Went to the ol’ Walmart today in search of cat litter. As fate would have it, on the way I heard an ad on the radio for Arm and Hammer Essentials, cat litter that uses 100% corn fiber husks and baking soda. Call me a sucker for advertising, but I was intrigued at there perhaps being an advance in cat litter technology. When I was in the litter aisle, I happened to spot a bag for 7 bucks, way more than Special Kitty but in line with all the other major brands.
When I got home and opened the bag I was in for a surprise. The A&H litter smells fantastic. It was as though I transported to a field of West Virginia wildflowers covered in baking soda. In disbelief I gave it another full drag so my nostrils could enjoy the amazing. After I dumped it into the litterbox my entire house began to smell of a bed of flowers, as opposed to the normal smoke, BO and cat. The A&H litter is not tiny rocks, it looks exactly like birdseed.
But the million dollar question, will my animal use it? Normally every time I change the litter the first thing she does is go and do her best to foul to box. This time was no different, lets have a look…
And then Success! I didn’t take a picture of her in the act, I’m pretty sure she would kill me in my sleep.
So the new litter has worked for us, and I suggest you should try it if only for the heavenly aroma. The bag also claims to last twice as long as traditional litter, time will tell on that front.
