That'll do donkey, that'll do.
By Nelson Abreu
So here's the deal folks. I've been using these for about a month. Due to laziness and poor timing, I was almost out of granules in my CatGenie. I ordered on of these and the entire bag fills the CatGenie just right. I recently opened up my CatGenie for a clean out, which I do every six months. I notice no additional wear, and no unusual amount of granules in the mechanism. The cats track it a small amount less than the factory granules, probably because theses are a tiny bit larger. To clarify, these are cylinder shaped, whereas the factory granules are cylinder shaped and squashed a bit.
The slightly reduced tracking is offset by the fact that the different shape creates a little more discomfort when you step on them barefoot.
All in all, I'm happy to save money buying these. They are overpriced, but much less so than the CatGenie ones, so yay for us. Placing my second order now.

Pretty Good Litter, With One Small Drawback
By MARA MCKANN
These pellets do function just fine in the Cat Genie. The mixed colors are also nice if the litter box is visible - for instance, in a high traffic bathroom - they camouflage the poops quite a bit.
No matter how often a vacuum is run, or how good the litter mats, some litter will always escape, regardless of which brand or system is used. My only dislike of this particular litter is with the shape of the pellets. The original pellets are slightly flattened, so they don't roll across the floor. These pellets roll farther, and when stepped on with bare feet in the night, it hurts more.

Maybe not biodegradable for septic
I am a little concerned that these might not be biodegradable for septic systems like the original Cat Genie granules. I didn't think of it when I purchased but went back after and could not find anything about it on the page. I wish they came in other colors because I do not care for the brown. It makes it look dirty. They are ok. The price is about the same as a single box of original Cat Genie granules so your not saving anything. Actually, the original is less money if you purchase in multiples.
