I have used this litter for two years now because I liked the claim of "natural product", the clumping and the pleasant smell.
However, the dust has increased with recent bags and my cat now has a cough and hiccups related to the dust.
I have switched to a recycled paper product and am very angry at the manufacturers of Rufus & Coco.
This used to be the best........
I have been using this litter for more than 6 years but it seems to have changed. The 'clumpiness' is not like it used to be and no longer holds urine as well as it did before. The litter seems to disintegrate and small bits of urine-soaked litter falls to the bottom of the tray, despite very regular clearing of wee and poo. I noticed a change about 2-3 years ago when the smell of the litter changed as well. I wonder if it's now being made in China?
I've found a replacement litter and it is 100 times better than this brand.

Can't Recommend - Dusty!
I got this litter, like many, because of the good reviews. However, it's just so dusty. My cats have been sneezing because of it, and the room my litter box is in is just covered in dust! I have trouble scooping it because of breathing in the dust. I would say it clumps well, and it seems to be doing fine with smells, but I just can't recommend it due to the dust.

Not 'Dust Free'
Tried this litter as it gets great reviews. At first I thought this litter was great, clumps well, easy to clean and reduces smells. However, after a few days, dust starts to build up on the bottom and creates a dust cloud each time my cats use it. They have actually started sneezing more often since using it. I now scoop out the dust to avoid them breathing it in. I will be changing to another brand.

Great for the first few days, terrible after that.
I, like most others, tried this due to all the reviews. The first few days were great, I got used to the weird corn smell, although wasn't thrilled with it, if it was going to do what it claimed I was happy to put up with it.
- First issue was the amount of dust. My black cat was starting to come out COVERED in beige dust and upon inspecting the litter the entire bottom of the tray has around 1cm deep of dust.
- Odour: It is supposed to neutralise odours within 5 minutes. For the first 2 days it was ok. By the third day and more on the 4...th & 5th day, I actually checked my unit for some 'accidents' as I thought perhaps with the transition, one of my cats may have had an accident as the smell was that bad. My litter box is hooded, not even open, and I went searching for both accidental wee's and poop's as the smell was so strong. I have had to clean the litter up to 3 times a day to stop my unit smelling like an animal shelter. - Tracking: It is all over my unit. the cats aren't kickers, it sticks on their feet, to their fur, it isn't just outside of the litter entrance, I have pellets everywhere and when stood on accidentally, they crumble and disintegrate to a powder. It is much worse than my previous crystal litter, I now take back all the times I thought that 'tracked' with a few crystals here and there. - Longevity: It is supposed to last for ages, however after 5 days it is looking like i will have to replace the entire contents of the litter box and start again. The entire litter smells and seems to be getting worse. The unit no longer smells like corn, it smells like stale musty urine. I can't see how removing clumps and topping up will fix this. I understand that the entire litter will need to be refreshed at some point, but I thought that wouldn't be after 5 days. Completely defeats the purpose and the claims for the price.
Nooo.. my cat things it's food!
My cat got excited when I was opening the bag (presumably from the smell, which is quite pleasant), then as soon as I put it in the tray, she came running and started eating bits of it. She is incredibly excited, and seems to think I've just poured her a massive bowl of kibble. I've had to lock her out of the room.
I don't have any other litter left in the house and have no idea what to do. At this rate, I'm going to have to fill the tray up with dirt from outside.
Excellent kitty litter - but very poor delivery service
I first started my kitten on Max's litter, as it is meant to be a natural kitty litter and as I have allergies I didnt want to use something that could exacerbate my allergies, plus I had read about all the crystal and clay kitty litters not being that safe for my kitten. Max's Kitty litter was great, but it just tracked a lot and didnt clump my kitty's wee.
When next in Woolworths, I saw Rufus and Coco Kitty Litter and as I had also read that corn litter was another really good choice for kitty litter, as it's naturally and good for the kit...ty and doesnt cause allergies, I decided to give it it a try and I am really glad I did. I've been using it for almost a year now and it's great. While it does have an interesting smell, it's not overpowering, doesnt set off my allergies and most importantly, my kitty loves it. It clumps on her wee so that means I can just get rid of her wee bit and the rest of the litter is still clean. Even with her poo, while it does smell straight after she does it, once it is in the litter for a while the smell goes away (ie if she did the poo while I was away for a few hours). The other thing I like, is that it doesnt track all over the place. Sometimes my kitty gets a bit too excited about the litter and flicks some outside her litter tray, but generally she's good. Even if it does get out, it's easy to just to throw it away or put it back in the tray, if it still looks new. And I have flushed some down the loo and it's been fine. The only gripe I have is that Woolworths doesnt seem to sell it any more and now I have to get it online and pay for delivery fee, when I could normally grab however many bags I need from Woolworth with my normal shopping, without having to pay a delivery fee. And I tried to get the product (6 bags) delivered - it took 9 days to get it to me (and I am not that far away). The order goes through an intermediary and then to a courier company. The intermediary kept telling me the courier company had all the details and the courier company kept telling me they didnt. - apparently the courier company couldnt do a redirection for 3 days. And that was only after numerous irate phone calls from me for someone to do something because I would not accept waiting over the weekend to make 12 days til I got the product delivered. So today the delivery arrived and then it was delivered after 5.30pm, after waiting for it all day by a totally slack delivery guy. Not happy.
