The conversations you never think you will have and then you do as cat parents! Being a cat parent is a funny thing! I feel like we end up having conversations we would never have imagined having and they make me giggle and shake my head at the same time.
Do you have those moments in your house? Those moments you look at your spouse/roommate and think WOW we actually just talked about that….
Recently John and I had an in-depth conversation on cat litter. Of all the things to talk about we fully dove into the conversation of cat litter. We have been using a cat litter for a while and now that we have two cats it just isn’t cutting it.
We had one of those moments of walking down the stairs towards the bathroom the cat box is in and our noses curling up and going ewe…..ugh! Yep, cat litter stank had invaded our house and it was not pretty.
This is Fluffy’s do not take my picture look…he will look anywhere but at the camera and then he just closes his eyes so he can’t see me taking the pic.
Ever since we brought Fluffy inside I am sure the cats are in a competition to fill the cat box before the other one can. As soon as one of them goes the other one is not far behind which is causing us to clean out the cat box it feels like all the time.
We knew we needed to try something new and were willing to do whatever it takes to get the smell to go away and keep the cats happy.
We learned about ökocat and how it can be better than clay and couldn’t wait to check it out. I honestly had no idea that clay litter generates over 2.5 billion pounds of landfill waste every year in North America. This really isn’t something I had thought about and then I read this number and it blew my mind.
What I loved learned about ökocat is that the litter offers 7-day odor control, is biodegradable and light weight. 7-day litter control ….sign me up! Not having to run downstairs every few hours to make sure the house doesn’t start to smell like cat litter sounds like perfection to me.
Plus, knowing that it is biodegradable and not filling our landfills is amazing. We have been trying to be conscious about the choices we make and switching cat litters is an easy choice to make not only for odor control but also the environmental impacts.
I also love that they are a Washington company which makes this Washington girl very happy! Lots of love for my home state.
ökocat comes in six different variations so you can pick the one that is best for your house and cat. They have a variation that is made for long haired cats so you don’t have to worry about things being stuck where they don’t belong and being dragged around the house. Because let’s be honest having it in one area is bad enough we don’t need it spread all over the house.
They also have dust free variations that are great for allergy sufferers. This is on my list to try next. The older I get the worse my allergies seem to be. I am all in for cat litter that doesn’t plume up in a cloud of dust and make me sneeze and cough!
