I have problems with migraines, which means I can't handle strong scents. This particular forumla DOES have scent, and is strong enough to mask odors, yet doesn't give me headaches and migraines. My cats also do not suffer from it, one suffers from feline herpes and two others have eye problems where a lump will appear above their eye if the litter box smells too much like ammonia (vets don't seem to want to diagnose or deal with it, but it appears to be genetic since one cat is the mother of the other and they both have the same problem). It seems to be low dust, though when I dump it into the cat litter box a cloud of dust comes up. That may give someone migraines if they are allergic to dust, like me (and if I don't air it out I do get a headache but not full blown migraine, but it can and has happened), but putting a fan in front of the litter box while pouring and having a window or door open will help air it out so you don't suffer. Anyways, when the cats use the litter box with this particular litter, it doesn't seem to make them sneeze as much as other litters like Tidy Cats, which is why I think it has less dust, or at least less agitating dust, than other litters. When cleaning the litter box they do sneeze, but again not as much as other litters. (This is important to me because of the herpes cat who has uncomfortable sneeze fits that can trigger her other symptoms, but this litter does not trigger her other symptoms like Tidy Cats did.) I am in love with this litter, which sounds silly I know, and I hope walmart doesn't change a thing about it! If they do, I may be afraid to use it again and it will be hard for me to find another good litter. (The other brands give me migraines, and some have silica dust which are absolutely dreadful for the eye problem cats and herpes cat! They really make them sick!) By the way, for those curious, due to the sick kitties I clean the litter box usually once every other day or once every three days, but I can't let it go a week or they get really sick. I change the litter once a month, and would recommend doing this to other people who have sick kitties, sensitive kitties, or for cat care in general as well.
