    Pros - Lightweight
    Cons - Dusty, clings to paws and doesn't clump that good
    As with some of the others that have done reviews I couldn't have agreed more. It may be lightweight but that doesn't make it good. I had a cat that had Intestinal Lymphoma and urinated a lot. I tried many different cat litters and nothing really worked to keep up with her. I still have my almost 2 yr cat Willow and even with it, it will still cling to her paws, don't clump well and is very dusty. And the price is just crazy. Are you paying because it is lightweight? Because to me it is not that great. I prefer Scoop Away. It clumps right away. No mess on her paws. So less mess on my floor coming out of the litter box even with her kitty mat under the box.

    Pros - Clumps great, smells nice, easy to lift.
    Cons - Tracks a bit
    I have used the Glade version of this since it first came out and it works great.

    Has a pleasant scent and controls odors well. People don't even know I have cats until I tell them or they see them.

    The light weight makes it track a bit but all litter tracks so no big deal. I keep a little Dirt Devel nearby to suck up the tracked litter.

    Overall satisfied.

    "Surprised and pleased"
    Pros - Clumps like a champ
    Cons - None. Really
    I ended up getting 4 pails of this on black Friday at Petsmart after the manager kindly let me have these for the $7.99 sale price. I wasn't thrilled about the lightweight litter but a deal's a deal and we always need litter. I had VERY low expectations going in. Low as in almost none.

    WOW. I was so surprised. It clumps so nicely and it's so easy to remove the clumps. No digging, no work. They just float free in the sea of unused litter. it took me half the time it normally does to scoop. Seriously! I've tried other lightweight litters before with less than stellar results but this one is really good. I have it in my most heavily used box (Henry's favorite) and he loves this stuff too. It's easy for him to bury his business in with less effort on his part too. I might keep it around just for his favorite box.

    Well played Tidy Cats. You've got a winner here in our house. Now I'm glad I decided to get the 4 extra buckets! [​IMG]

    "Very expensive and didn't perform as well as cheaper lightweights."
    Pros - Easy to carry, clumped urine well, cleaning box was a joy
    Cons - But--did not over solids or thir smell well at all. Litter stuck to cats paws.
    Outrageously expensive. Light to carry. But this stuff actually made me fear for my cats health...it's made out of what feels and acts like a clay/styrofoam mix, and my cats paws would actually be coated in it. When I wasn't there to clean it off, the act of cleanung his paws reduced the pieces to a mud-like consistency that would up costing everywhere he'dwalk or jump. For the price of one box I can buy TWO of a different brand. It's not as light, but the "other" brand outperforms Tidy Cat Lightweight in every, every way. I do not recommend this brand of litter.

    Pros - good clumps, good odor control
    Cons - very powerful smell
    When I first tried out Tidy Cats Light Weight Litter, I was unsure because of it's very powerful smell, which made me cough a lot. Many people use scented litter to cover up the smell, but scented litter can actually be a turn off for many cats. Luckily, my cat didn't mind. After my cat used this litter, I noticed that it has decent clumps, and clumps very quickly. It also has pretty good odor control. If your cat doesn't mind scented litter, this could be a good litter for you, and vise versa. Tidy Cats Light Weight Litter was a fair litter, and I give it 2 and a half stars. ~
