too much dust

First time trying this Tidy Max LighWeight. The dust was so heavy, it made me sneeze and cough. Dust covered the entire laundry room including the new washer and the new dryer. My husband decided if we were sneezing and coughing, Aster and Kenai were too. We dumped the liter pan and cleaned the entire room. I have one box unopened and will toss it in the next garbage pickup.

Lightweight is great

The lightweight is great but the litter tracks all over the floor. It does take the smell out of the litter box. So its both good and bad!

Not as good as the regular weight

I use this Tidy Cats litter routinely, just not the lightweight version. I figured I'd give it a try, and while I love the weight, it just doesn't work the same way. It does track a lot more through the house, which surprised me. But when I watched one of the cats in the box, she's sunk in it like she was standing in quicksand. So I guess that probably contributes to it. It's not awful, but I'll stick to the original stuff.

Preferred by cats big and small

I don't know what to say about cat litter. It works great, we have three cats and scooping poo is our least favorite thing of course. This litter makes things a little less awful.

Messy Paws — Ew!

It doesn’t clump fast enough! Muddy paws leave the box tracking gross all over the house! I’ll be returning to regular weight litter, but getting smaller packages. My floors, carpet, furniture are definitely the worse for having temporarily tried this lightweight litter. Not to mention having to corral cats to wash their feet!

Too Strong - Mixes with Litter Scent X(

The scent is very strong, which would be ok if it actually overpowered the smell of the cat's waste but it instead mixes with it. It's unbearable, my least favorite in the Tidy Max Lightweight line

Pleasantly Surprised

My regular cat litter I buy was out of stock So I went with this litter as a onetime replacement with not very high hopes as “light weight” litter has been a fail for me before. Not Tidy Max Lightweight! My cats took to it right away. Much less dust and much less mess around the litter box. It clumps extremely well and stays fresh smelling! And it is much easier on my back! This will be a main stay in my auto ship!

New Tidy experience

I like everything about this product, only maybe one problem but it is only for me , I am old person, and this is little bit heavier for me. Other wise the product is very good.

Scent strong

Since the lightweight unseated was unavailable I ordered this scented but found the scent a little strong for my liking. Litter was good, just a strong scent.
