For the past few months Cody and I have been on a mission. We have been trying out various brands of cat litter, and over the next month we will be sharing our opinion of a couple of them!
Many of you know that for MANY of Cody's seven years on this earth, I was using another brand, and that for the past couple of years Cody was a Catvocate of that brand. Cody and I still like that brand quite a bit, but due to packaging/size changes, formula changes, price increases, to name a few, we have decided to investigate other litters. Change is GOOD, right? But CONSTANTLY having to scoop litter clumps isn't!!!
Cody and I were thrilled to have been contacted by the super nice folks at Simple Solution. They asked if we were interested in testing their litter, and we jumped
Most cat owners would agree that there are a minimum of FIVE requirements that a cat litter must meet in order for it to be deemed "effective." They are:
- The litter must help keep their home free of cat litter odors
- Simple Solution is the only cat litter on the market that stays odor-free for 30 days
- that it require little maintenance
- There is no scooping of litter
- Simple Solution litter is 300% more absorbent than traditional litters.
- that it is lightweight and easy to use
- it is about half the weight of competitive standard clay litters
- their cats must love it.
- Cody has no complaints!
Now, my review isn't quite like others, because for the past 2 months I was STILL mixing Simple Solution litter with my "old" litter. My results and testing I am certain are a little "off" because of that. That being said, my experience was positive. Even mixed with my "old" litter (and as of this writing there is MUCH MORE Simple Solution in Cody's box than our old litter), I noticed among the other benefits listed above, a marked difference in odor, a positive difference! There IS less tracking and less dust as well. More importantly, Cody has adjusted to Simple Solution Super Absorbent 30 Day Cat Litter quite well!
I love that the box has instructions for NEW users such as myself:
Most cats transition easily to 30-Day litter. For finicky felines, we recommend the following steps:
- Pour a 2-inch layer of 30-Day litter into a clean litter box
- Add a layer of your current litter thick enough to cover the 30-Day litter
- Use less of your current litter each time you clean the litter box
Simple Solution is a clay litter. The unique attapulgite clay is so effective, it doesn't need to clump-so you don't have to scoop urine (just poop!!). Attapulgite clay is a unique, lightweight mineral that quickly attaches to, absorbs, and traps moisture and odor. (Other clay litters are made of bentonite, which doesn't have these benefits!) It is also a rather pretty color, see the texture and color for yourself!
Other claims that 30 Day Litter makes that are true are:
It is COST EFFECTIVE! It truly DOES last longer than other commercial litters which enables cat owners to spend LESS money on litter! Money is tight for many of us so this is an important benefit. This is a KEY reason why I find it to be so intriguing and beneficial for my litter needs.
It is GENTLE on your cat's paws. The litter has a soft texture and it is infused with aloe which makes it easy on the paws!
MY OPINION: I am quite satisfied overall with Simple Solution 30 Day Cat Litter. The ONLY thing I missed was the "flushability" factor of my previous litter. But, when you don't have to scoop urine and are only scooping poop, you are spending considerably less time scooping, PERIOD which makes it that much less of an issue. Also, the "other" litter has removed "flushablity" from their packaging because that claim is now open to debate.
For me, the scent wasn't overpowering or unpleasant. I found it to be just right. As I mentioned earlier, Cody likes it and has adjusted quite well. That, the convenience, the money saving factor, and ease of use makes it a winner in my
Simple solution cat litter is available in 2 sizes, 9lb and 15 lb. Price: $10.99 to $15.99--LESS than my previous litter. ( I have the 15 lb box and it has lasted AT LEAST 2 months)
