You may have seen my Litter Robot blog post where I talked about our kitties, but I didn’t talk about them in a lot of detail. We have two cats: Ben (more commonly called “Buttons”) and Spike. Ben is a ragdoll cat that I got from a breeder. I had always wanted a ragdoll cat! He’s a great cat, but when I thought he was getting lonely, I rescued Spike from a local shelter (this is him below!), and now I would never even consider getting a cat from a cat breeder.
Spike (who was almost called Irwin, Tucker or Pumpkin) was the poopiest looking cat ever…seriously. He and his siblings had apparently been found in a gutter in Philadelphia, and he had a huge mohawk of hair going down his back (hence the name Spike). He was a ratty, nasty, not-scared-of-anything, SUPER SWEET kitten and I couldn’t leave him. He’s been the most amazing cat, and I always say to the animals that if the house is burning down and I can only save one of you furry things, Spike is the one. I’m just kidding of course, but he is such a special cat to me. When I brought him home it was clear that he was taken from his mom too early, because he spent most of his time snuggling with me while sucking on his stomach. It sounds super gross, and it was kind of weird, but I pitied him so much. He’s always been my little fur baby. I feed him WAY too much, and spoil him a lot, but I think he deserves it!
There are so many shelter cats out there, and obviously we can’t rescue them all, but after learning about the Litter for Good™ program, now I know we can help in some way! For every green jug of Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® purchased, Cat’s Pride® will donate a pound of litter to animal welfare organizations across America, which makes me feel really good about purchasing this brand.
If you’re like me, you need the cat litter to WORK. I mentioned in my Litter Robot post that I use another brand of cat litter, but after learning about Cat’s Pride® and knowing their philanthropic efforts to help animals, I will definitely consider switching! If you want to switch cat litters, I suggest doing it VERY slowly so that your cats can get used to it. As you can see from the picture below, it’s a much more fine than other clumping litters, so make sure you slowly and gradually add the litter to your cat’s box in case they’re finicky.
Honestly the jug is much nicer than the cardboard box of litter, because I can pour it right into the Litter Robot instead of using a scooper in the Everclean. I haven’t tried this long enough to really speak on how well it works, but if you’re interested in my experience just shoot me an email and I’ll let you know how I liked its clumping abilities!
Where to Find It:
I found this litter at Walmart, but I almost missed it with Walmart’s aisle merchandising!! I found it right at the start of the litter block, and of course had my little helper with me. The company has a store locator on their website, so this is probably the easiest way to search for it in your area. It was $8.62 at my local Walmart, which is more than $10 cheaper than the other cat litter I’ve been using.
