Q: Kitty litter?
I wanted a better kind of kitty litter to use right now I use the arm and hammer and jhonny cat right now I want a non-scented one that covers up the smell and clumps better than the two I am using but I am also horrobily allergic to certain brands of kitty litter these are the only two I have found so far that I'm not horribly allergic to any suggestions?

I really like the Multi-Cat version of Arm & Hammer. It works perfectly for my crew. It comes in an unscented version too...my cats hate to be overpowered by all those flowery fragrances they put in litter. Yesterday's News is okay. Feline Pine pellets are great but I didn't like the scoopable version at all. It got gummy and cemented to the box. World's Best is also good, but expensive. You don't have to use as much though, so that's a plus. I haven't tried it in a long time, but ScoopAway gets good reviews and they have a Free variety that is free of fragrance and dyes. It doesn't have a lot of dust either. The ones that are just silica crystals seem to work well too. The main thing is to have at least as many litter boxes as you have cats...one extra is optimal. Scoop and stir them at least twice a day and completely clean and sanitize them at least once a month. I dump the litter once a week and completely replace it. Once a month I dump them and sanitize them in a bleach and water solution, rinse them completely, and fill with new litter. Clean more often if the litter starts looking dirty and has pieces of litter and feces that can't be scooped out.

I don't know how it works for cats but I like unscented Yesterday's News for Cats for my guinea pigs. It keeps the odor down and I can just toss it in my garden to compost it since guinea pigs don't eat meat. It's sort of heavy, but it might not be too bad in a litter pan compared to a guinea pig cage. I use it when we will go on an overnight trip and I won't be home to shake fleece.
