Best clumping dust free litter?

Hi, I am looking for advice on the best "dust free" clumping litter. I have two indoor cats and currently use Fresh Step. However, the dust is terrible. It covers everything in the room I put the litter box in.

What would you suggest that clumps good, and is dust free?

Cat Attract clumps very well, but it is very dusty, as I have found out. Of course, I'm only on my first cat, so I really can't compare it to any other litter.

Dr Elsy's Precious Cat. I used to use fresh step as well, but the dust and the perfume started bothering me. Love this new litter! Much less dust and no gross fragrance

The perfume is an issue as well.

Hi Keeli! It's funny, I was thinking of starting a similar thread! I also have two older kittens, so they use their boxes often enough for me to consider about their litter.

I've used only two types of scoopable clay, one being PetCo's brand (unscented), and the other Dr. Elsey's ultra precious (blue bag). Dr. Elsey's was much less dusty, especially when pouring new litter out from the bag. One of my cat sneezes every once in a while, so I think I may repurchase this again. I also don't like inhaling dust particles myself when scooping/pouring litter. Watch this link:

I've also heard of a brand called "Integrity" which I've yet to try. They make several types, such as the traditional, scoopable clay and natural, biodegradable types. If I try it out and deems worthy, I'll let you know.

I also recently got a better scoop, called the "Litter Lifter". It really helps because the way the tines on the scoop are designed...no shaking/sifting, means less dustiness for me, and the process is much quicker! Link to watch:

I used to use fresh step too and hated the dust so I know where you're coming from! I switched to tidy cats (multicat I believe) and it's a huge difference! I haven't noticed any dust at all, not even when I'm pouring it in the litter box.

I use the "Integrity" cat litter, scoopable, unscented, and love it!
It's a smaller/finer grain thats easy on kitty feet and it's not completely dust free, but almost so! I don't have to worry about dusting all the time and it works well for odour control, even tho' it's unscented and all of my cats approve!

TabbCatt, I just get the Regular, unscented one, I haven't tried the MultiCat formula in it!

Ok, thank you for letting me know. My local pet store carries this brand, so I may just try it out.
