Hmm...haven't seen that one.

We use World's Best. No dust. Clumping is fine. Odor control is awesome. All you smell is the light sweet natural scent of corn -- and that only when you're near the box.

I have two problems with MOST litters. I have a black ceramic floor AND i have the nose of a hound dog. So litter cant be dusty and must not hold any stinky smell.
Feline pine, with their box works best for me. Absolutely no smell...kitty pee makes it turn to saw dust...which drops through screen to holding box...i cant clean that out all i want and no smell... I just flush poo as they go.
I have noticed they dont sound wheezy now that I have been using the Feline Pine regularly.

Our kitten Sadie came from a foster home that used Feline Pine, we noticed that she was constantly sneezing and had runny eyes, we switched to clumping litter and she hasn't had any problems. I think she was allergic to the Feline Pine, although it did work great. We use EverClean multi-cat for our 2 little ones and we have a litter-locker and there's no smell whatsoever.

I'm glad to see another EverClean user! I swear that is the best litter my 2 cats have used so far, and we've tried a few. Coincidentally, I had the same problem with Feline Pine, except it wasn't my cats getting sick... it was me! that pine smell was giving me a sore throat. As long as I sift out the dirt every day, the EverClean smells fresh for at least 3 weeks. It's really amazing. I just hope they don't discontinue it since it doesn't look like many people use it.

I was using Scoop Away because it seemed to clump so well, until I couldn't take the dustiness anymore. (One night I changed the litter in the box in our master bathroom right before I went to bed, and it felt like the entire bedroom was filled with dust!) I used Tidy Cat before that, but I wasn't happy with the odor control. So after reading this thread, we are now trying Fresh Step. It's definitely not as dusty as the Scoop Away, so we'll see about the odor. Wish us luck!

I use Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Multi cat in the litter box and have for years.

What about a litter for a cat with respitory issues? My cat has herpes and has the usual issues that come with that. I had started out with Tidy cat and was VERY happy with that all around. but was concerned it was too perfumey for Fiona and switched to Swheet scoop. But am having an issue with odor....and i live in an aparment....you do the math

Anyone with a cat with this illness? what do you use?? Does it matter? She seemed happy with the tidy cat too.

We use Tidy Cats for Multiple Cats - works awesome, we've been using it since Harley was a baby - we don't find it too dusty or anything. I've never had the need to try anything else I guess either.
post #42 of 53
I'm a fan of the Presidents Choice Green litter. It's also corn based, although a bit different than worlds best. I assume it's a lot like the feed, which I have had a hard time finding. This works though, it's easy to pick up in the bags, and the bags are resealable.

We use Arm and Hammer -- the one in the bag, not the box. It smells like pine and clumps really well. I also use a litter box spray freshner daily, which helps in our house as our baby, Maverick, is a kicker so dirty litter is often kicked out onto the mat.
post #44 of 53
I'd like to change my vote. The PC litter smell has been driving me batty lately! Time to switch back to Worlds best!....in a couple months once I work through my current supply.
post #45 of 53
i use the petco brand...it doesn't keep the smell out as good as possible but it clumps well and its cheap if you keep getting refills.
post #46 of 53
We usually buy what's on sale. We add Arm & Hammer to help with the smell.

22 cats and I use fresh step scoop. even held a unneutered males cat pee without to much odor
post #48 of 53
I usually use store brand clumping, however it is dusty. Price is right $2.99 for 14 lbs. No odor though, but I scoop twice daily. I have two cats using it. The litter box is in the utility room which is off the kitchen. If there is an odor after usage
a room spray takes care of it. Of course I scoop right away.

I used Tidy Cats for multiple cats and I was very displeased with it. It doesn't seem to clump at all, and doesn't really control the odor as well as I would like. Fresh Step seems to work well, but the best that I've found so far is Scoop Away. With 6 cats, it works very well and I'm happy with it. I also use the Arm & Hammer deodorizer.

Being cheap last week I bought the 28-pound bag of special kitty scoopable litter with crystals, carbon [reads just like fresh step] for under 7 bucks [but the next day, scared as heck after I mixed it with my normal multiple cat fresh step, I had my SO buy the good ol' fresh step] But I am very impressed with the special kitty's clumping ability so I will mix the two from now on...it is virtually odorless but very fresh in terms of odor control [make sense??]

i just bought a bag of that too! i'm also quite impressed. and the cats give it a it's not dusty, and doesn't smell perfumey like regular special kitty scoop. it's also less dusty than the grocery store unscented scoop that we've been using.

do you find fresh step smells perfumey? i haven't tried it since they changed to the kind with carbon in it. we tried it several years ago and it was very floral smelling.

I started with a new litter about two weeks ago. I used to use Tidy Cat Multiple Cats (though I only have one) and it was good. Now I switched to Tidy Cat "Small Spaces" which is supposed to help with odor even in small apartments (though I live in a house).

I LOVE it so far. It really cuts down on odor. It's clumping style litter and the clumps don't fall apart or crumble badly like with some. It's so easy to scoop and keep clean I think it's going to last a bit longer too.

it's back to fresh step for us, oddly enough and very uncharacteristic, a perfect, dark solid turd was found outside of 1 of 3 litterboxes which house my two babies. as weird as it sounds, while I was happy to see it [loose runny bowels are the norm with the kittens] and alerted me to leave well enough alone, and so far so good, it has a 'fresh' odor nothing sickening or anything. good bye; special kitty.
