Fresh Step® Extreme Odor Control Scented Litter
Effective, but smells awful
This litter works just as well as the unscented, but unfortunately smells much worse. Our cats reek of litter smell after they use the box, but it does its job and clumps like its supposed to. This seems to be the only kind in stores anymore though. Unscented is preferred over this stinky mess.
Best Cat Litter I've Ever Tried
After many years of being a cat owner and trying so many brands, Fresh Step will always be my litter preference but when I bought the EXTREME, it has really made life alot easier to deal with the cat litter!
I cant say enough good things about this version of Fresh Step other than to say it really works to cut the smell down and make the box cleaner time after time!
This product does what I have been looking for.
Having multiple cats (4) and one of them is very particular about the litter. It took me many brands and scents to find the right one that the cats like and I can live with. While it is much dustier than other brands, I can adjust to the dust if my cats are happy and use the litter instead of the carpet. Other brands did not control odor like Fresh Step does. This litter came recommended by my vet. Clumps well and is easy to scoop compared to other brands. I am glad I took my vets advice.
I would not use again
I bought this product after using other types of Fresh Step products. This however, was my least favorite. It seemed dustier than the usual multi-cat litter I normally use. In addition, it had a bad oder to it. The scent was very strong, but not in a refreshing way.
Great odor control, not so great scent
Because of the prescription food my cat Kaycee has to eat, she urinates a LOT. It smelled really bad, no matter what litter I tried. I'm really amazed at how well this litter controls odor. For the first week or so, I'd forget to clean the litter box for a couple of days because it controlled the odor so well.
I do have two complaints. First of all, I do not like the scent at all. What's worse, it seems like the scent follows me around, like it sticks to my clothes. I know there is an unscented version, but none of the stores anywhere near me carry it. Also, this litter is extremely dusty. I was cleaning and filling the litter boxes this morning, and could barely breath because of the cloud of (scented) dust.
I do highly recommend this litter for odor control. Just be prepared for the strong scent and dust.
I tried this litter cause I was curious. I gave it a "no" for recommendations because it is just too dusty! The scent & odor control is outstanding. But the dust it creates is not justifiable. I went bact to my regular clumping Fresh Step.
Love this litter
We have 5 cats in our home. We have struggled to find a good litter. after switching to Fresh Step we are amazed at how well it can handle such a high volume of use. With 5 cats there is obviously odors but Fresh Step does a fabulous job keeping it under control.
Thank you Fresh Step!
Newer doesn't mean improved - on a backwards slide
I tried this out because I have 2 cats, and because one of my cats' solid waste messes are reaaallly stinky, even when covered up (buried) properly. This litter was dustier, didn't clump as well, smelled worse than the other types of litter (when it was CLEAN, before being used!), and did not cover up the odors as well. I was really disappointed that I'd wasted the money, and had to mix it in with another type of Fresh Step so I could use it up. I won't be using any new products by Fresh Step in the near future.
5 KITTIES AND IT WORKS GREAT
I currently have 5 kitties, 3 females and 2 males from ages 11 months to 14 years and they all do fine. When I'm adding new litter they wait to be the first one to use one of the 3 litter boxes. A true kitty house!
I have 2 sphynx cats who have notoriously foul smelling poo; I have two litter boxes - one upstairs (for the blanket dwelling cat) and one downstairs (for the I'm just one of the dogs but with 4-wheel drive cat). I started out using Fresh Step, I"ve tried a few other brands and I always come back to Fresh Step. I only recently found this Extreme line and IMO it is the best in Fresh Step's entire line. I now have to check the litter box rather than smelling it seconds after the deed is done. I thought the Odor Shield line was good, but LOVE LOVE LOVE the Extreme line.
Fresh Step Extreme
I have 4 cats that are totally indoor cats. I have used every cat litter known to man in my search for the "right" cat litter that will do the job. I finally found it!! Your Fresh Step Extreme Scented Litter is the best!! I am totally buying this from now on!!!! THANKS!!! :-)
Fresh Step Extreme Scented Litter is perfect for my indoor cats. Thanks.
This is an amazing product!
My cat is almost 10 and for years I struggled to find the right litter for years. I have finally found it! My cat is a very stinky cat and you could always tell when she used the litter box. Now I can't even tell when she is using it. This litter has such a nice smell to it that even after a few days of not cleaning it the litter smells clean. I recommended this to my friend and she told me how much of a difference this has made for the house and the cat. Thank you Fresh Step!
Fresh Step EXTREME ODOR CONTROL!!!
I LOVE this brand and refuse to use anything else. I used to buy Tidy Cats but I got frustrated with the gummy creations stuck to the bottom of the litter box and it really didn't do much on odor control. I don't have that problem with Fresh Step, and it totally eliminates all odors. The Extreme is best for us; I even prefer it over the Multiple Cat formula. We work long hours some days and there have been a few times I've gone a little over 24 hours without scooping the litter box and you don't even notice the smell. And we have three kitties. I hope they never discontinue this formula.
Extreme Odor Control -my favorite Fresh Step product
Thank you Fresh Step! Your Extreme Scoopable Scented 42 lbs has been the best discovery -- reduces time to the store, change litter, and reduces overall cost and the big bonus reduces odors.
I have used Fresh Step for more than 15 years. Now that I have 3 cats, I purchase (2) 42 lb bags at least every month. The Extreme Odor Control is my favorite of all of your products that I have tried.
This is the best product so far that I have ever tried for my cats. I have three kitties and tend to scooping the boxes each and every day. The scent of this product is so pleasant that it is almost like having an air freshener in the house. I really like it. Seems less dusty than other products that Fresh Step offers, too.
I have always had cats and no matter what litter I've used there was always a lingering smell. With this litter you don't even know that there are 2 four legged furballs running around. You can't even tell that it hasn't been cleaned for a few days if we have to go away. My cats love it, it smells great, and it clumps so easily and cleanly. It's worth every penny!
THE BEST LITTER!!!!
i love this litter it is the only one ive found that blocks the odor i have 4 of the stinkeist cats and i have 2 litter boxes and this litter is the best i wont get no other only the extreme not even the multi cat litter from fresh step works but the extreme does 8 thumbs up!!!
I have 3 wonderful Kitties and the youngest is very fussy about his litter. I scoope the litter box daily and he loves that I do this if it is not done say I go away overnight or a few days he complain LOUDLY for a 6 month kitten. He will also refuse to use the litter box if I use anything but the Extreme apparentily he don't like the smell either LOL
Not happy with the reformulation
I am not happy with the reformulation of this litter. It has much bigger pieces that do not sift well. When I scoop up the dirty litter, I have to keep shaking the litter scoop back and forth, much more than usual, to sift the litter through. This causes the urine clumps to disintegrate. And the urine that is left in the box turns to ammonia and really stinks. Which, in turn, makes us have to completely empty and refill the entire box more often. So, to recap, this new formulation is less effective, and makes me use more litter. :( Unfortunately, I can't see that I have any choice but to shop around for a new litter.
I have tried many different kinds of kitty litter over the years, and this is the best. I love the smell of the fresh litter, if it doesn't smell good before the cats use it, it stands to reason it won't smell good after! I don't plan on buying any other kind.
Best litter by far
i used to buy the multi-cat formula for her. Ever since this came out and i started using it, wow, it really does the job.
I wont go back to other litters
Recently, we changed our cat over to a healthier food and suddenly he had a very stinky litter box. None of the other litters would even begin to cover up the smell. The scent of this litter is pleasant and not too overpowering and it gets the job done. Plus, our cat gives it two paws up. I wish I would have found this litter sooner!
bEST LITTER EVER
i WAS LOOKING ON THE WEB ONE DAY AND FOUND THIS LITTER ADVERTISED ON AMAZON AND I WAS LIKE WOW FRESH STEP HAS AN EXTREME ODOR CONTROL LITTER. I HAD TO TRY THIS LITTER I WAS SO FED UP WITH BUYING TIDY CAT AND IT SMELLED LIKE I HAD NEVER CLEANED MY PETS LITTER THE NEXT DAY. THE SAME THING WITH ARM AND HAMMER, I BOUGHT THIS LITTER ONCE AND I WAS HOOKED IT JUST WORKS, IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY I WILL NEVER USE ANYTHING ELSE AGAIN.
This stuff works!!
We've always used fresh step multi-cat, but one certain member of our feline family is particularly stinky, and you could always tell when he had jsut been in the litter box. Not anymore! Only downside, I now have to order online because none of my local stores carry it anymore. They stocked it for probably 6 months, then it disappered from their shelves?!?
I'm a proud cat owner and also a college student in a house of people who refuse to clean cat litter so at times I'm away for a few days and worry about the litter box smell roaming around the house. With this litter i have no worries it controls smell for extended periods of time my only complaint would be that it doesn't clump cat urine as good as i would have hoped for it to.
I absolutely love this product. I have a few cats and I have always used freshstep clumping litter; so when the extreme came out i couldnt wait to see how it measured up. I can honestly say this is the best litter i have ever used and my cat like it as well. Leaves a fresh scent when ever they use the litter box and it isnt an offensive oder(too fragrant). I recomend this litter to everyone i talk to that ownes a cat. Its well worth the cost and it lasts longer than any other litter i have used.
Karey from NJ
not the best
Not the best in the Fresh Step line of litters.
The regular scoopable litter contols odor better.. Im not sure what makes it extreme.. besides it is extremely stinky!
We have used your products for many years and everyone tells me it's hard to believe we have 3 indoor cats and my house has never smelled like "Cat". Thanks to your Fresh Step product this is possible. NOW, your company has gone to the next level. The Fresh Step "Extreme" is even better. Odor control lasts longer and our cats really like this. Clumping is faster. Great Job
Best litter I have ever used!
I have two 16 year old cats. One of them suffers from an intestinal disorder which causes his feces to be extremely foul smelling. The other is diabetic which causes her to drink and urinate excessively (even with twice daily insulin injections). This cat litter takes care of both of these problems in terms of odor and clumping. I no longer smell either the feces or the urine. My cats really seem to like it better as well. Thank you, Fresh Step, for helping me more easily deal with my aging cats!
Excellent product, indeed
This is the best litter you have ever made, my two cats and me absolutely love it. NO SMELL whatsoever, it is great.
I live in a studio so its really important that I have a litter that will contain the smell from my two cats. The littler I was using previously made the whole room smell horrible. Fresh Step Extreme hides all of the smells and clumps amazingly.
Fresh Step EXtreme Odor control litter
BEST LITTER EVER!
I have a kitten (yeah no multiple cats here to stink up the house), and you would not believe what this little girl can put out! Shes as cute as a button and we were desperate for anything that would help. We tried many things, even Arm and Hammer cat litter deoderizer that we sprayed daily. Nothing was helping, we were in the process of putting her up for adoption. We even tried changing her diet. Still nothing. A couple of weeks ago we were in our local Wal-Mart and found this litter. We gave it a try and now every morning we are able to watch our kitten do acrobatic jumps with toys. Thank you fresh step, you guys are truly life savers!
I love this litter. The only thing I hate is that there is too many types to choose from. It makes it hard to choose which type to get. Haha. I didn't notice too much of a difference from the multi cat and the extreme odor one. I will try the new lasting power one next though, just because I am curious.
My boyfriend moved in with me four months ago into a small apartment with his two very big kitties. I love these three cuties so much, but the only place we could fit the litter box was in the corner of the dining room (with attached living room)! Pe-ew! We searched high and low for a good cat litter for months but nothing worked ...UNTIL ... we discovered this one ... Fresh Step Extreme. Now, I can actually use our living AND dining room again and never smell the litter box - at all. It is my dream come true! Thank you, thank you!
My laundry room doesn't reek anymore! I can barely tell the litter box is in there. This product not only gets rid of the odor, but my cat loves it and doesn't fling it out all over the floor. Clumping action is awesome.
Love this litter!
I love the extreme litter! I currently have 3 cats (soon to only be one :( ) BUT this litter keeps the odors in the litter box! Other litters I've used for multiple cats you can smell after the first time one uses the box! This one you don't smell at all!
I just purchased my first fresh step extreme cat clay litter 4 days ago for my two cats and the results have been absolutely amazing.There is absolutely no smell and very little tracking compare to the other litters I have tried which tracked everywhere. I was a bit sceptical about trying a nonscoopable litter because I have always used a scoopable litter. Nevertheless, I am not disappointed. I am glad I tried it. The maintenance is practically minimal compared to the scoopable litter. It absorbs urine and smell beautifully. I would definitely recommend this product. I purchased a 40 lb. bag from Costco for only $9.99. Great bargain!
Finally found my perfect litter!
I currently used a popular brand cat litter, but it did nothing for the smell for years. Recently I went to petsmart and noticed the Extreme Fresh Step, I have never used Fresh Step before. Let me first say, I have a cat with IBS/IBD.... you cannot control that smell. Everytime he uses the little box, it goes through the whole house. I mean everytime! Ever since I tried this new Extreme, I am switching all my litter boxes over! It smells amazing! It has totally taken alot of stress away!
Finally! It doesn't smell like we have a cat!
My daughter's cat has been a blessing and a curse. She is so cute and really great for my daughter, but the stench has been almost unbearable. I was beginning to feel like she had some super urine that was beyond any help. After pulling my hair out trying the cheap litters then the Tidy Cats and finally ever different kind of arm and hammer litter I thought it was hopeless. When i was recommended this product by a friend I was skeptical but now I am rejoicing. Finally. Finally. Finally. Thank GOD.
I'm the Girl who's tried them all and yes everyone is different but for ME THIS IS THE BEST!!! Its Amazing how i can walk into my bathroom and not get knocked down by odor at the door! Love EVERYTHING about this product!
Replaced one odor for another!
This definitely gets rid of cat odor, but the strong perfumey smell was too much for me. One of my two cats has a very strong litter box odor, and I've tried dozens of litters to try to get rid of it. Fresh Step is the best brand for us, but I like Mutli-cat scoopable better than this. The perfume is not so overpowering, and it still eliminates odor. Unless you have a really large space that you are trying to fill with scent, I recommend the Multi-cat.
This fs extreme is for cats with extremely odiferous deposits!
When I first tried the new fresh step extreme litter I actually thought it was a bit too highly scented and that so much scent might irritate kitties sensitive noses. Not to worry. Though it is strongly scented when first pouring it into the box it dissipates but is always "ready" to handle any odors. After initial pouring it leaves a very pleasant scent and there is no scent or odor from a cat or cats when this is in the box. Highly recommend this new formula for those whose cats leave challenging aromas in the litter box. It can and will handle anything your cat puts out!
No Cat Smell!!
We have 5 cats inside and during a recent party one of the guests commented "you'd never know you had cats in here, there is no smell!" and she was standing 4' away from two litter boxes!!!
Too 'perfumy' smelling
I sadly purchased this particular type of FreshStep because it's so difficult to find any large-size boxes of the unscented variety. Since I suffer from allergies especially to products with so-called 'scents,' I try to avoid them at all costs. I'm disappointed that FreshStep's packaging is so ambiguous that I was not alerted to the power scent of this particular type of litter. I can only hope that I'll find a store that carries the large unscented formulas of FreshStep.
Good Clumping but too strong of a fragrance
I have 5 cats. Two of them are very sensitive to perfume and other odorous products. They tolerate the Multi-cat one but they were not happy with the Extreme. My house smelled great though!!
No Paw Points
We just purchased two boxes of Fresh Step Extreme Scoopable Scented Cat Litter. Unfortunately there were NO paw points anywhere on the box. We didn't notice that until we got them home. Talk about a disappointment. We take in stray cats and have a small animal shelter so we need all the help we can get. So next time, no Paw Points, NO purchase.
I was having trouble finding the right litter for my cat. I went through many different brands of litter and types until I found this litter. This is the only litter that can mask the smelliness of my cat. It is amazing, and last a while. Even if I happen to miss a day of cleaning out the litter you can't smell a difference. I would highly recommend people using this litter.
Best Litter EVER
I've owned cats all of my life, and this is easily the best litter I've ever tried. I love it, the cats took to it immediately, and my roommate, who has never owned cats before, thinks this is the best thing ever too.
Extreme is the BEST cat litter!!
I used to buy the lavender scent Fresh Step and loved it, but my grocery store stopped carrying it. I saw Extreme about a month ago and bought it cause I have 2 litterboxes and 5 cats and I need something extreme! This litter is so good, I forget to clean the litterboxes! I swear! I don't smell anything. It's amazing! I've told all my cat lovers about this litter. It's a miracle.
This litter has an already musty odor to it without the kitties adding anything to it. It clumps well enough and the cats seem to use it just fine. The only the Extreme about this it is Extremely bad at stopping odor!
The best littler EVER!!
I have 3 cats in my 1400 sq ft. condo. I keep one litter box per cat but they all tend to use the one hidden in my dining room, which is located just as you walk in the house- and NEVER is there an offensive odor - most peple are shocked when they discover that I have 3 cats living with me. I have tried less expensive or "on sale" brands - and everytime end up disappointed and going back to my Fresh Step Extreme
Well worth a little extra cost
Thank you FS for making my home an odor free home with cats
Only thing my cats use.
This is the only litter I can get my cats to use. If I put something else in there they will NOT use the litter box.
What a great product!
The "Extreme" is the best litter I've used. The stinky odor of a catbox no longer exists. I get the fresh smell of the litter, only, when I clean the box. It isn't a cloying smell, like some. I am so-o-o-o impressed with this litter, I will use nothing else. THANK YOU!
I have 2 cats that are both in their teens. I feed them Science Diet cat food and have NEVER used other litter since I tried FRESH STEP. Over the years new scents, strengths, and styles of this scoopable litter have emerged. Between the food they eat and using Fresh Step, no one had EVER been able to SMELL my cats. They are shocked when they see them - especially 2! I am a HUGE advocate for feeding healthy food and using FRESH STEP to any one that has or is getting cats. Thank you Fresh Step for continuing in your quest for the best.
not a fan of the Extreme scent
I've used Fresh Step for years and accidentally picked up the Extreme version of the 25-lb box, and will ensure I do not 'accidentally' grab this one again. The smell is way too pungent, and I've never had a problem with my cat boxes smelling badly with the original version of Fresh Step.
Otherwise, it still works just fine for clumping and masking the other litter box smells.
My Smelly Cat is Smelling Pretty!
Love this litter! I feel like I have gone down every pet aisle and tried everything on the shelf; and still I had a smelly cat. I saw that Fresh Step had a new product "Extreme" so I thought why not? It worked wonders, I am sure that the smile on my cat's face is just as big as mine.
It worked so well I recommended it to family members-now they are using it too. My smelly cat is smelling much better thanks to Fresh Step Extreme!
LOVE Fresh Strep EXTREME!
Please do not discontinue or change a thing! I love the fresh, clean smell and although it might smell stronger than the other FS blends, it controls litter box odors better than any cat litter I've tried, and I've tried just about everything! I have three cats and you can't smell a thing, even when they are in the box.
this product stinks
the only problem i have with the product is that it reaks. the cats i guess don't mind the smell but i do. i'll never buy this product again. i don't know why you couldn't put the same smell for this product as the others. i haven't switched to cheaper brands of cat litter because i liked the smell of yours. if you switch the smell of the other types to this one you will lose a customer
this works WONDERFUL!!! a MUST have if you have more then one cat!!
Best Cat Litter! <3
BEST CAT LITTER!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH! ITS THE BEST ONE I'VE USED!!!! VERY GOOD AT ODER CONTROL! CAUSE I ADMIT I DON'T CLEAN THE CAT LITTER EVERYDAY AND IT DOESN'T SMELL!!!!!!!!! DON'T STOP MAKING IT PLEASE!
This litter is great!
This is the best litter that I've tried! I was disappointed with it until I got my cat a bigger, deeper litter box and she started actually covering her litter. With the big litter box, she does great with this litter! It clumps well and is easy to scoop!
I have two cats, and when I had them as kittens I thought they wouldn't use the kitty box too much when they were older, but let me tell you, they do. A LOT. I have to scoop three times as much as when they were little and the smell can be so overpowering I have to let the room air out before I even start to scoop. I tried a few different brands, and after nothing was working I went to Fresh Step Extreme and I can use the same litter for over two weeks at a time before having to change the whole box. That says a lot for this cat litter. I wish I had this litter from the start. Great Job on making this. I'll never switch brands again!!
Best litter ever!!!!
I have been struggling to find a litter that could combat the odor of the litter box. With the extreme litter the room the box is in doesn't smell. I can even clean the box without smelling it. I recommend this litter for any one with a smelly cat.
This litter smells great
We all have experimented with litters to finally find the right one and this Extreme litter is the best yet! Other litters still have odors and of course will leave the cat smelling just like it. Extreme has a pleasant aroma and my cat CoCo never has the after math of the litter on him. I recommend it highly, try it, you'll see! Lesley
Smells throughout house
This litter has a different scent than the other litters and it is much stronger than others. The scent permeates the entire house, even though we have covered litter boxes. It also clings to the cats.
We added some of this to our previous litter. Within 24 hrs my allergies were horrible. I picked up one of the cats and instantly had a sneezing fit. Now I wish the weather was nice enough for me to open the windows and air out the house. What has my husband really worried, is that one of our cats doesn't smell like it, and now we have to find where she went to the bathroom.
I have to agree with the other negative reviews on here that this product smells horrible. It smells like disgusting spices to me and unfortunately does stay on the cat and stinks up an entire room! Right after the cat uses it the smell fills the entire room/portion of the house. That could be the reason why it's always on sale..
Two happy cats
i just like to say how happy my cats are with Extreme Fresh Step. no more stinky litter box to do our jobs in GREAT WE LOVE IT . It eliminates the ordor around the clock 24/7 thanks again
Smells Amazing and Clumps Great
I love how this litter doesn't stink up the room, and actually makes it smell good! It also clumps well so there is no mess.
Don't try anything else!
I've always used fresh step products but I will try other brands at least once. I always go back to fresh step! When they came out with Extreme I immediately began using it. Toby is a big cat who makes BIG messes so the extra strength was welcome! Anyway, I then saw that a competitor who we will call...um...Leg and Wrench had come out with their super odor defeating litter. I thought, 'what the heck?' and gave it a try. IT. WAS. AWFUL. Now, in our home we do not waste things so we did use the entire box but I can tell you that our litter box has never been cleaned so often as it was with that litter just so that we could get through it faster. I went right back to Fresh Step Extreme. You just can't beat their odor control and clumping.
The best cat litter for multiple cats!
I also have one "stinky cat" and this litter helps with that issue! So easy to scoop. This is the only cat litter I will use.
BEST LITTER EVER
We use this in the litter-robot II litter box and let me tell you.... two best inventions ever! I will never again purchase another type of litter. Had it not been for the kitty condos, cat toys, cat grass, and cat beds all throughout the house, you'd never even know we have cats hahahaha ;) Seriously, greatest litter ever created... hands down. :)
LOVE THIS LITTER!
This Fresh Step Extreme is AWESOME! I won't willingly buy anything else! My local WalMart was sold out and I had to get litter so I bought Arm & Hammer. The next day I smelled the litter boxes as soon as I got out of bed, and I scoop twice daily. NOTHING else compares. To everyone complaining about the scent, I ask you this..Would you rather smell the litter, or the stuff IN the litter?? Keep buying other brands and thats exactly what you'll smell..the poo! But in MY home, I prefer to not smell cat so I will continue to purchase Extreme. Exclusively!
Extreme Fresh smell
i love this one over all i have used except one other cat litter. but i would deff recomanded this one for people who have multi cats.
I have nothing bad to say about this litter. This is honestly the best litter we have ever used. The next best would be Scoop Away, which doesn't even come close to odor control but matches in the cat's satisfaction and clumping. If they ever get rid of the extreme litter I will cry.
FRESH STEP EXTREME IS THE BEST CAT LITTER ON THE MARKET
Having owned cats for decades, I have tried a lot of litter. With Fresh Step Extreme for the first time I feel confident when visitors arrive they will not be met with cat box odor, nor am I when I return home. I have one large cat and one 'normal' size cat, so we have a large litter box. I use one 17 pound box #out of the 34-lb package# to refill a freshly cleaned/washed litter box. To keep the litter dry and fresh, I scoop the box and stir the litter every day. I use the second 17-pound box to add litter intermittently after scooping. Amazingly, Extreme not only keeps my cats happy and my house smelling like no sweet cats reside there, but the 34-lb box lasts nearly a month. My cats smell good after they step out of the box right up until the last day. My visitors don't mind visiting. I enjoy having an odor-free litter box for my cats and an odor-free home for myself. I just worry now that Walmart will stop carring the product or worse, that Fresh Step will stop offering the product.
The best or the rest
This kitty litter smell so good it even gives the cats a good smell after they leave the box, Clumps very well. no smelly odors come up from the litter box when you are cleaning it. It is so much more better than the others I have tried and the fresh smell lasts longer to. And, the cats seem to like it to.
Why wouldn't you want EXTREME odor control?? I got this one because the lavender litter isn't available at my WalMart anymore and it ended up being an okay thing. Works great
This is the best litter. It doesnt smell and the cat likes it. I have tried other brands and they just dont compare.
This is TERRiBLE! HEAVILY PERFUMED! Can't be healthy for cats.
I bought this because I was in a bind and my local Target was out of Fresh Step Unscented (which isn't really unscented, but the perfume is pretty mild). This litter didn't have "Scented" clearly marked on the box like all of the other Fresh Step litters did, so I decided out of desperation to give it a try. Got home and discovered WHOA! THIS IS THE MOST PERFUMED, OFFENSIVE SMELLING LITTER I HAVE EVER PURCHASED! At that point I realized I can't let my cat use this for more than 24 hours.
Well after having this in my house overnight, my cat stinks like toxic perfume! He sits next to me and he reeks of this stuff and the poor boy is certainly ingesting the chemicals from this perfumed garbage whenever he cleans himself.
Honestly, I find it amazing that my cat is even willing to use this letter - I'd think many cats would go outside the litter box because the smell is so intense and unpleasant. It has to go! NOW. And I think I'm done buying any type of Fresh Step clumping litter. I'm appalled that Fresh Step would subject cats (whose sense of smell is 100 times stronger than ours) to such heavily perfumed products.
I just love the Fresh Step Extreme! This is the best fresh step ever, noone even knows I have a cat, because there is no smell! This is an Awesome addition to the Fresh Step products!!
VERY UNPLEASANT SCENT
I thought I would try this "new" product as I have 4 cats that share 2 jumbo boxes. BIG mistake! The scent is very unpleasant(ALMOST as bad as Arm & Hammer which is the WORST litter i ever used) and lingers on the cats after using the box. Fortunately, I also had some containers of scented multi-cat and added them into the Extreme Odor Control to take off the edge of the unpleasant scent. I'll never buy this formula again and stay with the other scents.
Cat litter is very important in our house. With 4 cats in the house, odor free is very important. I have tried several brands and Fresh Step Extreme is awesome!! I do not smell anything when I go into the utility room. I will never buy any other brand again.
So far, it's the best
I started using Fresh Step clumping litters six months ago. I have tried them all, but with 18 cats, and limited space for their litter boxes, I find Extreme, is the cat's meow. I buy eight 34lb/month, and so far I have not had a mess anywhere but in their box. I do wish it would release from the litterbox walls better, but that may come in the future. I am very satisfied with everything, and my guys have no complaints. So far, it's the best I have used.
I liked it, my kitty didn't...
I thought it was great... but then my cat started acting funny... Started licking all of the fur off of her tummy and did her stool business right next to the litter box... I tried to put up with it for too long because I liked how well it controlled odor and clumped. But I had to switch back to the Multi-Cat formula. She's doing much better now!
This is GREAT litter from Froghair in NC
I love the fresh odor. I have 12 litter boxes with 6 of them holding up to 30lbs of litter in them. i purchase a 350 lbs at a time. All of my cats love it and when you clean them they roll around in the boxes. Will not change brands.
Odor control is excellent
Fresh Step® Extreme Odor Control Litter is probably the best litter I have ever purchased. Even when you first open the box, it immediately begins to make your litter area smell better! I have never had a problem with this litter smelling bad. My guests can't smell a thing!
Since I live in an apartment with two other people, I have to have the litter box in my bathroom, which is in my bedroom. I was afraid I would always smell it, but not when I use EOCL! I wouldn't use another litter to save the world.
Pass on this one!
Started smelling cat urine elsewhere in the house, then my cat pooped in front of the fireplace on the rug. My cats have NEVER made messes outside of their litter boxes. I came here & read reviews on this product & realized it MUST be this new Extreme litter formula! So I went to the store at 10pm on a weeknight to buy the trusted Multiple Cat formula that I've always used. Came home & dumped both litter boxes into the trash. What a waste of money. Just cleaned parts of my carpet. I'm guessing my cats will no longer be reluctant to use their boxes now that I've switched back. The perfume in this formula is simply awful. Stay far away from this one!
Good, or Bad?
I assume my cat enjoys this litter more than most others, FreshStep is the only brand I use but now that I've gotten the extreme odor control, he doesn't even try to cover up his business anymore. I'd hide his litter box like in comercials to see if he would do the potty dance, but I don't want it on my floor. He is also an outside cat, but it surprises me that he will come in just to use the littler box.... So I assume he must like it.
I absolutely love this litter. The fresh clean smell is STRONG and LASTS a long time. Thank you for a wonderful product. My three cats use that litter very faithfully. I was given some corn scoop able litter and they wouldn't even use it! They prefer Fresh Step!
I love how long the litter's fresh scent last so long.
This product is the best and when I can't get my hands on it because the store is out and I have to buy a different product the difference is very very noticeable. I have 3 indoor cats and they go
outside a lot too, but when we use this product the litter box does not hold an odor for several days. When we use a different product the odor is noticeable on the first day. Thanks fresh step for this wonderful product.
The Best Litter Ever
I asked my local Walmart to carry this litter after I bought 1 (from Petsmart). I have gotten several customers (& my family & friends) to try this litter. I thank your lab techs for the wonderful light clean fragrance & for how it neutralizes those odors! After 25 years of owning cats (as well as cat rescues) & trying so many litters; this is the best product on the market! I wish I owned some stock in this product. I definitely recommend this product to all cat owners; you won't find a better litter!
Tiny House, Big Smell
I have twin kittens, so twice the stink. I love treating them to canned food on special occasions but it makes them use the kitty litter twice as much and it smells worse than their dry food. I always purchased the cheap litter because I go through it so fast. I saw the paw points and decided to try this brand of litter. Turns out it is the best litter that I have ever tried! My cats love it and even when they just come out of the litter they smell good! Something about this litter gives off a pleasant odor and makes my tiny 900sqft smell clean. I will most definitely be buying this brand from now on. Plus, the paw points give me a fun challange and I'm exicted to collect enough points to trade in!
only problem is the dust
While I think this product does a great job, no smell... the dust that comes when pouring it from the container has me ready to wear a mask. I am wondering if anyone has run into this problem. I literally hold my breath every time I fill the litter box. I have used fresh step for years and did not encounter this problem with the other varieties. I am not holding the container that far up from the litter box so I am not sure what is going on.
I have yet to smell my cat boxes since trying this new product! No amonia smells when cleaning the boxes and the scent released when mixed is pleasant! Kudos Fresh Step!
I tamed my cat from being wild to being a lovable, sweet, mischievous rascal! She, along with a couple of siblings, were born outside in our outdoor shed. When I first noticed them, their parents had abandoned them and they were afraid of me but through time, patience, food and love, they became very tame. I only kept one of them and brought her inside. The first litter I bought was an off-brand and will NEVER get that again. I changed to Fresh Step Scoopable and will ALWAYS use it. Wonderful product!!
I really love the Fresh Step products. My Shorthair Orange tabby always got Odor Shield Unscented and it worked great, clumps easy to pick up and covered the smell.
I now have a new cat, this one is a Long Hair Orange Tabby and I picked him out the Fresh Step Extreme which seems to work great to mask the smell and its clumps great for easy cleaning.
My only thing is he smells like the litter all the time. The litter smell just seems to stay in his coat. Everytime he lays on something or we pet him he leaves behind the scent. Not sure what to do.
We are down to 3 cats right now, but even with 7 cats this stuff works! It's amazing to me that other brands can't even come close to this stuff. I can forget the litter box, cuz the smell, or lack thereof, fails to remind me to change it! I have had two new cats to train, and this amazing product trained them for me. I can't imagine EVER trying another product again, I am sold on this one!
The best of multiple varieties, multiple brands
Over the years I've realized that Fresh Step was the best option for my cats. I used to get the multiple cat variety, and add in some baking soda. But with this one, I don't even need the baking soda. What a relief!
Smells great and conceals odor perfectly! My cats love it!
Fresh step Extreme
OMG this is the best cat liter I have ever used! We have a very large cat who drinks a ton of water..So needless to say he uses the box several times a day! Love the liter will not buy anything else!! Thanks so much....
I have tried other products, and have found that Fresh Step is the best! It is easy to scoop, and the odor control works great. I will never switch to another brand, even if some are cheaper. This is where the saying ... "you get what you pay for" is true!
Cats Love Extreme
I am so glad this product has come out. The cats are very happy. There is alot less dust ,which Ernie is greatful. He always sneezed with he got finished. My other cats give it paws up on this new product.
The order control is the best so far in your line. It has a fresh scent like a spring day. The scent is not over powering to the cats and parents. The clumping is better than the other litters in your line. Iam glad. I have 4 indoor cats. It is easier to scoop and discard. Thank you for offering it in the 42lbs special bag. I purchased that size because it lasts longer and is a great buy. I just wish there were more placs to buy it.
Thank you for your new EXTREME
I Have Nine Cats...Four Adults and Five Kittens...Love Fresh Step!! Wouldnt ever use any other product!!!
I bought this cat litter because I live in an apartment and I needed something to take the odor away. The scent of the litter is not very pleasant and it stinks up my entire apartment. Every time my cat comes out of his box he smells like the scent and it does not go away. The scent also stays on me and I can smell it still when I am away from the apartment. I have also noticed that my cat wheezed right after he used his litter box and he never has done this. I will not buy this one again and I do not recommend it, at least if you live in an apartment. I think the makers went a little overboard with the extreme part.
best litter for my cats
this litter is very good! It takes away odors fast. Its the best litter we have bought.
PACKAGING - NOT USER FRIENDLY
My cat and I love the product but we HATE the 42 lb bag instead of a bucket. There is nothing "easy to use" about it at all if you don't have a man in the house or borrow a neighbor. It doesn't even open wide enough to get a decent size scoop in the bag until it's easier to pick up. We vote to go back to the bucket.
the best i have found!
This is by far the very best cat litter out there...fresh step is the only brand I trust for odor control! My cats have never not went in their box in 6 yrs of using fresh step. Before I changed to fresh step my cats boxes would always stink no matter how clean or often I. Scooped. Also my 2 males cats had urinated in other places before the fresh step. So I'm happier because I dont smell it and they must be happier too since they do not mess anywhere anymore.
My sister works for a rescue. Over the christmas holiday she had 16 cats and kitten in her home with total of four litter boxes. Not one time going in her house did you smell cat's or kitten's. I got to see fresh step work many cats. My sister told me when adopted two kittens to make sure that I bought fresh step as she has an allergy to the amonia in urine real bad and with all them animals she has no problem with the urine she tells all her aboptees to get fresh step. she should get something for pushing your product like she does.
This cat litter is the BEST litter I have ever come across. I have one smelly kitty and we have tried many different litters claiming to be the best oder eliminating product..they failed in all areas!! This is certainly the best kitty litter. My house no longer smells of stinky kitty box, thank you fresh step! I recommended this to 3 others who say they will never go back to their previous litters
Very Good Litter
My only mine problem with Fresh Step Litter, Scoopable, Extreme, Mulit Cat, is Dust. I have to use a covered cat box unstairs and everytime my cats go in and start digging, they start sneezing and I can smell cat litter dust all over the house. I hope you can make a non or less dusty litter that can still scoop and clump.
I always buy 4 of the 34lb boxes because its such a great deal but nowdays the boxes inside are harder to get out without having to rip open the outer box to get to the innerboxes. Can we fix it so when you open the big box, the little box handles are where you can pull the little boxes out.
Ahhh - Mazing
I have 2 cats and the litter box is in the downstairs bathroom. I used to walk in to my house and be able to automatically smell what the cats had left for me, but with this litter, I can walk in and take a deep breath! I don't smell it at all!!! It is amazing!!
I love this product. No matter if my cats just used the litter box or not u can never smell it. And i love the fresh smell it puts on my cats. The only way i even know they used the litter box is when I clean it out everyday. I just wish I could get this in a much bigger size then 25 pounds.
Dreaded Cat Box
Product is great. The only problem is (however trivial it may seem) . . . ALL CARTONS ARE TOO HEAVY!!! What do people with BAD BACKS do? The Store help runs when they see what you're trying to get down.
This product has worked so well for my cats! I buy it every time and I never have any trouble with any of my cats refusing to use it! The smell protection does wonders with boy cats (whew, stinky!) as well! Have always loved using Fresh Step litter and will continue to do so for years to come!
Fresh Steps Extreme Odor Control Accepted & Loved By Our 7 Cats!
This is the only cat litter that all seven of our cats will use. I have a few picky senior cats who used to prefer the floor to any other cat litter. Since we've been using Fresh Steps Extreme Odor Control Scoop-able Clumping Cat Litter my floor is just a floor, not a cat box any more! My cats usually try to use the cat box as soon as I clean it and put in fresh litter.
very satisfied with this product
The liter does not creat a big dust cloud when I pour it in the box. It absorbs completely and
doesn't leave the bottom of the box muddy. The cats are quite happy with it too.
lovin this litter
We are in love with this litter! The fact that it still has amazing clumping ability along with a less dusty presence is my favorite aspect. While others in our home enjoy the stronger smell which it has but without it going to the perfumey level. And it's still a great value-priced product that comes from my trusted Fresh-Step brand.
I really like the other scents but this one smells like cheap perfume. I thought the smell was overpowering. I perfer the scent of the Multi-cat litter.
Bought this litter by mistake and it was a mistake. The odor control needs to be controlled. The litter stinks so bad (not from the cats) it gave me a headache. Horrible stuff! Washed the walls, ceiling, floor and everything in the bathroom to rid the smell of that litter.
My cats smell like that litter, and I assume they are ingesting it when they groom. Maybe that is why the one has been throwing up.
I am a fan of Fresh Step products but not this one. So if you or your cat(s) are sensitive to smell stay away from it.
This litter is the best that I have found! I have 4 cats and it encourages them all to use the same litter box. No other litter has been able to do so. I have been able to downsize the number of litter boxes in our home. Thank you!!!
Best litter ever
This litter is the best litter I have come across. I have tried every litter that there is on the market. This one is the best it has a fresh clean sent and my house does not even smell like I have any cats. Where as other cat litter brands the smell will last a day and then it smells again. I recommend this brand to every one that I know who has cats.
Odor control is great. No typical cat box scent, just fresh.
I have used Fresh Step for several years and it has always met my needs especially with 2 cats. They have never refused to use the litter box. I like the odor too. The large boxes are really a bargain even if it is challenging for me to lift them. Keep up the good work. I especially like the rewards program too.
I love this product because there is NO odor! You can walk by the litter box an not smell a thing! I left for a couple of days expecting to come home to an odor but it wasnt stinky. So impressed!
Best On Market!
3 Cats - the ONLY LITTER that I can come home and the house not stink!!!
Awful, awful perfume
Perfume overwhelms; smell of urine would be better
BEST BY FAR!
Best I've found yet, and I've tried them all. I guess the clumping could be a little better, but who cares!
Thank you. Now I don't just buy the top brand on sale. Worth the extra money.
The Ultimate Litter
This litter is wonderful for odor control and clumps very well. My cat seems very pleased with the product as well - she does not kick it out of the box as she has done with some inferior brands. The best feature is that no one can tell there is a cat box in the house.
The Best Litter I've used
I have 3 cats sharing a big litter box. This has been the best for clumping and controlling odor. Big difference from the other litters. I know the cats like it better, because I haven't found any surprises outside the box.
"EXTREME" SAYS IT ALL
Being low on funds, we have opted for the cheaper cat litter, but found Fresh Step was the only litter we could really afford when it came to having a clean smelling house.
Now, with this new line of litter, we can stretch out the days between a total litter box change which in a small part save us money in our pockets.
I poured EXTREME litter in our two cats' litter box (they share one that sits in the middle of our small one bed, one bath home). I scoop daily and noticed that there were no smells breaking through this chore until almost two weeks after I first placed the litter in the box. Now that's what I call cost savings! Now, if Fresh Step would just mail out a few more coupons.....
Although it does hide the oder it is much dustier than the others causing my cats not to want to dig or cover thier "gifts" So not real happy with it
i've been useing your products for years, this is the best for odor. it could be better for clumping but i know you will fix it. thank-you.
Not as Good as Before
As with all other products, you can improve them to a point where they are no longer as good as the original. I feel this is what has happened to this brand of litter. I am a faithful "Fresh Step" fan and will not use another brand, however, it is my opinion based on my experience with my four cats, that the formula prior to this new one was more effective on odor and clumping. With this being said, Fresh Step still blows away the competition!
My cat is a little militant when it comes to his cat litter, and adding another cat to the mix did not help I was using odor shield but changed to extreme when the new cat was added. The old grump has been less tyrannical about letting drink my first cup of coffee before I scoop his box thank goodness because nothing says good morning like a kitty hounding you at 5 am to come scoop his box. I have not noticed it not clumping as fast but I also do not use the normal 3 inches of litter either my cat prefers the box to be full. and as for it sticking to his feet we have the booda box with the attached stairs and I have not noticed more or less tracking since we switched just more sleep :D.
This product has a lot of dust.
I have 3 cats and tried this new extreme cat litter. My only complaint is when I pour the litter into the cat box I almost choke from the cloud of dust. Extreme isn't the only Fresh Step that does this. I wish there was someway they could get rid of the dust. Other than that, Fresh Step is my preferred brand and I really do like the Extreme Odor Control.
I simply cannot turn away a stray or feral cat. I have 13 cats and this is the ONLY brand of litter they will use. They absolutely HATE everything else (and I have tried a variety). Witness this by the fact that they will look straight at me and then proceed to "do their business" in FRONT of the litter box if it is another variety of litter. One cat will "inspect" each box after I change the litter to make sure it is Fresh Step. After a positive inspection, all the cats are happy - and so am I! Keep up the great work!!!!!
I love the odor control and clumping but my cat won't cover his business when he's done using the box.
I don't know if it's too much perfume or the dust that bothers him. He won't tell me.
Extreme odor control
Great odor control for my two calico cats. I thought that the "perfumy" smell was going to be too overwhelming for them at first, because it is very strong, but neither of them mind at all. My basement has zero cat litter smell, and the litter actually smells really good!
I'v had cats for 50 years and have used every type litter available to me. Fresh Step extreme
is by far the best I have ever used. Excellent clumping feature. No dust . Controls odor like
no other! My hats are off to your Lab Techs. You gave me a scale of 1-5 to rate you, however
I'm going to rate you a 10, based on 50 years of purchasing cat litter. Thank you Fresh Step.
From all of us cats @ Kitty Cat Hollow
Great litter, but...
My cats litter box is in my room that's why I chose the Extreme odor control. It actually smells nice but I've notice my cat has a lot of litter in her back paws. It seems to clump up and not dry quick enough. So it clumps in my cats paws and it's pretty painful for her to get it out (the same pain when you pick a booger and its stuck to your nose or nose hairs, IT HURTS!)
To be honest, this is the best cat litter I have bought in a while. I had to give my cat to my grandma because when I came to college last year, I couldn't have her at my apartment. Well, I was able to move to a different complex and I've gotten her back!! :D I've been experimenting with different litter brands and types because I wasn't exactly sure which would be best for her. Ever since she was little, she has had major gas problems and she smells awful! This brand has been able to mask her smell, which is a major accomplishment! Once again, this is the best litter that I've bought and I plan to continue buying it!
This product really destroys odors
Everyone that ever comes into our home does not believe
we have a cat ..The litter is cleaned constantly santino is very finicky
about being clean..This is my first cat but I do know cat smells can be bad ..
This product is the BEST! i really don't need extreme I just used it this one time ..
The crystals r so nice but he won't go in the litter .I guess it looks strange lol.
I am going out today to get what i usually use lavender scented or just plain all
FRESH STEP works ..thank you for the opportunity to voice his opinion and such a great product..
I usually buy the Multi Cat, but thought I'd try the Extreme when I saw it at Target. It's too perfumy! When I pet my cats, or they snuggle with me they smell like this! When I walk into the bathroom where their litter box is, everything in there smells like this, from the Kleenex to my toothbrush. Yuck. I will not buy this again.
Extreme Scoopable by Fresh Step is EXTREMELY impressive!
I have never had a litter work so well. I have always been a cat lover the only downside was that litterbox. I couldn't get rid of the smell without constantly cleaning it UNTIL I decided to try FreshStep Extreme clumping cat litter. I will never buy anything else. It controls smell and the 1 cat I had that had a problem using the box, now uses it. Sounds crazy. Good work from your company.
Works great for my Needs
By and Far the best litter we've found so far. The boys love it, It passes their test every week when we replace it. Even though my littler boxes are in small places (like the bathroom and a bedroom) I never have an issue.
Only downside is that it gets everywhere, even with a litter catcher mat for them to walk over I still have to sweep every day or every other day. But that's more of my kitty's fault than Fresh Step's. The clay also sticks really bad to the box-sides, so I find myself waiting to scoop until it's finished drying. Gotta invest in box liners!
Scented Litter = Bad Idea
This litter smells awful when it's dry, mix it with urine or feces and it only gets worse. My cat hated the scent of it more than I did, but thankfully she is a good kitty and always uses her box. After two days I couldn't take it anymore and back to the store I went to purchase what I normally get, the unscented multi-cat litter. I threw out over half the box of this litter, scrubbed her box clean of that awful scent and refilled it with unscented.
the best litter ever
The extreme cat litter has the most pleasant scent of all litters I have used before, I only use Fresh Step litter because I have 4 cat girls and two litter boxes and there is no smell whatsoever in the house.. Keep up the good work and congratulations for having come up with such an excellent product, it makes it easier on us cat lovers to know that there is no tale tell litter box smell.
Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control Litter
LOVE this product. All my cats use it and it really keeps the smell down for multi-cats.
This is the best litter I have ever used by far for controlling odors. It has a pleasant scent that lasts throughout multiple uses. It clumps well, however, when scooping, the clumps tend to break apart and leave tiny pieces that can't be sifted out. The litter covers the smell so well, however, that it doesn't matter that there are little pieces left behind.
Since Fresh Step came up with the new product Extreme Odor Control, I have been even more pleased. You've improved an already hard-working litter and made it more efficient. My cat automatically goes to the box as soon as I fill it. I've tried other brands in the past, but this is the one my cat and I love.
Gotta Spend a couple extra
Recently we Purchased another brand Big Mistake, it didnt help with odor the clumping wasnt the same. Needless to say im back to Fresh Step an wont be changing again. Found out the hard way that Fresh step Extreme with carbon needs to be put in the cat box. Our cat likes to dig alittle deeper an makes a bit of a mess but the mess is usually better when he has fresh step. highly recommendable costs a little more but works so much nicer.
This is one of the best smelling liters I have every used.My cats are happy and so am I.
Bravo Fresh Step
Big reduction in odor from older version. Does anyone else have issues with the pawpoints and lack of legibility of codes?
Love Fresh Step
Fresh Step is the only cat litter I use. Its so good I honestly forget I have a litter box in my house and I'm sure my cat appreciates that as well. Thanks Fresh Step.
No Pepe Le Pew with Fresh Step
This is the greatest litter. Being disabled it is hard for me to clean the litter box everyday like I used to - but with fresh step I never have an odor problem. Recently someone bought me a competitors brand (bless their heart they were trying to save me a few dollars) the cats and I both couldn't stand it - one use and we all could smell their box. This is the only litter I use and trust for odor control. Thanks Fresh Step for such a quality product. Karin, Nichee, Lacey and Munchkin
I heartily agree with the reviewers who do not like this product. It does a good job on cat odors but has an extremely unpleasant odor of its own. I actually emptied the box I had filled and threw the unused litter in the trash. I just couldn't tolerate the odor of the litter itself. Very chemical, medicine-like smell. Fresh Step is the best litter out there, but not this fragrance. I would be very upset if it were the only one available and would not buy the product were that the case.
Clumping Extreme Odor
Works purrfectly.Clumps every bit of urine.My cats love it. They have to smell the whole litter box before they use it to find the right spot.
best out there
This product is one of the best litters available. I live in a SMALL place with three cats. The smell is mostly not noticable.
i love it and so do my cats and if their happy i real happy. Also no one knows we have cats till they see them
Best thing ever
MY House loves it because ww don't smell anything anymore. My cat loves it because it always smells fresh and it lasts forever.
i have been using your litter for many years. my cats love it. the only reason i did not give five stars was because only half your point codes do not work.many were clearly marked but come back as invalid.
I have been using Fresh Step clumping litter for years have always loved it. Saw the new extreme odor control and thought I'd give it a try. LOVE it! It's now the only litter I use! It covers up the odor of urine and feces equally well. The urine clumps well, the balls do not fall apart when scooped, and best of all my cats love it as much as I do. Well done Fresh Step! I will continue to use your wonderful product in the foreseeable future.
If it were possible for my cats to write a review, they would thank you for this product. As it's been stated before from others posts its' great; but in my opinion, this litter is your best one to date! I have 5 cats, and I can tell you I have tried every possible type of litter in an attempt to control the smells that come from and around the litter boxes. I even went as far as to try a more natural way and used pine chips! Really! From a personal standpoint, it is refreshing to come home after a long days work and NOT be greeted with the stinch of a dirty box! Thank you to all those wonderful lab techs who finally came up with a product that really does what it says it will do! Kudos to you all!
The best cat litte we've ever used!!!
Our cat had the ability to stink up the entire house when he would defecate! It would travel down stairs, into the bedrooms, just everywhere! We bought the extreme odor litter and was so happy that we didn't have to smell our lil Max! We really can appreciate this litter for sure!
I have used Fresh Step litter for years. I have two cats and an enclosed litter box that is built into our laundry room cabinets. I usually purchase the Multi Cat Fresh Step litter and decided to try the new Extreme Odor Control becuase it was on sale. When I first put the litter in the box I did not notice a strong fragrant smell. After a week it seems the fragrance has gotten really strong. It smelled like a perfume bottle was dumped in the litter box. My cats don't seem to mind it so far but I can not stand the smell!
The EXTREME Fresh Step has a very strong odor that I find very unpleasant. It almost has a medicinal smell to it. I purchased the Fresh Step Multi-Cat to use to dilute the EXTREME until it’s all used up.
A few years ago, my family and I moved into a gated community where outdoor cats are not allowed. It was very important to us, since we would be in closer quarters with our former-outdoor-cats' bathroom than before, that we used a quality litter that was easy to clean and had strong odor control. Over the years, we have used several brands of litter trying to find that perfect combination. If it was priced right, it was bad quality. If it was of a decent quality, it was too expensive for how little it lasted. Needless to say, we and our cats were very disappointed. That is, until we started using Fresh Step :)
Fresh Step was the one brand we had yet to try, but it should have been the first. It's wonderful! The litter is small enough that it doesn't hurt our cats' feet; it has a fresh scent to it--even after it's been used several times; it clumps and scoops cleanly and easily; and lasts for a long time! My family, and my cats, are extremely satisfied. We will NEVER use another brand, ever again. We highly recommend this to all of our friends :D
above the rest
I have two indoor cats who refuse to keep the lid on the cat box , therefore the stink has a tendency to sneak out the the rest of the area around the box. (ewww)
I have tried several types of cat litter and this is, by far, the best. :) no more stink :)
finally cat litter that works!
I haven't always been a fan of Fresh Step but decided to give the new Extreme Odor Control a try. I am so glad I did! This is a great product for my 2 cats. I am a full mom and nurse and don't always scoop the litter everyday. This product seriously can make you forget about the litterbox. I couldn't be happier. I can't imagine changing to any other product. Thank you!
I have 4 adult male cats who are, as I affectionately refer to them, "pooping and peeing machines". I have three Stearlite underbed storage boxes as litter boxes and I go through litter more than toilet paper in my household. Trust me when I say THIS IS THE BEST CAT LITTER I HAVE EVER USED!!!!! Not only is there ZERO odor (never really has been as I scoop all 3 boxes twice a day), but the clumping is second to none (and all 4 LOVE to tinkle in the same identical spot!). This is simply the best smelling litter that has ever been created, clumps like no tomorrow and I will NEVER switch to anything else! I am willing to pay the higher price for this product!
I have 4 cats. I coupon a lot and tried getting the other litter that was on sale. They will not have it. I found they would use the bathroom somewhere around the house. So I finally figured it out that they would only use fresh step. I absolutely love the extreme odor. I love the fresh step cat liter period, it is so much fresher then the other litters and low dust. The extreme odor control is amazing. Even helps with the odor for the one that doesnt always cover up. My husband noticed the fresh scent and we both are very pleased with it. This is without a doubt the best fresh step choice if you have mulitiple cats. I love it and will never go back to any other brand.
FINALLY SOMETHING THAT WORKS!
My cat and I are in complete heaven now thanks to Fresh Step's "Extreme Odor Control". The odor control is supreme, and honestly nothing has worked better. I can only smell what she leaves in the litter box for a few seconds, then the smell is gone....FOREVER!!! I travel frequently for my job and live alone, so this product has not only saved me the nuisance of stinky litter, but the cost of having to replace linens when my cat feels I have not changed her box frequently enough. In fact, I have actually moved the litter box into my BEDROOM! THANK YOU FRESH STEP!
I have two Maine Coons cats (20lbs each) and a Calico have been using Fresh Step for about 20 years- The Extreme is the best product they have made to date!
I have three cats - two male, one female - and have tried every variety of Fresh Step scoopable litter for them. The Extreme Odor Control really works, particularly with the two stinky boys. I scoop multiple times a day but not because of odor. I have only one litter box for the three of them but if I use the Extreme Odor Control you wouldn't know I have three cats in a small apartment.
Less dust great odor control!
I use to rescue cats. The cats I have now have been with me for years and their ages range from 10 years old to 24 years old! Yes, my old lady kitty is 24 years old. I am and have to be very fussy about any products I use with my aging cats especially my old lady kitty. Dust from the clumping litter could be a disaster for her and the other cats! It is terrible for their lungs not to mention my lungs!. That is why I am so pleased with this even better Fresh Step cat litter--the EXTREME!! When you have 6 indooor cats you need a good litter and I have a few litter boxes that I keep filled with the Fresh Steps new EXTREME cat litter and am very happy with the results! It was suggested I try one of the new cat litters made from other materials because of my concerns regarding the dust but trying to get a old cat to change is not easy so since Fresh Step has done such a great job keeping the dust very low and the odor control great it has made my life and the life of my cats much easier and safer so thank you for developing such good products and making our lives simpler and happier!!
With 2 cats, it's hard to find a litter to get rid of the litterbox smell. This litter works! My older kids clean out the litter box and one of them even said, "Wow, this is the first time that the litter didn't stink when I cleaned it out!" Great product!
Works Like A Charm
I have two cats, a boy, Sugarbear, and a girl, Cameo. Sugarbear tends to have stinky poops, Since switching over to Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control Litter this problem is a thing of the past. I couldn't be any happier. Thanks Fresh Step!!
I live in a small apartment, with the littler box in the hallway closet. You cannot even tell there is a litter box in the hallway, which is exactly what I wanted. I would recommend this litter to anyone who wants to hide litter box smells!
This is by far the best litter out there. No joke. It smells wonderfully clean the second you pour it and even when you clean it. We have 3 indoor cats and I have hated having them the past 3 years because of the odor. Wondering what I was doing wrong. I clean 3 boxes around the house daily yet still my house smells when I walk in. Then I bought this after being really dissatisfied with Arm and Hammer over and over again because it never clumps urine enough to really clean. I payed a little more than I normally would but boy o boy what a change!! Never ever has the clumping ability let me down and never ever have I smelled cat when I get home. I have even brought in neighbors who I know would be honest and don't have cats to do a test smell of my house. It is amazing really. I will never switch to any other litter.If I can only get my male to stop playing with it I will be truly happy. LOL
Not for us...
I am very brand loyal and I love Fresh Step. I will choose Fresh Step over other products that are on the shelf, even when the other products are on sale at a lower price. But when I tried this product, I found that it just wasn't my cup of tea. The scent of the litter was just too perfumed. I was worried that it might turn my cat off to his box. Thankfully, he didn't seem to care, but I made sure I purchased the Unscented FreshStep during my next shopping trip. My kitty likes a clean box, so I make sure I clean his boxes every 2-3 days(he has 2 boxes to use), and I have NEVER had any issues with odor. In fact I have had people tell me that they wouldn't even know I had a cat because there has never been any odors of the litter box. Fresh Step is a great product, but this particular product just wasn't for me.
BEST WE'VE EVER USED
I have bought and used just about every litter out there and so far this is the only litter that takes care of the urine as well as the other. We were very disappointed with the crystals (another brand) but like I said we've tried them all
Used to use Arm and Hammer and hated it because the scent of the litter filled the whole apartment. One of my biggest pet peeves is the smell of litterbox, so I saw this one day and decided to give it a try. It works great, I never smell the litterbox throughout the apartment anymore. The only thing I dislike about it is the smell of the litter really sticks to my kitty for a while after he uses it, but at least its not a horrible scent.
It IS what it claims!
I have 5 cats in my home so the litter has a tough job to do and this product does it well and as it claims it will do. I am very happy. It does not smell like I have a house full of cats. Gotta love that!
THANK YOU for making Extreme Odor Control Fresh Step
I am SO happy with our Extreme Odor Control Fresh Step that I am convinced that I will not be buying any other brand of litter from now on. I have one older cat; a sweetheart and SHE loves it too. She sits my her litter box to let me know that she would like it cleaned out and she likes to watch. She is VERY happy with the smell and I am OVERLY pleased with NO cat odor in my house.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for making such a wonderful product.
Love this new cat litter. I have 2 indoor cats and you would never know because this litter really works. Thanks Fresh Step :)
2 happy cats
Plain and simple this stuff really works. I normally clean the litter box every morning, but even when I go days without cleaning it, I never smell anything.
Wonderful Stuff !!
I've had cats for over 35 years, often having multiples up to 5 at a time. This is by far the best product yet of all the brands at odor control and ease of use. My cats and I all love it !
The ONLY cat litter!
Ever since we first used Fresh Step we will no longer buy any other litter. We use to buy what was on sale or what we had coupons for. We have 3 cats, and I'm a single mom. Fresh step helps keep our house smelling so good, so weather it's on sale, or I don't have any coupons, Fresh Step Extreme is the only litter for us!!!
This Product is great
I really like that product.it made my life easier.
I never write reviews. But I just have to. I have two male cats, and one of my boys had a horrible habit of going outside of the box when I first got him. Nothing would work. Finally, I decided to switch litters. I bought fresh step, and went with EXTREME, because..two smelly boys. The extreme does the trick with the smell. But also, as long as I scoop daily, he consistently uses the litter box. I've never (crosses fingers) had a problem since switching to this brand. I'm a loyal customer now and would recommend the brand to anyone. Clumps great, keeps the smell away perfectly, and my boys always use their boxes.
Fresh Step, don't change!!!
Dear Fresh Step,
I love Fresh Step scoopable litter. Or rather my cats do. There is nothing better than using Fresh Step, whether it be original or multicat but do NOT change the scent to EXTREME. The smell lingers in the air and even my cats do not like the smell of the litter. The entire purpose is to NOT smell the cat litter, and with the EXTREME odor control, the scent of the litter itself will not go away. It is a very unpleasant smell and it lingers.
EXTREME ODER CONTROL IS EXTREMELY GREAT!
I have got to say that I think this litter is excellent! My cat has issues with going outside of her box occasionally, but with this litter she will consistently use her box as long as I keep it cleaned out. I will start using this type all the time. Oh, and the code inside the box is actually legible! Fresh step is the best brand!
They Love it!!
I have two kitties, actually13 year old cats, and I have people over all the time who ask do your cats have a litter box? I just love this litter. You can't ever tell when my cats use their litter box due the
"extreme" odor control! Thank you for making this wonderful product. I will continue using it forever!!
I LOVE this litter! We have used Fresh Step for years, and with 5 cats I am always looking for MORE odor control. I saw this litter at WalMart and bought it. The smell is pleasant, and it clumps like nobodies business! This is THE BEST cat litter out there and now I won't buy anything else!
I love your product & receive compliments from visitors that they can't smell a litter box in my home. I have a small house, 8 cats, & 3 litter boxes.
The only problem is the amount of dust that comes off the litter, whether I'm refilling the boxes or just cleaning them out. Is there anything you or I can do?
Good Bye Other Brands
My cat started to not use the litter box. Then I changed his litter and it was love at first sight. No more accidents and it gets rid of odors instantly.
Kitty's only brand
This is the only brand of litter my cat will accept. When her vet wanted her to use something else after she way spayed, she refused...turned up her nose and pawed through the box.
The first scent of the litter is the last scent you smell when you are cleaning out the litter box!! Works really good!!
I usually don't take the time to write a review. This Fresh Step product is Fantastic!!!!!!!!!! We have two cats. when the kitty litter was used just once, the male cat would not use the litter but the floor or my tub. I decided to try Fresh Step. There is NO smell. and my cat always use the litter. Thank you for making this product. I will always buy Fresh Step with carbon. It's the only litter for my cats.
Thank you, Fresh Step!
This is the best litter you will ever buy! I was about ready to give up on controlling the odor from the cats, but then I discovered the Extreme litter. The best. You don't have to change it as often, the cats love it, and you made my life easier! Thank you.
Extreme Odor Control
The scent of this litter is over powering. I couldn't stand the smell even before the cats used it. I will stick to the multi-cat clumping litter.
I've have purchased many cat liters from expensive to inexpensive. This is the best for the price and may possibly be even better than the expensive brand I have tried. Keep making a great product and I will continue to buy.
THE BEST CAT LITTER BY FAR!!!! I HAVE TRIED MANY AND THIS IS THE BEST ONE YET. WHEN PEOPLE COME OVER THEY ARE SHOCKED TO FIND OUT I HAVE 4 CATS IN MY HOME...I ONLY WISH IS THAT IT WAS EASIER TO FIND. I AM ONLY ABLE TO FIND THE EXTREME ODOR CONTROL LITTER AT TARGET STORES, WHICH MEANS I NEED TO DRIVE A DISTANCE ( BUT CONSIDERING THE PRODUCT IT IS WELL WORTH THE TRIP)
I have had cats before and I used pine chips or crystals for litter. It was nice b/c it didn't create any dust and it was easy to clean. However, with my most recent cats, when I used that same product, it didn't work. It was fine for when they did number 1 but when they did number 2 it did nothing for the smell. In addition, both my cats have been fighting number 2 issues such as runny number 2/soft number 2, so you can imagine the joys of dealing with that. I needed to find something that could cover up the stench & help clean up. A vet had recommend Fresh Step & another product. I was leery of using clumping litter b/c it can create such a mess with litter getting all over and of course the dust. However, despite my reservations, I purchased this product & I'm glad I did. This litter is amazing! I can't smell anything now. It's great! I have two cats, so there's a lot of business going on in that litter box. Despite having to clean it out at least twice a day, the smell control is still strong even after a week or more of not completely changing it out. I definitely recommend using this litter. The dust factor isn't as bad as some others & is only when you are pouring it out. When I scoop, I never have any problem with dust. I only gave 4 out of 5 for the clumping b/c sometimes the clumping falls apart when I'm scooping. Also, I've noticed that it tends to stick to the sides or bottom of the litter box, so that is a mess to clean & deal with. If the product could be a bit more absorbing that, in my mind, might help solve that problem. My cats have no problems with it at all. They seem very happy with it. Hope this helps!
Not too dusty, and there is no odor period. Even when I'm in the room where the litter box is (our laundry room). I loved Fresh Step anyway before this product, now I won't go to anything else. I wanted litter that wouldn't affect the cleanliness of my family's clothes while we washed and dried them, at the same time I was worried about the smell affecting our laundry. This litter has abolished my fears, 'nuff said. I recently tested out the new "Natural" litter, hated it, and now am running back to this one. All hail "Extreme Odor Control"!
We've tried quite a few different scoopable litters and this one is by far the best out there! Have 2 cats and the house always smelled like litterbox but since using this product we haven't smelled a thing! HIGHLY recommend this product!!!
This is simply the best ever!
This formula of litter is the best by far. It smell awesome and removes all traces of odor, even with two cats. Thank you!
Extreme litter is the best
I rescue cats, and have at this time ten cats that I am getting ready to adopt out. I only use Extreme odor fresh step. You cannot tell that I have this many cats in my home. Friends and people that come to adopt say all the time. "I cannot smell the litter box." Ten thumbs up for the extreme odor control. I will never use any other litter. I also have a question. When ;putting in the codes for my paw points, there are many that I cannot read. I have a total of almost 500 points that I cannot put in correctly. they are impossible to figure out what they are. I would really like to use all of my paw points. With this many kitties that need a good home I need all the money saving ways possible. Any help would be great. My kittens and adult cats say thank-you.
I love this cat litter! I actually have to remember to go scoop the cat boxes. That was never an issue before, the nose told you!!! I used to scoop twice a day to make sure noone ever smelled the litter pans. I have actually forgotten to scoop because there is no odor to remind me!!!!!!!! It's fantastic!
I've used Fresh Step scoopable litter for nearly 20 years & the Extreme Odor Control is a GREAT addition to their line of products. The scent is fresh & clean smelling, and it stays that way after use. The even better part for me, though, is that it creates less "dust" when pouring & scooping. I'm a huge fan.
Love this litter, it works great on odors and clumps great. Wonderful product!
The LITTER stinks! Literally!
I read a few of the reviews, and I am obviously not the only one who feels this way. I can only assume this litter also comes in an unscented version, which would account for the high marks. It is GREAT clumping, and GREAT at controlling the urine and feces odor (which is a tremendous challenge, since my older male has Inflammatory Bowel Disease), and the cats seem to have no problem with it. But the litter itself has such a potent, sickish sweet smell I have to wear a mask when I scoop it. Even if I hold my breath, if I accidentally open my mouth I pick up that smell on my tongue! Does it come in an unscented version? The only indication of ANY ingredient I could find on the packaging was "CarbonPLUS", which I assume to mean it contains carbon. Doesn't even say it is clay based. Frankly, I'd rather smell the feces!
I use this litter to line the bottom of my litter box for a kidney failure cat. The odor is disgustingly sweet and makes me sick to my stomach. My cats have also decided they prefer pooping out of the box after a while. It does an excellent job at keeping the odor from the feces and the urine, but I buy litter that is not perfumed and had I known this litter was perfumed I wouldn't have wasted my money on it.
Also the clumping- it's fantastic if you clean the box out right after your cat urinates and I literally mean going to the box and cleaning it after your cat steps out. I work and so can't clean it until I get home and find that the clumps crumble when i attempt to pick them up.
Once thing I do like about the product is that unlike some of the others I have tried, even when soaked with urine the product does not get stuck to my scoop. It will always fall off into the bag, but it also never stays in a large clump and breaks up easily when scooping with plastic or metal scoops.
I will go back to multi cat unscented , it took care of the odor fine and the clumps didn't break apart when I shifted through the crystals and get down to the bottom of the box.
Smells Like Expired Men's Cologne
This litter has an overwhelming smell of expired men's cologne. I am very disappointed in the smell of the product and my cat won't even get near it. We won't be buying this type again.
Too strong smelling
My cat refused to use this litter therfore I can't rate the clumping. The only odor I had was where she decided to use as her "new" litter box. PLEASE DO NOT change the scent to the regular clumping littter, or I'm going to have even bigger problems. Fresh Step in the only product I've used for years.
Best litter I have ever used! I can't even tell I have cats.
By far the best litter!
I am very impressed by this litter, I have 2 cats in a one bedroom apartment so the smell of their "business" isn't hard to come by. When I heard of this litter i gave it a try and immediately the smell was gone. I love the price and the results. Keep it up!
I used Tidy Cat for years then I decided to try Fresh Step, it was the best decision I have made in a long time!!! Wouldn't change it for the the world, THANK YOU FRESH STEP!!!
So Far The Best!
I have 2 cats and this is by far the best litter that I have used and I have tried almost all available at Walmart and Target, it really prevents smells and my cats seem to be more attracted to it. I have a male cat who seemed to just scrape the box and missed the actual litter but when I started using this products he burries his business completely making cleaning easier. I love it so far and will continue to use it!
This product is great. Have two cats and you would never know it
This product is great. Have two cats and you would never know it
Fresh Step Extreme
I love Fresh Step litter! Decided to try this even though I was happy with regular Fresh Step. My only concern was it having a scent to it. There are certain litters my kitty wouldn't use because the scent was too strong but I had no more than just poured it in his pan when my kitty used it. So no problema!! Excellent odor control and clumping power. Since it clumps so well the litter lasts alot longer than others. Fresh Step forever in my house!
Best Cat Litter
I just love the odor control and when my little girl (my cat) uses it the freshness seems to always be there in every step. By far the best cat litter I've ever used. So thankful I found it!
I have tried other litters before and always ran back to Fresh Step as fast as I could! But this new Extreme is even more awesome! Way to go!
Can't Stand The Smell - Going Back To Multi-Cat Formula
I just can't stand the way that this litter smells in the box. YUCK! I am going back to Fresh Steps's Multi-Cat formula. Other than the smell of the litter itself, it works as promised. My husband isn't bothered by the smell, so it is just me that doesn't like it.
try other litter brands and keep comming back........
Fresh Step® Extreme Odor Control Litter
This product, by far, exceeds ALL cat litters!
We have 4 kitties, and there is never any smell from Fresh Step® Extreme Odor Control Litter! And I mean NEVER any odor!
It is fantastic at keeping away odors away, and the cats love, love, love it, and believe me...WE love it also!!!!!
We would Definitively, recommend this litter to anyone who doesn't want cat litter box odors in their homes!!! :)
I am so pleased with this product, we have 5 cats and I notice a big difference if Iuse another version of Fresh Step, which is the only product I will use.
My family went from the clay litter to the scoopable litter recently and this was the first product we tried. Oh my what a difference. With three cats, this stuff is amazing. Not only did it clum well, there really was no bad odors. I would highly recommend, escpecially with multiple cats.
We Love It!
The litter smells fresh when I pour it in! My girls wrestle to see who gets in the litter box first!
STRONG Smell & TOO Dusty
I have 4 cats and have used Fresh Step Products for years. This one has been the WORST. Too Strong of Scent. ( To people and cats ). My cats refused to use it. Nasty after smell on the cats and on you after taking care of the litter boxes. Please go back to your unscenetd great products. Cats can't tell the difference about lavender, floral, etc. I will not be buying this.
Wow what a great litter! super extreme litter is so awesome. it makes me cry.
My 15 year old cleans the litter boxes. Needless to say she doesn't always do the best that she can. But this new cat litter is awesome. No smells coming from the litter box at all.
MY CATS DID NOT CARE FOR IT. THE SMELL AFTER THEY USE IT WAS VERY BAD.
Best product yet!
I have 4 adult cats of my own and 6 kittens I am fostering. I have been using Fresh Step for years. I have to say the Fresh Step Extreme is the best by far when in come to odor control. My only issue with Fresh Step is that they continue to use the bags for the 45 lb containers. It is not easy for me to pick up hold and try to pour into a litter box. I have to get my son to pour it into an old Fresh Step bucket so I can use it. I wish Fresh Step would go back to using the buckets.
My cat and i hate it
It was to much like a purfume and my cat wouldn't use it waste of money!!!!
you can wait for about a couple days and you'll be just fine.i clean the cat litter box everyday and when i use this product it lasts about 3...sometimes 4 depending.
GREATEST LITTER EVER!!!!
I was not a cat person due to the smell. I now am the proud owner of three female cats. NEVER not once did anyone ever say that my home smelled of cats. People didn't even know I had cats. When told that I had three I was asked what kind of litter I used. I proudly told them FRESH STEP EXTREME ODOR CONTROL. My cats love there boxes and so do I.
This has to be the greatest litter ever. I would not change for a million dollars. I would have a hundred cats so long as I have FRESH STEP.
Yes this litter did control the order and the cats-both of them-didn't have any negative opinions of the litter. But for this human the scent was overwhelmingly unpleasant and over-powering. I doubt that any feces or urine order could get past the smell of the scent added to this product. It was extreme order control, the extreme being the scent added to the product.
Not only did my cats' fur continually smell of the scent which reminded me of cheap perfume but any soft surface absorbed the odor. I now have blankets that the cats sleep on that reek of this litter's scent and just noticed that my bedspread smells the same. While these surfaces can be washed to remove the scent what a hassle.
The clumping was only average and I found that clumps when scooped often shattered into small impossible to completely scoop bits. With all that said while I may have had a problem the cats didn't seem to mind. I know that it is more important that the cats be happy with the litter but we are trying to reach a happy medium and are trying the unscented multi-cat.
2 cats clean smell
I have used this product for ever, they come out with better and better stuff just when you think the one your using is the best.A friends child wanted a kitten the parents said no, the child asked why? whent he answerd it was I'm not comming home to a stinky house, (cat urine smell) I said to them I have 2 cats that is indoors, now have you every smelt the litter box? well no! thats because I use Fresh step and I clean the box every 3 days when my cats go potty they scrath the littler and you can smell the clean smell of the littler or by the one that has no odor, and clean the box.
keeps the basement smells tolerable
I've been using FreshStep as long as we've had our two cats and it was recommended to me by friend who said that this was one product that actually works. To this, I agree. My cats are well trained and they continue to find their way. Now, if they didn't push the tiny pieces out of the box....that would be a miracle!
I have used alot of litter with 13 cats, and also tried bargain brands because of expense. Not anymore !! I will go the extra expense to keep this no. 1 in our house. Thank-you and please don't change a thing.
Very Nice 2nd Choice
I really like this newer product. My cats seems to take to it just fine as well. I usually use the odor shield with carbon but this is a great second choice.
I found it a little dustier and stronger smelling when i first pour it but overall very happy with this product.
Althought I have cats and I love them all, I really don't want to smell them, i have tried expensive self cleaning litter boxes (which scares them batty), all sorts of litter and deodorizer, but this has them all beat! I have a finicky cat that doesn't like the feel of litter between her toes and also will not use the box if she isn't the first one in there, with fresh step extreme, i only have to scoop once a day and the finicky cat will go in there even if she isn't first ITS AMAZING. So I too will never change brands again!
Most effective litter I have found!
This is definitely the most effective litter I have found so far. I have two cats, and two litter boxes, and my house doesn't smell like cat! When you walk past the litter box, you don't smell the nasty odor. You just smell freshness!!!
Couldn't Stand the Smell
I changed the litter box and within the first hour, dumped it and the unused litter in the box in the trash. The smell of the litter made me sick. Reminded me of a commercial cleaner/spray intensified. Went back to the regular Multi Cat unscented.
Count me in!
I too am one who never writes reviews, but Fresh Step Extreme has definitely changed my mind! I have tried many, many clumping litters and thought I liked a few until I tried Extreme. NOTHING else comes close! It is amazing the difference this litter has made. I will NOT be changing brands again!
This stuff is truely the best litter i have ever put in the cats box! i will never buy anything else...Seriously ! Even when its time to clean the box out you cant smell a thing just the amazing scent of the extreme liter doing its job... if you want a clean smelling liter box this is the way to go!!
amazing litter thanks for being a life saver
This litter is amazing my two cats love it and I love the odor control
Best cat litter for smelly cat!
I have never written a review but this cat litter really works!! I have a small kitten who manages to make the worst smell in the litter box. We tried other cat litters but the odor could be smelled all over the house. I poured Fresh Step extreme in his litter box and now no matter how much he uses the litter box when I am at work during the day, when I get home, we can't smell anything. This is one product that really works and works extremely well. It out does all other cat litters if you have a smelly cat.
I am also one who doesn't write reviews.....but since this cat litter is so great I had to. It smells great and keeps the scent for a week. I also have a total of 6 cats and they all love this litter. I go thru alot. A bigger size like 50 lbs would be great for me. I have tried them all that includes the one from the livestock and farm animals store. There I can get one container and it will lasts for a week. The EXTREME beats them all!!!! Thanks for a great litter!!! :o)
Like it the best out of all Fresh Step choices
Like it the best for our multiple cat household out of all of Fresh step choices. It has a good, not over powering, scent and seems to help with odor the best. The only problem we noticed is that it is a little dusty compared to the other fresh step brands. But as far as odor control for multiple cats, its great!
many cats , too many litterboxes. This litter makes it easy to keep the smell down. No stinky litter boxes, and even when ive scooped and scooped I don't have to dump the boxes as often or scrub them out as often. Wonderful stuff!
Odor control great but... Achoo!
For buyers, extreme odor control should not mean 'extreme scent', but with this product, it does. Bought our first couple of boxes two months ago and initially it seemed fine. During the past month, however, we began noticing problems.
While it does control litter box odors, it is so highly scented and dusty we've started reacting to it. Our cats reek of the scent and their coats look and feel dull (until we bathe them) even though they are brushed daily. One cat started peeing outside her litter box. We constantly battle a thin layer of scented dust on our household surfaces, furnishings, even houseplants.
Since we prefer that our house smell of 'fresh air' rather than perfumed litter, we won't be buying this one again. Can Fresh Step come up with a truly 'odor-controlling', 'scent-free', 'dust-free' cat litter that is packaged in easy-to-lift containers?
This is the best cat littler I've ever used. I always worry about the litter smell when I have company over, but this puts my mind at ease!
Love this product
Just bought Fresh Step Extreme this week. Great product. Noticed the difference already. It controls litter box odors great. Thanks.
I use alot of different litters and this exceeds most!
I only use this litter now. It's even better than the multi-cat scoopable. I have 4 adult cats and needed to scoop at least once every day. But with EXTREME, I can do it every other day and there is NO SMELL. It's great.
I live in a little apt and I have 2 great cats....but at first I wasn't sure what litter to use I just knew I wanted it to work. I tried many different litters and the best one was Fresh Step EXTREME! I can't smell any thing in my apt and everyone is so shocked that I have 2 cats cause they can't smell the litter odors. One of my friends was thinking about getting a cat too but she was scared that the odor would stop her but once I told her about Fresh Step and how good it works she changed her mind and got one :) I would NEVER EVER get a different litter just because I know this one works and my cats love it too. I hope this Review helped out!
4 Cats Love Fresh Step !
I have four cats ,and I know you all know the little box is a task when using clay litter ! We tried fresh step EXTREME ,and I promise I will never go back to using just plain old litter . But the best thing about Fresh step is ,its affordable and its THE BEST...Nuff said, I would recommend fresh step to anyone who has cats !
Best out there!
We have 10 indoor cats so I am sure you can understand that litter is THE most important thing I buy every week. I am a SUPER neat freak so having 10 cats can be a challenge with the smell. It can be embarrasing enough sometimes that there are 10 cats in my house nevermind if it SMELLED like there were 10 cats in my house, I absolutely will not have that. I have tried every litter out there that I could find from organic, to cheap, arm and hammer, clumping, non clumping, corn, wheat. Fresh step is about mid-range for price as some of the organic cat litters are much more expensive. I would love to use the litters made out of corn (i think fresh step has one of those now too) and if I had one or two cats it would be amazing as it does work pretty well, and is healthier, but with 10 of them it just doesn't control the scent enough and it sticks to the pan which makes my life impossible. Out of all the cat litters I have tried (including arm and hammer which was the one my vet suggested) Fresh Step beats them all HANDS DOWN. Every time I see a new litter and try it I immediately end up going back to fresh step. The Product just can't be beat. My ONLY complaint is that I wish it was less dusty as one of my cat's has allergies and I can't imagine its helping him (that why I tried corn litters but as I said they just didn't do the job for so many cats!) Now I am only left wishing that fresh step made an odor control powder that I could sprinkle on between full out litter changes. Thanks for making a great product!
best liter but pet point problem
I have an exceptionally stinky cat and every other type of multi cat liter i tried just didn't work fresh step exstreme did work however i was thrilled the only problem is when i get the extreme i get the same pet point code every time i have 6 useless codes now worth 50 points each thats 300 points i'm out : ( i guess my kitty won't be getting his new toys any time soon
I only use Fresh Step brand clumping litter. I picked up a box of the Extreme version and personally found the smell of the actual litter (scent) to be overwhelming and not in a good way. The litter itself performs fantastically, as usual, I just do not care for this scent at all. I normally buy either the Multiple cat or scented scoopable and those scents are fine. I just bought a box of the Multiple cat unscented so I can mix it with the Extreme and take it down a knotch.
better than just plain cat litter
I have used a lot of cat litter until I tried fresh step,We have 10 cats,4 inside and 6 outside,this is the best I have ever tried.
Love my fresh step as do my cats.
I walked in to my friends house one day and could smell a nice fresh smell. When I asked her what air freshener or cleaner she just used, she responded none. We went through a laundry list of things the scent could be and it was none of those mentioned. I went to her bathroom and discovered the fragrant, clean smell. You would never believe me unless you were there. It was the cat liter (fresh step). I LOVE FRESH STEP I would buy it and set it out in a vase even if I didn't have a cat. It is a Wonderful, Fresh, Clean Scent.
I have a few cats and people have commented on how they would not know I had cats if they had not seen them. I love Fresh Step and it is the only brand I use. I can't wait till they get Lavender in my area I will buy it.
Worth the extra $$
We have 3 cats in a 3 bdrm apt. My daughter maintains one of the boxes and I maintain the other. The other is in my bedroom, so odor control is of utmost concern to me. Recently, our LitterMaid automatic litter box stopped working. I've been scooping it every day, but with Fresh Step EXTREME, I don't even notice it's there anymore.
I <3 Fresh Step Extreme!
As a veterinary assistant, I spend a lot of time thinking and talking about cat litter (as silly as it feels to say that). However, after hand raising my own first two kittens from a week old, I realized what a challenge it can be to find litter that truly serves its purpose, and that is cat-friendly. Although I do find this litter to be very dusty, it clumps great, scoops well, and smells very nice. I never have any trouble with litter box odor anymore. I don't buy anything else. The last time I went to buy litter, Target was out, so I drove to Petsmart to get it. Its just nothing else will do!
Left for the weekend and the litter box did not have an odor upon return home
Wow, I was really impressed with this litter. I normally buy the Fresh Step Multi-Cat (Scoopable), but purchased this to try since it was on sale. We tried it out recently when we went out of town and would not be around to clean the litter box daily. Upon our arrival home, yes it needed to be scooped, but it was nice not to smell a nasty odor when we walked in the door.
I love this litter! I live in a tiny apartment and the litter box is right inside the front door so it doesn't take much for you to be able to smell the litter box. This litter works so well I don't smell it when I walk in the apartment, and sometimes I even forget to clean it because I can't smell it! The clumping is great and my cat wasn't the least bit fazed when I switched her littler to a different brand!
Love this product!!!!!
This litter clumps so well!! The smell lasts and lasts. I have many cats and I certainly know good litter. Fresh Step is my favorite. It is their favorite, too.
I normally do not write reviews, but this stuff is the best!!! I have a very smelly cat and I have tried all different 'odor eliminating' litters, nothing compares.
This product is incredible. I live in a tiny apartment, but I can't smell the litter box at all! I purchased it at Petsmart, under their recommendation (the manager swore by it), and I am completely satisfied. Scoops easily, traps the odors, and lasts a long time. I scoop the box each day, add an extra bit of litter if needed, and changed it all after about 2 1/2-3 weeks. The name brand cat litter I used previously had me changing it out at least once a week. Definite money saver.
Great Odor Cover Up!!!
One of my cats has a probem of not covering up after himself (lol) and this is the best liter that I have used!! WAY TO GO GUYS!! Thank you so much for coming out with this one!!
The packaging is a waste!!
I just bought the extreme cat litter in the 34lb package. And I paid good money for cardboard!. Not only is there an outside cardboard box, but tow more cardboard packages inside. I have 4 cats and 2 litter boxes, and I used the entire both packages on the litter boxes, where I normally get several refils from litter in the pail. NOt happy about wasting money!
Excellent odor control
This product was on sale at the petstore and decided to try it. I have read other reviews and was a bit worry that my cats would not like it. At first I mix 1 part of Extreme with 2 parts of the regular Fresh Step with carbon. The cats were smelling around but did not reject the litter. Then I mixed it 1 for 1 and the cats did not even notice. When I tried it without mixing, my female cat was a bit apprehensive, but did her business as usual. We are all very happy with the odor control. Awesome!
Great Product, Sneezing Cat!?
I bought this since I have to keep my cat's litterbox in my closet (due to my living situation). I thought it smelled great and it did a fantastic job at masking the odor in my small living space. My cat on the other hand, always came out of her box sneezing (which she has never done before with other Fresh Step litters). Overall, it's a good product, just not for my cat's nose.
I was extremely impressed with this Extreme Odor Control Litter by Freshstep!!! This litter has served several purposes for our family and pets! The cats like it, it keeps odors at bay, it easy to clean up, not overly dusty and it appeals to the cats so that they stay attracted to their designated potty areas and out of no-no zones, such as indoor spots and the neighbors potted plants or garden beds!
My husband and I adopted a good sized feral community plus have our own indoor cats and dogs!. Because we are in a residential area, we really have to take caution when caring for, feeding and cleaning for the feral cats. We have an enclosed area for the feral's so they have somewhere to go in increment weather and also to house the cats safely when they are recovering from illness, spay and neuter. It is really important that the enclosure stays clean, sanitary and free of odor. We have tried several , and I do mean SEVERAL, brands and types of litters but none of them were as impressive with odor control as this product from Fresh Step!
It truly is a feat to find a litter that meets our needs as well as appeals to the outdoor cats yet remains a safe product to use. Many outdoor cats do not take to certain styles of litter because they are used to , even prefer, going outdoors in places they can dig and scrape. We spent so much trying different deterrents to appease our neighbors and keep the feral's from going in potted plants and garden beds but none of them achieved what this litter did. The cats enjoy being able to dig and scrape this type of litter so it has helped to keep them going in their area and out of the going in areas we don't want them to with the added bonus of odor control. If the day is crazy and I can't get to clean up on time, I worry far less when we are using this litter.
We had thought of hanging the charcoal odor bags from the local hardware store, but now we don't have to and this litter helped us avoid an extra care expense of our little colony.
Also, Fresh Step Extreme Odor litter is used in our home, where we really need to keep odors at bay. Our litter spot is in the laundry room and I always worry if powder detergents or clothing will absorb odors so I find myself over cleaning the area- but with this product, life is just easier.
I highly recommend Fresh Step - especially if you have multiple indoor or outdoor pets.
One of the biggest bonuses to our family is that Fresh Step has a points program and many times offers coupons - so a product that works, that lets us earn rewards and offers consumers coupons to save a few bucks - how can you top that?!?
Not happy with it
Yes, it smells good to humans, but the smell is very strong, as if "Carpet Fresh" had been added to it. Since a cat's sense of smell is so much better than ours, I'm surprised that they used it, but they are good cats. Our senior cat has very sensitive skin, & as soon as I switched to the Extreme litter, she began scratching & pulling out her hair as she had done with other brands of litter. I have switched back to Multi-Cat formula & everyone is happy again.
Fantastic odor control
I usually do not rate products, but this litter works so well I felt I had to. We have 12 cats and odor control is naturally one of the most important factors in choosing the litter we use. We have always used Fresh Step and have been satisfied, and we are more so now that this Fresh Step Extreme has been made available. I would recommend this to anyone with multiple cats.
I don't usually get all excited about cat litter, but this stuff is amazing! Please sell Fresh Step Extreme forever, because I don't want to use another cat litter ever again.
Absolutely love Extreme Odor Control
My cat's litterbox is located in my laundry room, so it is very important to me that it not smell. I must say that Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control is without a doubt the BEST cat litter I've EVER tried. My cat is almost 10 years old, so I've tried many, many brands of cat litter over the years. None compare to Fresh Step Extreme! We both love it!
I been having so many issues when it comes to litter, I own 4 cats and I finally feel like I found the litter that is perfect for them I have tried so many brands and none of them EVER EVER ! controlled the smell like this one, Thanks so much Fresh Step for making the Extreme control litter I guess the name says it all, I thought it wasn't going to work since many litter brands use the same description but this time you guys made it happen, 4 cats and i have only 1 litter box that I clean twice a day, you can't smell bad odors at all, even when is low, the Lavender smell makes it great too ! my kitty's love it, Do not dare to get rid of this product since now you have a lifetime customer, Again thanks so much ! I get to clean once a day now thanks to you guys :)
I have tried a lot of litter but this one is amazing, most litters you have to clean right away, after each cat has used it but this one you cant smell at all. i don't feel the need to clean it till bed time everyday
The Fresh step doesn't seem to work well with my automatic litterbox. It clumps well, and masks odor well, but always seems to stop the machine from automatically scooping.
NEVER WILL BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN
I purchased the extreme order control and the scent was sooooooo strong my cat would not get in litter box for twp days.I through he was sick remember i had purchased different litter so dumped it and sorry to say purchased another brand he is doing great not.When I dumped it it burnt my nose so I can image what it felt like in his mouth when he cleaned his paws.I have been using Fresh Step for 18 -20 years and it worked so why did you change it ?
Not as Dust-Free as Before
I have used Fresh Step for years. I switched from other brands (even when they were on sale) because it had much less dust than the others. I still like almost everything about Fresh Step, but it no longer 99% dust-free. What happened??? I'm about to start looking for a brand that really IS almost dust-free.
love fresh step exreme, extremely fresh
With four rescued kitties freshness is important to us; we fo9und this product very effective and the cats are happy too, our tabby, our marmalade monster and our mama rescue now spayed and her son!
This product has a nasty odor. the smell to this product is so over powering that it makes you sick or gives headaches. not just to myself but a few friends and family can't go in the same room with it. I always have used fresh step but this one is not good. I will just have to go back to the original fresh step.
Couldn't be better
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! If you are looking for a good kitty litter, you can stop looking. My husband and I live in a small camper trailer with our cat Liddybell. We tried a couple other brands but this was perfect. The smell stayed fresh, it clumped to perfection, it's easy to scoop, and Liddy loves it. She spends lots of time in there just enjoying kicking it around in her box. So would I recommend this brand? ABSOLUTELY!!!
the best of the best
one word. AWESOME!!!!!! Don't wast your money on any of the other brands out in the stores. I did it. nothing comes even close. the cat love it ,there is NO SMELL to the cat box. even after the cat go's number 2. clean up is easy .clumps up nice.
This litter is great. We recently took in a stray kitten. With this unplanned addition, we've had to figure out the logistics of where to put the litter box so our dogs won't eat the poo, but our kitten would be able to access it whenever she needed to go. Unfortunately, we don't have a basement, so we had to put the litter box in the guest bathroom. I don't want my guest bathroom smelling like a barnyard, and when I reached out to my friends on facebook asking for suggestions on litter, this received rave reviews. Now after using it for a week, I can honestly say, I am very happy with its performance.
I'm not one that usually takes the time to write a review. New products also just go unnoticed by me as they have nothing that stands out about them. This new product changed that! The first time I poured in litter box, I noticed a very clean smell to the litter itself. I figured that would change real quick with two large adult cats( one is notably STINKY in the litter box area..lol). When I scooped/cleaned out litter box the next day( and trust me, my cats fill a litter box in one day!), I didn't smell ANYof the usual nasty odors! NONE!! It was crazy!! I even let the box go for two days just to test it. Still NO odors! This product deserves some reconition, hence why I decided to actually write a review for once. No joke, no gimmicks. This product is the best cat litter out there!! I know, I have tried them all!
Works great but it always leaves my bathroom smelling bad :/
Five cat household
We have five cats in our household and the control we have over the litter box odor has been excellent with the extreme litter. We only have one large box, which is scooped many times a day but on occasion we have purposely neglected the box to assess the effectiveness of extreme and odor is still controlled. This has been a wonderful product that has allowed us and our cats to live happily on one house; I only wish that the litter was a flushable product.
Nothing bets this litter
I buy nothing but Fresh Step and when they came out with the Extreme cat litter I first got it as a joke cause my favorite comedian Jim Gaffigan made a joke saying how everything now days is extreme but it reall works. Ive got 2 kittys AmI and Ichigo they are litter mates love them to death but not thier smelly poo and as they went from being kittens to adults it didnt get any better. With the other Fresh Steps if I to long without cleanning the box I can smell every thing and with 2 of them it builds up fast with the Extreme I dont have to worry about smelling it at all. Best litter Ive ever have and will use. Enjoy the pics of my boy and if you are wounder where I got the name I got them from Ami James from Miami Ink and Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach.
Cat? You have a cat?
No matter who walks into our house they always tell me that it does not smell like we have a cat. I tell them it does not have to smell if you use Fresh Step! I have had cats for years and I always used Fresh Step. Never did I have a cat smell. My husband wanted a cat and I really did not want anymore animals. I had gone thru that with my daughter years ago. Her dad gave her whatever she wanted. She was a great child and now is a great mother. We always had cats. At one time we had 8 cats. We had two and then a stray wonderd by and of course dad said yes. She wound up being pregnant! After my husband passed away and my cats passed away, I said to myself no more animals. I remarried and my new husband wanted a cat. Well we have Zo a wonderful kitty. He just turned 4. You would never know we had him. Sometimes we have to ask each other if the cat littler box was emptied! That's how great it is. I always tell my friends or whoever use Fresh Step you won't know you have a littler box in the house. Thank you Fresh Step!
smell is gone
i have 4 furry friends,and other litters left our small abode smelling like the local cat shelter.i didnt want my furry friends[and non furrys too] rememberning their past.Freshstep has solved that problem for all of us! Thanks Freshstep. gmh2cats
All Fresh Step products are good. Best of all for my 7 cats is the Extreme. I swear by Fresh Step and only wish that there were more coupons for your products. I recommend Fresh Step to all my cat lover's. To my surprise they also use it. Thanks for such a wonderful product. Life is easier for me and my 7 " little children".
The Best Cat Litter Ever
Tidy Cats is good but more expensive. I believe Fresh Step works as well as, or maybe better, than Tidy Cats and is less expensive. I've tried all the brand names and a few generics including Pet's Mart generic, Exquisicat. I usually buy generic unless I have a coupon for the brand name. As long as I can afford it, I am buying Fresh Step Extreme from now on.
it controled my cats oder it just need to contol its oder
it worked rather well in that it was easy to change, but when i poured the litter it made me stink for the rest of the nite! i have to say that was my only problem with this litter.
BY FAR, THE BEST!!!!
I REALLY DIDN'T THINK FRESH STEP COULD TOP THEMSELVES. I MEAN, THEY'VE HAD THE BEST CAT LITTER FOR DECADES. BUT THE FRESH STEP EXTREME IS POSITIVELY OUTSTANDING. JAKE AND I BOTH AGREE IT'S THE BEST PRODUCT, EVER!
I got this at Target and my kids love this!!!! Ihad problems with them not going in their huts. But now they use them. I have 3 huts for them. And my house is oder free!!!!!
Have tried all THIS IS THE BEST
I have tried many of the expensive litters - some work for the first time, but when you purchase it again it is not the same. I have tried double duty and it only worked for a little bit. I change the litter daily, but it is what stays in the litter box container that becomes the problem. This stuff takes care of the bacteria that would normally contaminate the litter box itself and it really works well. So well that you cannot tell there is a litter box in the room you walk in. It may be more expensive, but if they keep up with the same product and don't change it - it is well worth it. SInce you no longer will have to buy extra stuff to get rid of the smell !!!! It will actually be cheaper. No more perfumy smells in my home.
This product has excellent odor control
My male persian cat who is very picky about everything, will only use the litter box if it has Fresh Step in it. We've tried less expensive brands and we both can the difference and he will not use the litter box.
Best litter yet!
I saw this at Petsmart and decided I would give it a try, and it was the best decision yet! I have to keep my cat box in my room and normally a small odor could be smelled. However, I had a friend come over the other day asking where my cat box was because they couldn't smell anything. I was so happy! It does have a very strong fragrance, but I do not mind it whatsoever it might bother others with respiratory issues though. My cat doesn't seem bothered by it either. I love how it controls the smell, I don't think I will ever use another cat litter besides this one!
The Best Yet!!
I tried this when it was on sale at my local pet store, and this was the best I tried yet. I decided to stick with this litter, this works great when you have a lot of cats.
Top of the line
This is by far the best litter i have ever purchased my cat loves it and it keeps the odor out.
Takes the owner's breath away
Same reliable Fresh Step quality but the fragrance is EXTREME for humans & felines....overshot !!
This is the BEST!
All my kitties stay indoors and I worried about the smelly cat boxes til I tried this new Extreme Odor Control and what a difference! Compared to the store brand this is the BEST! I'm on my way to get more and so glad I tried this!
OMG the Fragrance!!
I *LOVE* the Multi cat formula. I have been using the clumping litter from Fresh step for many years. I thought, Extreme Formula....that sounds even better. I opened the box and it took my breath away and not in a good way. I thought maybe I would get used to the smell after a couple of days. No luck. My cats are even starting to smell like the litter. I do think this controls the normal odor from a litter box, but I gave it only a poor rating for odor control because there is another odor that is unpleasant coming from the litter box now. This is especially bad if you have asthma or other breathing issues. I just wanted to warn other people. I did not do any research before I purchased the new formula. I wish I had.
This is truly the best odor control I have ever gotten from a cat litter. Because of the layout of my house, my litter box is directly behind the front door, but this litter prevents odor so completely that I never smell the litter box! I love it. My cats love it too- I have one cat who is very sensitive to odor and will use places other than the litter box if her box is dirty and this litter has prevented that from occurring completely. By the way, I too have migraines and this litter has not affected me negatively so before you run away from it based on the other review, please give it a try, you will be glad you did!
I am so happy!!!
I tried every litter on the shelf. I had tried Fresh Step before and ventured away to see if any product was better. Boy was I wrong. We have two cats in our family and they really needed something that would cover the odor. I LOVE the extreme odor control by Fresh Step!!!
BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CAT LITTER.. I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING ELSE AS LONG AS I LIVE!.. I GOT MY KITTY A FEW MONTHS AGO I'VE NEVER IN MY LIFE HAD A CAT SO ALL THIS LITTER BUSINESS WAS NEW TO ME.. I TRIED ABOUT 3 OR 4 LITTERS BEFORE I TRIED THE FRESH STEP EXTREME ODOR CONTROL AND LET ME TELL YOU NOTHING COMPARES!! I WAS HOPING TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WOULD COVER THE ODOR BECAUSE NOTHING WAS WORKING I WAS SOOO DIGUSTED BY THE LITTER BOX SMELL AND I WAS GOING NUTS BECAUSE MY ENTIRE HOUSE SMELLED SOOO BAD!! I WAS ABOUT TO GIVE UP THINKING WELL THIS IS JUST HOW IT MUST BE I HAVE TO LIVE WITH THIS ODOR FOREVER.. BUT THEN I CAME ACROSS FRESH STEP EXTREME ODOR CONTROL AND DECIDED WHAT THE HECK LET ME GIVE IT A TRY.. AND BOY I'M SURE GLAD I DID!! MY HOUSE NEVER SMELLS AND I SOMETIMES I HAVE TO REMIND MYSELF TO CHANGE THE LITTER JUST BECAUSE IT NEVER GETS A BAD SMELL !! AFTER MY CAT USES THE LITTER HE HAS THIS FRESH SMELL ON HIM IT'S WONDERFUL!! DEFINITELY WORTH THE PRICE AND MY CAT LOVES IT AND I LOVE IT!! THANKS FRESH STEP YOU SAVED MY LIFE!
Not for those prone to migraines!
I don't normally write reviews, but wow! the new Fresh Step Extreme and Scented litters are sooo overpowering. I get migraines from various smells and strong fragrances (perfume, onions, leaves in a bonfire, etc.) Our 4 cats didn't even get a chance to try it out because the Extreme scent was so extreme that I had to throw it out. Now it seems as if our Krogers and PetSmarts are only carrying the Scented litters. It's a shame because I've only used Fresh Step for years and have recommended it to others often. Maybe I should stockpile the regular stuff if I can find it... but please, Fresh Step people, continue to make unscented litter available. It's the best on the market.
This litter is great!
It really gets rid of the oder from my cat going to the bathroom.
Fresh Step is the Best
I have tried soooo many other brands of Cat Litter and Fresh Step has won my vote. I have 5 indoor cats and 3 kitty boxes. It so Nice to walk in the house and not smell the box as soon as you step in the door. We keep the box clean. The other brands you know as soon as you walk in there is a cat box. But with Fresh Step you dont and its soooo nice.
Thank you so much for coming up with such a great cat litter.
Great product / faulty packaging
The product itself is great ... great odor control. However, I have purchased 2 25-lb. boxes of this litter and both boxes have broken. Upon opening both boxes (according to instructions), when I lift the box up by the handle, the entire box lid rips off the top, spilling litter all over. I'm sorry to say that I will not continue purchasing this product due to the poor quality of packaging.
With several cats in our house it was always smelly and embarrassing.... Once we tried the Extreme we were amazed as to how well it controlled the odor! We have tried ALL brands... this one controls odor as well as clumps well, enabling us to go longer between replacing the litter. A friend mentioned how she couldn't believe we even had indoor cats, given how great our house smelled..... THAT won us over = )
Absolutely love this proud
I have to cats, one male and one female. Ive tried and tried to find a liter that will help with their constant bathroom break. It controls odor like nothing I have gotten befofre and my cat's absolutely love it. It makes it for a easy clean up since it clump perfectly. Ugh Im just iiratated with none of the dotres i ship at NEVER have it.
Only buying Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control from now on!!
After trying Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control I will not buy anything else. I thought my 'other' litter was okay but not anymore. This is a great product! It is easier to scoop and the litter smells fresh all the time.
I have tried many of the products out there. I have 4 lovely little darlings all from the same litter. Now 3 years old. This is the first product I used that actually is able to keep the odors to a minimum. The better thing is that it uses far less product than A&H which was what I have been using for a few years. I am very pleased with it's performance and will not buy anything but this in the future. Thanks Fresh Step for curing my odor and cost problem!!!
Wendy and I love it!
I bought Wendy a new litter box, one with a cover along with this Fresh Step litter. I'm happy with how I don't smell anything, and she's happy with her new "private bathroom" as she calls it. Clumps really well too!
hate, Hate, HATE the "New" Scented Litters
What have you done to the litter? I LOVED all of the Fresh Step products and have been a loyal Fresh Step user for years. I have 4 cats and have found Fresh Step to be the best product on the market. Unfortunately the scented versions of the Fresh Step litter has changed and now the fragrance is overpowering, and to my nose, unpleasant.. I still use Fresh Step but now it has become an adventure to try to locate the unscented versions. For some unknown reason many retail locations are only carrying the new scented version (and no longer get my money). Hopefully Fresh Step will continue to offer the unscented version. I would hate to have find a new product to use.
GREAT 4 My Little Ones
This product has been a blessing since I have two cats. I never had to worry about my 2 yr old cat ever forgetting to cover up her business, but my new addition usually has a difficult time remembering to do so. This litter has helped alot. He usually can stink up the place in a matter of seconds but the odor control has been GREAT! It has great clumping and my cats just love not having to smell one another after each others usage of the litter box
We have tried several and my daughter even did a science project comparing diferent kinds. This truely covers the smell and lasts longer than other litter. Of course thisbrings down the cost too! One suggestion is to make the paw point codes clearer so you can actually redeem them.
Was using the multi cat formula previously, then decided to try the EXTREME. Yes, it is a bit dusty, but you can't smell the feces or urine! Wish it sold in the bigger box, but still a good deal!
VET TECH APPROVED!
I am a veterinary technician with 6 cats, and I have used several litters, and now I am SOLD this litter is FANTASTIC, my previous favorite was arm and hammer, and this litter tops it for odor, and clumping by 10 folds, hope it sells in 40lbs boxes soon!
At first I went with an Unscented Brand (I watched this show and it said it was better for cats, BIG MISTAKE), the smell was horrible. So I quickly switched to competitor's brand that said it was good for covering the Urine and Feces smell. It just wasn't strong enough and I ended up buying 2 other products for odor control.
My mom finally bought this for me and the CarbonPlus plays a major factor in covering the smell. Yes, the smell of the little is strong and dusty, BUT it does the trick. You smell that instead of the awful odors from your cat. If you're still thinking about it, look at it this way, would like you your house to smell like feces? Or nothing at all than some fragrance you like? Because you only smell the carbon when you go clean it up or when your cat is using the box. It also clumps really well and my cat really doesn't care either way as long he as has a place to go to the bathroom.
So if you're still looking for something, this is it.
Just like all the others now
I chose this product because it was the only type found that was F.S. I assumed it would be great because I love the Original F.S. clumping formula. The reason I choose F.S. is because it didn't smell like all the other litters out there, and now it does. It smells awful, and the cloud of dust that is kicked up every time you scoop is gag worthy, not to mention even after a shower you can still smell it... and your cats will smell like it to. PLEASE go back to the original- this one is a fail. Now I have to figure out what kind of litter I'm going to switich to :(
We have used many different kinds of cat litter over the years
We have come to the conclusion that Fresh Step is the best of the bunch, in terms of odor control, clumping, and lack of tracking outside of the liter-box! Your new 'Extreme odor contro' product does just what you say it will! For those of us with more than 1 cat in the house, it really makes a difference! Thank you!
Worst litter they have made, stinks
I tried the new "extreme" product. My cats avoid it, and when they do use it, they smell of it. It STINKS, is irritating to the nose and throat, smell stays on clothes and in the environment. Too bad they sold out to the "Extreme" marketing hype. Fresh Step NATURAL is their best product.
I love this cat litter. I have two cats and sometimes we have to be gone for a couple of days and I can't always clean it daily but this litter does the job by keeping the odors down. My cats have never had an accident outside the litterbox. They are pretty picky about the litter but they really like this litter so I am sticking to this brand. Thanks!
Can't smell a thing!
This product is amazing! I found a poor kitten outside and we decided to keep him. At first I could not find a good litter to keep the smell down. Deciding to try another brand, we went with Fresh Step and to my [and my cat-reluctant boyfriends] relief, we cant smell the litterbox at all! Now he's a cat lover too! Thank you so much Fresh Step!!!
Great Product if you could buy it....
Started using "Extreme" Loved the odor control! They promoted this product about a month ago with $1 off coupons, tried 3 boxes, but now I can't find it anywhere....Don't know if they make it anymore! Walmart in 3 locations I was at yesterday didn't have it.
I just recently adopted 2 kittens, After 2 months of my entire house smelling like cat waste (I cleaning it several times a day), I attempted one more type of litter before finding them new homes. I purchased the frest step extreme odor control and it has been a life saver!!! My house or the bathroom where the litter box stays doesn't smell at all. I never write reviews but absolutely had to one this one!! No dust at all and smells amazing!! I can now keep my kitties :D This is a must buy for all cat owners!
We love Fresh Step Extreme and our kitties does too! It smells really good and everytime our kitties use it, they smells good too! ;)
I HAVE BEEN USING FRESH STEP NOW FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND THE EXTREME FORMULA IS THE BEST. I HAVE SEVEN CATS THAT HAVE THE FELINE LUEKEMIA AND THEY REQUIRE TO STAY INSIDE FOR HEALTH REASONS AND I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS NEW PRODUCT IS THE BEST SO FAR ON ODORS.
I don't like the dust or consistency...will see how the cats like it.
I don't like the dust....I may come back and try to rate higher if it controls odor and last longer than expected...
Khloe's litter box is in a very small 5' wide x 7 ' long room in the back of our home that is my office. this was the only space to put her litter box (which is covered) and i had tried every type of litter possible! i always clean immedietly, have air fresheners, and anything else but could still smell it. this litter was the only one that competely absorbed the smell and Khloe seemed cool with it too. This litter is the best!
Great in all ways but dust
This product line is FABULOUS... unfortunately the dust is more than the standard Multicat and order shield version. My cats love the odor control and the odor was definitely controlled. I was just unable to handle the dust. My poor babies were sneezing. If the dust was gone it would be a 6 out of 5!
The extreme formula is A+. Covers strong smells like no other. With other formulas, our cat used to get picky if the box wasn't cleaned right away. Now if we're away all day she still uses the box until we get home! Company is amazed that they can't tell a cat is here until they see her. Great stuff!
I love it!
I have several cats because I do cat rescues and fresh step is all I will buy. I love the new extreme odor control and the way it smells and the clumping action it has. My cat boxes stay very clean because it clumps so well. I am always telling people about how much I like fresh step and why. Yes it cost a little more but in the long run it saves me money.
In LOVE with EXTREME
yes it is a bit more expensive, but i buying less because it lasts longer. We got two kittens from the farm down the road, I used a regular kitty litter, but after a few hours my catbox and the bathroom stunk! and my little ones stopped using it! I got Extreme, the kittens love it! One 20lb box lasts well over three weeks! even bent over scooping i only smell the litter!! I've had friends convert already after being in my bathroom and not knowing there was cat box in the room!
My cat is very stinky and I tried several different types of fresh step litter until I stumbled upon extreme odor control. It keeps all odors away and Im okay with the scent that clings to my cat, it makes him smell nice and fresh, it's truly a great product
Best EVER !!!
Between my mom and myself, we have 12 cats in our household. We found and used this litter almost by accident. When we went back to get more we were unable to find it for a while. We were disappointed but continued using other formulas of Fresh Step and when we find this formula we buy all that is on the shelf. It is the best cat litter formula we've found and believe me, we've tried them all!!! Thank you!!!
I have always used fresh step since it is the best litter ever. But this last time I picked up the Extreme Odor Control and I have a new favorite. It works amazingly!! I never smell the box at all and even when I scoop out it stirs up a fresh smell each time.
The scent sticks to my cat!
The product does its job. Perhaps too much, the scent is so strong it sticks to my cat after she is finished and I have to smell it when she is sitting near me. I also have noticed that she smells it too because she kept licking her paws trying to remove the strong scent of the litter.
Will not buy this type of FreshStep again.
I have been a Fresh Step user for many years. I previously enjoyed the Lavender Valley product but as this new product became available I can no longer find it. I started using the Extreme and find it extremely dusty and extremely strong in it's perfume odor. As far as odor control, before no one knew i had a litterbox, now it can be smelled through out the house. I would not recommend it at all. Still searching for the best alternative product for my needs.
I have two cats, one with special needs, so I am constantly trying out the different types of litters to try to cut down on the dust, neutralize the odors, and basically make it a bit easier on me to keep my special girl healthy. I prefer Fresh Step's crystals, but cleaning the urine out of the box was becoming difficult so I decided (as I live in a tiny studio apartment) to try out the Extreme Odor Control. It worked well to clump quickly and does bring down the odor; however, it is still dusty and has a scent that my girl finds unpleasant while my boy has no problems whatsoever and actually seems to prefer it.
I have 4 cats in my home and controling the odor is top priority! This new Extreme is wonderful! I love the pleasent smell, reminds me of a man's fragrance. I have always used the Multi Cat Clumping and it worked great, but just when I thought it couldn't get any better, Extreme hit the market! I have tried all the others out there and there is just NO comparison. Fresh Step beats them all!
Bad Fresh Step Extreme
My husband and I live in a 5th-wheel with five cats. We have been using Fresh Step for many years. When we saw the the Fresh Step Extreme we bought it. The dust it leaves is terrible. You can smell and taste it in the air if the cats have just been in the covered litter box or my husband and I are cleaning it. It has driven our sinuses nuts. We have more trouble with stuffed sinuses since we have tried the Fresh Step Extreme. We will never buy the Fresh Step Extreme again. We have never had this problem with any other Fresh Step Litter.
Oh my goodness!!!!
I have used another brand of cat littler since I have ever owned cats (15+yrs). I noted a sale on your Extreme odor control at Target and they didnt have a large enough size of my regular brand so I gave your product a try. I can not believe how well it takes care of the odors! Not only does it control odors, it is WONDERFUL to scoop out the litter box and have the same refreshing clean smell as if I had just added it to the litter box. The price is also comparable to my old brand. You have a new customer! Thank you for such a great product that provides what is advertised! L. Fontenot
I have two very stinky cats. I have use your products for years but finally tried this one and I LOVE IT. I dont smell the litter box any more. The scent of the litter isnt bad either. THANK YOU for making a product that actually keeps my house smelling good. My in-laws were over and they could even tell a difference in the litter smell.
High Hopes Squandered
Although I would give this litter another try in the future, my high hopes for Fresh step Extreme odor control litter were dashed when I first poured it into the boxes. The litter was dustier than I had expected, and the clumping capability was not instantaneous. I have two male cats, and the smell can be very unattractive at times. I would like to see a litter in the future that truly neutalizes urine odor, clumps thouroughly and quickly, and is not dusty. Overall, an average litter. Unfortunately though, I would not recommend it to a friend.
Way TOO STRONG SMELL
I have 3 cats and am a loyal fresh step user. But extreme is way too extreme, my cats were even offended by it. They used it but ran away refusing to cover their business up, so i had to constantly go and either scoop or cover for them. Please don't change all your products to this horrible scent. I won't buy it again, staying with the regular formula.
Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control Litter
Having 3 cats and 2 litterboxes, anyone can see why I get the type litter that controls extreme odor. Now it did do a good job of that. What I did not like about this litter is it seems to have too high clay content in it since it stuck to the bottom of the pans. I had more trouble scratching it from the very bottom of the pan than I thought I should have.Other than that I give it a high rating. I am not just complaining to you about this.I was so impressed with this litter I phoned the company and told them what I thought.You know what they told me? I should keep at least 3 inches of litter in the pans at all times.I did that, yet still had this problem.Fresh step you need to remove a bit of clay and I'd say you have got a perfect product!
4 Cats Give Extreme 16 Paws Up!!
I finally found the extreme litter and it is THE BEST!
Odor control is beyond anything I have tried before, and the clumping saves me from having to dump the box every 2 weeks. All four kitties in my family say "THIS IS A 16 PAW VOTE"!!
I was thrilled when I first saw this product on the store shelf. I love Fresh Step cat litter as a whole but I found the Extreme just that....too extreme. I had no qualms with how well it clumped as it works just as well as any other type of Fresh Step. But the odor control aspect was not satisfactory. The odor masking scent was just too strong to the point it made me nauseous and the cat's fur reeked of it. I eventually went back to regular Fresh Step Natural cat litter and things are back to normal. Try to tone down the scent of the odor control and I might give it another try.
The absolute best there is!!!!
We have three cats in our home and I have tried all brands of cat litter. I have always liked Fresh Step better than all the others, but this new version is the absolute best there is. Anyone having problems with stinky box odor should give it a try...you will never use anything else!!!!
The best !!!
This is far the best cat litter I have ever used for my cats. The odor has completely gone away. When you walk into my house after vacation it dose not even smell like I own a cat. This stuff is the greatest invention...
Don't like the fragrance
I've happily used your scoopable litter box filler since it first hit the stores. I never had a problem with odors. Now you have replaced it with "Extreme; Premium Scoopable; Odor Control with Carbon Plus." It now smells like the cheap smell of a public restroom. Each morning when my cat jumps on my bed to wake me up, I can smell that unpleasant fragrance on her paws. Please continue to offer "unscented".
WE LOVE FRESH STEP EXTREME!!!
I have 7 cats and 2 dogs and I find that the Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control works the best with the amount of cats that I have. I don't consider myself a hoarder...Just a cat LOVER and my cats love the litter and my family and I REALLY LOVE the litter as we don't smell the boxes when we enter the house and a few of my friends have said that if it weren't for seeing the cats, they wouldn't know that I had any. I LOVE FRESH STEP and will continue to buy it for years and years to come!!
SUPERIOR odor control!
This litter is amazing as far as odor control goes. I forgot I even had a litter box to clean. I have 2 cats and normally clean it every day or every other day. I changed out my usual brand of litter to Fresh Step on a Monday. Friday I realized........OH NO! I forgot to clean the litter box! My poor kitties. Amazingly even after all that time with 2 cats there was no odor! I was like WHAT!? Even while scooping out the clumps....virtually no oder what so ever. I've never experienced anything like that and I have been a cat owner for over 15 years. The clumping is excellent as well. Way better than Tidy Cat. The only negative thing is the dust. This litter is rather dusty. It puts off a bit of a cloud when you clean it out. Other than that.....the positives definitely out weigh the negative dust. I can live with it!
perfume fragrance too strong
I had to cut this with unscented in order to eliminate the heavy fragrance. Even my cat smelled like it and the house smelled like it. Way too strong for those with sensitive noses.
My cats love it!!!
Best littler ever we are a 4 cat family and box has to be share in our bathroom.Cats love we love it...
This product really works! It keeps the smell in. Our cats love it! and its really easy to clean!
I don't smell a thing with this litter! My cats litter box has to stay in my bedroom and when I have people over they never even notice! I love love love Fresh Steps!
Dust and doesn't clump well
I have two female kittens and it does great with odor when they actually cover it up. But its extremely dusty and doesn't clump well. I always have to wash the bottom of the litter because it seeps right through most days. I wish Fresh Step would actually make a organic litter with the extreme odor effects. I feel that they purposly run out of there because its too strong of an odor and smell for them. If anyone can recommend something better please do.
We have 3 cats and there is never a problem keeping a clean box with this litter. They love it and so do we!
Too much powder!
Extreme has too much powder that goes into the air when I scoop it. I have to wear a face mask to clean the box b/c it makes me sneeze and I can't breath with all of that powder in the air. It also makes my cats and rabbits smell like litter! I'm a very big consumer of Fresh Step litter, but I do not like Extreme at all.
The product works great! Easy to scoop in between litter changes.
We have 8 cats, and we rely on Fresh Step. Here as of lately we are unable to find Unscented litter and have found the extreme to be the mildest of all. The problem is there is way to much dust.. so much so it fills the house after a good cleaning of the box. It definitely works though when it comes to clumping and as far as cat odor. If it wasn't for the dust I would score it 100% all across the board.
Awesome new smell!!!
This new Extreme odor control is awesome....it does just what it says, extreme odor control!! The litter has a very nice new smell...it is scented different than the other litter.......I just love it!! I have 10 cats and this stuff does the trick! I have bought 2 34 pound boxes so far and I will continue to use it, you also get double points right now if you use it!!
I totally love the new EXTREME litter as well as the Multiple Cats formula........the stronger the scent the better in my house. We are fosters for a local rescue group and currently have 16 cats/kittens. I have tried ALL of the other brands and NOTHING comes close to FRESH STEP period!
Dusty & Strong Smelling
I have always used Freshstep so I thought i would give this a try. When i poured it in the litter box it looked like a dust storm and the smell is way to strong. I will stick with the Multiple cat Freshstep.
The smell is off putting. It controls ALL the cat litter odor, but I am not sure the strong, ' burnt ' (?) product smell is a worth it. Many of the other Fresh Step products work just as well as this one, without the bad litter smell. After changing my cat box, my whole house smells like this cat liter. Its a very pungent smell and it lingers every time my cat uses it. I don't think I will buy this Extreme Fresh Step again, but I will be purchasing others from there line!! They really the best!
the product is easy to clean and it does not smell.
I love this cat litter and so do my two house cats! Its like they don't even have a litter box. There is no kitty smell. I love you Fresh Step!
I have 3 cats and no one can tell I have 3 cats. This litter is the best one Fresh Step has come out with. I am a 100% supporter of Fresh Step and I refuse to use any other kind of litter. I've tried them all and I kept coming back to Fresh Step! GREAT PRODUCT!!
Extreme...ly Good product
I love Fresh Step, but, with two cats, odor is a challenge. We use 3 cat boxes, as recommended by pet experts. Am seeing an immediate difference in odor control with Extreme. Thanks for developing this new product. I also like the scent in the litter itself.
Love this pruduct
I love this pruduct it works wonders keep up the good work let me know about any other new pruducts.
Don't like the smell...
I love Fresh Step and I will not switch from the multi-cat clumping litter that I always buy from Fresh Step. I tried the new extreme odor control and I do not like the scent of it. When I scoop, it smells like sour milk to me. The Multi-Cat is great and does not smell bad at all when I scoop it. I don't know if anyone else has had this reaction to it but I will stick to the Fresh Step Multi-Cat scoopable litter.
The product is too strong
I will not buy it again, the perfume smell is way too strong!!!
Extreme is right
Maybe I got a strong box, but the scent was so strong, I had to cut it with unscented litter before they would use it. It was just too much.
Best Cat Litter Ever!
I've used other types of Fresh Step clumpiing litter and they have all worked well, but this is by far the best one yet. The Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control litter does everything it says and more. I don't have to worry about a strong smell in the air after my two cats use the litter. I love this product. I bought it from PetSmart in a 42lb bag. I just wish I can get some coupons to use for the litter when I purchase it from PetSmart.
I was always pleased with how Fresh Step performed, but this is TRULY AMAZING performance!
I am extremely impressed by this new litter. It is nearly on par with WBCL.
THE BEST YET!!!!
I am so happy that they came out with this!! My only complaint is that I wish there would be a 45lb bag of the odor extreme. I have a PetSafe Simply Clean Continuous-Clean Litter Box and when I use the odor extreme litter it works perfectly together. I am so happy with it but really wish it were in the larger bags because for the most part I like to buy in bulk.
This product is wonderful
Out of all the litter I have used, this is definitely my favorite. My cat's also love this littler. I back this "Extreme Odor Control" product all the way!!! Thank you Fresh Step!
Hack, Gasp, Cough, Wheeze...
I am so brand loyal to the odor control of Fresh Step that of course I tried the Extreme version when I saw it at the store. And yes, it does control odors from my cat's bodily functions. But oh my word, the DUST! It rises up in a cloud and then I smell like litter for the rest of the day. I try not to change the box if I'm not wearing a T-shirt because I pull it over my nose like a bandanna. That does not, however, prevent the problem that I smell the litter's scent every time I turn my head and catch a whiff of my hair. Will stick with this brand but not this version!
Best odor control I've ever used
I am so, so, so happy with this product!!!! I have 2 cats and usually I have to change their box every week, but this stuff is the great. There isn't any odor from their litterbox anymore. I purchased the extreme odor control litter on accident, but I am so glad that I did. Thank you so much. Everyone in the house is so much happier now that the nasty odors are gone. :)
Love, love, love it!!!
I have used Fresh Step products for years, but this Extreme is the best yet!!! No more odor when you scoop. No litter box smell. I can't say enough about how much I love this and will pray they keep it around for a long time to come. I recommend this product to anyone who has a cat or cats.
The Best Cat Litter Ever!
We have 6 cats in our home, and no one knows it, since this litter works so well. I have always found Fresh Step Litters to be better than the rest, and Extreme is even better.
This is the best litter I have used to date- and I've owned indoor cats for forty years, so I know what I'm talking about!
I have never seen anything like it! I never knew a litterbox could smell so clean and totally not embarassing :)
i've been suing this brand fro years love it)))
I love this brand and have been using it for years. With money being tight you can extend this product well after the 30days if you get my meaning...i know it sounds gross but i can get some mielage out of this product. The extreme brand works well but i wish it was so "perfumed" it just seems a bit strong and then when i hugg my cats i have 3 of them i can smell it on them..just a hint but enough ,, so if this company can work on that it would be fantastic! I love the Paw points and i have been using them well on my favorite magazines! 5 stars all the way for me! this product helps save me money right now! I've tried others and they just dont hold up as well!
ODOR TOO OVER POWERING. Smells terrible Will never buy again..
Works great like fresh step does! The smell of the litter is a little strong but its better than smelling the other factor of what you are scooping up! Works great and definitely covers the smell of everything. My cats use it the same so obliviously they don't mind it.
Best litter I've used yet
I have only one cat with 2 litter boxes. There were times with other litter that the smell was so bad you'd have to clean it right after he finished using it. I got the extreme litter and find that it does kill the odor immediately. Now not only is my cat happy but so am I. I also have had the problem of a code telling me it's already been used. It just happened to me this weekend. I emailed the company and hope to hear from them soon. I had a problem with my very first one that you couldn't read and they were really good about replacing the code.
Extreme Odor Control Litter
I loved it! I have tried other brands and other variations of fresh step but this is absolutely the best. Not to mention my kitten loves it too. He ran to his litter box as soon as he saw me pouring it in.
Seems to be duster than older product when poured. I also do not like the new packaging. I can not recycle the plastic bag. the plastic bag is also heavier to lift, and the plastic strap ends up ripping.
Extreme,this product works really well,works perfect!
You have to buy this
I had trouble with other types of kitty litter. I just purchased this 2 weeks ago and now you can not even tell I have a cat! I love Fresh Step Extreme Order Control Kitty litter!
This new Extreme litter already smells like it has been used before it even comes out of the box (seriously!).....my cats, who have never had any issues using a litter box, started pooping in strange areas of the house right after I filled their box with this new formula. After a few days, I dumped the litter box out & replaced the litter with the old formula and haven't had any problems since. This littler smells absolutely horrible....it's a waste of money!
reward numbers already used??
We LOVE Freststep scoopable cat litter....We just finished our first 34 lb. boxes...of the Extreme Odor Control. Was greatly dissappointed when I went to enter my rewards codes and was told they had already been used. I just cut them off the boxes and they were both the same. I was looking forward to the two 25 reward points to purchase more Extreme odor control litter.....We have 6 cats and this litter is the BEST. Have been using Fresh Step brand scoopable and the rewards coupons since 2009. Has anyone else ran into this problem with the rewards???
Extreme Odor Control...
...she may not look it, but this diva likes to exit her litter box in true fashion (like how Lebron James used to do a 'chalk clap' before a basketball game)...litter everywhere! still easy to clean using Fresh Step...
This is the fowlest smelling litter I have ever bought. It is so strong that I can barely stand to clean out the cat box. And unfortunately I bought the 34 pound box.. what a mistake.
I think I may bring the remainder down to the animal shelter, and buy some of the Multiple Cat litter... My cat SMELLS SO SWEET WITH THE MULTIPLE CAT FORMULA !! It's too bad that I can ill afford to buy more litter this month, but I fear cats will stop using the box do the horridly strong smell; and I can't afford to have that happen!
I finally found a litter that I can relax and not have to worry about the odor. I can't believe how well this works. I have even had people come over and ask me .." you do have cats right?" !! Thank you!!! Now, my only one bad thing to say, is that when you're pouring this into the boxes, make sure you are in a well ventilated area, because you end up with a large cloud of dust in the air.
Old Girl Loves It
My cat is 19 and is very picky. The older she gets the worse her business smells. I thought the lavender scented one was great but the extreme keeps the odors at bay. The old girl misses the box now and again and I have to clean that immediately because of the odor, but whats in the box is fine until I can get to it, even the next day. Good Product.
We love it
I and my cats LOVE the Extreme litter!!! If I end up working 16 hour days and dont get to clean their boxes you can still walk in and you would not know I have 4 cats.
I have used Fresh Step for many years and have always been pleased with all their products but this one is the best yet. This one by far has the best odor control. My 4 cats didn't mind it and it really did reduce the smell. Thank you Fresh Step!!!!!
Very Strong Smell
I usually use the none clumping type of cat litter and was disappoint to find that I had bought the type that clumps. I do not think that my cats liked it since one the them peed right outside of the liter box instead of using it.
FOUR CATS REALLY HELPS
AS YOU CAN IMAGINE KEEPING MY HOME SMELLING CLEAN IS IMPORTANT AND A CONSTANT JOB. YOUR PRODUCTS HAVE ALWAYS HELPED. THIS NEW PRODUCT IS VERY GOOD. I JUST WISH THE PAW PRINT NUMBERS WERE EASIER TO READ BECAUSE I NEED THE COUPONS TO HELP KEEP THINGS GOING IN THIS ECONOMY. I DIDN'T GET DOUBLE POINTS AS ADVERTISED AND A LOT OF THE NUMBERS/LETTERS WON'T GO IN FOR MY POINT COUNT.
The Best Yet!
While it still has more dust than I like, it controls litterbox odors very well! If I scoop daily, I can use 1/4 pan fulland do a complete change only once a week.
VERY STRONG PERFUME SMELL
I have been using fresh step for many years, and thouhgt I would try there new extreme odor control. Big mistake ! It's a good clumping litter, but the smell is very unpleasant and strong. I have six cats and two would not use it because of the strong odor. Could not wait to get rid of it and go back to what I was using before.
my boyfried and i just went on a road trip and which we brought our cats. And we both deciced that we would try this brand. we both have to agree that is is probably the best cat litter that we have ever used for them. and the girls both didnt seem to mind too.
Don't switch to this litter. The first problem that occurred is that my cats refused to use the litter box. The smell is horrible - sort of gives of a bleach odor. I did not notice any difference in order control between this extreme and the regular Fresh Step clumping litter. Because the smell of this litter is so offensive, the purpose of it use, extreme odor control, does not make a bit of difference.
This cat litter is amazing!
I love this cat litter. It takes care of the odors used by the cat, and makes changing litter, and just dealing with it all so easy!
Dusty but effective
Since beginning this litter I've noticed more dust in the bathroom. This is a bit of a pain to clean up, but not the end of the world. I have four cats and have to admit the odor control is effective; it's better than other products I've tried. I'll keep using it, but I'll probably switch to covered litter boxes to save myself some aggravation.
I love the odor eliminating carbon fresh step and have 2 cats. So I gave this a shot. It does hide odors very well, and it nevers smells like urine, however the perfume scent is a little strong. When I cuddle with the cats, their paws smell like the scent on the litter. They were hesitant to use the new litter at first, but then adjusted.
Hate the fragrance.
I dislike the strong fragrance. It is almost sickening. The box was not labeled as being scented. I love the unscented Fresh Step and have used it for years but plan to take back a box of the Extreme Odor Control that I haven't opened.
I always loved Fresh Step products but this one is the best. Clumping makes cleaning the litter box easier. Plus it masks the odor really well. My cat also doesn't mind it at all.
works but has strong, unpleasant odor
I have 3 cats in an apt. I use Freshstep Multiple Cat usually. This new product by FreshStep (Extreme Odor) definitely works but, whatever the additive is to mask/absorb odor when it gets caught on their feet after a trip to the litter pan, is unpleasant and very strong. I would have to walk away from my cat it was so repulsive. My fiance and I both agreed to stick with our usual kind.
I have never had a cat littler work so great as this one! It smells like clean laundry and works wonders! I never had to be worried about the cat box stinking up the house. Thank you to whoever came up with this one!!!!!!!!
This is my new favorite litter, but more importantly...its my cats favorite as well. I love all the Fresh Step products. I made the mistake a couple of months ago of getting a different brand...oh what a mistake. I came running back to the Fresh Step. My cats let me know the quaility of the litter. If its any other brand than Fresh Step...they will go outside the box. So they let me know, "get the Fresh Step Mom "
Strong perfume smell
Ok, be prepared for strong perfume and extreme dust. I could not wait to get rid of this product. Between my cat smelling like strong fake flowers and dust everywhere I could hardly stand it.
This is my new favorite litter! We've used the other kinds of Fresh Step, but this one seems to work the best for our two maine coons.
I really enjoy this new product, I've always had to use litters by this company because it's the only kitty litter that once you actually cover the waste (my cat is old he doesn't do it anymore, I have to cover it for him!) you can't smell it, others don't do that even after you cover. With this new extreme, I am now less on covering duty and I really appreciate that. My cat likes it a lot too. It's still not the best clumping out there, but I'll sacrifice clumping for smell anyday.
A wonderfully pleasant surprise!
The last time I bought my litter I really didn't pay much attentiion. I knew the box was different because it said Extreme. Just figured it was an upgrade from the regular Fresh Step I always use. When I got home and changed the litter I couldn't believe my nose. The smell was wonderful. It has the same great clumping, but now has a fantastic smell. Everytime I clean the box and stir the litter, the smell is still there. It doesn't bother Smokey, she probably thinks "wow this smells as good as my mama's bathroom" I am very pleased with the added scent and hope you DO NOT remove it from this product. I am glad though that you do have a variety so people can choose what they want. Thanks Fresh Step for making my laundry room smell nice all the time. Keep up the good work!!
Printing of the codes
it would be great if you could print the codes so they are easier to read, i get more invaild codes then i get to put in, i buy only this product but the codes for your rewards program need to be printer better Julie
5 Cat Strong!
I have 5 cats and the similar brand I was using in their cat box's did not mask any smell. So I decided to give Fresh Step EXTREME a go! I cannot even tell there is a litter box in my house! My cats seem to enjoy the freshness as well..they had no problem switching litter. I highly suggest using this Fresh Step EXTREME , it works 100% better than the competing brand.
I normally love the Fresh Step product and have bought the litter in the heavy-duty plastic bag for years. Because my store was out, I tried the Extreme in the box. Horrible! It clumps in the box and turns to cement, so that it's extremely difficult to clean the litter box out. Took twice as long to clean and was afraid any litter residue would damage my sink garbage disposal.
Great litter for multiple cat homes!
I've had four or more cats for years and always have had trouble with odor control. I found this new formula at the Petsmart and decided to give it a try. It has almost completely reduced odors to nothing and I only clean the litter box once a day. Thank you Fresh Step for this new formula!
too much perfume
I won't be buying this version of your product again. The overall rating had to be low because the perfume is too strong and lingers on my 5 cats. I don't smell urine or feces, but the perfume makes me gag. I can't even pet or hug them after they've been in the box.
I am very satisfied with all of the Fresh Step litters I have used. I have several cats so I have to use multiple cat litter or the extreme litter. I am very satisfied with the odor control and the way the litter clumps and I will always use Fresh Step.
The Best Yet!
I recently adpoted a 3rd cat. All of that cats are fine with this new litter, we used fresh step anyways. I have to admit I am more happy with this fresh step compared to the multi cat one! I no longer have the smell of the litter boxes through out my house! I will be a loyal fan of Extreme as long as Fresh Step continues to make it!
Really like how well this litter works. It clumps up nicely and I never smell cat waste. The scent of the litter might be a little strong if you have sensitivities to perfumes but my cats don't mind a bit. They love a nice fresh litter box. Overall I really like this product a lot.
I tried the new extreme odor control & found that the smell was way over powering. I live in an efficiency apartment & couldn't stand the smell anymore and had to throw it away. I really like the unscented litter much better.
Fresh scent, awesome clumping, and the odor control is AWESOME!!!! Cabon is the best idea yet!!
OMG THE PERFUME!!!!
If you have ANY perfume sensitivities, do NOT buy this! I just bought a box last night, and I wish I'd known that "extreme odor control" meant "mask it with a really strong perfume" before I bought the box. I dumped a bunch into the litter box, and promptly got a cloud of heavily perfumed dust in my face. The smell is so strong I was catching whiffs in other rooms an hour later, and am still sneezing today. I can only hope that my cats don't find it as offensive as I did. I'll be switching right back to the regular Fresh Step Scoopable.
Four cats give five stars!
With four cats sharing 2 boxes in a busy-busy house, we definitely know when we've waited a couple of days to change the litter. We've long used the multi-cat litter, and have been very happy with it, but recently found the Extreme Odor Control version and gave that a whirl. I'm happy to report that even when a couple of days have gone by, there is NO smell in the house - seems crazy, but this stuff really works that well! Good job, Fresh Step!
ODER WAS BAD
I WANTED TO TRY THIS ONE BECAUSE I HAVE TWO CATS SO I FIGURED IT WOULDN'T SMELL. BUT I WAS WRONG, THE ODOR WAS VERY STRONG AND ONTOP OF THAT MY CAT WAS UNHAPPY! SHE STARTED USING THE BATHROOM OUTSIDE THE LITTER BOX, SHE STARTED PEEING ON MY RUG INSTEAD. SO WHEN I CHANGED THE LITTER TO ORIGINAL SHE STARTED USING THE LITTER BOX AGAIN AND STOPPED PEEING ON MY RUG!
Iggy loves fresh step
My cat Iggy loves the fresh step. He jumps in his pan as soon as I pour the litter in. The litter smells nice too.
My Cats LOVE Frest Step Extreme
I am a new cat Mom who first tried FS multi-cat formula litter and really liked it with the exception of it being a bit dusty, which seemed to have caused my cats to sneeze. So I tried Scoop Away multi-cat litter because I could purchase two 42 lb bags at Costco with a coupon that was offered approximately every few months for the price of one Fresh Step, however I noticed it was even dustier that the FS multi-cat. Since I liked the smell of the FS multi-cat, I decided to try the Extreme formula and my cat actually choose it when placed side by side with a litter box containing the Scoop Away. Even though this litter is a bit more costly than someother brands, I found my cats stopped sneezing as it appears to be a lot less dustier than the other litters I have tried. I've also found this litter clumps much better than the other litters I've tried and the boxes smell really fresh even after one month. Sometimes I can go 45 - 60 days without dumping the old litter out, cleaning the boxes and replacing them with fresh litter (I believe this also has to do with the fact that I clean the boxes out 1-2 times a day. This became a habit since one of my cats was sick since he was a little baby kitten). So really does it cost more if a product works better and last longer??? Maybe up front but in the long run you get what you pay for, a better quality product that satisifies all needs. My cats strongly recommend the Fresh Step Extreme Order Control Cat Litter!!!
Just Got Better!!!!
Fresh Step is a great product already, this just takes it to the next step!! This is the only cat litter that does not track! I was constantly trying new litter for my cats and nothing worked! I will never try anything else! I have four cats and Fresh Step is number one for clumping and odor control! When people come into my house they do not even know I have cats! My cats love your product also! They will not use anything else! Thanks for a great product!!!
Fresh step Extreme is great
I have always used Fresh Step. When I saw the new Extreme Fresh Step, I thought I would try it but I never thought it would be so much better than the regular. Because of my living situation the litter box is in the same room with me. It was horrible in the mornings. This product completely eliminated that odor problem and my cats are fine with it. I am very pleased with the new product.
I have three cats and my male cat has extremely strong urine and feces. This Extreme litter is great because I don't smell the excrement at all anymore and I also have extremely bad allergies but the smell of the litter doesn't affect my allergies at all! This is the best litter I've tried so far and it clumps incredibly well!
Not even Tuna Night Stands a Chance Now
Its a wonderful product really, for even the most fickle and stinkiest of felines. My cats dont particularly care what litter they use so long as they can fling it everywhere and watch me sweep it up, but I do believe they enjoy it. It keeps my laundry room from smelling, even after the boys [Two 'teenage' cats] use it. Overall, I do believe I'll be sticking with Fresh Step for as long as I own cats!
Great product however my husband thought it was a little too scented. Now I mix this with the Freshstep Multi-cat and everyone is happy.
I love this cat litter because it truly eliminates the odors! I have two kittens and I can't even tell that the box is full....no smell all day!! My cats had no problems switching to this brand from other fresh step litter! I strongly recommend this product! :)
No problem switching over!
My cats had no problems with the extreme odor control formula. I started by adding some to the multiple strength and have not had any problems. With five cats you think one of them would of protested!
fresh step extreme cat litter is amazing. i can't smell anything except the soapy smell which doesn't bother me when cleaning the litterbox. the clumping is still the same with the other fresh step litter i have tried before which is still excellent. my cat loves fresh step extreme cat litter. i don't recommend this litter to people who don't like the soapy smell, but i really like this litter. it's perfect.
Best Fresh Step yet!!! clumps great, and it does what it claims, love it!!!
A better cat litter is Crystals
Nothing works as good as Fresh Step Crystals. No dust, little tracking, no smell. Lasts for weeks. Expensive but worth every penny.
Our female cat did not like the EXTREME litter.
She went everywhere except the box, she also did this with a different brand.
She will use other Fresch Step litter, but NOT EXTREME.
We do not recommend the EXTREME litter, we do recommend all other FRESH STEP litters.
Not as good as Multiple Cat
The odor is very perfumy. There is a lot of dust when filling or cleaning the litter box. Since I have allergies it would have been nice to know ths prior to buying it. Once it is used up I will be going back to Multiple Cat formula. Thanks for trying.
best litter ever!
My oldest cat has refused to use anything but Fresh Step clumping litter for over 10 years....now with 4 cats and the new extreme odor protection my house doesn't smell like one huge litter box. I used to have to completely dump the boxes every 2 weeks maximum and replace with all new litter but with the new extreme odor shield the litter lasts a lot longer and has saved my small budget from being completely used on cat litter. It is an amazing product. Only shortfall is that it is a bit more dusty...but for the quality of odor control and the reduction in my need to keep cleaning out boxes it's worth it. I love this product!
I have 7 cats and have always used Fresh Step - it's the best litter money can buy, in my opinion. One thing I noticted about the new Extreme litter is that after sitting in the box for several days, not only is there no odor, but the litter still smells fresh and perfumy. I am quite pleased with it!
GREAT ODOR CONTROL
I have 2 male cats and I've tried Fresh Step regular and multiple cats and I can say the extreme is the best of all...I ♥ it!!!!
Works great! Switched from Arm & Hammer and never going back
Fresh Step EXTREME definitely stands up to its name. The odor is finally gone. I have four house cats and have tried everything. I will never stray away from Fresh Step clumping Extreme. Thank you.
Not Too Shabby!!
This was our first time usig this product. We are a Tidy Cat family. We had a coupon for this and decided to try it. It smelled great!!! I wish there was less dust when you pour it into the litter box. We bought the 42 lb bag and the handle on the back is NOT made to hold up to the weight of the product because I went to use it and it broke off the bag!! but all in all not bad. May buy again!
No More Sneezing!
I had used Arm & Hammer litter for YEARS because of the odor control. However, my cat was always sneezing whenever he finished doing his business (SO dusty). Fresh Step was on sale so I thought I'd try it... What a difference with the carbon! Solves the smelly problem and my cat no longer sneezes! I apprecite that it's less dusty also. THANKS!
I dont really think it does much for the smell. I usually use the crystals and still find that they are much better. To much of a perfume smell. Needs something to control odor not try to mask it with perfume.
I really like the new smell, it not only blocks the odor in my bathroom but, it doesn't smell like a cat box anymore. I have two cats, they don't seem to mind but, I think they like it better! I love it, it smells like cedar & pine needles that is alot better than what it used to smell like.
Controls odors well BUT
I have been using Fresh Step ever since they changed their brand to contain Carbon. I have a small home and 3 hungry cats so the litter boxes are used a lot. I tried this version and was immediately struck by the heavy dust it creates. In just 3 days I had to change my ac filter due to the amount of dust in the air, and I can't even breathe when I clean the boxes. This is definitly for larger houses, or even garages, because it is great control, just really dusty.
I have always been a Fresh Step consumer. However, even when I thought I had the best litter you can always tell when your cat just came from the litter box. With Extreme oder control litter, I have not smelled the cat box once, even when I'm cleaning it out!
If you were looking for cat litter, this is the one. Never used better cat litter! If you were to leave the litter box dirty for a week (not that I do it), not a smell! Worth the price!
I've been buying fresh step for years. I will not go back to what I was buying before love this stuff. thanks
I use to use World's Best cat litter and with 7 cats it was getting very expensive and it wasn't holding up to 7 cats. I was very hesitant to change litter but I had to. I just happened to pick out Fresh Step Extreme and let me tell you, nothing can compare. This litter clumps the best I have ever seen, absolutely NO smell at all, and this litter doesn't track all over my house like the last litter did. Even when I was scooping litter pans I didn't smell anything. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
This litter is very fine and our cat doesn't like it.
My new Go-To!
I LOVED this new litter. FINALLY a litter that works from the trusted brand of Fresh Step....but that actually smells good! I would never have thought that litter could actually smell good. But it covers the oders (given that you actually clean your litter box regularly), but each time you clean it, it's like providing an air freshner to your room!
This is definitely my Go-To litter from now on!
Great Odor Control
I love the new Extreme formula. We have 5 cats in our house and it by far is the best for odor control. My cats don't seem to notice the difference maybe because we have always used Fresh Step. My only complaint is it seems to be very hard to find in our area. I hope it will be a regular product in most stores soon. I find it one week and the next week the same store does not have it. I highly recommend Fresh step litter in general but the extreme formula is by far on the top of our list.
My whole house smelled from it
I have used Fresh Step for over a decade, because it was NOT heavily perfumed. When you enter a home that uses Tidy Cat, you can almost taste the kitty litter. The cats get it on their paws and track it into the carpenting and the furniture until it hits you in the face like a wall. It is not a pleasant smell out of the box, and when you mix it with urine and feces, it's enough to make you gag. If you keep the litter box clean, and change the litter regularly, it does not stink. Who wants their home to reek of litterbox perfume? I dearly hope you will not discontinue the unscented versions, because if this stuff is my only choice, I will have to find another brand, and Fresh Step is my favorite for odor control.
My cats didn't like it either. I had to throw out most of the box. They used it but then spent half an hour trying to get it off their paws.
So much fresher on the smell!! Same great product with an even dryer formula.
I have been using the Lavender version for a few years. Walmart, Petco, Petsmart no longer carry it. So I switched to Extreme. I noticed urine smells in the box as well as on my kitty. I am now trying the scented version. I hope this is better.
deaf momma happy
Hi! Im deaf. so my nose is senstive! Im a mama to one kitty.. this litter is amazing. I dont even smell anything! my kitty loves it. He loves anything i get for him because he knows i dont make alot of money.
I love this litter. the odor control is great. It actually makes my basement smell better. My cats seems to use this litter as well as they use the multiple cat formula. This is the only litter that we will buy from now on!
Although the scent was a little strong, It worked well. I will definitely be using it again!
Fresh Step Extreme Litter
I love this litter! i just started using it and found it to be super with odor control! The litter box is in my computer room and I was always smelling it --which caused me to continually dump all the litter in the box & do a total clean out---so time consuming and costly. With Freshstep Extreme -I smell nothing! Now I have to remind myself to scoop the box!! Thanks Freshstep for such a great product!!!!! I went back to the store today to get more-there was only 1 box left. Hope my store can keep it stocked.
I have 5 cats and only one of those cats is outdoor. It has taken me years to find a litter that is for multiple cats and works as well as it claims on odor control. This is the only litter that has worked in that area, which makes me happy. I recommend this litter to anyone who has more than one cat. The only drawback is that it is a little dusty at times but I can deal with a little dust if it helps cut down on the smell.
Love the way it clumps, love the way it cleans up. No odor is the best thing. Best I've used in quite awhile. I use it in both litter boxes. I have 5 cats and they like it too.
The scent seemed like a bad perfume and our cats started peeing elsewhere avoiding the cat boxes with the new litter. We changed back immediately.
My cats did not like it.
I normally use Multiple Cat formula but was excited about trying the Extreme Odor Control product. When I filled the cat box with it, I immediately felt that the fragrance was extremely strong (and not to my liking.) When the first cat visited the litter box, she went in and immediately came back out without using it. Shortly thereafter, I found a p-puddle on the floor right outside the litterbox entrance! Not happy with that. Subsequently (on the same day), I was presented with another p-puddle and later a poo. I would've dumped the litter and replaced it with our regular brand, but I did not have any on hand. The next day, as the fragrance had weakened some, the cats hesitantly used the litter box. However, I am now going back to our Multiple Cat formula.
i love THIS NEW LITTER!!!!! IT IS GREAT FOR ODOR AND CLUMPS GREAT! MY CATS LOVE IT i USE IT IN ALL MY BOXES NOW .I LOVE YOUR LITTERS I ALSO LET EVERYOPNE KNOW THAT THIS IS THE BEST YOU CAN USE AFTER ALL NO KNOWS I HAVE A CAT TIL THEY SEE THEM THANKS AGAIN .
I have used Tidy Cat for over 25 years, Pet's Mart was out and I got Fresh Step Extreme. All I can say is WOWOWOWOW!! I no longer have to use cat litter deodorizer. I will never go back to the "other guys"
Best Cat Litter Ever
We don't have to clean the litter box as often as it absorbs the smell better. It clumps better so when you go to scoop it out, you don't make a big mess shaking the "excess" loose litter off. Would (and have) recommend this litter to anyone.
Very happy with the new Extreme
Bella(my kitty) and I are VERY happy with this new formula!!! I tried a box and it was fantastic, smell..what smell...and the clumping was great!!! We are both very happy I went out and bought 3 more boxes!! Thank you very much..I would never change from Fresh Step, it has proven to be the best from my family.
This litter does all it should! My house never has "litterbox odor", and I have 3 cats! I use 2 large litterboxes and clean every other day. I do, however, wish you would make the box acceptable to the litterbox "remnants", and please make the PawPoints easier to get to. Old cat-loving women on blood thinners should not be using razor blades!
What's that smell?
We have 2 cats and we always use Fresh Step Multi-Cat. Thought we'd try the Extreme Odor Control to see if it worked as well as your Multi-Cat. NOPE! BAD IDEA. There is a noxious odor that when mixed with cat urine and feces is OVER-WHELMING and disgusting. No matter how well we clean the boxes, it smells BAD. Nothing like waking up to a smell that is a combination of bleach, urine and feces. My cats aren't happy with it, either. I will NEVER buy this product again.
My cat hates the NEW Fresh Step w/ odor shield
My cat hates the NEW Fresh Step with odor shield. I bought 25 lbs. and he likes the old style better, but our Walmart don't carry it any more.
FINALLY, THE BESTEST!!!
WHAT TOOK YOU ALL SO LONG??? SUPER PRODUCT, AND MY CATS LOVE IT TOO!!! I HAVE BEEN A VERY LOYAL CUSTOMER SINCE FOREVER, BUT FOUND THAT EVEN USING FRESH STEP, I WAS CHANGING MY 3 KITTY LITTER BOX ALMOST EVERY DAY DO TO THE ODOR!! NO ONE, NOT EVEN THE DOGS HAD NO PROBLEM FINDING IT..YECK...BUT, NO MORE..I'M DISABLE, AND GETTING DOWN ON MY HANDS AND KNEES ARE REALLY HARD TO DO. THIS NEW EXTREME CAT LITTER MAKES MY SITTING ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF THEIR BOX MUCH EASIER AND NOT SOMETHING I DREAD. IT'S STILL HARD TO GET UP AND DOWN, BUT I DON'T HAVE TO DO IT EVERY DAY. THANKS, FROM THE BOTTOM AND TOP OF MY HEART FOR THIS GREAT PRODUCT..LOVE IT!!! AND SO DOES MAX, MONKEY FACE AND CHANCEY!!!
Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control
This product didn't work anything like it claims. The clumping was fine. The scent was fine at the start. In no time we were smelling the cat odor. It didn't do anything when the cats scratched at it. It only smelled better if it were completely scooped and then stirred up. I was very disappointed over all. The only thing extreme about it, is the the name.
at last a great product!!!
I have 3 cats and I have never been happier!!!! My cats feel the same. Clean box and good smell returns, no more having to spray box!!!
Not what I expected.
I have used Fresh Step for many years. I have tried just about all other products on the market and have always returned to Fresh Step. I'm afraid to say that the odor control in this product is not as good as the original product. The clumping was good but the immediate removal of odor, as in the original, just wasn't happening. Why keep trying to improve on something that is already perfect.
omg, my house saver!
This product is great!The litter box is right next to us in a small apartment, in the living room, and you don't even smell it! My younger sister stopped by after being home from college and thought I got rid of the cats, she couldn't smell the litter box, not even when she walked right pass it! Also it is my oldest daughter chore to do the litter, sometimes she forgets to do it every morning, but even if she misses a day you can't tell unless you look @ it. It makes my man @ peace with the litter box not smelling up the house! Now only if they could make something like this for my baby daughter's diaper pail, I would be in seventh heaven!
This is the best fresh step litter ever!
I am thrilled about this product and have always thought highly of fresh step cat litter but in a word to describe the Extreme Odor Control..amazing! I bought this new version not thinking it would be much different but it truly is many ways. It smells great..yes, great! When I scoop out waste it smells like I've just cleaned out the litter box fresh from the very beginning..every time I clean scoop. I'm a huge fan and this is my favorite product of litter to date. Thanks Fresh Step!
change of litter control
I have bought fresh step cat litter for over 10 years for the fact that it was the only cat litter that never made my house smell. Unfortunately I am now thinking they changed their formula on it as I walk in my front door and can smell the cat box that is located in my basement (as my husband or I scoop out the litter box everyday so there is no smell and now after this last month all we can smell is the cat box). I realize prices keep going up on items but do not change a item that was great. As soon as we are done with this box of litter we will be trying other products so we can have the non cat box odor in our house. Also now we use to be able to just grab the sift through the little box now we have to dump the whole litter box out as every little bit clumps togeather:(
2 cat potty
Works great! I have two cats in the house. Their litter boxes are in our finished basement. I can't smell a thing when i'm down there!
