Swheat Scoop Multicat Cat Litter
Absolutely the Best!
I have 2 cats and use a large "Iris" brand flat bottomed tote for a litter box and have no trouble with this great litter sticking to the sides or bottom. I live in an older home and have had no issues with flushing down the toilet (if a clump is very large, I let it sit in the water a few minutes allowing it to soften a bit and it goes right down!). To address the small amount of litter tracking, I purchased the "Purr-fect Paws litter mat that PetSmart sells and it catches every little crumb, then I just pick up the mat and shake it back into the litter box. Works fantastic...check it out!!

Working beautifully so far
After having read a large number of reviews on this product, I was skeptical but hopeful. After about six weeks of using Swheat Scoop, I am completely satisfied and do not have any of the concerns some people have raised. We have five boxes, so I kept one mostly clumping clay, two a mix, and one original box and one temporary box with just Swheat Scoop. With cats being creatures of habit, the clay box ended up getting the most use initially, but the others began to see increased use over time. There is some dust, but less than clay. With clay, saying it is 99% dust free is like saying if you fall off a cliff, 99% of the fall doesn't hurt. The litter does cling to the side when they urinate slightly more than clay, but I try to get boxes with a smooth texture, and the clumps come off easily by removing them slowly. I love the light weight of the litter, making it easier to clean and less of a load in the trash. So far, the initial Swheat Scoop boxes have been in use six weeks and aren't really needing to be changed yet. My biggest concern is the possibility of insects in the litter, but I communicated with the company and they insist that their process eliminates any insect eggs. They state that any bugs come from wholesaler warehouses or other products stored near the litter (e.g. birdseed). I keep the bag in the garage, off the ground, and sealed to hopefully prevent this from happening since so far, the product is vastly superior to clay. Needless to say, although some dust is not great, I feel like I am less congested not breathing in clouds of clay dust twice a day. My choice was to wear a mask or try something more environmentally and physically friendly, and so far is is a great success. At this point, all the boxes are Swheat Scoop and hoping I can continue with this product.

I like the Swheat scoop a lot & almost always buy it (unless it isn't available at the time). My only issue is with the tracking - its EVERYWHERE & I have a large covered litter box. I think the odor control is pretty good considering one of my 2 cats doesn't cover her mess & I don't have an issue with scoop ability. Seems to clump just fine to me.

Not as it proclaims
I have tried many cat litters over the years.. I have 2 cats.. I was told this litter was less tracking & it was rated 2nd.. .not true.. It tracks all over.. I have a cover over the box & we can still smell the urine & poo after they use it,... I have to change it within the hour.. This litter sticks to the bottom. You have to literally scrape the bottom..it doesn't clump well but the feces fall apart when you scoop. For the price I thought it would be a good one.. At the Pets Mart here in Charlotte NC I was told the generic brand of this was the same litter but not named brand so it was 2-3 $$ less.. thought id give it. Try..It was actually worse.. many cat litters..I need the non scented kind. Anyone else have these same issues? Ug!!
