I'm a survivor!

I desperately need to switch kitty litters. I had originally started with Tidy Cats and I really liked it, but I seemed to be going through quite a bit of it rather quickly (esp for only having two small-medium sized cats). My check book was starting to hurt. So I switched to arm and hammer figuring it would do an even better job with smell. I'm on my second box of it already and completely disgusted. it throws up so much dust and even when scooped on a regular basis, the clumps fall apart and it smells down right atrocious.

So I've been thinking about switching to something a bit less "traditional". I was thinking about a corn based product. However, now I've read that there are some serious cons with that too.

I know everything has pros and cons, but I'd like the best of both worlds, something good for my lungs and my babies lungs as well as something that's easy on my check book (clumping litter preferred). Ideas/thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Tons of people swear by Dr Elseys Precious Cat. We tried it once, thought it was okay but not 100% on the odor control, but now we are trying it again because of its great reputation for being dust free. In our other box we are trying Cat's Pride Fresh and Light fragrance free because we also read that it works great and has little to no dust. The verdict is still out on both because they are mixed with our old litter right now. No complaints so far.

Our old litter was Fresh Step Multi-cat Unscented Scoopable. We LOVED everything about it but the dust started getting to us. The odor control was so good I could go 2 months without dumping the boxes (we keep them scooped and spot cleaned well.) Even after 2 months they were odor free and I probably could have gone longer but didn't want to push it.

We use Worlds Best Litter (Multicat) been using it for 5 years now, no complaints no matter what they say about corn based products.

This is not a clumpable litter, but I just switched Tasha to Yesterday's News a couple of weeks ago and I really like it. It's a pelleted litter made from recycled newspapers and it's 100% biodegradable. I was sick of clay litter for the same reasons as you and I'm really happy I made the switch. Tasha started using it right away without any problems. It has no dust or odor at all and can be purchased pretty much anywhere pet supplies are sold (Wal Mart, Target, ect).

Another vote for World's Best Cat Litter, the multicat formula. It's the only kitty litter we use in our household now. kitty

I use World's Best Cat Litter. I love it and it seems to last a while and it clumps pretty good. My mom even commented that my apartment never smells like a cat. It costs about $8.50 for a 7lb bag. Also, try searching for online coupons for World Best Cat Litter. For the last two months I have been able to find $5 coupons, which means it only cost $3.50!

Definitely try World's Best. It is an all-natural litter made of corn and works great. It is a little pricey but one bag (7lb) will last over a month for a single cat, so, in that regard, it's quite reasonable.
Dr. Elsey's is a very good litter, too. Check the internet for cat litter coupons cause a lot of times you can just print them out and take them in to the store. Cat litter adds up fast every month, that's for sure.
