Carpets?  With 30 cats in the house?  No Way!  I was actually thinking about 
planting grass on my floor but I cleaned it instead.

Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors

gREATEST  and we all love it.  I especially love the fact that it is much 
lighter than clay and is biodegradeable.  I have a lite box compost pit to the 
east of the house and no smell from it all.  It is a bit dusty but so is every 
other litter I jsut keep the vaccumn out and after cleaning the boxes, suck the 
escaped bits here and there and pitch them in the trash.  Cost is a bit pricey, 
but it last longer and does not hurt your bare feet when you get up in the 
middle of the night.

ONE WORD OF CAUTION.  Blue buffalo has a litter made from walnut hulls/shells.  
It clumps and is relatively dust free, but is heavy and if you have light 
colored carpets you might have a problem.  I use walnut hulls as a very good 
dark brown dye.  AllI do is soak them in water and they dye everything they 
come in contact with.  I have quarry tile floors so not too much of a problem, 
but even quarry tile will take the dye.
