Very good if the smell doesn't annoy you
Clumps very well and good good odour control. love the fact it comes in big plastic containers which are convenient for storage and topping up. but tracks even with a litter mat so have to sweep up. I couldn't however bear the smell of the Instant Action version (blue label) and swapped to the unscented one which has been much better. Reliable and convenient and good value if you can can find on sale. But the tracking and dust has led me to try a tofu litter (PetKit activated carbon) which has almost zero tracking. clumps really well but much dearer as need almost 2 x 6L bags to fill tray. this is shrink wrapped for freshness, so decanted left over into Tidy Cats plastic container for top up. however am going to experiment with using less.

Purina Tidy Cats kitty litter
Had a nice fragrance, however, I have a burmese and devon rex and this kitty litter left such a mess in my bathroom, as it spread everyone and when you stepped on it, it crushed.
Love the product, shop around for good prices
Domain Pet shop sell their own version of this which is $20 for 12kg which is okay but dusty and sticks to the bottom of the litter tray.
Purina's one very much does clump tightly and doesn't stick to the litter tray. It works fast to stop odours. Its generally $20 for 6kg whether from Coles, Woolies or Big W. However their scent free version is $9 at the Reject Shop for 6kg!
I like this litter and will continue using it but my cats are taking a long while to get used to it. They use it and don't have accidents but its disconcerts them how m...uch it gets in between their paws and tracks around the place. The tiny size of the pieces is necessary but unfortunate for my cats. I'll stick with it though because it suits my version of kitty litter tray perfectly!

I love it but it’s quite expensive for a multi cat household!
It is the most effective litter on the market. I have tried at least 20 different types of litter in the last year and I always come back to this one! Unfortunately I can only afford it when it’s either $16 on sale at Woolworths or the box is on sale at big w. With 4 cats and 2 being pregnant I go through a ridiculous amount. Just wish it was more affordable.

Best litter EVER!!!
I have 2 indoor male cats and one container of this clumping litter lasts about a week and a half. It's so easy to clean the litter tray because the clumps are easy to scoop up and dispose of. There is no lingering urine or poo smell either and no dust when it's poured into the litter tray. My favourite is the High Performance. Unfortunately, I haven't found any in the shops or online for a couple of months. I hope it stock comes back soon.

Like concrete on our cat’s feet
I tried this because of the clumping, we usually use crystals. My poor cat got it stuck all over her feet, tracked it along with poo all over the house. It was almost impossible to remove from her feet. I had to soak them in warm water . The worst litter I have ever used!! Hard to remove from the litter box, our cat’s feet, and our house as it’s like concrete.

Excellent clumping litter
I used to use a different brand which went downhill. I’m so glad I found the Purina in my local supermarket as an alternative. It clumps really well making the litter box easy to clean. No odour either.

Best clumping litter we have tried.
We have two cats that won't use any other litter now. We love that it clumps urine and is easy to top up. There is an initial poo odour, but Tidy Cats quickly overcomes the smell so we don't come home to a stinky house. I used to keep an eye on pricing and purchase whenever the price was $16. I now buy from Amazon subscription for $14.36 delivered free. If only Purina would make the bulk pails, boxes or bags that you can buy overseas here in Australia to reduce cost and plastic waste.

My mum decided to change to this litter and it works so well. No longer an issue with sharing the bathroom with the cat and it’s litter tray. Easy to clean.
Best cat litter!
No smell - no problems!
This cat litter is great! When my cats burry their poos properly you wouldn’t even know they are there! The added bonus of having a easy to pour box.... I wish it could be refilled

Best cat litter ever!!!!
I love this cat litter. The clumping feature is amazing. Easy clean up. Litter lasts for ages. Plus my cat no longer pees on bed as she loves the litter.

Best I’ve used
Always smells clean and fresh, I don’t need to keep buying cat litter because it goes far and lasts longer. I’ve read reviews and complaints of cats walking litter through the house but this doesn’t happen with my cat at all. My cat has irritable bowel syndrome and is very very very smelly. Since I’ve used this product, I have barely noticed any smells at all. I’ve used heaps of cat litters and this is by far the best. Seems expensive but lasts so long with top-ups that the value for money is actually great.

I’ve pretty much tried every cat litter and this is by far the best in terms of odour control and not spreading around the home. I just wish it came in a more environmentally friendly package and didn’t take up as much room in the bin. It is expensive at $20 and usually lasts 2 weeks.
Purchased for $20.00.
This is the best litter l have ever used! I have a shocking gag reflux but not with this litter! It is easy to clean, goes a long way for the size and best of all does not smell! I stock up when it is on special at $16 at Woolies or Coles which is often!

Very expensive, poor performance
I thought this would be something special as it's so expensive, but it was so much worse than the supermarket's own brand. The cats tramped it all over the house. Don't waste your money.

that’s so disappointing!
It is very disappointing as we switched from crystals which seemed to be the only type of litter we could use in our electric litter tray and after trying many other types of litter we finally found one that we and our precious cat were happy with.
Hi there I've got a strange question... I've had a friends toddler eat some of the tidy cat (must of missed some when I vaccuned) can't find any answers on the Web site of tub.. should we be worried???

I know the 24/7 product is made from clay but with the scented chemicals I just want to check if it is Compostable. Thanks.
P.s otherwise it has revolutionised our kitty litter cleanup and we love the product.
