I have two persian cats with respiratory problems. I need to find a completely dust free litter immediately. Tell me of your experience.

We've switched to all natural litter and its dust free. Its a wheat product (search for Swheat Scoop on Amazon.com). It doesn't have the dust that the standard clay litter produces but it does have the necessary clumping quality. It was a very easy transition for our cats as the size and feel of the litter is similar to the standard variety. There are other natural litters made from pine, etc.

There is no dust-free clay cat litter on the market and do not believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise. 99% dust-free just means that 1% of the cat litter will rise out of the box when you pour it into a noxious cloud. Store-brand cat litters are unbelievably dusty.

If you want dust-free, you need to go with a natural litter as JC says. Swheat Scoop is dust free, but I do not favor that brand as I find it to be less absorbent and somewhat messy and smelly. I prefer corn (e.g. World's Best Cat Litter) or pine based litters--e.g. all Feline Pine litters are dust-free. I prefer to use the clumping type which you can just drop in your regular box, but some swear by the pellet type, which requires a special box for best performance. There are also paper-based litters which are certainly dust-free but I can't vouch for their performance, some find them messy and some cats reject them.

We have three cats and we use Worlds Best cat litter. Be careful what you use to clean the cat box also. What you use to clean can be the cause of the respiratory problems. Any air spray and sent stuff use to freshen up rooms will cause respiratory problem too. Any constrution work being done can also cause health probl

I have 9 cats and I use Nature's Miracle clumping corncob based litter for my 9 (yes, nine) litter boxes. I also like Clump N Flush but it's more difficult to find. Nature's Miracle has a citrus scent while Clump N Flush is unscented. Both smell all right, clump nicely and are virtually dust free. There is some tracking but corncob litter is basically soft unlike clay based litter. So floors do not get scratched. As I have a disability, I needed a lightweight litter and these fill the bill. I've tried many brands, including Swheat Scoop, World's Best and Feline Pine Clumping, and like corncob litters the best. They're all lightweight but I think Feline Pine keeps odor down the most though. To clean the litter boxes, I use an enzyme based laundry detergent and rinse well...very well. There is a vet's website (Dr. Lisa Pierson) where a video of the proper way to clean a litter box can be viewed: http://www.catinfo.org/litterbox.htm

You might also want to check out the Smart Cat Box (www.smartcatbox.com) and if your cat accepts pelleted litter, the Tidy Cat Breeze System (search on Amazon)

I've tried Swheat Litter for multi-cats and think it produces tons of dust. Don't understand how so many people are using it and saying it's almost dust free. What am I doing wrong? I'm producing more dust with it than with my Clay litter!

I don't think it's you doing anything wrong. I had the same experience with the Swheat Scoop! Tons of dust all over everything. Clogged the plug-in air cleaner in just a week! I have very nearly tried them ALL, and ALL cat litter is extremely dusty. Even all the so called natural litters. The absolute worse was the Blue Buffalo walnut based, and the World's Best should really change their name to the World's Most Awful.

Kahoots Pet Store's own brand is truly dust free. I know it is hard to believe. Soon they
said they are changing their litter. I hope it will still be dust free.
