There were a lot of innovative new cat litters at Global Pet Expo, from alternative litters made from corn, recycled paper and walnuts to more environmentally friendly and lighter weight clay litters. One of the most intriguing new litters I saw was the new Simple Solution 30-Day Litter.
I’m well aware of the controversy around clay litter, but I’ve found that many cats don’t like the alternative litters. And no matter how much the human “in charge” may like the idea of these more environmentally friendly litters, ultimately, the cat calls the shots!
Simple Solutoin 30-Day Litter is a clay litter, but unlike traditional bentonite clay litters, it is made from attapulgite clay, a unique lightweight mineral that attaches to, absorbs and traps moisture and odor from both urine and feces. According to the manufacturer, this litter is 300% more absorbent than regular litter, and, since it’s not a clumping litter, you only have to scoop feces. Urine is simply absorbed by the litter. The litter is lighter weight than regular clay litter, and the texture is softer, which makes it gentler on sensitive kitty paws. It also tracks less than regular litter.
This product has some dust, but not any more than some of the premium low-dust clay litters, and definitely less than some of the alternative litters. A 15-pound box should last an entire month, which will mean less money spend on replenishing the entire box with fresh litter.
And it’s pink!
I liked everything about this litter, except the fragrance. The litter has a nice fresh scent, but I’m highly sensitive to scented products and can’t use anything scented around my home. As much as I wanted to like this product, I found the scent overpowering. I hope that Simple Solution will come out with an unscented version of this product. However, if you and your cats don’t mind scented litters, then this litter could be a great choice for you. And here’s your chance to try it for yourself:

Simple Solution Cat Litter Attractant and
Urinary Health Risk Indicator
Simple Solutions also sent me their Cat Litter Attractant and Urinary Health Risk Indicator products. The Cat Litter Attractant is a natural herb blend designed to help prevent and correct litter box problems. The Urinary Health Risk Indicator is a litter additive that will change color to reveal possible urinary tract health issues. I did not test these products, but saw them demonstrated at Global Pet Expo. I was impressed by the Urinary Health Risk Indicator. The dramatic color change makes it easy for cat guardians to detect problems early.
