I have 7 cats and I have used Scoop Away for many years. It's the best clumping litter and it absorbs and smells very well. Only trouble is that it IS dusty! My kittens who have their own box in their taming crew do not like it. It makes them sneeze, so I had to change their litter to a wheat based. No dust, clumping is good for the solids, but it does NOT absorb the smell.
