Tidy Cats Breeze Litter Box System – Full Review

Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System

Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (4.6/5)Tidy Cats Breeze Litter Box is a very innovative system on litter boxes because its unique design divides liquid from solid waste to control odor and make the litter box maintenance an easy task.

Tidy Breeze litter system uses a special litter pellets that are 99.9% dust free and anti-tracking. These litter pellets allow the cat’s urine to pass through to be absorbed by the pad located on the bottom of the box.

Solid waste remains on the top of the unit, over the litter pellets for easy cleaning.

With this cat litter box you don’t have to deal with clumps getting stuck on the sides of the box or smelling the strong cat urine odor.



  • Kit contains: 1 litter box, 1 scoop, 1 bag of pellets and 4 pads
  • Litter pellet 99.9% dust free and anti-tracking
  • Separate compartments for liquid and solid wastes
  • Quick and easy removal of wastes
  • It efficiently controls urine smell
  • Dimensions: 20.3″L x 15.2″W x 11.8″H



First, you pour the pellets over the top section (the litter area) and then you place a pad on the bottom tray. After your cat uses it, the urine will go right through the main platform into the pad that will absorb it and the feces will be on the top of the unit, over the litter pellets.

This efficient separation of liquid from solid will keep you from smelling the strong urine ammonia odor, common in litter boxes.

With the Tidy Breeze system you don’t have to scoop out clumped litter, you only have to scoop the waste from the litter pellet area daily which is very easy since there is not stuck clumps involved, only remove the waste from the top. These litter pellets are made from silica gel and zeolite; the silica gel means that these pellets don’t create any dust or a mess like other cat litters. They are also 100% safe for your cat as well.

To clean the bottom, simply pull out the pad tray after a week or so and you are done. To dispose the feces and the pad simply put them in a plastic bag and toss it in the trash.



  • If your cat urinates in the same spots every time, it is a good idea to rotate the pad on day 3 or so.

  • Try to put the unit on a hard surface instead of carpet.
  • If you want to save money on litter pellets, you can wash them and reuse them. A good tip to wash the pellets it is putting them in a washable bag to go in the washing machine and the dryer.
  • When pouring the litter pellets in the litter box, try to keep most of them in the center of the box.
  • Even though these pellets are safe for your cat, if you don’t want your pet to eat some of the pellets, test your cat before buying the whole system by simply putting pellets in front of it to see its reaction.


  • Easy to assemble and setup
  • Innovative pellets-litter for easy scooping as the cat’s urine is not involved and there are not clumps stuck on the sides of the litter box.
  • Innovative and efficient system that control urine odor
  • Pads last several days (up to 7 days with one cat)
  • Easy to dispose cat urine pads
  • Almost no tracking pellets
  • Nice stylish design
  • Easy to disassemble for cleaning


  • You have to buy pads and pellets to maintain the system.
  • Cats need to adopt the pellets instead regular litter.
  • As cats cannot dig on the pellets, usually feces are exposed although typically the pellets somehow grab the smell after some minutes. Before that to happen, you can smell the feces.
  • Noisy if your cat is a stubborn digger
  • If a cat urinates high, the walls may leak urine onto the floor.
  • It does not have a hood to complement the unit.
  • Size of cat litter is rather small.



Tidy Cats Breeze Litter Box System is a good system that works as advertised. Its main accomplishment is to control the cat urine odor and reducing the scooping, making this task much easier. There is a little “poop” smell involved as cats cannot dig and cover the feces, but the special pellets seem to cover the smell after some minutes. However, it’s more suitable for small cats and mostly female cats that don’t urinate high.

? I recommend the Tidy Cats Breeze litter box because it is an efficient system to control urine odor in your house. I suggest placing the Tidy Cats Breeze Litter Box in the bathroom, laundry room or garage. This unit is especially suitable for:

  • To be used by a small sized cat (up to 10 lbs.) who does not dig the litter that much when using the box.
  • Preferably female cat
  • Male cat that doesn’t urinate high, against the wall
  • If you are allergic to regular cat litter.
  • Good option if your cat urinates a lot.


X I absolutely don`t recommend the Tidy Breeze Litter Box:

  • If your cat spray high
  • If your cat has stomach issues (diarrhea) or its feces are soft
  • If you have a dog in contact with the litter box.
  • If you don’t want to buy supplies to maintain the cat litter box system.

    I like the breeze system but I caught one of my cats eating the pellets so I’m worried now about the safety of it

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Julia, the pellets are made from zeolite and they are not harmful for cats. Actually, zeolite can help to detox cats and dogs. Check a link about it http://www.natural-wonder-pets.com/dog-detox.html I would not worry about your cat eating one or two, but if your cat eats a lot of them (which I doubt it, cats are smarter than that) I would not use the system.

  2. Betty Ann says:

    You can use Feline Pine or pine horse bedding pellets and cheap puppy training pads to save money.

  3. Justin says:

    Good review…..I really love the Breeze Box system so far. Only issue, one of my three boys doesn’t seem to want to poop in the pellets. I regularly find poop near the boxes, up against the wall (luckily it’s on my easy-to-clean concrete floor). Any ideas? Is there a pellet alternative that might be softer I wonder? He seems to be peeing in it just fine though (I haven’t found any urine outside of the box).

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Justin, Tidy Breeze is meant to be used with those type of pellets and I understand only those are available for using with the litter box. A tip: it might be a little gross but next time when they do their business on the floor, pick it up and put it on the pellets and they will start making the business in there.

  4. Molly ken9 says:

    Are the pellets harmful to my dogs if the eat the feces with the pellets stuck to them

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hi Molly, if your dogs eat one or two it may not affect them but if they eat a lot I think it’ll be harmful.

  5. Barb says:

    Switched to the Breeze system because my older cat urinates a lot and the scoopable litter was making a huge solid clump along the bottom of the litterbox. Tried the feline pine but the sawdust was getting overly saturated …. it was a mess!! Breeze helped somewhat, at least no more concrete-like substance to try to dig out. However, the pads needed changing at least daily and odor was still a problem.

    After I tossed the pad, one day, I also removed the drawer to be cleaned. I heard my older cat using the litterbox and at first was concerned because the pad and drawer were not there; but on second thought I realized that I may have stumbled on the perfect solution for both kitty and me. Since I keep Romeo’s potty in my spare shower, his urine went right down the drain …. It never dawned on me that there was no floor to the box under the drawer.

    To this day I have never replaced the drawer. All I need to do is scoop the poop once a day, rinse the pellets once a week(they last about a month). There’s no more pads or clumps or sawdust or urine or odor.

    Now it really is a Breeze to keep my kitty’s toilette nice and clean while eliminating the mess and the dirty work for me. 😉

  6. Sara says:

    Barb, that’s brilliant. I have a guest shower that is only used a few weeks out of the year. I’m going to put our two breezes in there.

  7. samantha says:

    is it deadly if the cat eats the pellets?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      If a cat eats one or two pellets is not deadly, but if a cat eats a lot, let’s say a half cup or more, it’s necessary to take it to the Vet.

  8. Starr Cash says:

    How can I dispose of used pellets? I hate to send them to the landfill, will they breakdown in environment?

    Can the pellets be cleaned and reused?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Starr! the pellets of the Tidy Cats are not biodegradable since they are made from Zeolite, a family of naturally occurring, non-toxic minerals. If a cat eats those pellet it won’t hurt it, but you need to make sure give your pet lots of water after the ingestion. If pets keep eating pellets they need to have the Tidy System switched to another litter box. Some customers wash the pellets. A tip is putting them in a washable bag to go in the washing machine and the dryer.

  9. Barbie says:

    I got a new cat (1 year old Siamese) & purchased your litter system. She used it just fine for over a month. About a week ago she started pooping behind the living room sofa & has continued that daily. She urinates in the litter pan but won’t poop there now. Even though the litter wasn’t dirty I did change it. Any suggestions?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      She doesn’t want to use pellets anymore. Siamese are very special cats, they change constantly their habits. You may have to start using regular litter in the box.

  10. Brianna says:

    Can you use any litter in this litter box or only pellets?

  11. Tracy says:

    I think my almost 2 month old kitten ate the pellets. Will it dissolve in his stomach or should I be concerned?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Tracy, the Company states that a few pellets wouldn`t hurt cats but if you have a kitten and maybe ate a bunch of them it`s better to take it to the Vet just in case.

  12. Judy says:

    I purchased 2 units as I have 2 cats. I really like them as it is much easier to keep them clean. However, I am having an issue where their urine seeps out of the sides where the top & bottom meet and it is getting all over my tile floors & on the wall. Does anyone have a solution for this ? If I can’t find a solution, I may have to go back to the traditional litter box style. Help !

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      Hello Judy, this sometimes happens with litter boxes that feature tall walls connected to the base, like the Tidy Cats and when this happens is more likely when used by male cats. What you can do is somehow try to seal the sides where the walls and the base are connected.

  13. Pamela Teig says:

    I just purchased my Breeze 2 days ago and my cats seemed to like it for pee, they hadn’t pooped until today. They are taking pellets and playing hockey on our wood floor and now I’m worried they might have eaten them if they’ve fallen out, I’m also concerned that our 4 month yellow lab got some as well. I believe they were playing with a couple. Can the make them ill? What do I do?

    • Lorena Ávila says:

      It’s not safe if they eat a lot of pellets, but if they eat a couple it will be just excreted through their feces.
