Tidy Cat Scoop New formula 1 Star

by Dale Hiland
(Marshall MN USA)

Dusty beyond belief. A perfume, "Within our new formula," to take your breath away. I invite the developers to scratch in the perfumed dust and then lick their hands and then tell me it's just fine!

I first poured the litter into the box and the dust billowed around me and into my nose and mouth. The perfume was so strong that it stayed in my nose and mouth for hours. I immediately removed the "New Formula" and bought another brand.

I had used the old formula for years and then when they changed it....it became, in my mind dangerous for my animals and they should not need to lick that crap and smell from their feet. But it is just fine in their mind.

Tidy Cat had me send them a sample and they said finally told me that it's okay. I say it's not. So think about your cats cleaning themselves after using Tidy Cat and then think again.

Purina offered to send me a coupon for a free pail...I asked them why I'd want to get more of the stuff when what I just bought was bad. So if you buy it...make sure you purchase dust cloths and also maybe you want to buy face masks for you and your cats...and perhaps install a cat foot shower to stop them from needing to lick the smelly perfume from their feet.

Terrible litter

Doesn't clump.
Litter sinks to bottom and sticks. Not buying this again.

eyes burning
by: Barbara

I have used Tidy Cats for years and loved it. I have 5 cats and never noticed a smell. I kept the litter box clean every day.

I bought the usual 3 boxes for my kitties and immediately, within 3 or 4 hours I could smell the 'poo;. My eyes are watering also!

I am so disappointed. Can we start a petion to get their attention? WHY???? To save money? No one will buy it now.

Tidy Cat Now Sucks.
by: Steve + Patty

I have used the Tidy Cat 20lb Blue Top Jug for many years. The New and Improved formula sucks. The pungent, purfumey stench wafted throughout the house. I did send them a email but I know they don't care. It is all about corporate greed.

When one of our cats got in the box to take a dump, my wife and I agreed that the freshly squeezed cat turd smelled better than the new formula Tidy Cat. The next day I went to Walmart and bought Arm & Hammer Double Duty 20lb box.

The pungent stench from the new formula Tidy Cat is gone and the cats seem to like the Arm & Hammer just fine.

litter sucks
by: Anonymous

like others we used this a long time. my wife and I both noticed something was different, thought they just mixed up the clumping and regular litter on a certain lot, not so, not even a warning that it was changed, no NEW FORMULA or NEW AND IMPROVED. now we need to find different litter for our 4 cats. thanks TIDY CAT.

tidy cat wth
by: Anonymous

Tidy cat new formula sucks. I now have to mop my floors a couple times a week because the new stuff leaves spots on the floor. I'm really disappointed because I've used tidy cat for 10 years and now I have to change.

Love the Page
by: Sharon P

I used Tidy Cat Multiple Cats, Clumping, Scoop Away, whatever.. for 10 years or more. Loved it, my 5 cats loved it. I think it might have been Power Blend, Blue lid- maybe, with handle on the side (made it easy for this ole lady to lift and pour). Scent was great, no problem with cat pee, etc. or stinky odors in the house. Sure am disappointed Purina had to join the rest of the greedy corporations and cheapen their products. Won't be getting another dime from me for ANY of your products. Used alot of them too. Thanks for nothing.

MUD
by: Anonymous

I'm so glad I did this search, to see if there had been some sort of change with Tidy Cat Litter. Like some of you, I've used it for years without any type of problem. Suddenly I had "mud" in the litter box also and it's been making me crazy! I was convinced one of my 2 cats have a urinary infection or something else was wrong, but now I'm finding it's just the change in the litter!!! It's had me worried sick! No clue what I'll start using next (ASAP), but it won't be Tidy Cat!!

Terrible new formula lots of dust and not clumping!
by: Anonymous

So here's another well known company changing their product (probably to put more $ in their pocket)! We've used tidy cat for over 10 yrs and I've been noticing lately the high dust and urine smell! I started to do research and found other people with the same complaints.

What a shame ! Tidy cat reclaim your name and fix this. I now got to find a different brand :(

They do not care about quality.
by: Paul

Tidy Cats current sales are based on past quality not the present. They have changed their formula to a dust nightmare that doesn't clump and leaves you with mud for you cat to step in. I just called Purina to complain and Emily's programmed response made me realize that the new Purina has no concern about the consumers of their product.

New formula
by: Anonymous

I used Tidy cat for years with no trouble. I didn't notice the change other than the smell and then noticed cats were peeing and pooping next to the pan, NOT IN IT! Was disgusting.

I since changed to another product, cant stand house smelling like cat urine. I don't know what was going thru purina people's heads to replace it rather than to add it to their product line. My cats won't use it and for the price I can can buy sand!
