I am pretty picky about cat litter and I have tried all kinds. From the recycled newspaper type, to corn, to clay. I can honestly say none of it has made me very happy. I also have a child who is asthmatic, so any type that has dust is really not good around here.

One of the biggest things I dread about buying cat litter is lugging it around into my apartment. I live on the third story and there is only stairs.  This usually means I go buy litter and then drive around with it in my car for a few days, too lazy to lug it upstairs and not remembering to nag my husband to run down to the car to get it.

Tidy Cats cat litter has found a solution to my third story lugging problem. I was sent a container of their Lightweight Cat Litter to test out and see how well it did. I must say, it really is a lot lighter. The container was the same size as a 20 lb one, but weighed a mere 8.5 lbs. What a difference!

The real question, though, is how well did it do in covering up odor and being scoopable?

You will be relieved to know that it performs just as well as others I have tried and maybe even a tad better. It had a pleasant clean scent and I didn’t notice and dust in the air when I dumped it. My cat, although he has never really been picky about litter, seemed to take to it just fine as well.


There were only a couple complaints I had about it. It seemed to clump and stick almost too well as it stuck to my cat’s paws quite a bit more than other cat litters and thus he trailed it around my bathroom a lot more. This was somewhat of a nuisance as it meant I had to sweep a couple times a day to keep it under control.

The other issue for me, at least, was the price. Although I was sent this at no cost to test, I was curious at the price of it. Here in Washington state, it runs around $12. This is way more than I am willing to pay for this much cat litter as it didn’t even last a month.
