I've used Feline Pine for years! It really controls the odor and have never experienced a cat that does not like it, but I'm sure there may be some out there that don't. But mine have no problem with it :)

Well, this has inspired me to check out Feline Pine - has anyone used it

I'd be interested in trying the ExquisiCat, but no stores sell it in my

I've seen that brand and have always wondered how cats like it. But I won't
switch unless they tell me they want a change, lol!

good to know, thanks for sharing!
