I agree--it is dusty, and my kitten has tracked it everywhere. Also, the litter has a very odd smell--almost yeast-like. My kitten has GI issues and, unfortunately, rather smelly poos to begin with, but the combination of the yeasty-smelling litter with his stinky poos was just WAY too much. After a week of using this litter, the smell was too much for me; we changed our litter to something less smelly.
I must say I don't understand the reviews & claims that this little has low dust & low tracking. I've found the exact opposite! There was red/brown walnut dust all over every surface within 20 feet of the litter box, and the stuff tracks like crazy. My cats are long-haired enthusiastic diggers, true, but it was comparatively far worse than clay litters. So, epic fail for me.
On the plus side, it is good at controlling odor, was well accepted by the cats, and is obviously a safer choice than silica dust-laden clay litters or GMO grain products. It's also quite economical compared to clay, as long as you don't insist on frequent litter changes.
Yes--I feel the exact same way about the smell. It was just so odd and unpleasant!
I didn't like this litter at all! My cat didn't mind it but I couldn't stand the odor. It didn't matter how many times I would scoop, the smell made me feel sick to my stomach. This was the Blue Buffalo Naturally Fresh Multi Cat formula.
I've had better success with Maxx Scoop Small Spaces clumping litter but I'm trying to get away from clay litter, so I recently switched to Exquisicat Naturals Pine Litter and I LOVE it. My kitten is currently using it, and nothing gets tracked around the house. I'm slowly trying to transition my other cat into using it but we're going to finish up the Maxx Scoop before we completely switch over.
I've also tried Arm & Hammer litter, and Maxx Scoop 24/7 and I am not a fan of those either.
Just told their sales rep, at Petco, the exact same thing on Saturday. I even showed it to her, as an example. I cursed a tiny bit between my fingers.. my fingers turned brown.. My guys white paws were turning brown when I did try it.
My 2 cats don't like Blue Buffalo litter very much.
I bought 2 big bags and there is still plenty left, so I have it in one litter box (mixed with WB) and the World's Best on the other. Needless to say, they prefer to do their business on the cat litter with WB.
As for me, I hate Blue Buffalo because it does leave traces of dust. This cat litter is placed in a bathroom, so I can see it's brown trace very clearly on the white bathtub and it is a pain to clean.
