I love my two cats (soon to be three). Both were rescues. The first, Bocca, was a stray I found abandoned under a tree in my yard when he was just a few days old. He was crying so loudly and so I went searching for the source. I left him for about 20 minutes to see if his momma would come back for him, but she never did. The vet said he probably wouldn’t make it without his mother, but I proved him wrong by nursing him round the clock and that kitty repaid me by growing up to be a hellion. The second kitty, Harley, was adopted from our local Humane Society. Thankfully, she’s much more laid back than her older brother. As the mother of two cats and the mother of one human, I’ve learned that there are certain things you don’t skimp on by buying the generic version. A few of the items on my “brand name only” list include mayonnaise, ice cream, coffee, and cat litter. Yes, cat litter.In short, buying cheap cat litter means your house will smell like cat poop. Buying good cat litter means your house won’t smell like cat poop. Is it worth the extra few bucks? Uhh, yeah.
It took me awhile to find a cat litter I could trust, but during a recent trip to Sam’s Club, I discovered Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield. Here’s how the odor shield process works:
- Activated carbon – The carbon in the litter traps odors. Most litters use carbon, but Fresh Step doesn’t stop there…
- Chlorophyll – Plant extracts are a natural filtering agent that trap any odors left behind by the carbon. Those green speckles in the Fresh Step litter? That’s the chlorophyll.
- Essential oils – Essential oils (both paw-activated and moisture-activated) have been found to stop the growth of odor-causing bacteria, as well as inhibit mold growth.
- Why triple action? – The triple action power of Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield helps reduce bacteria. 53% of cat owners indicated that they were concerned about bacteria in the cat box. That number climbed to more than 60% among cat owners with children.
Right now, you can get DOUBLE Paw Points rewards from 9/9 to 10/31 with every purchase of Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield. Check out the Paw Points section of the Fresh Step website for more information about how you can use the points to earn “PAWsome” stuff!
I’ll leave you with an example of something I might not be willing to do with my cat if I used a cheap cat litter. It’s called “cat bearding,” and it basically involves holding your cat up to your face to resemble, well, a cat beard! See me with my cat beard below and a Vine video here. It’s a crazy new trend that’s sweeping the nation – or at least sweeping cat owners who don’t mind getting up-close-and-personal with their kitties!
