Precious Cat Ultra Cat Litter Review
Advertised Product Description
This is our Precious Cat Ultra Cat Litter Review. Precious Cat Ultra cat litter is one of Precious Cat’s most popular offerings. It has a unique formula that combines the heavy non-tracking granules of their classic litter with a medium grain clay. The clay helps to improve clumping abilities while preventing moisture from reaching the bottom of the litter box. It is a good choice for busy litter boxes that multi-cat families might have. In addition, it is advertised as being 99.9% dust free, hypo-allergenic, and all-natural. It is available in 18, 40, and 80-pound bags and 40-pound boxes.
Who This Cat Litter is Intended For
This cat litter is intended for those owners who are looking for a simple, effective clay litter that retains all of the expected attributes of a clay including clumping ability and affordability. In addition, the target audience can be both single as well as multiple-cat households as Precious Cat has optimized this recipe around busier litter boxes. Finally, this product is good for those on a tight budget as it is typically very reasonably priced.
What Makes This Cat Litter Unique
This cat litter is unique in its simplicity. It sticks to basics and feels that in doing so it has an effective and reliable product that doesn’t break the bank. We find this approach refreshing, as there are a lot of litters on the market that try to wow the user with exotic materials and fancy promises.
Clumping Ability –
This litter has some of the best clumping of any we have tested. The clumps are rock hard and stay rock hard for days. This also holds true for busy boxes. This litter just seems to soak up moisture and harden quickly and effectively. It also absorbs the moisture from urine quite well and, while it doesn’t exactly clump the urine, it soaks into the litter in large quantities before being a concern.
The litter by itself only has a dull smell of clay. Since no strong chemicals or perfumes are used then there is no concern for the powerful odors that some litters put out. In regards to odor control, it also does a very good job with both feces and urine for several days. Since the feces is encased quite well in the litter then there is really no escape for the smells. The urine is also held in check for a few days for the most part. After that, slight smells of ammonia can arise after the litter is getting close to being to capacity to be sure to keep an eye out in when this happens and consider swapping it. This product seemed to handle higher demands from two and three cat litter boxes quite well.
There is relatively low dust with this product. What is interesting is that it seems to vary from bag to bag. Some bags are virtually dustless while others seem to kick it up much worse. We aren’t sure if it has something to do with the manufacturing of this product, but there is definitely some variance. At its best, it is one of the least-dustiest litters on the market and at its worst, it is about average. Cleanup is super simple with this product, however. Clumps are easily removed and stay hard. The only major issues that can arise is if you let too much urine (moisture) get into the litter in which case it can become extremely hard to remove. Tracking is about average and you might find a few granules outside of the box but it is nothing majorly concerning.
Online prices for this product have been seen well into the budget-price tier. This is a fantastic price given the caliber of product you get here. We would happily pay much more for a cat litter that performs this well.
Overall Rating –
The Precious Cat Ultra Cat Litter Review earns 4.5 out of 5 cats. Nothing but positives to say about this product. It has some of the best clumping you will experience and the scent control is good enough for most applications, even in multi-cat litter boxes which it is designed to tackle. And that price! This is definitely a good choice especially if you are budget-conscious.
