"Cat Chatting" with Cody and World’s Best Cat Litter™!!

Cody: Hi every furry and Happy Friday!

It’s “Catvocate Cody” here, and have I ever been one busy cat! Since I posted my review of new Advanced Natural by World’ Best Cat Litter™, my inbox has been leaking  FLOODED with questions about litter box usage!!! (You will have to excuse the leaking reference, I have peeing on my mind!) 
To help me reply to these questions I have invited my furiends at World’s Best Cat Litter™ to help me answer them.

World’s Best Cat Litter™: Hello Cody, thank you for having us, we’re excited to answer any questions you may have for us.

Cody: So, without further “pawsing” I am happy to present you with the first question that I received:

Why do cats pee and poop outside the litter box? Ohhhh World’s Best Cat Litter™,  we can’t wait for your reply!

World’s Best Cat Litter™:  There are many reasons cats might choose to do their business outside the box. Often times it’s because the box isn’t properly cleaned and the litter needs to be either scooped more or changed completely. As you know cats have high standards when it comes to cleanliness!

If they have problems accessing the box, feel cramped or don’t like to share it with other cats, they may show their displeasure by simply refusing to use it. Stress as a result of a major change in the cat’s daily routine can also be a factor. Anything from a move to the introduction of a new family member (human or pet) can lead them to stop using it. 

If these don’t seem to be the reason, consult your vet to determine if it’s a medical issue.

Cody: That’s some great advice! My human sister has been having this problem with HER kitty! I am going to make sure that she sees this!

When I was a kitten I was super quick when it came to learning about how to use the litter box. For kittens that aren’t as quick as I was, how do you teach them about using the litter box? 

World’s Best Cat Litter™: The good news about cats is that they all naturally understand how to use litter (i.e. sand-like substance = bathroom). So the key to teaching them how to use the litter box is to start immediately upon their arrival into your home. Just fill the box with litter and gently place your kitty inside of it so it can start getting used to the smell and feel of the litter. For the next few days continue introducing your kitten to the box whenever it might need to go (i.e. upon waking up, after eating, following playtime etc.) and it’ll quickly learn to use the box on its own. (Please note that kittens must be at least six weeks old to use World’s Best Cat Litter™.)

Cody: Sounds like a plan to me!  That is what my mom did with me and it worked like a charm!

My Mom keeps my litter in an enclosed litter box in her bathroom. A number of kitties asked me: Where’s the best spot to place the litter box?

World’s Best Cat Litter™: Sounds like your mom really knows what she’s doing! The bathroom can be a great spot for a litter box. Ideally you want to choose a clean, quiet, low-traffic area where your cat can do its business privately without having others disturb it. It’s very important that your kitty can easily get in and out of the box so remember to provide ample room for easy access.

Cody: You are absolutely right! Do you know that if my Mom enters the bathroom and she seeks that I am “busy” she will apologize to me and promptly leave the room? I have her super well-trained!

How do you prevent cats from tracking litter throughout the home?

World’s Best Cat Litter™: Crunch, crunch…there’s nothing quite like the sound of stepping on some litter before dragging it throughout the floor of your home — never a pleasant experience. The best way to avoid this problem is to purchase a special mat to be placed right under the opening of the box. This way the litter granules get trapped in the mat and away from your carpet. It’s also important to pick a litter that helps you avoid tracking. Litters with a fine consistency can be easier to track out of the box while large granule litters can be tough on a cat’s paws. That’s why World’s Best Cat Litter™ has a balanced granule size that helps avoid tracking and the abrasiveness of large pellet litters. 

Cody: That’s what my Mom has too!

I am the only kitty at my house, but I have readers who would like to know: Do I need to have a separate litter box for each of my cats? 

World’s Best Cat Litter™: The general rule is one litter box for each cat in your home. However, if your kitties don’t mind sharing and you’re limited on space, you might be able to get away with only one. Just watch out if they have to go at the same time!

Cody: I’m not a sharing kinda guy, and I think that many kitties aren’t. I would go with your one box per cat rule. That sounds like the best bet!

Since I am a “Catvocate” For World’s Best and I have been using it for a few years now, I KNOW it’s the best on the market. What do you tell people when they ask: What’s the best cat litter on the market?

World’s Best Cat Litter™: We’ll admit that our response will probably be a little bit biased… but in all seriousness, we feel strongly that cat owners prefer a long-lasting litter that safely eliminates odor while simplifying cleanup. World’s Best Cat Litter™ accomplishes all of these because it’s the only litter that offers concentrated power to help you maintaining a cleaner litter box. Who doesn’t want to waste less litter and less time cleaning the box? We also feel different cat owners (and cats) prefer different types of litter. That’s why we offer 6 natural choices – everything from scented and multiple cat to high performance clumping. Feel like giving it a try?

Cody: So there you have it! All of your URGENT litter box questions have been answered by the EXPERTS at World’s Best! I want to put my paws together and THANK THEM for taking the time out of their busy schedule to reply to your questions! Thanks so much my furiends! You are the best and hey, so is your litter!

World’s Best Cat Litter™: The honor was all ours Cody, thank you again for giving us the chance to lend a helping paw. Please take care of your mommy and try to stay out of trouble! 


Cody: I sure will! Now if you will excuse me! I have  impawtant business to take care of that I just can't hold any longer!





"Catvocate Cody" signing off for now!



In full disclosure:I was not compensated for this post. I am a "Catvocate" for World's Best Cat Litter and I agreed to take part in an interview for today's guest post. The pleasure was all mine and I truly ALWAYS use their litter!

  1. Cody - excellent interview! I have recommended World's Best to a few people who really needed to know about it and the no-tracking alone is the biggest reason they love it. Since Alice came to live with us, there is another thing over here. She loves to claw at the bag. It has all sorts of tiny holes, but the bag is so sturday it stays intact! Who knew that would be a plus!

    1. MOL!!! Alice is a silly girl! You should do what my Mom does. She puts my litter in a large metallic can (it is LARGE), ready for what it says on the front? "DOG FOOD!" MOL! That's where she keeps my litter! Thanks for reading!

  3. We've been using World's Best Cat Litter for years. This last bag has been the first that has seemed a little "off" and we were wondering if they changed their formula across their whole line. Thanks for being a catvocate!

    1. Hi my furiends!! If you tell me how you think it was "off" maybe I can write to my contact and see if we can find an answer? I just recently bought a bag that had a different scent (It was their original scent) but I loved it, it smelled like a baby smells lol. Seriously, let me know what was wrong and I will see if I can find an answer for you.

  4. That was a great answer Cody. We have litter boxes all over since there are so many cats in here. And everyone seems to get their business inside the litter box. Have a great day.

  15. That was a great interview Cody. I have to admit I don't use the litter box unless I have to though. I much prefer to use the nicely dug soil in the greenhouse. Mum has to go out and scoop it regularly.

  16. That was super good Cody and you really did cover things quite nicely!

  17. What a great interview, Cody! We've always gone with the "one litterbox per cat + one extra litterbox" rule here.

  18. We've been using Tidy Cats with Glade, after winning some, and it was working really well. Now Tidy Cats has a "light litter." So far both the humans and we are liking it. Though there are eight of us we only have five litter boxes, down from six. Most of us like the two downstairs and use them the most. Thanks for good info on this other litter.

  21. We gotted some of this letter and now the Human mixes it in with my old litter. We might transition to 100% one of these days.

    Say Cody, I hear them Tigers is playing some pretty good ball. Things aren't quite as happy around here as they were last year at this time. Sigh.

  23. What a great Q and A Cody! You sure did cover a lot of great topics! At our house, we could not possibly have a litter box for each cat, so we do share. But, the humans are so fanatical about keeping our boxes clean that we don't even notice the difference. They scoop about a bazillion times a day and we just keep it coming!!
