PrettyLitter is a revolutionary litter with a super lightweight, odor-free formula and an easy to use subscription service that ships right to your door. No more lugging of bags from store to car and into your house, and you’ll never have to worry about running out. More importantly, PrettyLitter has features that take litter to the next level.

PrettyLitter changes color to alert you to potential health problems

Cats are notorious for hiding illnesses, so it’s often hard to tell if they are sick or in pain. PrettyLitter changes color to tell you when your cat has a potential health issue, so you can get them help before it becomes an urgent medical situation. This could save you money on expensive vet bills, not to mention it could save your cat’s life.

“Having lost my cat to an illness, it was a heartbreaking experience watching her get ill without having been able to help her early on,” says Daniel Rotman, the CEO of PrettyLitter. “I created PrettyLitter to give cat owners the power to keep daily tabs on their cat’s wellbeing.”

Blue Litter:​ If PrettyLitter turns blue or dark green, it means the cat’s urine has a high pH level. This means the cat could have a urinary tract infection and/or might be at risk for developing bladder crystals and stones.

Orange Litter:​ Orange litter is an indication of abnormal acidity. The cat may be experiencing metabolic acidosis or kidney tubular acidosis. It can also mean crystals and stones are forming in the bladder.

Red Litter:​ Splotches of red means there is blood in the cat’s urine. Kidney disease, clotting disorder, bladder cancer, and bladder inflammation are all possible reasons.

Superb odor control

Say goodbye to that “litter box” smell. PrettyLitter’s super absorbent silica gel eliminates smells by trapping urine inside (not clumping around it) and drying out feces. By drying out your cat’s waste, PrettyLitter is obliterating odors even before you have a chance to scoop.

Since PrettyLitter absorbs and then eliminates moisture, you won’t have to keep replenishing litter throughout the month. Typically, a single bag will last an entire month for one cat.


Household friendly and safe

PrettyLitter is made from silicon dioxide, which can be found in nature inside various living organisms. It is non-toxic, inert, and doesn’t expand in the presence of moisture. It is household friendly and safe for cats, even when they breathe or ingest it.

PrettyLitter is virtually dust-free, making it a great choice for cats (and humans) with asthma or other respiratory issues.

Remembering Ruby: That Time When Ruby and Allegra Had a Bug Hunting Adventure


As I’m mourning my beautiful little girl, the memories keep flooding in. Some make me cry, some make me smile, and every single one is precious. I’ll periodically share some of these memories so you can take a trip down memory lane with me.

The photo above goes back to October of 2014. I was watching TV when all of a sudden, I noticed both girls on one of the end tables. They were utterly fascinated by a bug under the lampshade. I was thoroughly entertained watching them try to catch the bug – I don’t know who had more fun: the girls or me! The level of teamwork they displayed was remarkable; I swear I could hear them strategize on how to best approach this hunt. Continue reading…

Review: Catit Cabrio Carrier


While the carrier may not be your cat’s favorite place, it is an important part of your cat’s life, and it can be vital in an emergency.  And it’s up to you to convince your cat that spending time in the carrier feels good. Unfortunately, for most cats, the only time they’re in a carrier is when they have to go to the veterinarian, so the association with carriers is often a negative and stressful one.

Sunday Quotes: Self Care


Another slightly more wordy than usual Sunday post, but I felt that it’s an important topic right now that deserves more than just a quote.

In these challenging times, taking care of yourself has become more important than ever, both in terms of your physical as well as your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Remember that the old adage of putting your own oxygen mask on first is true for a reason: you can’t help others unless you’re in good enough shape to do so. Continue reading…

Mews and Nips: Cat Family Found in Abandoned Car Finds Forever Homes


We need all the feel good stories we can get these days, and this one hits the mark. Earlier this year, a sanitation worker in East Harlem, NY heard meowing coming from an impounded car. He discovered a mom and her kittens nestling on the back seat. He took the little family to Little Wanderers NYC, where they were fostered until the kittens were old enough to be adopted out. Mama LaBelle was patiently waiting for someone to give her her own forever home, all the while giving everyone in her foster home lots of love and snuggles. Last week, her dream came true: she found her own permanent home. Visit LoveMeow for the full story and adorable photos of LaBelle and her kittens.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…

Weather Menders Now Available as an Audiobook


This post contains affiliate links*

I’m not a big fan of Sci-Fi, and I rarely read Fantasy, so when Debra Denker first approached me two years ago about reviewing Weather Menders, a Cli-Fi novel about reversing climate change through time travel, featuring a time-traveling cat, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I certainly didn’t think I’d be drawn in to the point of being unable to put the book down. And now, this wonderful book is available in audio form, narrated by the author. Continue reading…

A New Study Says the Novel Coronavirus Can Infect Cats, But There’s No Need to Panic


Guest post by Ingrid R. Niesman, MS PhD

Yesterday we ran ran my piece titled One Cat Out of Million is Not a Trend: A Science-Based Look at the Unlikely Risk of COVID-19 Infection in Cats, which explained my analysis on ACE2 and cats, which supported the current belief that it is highly unlikely that cats could get infected by the novel coronavirus. The same day, Biorxiv, an open source platform for researchers to put up early and tentative results, published a paper by researchers in China that claimed that cats and ferrets can be infected. Papers published on Biorxiv are not peer-reviewed and represent data that might never eventually become published works. “Junk science” was a common response I received as I reached out to colleagues.
