There are certain things you should never try to save money on by buying cheap, cat litter is one of those things. Having a smelly house from a litter box is nasty and no one wants to smell that. I bought this when I first had my cat not knowing cat litter was something to be picky on. First of all it is not really all that scoopable. It forms these really soft clumps that break apart as soon as you try to scoop them up. As for odor control, I do not think there is any! My cat used this litter one time and the whole upstairs smelled bad. Threw the whole thing out and lesson learned on this one. Moisture Absorption It appears to absorb the moisture but when you go to scoop it is still very wet and mushy. Ease of Cleaning The clumps that formed were very soft and mushy. Impossible to scoop out. Odor Control There was no odor control! Maybe I got a bad container but it smelled like my cat just went on the floor. Took hours of open windows to get that smell out. Ease of Use It was more dusty than some litters so caused me to cough as I poured it in.
