I’m always careful about changing to a different brand of cat litter. Cats can be funny about where they do their business, and sometimes, changing to a litter they don’t like can lead to them avoiding using the litter box altogether – something none of us wants to deal with.
I use clumping clay litter. I would prefer to use something more environmentally friendly, and don’t think I haven’t tried. I offered the new litter in one box, and kept the old litter in the other. I also tried a gradual changeover, adding only a small amount of the new litter to the old litter (in one box only). None of these approaches worked. My cats always made it clear that clumping clay litter was their preference, thank you very much.
When the PR agency for Cat’s Pride’s new Fresh & Light litter contacted me, I was intrigued. The litter is clay based, but is said to be 25% lighter than other clay litters with the same number of uses. Who doesn’t hate lugging heavy litter jugs or bags? The litter comes in two versions, scented and unscented. I asked to try the unscented version – I don’t recommend scented litter for cats. Cats’ sense of smell is much more sensitive that humans’, and scented litter can be a sure-fire way to turn cats away from using the litter box.
When the litter arrived, I filled one of our boxes with it, and left the other one with our old litter. The litter looks like regular clumping litter, but definitely feels lighter. The 15 pound jug filled the box to a higher level than the same amount of regular clumping litter usually does. Allegra and Ruby both took to it immediately. In fact, they seem to prefer it to the other litter.
It scoops easily and the clumps don’t stick to the side of the box. It has good odor control, although we’re not a very good test case for that aspect, litter box odor doesn’t seem to be much of a problem for us. It tracks must less than our current supposedly low tracking brand.
I like this litter a lot, and once I’ve used up what I have of the other brand I’m currently using, I’m probably going to switch. We definitely give this litter two thumbs and eight paws up!
