which kitty litter is less dusty?

i have been using litter purrfect from costco as this was the litter my breeder uses. i know it's clay and their has been some controversy about it, but i do like how well it clumps, how our house doesn't smell like a litter box, and how affordable it is.

i just noticed that the most recent jug we got was super dusty, at least more than older jugs we got.

been debating about switching to something else as i don't want the kittens breathing in so much dust. does anyone have any dust-free scoopable litter suggestions? it doesn't have to be clay. in fact, i would love to switch to non-clay.

thanks!

I use the 'yesterdays news' litter - pellets - made out of recycled newspaper and while it doesn't clump - I LOVE IT!

I use World's Best Cat Litter and I can't sing enough praises for it. It's not dusty, my cat took to it right away and a smaller bag lasts at least one month with my one and only cat.

It's also environmentally friendly, if that is something that is important to you.

Here is their website for more information about the different litter options they have.

LOL there is a multicat formula as well that also comes in HUGE bags.

I imagine it would still last quite a while, the stuff is great!

I use Swheat litter, and i know other users on here have found that it sticks to the bottom of the litter box, but i haven't personally had an issue with that problem. I use Arm and Hammer litter deodorizer and i sprinkle that along the bottom of the litter box, and then pour in the Swheat litter. Although, with any natural litter, you do have to scoop on a very regular basis because otherwise there's a rather unpleasant sour odor that occurs. I also use Swheat because it's more cost effective than World's Best, and i can purchase it at Target for a really great deal P.S. You can also flush swheat down the toilet, depends on where you live though, and i think the same is applicable for World's Best.

Mandy uses a clay litter called Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat. Very low dust and doesn't track all over the place. And no odor, of course.

I tried to edit my recent post, but i couldn't due to the time limit. I forgot to address the dust issue, I haven't experienced much dust with Swheat litter. Although, i have experienced a tracking issue with the Swheat litter because the granules of the litter are larger than standard litters.Also, i'm unaware of a litter that doesn't cause tracking. So, for me, the pro's outweigh the con's of the litter I just have to vacuum a little bit more, which isn't a problem

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Attract litter is the best I've ever used. I have six cats
and nine litter boxes so good litter is a must. Almost dust free, great clumping
power, and all my cats like it.
