Tickled PINK: Simple Solution 30 Day Cat Litter Giveaway for You AND Your Shelter!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! We got some new litter! And you're not going to believe this... but it's PINK!
Can I try it? Can I?



KATIE:  Go ahead Waffles. As long as you're ok with doing your stuff in PINK. Doesn't strike me as very "mancatly" though.



WAFFLES:  Ok! Here I go!

KATIE:  Waffles! Have you NO manners?

WAFFLES:  What do you mean? I'm going inside the box just like you told me.

KATIE:  Yeah, in front of the WHOLE WORLD!

WAFFLES:  COOL!

KATIE:  *rolls eyes* I bet the pink litter people would have never contacted us about trying out their litter had they known that you-know-who would be doing you-know-what right here for everyone to see.


Simple Solution 30-Day Test Run
For the past few weeks, Waffles and I have been trying out the new Simple Solution 30 Day Super Absorbent Cat Litter.  Not only does it make things more colorful, this litter has some unique and impressive characteristics that we're tickled PINK to share.


What Makes PINK So Unique?
1.  No Liquid Scooping
Yes you read that right. The most unique characteristic of this litter is the fact that it doesn't clump liquids but rather it absorbs them. You just pour one box of litter into your box, and for a whole 30 days all you need to scoop is the poop. I know, it sounds crazy...but it really works!

2.  Super Absorbent
It's about 300% more absorbent than many traditional litters, which is one of the reasons it works so well at eliminating the need for scooping your #1 business.



3.  Lightweight & Easy to Pour
One of Glogirly's pet peeves is super heavy, gigantic tubs of litter that are impossible to pour without making a mess. Simple Solution is about 1/2 the weight of traditional clay litters. But the REALLY big win is the way in which they've designed the box. There are two handles, one on the top, one on the side and a very handy "easy-pour" spout. Opening, lifting, and pouring were a breeze and no HBO words were involved whatsoever.

4.  Low Dust & Paw Gentle
Although not completely dust-free, there was much less dust than many of the clay and biodegradable litters we've used before. The texture of the litter is paw-friendly and both Waffles and I took to the litter right away. ...though not at the same time. *wink*

5.  Light Fragrance
Although the litter does have a mild fragrance, it does not come off as overly perfume-y. But it is a stronger scent than some of the unscented clay litters and biodegradable formulas we've tried. When liquid comes into contact with the litter and it starts it's magic, the mild fragrance is somewhat noticeable, so like all of our litter boxes, Glogirly likes to keep them separated from the main living area of the Townhouse.



6.  It's PINK!
Ok, try as we might...we've not been able to uncover the secret to the PINK. I guess if they told us they'd have to –









So What's it Made Out Of?
Simple Solution is a clay litter, but unlike other clay litters, which are made from bentonite, Simple Solution is made from pure attapulgite clay, a unique lightweight mineral that quickly attaches to, absorbs and traps moisture and odor.  The combination of this particular clay and an exclusive odor-eliminating technology permanently neutralizes orders, as opposed to just masking or encapsulating them. We've put it to the test and can tell you that's absolutely true. Our litter room is fresh as a daisy.

Choice
While we're no experts here, we've used just about every variety of litter we can think of. It seems there are pros and cons to every kind out there. We also realize that like food, treats...well really anything, it's a personal choice and we'd never tell you what kind of food to eat or what kind of litter to, well... you know.

When given a choice of litters to use, both Waffles and I used the Simple Solution litter more frequently than one of the biodegradable formulas we have in the same litter room. And we used it about the the same amount as another clay version we have.



A PINK Giveaway for You AND Your Favorite Shelter!
The generous people at Simple Solution are so excited to have you try out their litter too, they're giving SIX GLOGIRLY readers each a 15 pound box of litter!  AND they're doubling the prize so each winner can select a US 501(c)(3) shelter to receive a 15 pound box of litter too! That's 180 pounds of PINK... WIN-WIN!

The giveaway is open to US and Canada residents, though everyone worldwide is invited to enter. Overseas winners may gift their prize to a friend or additional shelter.

  3. Pink litter....how very chic! Would love to try it tho especially because I hate scooping the big pee clumps daily. 3 cats means lots of pee.

  4. If this stuff is for real, and keeps odors in check as well as my Ever Clean, I will be ecstatic!!

    P.S. Is that the Nevr-miss litter box you have? Do you like it??

  16. I like the easy pour handle. My pet peeve is definitely handling those big bags that are sometimes half my size already. (I'm a tiny woman.)
    I will enter for my shelter of choice.

  20. We have five dogs and three cats, so anything that is an improvement on a product we are currently using is more than welcome. I've actually tried a box of this and was more than a little surprised that I NEVER smelled anything but the pleasant scent of the litter. I never thought I'd stop using clumping litter, but this brand just may get me to change permanently. It's wonderful that the company is providing so many winners, and I applaud them for also including boxes going to shelters, who can always use the help.

  27. We think it's pink because of the clay. We have lots of pinkish red clay around here.

  28. Peeing in the pink does sound cool!

  29. Yay! Open in Canada! I would love to try this stuff out with my kitties! We are always on the hunt for a good kitty litter with our 3.
    Hmmm.....curious as to why it is pink!

  30. Our Maine Coon is really picky about her litter, but this one she might actually use - very intrigued!

  31. We would definitely like to try this. So sick of scooping all day and the dust and tracking all over the house.

  32. We paid very close attention to this review because the Lady may be shopping for litter soon if you know what I mean! Dad hates to carry heavy bags up the stairs too and this is suppose to be lightweight so we may just give it a try. Oh, the Lady is wondering about using different litters, she always thought cats didn't like to have their types changed. Love Dolly

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Dolly
    You're right, cats don't often like change when it comes to ANYTHING. So with litter, we always make sure to keep a litter box or two filled with the litter they are familiar with and add in a box with the new variety.

    You can also mix litters in the same box, but for a little like this where you only have to scoop the solids, that wouldn't make sense.

    We always try to keep at least 3 boxes going. 1 for each cat plus one extra. Sometimes, when we're trying something new, we'll even add in a fourth.

    Thanks for bringing that up!

    ReplyDelete
  34. pink huh?? we do wonder if the "30day" thing would survive a LOT of cats...but mom certainly likes the idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. We love that the litter is light weight! Hauling litter up a flight of stairs is no fun! Thanks for the great review, Waffles and Katie!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love light weight cat litter! And I know the Empress will like the color as much as Katie.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Pink is my favorite color, and I'm totally excited to hear about the low-dust part! Every time I pour litter, I start coughing up a lung because it always triggers my asthma. Even if we don't win, I'll definitely look into this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Random Felines
    There are just two kitties here and we always maintain at least three litter boxes. So at about three weeks now, our Simple Solution box is still smelling fresh.

    We do think though that in a "more" multi-cat household, the litter would probably not last for the full 30 days in just one box. ...depends on how much it's getting used I think.

    : )

    ReplyDelete
  39. My kitty siblings use a crystal litter that you don't have to scoop as much, because Momma HATES cleaning the litter box! This sounds like a good idea too.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I sure would use this litter, but I don't know if my big brother would. He doesn't do anything pink like me.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Never heard of this before--and I loved the lightweight litter from Tidy Cats but they won't sell it here locally. Will look for this.

    ReplyDelete
  42. We just won a 30 day supply of this stuff from Sometimes Cats Herd You! Can't wait for it to come in!

    ReplyDelete
  43. would love to have a box of this litter

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the light weight part. Do they make a Waffles orange version? He could be spokescat!
    We'd like to try it. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The tiger boys are pretty metro, so they should be cool with pink litter! The girls would like to check it out too, it sounds great.

    ReplyDelete
  46. We mancats think we could overlook the pink color and let Cyndi believe we chose it for her. :)

  50. We really like the litter we use now, but we're willing to give this litter a try. The only thing that concerns us is the smell. If it's too perfumy for us, we may not like it. But we'll give it a try if we win. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm curious to know if it would last 30 days in our home? We have 4 kitties, and our current usage is 40 lbs./month of one of the biodegradable litters, and that's the multi-cat formula!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well with 7 of us... What the hey lets give it a go

    ReplyDelete
  53. Huh...haven't seen this in stores yet. We're intrigued, particularly the 'cow patty' kitty, Bobby. He's a bit skeptical that any litter can stand up to his contributions, but he's game, even if the litter is a girly pink hue!

    ReplyDelete
  54. i don't care about the color as long as it gets rid of the odors! i swear one of my cats is dead on the inside. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  55. This sounds like great litter and such a generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really like this cat litter. I dont think it lasts a full 30 days, but it smells great for maybe 24-26 days.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Interesting, specially that it isn't too dusty.

    ReplyDelete
  58. This looks awesome! Would love to try it out with our four kitties.

    ReplyDelete
  59. We want it! Mom continues to search for the right litter for us. She is so tired of them saying dust free, and they never are. Right now we are using Cat Attract, and we like it best. But something that would absorb the pee sounds so pawsome. Hope we win some. How's Glogirly? Is her mouth all better? Hope the two of you gave her lots of extra love. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  60. We probably won't win but we'd prolly give both boxes of litter to a shelter cos of my asthma. I don't mind TW scooping pees. MOL! BTW, TW has pics of all her cats using the box but me. I insisted on a closed box to stop pervs like her.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My boys will use pink litter, they are not too proud to use pink. They both are OCD about covering in the litter box and break up clumps of urine. I am excited to see a product that doesn't clump the urine.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Pink or no, I'd love to find a LESS DUSTY solution in our 4 boxes! No, I'm not a rescue, just a soft hearted human... :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I already ordered a box. Cant wait to try it out! With bic cats and wee ones too!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've heard good things about this litter. Simba & Madison would love to try it out.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Very cool! We already won some, and are looking forward to trying it out, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. looks very nifty - would like to try :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really want to try this! looks like it works awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Are we sure this is SAFE? Recently I have seen so many products come out on the market, only to find issues down the road.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My cat needs to try this new litter. I like the things you've said about it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Sounds very cool, we like that it's nice on our feet and not too scented. I would be great to try! ~Raine~ buzzyngabe(at)yahoo.com

  71. We and Mumsy have just been discussing how we need to make some litter box changes. We are definitely going to check this stuff out!

    ReplyDelete
  72. WOW..My fur kids have got to try this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'd love to win this for the shelter!

    ReplyDelete
  74. i have 3 cats that would be thrilled to use this

    ReplyDelete
  75. Did you know that one time ma thought about buying a pink rug for our room and when I heard that, I ran over to it and POOPED on it? Yep, sure did. Too bad it was a rug in a store. Trust me Ma wasn't happy but maybe if Molly had pink litter I would teach myself how to poop in the box. You never know. I can teach myself new things! My kitty friends would love it at the Humane Society.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have to say with 4 anytime I can scoop less...ahem...product I'm interested!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Those pink litters would be pretty in mine litter box!

    ReplyDelete
  78. We use crystal litter but sometimes the crystals are a little sharp and tough on our tender little paws. This looks like a good alternative. Hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  79. OK, so I was going to buy it, but my 2 male members of my family went, eeww! Won't leaving the pee create bacteria? But since you've tried it and like it, winning a box would be a great way to check it out. The light weight part would be great, along with all it's other attributes. I don't think there is a litter thats ever really dust free. Tv's collect dust like crazy! Usually really dusty ones show up there and there in separate rooms!! Plus I love pink

    ReplyDelete
  80. i have been trying to find this to try it, this would be so great for our 4!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Great to read your review kitties! I wrote about the litter too because I think it sounds like a great product, but have no kitties to test it out :( Maybe I can borrow Waffles sometime! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  82. We were a one cat family until 3 months ago when we rescued an FIV positive cat that was about to be put down. Now that we're a 2 cat family the litter box is more of a challenge, in more ways than we were prepared for. Baxter, our rescued FIV kitty, can't stand it when he can't cover his waste effectively. In addition to that we are working to improve his unhealthy digestive tract from being a stray and then being stuck in an isolated cage for 3 months while he was at the shelter. His waste smells extremely bad and he hates it. His depression from being stuck in that cage really took a toll on him too. So we are trying to make our home as stress-less as possible, keeping the box clean, and no matter how much we clean it the smell is still bad. We are on a quest for the perfect litter and it is SO hard. One brand after another and nothing works as promised. I can't tell you how much of a blessing it would be to find the perfect litter. Our cats are truly part of the family and we, especially our amazing cat Baxter, would be so grateful for a chance to try to free box of this litter!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Very cool looking stuff! I'd be willing to give it a try... Well, the cats would anyway. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Such a cute idea to give one to the favorite shelter!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Did someone say PINK? Every cat about town in the preppy land of Palm Beach appreciates the color pink!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I just saw this in the store the other day while shopping for litter! I considered trying it, but not knowing it's reputation, I didn't want to risk it - our cats are family, and I make these types of decisions after serious thought and consideration. Well, now that I'm seeing so many friends and family raving about it - I've just GOT to get it! And, even if I don't win this contest I'm buying it on the next "litter run"!!
