Waffles' Smells are Ringing Bells GIVEAWAY - Win Tidy Cats® New LightWeight Ammonia Blocker and $1,000 Container Store Gift Card


This blog post is sponsored by Tidy Cats®.



WAFFLES:  Do, Do-Do.  Do, Do-Do.




KATIE:  Seriously, Waffles. Enough already with the Do Do-Do. I know what's going on and that smell rings a bell.


WAFFLES:  You mean like a doorbell? Or Christmas bells? It's not even Halloween yet, Boss.

KATIE:  Waffles, just Do, Do-Do your business and move on. You're not the only one who has to use the litter box, you know. The quicker we make this, the less I have to smell–


WAFFLES:  But Boss, Glogirly says our new litter blocks the smelly stuff. Something about ammonia, whatever that is.



KATIE:  If only they could make a litter that would block you from my peace and quiet.















WAFFLES:  *raspberry*

KATIE:  WAFFLES!


WAFFLES:  Wow, someone woke up on the wrong side of the litter box.



No Ammonia Smell? Really.
One of the fringe benefits of Katie and Waffles' whole food diet is a greatly diminished litter box smell when it comes to #2. But there's been little we could do about the ammonia smell that often lingers behind when it comes to #1. We've been very pleased with how the new Tidy Cats LightWeight with Ammonia Blocker has performed. When they say it blocks ammonia odor for two weeks, they really do mean it. 

We have three litter boxes, each located in different areas of our home. We tried out Tidy's new litter in two of them and even left one unscooped for a few days more than our normal scooping schedule. Both of the Tidy boxes remained odor free...even the one with more clumps hanging around than normal. 

Lightweight...aaahh!
With just two cats, we don't go through nearly as much litter each month as some of our friends. But even still, the weight can really add up. With a standard-weight litter, we go through about 40 pounds every 3-4 weeks. And we order it online, 120 pounds at a time! (Apologies to our UPS man.) Tidy's lightweight litters cut that amount in half. 


Dust, Tracking & Scent
Many lightweight litters can tend to be a little dustier than their standard-weight counterparts. We were thrilled to discover this is not the case with this new formula. The dust was very minimal, even when pouring the litter into an empty box. 

Tracking was on par with virtually all the litters we've tried out. There's always going to be some just outside the box, but it's not excessive and in our experience, doesn't track outside the bathroom into the other rooms at all.

We'll be honest, we're not fans of scented litters and that's something we've shared with Tidy Cats before. We would LOVE it if they were to offer a fragrance-free formula, lightweight or not. So when Glogirly went to the store to pick out our litter for this test and review, she opened up all of the new Ammonia-Blocker jugs so she could compare the various scents. One, in particular was very subtle, with a mild, clean and fresh scent. It's the Tidy Cats LightWeight with Glade Tough Odor Solutions, 'Clear Springs'. It's just as mild at home as it was in the store and we've been pleasantly surprised at how much we don't even notice the scent at all. 

If you're sensitive to fragrance like we are, we highly recommend this particular formula, though we also understand if you suffer from asthma or allergies, you may need to stick to a strictly fragrance-free litter.

  3. Why do I get the feeling Katie would miss Waffles if he and his loud personality weren't there?!?

  4. I'd love to try it. I'm sure my boys would like it.

  5. I hate scented litters too. Some of them stink worse than....well, you know. I'm glad the new Tidy Cats is working well for you and Waffles and Katie. We go through a LOT of litter around here

  7. Evelyn has very strong smelling pee, but she would never admit that. I have to practically scoop right behind her.

  8. Haven't tried this litter yet, but will now. We use Arm & Hammer Clump 'n Seal lightweight and have been very pleased with the performance, especially how dust-free it is.

  9. This is a great giveaway. I'd rather have lightweight litter, but its almost twice the cost of regular. I'm disabled and it's so much easier to lift the lighter stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  10. This is a fantastic giveaway!
    Would love to try this!

  11. I haven't tried this yet. I think that we have litter odors under control, then it becomes rainy outside - and it turns out that I don't.

  12. Wow this is a great giveaway! Our Mommy is really interested in the litter as ours sometimes gets the ammonia smell.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow! This is fantastic!!! We love Waffles raspberry.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. OMG, this is amazing! With three cats, including my senior girl, Moko, who goes through more litter than the other two combined, the litter alone would be a great prize. I went to the Container Store for the first time a couple of months ago and now it's a regular stop for us (along with IKEA, which is nearby). I have a bit of a wish list from the Container Store and winning this gift card would be beyond amazing! Fingers and paws crossed at our house.

  15. Glogirly has seen our new space and knows how much we could use a gift card to the Container Store - it is SO TINY in here!!
    I, too, would love it if Tidy Cats would make a scent-free litter. And a reduced dust one, too.

  16. * Helpless giggles * = Waffles raspberry!!!

    OK OK I know at least two shelters who could use this I AM SO IN!!!!!!

  17. What an amazing giveaway! If the scent of this litter is Glogirly-approved, it must be mild enough for us, too.

  23. We recently adopted our kitty Snowflake from the shelter within the past two months and she has been such a wonderful addition to our home. We have two kids, 5 and 2, and they adore her. Im so thankful that we have a shelter just down the road from our home, we have been actively going in and helping out when we can so this $1000 if we are lucky enough to win will be donated to our shelter. Thanks so much!

  26. With fosters we always need litter!

  27. I've recently decided I'm getting too old to lug 40-pound bags of clumping litter up and down the stairs. I'll have to give this a try! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is certainly a very generous giveaway! I've also been struggling with the 40lb bags I use for litter, so I'm curious about the comparability to this LightWeight litter.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This would be great for my Lizzie and Leo! Thank you!

  33. love your blog and thanks for the chance to win. --suz in ohio, plus muppet, louie, emma, jake and julia (one who came to our farm as a stray; four from the local shelter).

    ReplyDelete
  34. wow - that's an awesome giveaway. mom tends to buy for cost considering how much litter we go through - though as she lugs it up the stairs she does contemplate the upside of light weight MOL

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh wow, that looks interesting, thanks fur sharing we'll see if it's available in the UK.

    Big hugs

  38. The first time we had guests at our home after bringing Angel and Chuck home, they both went #2 in their litterboxes as we hoomins sat nearby chatting. Thankfully, our guests were used to living with stinkbomb animals, but it was a bit embarrassing all the same. Now, I don't care since the house belongs to the cats; guests come and go.

  39. Since we are moving, we could totally use the gift card :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Waff, you are totally getting sassy with the boss there!

  43. We haven't used Tidy Cat litter in a long time...maybe we should give it a try again!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh my goodness, they are precious! Katie's coloring is beautiful, sort of like my girl, Kira that I found in my garage with her mama and brother, Kai. This would be so helpful as I took in an additional 3 babies back in April! starla.batesATyahoo.com

  48. 3 litter boxes? Very impressive! With 4 cats in the house, we sure do appreciate the ammonia blocking feature of Tidy Cats.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My cat will only use Tidy Cat in his litter box. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I could definitely use that container store gift card!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Not dusty? Then mum might try it again. But she has several months of regular litter to use up first.

    Plus, where do you get your litter boxes with the high sides with just the low cut out area. Mum hasn't seen them in a store.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Nice giveaway! We use the lightweight 4-in-1 variety, and it has the new ammonia blocker (and no added scent). We love it and our humans love that the boxes don't smell as much (once we remember to cover).

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whoa! TW loves the Container Store! She's looking to reorganize the condo too and actually throwing away HER stuff for a change. If we were to win the Tidy Cat coupons, we would pass.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh that is so great this is lighter! It can be so heavy changing the litter box. So excited to try this!
