I recently switched a 2.5g nano from kitty litter/sand to sand over potting soil/peat and the difference in growth for rooted plants is pretty amazing. The kitty litter just provided a good exchange for cations, but didn't seem to be providing them. These crypts have doubled in size in just a few weeks in the potting soil/peat.
When used as a thin bottom layer, I don't have a negative thing to say about kitty litter. I'm becoming a much bigger fan of potting soil, though, for a cheap substrate.
