Blue Buffalo Naturallly Fresh Multi-Cat Clumping Litter
My asthma is fairly well controlled and has been for years but I found that ammonia was one thing that could trigger an attack. Most litters, I have found, after just one week can have a strong ammonia smell which was triggering my asthma every time I went to clean the litter box for the full change I did weekly. For a while I was trying different brands, and any alternative I could to find something that could be used for my kitties that would not trigger an asthma attack. I tried various clay litters, silicon litter, and corn cob based litter. Finally I tried the walnut litter. I haven't looked back since. I can clean the litter box for it's full litter change every week without having to use my inhaler after. To me, that is amazing.
The only downsides I have found with the litter is the dust which stays in my kitties white paws making them brownish at times and the fact it takes longer for poo smells to go away. Of course, those are things I am willing to put up with if it means no asthma attacks!

Love it overall
This is a love-it-or-hate-it litter. I have 5 cats, with 2 boxes that I clean daily. Full disclosure: this litter does track really badly. Worse than the "regular" litter because it's more fine. That being said, I'd rather walk on dust that's been tracked out than the huge grains of Tidy Cats that my cats used to drag out. I think it covers the urine smell remarkably well, which is my favorite thing about it. It does take a while to clump, but once it does it clumps well. My biggest frustration with my old litter was that scooping it always got globs of dirty litter on the scooper so I was constantly having to clean it off. Not so with this litter. And those clumps of litter that get in the corner of the box that you can never quite get out all the way? Not a problem now. This litter isn't perfect, but I do think it's superior to Tidy Cats and Arm & Hammer.

I switched to this when in first came out and loved it. You don't have all the dust you get with the clay litter. I hated having a layer of dust on everything. It clumps really well as well as controls the smell well except when my cats don't cover their business. I have a long haired cat and the clay litter would get stuck in the fur near her butt. I never have had a problem with this litter doing that with her. The only problem is it turns the white part of her feet brown till she cleans herself. Make sure to change out the whole litter box every 3-4 weeks or it will stop clumping as well as it does when you first put in fresh litter. This litter is wonderful and I recommend this to everyone I know who owns cats.

I have four cats & three large litter boxes. I've tried clay litter, pine litter, pellet litter, and silica based litter--and THEY ALL TRACK--that's just what litter does! This litter tracks too, however, it's VERY LIGHT and EASILY vacuumed or swept up. It clumps REALLY WELL (just make sure your scoop has thin openings for sifting) and odor control is great too! As with ALL litters, it's important to scoop MORE than once a day to control bacteria and odor. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS LITTER!!! And keep in mind, no matter what litter you use, it's important to dump ALL the litter once a month and sanitize the litter box!
