    We use clay (unscented Fresh Step multicat) and don’t get tons of dust. Do you have a cover on your cat box? Ours is one of the rolling ones, so we never actually scoop, just roll, pull out the clump container, dump, and go about our business. It’s far less messy that way!

    I clicked crystal on mistake. I use clay, and I have the same problems you do. DUST… DUST EVERYWHERE!

    @Bichon Frise:  My cats do this, too. And one cat is very large. We recently bought a litter box with sides but no top, because they will not use the ones with tops. It helps a lot! We have three cats and two litter boxes (I clean them daily.)

    The one in the room with the sides I hardly notice dust anymore. The one in the other room with no sides… Well dust EVERYWHERE! lol

    Here is what mine looks like:

    I am going to go ahead and get another one. It was super cheap, it came with the box, sides and a scooper!

    It is only $15!

    I use the tiny crystals.  It can get dusty, but it’s not as bad as the clay.

    Corn.

    I like it because it’s natural and safe for my cat, it’s great with odor and no toxic dust for my cat or my family to breathe in.

    @Bichon Frise:  You’re welcome! It does really good. My cats sling litter everywhere. So this helps control that ALOT! Still some gets in front of the litter box. But it is super easy to sweep or if I am being lazy vacuum up. And it doesn’t happen so fast. I use to have to clean around the entire litter box twice a day. Now a few times a week. 🙂

    We use Breeze. It has these non-absorbing pellets. The urine falls below to a pee pad that you change once a week. The poop kinda smells, but if you clean every day it shouldn’t be a prblem. I just hated the clay littler being tracked everywhere

    @Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  We use World’s Best Cat Litter brand. I used to use Fresh Step for many years (I think around 5 years), but switched to WBCL about three years ago. It’s made a huge difference in our home. The biggest is the odor control. It’s MUCH more manageable!

    I use the clay stuff. I tried the corn in one of her litter boxes and she wouldn’t touch it.

    @Bichon Frise:  We have 3 kitties (one is going to be re-homed later this month), and we use Mimi Litter from Walmart. It’s silica gel (like that stuff in packets that comes in shoe boxes or preggo test boxes, for instance), and creates a little dust, but nothing like clay litter. And also, it does not clump, so cleaning up is way better. Doesn’t stick to the litterbox OR cat mess. Great for sifting when cleaning out the box. Our cats won’t use anything else.
