Best Litter?

Hi,

I just adopted a two year old cat from my local humane society today & am going tobe picking her up in a few days & needs some advice.

What brand of scoopable litter have you all found to control the oder
the best?

Thanks,

-Paul

My tribe and myself prefer Arm&Hammer exclusively.

I love Swheat Scoop. They have awesome coupons out for it all the time in the nature food magazines.

I know that it is flushable which is good. Lately two girls got attacked right outside my apartment and I am not comfortable emptying out the trash at 2 A.M.

I was using Arm&Hammer, and honestly have no complaints about it, it's a great litter!

But I switched over to World's Best because it's more ecologically friendly

I use arm & hammer scoopable mixed with fresh step crytals. I mix it myself because the crystals they put in the blends are not very big.

I have 4 cats and 3 litter boxes. This is by far the best odor control I have found. The crytals mixed in absorb the urine smell. I mix it with the arm & hammer for 2 reasons. 1....it is expensive (ecspecially if I put it alone in 3 boxes!) 2....the crystals are hard and I don't think the cats would use the box without actual litter in it. I scoop my boxes twice a day, but only completely clean and change them once a month.

That's a good idea fbodgrl, I've wanted to try the crystals but $$$ and I have 6 huge boxes, 2 of them over 40qt, and can't imagine filling all 6 with the crystals and have been using those little rocks as additives. I don't think my cats like them. I may try that the next time the crystals are on sale.

I originally used Arm and Hammer Flushable and it was great on oder. The flushability removed any possible smell from scooped clumps too, which is something you might have to consider if you live high up in an apartment. If you have easy access to outside garbage it's not really an issue. In the end, it was too dusty for my taste though so I switched the girls over to Feline Pine. I love this litter but it is pellets and your new roomie may reject it if she's used to a sandier kind of litter. That said, it is great on oder control too, and no dust!

Grats on the new addition to your family!

Paul - one thing to keep in mind is that what works great for someone else might not work for you. Sometimes cats have peculiar tastes about things for no apparent reason that humans can fathom. So, by all means, try what the posters here have recommended, but if it's not working out, don't hesitate to try something else.
