Arm & Hammer® Clump & Seal Multi-Cat Litter
I only have a single house cat, but he is a big boy, and can do the job of two or more smaller felines, so I have a very large box, and am trying out multi-cat formulas. He also has had several UTIs, so it is imperative that I keep his litter box very clean.
I tried Clump & Seal Multi-Cat after a huge disappointment with another natural cat litter, and had high hopes. Alas, it didn't quite cut the mustard. The dust control was great, and I didn't have any odor problems. I've had some litter tracking, but it seems mainly contained to the laundry room, so that was bearable. Adds another 2 minutes to my clean up time, but a big improvement over the horse stall shavings that I used for years.
My complaint has to do with clumping - my cat, being a big boy, tends to whiz along the edges and corners of the box. When I have to scoop, the main clump tends to come out (or break into two), but there are tons and tons of little crumbly bits, too small, that fall through my litter scoop. This necessitates a complete box change about every week or so, which defeats the purpose of clumping litter. This would mean I will need a box and a half to two 28# boxes every month, which is WAY out of range of my budget.
I might as well go back to buying horse stall shavings, completely change the box every 3 or so days, tolerate the extreme tracking/sweeping, and only cost myself about $5 a month in litter costs. If it wasn't for the time savings and convenience (since I've gone back to working out of the home), I think I'd do just that.

Disappointed. : (
I had high hopes for this litter because many reviews were so positive; however, this litter did not perform as promised. I have three cats kept exclusively indoors and use multiple litter boxes, so controlling odor, dust, and litter tracking is an issue I am always looking to find improvement on. Unfortunately, not so with this product, with the exception of limited dust, which I do give it kudos for. It smells, and my cats track it all over the place, much more so than any other litter. All litter tracks unfortunately, but this one is the worst. I was using Fresh Step, which controls odor really well, but it is more dusty than I would like. I may have a more heightened sense of smell than most, which could explain the many other positive reviews, but for me, this litter was disappointing. I won't be purchasing or recommending this product.

This is by far the worse kitty litter I have ever used. I have used generic brands that work better. The clumping part of this is fine, works great. However, the odor part is horrible. I have to go in the bathroom where I keep the litter box every time they go and clean it out. IT will smell my house up so bad. They are covering it up very well it just doesn't do anything for the odor. You say it will stay fresh for 7 days that is a joke. I have follow the directions to the tee. Now I have to change the entire box every other day cause it keeps the odor in even after I clean out. IT is a horrible horrible kitty litter. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Try again!
