Tidy Cats Small Spaces

I switched my foster kitten to this litter and so far it's very good. There was basically no dust and it clumps very well.

I've been using World's Best Multicat but I'm seriously thinking about switching my own cat to this too.

Tidy CatsŪ Small SpacesŪ - Clumping Cat Litter

Thoughts on this litter?

Happy Holidays!

I use it (along with the green lid and dark blue lid) mixed 50/50 with Dr. Elsey's ultimate.

It tracks a lot more than I'd like, but it's great with odors and recently dropped a lot in price. Mixing it with Dr. Elsey's helps to reduce tracking.

I use Purina's Maxx Cats Small Spaces. I think it's a similar formula, but Purina markets it under the "Tidy Cats" brandname in the U.S. and under the "Maxx Cats" brandname in Canada. I wouldn't consider using anything else. Great odor control, virtually dust-free, clumps well and very little tracking.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

I buy whatever Tidy Cats is on sale. This time, it was the Small Spaces. I've tried a lot of other types, but I really like Tidy Cats. Sometimes when Von's has it as one of their $5 Friday specials, I can get 20 lbs. for that price and, believe me, I stock up on it.

I use that litter and the power blend.... I've always used them and I like them. Cheap and generally good on odor control....

I use Tidy Cats also and really agree with the tracking comment. Thank goodness our litter boxes are in the basement so they have time to leave it behind before they come upstairs.

Oh it definitely does track. My bathroom floor is covered in litter.

I don't have a litter mat out though so I'm sure that contributes to the problem.

I wonder if there is dust I don't see. Silica dust scares me.

Silica dust concerns me too. I use pine pellets. It's pretty good for odor control and is natural and pretty cheap. When it gets wet it turns to sawdust

I didn't like it. We used it first since Lily has allergies and we (I) realized that she needed a dust free litter. There was litter everywhere, and our bathroom floor had black streaks on it from the litter (I think it was the litter that they had peed on or something?). We use Dr Elsey's now and everyone is happy since it is virtually dust free, less tracking, and no black streaks on the floor.

So far, it's still good. I do have a complaint though. There's little black clumps in the litter but I can't get them out because they're smaller than the holes in my scooper.
