The fake that this is made of pine shavings contributes to its light weight, but I don’t necessarily care that it’s natural. I may have heard some possible bad things about pine shavings before, but I have to admit that I like the smell of wood far more than I like the smell of litter — scented or not.
So this resealable plastic bag is light but there’s no way that it replaces 20 pounds of regular litter, but this is just impossible. every time I scoop, which is one a day or every other day, I have to refill the litter pan about halfway. It seems like scooping just takes a lot of this super light litter. You wind up throwing away much of the unused litter. I also find the light weight to make it hard to scoop. The clumps just want to fly out of the scooper and the individual particles of litter aren’t heavy enough to fall through the holes.
Perhaps the worst part about the best feature of this cat little is how easy it is to track, which I am sure contributes to having to refill the litter box on an almost daily basis. The area around the litter boxes has never been this bad and the wood shavings stick to fabric, so I constantly find them in my carpets and rugs, on my furniture and in my bedding. Anywhere the cats go, this Natural Scoop litter is sure to go, too.
As the litter becomes less fresh, it becomes really sticky and clumps to the litter pan and scooper. It’s pretty gross.
All in all, while this smells better than traditional clay cat litter and weighs less, I’m not sold. It requires more clean up and takes more time to scoop.
