In search of dust free litter...

My mom said she remembers seeing an advertisment about a litter that is 99.9% dust free and that it might be made from pine? Anyone know what brand of litter that is?

Feline Pine?

It's little pellets, and when your cat pees on it it turns to sawdust. They also make special litter scoops for Feline Pine.

Other mostly dust free litters are: World's Best (corn based), Swheat Scoop (wheat based), and Yesterday's News

I think cat's pride makes a dust free litter.
The container will say 99% dust free

I personally thought Sweat Scoop was a bit on the dusty side... I think some others may have posted the same thoughts back then. If I remember correctly there were also people that swore it was totally dust free.

I use Feline Pine, and I can't POSSIBLY say enough wonderful things about it. Give it a shot. I think you'll love it.

It does sounds like feline pine... most pellet type litters are dust free but it takes a while for cats to get used to them.

I use Worlds Best and find it non dusty and it clumps well, but is quie expensive.

I've personaly switched from clumping, to crystals, to pine, and found pine the best - my 2 cats didn't have a problem with it even though i didn't switch up the litters gradually. It's completely dust free, though the smell does take some getting used to - smells like sawdust particularly when the litter is fresh.

edit to add the kind i use is actually for horses, called Equine pine stall horse bedding, though it's sold at my local petstore. $10 lasts me over a month for 2 cats!

Is Feline Pine flushable? I live on the third floor and it's a pain in the butt to run down to the dumpster 5 or 6 times a day. I've been using arm and hammer flushable which is great except for the dust. I did try Swheat Scoop and the dust was much less but I was unhappy with the odor control so I swapped back.

I'm assuming with feline pine that you change out the entire box when it's mostly saw dust, but are the solid waste clumps flushable? How often do you all change the box out?

Yes, Feline Pine is completely flushable too! Another great thing about it!

Also, it's very cheap compared to other cat litters.

I wish my girls would use it!
