I just bought silica litter for the first time a week and a half ago! What a complete waste! The pet store said “oh it’s great.. you only have to change it every 2 months and it doesn’t smell”. LIES!!! I’ll admit I am a tad bit sensitive to bad odors.. I smell things coming way faster than the husband does, but, man. I just had to throw out the whole box of litter a week later, the smell was near vomit worthy. Anyone have experience with it? I found some older posts on here but wanted some recent information.
I like Arm and Hammer in the black box but it’s a lot more expensive than some of the other stuff. I’ve also tried Purina Tiday cats and it’s not bad other than my cat tracks it all over the place. Any other suggestions for good litter. My biggest concern is scent. I’m obsessed with my house smelling clean. HELP!!!

I use the worlds best cat litter. It’s recycled corn. I’ve honestly never had issues with my house smelling like cat(confirmed by many people who come over and said they could not tell we had a cat). It’s slightly more expensive probably, but I’ve never used the clay litter so I’m not sure of the cost difference. Honestly, I would pay just about anything to prevent my house smelling like a cat so I would not pick a litter based on price. Also how many boxes do you have? We recently added a second box and that helps a lot since she used both boxes less frequently.

One box only! We live in a one bedroom apartment so two would be overkill. I think Ive seen the bags of worlds better little for 30.00 approx and I pay 15.00 for the Arm and Hammer!
I likw the A and H so I may stick with it, the silica experience was def a one off. Just wondering what everyone else uses.

Yeah, I have no answers for you. I NEED answers in fact. So I am gonna follow the heck outta this thread.

We’re currently using Arm and Hammer (although it’s not in a black box, it’s in an orange bag, so maybe it’s different). I prefer that and World’s Best for the eco-friendliness, but it’s expensive and my cat tracks both of them throughout the house.
My fiance prefers the cheapy stuff that’s scented. I was against it at first since it’s so dusty and not eco-friendly, but he doesn’t track it everywhere so that’s definitely a plus.
I’ve never tried silica.
I’ve tried those little pellet things, and those were useless.
I’d love to hear more about what everyone else uses!

I use this and it is the best litter I’ve ever used. The 2 best features? The house doesn’t smell at all and it clumps so tightly you don’t waste litter when emptying out the box. ( we have a litter box where you pull the tray part up and out and it holds the clumps while the rest of the litter stays in the bottom of the container)

Another vote for worlds best. It’s still a clumping litter so easy to clean, doesn’t create nearly as much dust as a clay litter, smells fine (we also add a natural deodoriser) and is supposed to be healthier for cats.

My little kitty has an intolerance/allergy to corn so when I first got her she had mad stomach issues lol….poor thing. Anyway, I use Tidy Cats Dual Power. I seriously can’t smell it unless I’m standing right next to her while she’s going and it’s not even that bad. Otherwise I can’t smell it at all. 🙂 I love it!

Also I’ve heard great things about World’s best cat litter like other bees are saying. I’ve never used it because I’m so attached to the Dual Power, but I used to work at a pet store and World’s Best sold like hot cakes.

We use arm & hammer super scoop unscented because my cats won’t use anthing that has a scent to it. We just throw some extra baking soda in the box about a week before we change out the litter if there’s any “smell” which typically there isn’t.

I have never used a litter that 100% protects against smell, and we’ve tried a lot. We currently use Arm&Hammer (in the orange box) but thankfully our cats have grown out of litterboxes and go outside now for the most part (they use it maybe once at night).

I use this. Apparently it’s flushable but I’ve never tried to do that. I had been using a crushed walnut litter but it made my cats paws brown from the dust. This has been working well so far.

I tried that cat litter but my cat kept trying to eat it! Which shes never done before. I was so hopeful it would work out.
I like Arm and Hammer – I get the multi cat one because I have one particularly stinky cat. It comes in an orange box. Sometimes I grab the Costco brand and buy a small box of A and H litter deodarizer and add that in. Seems to work like a charm. I personally don’t think any litter could last 2 months without changing it entirely.

I use Fresh Step, unscented multi-cat (only have one cat now, but why not) clumping litter. I can’t stand the scented stuff, it disgusts me as much as spraying a bathroom with ‘air freshener’. I used to use Tidy Cats, but it didn’t clump well in the summertime and never smelled decent. Even the Fresh Step depends on the cat – she’s been known to lay some serious eggs and if she gets too lazy to cover, the smell comes wandering down our stairs. Otherwise it hasn’t been an issue at all.
The best is when she just does her business outside, though.

Another vote for world’s best! It’s the only stuff I can stand. The other stuff is too dusty or doesn’t help with odor.
