Feline Pine Kitty Litter Pellets

Posted on April 17, 2007 by Allie


I was skeptical when I first tried Feline Pine. I’ve tried other environmentally friendly kitty litters before. One was made from recycled newspaper, another from cedar shavings, but when the whole house ended up smelling like cat, I quickly switched back to traditional litter.

When I saw Feline Pine at in the kitty litter aisle, I decided to give environmentally friendly kitty litter one last try. I’m really glad I did. My cat made the switch easily, and the only odor I’ve noticed is a pleasant, woodsy scent. No new trees were cut to make this product.

Feline Pine has:

  • no harsh artificial fragrances
  • no dangerous silica dust
  • no unnatural chemical additives
  • virtually dust-free pellets

A seven pound bag should last for four weeks. As it’s used, the litter pellets break down into saw dust. After scooping, the dust can be composted, or used as mulch.

Feline Pine is relatively inexpensive – around five bucks for a one month supply. You can find it at Petco, Petsmart, Walmart, and Target (in store only), as well as at many regional chain stores.

Go to the Feline Pine Website for rebates.

  3. This is the best stuff! We have three cats and you cannot smell a thing with this litter. Remove the poop immediately by scooping, the urine will just break down the cedar and does not smell. No dust, no tracking. The kitties all look like they just had a bath with shinny glossy fur because even the clumping litter had some dust before. I really recommend this.

  5. You know, I really used to like this stuff with my old cat. He was senior and on special Rx diet food for kidney disease. I used the clumping formula. It worked well with him – clumped, covered odor, flushed easily. There is a competitor brand called Feline Fresh that I had to buy a few times when I ran out of Feline Pine that wasn’t quite as good at the odor control but worked in a pinch.

    A little while after he passed away a couple years ago, I adopted two kittens. I decided I wanted them to be on a grain-free diet. Suddenly, Feline Pine stopped being so great. The clumps would fall apart if I didn’t deal with them within a day thus causing the box to smell increasingly of ammonia, but I endured because it was still better than going back to clay or corn (which was BAD with odor control on the old cat). When circumstances forced me to buy a bag of Feline Fresh again, I found that it was the preferred brand for these new cats. It holds clumps VERY well and is way better at controlling their odor. It also flushes excellently.

    I never realized that my pet’s diet would affect the effectiveness of their clumping pine litter. Food for thought.

  6. I’ve used wood pellets for the cats’ litter, too. It’s great! it smells good, lasts a long time and doesn’t scatter everywhere (tired of stepping on gravel!). But unfortunately, one of the two cats wasn’t too keen on using it and my flatmate, who owns the cats, refused to try it again even though I had bought some more. :(

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
