If you follow us at all on any of our social media, then you know we have 3 cats that are the absolute loves of our lives. Really, they are my (Gail) loves, but Mario converted pretty quickly when he was lucky enough to marry me LOL!!
Our cats all have very predictable yet individual personalities. Peach is The Queen, she’s older, would be perfectly happy just sitting (napping) on my lap for the rest of her life. She meows when she wants attention (often) and taps you with a paw if you aren’t giving her enough.
Koko is the cattest cat we have. She is super curious (nosy), gets in every box, smells and investigates everything. She’s very social when we have guests and is very gentle with the other cats.
Mo (short for Mofo) is a little bit of a mystery. He stays in one room most of the time, but comes out to show us some love every day. He meows in the middle of the night for (what we believe) no reason and headbutts with the best of ’em.
As individual as they all are, they all have one thing in common — they have never had any littler box issues!! I’m the one with the issues! They have put up with me as I have tested and tried different brands and types of litter.
** Although we did receive a free sample of Pretty Litter and we may receive compensation for this post, all our opinions are our own.
I’m not a huge fan of dust or cat pee odor, go figure. I’ve found some great litters that can do one or the other. But it always comes down to me being fed up with something. Usually it is the dust. As quickly as you clean up the layer of dust on and around the litter box, it just appears the next day. Or, you just see it billowing up as you are scooping it up. I mean, thanks but no thanks on the dust in the face.
After we moved, and didn’t have a special space for the litter boxes, I had to get fancy covered boxes that look like furniture. I thought that would contain the dust and it still didn’t!
So, I finally listened to a friend and tried out Pretty Litter. For those that don’t know, Pretty Litter is a monthly litter delivery service. The litter is made of little silica crystals, kind of like those little pockets you see in food containers. The crystals absorb the urine and the smell.
The litter arrived quickly after I ordered it. Over the weekend, I dumped out the old litter, cleaned out the litter boxes and tossed in the new Pretty Litter. I couldn’t believe the 2 bags filled the whole litter box. It did not look like that much.
Of course the cats had to sniff around and see what the commotion was about. Koko was the first one to go in. She kicked and pawed at it, did her business and walked away.
The next day as I cleaned out the litter box, there was no urine smell or poop smell. It was as clean and fresh as it was the day before.
Fast forward a few weeks, and the Pretty Litter is still going strong. The cats aren’t having any issues with it, and I’m loving that it is cleaner, less waste because it absorbs the urine, and no smell and no dust!
The next shipment of Pretty Litter arrived just in time. I could tell by the end of the 4 weeks, the litter itself was at its max absorption. It was still soaking up the urine, but there was a yellow tinge to the litter. No worries, it still didn’t smell!
And when I was ready to change out the boxes, I just dumped it in the trash on garbage day, rinsed out some remaining crystals in the bins and refilled the bins with the new bags of Pretty Litter.
Now we tell everyone about Pretty Litter. I love that it is delivered monthly. I love that it does not cover the room with dust. I also love that the crystals will also change color if your cat has a health issue. Pretty Litter describes on their website what the color changes mean and when to react.
Overall, we are super happy with this product. We recommend it to everyone, and even our cat sitter asked us what it was. She’s also now a faithful user. I hope she shares it with some of her other clients, because I’m sure they will absolutely love it!
