need a rec. for new kitty litter

i've been using fresh step since forever... i think they changed their clay formula b/c it looks different and doesnt clump as well

can anyone suggest a different litter that clumps well?

thanks in advance!

I love Feline Fresh: it works just like the rocks without the dust. My cats had no problem switching over to it, though we still have rock litterboxes for them to use as well.

It also smells like Xmas trees when you clean it haha.

Re: need a rec. for new kitty litter

The best-clumping one I've found is Ever Clean. It clumps perfectly, so when you clean it out, the pieces are rock-hard and no little pieces fall off (those little pieces used to really bug me with Fresh Step). However, it does have a greater dust issue and I suspect it's not as healthy as the natural litters because of it. When I pour it in, I really have to wait a while for the dust to settle. But I think the dust is probably part of what makes it clump so well...

I use World's Best Cat Litter.

The odor control and clumping are great. The downside is that it's very dusty--but at least it's made from corn, so when kitty licks it off her fur, its not harmful.

I would recommend using an open litter box, though. I was using a closed one, and poor Artemisia was sneezing all of the time. That's changed since I switched her to an open-top box.

Re: need a rec. for new kitty litter

We use World's Best, too - it does track a bit, but in my experience it is not too dusty unless it's from the bottom of the bag, or the last bit left in the box. I do appreciate that there's no perfume smell. In our household we are so sensitive to added perfumes and fragrances that the corn dust is not a bad compromise.

I think if you have lots of cats in your family World's Best might not be the most cost-effective choice, however. I fairly sure that there are a few others from natural sources which may be less expensive. We haven't researched it because Gracie doesn't go through litter all that fast, being just one kitty...

I just started using chick starter (poultry feed) and it's working well. A bit dusty when I pour it in but it clumps well and no noticeable odour. It's also a lot lighter to dispose of then the clay was.

Is your litterbox in a bathroom? I use S*WHEAT Scoop, which is great because it's flushable. It also seems much cleaner to me than other litters I've come across. It doesn't have that strong, sickening smell.

I use Dr. Elsey's (Prescious Cat).

Usually the Classic -- sometimes PetStupid only has the Ultra and I get that. Both are great, clump hard, and are low dust. I won't go back now!
