Arm & Hammer® Essentials Cat Litter
I purchased this litter for my two cats and was expecting it to be very "natural" and instead I was very disappointed by the STRONG odor of perfume coming from this litter. I will not buy this again!!

Tia and Chloe say "2 paws up!"
My 2 kitty girls and I LOVE this litter. It is light and fluffy in texture and NO DUST! I live on 4th floor with no elevators and can easily carry a large bag over my shoulder without a problem - MUCH lighter than clay). One large bag of this stuff generously fills 2 deep Booda litter boxes and still gives me plenty extra to add to their litter boxes as needed throughout the week. I scoop 2-3 X a day so I may use more litter than most. I have a large textured litter mat in front of both litter boxes so there is very little tracking in my apartment. Sometimes I see a little "dusting" of it on my dark hardwood floors but a quick wipe with a barely damp paper towel is all it takes and it doesn't hurt your feet if you step on it because it's fluffy/soft in texture. I like that this litter is an all natural product, much healthier for my cats and me. It's highly absorbent and both urine and feces clump well. I never smell any urine or feces in my apartment when I come home at the end of the day unless one of them has just pooped. I replace the litter in both Boodas every 7-10 days (not usually necessary but I'm a bit of a clean freak) and imuch easier for me to dump/bag this litter because the corn litter is a fraction of the weight of heavy clay. As I said earlier, there is absolutely NO DUST with this litter, so it is MUCH healthier for both you and your cat(s) - just think of all that nasty clay dust getting into your pets' lungs (and yours) every day, as well as the constant wiping you have with clay litters - that messy clay dust gets everywhere. I used Fresh Step for years and this corn litter is so much better. The scent is pleasant to me (smells like cedar chips) and the corn fibers are light and fluffy in texture which is gentle on their little paws. I absolutely love this litter. Tia and Chloe say "2 paws up. Mom!" It's a WIN/WIN!

I bought this because I was looking for a non-clay litter to help with my cat's (and my) allergies, and we specifically wanted a corncob-based litter. However, the scent was so overpowering, that in less than an hour of filling the litter box, the whole house smelled and we had to just dump all the litter into the trash. The cats never even got to try it. I didn't see anywhere that it said 'scented' and was seduced by Arm & Hammer brand into thinking it would be neutral.

I recently purchased this product to both help the environment and cut down on the objectionable odor I experienced with clay-based litter. When I scoop the litter to dispose of the urine and feces there is no strong odor and it is very light. I usually put the droppings into a small plastic bag that is made to be used when one walks a dog. Then I put the small plastic bag in a diaper genie. I will definitely be using the Arm&Hammer Essentials cat litter from now on.
