Try New Simple Solution Super Absorbent 30 Day Cat Litter!! Give-Away! Six Winners!

Hi all! Glad you stopped by!

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 on board in the litterbox! Welcome Simple Solution Super Absorbent 30 Day Cat Litter!


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 book  Cody's box!!



And....

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)

  3. I've seen it in our local stores and had wondered about it, thanks for the review. You touched on all the points that are important. Glad to hear that does absorb the odor and gentle on their paws.

  4. Well, this definitely sounds like an interesting litter. We'd be interested in trying it...though we are concerned about the scent. We're not fans of scented litter.

    1. In my opinion, the scent isn't strong at all, but scent is always an individual preference. If you win, you could always try it and if you didn't like it you could donate the rest!!

  5. Sounds like a good alternative to my current litter!

  7. We're always ready to try out different litters, and Truffles actually prefers scented litter to non-scented! She's such a girly girl :)

  9. I like this review especially cos it answers the question about mixing it with your old litter. We do that a lot here. We don’t like scented litter so hope the scent is minimal. I don’t think I’ve seen it in our ShopRite yet.

    1. Thanks so much CK! The scent isn't overpowering at all!! In my opinion it is rather subtle but everyone is different. Remember, it shouldn't be mixed permanently, just to get the cat adjusted to the change :)

  10. If the scent is not overpowering, I would love to "mix" it with my CatAttract!

  11. not sure the pink is a good idea cause it would be tough to spot any blood in the urine.

    1. Brian I initially thought that too...then I read Ingrid King's review of the litter....Simple Solution sent her something (don't remember what it was right now because my mind is shot), but it is something that you can use to test the litter. Wait...I will look it up right now. Here, this is copied directly from Ingrid's post (I didn't write about it because I wasn't sent this but you brought up an excellent point.) Here you go: "Simple Solution Cat Litter Attractant and
      Urinary Health Risk Indicator
      Simple Solutions also sent me their Cat Litter Attractant and Urinary Health Risk Indicator products. The Cat Litter Attractant is a natural herb blend designed to help prevent and correct litter box problems. The Urinary Health Risk Indicator is a litter additive that will change color to reveal possible urinary tract health issues. I did not test these products, but saw them demonstrated at Global Pet Expo. I was impressed by the Urinary Health Risk Indicator. The dramatic color change makes it easy for cat guardians to detect problems early."

  14. This sounds like something we'd like to try!

  15. Anything that helps cut down on the tracking and the smell has to be a positive!

  16. Cody, I have my litter in the garden...but this looks like the second best. Good luck for everyone! Thank you for your support, while Granny was busy with her busy schedule. We appreciate that very much. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :)

  17. We tried this litter a while back, and thought the way it controlled odor was absolutely magical. We hope your winners enjoy trying it, too.

  18. So you just mark on your calendar when to change it or when it no longer absorbes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Since it is 30 day litter, I would just mark it on the calendar but you made a good point, if it seems as if it isn't absorbing before that, (which I highly doubt), then change it earlier. I haven't used JUST the 30 day litter in the box yet, but I would think if it says "30 Day Litter" that it had BETTER be! lol

    2. Thanks! Will have to think about checking into it for the boys.

  19. Very interesting review. I was asked to try this out too but have not done so yet. It sounds intriguing, but with my gang of 7 I can't imagine not scooping urine clumps. Maybe I will try it out one of these days and mix it with my current litter like you did. I am very wary of changing litters... simple litter rule in my house - if it's not broken, don't fix it!

    1. Deb thanks! I know you know that if you mix it (it should be temporarily mixed, or the results won't be exactly correct as mine weren't)....I still am going to use it "straight", soon, before I try the next litter on my list. That being said, you have SEVEN CATS!! I understand your concerns! You could have one box mixed with the new and the old and then maybe a couple with the old or something? I DO understand the "if it's not broken, don't fix it" too though

  20. Would be great to win, also good for the earth as it would reduce my cat's carbon footprint! and every little bit could be a simple solution, right?

  21. We'll try any new litter in an attempt to control odor. With eight cats that is an everyday challenge. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
