Can anyone recommend a non-dusty cat litter?

Iíve been using Publix generic cat litter. Inexpensive, relatively, but it generates tons of dust. Iím thinking of trying tidy cat clumping (the one that comes in a container.)

I realize that the non-destiny ones are going to be more expensive. But I live in a one bedroom apartment and Iíd rather pay the higher price and have less dust.

Any recommendations?

2. I switched to Feline Pine and am happy w/it. If you live near a feed/seed store buy EQUINE Pine

It's about $7 for 40#. Compare to Feline Pine's price. Same stuff.

11. Yes, that is what we use. Equine Pelletized Bedding. We have to scoop the solid waste into a

bag and put it into the garbage bin. Pee turns the pellets into sawdust and we are fortunate enough to have a place on our property where we can dump that. It does take quite some time to break down.

4. Stay away from "light" litter

A few brands offer a light-weight version of their litter, and we've had to give it up because of the dust.

5. Cats die from it too; it clogs their lungs quickly.

I don't have a link, but someone in my rescue lost her cat that way.

6. I switched to this a few months ago

and have not been disappointed. Every other "low dust" product I tried just about choked me.

7. Arm&Hammer

My girl uses Clump and Seal Slide, which produces little dust and is sold in supermarkets as well as pet stores.
Of course, you could go all the way and get Fresh Step or other crystal litter.

Best of luck with the search!

8. good posts. I have noticed the dust lately.

I moved temporarily to an apartment complex that is more like living in a hotel; there is no air circulation. I keep the temperature controls on all the time. I have to keep windows closed for precaution with the cats.
Never realized how dusty the litter is. I use Arm and Hammer multi cat and the clumping type. I am going to switch. This dust is making me sick.
