Product Review: Fresh Step Cat Litter
Fresh Step litter
I have three daughters, and growing up, they all loved cats and kittens. Actually, they loved all animals. It would have been perfectly fine with them if they could have shared their rooms with a panda bear, a fox, a giraffe, a lion, a tiger, a few monkeys, and even an elephant! Luckily, they settled for cats and dogs. They did have a lot of other animals, but they lived in the barn – not the house. Well, except for the rabbits. They did have a few bunnies, but luckily, the rabbits used the litter box just like the cats did.
If you’re a cat lover, I don’t have to tell you that one of the greatest things about felines is that they’re clean. They like to be clean. They spend hours every day grooming themselves. They’re super easy to litter train, so there’s no worry about cleaning up accidents. Cats are so clean, in fact, that most refuse to use a dirty litter box. If they visit the litter box and find it too soiled, they’ll take their business elsewhere, if you know what I mean. That’s a great reason to keep your litter box clean.
Another big reason to keep the litter pan clean is to avoid strong, unpleasant smells. You don’t want to smell soiled cat litter, and you certainly don’t want visitors to your home smelling it, either. Few things smell worse than wet, dirty kitty litter. So what’s the solution? What’s the best cat litter?
From my experience, Fresh Step cat litter is one of the best on the market. Fresh Step litter has carbon in it. Carbon has the ability to absorb and neutralize odors – even tough ammonia odors like cat urine and cat feces. Fresh Step litter literally acts just like a sponge to soak up unpleasant smells and to neutralize them. Fresh Step litter is specially formulated so that each time your cat stimulates the litter, the odor-neutralizing carbon is activated. Your cat naturally stimulates the carbon litter every time it steps into the litter box and every time it digs and scratches the Fresh Step litter. Gee, guess that’s why it’s called Fresh Step, huh?
I don’t know why other litter companies haven’t duplicated this, but Fresh Step is the only litter that contains carbon! The fact that carbon is so effective on odors is no big secret, so it seems like every cat litter on the market would put it in their litter products. But they don’t!
Fresh Step cat litter comes in a Scoopable litter that clumps together when it gets damp, so it’s easy to remove. Premium clumping cat litter means no more raking and raking through the litter in the box to find the soiled litter. Fresh Step litter makes it very easy to spot. And because the soiled litter clumps, you actually use less litter in the long run because the clean litter is automatically separated from the wet or soiled litter when you use the litter scoop. Fresh Step Scoopable litter comes in regular, free, and multi cat. If you have more than one cat using the same litter box, I definitely recommend the multi cat. Some cats hate sharing a litter pan with other cats, but with Fresh Step, this wasn’t a problem for us. We had two cats happily using the same litter box with Fresh Step, and we definitely found it to be a premium clumping cat litter.
Fresh step is also available in Scented Scoopable cat litter. Each time your cat steps, digs, or scratches the litter, the fragrance of Lavender Valley or Mountain Forest is released. My favorite of these two is the Lavender Valley. It has a very clean, fresh scent. The Mountain Forest is nice, too. Neither scent seems like it’s just trying to mask an unpleasant smell – they both smell good without being cloying.
Fresh Step has a clay litter, too. Just like the scoopable litter, it contains carbon. It’s also 30% lighter than the leading cat litter.
Fresh Step’s newest product is Fresh Step Cat Litter Crystals. It’s a lightweight and extremely absorbent crystal litter. The unique formula of the cat litter crystals is five times better at eliminating odors than the leading clay litter. Also, Fresh Step Crystals are soft, so they’re easy on your cat’s paws. Their small size makes the litter box easy to clean, too. The clean litter crystals sift right through the litter scoop! I haven’t tried the cat litter crystals yet, but a friend has, and she gives it glowing reviews!
There’s also another great reason to purchase Fresh Step cat litter. The makers of Fresh Step litter help support the ASPCA. Millions of homeless and unwanted cats will end up in animal shelters this year, and Fresh Step wants to help these unfortunate felines. When you buy Fresh Step litter in the packages with the orange top, Fresh Step will donate fifty cents to the ASPCA when you enter the special code from the box. The proceeds will help homeless cats find a forever home or will help furnish a needy owner with kitty litter.
Fresh Step litter: It’s scoopable, contains carbon, and helps a worthy cause!
