We use Tidy Cat scoopable litter and have ever since we got Momma Kat 17+ years 
ago.  We scoop twice a day, everyday and extra if someone drops a bomb.  While 
Tidy Cat does track worse than others, it does not have the dust that the 
others have.  So far, I don't think we have had any issues from it and I am 
sure the kitties like having a cleaner smelling box.  We have tried the wheat 
stuff, and the pine (OMG, that stinks to high heaven) and some other things but 
always go back to scoopable.  Unfortunately, when you have high numbers you 
have to use something that keeps your house from smelling like one giant poop.
