Q: Does anyone use that pine cat litter?

I was wondering how well it prevents litterbox odors. Also any problems with getting your cat to accept change?

well, there's more than 1 pine litter out there. most of them are pellets, but there is also clumping pine litter out there. i can't really speak for its odor control capabilities, but i can say that the clumping variety clumps reasonably well...and that if you have a Litter Robot, i don't care what the web site says, Feline Pine Clumping DOES NOT work with Litter Robot!

I tried the pelleted type and as far as I know, NONE of my cats used it. I had set up one new cat litter box with the pine pellets, but it went unused. Since my cats still had their usual litter available, they used the usual and ignored the pellets. I don't know if they would have used the pine if I had put pine in all their boxes.

I thought the pine odor was very strong and intolerable to me for the first few days. The pine smell actually was quite strong for a few weeks. I normally like the smell of pine, but this was simply too powerful indoors.

I have tried pine litter pellets in the past. My kitties did not like it! I usually love the smell of pine but, found the smell extremely overbearing. That is probably why my kitties would not use it. If you plan on changing, I would do it a little at a time. Most felines do not like sudden changes. Good luck and please let us know how you make out. You may also want to consider joining our litter box training and advice group.
