This post and giveaway is brought to you by Cat’s Pride.
I never intended to have a cat. It just sort of happened.
One day at work, the Supervisor called and said he found a stray cat and did I want him for the office. There was a pause as I thought about this, but in the end, I said, “Sure!”
An hour or so later, this beautiful black cat with amazing green eyes arrived at the office.
We named him Jinx. Suitable for a midnight black cat; right?
Jinx is by far the most social cat I’ve ever encountered. He greets me at the door every morning when I arrive to work. His green eyes reflect the street light, otherwise, the door is just a dark shadow. As the sun comes up a little earlier, there are now mornings I see Jinx pawing at the door so excited to welcome me.
It warms my heart.
Even though Jinx lives at the office, I want him to have the best possible care. Our routine is streamlined, and while it requires some time and effort on my part, I feel he’s worth it. He’s a great companion during my day.
The first part of my morning is giving Jinx a morning pet. Then we change his cat litter. One task definitely is preferred over the other!
The litter box has been my greatest challenge in having a cat at the office. I need to stay on top of it and keep it odor free.
Even changing it every morning before crews arrived, I was still hearing, “the office smells like cat!”, “did you change his litter box?”, “Open the windows and let that cat smell out!” Oh, my goodness.
I was lugging around pounds of litter each month trying to find something that eliminated the cat smell.
Another part of my routine with Jinx is I disinfect desks every morning before anyone arrives. I have always done this, but when I noticed dust paws on desks from cat litter, I’m not going to lie, I sorta gagged a little. So now, I make absolutely certain I do my wipe-downs.
Since I see Jinx on the desks a lot through the day, I know his night routine must also include this table prancing.
I recently received Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® litter to review with Jinx. It promised to help me deal with the cat litter box issues.
The first thing I noticed is that it is lighter to carry, 50% lighter than conventional clumpable litter. To give you some perspective, a 10-pound container is comparable to 20-pounds of cat litter. For me, that translates to a lot less work getting it from the parking lot to the cat litter box.
I like that it comes in a “jug”. This gives it more ease when carrying and pouring. It is also compact so storage requires less space.
When pouring the Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® litter I noticed there was low-dust. Our old litter created a dust storm no matter how gently I transferred it to the litter box…even scooping it with a cup was a mess.
That low dust also carries over to when Jinx uses the litter box, his paws aren’t tracking the cat litter box all over the office.
The thing I absolutely love most is that Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® Ultimate Care litter is super-clumping. Oh, my goodness, where has this stuff been!
I can actually SCOOP…no scraping the bottom of the box. I also love how lightweight the waste is. One brand we used clumped, but it was so freaking heavy it actually BROKE my poop scooper and trust me, that was not a conversation I wanted to have.
Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® Ultimate litter is available in two formulations, Scented and Fragrance-Free, formulated with highly absorbent minerals and no fillers, guaranteeing 10 days of odor control, the strongest clumps and low dust and tracking.
The litter box smells clean. The Crews don’t complain and I don’t bolt from my desk with a can of Febreeze when I see someone heading into the office.
Coming in after the weekend, when Jinx’s litter box has not been changed for two days, still leaves the office smelling clean. It’s a huge improvement.
And Now I don’t worry about the litter box contaminating my desk during the day, not even when Jinx insists are a game of “Cat and my Mouse”.
Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® litter says that it is “Changing Litter for Good”; I couldn’t agree more!
