When it comes to preventing litter box odors, frequent scooping is one of the best ways to do it. Since I work from home, I usually scoop practically the minute Allegra or Ruby finish doing their business. I realize that that’s not practical for everyone, but at a minimum, litter boxes should be scooped twice a day, and the entire box should be dumped out, cleaned and refilled with fresh litter once a month.Continue Reading
When it comes to litter boxes, cleanliness truly is next to godliness. Cats are fastidious creatures, and being forced to use a dirty litter box is, at best, uncomfortable for them, and at worst, will cause them to eliminate outside the box. At a minimum, boxes should be scooped twice a day, and even more frequently if you’re home.
I’m a big believer in “the right tool for the right job,” especially when it comes to something you do multiple times a day.Continue Reading

When it comes to litter boxes, the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness” most definitely applies. A dirty litter box is a common reason why cats will eliminate outside the box – and can you blame them? How would you like to use a toilet that hasn’t been flushed in days?
I am meticulous about scooping our litter boxes. Since I work from home, I usually scoop as soon as Ruby or Allegra have deposited something in the box, so litter box odors aren’t much of an issue at our house. But even if you’re not home all day, at a minimum, the litter box should be scooped twice a day.Continue Reading

SmartCat All Natural Cat Litter is a lightweight clumping litter made 100% from grasses grown in the USA, with no added chemicals or fragrances. It is virtually dust free to minimize respiratory problems for both the cat and the pet parent.It has a creamy, sand like texture. It quickly absorbs urine, which helps reduce tracking outside of the litter box. The odor causing components of the urine are trapped in the clumps. The litter begins dewatering the clump to minimize the biodegradation (bacterial growth) that causes odors.Continue Reading
When I was approached by the makers of Almost Invisible Cat Litter, I was intrigued simply by the product name. I was also interested because this product is distributed by http://www.Anti-Icky-Poo.com, the largest distributor of Anti-Icky-Poo (isn’t that a great name?!), which has been my ” go to” cleaner and odor remover for decades. I first started using Anti-Icky Poo when I managed a veterinary hospital, and believe me, we dealt with our share of icky odors and stains.
Since Allegra and Ruby have a bad track record when it comes to accepting alternative litters, I declined to review Almost Invisible Cat Litter, but I wanted to introduce you to this product.Continue Reading
When it comes to cat litter, I have yet to find a litter I like better than Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat. This litter has been our go to litter for many years. It clumps better than any other clay litter, it has virtually no dust, and, most importantly, my cats like it. And yes, I’m well aware of the controversy around clay litter, but I’ve found that many cats don’t like the alternative litters – certainly, none of mine ever have. 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.Continue Reading
