I use blue buffalo non-clumping. It's all natural and dust free.... Good for the kitty and for you. No sneezing, and no messy little litter paw prints all throughout the house. It absorbs the odor and doesn't make your cat smell like dusty washing detergent.

My breeder recommends the wood pellet litter, like Feline Pine. It's the only thing I've ever used with my Siamese, and there is NO cat box smell at my house. I like it.

Blue Buffalo made from walnut shells.
Due to one of our cats having inappropriate peeing, we had to put a litter box in my daughter's bedroom. There is very little odor, plus the cats actually like it (may be the texture or non-odor?) so they use the litter box all the time now.

The world's best was recommended to me and I seem to get a LONG use out of it because it clumps so well. It is expensive but it lasts a long time.

World's Best. It is expensive but it is the only litter that we have tried that isn't dusty. Even if they say dust free they seem to break down after a couple uses and dust goes everywhere. We tried one made out of recycled paper. Don't EVER try that one - nasty, soggy clumps that wouldn't scoop.

I might try that for a bed room. Couple of my cats are morons! I've used the Arm and Hammer and either of the two brands Costco Carries, the green container one and the 42 lbs plastic bag one.

The 42 lbs monstrosity is a major PIA! I am physical fit and some times I just can't bear to deal with the mass of that thing! If you have hand or back problems bear that in mind!

But either seems to work well and I have a lot of cats!

I use Tidy Cat Breeze litter system, they're special boxes that use inert pellets and pads instead of litter. There's a tray underneath where the pads got the urine goes though and collects there so it doesn't smell up the box. It works really well with odor control, without using any fragrances or anything. They're big plastic-y pellets, so they don't get tracked around either.
My cats are allergic to almost every type of litter we've tried so this has worked well for us. I also use Blue walnut based litter (clumping) in one box, because my cats like it better if there's one "normal" box in addition to the Breeze boxes. This is one of the only litters they didn't have skin reactions to. The Blue litter is good for odor control too.

I have 2 GDSs and one Am.PitBullTerrier mix and several indoor cats. Make sure you don't let the dogs near the cat litter--- they have a disgusting habit of eating cat poop, even if it is encrusted with cat litter particles. I use COSTCO's "LITTER PURRFECT".
It clumps and lasts longer and is cheaper than any other brand. However, I have noticed that they changed their formula recently, and the new stuff does not last as long.

Glad to hear that you will have a GSD and a kitty.... no matter what breed of kitty
(or no breed at all) they are wonderful companions, just like canines.

I use Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat, from PetSmart. Very hard clumping, minimal dust. http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=2754842
