Purina Tidy Cats Pure Natural Clumping Litter - My Review
My Rating of This Product as a Long-time Cat Owner
A few days ago I was compelled to write a review of this product (which I never have before!) because it is so phenomenal. Then I remembered Hub Pages is having a product review contest this month. The time is now, there’s no better time than the present and procrastination leads to further procrastination, right? So here I am. I love this product!
I have three indoor cats. Two are long haired, one is short haired. Nevertheless, they all tinkle and poop. And they all share one potty box. I know….. you’re told to have one box per kid, but come on….. Anyway, I scoop the poop and clumps twice, if not three times a day because I love cats, but hate cat stink. Plus they won’t go in soiled potty boxes and I certainly don’t want them looking for other places in my meager 1,360 sq. ft. home to do their business!
Up until now, I have sworn by Tidy Cats Clumping Litter for multiple cats for years. However, lately I’ve noticed I have to replace 14 pounds of the 27 lb box of fresh litter every other week. Not only that, I start to smell cat urine before a week is up, when I normally clean the box and add fresh litter mixed with baking soda. That’s a no no. I pride myself on having a beautiful home that does not smell like cat. Yeah, I have to keep up on the clumps of hair my long hairs seem to think enhance my home’s décor, but cat stink is not allowed!
I clipped a coupon (yes, I’m an avid clipper!) for a new product marketed by Tidy Cats, Pure Nature. I thought I’d give it a try. The first time I brought my coupon with me to the grocery store, the package cost $11.99. I had a one dollar off coupon, and wasn’t convinced so I went with a less expensive brand and was Ok with it. I was a little trepidatious because cats (much like me) do not like change, but it worked out.
The next week I found myself needing to buy litter once again. So, again I carried my coupon – just in case the new product was on sale. It was: $9.99 for a 12 lb. bag. With my dollar off coupon, I paid $8.99 to test the product. The bag clearly states on the front that one twelve pound bag is the equivalent of thirty pounds of Tidy Cat’s clumping litter. For this starving writer, it was certainly worth a try!
Purina Tidy Cats Pure Nature is made of cedar, corn and pine and it clumps! It has only one downfall that I’ve seen: the litter left on the floor once the kitties emerge from the bathroom seems to be more apparent (maybe only because it doesn’t blend with the carpet in the room!). However, the shards will be less hard on the vacuum cleaner than little balls of clay. I keep carpet in my cat/laundry room so as to catch what my cats traipse out of the litter box before emerging into the rest of my house.
All in all, the fact that this litter has a great natural smell, absorbs odors like no other I’ve tried and my cat’s haven’t resisted the change, I will buy this product moving forward. Even when not on sale, the yield far extends anything else I’ve ever tried. I will save money in the long run, you don’t smell cat when you enter my house and we are all happy, happy, and happy!
Bottom line: I highly recommend this product to anyone who has indoor cats. Whether one or several, this product is worth every penny! Oh, yeah….. it’s also environmentally friendly – a huge plus for Ms. Greenjeans! Purina Tidy Cats Pure Nature. Make the change; it’ll do your shnoz good!
