    What's the best cat litter?

    I'm getting a kitten in a few weeks and will need to buy some cat litter. I know there are a few types, but which is the best? My mum buys the wood pellet type for her cat because it's light to carry. Any info would be appreciated.

    tesco ones quite good and cheap

    I use Catsan, as it hold in the stink well, and doesnt track too badly, main reason is I can get it cheap from Costco.

    I've used most, from Tesco value - cheap and OK, tand the Tesco Premium, wood based, which is the wood pellet type. This is great, smells good, doesn't get trodden around etc.

    I found with mine that the bright white litter was the best at staying fresher for longer. Can't remember the exact name of it, but I used to get it at Pet Smart and it was something like ultra white litter

    My cats prefer next doors garden, send me a bucket and I'll fill it and return........be a bit heavy mind, so P&P won't be cheap!!! :-D:-D:-D

    We always used some crystal stuff, can't remember what as cat has used fields for ages so never needed any more! Like little plasticy crystals, never smelt and was light and economical as you didn't need too much.

    I've been on the Pets at Home website and there seems to be clumping or non-clumping cat litter. It seems to me that the clumping litter allows the litter to be changed bit-by-bit, whereas the non-clumping litter is changed all in one go. Is that correct?

    we use thomas,have tried other ones and think its the best and least smelly

    We have 5 cats, and was advised by the Cats Protection to use Catsan Pink. Its good, no smells, and we only need a full change once a week, only problem is all the cats started to get pink feet and bottoms!!!

    We have switched to Catsan white now and also get it from Cosco (as well as thier own brand cat biscuits) its much cheaper from there.

    That's right, with clumping after they've done their business and covered it up, you can scrape that 'lump' out. I swear I read somewhere though that you shouldn't use clumping littler with kittens though cause it's bad for them if they eat it, but when I asked in the shop if it was true, they had no idea at all, but I went with non clumping, just incase :-D

    woodlit .. its made of wood pulp and you can chuck it down the toilet as its degradable

    My cat won't use the wood stuff, I liked it as I liked the smell, but she kept going on the floor next to the tray!!! I just use Tesco premium which is fine for both of us :-)

    definatly catsan, its great!!!!

    one of my cats is an indoor cat - she wont go out at all so im gonna have to keep on buying the catsan! the other one goes out but if hes desperate through the night he will use the tray. i find it holds the pee smell in well - mind you, as soon as they do a poop i scoop it out into a nappy sack and bin it outside - yak!!!!
