It’s empty in here!
I have many cats they all use the same litter the crystals are a little sharp but no injuries it keeps the wee smell in a poo I get rid of when they do one as some of my cats don't bury them it smells if not taken out
I’ve had two experiences with this product. The first time I ordered the one pack, which was great and the crystals were fine. The second time I ordered the value pack. However, it couldn’t be any different!!! The Crystals, in the value pack, were too small and fine and more of a powder than crystals. Even the colour of the blue crystals in it were different. It’s more like silica sand, not crystal. Stick to the single pack even if it’s more expensive.
I have used wood pellets for my three cats for a long time. A couple of months ago I bought 6 bags of this to try. It is nice and light. A plus for me because I am disabled. My 20 year cat liked it but my 2 5 years olds did not . It only lasted a week before I had completely change the litter. The urine all pooled at the bottom of the tray. Horrible to clean out . I will not buy again
i tried a trial pack of this litter but found that the urine went through to the tray and made it very difficult to clean went back to Catsan
I love this litter, and so do my cats. It absorbs smells brilliantly, and is easy to use. With 2 indoor cats I use one bag in a large litter tray and need to change it completely every 8 days, and of course remove solids daily. (The packaging optimistically says one bag should last 3 weeks with 2 cats. I have no idea how, unless my cats pee twice as much as normal cats!) It's not the cheapest litter on the market, but I will keep buying it.
I have been using this product for years, both XXL and the standard one and always been very happy. However, in the past year I have noticed a dramatic change in quality: it does not absorb the pee and the odour is really bad. Unfortunately I am now going to have to change product. Shame.
My little boy kitty has had a few instance with this litter where the crystals get stuck onto the end of his penis and have to be pulled off, which hurts him. We have to check him every time he uses it. It's also really annoying to have to keep cleaning up the crystals as they get kicked out of the tray, and don't get caught in the tray mat when kitty gets out. The absorption is decent, but we always end up with urine pooling at the bottom of the tray, and it stinks.
Love this cat litter and so does my cat it's cheap and affordable and lasts ages. Will keep 're ordering. Keep providing the product please.
This litter was my first try with silicate litters for my two longhaired cats and it was not a success. The crystals got stuck in their fur, ending up around the flat. One of my cats started to get sneezing fits from this, had never had them before. It's very dusty. This is the main reason I stopped using the product, I was concerned it would end up in her lungs. Also, found that it didn't keep the smell away after a while, and didn't last as long as my usual Cat's Best Smart Pellets.
I used to use the stuff religiously and found it was exceptional at odour control and absorption however when I bought it a few months ago the smell and rate it absorbed urine was horrendous. I put it down to a bad batch and switched to the tigerino clumping clay which was amazing. The problem with the clay is that it tracks around the house and creates other issues and so recently tried the silica gel again but I found the same problems. It seems that tigerino have changed it for the worse
I've nearly always used Nature's Gold clumping litter for my 2 longhaired cats but thought I'd try this litter on special deal. I left one litter tray with Nature's Gold, and put this silica litter in the other one. I have the Modkat litter boxes so needed couple or three bags to fill up enough in the tray. At first only one of the cats would try it, after a day or two. Now she only uses this new litter and the other cat has also started preferring this. Keeps smells down, but is quite dusty.
I wanted to try an alternative to clumping as I was having issues with it sticking to the tray. The trial went well taking two weeks to cut over from clumping. However one of the cats has started urinating outside the box. 3 days after changing the crystals he starts urinating outside. We clean solids out every day and stir the crystals but the smell of urine is extremely strong and there is excessive pooling at the bottom of the tray. Does not last the 2 weeks stated for 2 cats.
The litter itself is a good standard silicate litter. I bought 2 trial bags (3.6l) to test out first. The only issue with the trial bag is it is meant for a small litter tray. It covered mine by 1cm so as soon as they use it, they've kicked the litter out the way and peed on the tray floor. You need at least the 5l bag to cover a standard sized tray and it last more than a couple of days. I've had to use both 3.6l bags in one go (costing more than if I bought one 5l bag!) so not cost effective.
very good litter, absorbs nicely and is easy to clean. lasts for long, doesn't create a lot of dust around. odour control might be improved. sometimes gets moved around on cat's paws...
We have 2 house cats and find the silica format works well from the point of view of absorbing the smell/urine and scooping out the other deposits.... this litter works just as well as any other that we've tried and is clearly a lot cheaper which ever way you look at it - per bag or per kilo... the litter usually needs changing every 6 days or so for the 2 cats...
Very good litter indeed!
I have 2 indoor Ragdoll cats and have been using this litter for over 4 years. It really is the best, so absorbent, no smells and so much cleaner to use than other litters - it also saves you money as you are not having to change it as often as other litters - I can not recommend enough!
Does track- as badly as clay, and still unpleasant to stand on in bare feet! Less dust than clay litter, and much preferred by our cats to the old stuff!
Was a little dubious about the claims of a month without a change for one cat at first, but my oh my you would never guess I had a "Lion in my living room" with this litter. It really does completely eliminate all odours unlike other litters that make these claims this one is true. The price is outstanding and I always get the promo deal with the food. If you want your house to smell like a house and not a litter tray then honestly this is the litter for you.
Not dust-free as claimed - actually quite a bit of silicate dust. Some crystals break down into teeny tiny pieces which get everywhere and ingested by cat cleaning paws. Even large crystals stick to cat's paws and track. Not very absorbent - a slick of broken down urine-wet crystals on the bottom of the tray. Makes my cat sneeze. After possible allergy to this causing skin itchiness, scabbing, overgrooming and subsequent vomiting of hair and stomach irritation; switched to Bio-Catolet.
I have 3 litter boxes, 3 cats and a 4 month kitten. I put a bag in each box fortnightly. I would be surprised if one bag would last any cat a month. I use 6 bags a month for 4 cats. That said, I love it. It's not dusty if you don't pour it in from a height. It tracks a little, but better than clay litter. None of my cats bury their poo in this, which doesn't help the smell after a poo but it soon goes. Definitely needs cleaning daily - scoop poo and mix WELL otherwise pee can pool at the bottom.
Having used Bob Martin silica litter and a supermarket one that I suspect was the same in own packaging I discovered Tigerino. It is just as good although I take the bag outdoors and sieve the dust out before putting it in the tray. I also tried Nullodour which was awful, very fine and only lasted a few days whereas Tigerino can last a fair while depending on how many cats and trays you have.
I have a creamy Persian cat. Throughout his 3 years with me I tried the following litters: - Applaws Nature's Calling: My favourite and best of all. Has a pleasant smell, traps odours well (but, have to admit, not so good as Cat's Best Oko Plus), clumps reliably and lasts long (I usually pour half of pack at once, so 2 packs of 6kg last for 1,5-2 months). It does track a bit though, but least of all the litters I've tried and sweeping/hoovering once or twice a week is enough. The only minus is that it colours my cat's creamy paws as it is dark brown. - Cat's Best Oko Plus: It traps odours very well, lasts for long (similar to Applaws) and has no issues with clumping. However, this is probably the worst tracking litter I had. I had to hoover/brush twice a day as little bits stick onto cat's paws and fur and is spread everywhere at home. I didn't even use all pack, switched back to Applaws. - Cat's Best Nature Gold: Tried once. The pellets are really large and this makes clumping not so effective. I bought it because it said that it does not stick to fur and is suitable for long haired cats. Well, those pellets did stick to my cat's fur and tracked a lot. Though it is environmentally friendly and eliminates smells for some time. But loose litter eventually becomes smelly and you have to change it. - Porta Pine Wood: Good cat litter, would rank it 2nd after Applaws. It smells fresh and is literally dust free, leaves no visible marks. It lasts long, great odour control, clumps well and my cat loved it. However, it tracks quite badly, but not as bad as Cat's Best Oko Plus. - Catsan Hygiene: Not good at all. Never bought again. Clumps stay wet for a long time making it difficult to remove from the box, and when they dry they glue to the box so that I had to scratch them off. Controls smell bad, tracks a bit and clumps of wet litter stick to the fur. It is dusty and caused runny eyes and sneezing to my Persian friend. - World's Best (Green and Red): Not good. Advised by vet after using Catsan Hygiene. It is dusty and didn't improve my cat's runny eyes much. It clumps very well, tracks a bit. Though it stinks horribly, probably because loose litter eventually starts smelling. Thus, no odour control. As such I do not remember it lasting long. - Tygerino Crystals Silicate: Used in an emergency when my order was late. Disliked bad smell. It also runs out quickly, one pack lasted for 3 days, tracks a bit.
I have been on the eternal search for a cat litter for my 2 Maine Coon boys who seem to be able to spread cat litter around the house with abandon. After reading reviews, I thought I'd give this a try and they absolutely hated it. The problem was that when they stood on it and tried to squat down to wee, it would continually move and in the end they would give up and use the Cats's best Nature Gold I had in the other trays. In the space of a week they used it twice and therefore it was a complete fail in my household. May be better suited to light cats and not large heffalumps!
This is the best silica cat litter I have found. It lasts much longer than the brands I have bought from supermarkets and pet stores and it is very good at combatting litter tray smells. You do need to rake the litter through each day to stop pooling.
This is the best litter I have used in years. I would definitely recommend it.
have been using this for over a month now with 2 cats after using wood pellets for a long time. our cats are house cats and its very important we dont have smells. I just scoop the poop out with a nappy sack and brush any spillage with a dustpan and brush. Only just opened the second bag of 6 that I ordered!! very cost effective also!!
I have bought it after I have used Bob Martin litter, unfortunately it doesn't last as long as it says it will. I have one, small cat and need to change the tray after a week! It should last longer up to 3 weeks! Bob Martin's on another hand is more expensive- but so much better.
I have 3 kittens, when this arrived and I opened it, I first thought, that this is a lot of money, for what it is. Until I tried it,Excellent, no odors, absorbent, dust free, compostable and earth friendly. What more can you ask for, incredible stuff, and 3 very happy kittens.
this is an excellent litter that absorbs urine and eliminates all smells and does not track around the house. BUT it is not dust free. when you first pour it in or stir it round a white powdery dust is very evident so definitely make sure you fill up and empty it outside. i am not sure how or if this affects your cats health but although i love this litter i will be looking into it as i have noticed some sneezing occasionally. not sure it is a natural product.
I have 4 indoor cats. If I had 1 kitty this stuff would last ages, just scoop the poop, stir it around and your done for another day. Empty and replace at the end of the week or a fortnight. I have 4 cats and 2 cat litters and this stuff holds up to the challenge of keeping my house smelling good as long as I scoop twice a day and change both litters once a week. Very impressed and a great price too! I will never change to another cat litter unless a cheaper 5l silicate brand becomes available. Top marks!
This litter looks and smells fresh - the kittens took to it straight away - the 'toilet odor' has diminished since using it and just looks so much cleaner than the average cat litter - it is such good value at the moment with the three packs on special offer - definitely the best cat litter I have used.
We have a touring caravan and always take our cats away with us and I find this litter brilliant, as you can imagine in a tiny space smell can be a problem but not with this litter I just clean out poops regularly and my silver Exotic and red Birman are happy using it, and it lasts a full 2 weeks then I tip it all in a carrier bag and bin it and we are all ready for the next break, if we just go away for a few days I leave the tray and used litter in the caravan till next holiday and if I pop into the van between breaks I have never smelt their loo.
this is the best litter i have used i have two very fussy ragdolls and they really like this one
Having 6 cats lt was a problem to keep the house free from litter smells.Tigerino is the best litter my cats have ever used .No urine smells any more.It is clean looking,. and best of all no dust and much cheaper than in the supermarket .I would definitely recommend this product above all others.
I have been using Tigerino Crystals for some years now and it's excellent. Both my cats are indoor kitties, so the litter trays get a lot of use. With daily lifting and sifting, this litter can last up to 2 weeks and really cuts down on the odour of urine particularly. Very good value on Zooplus too!
I have 3 cats one geriatric male and 2 young cats plus the added problem that my 3 terriers find cat poop irresistible. After searching and researching on-line I thought that Tigerino might be the one. It stops the smells in seconds (So my terriers were not always sniffing the air for poopy smells)Its so easy to clean I have tried different ways of cleaning the tray out. Cleaning the poop out once a day, every 2nd or 3rd day and both worked excellently. I have also tried picking the poop out whenever then once a wk throw the whole lot away which also worked well.What finally worked best for my 3 was to put a deep layer in litter box pick the poop out whenever then top up if need be. The cat litter not only masked the smell instantly but the urine soaked litter turns yellowy in colour which helps. It also has blue crystals in it which I think help with the smell also if the terriers do go in the tray they dont like the crystals! Another bonus! I have tried the other Tigerino silica litter but my 3 cats are not keen on the scented litter.Using silica litter also had a funny side...The 2 younsters have been used to wood based litter and the 1st time they used their tray one cat jumped out and up in the air in shock horror the other refused to put her feet in it she would balance and squat with all four of her feet together on the edges of the litter box to avoid touching the litter.They did get used to it quickly but whilst doing so have done balancing and acrobatics that would have qualified them for the Olympics!! Finally this litter is light weight and very economic which goes a long way.
We are absolutely fine with Tigerino: for my 1 1/2 cats (the 'half' cat is a Tomcat who stays out most of the time) I remove the whole litter lot every 8 days by tipping it in a shopping bag, no scoop required, then I rinse the tray and refill it with half a bag. No smell, no tracing, no fiddling about, perfect product for people with little time and fuzzy cats.
Been using this litter for 3 years, and I find it the best of all the cat litter i've tried. Also seems better than other brands of silica litter for some reason. I also mix it with another non-clumping litter for what I think are optimum results :)
