Pros: Larger granules work well in my sifting litterbox
Cons: As with all clay litters, there is some dust.
Mango’s been on this litter for his whole life, aside from before he was adopted @9weeks. This litter is long lasting, can be used for 3-4 weeks before doing a full litterbox clean and change. Relatively low amount of dust for a clay litter. As others have stated, go for the bag not the box. The box leaks litter and is very frustrating. I believe for a short time this litter was sold for a very low price($10.49 for the 40lb bag) until it made the top selling cat litter list on amazon and then the price was raised to be similar with the competition. I’m not a fan of this tactic because my cat was accustomed to the litter and I simply took the price hit because I didn’t want to put him through switching litters as a young kitten that just got home. However I did enjoy the amazing price while it lasted and the price is still not tooo bad.

Pros: Controls odor, no tracking, #1 for multi cat household
Cons: Buy online
Out of all the cat litter I tried this one works, folks!!!!
Sure it's on the expensive side but well worth every penny, nickel and dime spent on it. I'll definitely get this litter again!!!
I have 3 cats who presently reside in my household so I'm cleaning their potty box every day but even if I let it go for a couple of days this litter keeps the odor away.

Pros: Low dust, unscented, clumps well
Cons: tracking
When i adopted my cat It was the first litter I tried based on so many positive reviews. And it is really good. However, at first i had some issues with its clumping abilities, though now I know it had more to do with my kitty's habit to dig RIGHT at the spot he just used and using litter scoop that was poorly designed. Better scoop picks up those tiny pieces no problem and the box stays cleaner longer.

If your kitty is anything like mine and likes to dig in his box like a crazy miner looking for gems the clumps will break apart a little or a lot, litter is not made of cement after all :)

Both me and my cat are grateful that this litter has absolutely no scent which is a rarity these days. I tried several other litters when trying to find a better clumping one (no luck, nothing can withstand my kitty's digging habit) and some were scented and kitty would use his litter box less frequently, probably due to scent. I could tell, my cat was glad when we went back to this litter. It's the only litter that he likes to play with when I present him with clean litter box with fresh litter :) I also never see any litter dust on my black cat, which is saying a lot considering how vigorously he digs in his litter box.

The tracking is significant with this litter due to the shape and size of the granules but all the pros far outweigh this little issue. As long as Mr. Kitty is happy I'm ok with vacuuming litter every day :)
Pros: no dust
Cons: tracking, odor
This litter has fairly strong clumps, which is saying something because my cat always pees in the same spot and the litter is never allowed to dry. There is absolutely no dust  even if the litter is poured from a standing position. It does track quite a bit and doesn't completely eliminate smell, but no litter has ever been able to cover the smell of my cat's urine. Mixing in a bit of Arm & Hammer Double Duty Litter Deodorizer every few days fixes the smell problem. 
Pros: Hardly any dust
Cons: Tracks
I was looking for new cat litter when I moved last year because I noticed while I was moving that I had FINE DUST EVERYWHERE in that apartment. When I passed a finger and sniffed it, it was the Fresh Step litter smell ON TOP OF MY BUREAU!!!! Fresh Step dust was EVERYWHERE, even the ceiling had dust! Stay away from Fresh Step, God only knows how bad that FINE DUST is for your lungs! This precious cat litter is awesome because NO DUST! It does however track which I have to sweep on a daily basis but otherwise its great!
Pros: Clumps well, Hypoallergenic
Cons: Tracks, doesn't control odor
I switched to this when one of my cats started displaying symptoms of an allergic reaction to something.  We didn't know what it was but it couldn't hurt to switch to unscented litter.  I used Tidy Cats for years and really liked the way it clumped.  Precious Cat clumps just as well!  I do notice that the litter boxes smell a little more since they're not being overwhelmed by the fragrance of the litter, but it's not bad at all.  They do track the same amount as Tidy Cat.  I get these delivered to my door from Amazon.   
Pros: Not dusty, clumps well
Cons: Tracking
I'm very satisfied with this litter. There's no scent to it and it has minimal dust. It clumps very well and is easy to scoop. The clumps stay clumped, even if I miss a day of scooping; they don't break apart. It does track a bit, but what clay litter doesn't?
Cons: clumps fall apart, smells bad very quickly
I had to try this litter since it had so many good reviews. I was extremely disappointed with it. I am used to using much finer litter with my cats and did not like this stuff at all. It was not as fine as expected. On top of that it was way dustier than the litter we used before. I was looking forward to less dust so this was disappointing. I at least expected it to last a few weeks without being completely cleaned out. However, since the clumps fall apart they don't get completely scooped making it so that the litter starts to smell after a few weeks even with the clumps being scooped each day. I ended up giving up on this litter and going back to the old litter. It may not be as cheap, but it works way better.
Pros: Clumps hard, great odor control, scoops very easily
Cons: None
I just switched to Dr Elseys litter in the blue bag. I let it sit for 2 days to get an "honest" review of odor control, and was very happy. I also use Fresh and Light. Compared to FnL, Dr Elseys odor control is far superior. Urine clumps stayed little pieces of urine-soaked litter to ruin the rest of the litter. For unscented, odor control is more than adequate.

I bought the 40 lb bag on Amazon. Total price per pound comparable to Fresh and Light.

I highly recommend.

By the way--- zero dust.
Pros: Clumps HARD, sanitary, cats like it
Cons: Expensive, heavy
I discovered this litter years ago when I had a cat who was incontinent due to kidney disease, and would only use the litter box occasionally. This litter attracted her and helped her use the litter box more often, which was a sanity saver for me. After she died, I was petless for several years, and when I finally got cats again, I went back and bought this litter because I vaguely remembered having liked it. As soon as I scooped for the first time, I remembered why! It clumps HARD, making the litter box much more sanitary, and the cats never miss. Although it's expensive by the bag, it's actually not as expensive as it looks, because it clumps so hard that you have to empty the whole box much less often, so you don't have to buy nearly as much, so it works out financially. I will not use any other brand of litter but this one!
Pros: Dust free, fragrance free, clumps well
Cons: Packaging
I love this litter too and would give it 4.5 stars. It is dust, fragrance free, and clumps well. It also seems to last forever. The cost is fair to me but where I live the packaging is a horrid box. The box is heavy, difficult to carry, and it is difficult to get the sand out. I appreciate the fact it is not plastic and that is better for the environment. But I wish it was easier to get the product out of the box. The product is also hard to find and I am in Los Angeles!
Pros: Clumps great, no dust . Very easy to clean
Cons: Would have to say the price. Not cheap but still worth it
Pros: small pellets, nonscented, less dust
Cons: cost a little more than some
Really like this litter!  My cat came to me declawed & I felt this would be easier on his feet.  The important thing was that he liked it!  Tried one new litter & he jumped out of the box like he had been burnt.  I also noticed that the dusk level from the litter went down about 90%.

Pros: Clumps very well.
Cons: Can be dusty, expensive, tracks a lot.
To be fair this is the only clumping litter I have used because I haven't had cats for very long. I chose this litter based on good reviews elsewhere, and information on picking litters from books I've read.

I like that it is unscented and doesn't have a bunch of additives to mask the smell. I feel like a little smell is a good thing, since it prompts you to clean out the box often which is good for kitty. Plus perfumes can be irritants to both people and pets. The dustiness of this liter is very variable bag by bag, which may just be due to extra handling of the bags in transit.

Some issues with clumping litter I would think are kind of universal with all clumping clay litters. Those tiny pieces do get stuck in between their toes very easily and track everywhere. Kittens should not use them because they may eat it or play in it to the extent of getting it in their eyes, nose, mouth. Once I did find that my one adult cat managed to get a piece stuck in the corner of her eye. Luckily I caught it fairly quickly and was able to clean it out very carefully with a dampened q-tip.

This is a little pricier than other similar litters, but the fact that so many people still buy it says something. Locally my cheapest regular price is $16-17 per 40 lbs and $14 on sale. Cheapest I have seen on Amazon is just over $14. The few bags I have gotten there seemed way dustier than others though, but it may just be a coincidence.
Pros: Cost efficient, clumps hard, odor not noticeable
Cons: Tracks quite a bit, bigger bags may be hard to handle
This is my favorite clumping litter. Although this one is meant for multiple cat households, it works equally well for one cat. He seems to like it enough that when I did the transition, he just kept using his box and it only took 2 days to fully transition. Clumps hard and doesn't break easily.

It does track quite a bit, and I highly recommended some sort of litter mat to use with this one. However, it tracks only in the immediate vicinity of the litterbox, which is a good thing. I buy 40 lb bags, and they come in a really awkward plastic packaging (which factors into its low cost I would say). People with joint problems or strength issues may find the bigger, 40 lb bags hard to handle. It's quite easy to accidentally spill some on the ground due to the way the packaging is designed. Half a star off for that.
Pros: Clumps well, not dusty, less expensive than many brands, cats like it
Cons: Not a "green" product, has to go out with the trash
I use this litter because it performs well, the cats like it, and it costs less than many brands. I've heard negative things about how the clay is "mined" and how it's not biodegradable.

I've worked out a system where almost no litter is wasted, however. This is how it works for two litter boxes, call them A and B. Start them off with the full amount of fresh litter. Scoop at least every day. When the boxes are half full (I'm presuming cats like mine that aren't fussy about depth) dump A into B. Wash and dry A and fill with fresh litter. Next time it will be B's turn to get washed.
Pros: Clumps great, no dust, no odor
Cons: it comes in a bag
I tried this litter because of the rebate. I just used it for the first time and there was no dust, no odor and it clumps better than any other litter I've tried. It also doesn't seem to stick to the girls' paws like some other brands do. I will buy this one again but from Amazon as it's a better price than Petsmart and Petco and I get free shipping with my Prime membership. (Sorry UPS 

The only con for me is that it comes in a bag. It is a pain to pour and the girls will not leave the bag alone. They have spilled it several times so I have to keep it hidden. This could cause an issue having it shipped as well unless Amazon puts it in a box. Great litter though. The bag won't stop me  from buying it.

Pros: Low dust
Cons: Absolutely no odor control
I bought a bag of Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat litter because I had a coupon and several friends had recommended it as low dust. Overall it was disappointing. Yes, it was low dust but actually not any less dust than the Walmart Special Kitty brand I had been using.

The worst of it was there was absolutely no odor control. In the middle of a piano lesson one of my cats pooped in the litterbox across the room and the poor piano student had to smell the stink for the last 20 minutes of her lesson. I checked to see if it had been covered, which it had. The odor did not disappear until I scooped the poop and took it outside--after the piano student left. I ended up mixing it with a different brand of litter just so I didn't have to waste it (and the money I spent on it).

It may have been that I simply got a bad batch of litter. This litter is way too expensive for me to buy another bag just to test that.
Pros: Almost no dust , unscented..
I just started using this for my cats .. I have been looking for a cat litter with little to no dust . 

I poured this in the box from a standing position . There was NO DUST CLOUD .  That does it for me . This is the first litter I have used where there was not a cloud of dust when poured into the box ..

I do not care about tracking or any other issues simply because there is NO DUST CLOUD  .   I love it ..
