WAFFLES: Hey Boss! What's this stuff in our litter box?
KATIE: Uh... litter? Clean litter?
WAFFLES: But where's the dust storm? Isn't there supposed to be a dust storm? Glogirly just poured it in a minute ago. Where's the dust storm?
KATIE: I'm as surprised as you, Waffles–
WAFFLES: And it doesn't smell funny either. It doesn't smell like flowers. It doesn't even smell like YOU!
KATIE: Watch it, Waffles.
WAFFLES: BOSS!!! Did you know this new litter can make you SMART??? With a much as I use the litter box, I'm going to be a genie!!!
KATIE: You mean, genius?
WAFFLES: That's what I said! Genies!
KATIE: Waffles, this is a blog post, not Harvard. Better manage your expectations on the whole genius thing.
SmartCat Litter Really IS Smart!
SmartCat is one of the newest biodegradable litters on the market from Pioneer Pet. It just recently made it's debut at the 2014 Global Pet Expo, where the who's who of the pet brands show off their latest and greatest products to the who's who of pet retailers and influencers.
Probably the most unique characteristic of SmartCat is that it's made from ...GRASS??? Yes, it's made from 100% USA farmed grass with no added chemicals or fragrances. But that's not all.
1. NO dust. Not one bit. REALLY.
We're not kidding.
2. NO smell. Not at all. REALLY.
Ok, you probably think we're pulling your paw. But seriously, just the sweet smell of nothing. Even AFTER it's been used.
3. Clumping Power
Out clumps clay and WAY out clumps many other biodegradable and natural litters. It's super easy to scoop and clean. None of that gunk stuck to the sides of the litter box. (yay!!!)
Though SmartCat doesn't really market their litter as being lightweight, we think they should! We had two bags of litter, side by side. The bags looked to be about the same size. The clay bag was a whopping 40 pounds. SmartCat weighed in at a mere 20#.
100% grass, fragrance & chemical free, biodegradable and renewable.
The soft, fine texture is definitely easy on the paws. We thing cats who struggle with the texture of other *chunkier* litters will really appreciate this.
WELL? Katie & Waffles Tested AND Approved!
We've tried a lot of litters. And we've written about a lot too. We have three litter boxes and will often use a different kind of litter in each box. When SmartCat made it's debut in our litter room (yes we have our own litter room with curtains and everything) ... Both Waffles and I took to it right away. We still use the other litters too, but this is the first biodegradable litter we've pawed into right off the bat.
Glogirly is thrilled, because she's loving the no smell, no dust and lightweight factor. There's a little bit of litter tracking, probably due to the fine, light texture. But nothing a small litter mat or throw rug can't catch. SmartCat is going to be a regular feature in our litter room. .... and now, here's a chance for YOU to try it too!
