    I am beginning to believe if you're litter is dry and dusty and kicks up a cloud everytime they scratch, you are doing it wrong. Period.

    Because I am enjoying having good litter!! no more dust clouds and not noticeably smelly. Maybe just a tad. but not amonia, maybe i should sniff lower to the floor....hmmm. But much improved! [​IMG] I bagged up my excess shavings and straw into old feed bags and add them back as necessary. And Much more conservatively! Letting the poo be my guide!!! Thanks guys. Much less stuff floating around in the air. Gonna have to blow out the other half of the shed when weather permits. The tools are a mess. But I would not expect to see that much dust in a short time again...we'll see. lol
