Tesco Clumping Cat Litter
Advantages: Reasonably cheap, has carry handle, clumps together to make life easier
Disadvantages: Doesn't neutralise odours, gives off dust but to be expected for the price
I get through a lot of cat litter (not me personally, perhaps I should rephrase that?!). I should say my cat gets through a lot of cat litter, which is basically because he is a house cat, and as such has to use his litter tray all the time instead of just when he is indoors.
Cat litter isn't something I like to spend a lot on, considering what it's going to be used for, so as long as my cat is happy and isn't put off using his tray, I'll pretty much try anything. I don't like varying it too often though because I think if your cat is in a routine they're more likely to stick to using their tray and avoid any accidents or mishaps.
I usually use Tesco value cat litter because it's excellent value and my cat has no problems with it. The past few times I've been to Tesco, however, they've not had their value litter so I've been faced with the dilemma of picking an alternative that isn't going to upset my cat (new carpet + cat accident = unhappy fiancé!), but also doesn't cost the earth.
This cat litter is quite expensive compared to the Tesco value version, but is also good value if you're comparing it to the others on the shelf. It costs in the region of £1.99 for 8 litres. This will last you a few weeks so I can't really complain that it's "expensive", but considering it does the same job it's annoying that I have to pay more (the value brand is £1.44 for 10 litres).
The litter comes in a yellow bag with orange writing and a picture of a cat on the front (in case you mistake it for something else?!). It also has a carry handle which I have to admit is quite useful because with the larger bags I can sometimes struggle to lift them without a handle. This makes it a little easier to pour so you're less likely to spill it all over the floor.
The litter itself is grey in colour, and just looks like grit/stones. Once you've filled the tray and your cat has used the litter, it 'clumps' together so it's obvious it needs cleaning. The litter goes slightly darker when wet (discreet way of saying 'when he's had a wee'!), and clumps together so when you scrape it with your scoop thing, it is removed quite easily.
This litter doesn't have any added extras.....those of you without pets might wonder what on earth you could expect from all-singing all-dancing cat litter, but there are brands out there that claim to neutralise the odour or be dust-free. This one is a fairly basic version though, so you'll have to resort to good old air freshener if your cat makes a stink, and it does give off a bit of dust which isn't really a problem apart from presumably this settles on your surfaces and floor (and sometimes in your hair if you're bending down!).
All in all, this is a good basic cat litter that does the job but doesn't cost the earth.
Summary: Good value basic cat litter
