Product Review #6: Feline Pine vs Horse Stall Pellets (Video Demonstration)

IMG_1300This product has changed a lot and no longer works as it once did.    While it was never the bargain price of horse stall pellets or other bedding wood pellets, it at least worked.      I first started using it in 2006 and I sang high praises, but now more than ten years later it’s a totally different product that doesn’t work.     Watch my video demonstration to see how it does not absorb quickly or disintegrate like it should: The alteration has affected color, function, and removed odor control.   Urine just pools in the bottom of our sifting box with the pellets sitting there doing nothing.  I thought it was  one bag problem, but at least three bags from three different stores over several months disproved that theory.     For the best bargain on natural litter, check your local hardware or pet supply stores and ask for wood pellet bedding.    My cost was about $3.99 or $4.99 for  30lb bag.     I do not recommend wood burning pellets as they may contain undisclosed additives.  There are a few that are just the same as the pet bedding–soft wood only–with no additions and just a change in packaging from the same distributer.  If you do this you must call the company and ask directly to be sure (its always better to find bedding pellets).

    I used horse stall pellets for years. They worked well and the price was unbeatable!

      I only wish I had bought them sooner. I always bought at the grocery store for convenience. In the fall I bough three bags so I wouldn’t be stuck without this winter.

        I used Feline Pine for a few years before a friend told me to check out the horse stall pellets at Southern States. I thought they couldn’t possibly work — they were so cheap — but was pleasantly surprised!

    Hello, where are you located? I’m in South Florida and having a horrible time finding stores that carry this….do you have any hardware stores by name that you know of who might carry this? There are not a lot of feed supply stores down here, especially since I am located pretty far east. Thank you!
