Thanks to so much wonderful reviews, I switched to Tidy Cats scoopable, and have yet to smell Billy's "bombs!" I like it, and they didn't mind it at all!

Billy is the same way, ComeresMom.... he is QUITE a digger! He throws his litter... ohhh... I'd say 2-3 feet from the box! I have a covered, box, and that stops him from making an even bigger mess, but, he still mananges to throw it out! I tried a litterbox with a flap, but, he took the flap off, dragged it into his litterbox, buried it, and then just went on top of it! (Thank goodness there was litter between his poo and the flap!) I constantly dug it out, and put it back on, until I just gave up! It was a plastic flap, so if anyone is going to get a flap door litterbox, might I suggest a flexible flap!? The other kind just doesn't work! If only cats could learn how to flush!

I use Tidy Cats scoopable, but thinking on switching to feline pine.

I use the cheapest scoopable litter available for my adult cats. I go through huge quantities and need the odor control because of the numbers and the relatively small space.

For young kittens, I use regular clay litter if they are in the foster room and either Swheat, World's Best, or Feline Pine if they are in playpens.

Is it bad to use clumping litter for kittens 3 months of age? I currently use fresh step clumping litter.

I've used it with kittens that young and have never had a problem. Just make sure they aren't eating it. And unscented is better than scented.

And ALL cat owners should buy Litter Locker. It is the best think ever invented for a home with cats.
Even if wet food causes stinky poop, a long-term diet of all dry food greatly increases the chances of diabetes, urinary crystals, and kidney disease. I'd much rather scoop a little more often than have to cope with any of these serious chronic conditions.

Yeah.... and it makes them SO much happier!

I'm a new cat owner (less than a week) but am using Swheat Scoop on the recommendation of customers (we have a pet supply store). So far I am very impressed. No smell, easy cleanup and little tracking.

Sometimes the litter gets 'stuck' to her paws and she licks it off..because of this, should I change the type of litter i use?

Arm and Hammer Unscented super scoop. It rocks.. no dust, quick clumping and no odor.

Felicia and Beau use Heartland Wheat litter.
I like it for several reasons.
1. it is flushable.
2. it is harmless if the cat eats it.
3. it is delivered. This is nice because I don't drive.

Tidy Cats for Multiple Cats. Has a picture of 3 cats on the bag.

My lovelies have 6 boxes and I change them once a week. So I buy A LOT of Tidy Cats.

Sakura uses Max scoop. She has used clumping litter all her life so i dont want to change it. I feed her wet and dry food. They both have advantages and disadvantages. I dont think neither of them are wrong to use.

Wet food can cause lots of teeth problems and dry food can cause Uti's and eveerything that comes with that problem. so i figure it safer to just use both

I've found that Meijer brand cat litter for Multiple Cats is really good. I recently geto petco brand and it not as good as Meijer at odor control. My father also agrees that Meijer is the best after years of "testing".

As for stinkie poo. I think alot of it is diet. I know with both of my cats Kitten Chow gave them super stinky poo. Iams corrected the problem but I've found that Nutro gives them the nicest smelling poo.

Adia uses Arm & Hammer Super Scoop ... it's the best at clumping, and I never smell her poop. She has used Scoop Away and Tidy Cats before, and we've found the A & H to be the best at getting rid of odors.
