Just became a cat owner a few months ago and thought I had done all my
homework on the pros and cons of owning a cat, but there's always something
you miss. In my case, it's the dust from the kitty litter that has settled
over everything in my home. Is there anything that can be done to eliminate
this most annoying problem. And before you even think of it, I ALREADY OWN
A FEATHER DUSTER AND VACUUM CLEANER

I keep telling friend it would make more sense for her to use a
different type of litter. She lives in an apartment with refuse
collect once every 2 weeks.

What kind of kitty litter do you use? I have had a cat for 20 years and
I don't have a problem with that. I use the Fresh Step litter. It works
fine.

"Dust" the litter outside. Use 2 storage bins or 5 gal pails- pour the
litter back and forth from one pail to the other a few times. This will get
rid of most of the dust. Hold the pails as high as you can just before the
litter starts blowing away. The more times you dump the litter back and
forth the more dust you'll eliminate.

Kitty Litter dust can be harmful to humans as well..
we have 4 cats and now use one that is 99% dust free...
Your friend MUST change the litterbox at least wice a DAY! and I use a
Lysol room spray to get rid of the airborne germs from changing the 2
boxes..
and I wear a filter face mask as well.
I got some litter that was dusty and may have gotten sick from inhaling it.
BTW, Hi Count
Thanx for the 'heads up' on you know who...
OMG, you've got the M15 guy here too???
He's another paranoid idiot!!

I've used litters that are supposedly 99% dust free and still feel like
I'm in Pigpen's dust cloud when I fill the litter box. Can anyone
recommend a brand of scoopable that really is low on dust??

In another group Phil had an idea take the litter outside and shift it
back and forth betweeen containers till the dust is out



I'd thought about doing something like that, or stirring it around in
the litterbox while waving the vacuum cleaner hose over it to suck up
the dust.

You could also add a hepa filter machine by it will collect the dust and
smells


Hmmmmmmm, I have one of those, but I also wear a face mask and spray a Lysol
air germ killer before I enter the catbox room...that helps too.

The, "clumping" type is more dust free than the other.....Easier to work
with, too.......
