I have tried a lot of types of cat litter, but this was the first time I tried walnut shell cat litter.
PROS: It is all natural and environmentally friendly, which is why I tried it. It covers the smell about half of the time. The cats seem to like it pretty well. It clumps pretty well. The ground shells are tiny round granules with a very soft texture.
CONS: The litter itself has a very strong earthy odor that is pretty overwhelming. It tracks worse than any other litter I have ever used. It creates a lot of dark brown dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rrrrandy Our litter of choice for 7 cats
We now have 7 cats as a consequence of initially having 3 cats and inheriting 4 from kids. We've used every type of little and as one who changes two large little boxes at a time, I won't buy any other kind. This stuff is lighter and doesn't turn to stone like the clay types. It seems to be more sanitary and is much easier to clean and is relatively dust free.

I never thought I would say this, but cleaning the litter box is almost pleasant.
From the first time I opened the bag up and discovered it smelled like coffee grounds, to the first time I cleaned the litter box and saw how well it clumped, I couldn't be happier.
Unlike the previous brands of litter I've used (all clay-based), this one actually clumps. It doesn't get stuck to the sides of the litter box, making it much easier to clean quickly and efficiently. I was worried about not being able to spot the little nuggets, but it clumps so well that a quick sift easily reveals all the waste that needs to be scooped.
When I first brought it home, my cat's paws were brown versus their usual white - but that went away after a week or two. His paws are now back to their pristine white color. As for tracking, I don't think there's any way to avoid that unless you have a top-entry litter box, which I don't. I have a litter mat under and around the box which catches most of it, and it really only tracks a bit beyond the mat.
I was skeptical when I was told to try this, as I had read mixed reviews. After bringing it home and using it for two months, I'm a believer.
The best part? I used to have coughing fits and teary eyes after cleaning out a clay-based litter box. That's no longer the case, and my asthma appreciates it greatly.
