What brand of cat litter do you use?

I'm wanting to get a different kind of litter for my cats. I've been using "Prina Kitty Litter Brand Scoopable" for over three years and now they have changed it and I don't like it anymore. It's dustier, stinkier and doesn't last nearly as long. I'm not sure why they went and changed, it was great the way it was.


Anyway.....what kind of litter are you using and why did you choose it?
Also is it good to use a certain kind of litter for a cat that has urinary tract problems?

Were in no way experts on the subject, since we've only had Toast for like 2 months, but we've been using Cats pride scoopable, its the only litter that walmart carries that is supposed to be flushable.

The arm and hammer is very good it comes in a pretty big box or we are going to start using wood pellet's from rona from the breeder i am getting casanova from she says it has a less of a smell and you will know when it's time because the pellets will have turned to shavings and it doesn't hurt a cat's paws and you really don't have to use a ton just a little and they come in 50 lb bags at only 6 dollars a bag.

I use wood stove pellets. They work well for the bunnies but they don't work well on the smell of Tyler's urine. Often I mix it with feline pine (or PetSmarts version) - that really helps with kitty odor.
I just tried the pelleted recycled paper kind. I think I like that better because it doesn't fall apart like the wood pellets when they get wet.

How does non clumping litter work? How do you clean the pee out. Lol, may be a dumb question, but I've never used non-clumping litter before.

lol I'm lazy so I change his litter once a week. I just make sure he has enough to hide his dumps then once a week I change it out. It doesn't get smelly or anything if you do it once a week more then that it starts to smell pretty rank. I use the odor controll, tidy cats and that helps a lot

Personally,i dont like using the non-clumping kind b/c i find its too messy and whatever kindwe were using didnt have odor control. mom and sandra tried all kinds and found the best one for the dollar and efficiency was the Special Kitty brand from wal-mart which comes in a HUGE box (that is quite heavy ) but it lasts for over a month on 2 litter boxes!

I use Fresh Step scoopable. I have been using it for almost 5 years now. No one ever know I have a cat. The only down fall is that its dusty.
