I recently started using this litter after getting a new kitten who was using it at the breeder’s house. I was previously using the paper litter (Breeder’s Choice and Coles brand) and found that even with one cat, the ammonia smell would infiltrate my apartment and the litter would get soggy and need to be changed twice per week. It would also end up all over the house. The difference with Oz-Pet is amazing! No ammonia smell, barely any litter outside the tray, and both cats seem to enjoy using it. Never going back to the paper litter- this is fantastic! Would highly recommend, particularly if you’re in a small apartment.

Economical and odour-free
When used correctly this litter is track-free, odour-free and easy to clean.
I have a very large cat in a small apartment, so struggled for months with odour. Some litters that were recommended to me (Breeder's Choice, crystals, clay etc) were terrible and I'd have to clean out the contents as soon as my cat used it or the whole apartment would smell. Tidy Cats clumping litter was the only one that masked odour and was easy to clean, but at $20 a week (a 6kg container lasted a week at most) it was costing way too much and tracked grey powder a...

Love it - well the cat loves it
tried a number of different litters as one of our cats is super fussy but kept coming back to this brand. Any pellets outside the tray are easy to see - unlike small grains that can go everywhere. Definitely eliminates potentially nasty smells. Love that it is safe to dispose off outside - I use it to fill holes in my yard

Best litter I’ve ever used
Have been using Oz pet litter now for four years continuesly. I would never purchase anything else. There is absolutely no cat urine smell, you wouldn’t even know there was a cat in the house
This litter is very economical and a bag literally lasts for months. It’s fabulous!

Love it! Won't buy anything else :)
I am extremely impressed with this cat litter. The litter tray smell is one of my pet hates so to get a litter that controls and eliminates the smell is massive. I have used other expensive products and was hit with the smell every time I walked in the door. After complaining about the smell a friend recommended oz-pet litter and thought I should give it a go. I was so happy I couldn't smell anything! Even when I'm changing the litter. Extremely happy that I have found something that doesn't make my house smell like a kennel.

Best litter and tray ever
Litter tray easy to keep clean, There is no odour at all. I put a kitty litter plastic bag on the lower level tray so then easy to toss and keeps tray clean.
Have now changed my mind completely (as well as my flower pic) after receiving new litter sample fro
I contacted Oz-pet because I was so unhappy with the deterioration in the performance of this product with which I'd previously been completely happy. They sent me some bags to try of newer formulation with pellets now comprised of a small amount of some added pine as well as the eucalyptus waste from mills.
Well - talk about chalk and cheese!! In all fairness to Oz-pet, I have to update my review. The new litter was a lovely surprise in contrast to my most recent bags. I set up two trays side by side (one Oz-pet and one Kitter) and switc...hed the position daily to ensure the cats were using them equally. The cats showed no preference for either litter, so assume each was just as comfortable under paw and to scratch around in. This latest Oz-pet litter breaks down very well and my view is that it's now very much an equal to the Kitter brand though they have some difference. The Kitter wood breaks down a little faster so you end up with a drier, slightly fluffier sawdust in the bottom tray while the Oz-Pet still broke down completely (hooray!) but a little slower to be a little more damp sawdust but less bulk (so I think a bag may last a little longer) and end sawdust was neither wet nor smelly. End result: perfectly happy to buy Oz-pet again! I particularly like the idea that it's sourced predominantly from mill waste. I noticed that my previous bags were 15kg, while the bags sent out to me were 10kg - not sure if that will help to ensure buying newer formulation instead of older, but have put that question to the company.
I have used this over a year now. Reading reviews by others, I am surprised that people don’t read instructions and try an use it like normal litter. It is so much better than normal litter if used properly. The cost of the tray set up is easily recouped by the cheapness if the litter which you don’t have to replace as often as clumping or crystal litter. The cats feet stay dry even if you forget to change it properly as the urine falls through to the bottom tray. I change the bottom tray every couple of days, throw the used litter in a corner ...of the yard where I am researching it’s effect on a lemon tree (!).,and replace the litter in the top tray once a month when I thoroughly was the whole set up in soap and water. The used top litter goes in the compost. A big bag of litter $16 at last purchase gives at least three months supply as you need to use a handful or two each change of bottom tray. Remove droppings daily and flush. as to smell, I am noticing a bit in our very hot summer weather as the tray is outside in the catio during the day and heats up a bit. I figure if this weather keeps up I will need to decrease the time between full cleaning sessions.
Makes changing the litter enjoyable
I bought this upon recommendation. This product is very easy to use and clean. In conjunction with a sieve tray this product ensures you're not throwing out the unused litter with the used. I like that I'm not throwing my money in the bin but getting full use of the litter. It has a sawdust smell that isn't unpleasant at all. Would much rather that then ammonia. I clean poops out regulary through out the day and once a day ill empty the saw dust contents from the bottom tray. This is no longer a annoying task in my life- but strangely enjoyable. I will continue to buy this oz pet litter.
Winner Of My 12mth Litter Analysis!
We have 3x 5kg cats (Bonkers Nuts & Fruitcake!!) and despite loving them dearly we grew really tired of spending our holiday fund on cat litter, so I conducted a year long experiment with different types of cat litter, recording: Number of days per bag; Changes per bag; Days between changes; Tracking characteristics and most importantly cost per day.
The one thing to acknowledge here is that everybody's odour threshold differs. This is of little consequence to the experiment however, because any given person's Odour Threshold applies equally...over all litter types. This means that the number of days per bag may reduce or increase for some people depending on their Odour Threshold, but relative economy across all cat litters remains roughly identical to this experiment. My personal Odour Threshold is 3.0, given the following (newly invented) scale: 1 = Uptight: "Anything but the smell of pure new cat litter offends my delicate rose petal-like sensibilities." 2 = OCD: "I change the litter every (x) days just because (...the voices tell me to; I fear bugs, disease, God's brutal judgement etc.)" 3 = [word removed]: "When I open the door the smell hits me square in the face like a punch from Mike Tyson and I lose power to my knees. Then I change the litter." 4 = FERAL: "I live in a cattery and hose it down with recycled water once per month, which may be too often."
I have just got a kitten after many years, the breeder put me onto this product and I couldn't be happier, you need the tray that goes with the kitty litter to work properly. It doesn't have odour, I would totally recommend this and I'm fussy when it comes to pets and cleanliness in the house. Some people would say the tray is expensive but it is well worth it!
Three cat scrap
What a bunch of idiots. I've used this stuff for ages and it works perfectly if you use it properly. The pellets are meant to go black, that's how you know when to change the litter liner. The fact that the litter turns to powder is because that is precisely what it is meant to do. You only have to change the liner every now and then and the stuff on the top should last for a couple of weeks with a little top-up now and then. Grow up morons and use the product properly. By the way I've got three cats and three trays. This stuff is the best, and in the long run cheapest, I've found. As regards licking it off their paws...bollocks!
Oz-Pet Cat Loo Kit and Litter
This litter should be used with the Oz-Pet Cat Loo, included in the kit is a 3kg starter pack of Oz-Pet litter. The top tray sieve system works very well as the litter breaks down very easily when it's wet and I give the sieve tray a good shake. I save on cleaning and on litter by placing newspaper on the bottom tray then placing a plastic bin liner on top (I snip the bottom off the bin liner then flatten it out to fit the tray) I then add another layer of newspaper on top of the liner, then place the sieve tray with the litter on top.
Absolutely loving this system! My baby girl British shorthair kitten arrived on Thursday and from the first day she went straight to the litter box with no problems. I hate wee smell, so I filled the top tray with just a couple of scoops of litter just so urine can sink to the bottom and be absorbed in there. I filled the bottom tray very well (about 2cm deep) for this purpose. It is a day three now and there is NO smell whatsoever and I didn't touch the litter box as yet, except of removing some poops. I am going to scoop out some spots from the bottom tray this afternoon and re fill a little bit.
Fantastic product. Very happy! Would highly recommend it to everyone.
Excellent odour control and no tracking
We've been using the Ozpet litter and trays for several years now and it is a fantastic system. We ran out of litter last week and had to buy a supermarket brand until we could get to the pet supply shop. After 2 days I made a special trip to buy Ozpet because the smell of cat wee from the other litter was awful. Highly recommend Ozpet also because the pellets are large and don't track through the house.
Questions & Answers
How long can you use the Oz pet litter once the pellets have broken down?
I wouldn’t use the litter once the pellets break down, that means that they have been used and start to smell.
Can this waste be flushed down toilet?
No, it is not suitable to be flushed down the toilet. I have stopped using OzPet litter as it stunk the house out using the twin trays. I now have gone to Catlux clumping litter as the house does not stink anymore, however, it does not fully clump and I have to be careful in separating the good litter from the lump of wet litter.
can you flush the litter when you pick up the poos down the toilet ?
Yes you can flush the solids down the loo, I do and I have 5 cats inside
