honestly say, after trying paper litter, clay litter, crystal litter and tree wood litter, this is THE BEST ! The smell of the litter is like a wood smell, not bad at all and it masks the smell of urine somehow! I don’t think you can ever mask the poo smell though, which I expect never to be able to! I use this litter in two cat litters trays. Which is shared by my two desexed males + desexed female. My cats love the litter. It is very easy to maintain as I shake the tray and the clean litter separates from the soiled litter which I just...scoop out and dispose of! It does track easily though but because it masks the smell and is easy to dispose of I count myself as lucky to find such a product and I sweep often, that part doesn’t bother me! I’m very happy every time I purchase a small bag from coles for $6 something as it’s a peace of mind product ! Especially fact it’s natural smelling etc :) thank you!

My two boys and I love it
What is wrong with the people who say this litter doesn't work? I have two desexed male (indoor only) cats and two litter trays kept in the shower recess in a 2nd bathroom. Yes, it does have a natural rice grain-type smell. As I am used to the smell from the trays, I ask visitors if they notice any offensive odours in that bathroom and they all say no. It is easy to scoop the poop and flush down the toilet. I shake the tray to separate the loose litter away from the urine clumps. I scoop the clump(s) into a waste bin that I empty into my ...compost bin. When the cats scratch the litter around, it is retained in the shower recess. I use a long-handled dustpan/brush to tip it back into the trays. It is not carried around the house by my boys. It is very economical. I buy the 12.5kg bags delivered to my home and they last for at least 4 months. I often still have half a bag left when the next delivery arrives. I am a real 'cat lady' and have used many types of cat litter over the years. I like this one the best for its low environmental impact, ease of use and ability to neutralise the strong ammonia smell better than anything I have used before.
Purchased in March 2019 for A$21.59.
My Kittens like this product better than others I've tried.
After trying several types of litter I've found this is the best by far. It's safe, easy to get rid of; just spread it around the garden and is a natural product. Being kittens 4 and 5 months old now, they do still kick a bit of it out of the box sometimes, but it's easy to brush up and put back into the tray. I buy the 4kg bags as they are easier to store than the 12.5kg bags. They also work out cheaper for me.
Desperate for Woolworths to restock
This litter is the best. We use it for night time and rainy weather. My cat always gets it everywhere but it’s soft under foot when you stagger out half asleep. Garden and lawn loves it. I put the tray out in the sun during the day and the rice and UV eliminates any doors and I can use it for over a week.
Best one yet
I switched over to this product after the clay litters then breeders choice failed to neutralise the odour of my recently sexually mature male cat's wee. I admit Max's litter has an odd smell but its great at neutralising the ammonia odour coming from the wee. My boy accepted the litter without fuss and I dont need to change the litter as often either as there is no horrible smells. Very easy to clean too! Hopefully this product doesn't change like most do.
Unfortunately the worst litter so far
It has a bit strange smell, like cereal or smth, I didn't mind it but my cat refused to use this litter. Unfortunately he decided that sofa or anywhere else in the bathroom is much better to pee on instead of his tray... Going back to the crystal litter after 2 days trying to convince my cat to use this product.
For many years I have purchased Max's Cat Litter and always felt it was a very good product. Lately, however, I notice that it is quite powdery. I preferred it when it was mostly pellets. I thought at first the product was more powdery because it had been shaken about before or at the point of sale, but continued use has demonstrated that that's just how it is these days: about 30% powder and 70% pellets.
The odour was overpowering
I purchased this wanting to be a bit more kind to the environment, and instead the cat decided that it was nicer to use the couch as a toilet than the litter tray due to the overwhelming odour that permeated from the litter tray. A horrible product that was thrown away. Back to the drawing board.
Worst smelling litter I have tried!
This litter smells worse than what the cats leave behind in it, and that's saying something! I thought I would try it as the litter I use is very expensive and I thought it might perform similarly while being less costly. Big mistake, it took weeks to get the horrible smell of the litter out of my bathroom, the cats were reluctant to use it too and preferred the second tray with the other litter still in it. Had to throw it away in the end and go back to my previous litter.
Best cat litter!
I've tried a whole bunch, this stuff is seriously good. Purina Tidy cats is good too - probably on par but is expensive and the sweet scent is too strong for my cat. This cat litter smells good (naturally, rather than an artificial scent), soft on paws, cheap and very easy to clean - clumps very well! Super odour minimising, can't smell anything other than a nice rice smell.
Best I've found.
I love this litter. It smells a little rice bran like, for obvious reasons, but I can just scoop out the faeces and leave the urine to dry. I change it once a week and there is only the rice smell. My baby girl loves it. My previous was a "clumping, odour minimising" litter, and it did neither. Plus it was impossible to sweep up completely.
I will be continuing to use Max's
2nd Worst cat litter Ever
This cat litter has zero absorbancy & zero odour control. 1 bag lasted 2 days, I constantly pull out soiled parts, but my cats wee would sink to the bottom causing a huge ammonia type smell. This might be acceptable for some cat owners, but not me or the boss (Naji the best cat in the world)
Best cat litter ever
I have limited space in my unit, so am very conscious of litter smell. Max's is the best of 4 brands I have tried. As a previous reviewer noted, it indeed smells a bit like breakfast cereal, but I don't find it unpleasant at all. My mother cat and 4 kittens love it (in fact, one of them plays in it....yuk). Very happy customer!
