    Home made cat litter is the best,hands down!
    It is the most frugal since if you already get the newspaper you can make it for free, or get friends,neighbors newspapers...
    Other than homemade, I use the walmart brand in the box. It is cheap and works great!

    Fresh step scoopable is the best! It keeps the odors down, and seems to last longer than the other brands I've tried.

    Thanks everyone. I think I am going to try Fresh Step. Lets hope the kitties like it.

    Yep best brand hands down.

    And kitties do have allergies. I have found Tidy Cat to be the brand that they can stand.

    I prefer the 40lb box of scoopable cat litter from Wegman's Grocery Store. It costs $7.99 and it lasts a long time for my two cats (3-4 months). It seems to clump well and masks odor well.

    Personally, I prefer just good ol' fashioned shredded paper. Much easier, safer, cheaper and cleaner than powdered litter.

    I've always just bought store brand scoopable. My cat doesn't seem to be too picky. But all the raving about Fresh Scoop has me curious...maybe I'll try it if I ever see it on sale.

    A little story related to cat litter: I injured my back in February and so I found it impossible to squat down and clean out my cat's litter. Since there is only me to do it I had to come up with an alternative. I had my sister come over and move the litter up onto a table in my basement, with a chair next to it as a sort of stepping stone. Now I could easily reach the box to clean it out without bending down etc. The only question was...would my cat use it? In a different place, and a kind of weird one at that, up on a table. But what a trooper my guy is...made me so proud...he "christened" the box not more than a half hour after I moved it and has used it without problem since. Ah....what a good kitty!
    Debt-free forever!

    Ebbie--that's a good kitty.

    We use Tidy Cat Muliple cats also. Last cat was a Scoop Away kitty but with 2 Tidy Cats seem to work better. I am going to try adding baking soda.

    Saw dust and a barn shovel.....................nah, some days with our regal grand pooba of kitty cats, that feels like the more sensible solution but really we just use the no frills walmart version.

    I use the pellets that they sell in that area. It is a four week supply and you clean it just like the rest of the scoopable brands. I love the idea that it does not come out on his paws like the other brands. Only once and a while a pellet will stick but it is nothing to pick up. This also smells good.

    Feline Pine. It is pretty inexpensive ($4 a box) and controls odor better than anything else we have tried.

    I use Arm & Hammer scoopable ... it's not one of the cheaper ones but to me, it does last and controls the odor, etc. and is easier to clean.

    I also use Feline Pine and I swear by it! When I had multiple cats you could not smell the box at all. It comes in this pellett type formula and as the cat uses it; it breaks down into an almost sawdust material. It is environmentally friendly and now that I only have one cat it is even better!

    I swear by this stuff and will never, ever go back to the clay, clumping brands again!
