Purina® TIDY CAT Breeze Cat Litter Box Sytem
Best Litter System - Hands Down!
I've been using the Breeze litter box system for 3+ years. I can't imagine EVER going back to the scoopable litter. Here's why:
- It is much cleaner. No litter is tracked in the house. No clumping litter is stuck in their paws, tracked onto my bed - yuck! Just a few Breeze pellets on the floor in the laundry room and that's it!
- It is ultimately much cheaper! With two cats the Breeze pad lasts me a week - a pack of 4 a month. Before, I was buying one large box of A&H litter per week (due to a sick cat.)
- I had two older cats. The transition was much easier than I expected! I simply took the hood off of their old litter box and placed it on top of the Breeze system. They went right to it.
- My cat was in kidney failure. When using the scoopable litter I'd go through a large box once a week; scooping heavy mounds of clumping litter at a time. Half the amount would come up in a giant clump each time I scooped. It was awful! The Breeze system was SO much easier.
- BONUS -- With a sick cat, the Breeze system allowed me to easily monitor his healthy stools. I could see blood in the stools and urine that I could have NEVER seen in regular litter. I took the Breeze pad to the vet to get confirmation on the blood. He was impressed.

Do not recommend for purchase
This is a poor product. I liked the idea of the breeze system, so we gave it a go. We have one cat. She transitioned to this litter box wonderfully. However, after the first bowel movement she produced, the entire house smelled of it. The pellets do, in fact, stick to the fecal matter, and you have to attempt to shake all of them you can off before bagging it, being as that the entire bag of pellets is said to last you an entire month. The pellets are also dusty. As far as odor control for urine, we could smell that as well, after her only urinating twice. Needless to say, this product does not provide odor control as it advertises. I do not advise purchasing this product unless you do not mind your home smelling of poo. I read that you must scoop the poo immediately with this system, and I have also read that people say they wait for the poo to dry a bit before removing it. I have issues with both of these suggestions. For many people scooping immediately is not an option, and may I say, that if you do this, the pellets stick to it immensely. As for allowing the fecal matter to dry before removing, have fun with that. Because it will smell up your living quarters until you remove it. Don't waste your money on this product!

After one month, we still love it.
We purchased this one month ago and we really love it. We got puppies last fall and the cat decided she was moving upstairs. We had to move her box into the bathroom (only place with no carpet) next to the shower. It was a disaster from day one. Who wants to step out of the shower and into kitty litter that is scattered all over the floor. She can't help it. It sticks to her paws and gets tracked out every day. This system works awesome for our situation AND our cat (not all cats are the same). My girls are in charge of taking care of it (ages 12 & 16). They turn the pad around in the middle of the week because our cat likes to do #1 on one side of the box and #2 on the other. We have no problem with smell. There is an occasional pellet out of the box, but it is not a problem to toss it back in or in the trash. I never want to go back to scoopable litter again!

Any chance for taller sides?.
It was easy to switch my cats over to this system (I have a 12-year-old female and a 1-year-old female). It is so easy to care for! My 8-year-old son scoops the box every morning (takes only a minute or so), and I change out the pad every few days. Once a month, we empty it out and wash down the whole thing. I also like only needing a couple of bags of pellets once a month instead of lugging all the buckets of heavy scoopable litter.
My only complaint is that I wish the sides on the box were taller. Every now and then, one of my girls will be in the box, but they end up peeing on the side and it runs down and onto the floor. Since it is only occasional, I will definitely keep using the system. However, if you ever came out with a larger box or something with taller sides (I really dislike the lowered front--not needed for my cats, and only allows them to scatter the pellets so they can play with them!) or a cover, I would definitely be interesting in upgrading my system.
Hmm, maybe some interchangeable tops you could buy separately so people could customize their system according to their needs?
