Smart Cat All Natural Clumping Litter from Pioneer Pet. It's made from grass so there's nothing egregious in it. It weighs about half what clay litter weighs and is less dusty. That said, it is pricey compared to clay.

I use Fresh Step Crystals. Love it! It's a bit pricey- 15.00 a bag- but it last over a month for just my one girl. We also have the litter robot and it works wonders with that as well. No dust and it absorbs the urine smell.
Hi. I was just reading through about litter and seen you have the litter robot. I just ordered mine last week. Can’t wait to try it. My kitten is the stinkiest little thing ever. Hope this helps. Do you use the fresh steps crystals in the robot? Have you tried other kinds? Thanks

I use clumping litter in my litter robot. Here is what they say about litter for the unit:

The Litter-Robot works well with almost any clumping or scoopable litter. Litter beads and crystals that are small enough to pass through the screen will also work. The Litter-Robot is not compatible with litters that are strictly absorbent, non-clumping, loose clumping, newspaper-based, or wood-based pellets.

I use Golden Grey clumping cat litter which is what I'll keep using! I must have tried half a dozen brands, and they were either too coarse, too bad for odour control, or too dusty. The brands claiming to be dustfree seemed to always be the dustiest, like World's Best. Butchie would come out covered in dust, and then he would cover us and the furniture in it! :bored: Golden Grey has been the only dustfree one so far and it clumps brilliantly and not much smell!

Smell has more to do with diet.

I feed a raw diet and there's no smell at all.

Has anyone used Pretty Litter?
We're wondering if the reviews are as good as they.

I've tried several store brand clumping litters, and Tidy Cats always beats them. Dust is minimal. Store brands tend to be very dusty, and Harley didn't like the lightweight/crystal versions. Almost tried the Breeze system, but worried about fecal waste as I'm gone 10 hours +. Champion pee-er, it clumps well.

I used World's Best for about 5yrs and loved it (still love it) but the price was just getting to be too much.
I switched to Blue Buffalo's Naturally Fresh. It's walnut based and haven't had any problems with it. The girls like it and it clumps great!

@MelissaAlice I have to say thanks :)

Let me explain why ......in December I bought 100 lb of the cat litter I like because it was on sale. I figured it would last until next December and then I would look for another big sale. But then.......I ended up with nekkid #3 in January. Of course by then the year end sales were over. Bummer.

However, your post reminded me to look again and as fate would have it I found a very similar grass litter on sale for 40% off. So thanks to you I'm again golden for the rest of this year ;)

Yes I use prettyitter but not all the time, I bought a couple bags incase I need to test for some reason. It works and I also got the food they make and my cat LOVES IT, her skin is prettier and she had more energy. Highly recommend.

In our house we use wooden pellets from the hardware store. The reason that we have it is because two of the kids dig like they are going to China when on the potty and with pellets they don't sneeze. Also, there are no pellets in my bed. The litter got stuck to their paws and ended up in my bed. It's easy to scoop up number two and flush it in the toilet. It's way much cheaper and environment friendly! We use the peewee litter boxes with two sections and I think it's so easy to clean. It just took a weeks training and then they all accepted the pellets.

Cat's Pride. And its not for our Zino, however, its for our other cat who is FUSSY! Lio is a normal short haired house cat and its to HIS liking we use the Cats Pride.

however it is very good! Clups well, and keeps smell down pretty well. Silica clumping litter was a mess, clay litters clumping Lio refused to use and we didn't have Zino then. I actually think he would be like our Old Thai Cat Nym, and use anything.... The Sphynx isn't fussy.....

Our cats drag litter EVERYWHERE! We use Arm&Hammer multi cats, with litter robot. But I'm really sick of litter being in our bed lol @Zab I feel that! Like we need to brush off the bed. I came here looking for suggestions!

Oh I would love to know the trick to that too. I have an anti-tracking mat but Ellie still gets it between her toes and brings it to bed.

An update: We switched to World's Best clumping brand, and no more litter in the bed! It gets on the floor still, and it seems to be a bit dustier than the Arm&Hammer. I just rub their paws with a dry towel when I see them. Sometimes they leave a dusty print on the couch and I'll hunt them down, but only when it gets close to bath day. Like oily paws and the litter dust sticks to them. We love it so far!

That’s what we use for our Spyhnx as well and for all the same reasons. Except Angus doesn’t dig, he scratches the side of the litter box instead of the litter trying to bury everything but he can’t understand why it never works. Lol.
