I am proud to be the "crazy cat lady" of my block, but as I'm getting older, taking care of my furry loved ones has become more difficult. I love coming home to a full house, but it's always something -- Ranger loves destroying my favorite couch and Misty always throws up on the same spot on the carpet. But the worst is taking care of the litter boxes. I'm a short drive from a small grocery store, but they only stock 20 pound bags, which feels incredibly heavy and doesn't last very long. Sometimes it's hard on my body, consistently lugging the bags around and changing the box out. When my kids suggested taking over my cat-mom duties, I knew I needed to find something that would make it easier for me to keep my feline friends.
I have found a home in the online community of cat lovers, and some of them were talking about PrettyLitter. It's a lightweight, odorless litter you only have to change once a month. It's delivered right to your door so you never have to worry about making last-minute trips to the store, but here's the kicker; one bag lasts a one-cat household for an entire month. I know how stinky my sweeties can be, so I was skeptical that any litter could really last a month AND be odor-free -- I mean how?? But something had to give so I gave it a try.
When it arrived, I was delighted to first discover that it was as light as they say; it's 80% lighter than other litters and boy oh boy do my joints notice the difference. But my favorite part was unexpected: the color-changing formula. The reason it's called PrettyLitter is because it reacts to a cat's urine and changes different colors to correspond with a potential health issue and easily alert you if your cat may be experiencing health problems. If the litter turns bluish-green, orange, or red, this may indicate a potential health issue and it may be a good idea to bring your cat to the vet.
But what really wowed me was the odor control. I honestly assumed it wouldn't be any different than other brands, but it truly kept my basement smelling fresh all month long. It's silica-based, so the crystals absorb odor from your pet's urine. All I had to do was scoop the poop, and change the litter once a month. I love seeing my pets, but I really don't miss smelling them. I realized the odor control formula worked after just one day; I went into the litter room and didn't have to hold my breath! The crystals eliminate moisture, which neutralizes odor, but I didn't care how it worked, I was just happy I could breathe easy again.
I'm ecstatic that I can continue to be a good mother to my little fluff balls. I'm still figuring it all out, but with PrettyLitter's lightweight formula, I only have to change it once a month, which makes my life a lot easier. The subscription means I'll never run out unexpectedly, and I don't have to make weekly trips to the store. PrettyLitter means my cats and I both get the lives we deserve.
