Rated 5 out of 5 by Junebug Best litter I have ever used!
I have read many of the reviews, and wonder if they are all even reviewing the same product. Several people say the dust is horrible and gets all over everything. Others say that there is no dust at all, which has been my experience. Is there a problem with standardization and quality control? Also some say it clumps poorly, while others like it's clumping qualities, and for me it forms the hardest and most durable clumps of any litter I have tried. I have even dropped clumps and had them stay totally intact! I have noticed almost no odor, although I do mix it with a small amount of crystal litter which I find dries the feces much quicker and eliminates odors. Overall this is the best litter I have ever tried, though I recommend mixing a few cups of crystal litter in with the Blue Buffalo walnut stuff. Happy scooping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardengirl345 Much better than clay litter...but takes a little getting used to!
I am not a fan of the clay scoopable litter since it is heavy, (usually) very dusty, and difficult to find a truly unscented variety.
I decided to try the BB walnut litter on a whim while at the local pet shop when a BB representative talked me into it. I am really pleased with this kind of litter.
None of my nine cats have any problem with the new litter, so everyone transitioned pretty well. I still have a traditional clay-litter box available so they have a choice.
The Blue Buffalo walnut litter is less dusty, but there is still some dust, especially after it's been scooped repeatedly - I assume from the walnut pieces eventually breaking down.
I scoop every day - a requirement with as many cats that live here. This litter works really well if you make a habit of scooping frequently; too much urine in the box will lessen the tightness of the clumps.
At times I have added 1/2 c. of baking soda to each box, which really reduces any leftover scent. I hate the perfume-type scents of clay cat litter, so this is a marked improvement.
The reason I say it takes a little getting used to is because the litter is...brown....which looks a bit odd at first. It's hard to distinguish cat turds from the litter if it's not very bright when you're scooping.
Overall, yes! Fantastic cat litter. This is a regular staple in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubba Excellent results-Read transion guide to new litter
I've had excellent results with this litter. There is low odor and dust. The litter clumps well and is easy to scoop.
I would recommend that people follow the Transition guide on the bag, when transitioning from an old clay litter to this. My cats are finicky and seemed to want their old litter back, but once I followed the transition guide, they had no problem with the new litter.
The bags are so much lighter and easier to use than the traditional clay litter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MollyandLily stays clumped
This litter stays clumped... doesn't fall apart when I clean the box. I like that it's made of walnut shells.
We love Blue Buffalo ... glad I tried this litter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tinus Pretty Good
This is the first time I have used this litter. I chose it because I wanted to get away from the corn-based one I had been using. Overall I am happy with this one. Superb odor control and not really any messier than the one I had been using (World's Best Cat Litter). The reason I gave four stars is because the clumping could be better. It seems to clump ok, but when you scoop it, it sort of falls apart. But I will stick with it, since I rather deal with that than use a corn-based one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by motherto4 would not recommend
we have 4 cats. None of them like this litter. My husband and I are disappointed in it as well. There is more dust and we expected, the clumping is not as good as our clay litter and it still sticks to the cats paws and gets tracked out of the litter boxes. We ordered 3 bags and are sending the 2 unopened bags back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by beabz We likey
I have 4 cats and 2 litter boxes indoors, so I need a good litter. Trust me, this works. We have tried most of the Blue litters (pellet being the worst) but this one is probably the best. We get nice clumps, very easy to scoop. It hides the odor very well and isn't dusty (we had previously used Tidy Cats the red and yellow pail). This just looks better in the box (as its color camouflages number 2's if you haven't scooped yet) and works well. Plus it's biodegradable which makes clean up so much easier. I didn't give the full 5 stars because of the price, it seems a bit much for something made of walnut that will literally get pooped on. However, I can sometimes find in store coupons or find it on sale in store or Chewy has decent prices on it too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LunaCat It does what it says without wheat or corn. My cat has IBD.
This litter clumps very well and odor control is very good. Only con is the dark color. I wish they could make it lighter in color as when it gets on my light floor it shows. Wonderful litter otherwise.
