Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaClyde from Simply Pine is Simply Fabulous! If you are searching for cat litter that is affordable, truly absorbs odor, doesn't track out of the box on your pets paws, and is chemical free, I highly suggest Simply Pine! My pet immediately adjusted to the change in brands and this is the first bag that I purchased! This product, Simply Pine, truly eliminates odor without the use of chemicals. I am no longer stepping on litter getting carried outside the box via my pets paws. Also, I no longer worry about chemicals on his paws being licked off and ingested. I am also curious about the possibility about using the saw-dust in the flower garden as a form of compost. (of course not the vegetable area) I am going to contact a master gardener who can advise me of how I can accomplish using the saw dust as a new form of compost. I'm wondering if Simply Pine is a by-product of our nations west coast deforestation due to bark beetle infestation. I will keep you informed on my finding. And, I was wanting you guys to hopefully create a litter box system that would have a lift and sift system incorporated in the cat litter box for this specific product.

I am bringing home 12 week old kittens. Do think this will be good for them to use?
Hi Sandy, This is a great litter for all cats, however we do recommend our okocat super soft litter for kittens. It is finely ground and very soft on their paws. The simply pine pellet litter is made up of bigger pellets that might be uncomfortable for their paws initially, but is definitely a litter you can transition them to when they are older. Thanks

You only sell a 20lb bag of this litter. If the pine pellets are light weight, why does the bag weigh so much? How many litter boxes can 1 bag fill?. I use 2 boxes for 2 cats. Also I've heard not to change litter type when cats are used to clay.
Thanks for your questions. First, the 20 pounds measure the total weight and not volume. This bag of pine pellets may weigh 20 lbs, but a comparable amount of clay litter almost twice that for the same volume. If you are wanting a very lightweight natural litter, we recommend our super soft ökocat litter (https://www.healthy-pet.com/okocat/super-soft-clumping-wood). As for how many litter boxes it will fill, it really depends on the size of your litter boxes and how much you put in them. At about 4 lbs per box, it should fill approximately 5 boxes. Third, you can definitely change litter types even if your cats are used to clay. The best way to transition to a different litter is to do it over a period of a week to ten days by adding small amounts of the new litter to the old, until you have transitioned over completely.

What is the amount of phenols in your product? Can you guarantee a cat will have no toxicity symptoms if this is used?
All of our wood products are heat treated or kiln dried which reduces the level of aromatic hydrocarbons significantly. The litters have a slight wood scent but it can only be smelt when brought directly up to ones nose.

Are the pine pellets kiln dried to remove harmful phenols? I'm thinking of using this for my rabbbit's litter box and I read non-kiln dried pine is bad for small animals.
Yes, our pine pellets are kiln dried and therefore contain a non-detectable level of volatile oils.

I have the Feline Pine box which I have used for years. I am desperately looking for a pellet litter with pellets that disintegrate into sawdust and will sift down into that bottom box. Will your litter work in this box
Yes! Both of the Simply Pine products are non-clumping and will turn into sawdust that should sift into the bottom box. One is the larger pellets and the other is a cracked pellet.

I have heard that a sifting litter box works better for pellets but I don't understand why. Can you offer any help with the best types of boxes to use with your litter?
You would need to use a "lift and sift" type of litter box with the pellets. These have holes specifically sized to sift and remove the used sawdust into the box below which you can then empty, leaving the good pellets in the upper box.

Is this litter flushable?
Yes, our natural wood kitty litters are flushable and have been certified by SGS in accordance with ANSI standards (ASME A112.19.6. (JRS)) However, local limitations should be considered and flushing is not recommended if on a septic system. As well, the state of California has a referendum against flushing cat litter for protection of the sea lion population, since cat feces can harm sea lions. Be sure to only flush a small amount at a time.
