WAFFLES: But Boss, it's time for our litter invention thing.
KATIE: You mean Littervention.
WAFFLES: Litter what???
KATIE: It's like an intervention, except for our litter room. Like a makeover. Can we please talk about this later?
KATIE: Seriously? Have you SEEN the state of the litter room after you've done your business???
It's a LITTERVENTION!
When our friends at Tidy Cats® told us they were going to do an intervention on our litter room, a "Littervention" they called it, we realized the first step to coming clean was going to be admitting we had a problem. (See photo above.)
They sat us down at our computer screen and proceeded to ask a myriad of questions -
- How many litter boxes do you have?
- Where are your litter boxes located?
- What's your biggest litter box pet peeve?
- What would you do if you could give your litter room a makeover?
A few answers and a couple of weeks later, two HUGE boxes arrived. They were filled with a cornucopia of cool stuff.
All the Right Tools
We received shiny new litter boxes, litter mats, a VERY effective metal scoop with a handy hanger and even a Litter Genie litter disposal system. We keep one of our litter boxes in a fiberglass shower enclosure and the addition of the perfectly sized mat is making clean up a breeze. The Litter Genie means fewer runs to the garage to toss out our clumps.
Taking It to the Mat
These are the first litter mats we've tried out and we love them! We never realized how much litter Waffles and Katie were shaking out on the floor as they left the box. A simple (and cute) litter mat is a no-brainer solution.
A Little Math
Do you know how many litter boxes is the perfect number for your furry family? One per cat plus one extra. For us that makes three. So simple, even Waffles can figure it out. We hope.
Glogirly's Biggest Litter Box Peeve
When Glogirly opened up the new boxes, you'd have thought she won the lottery! You see, her biggest litter box pet peeve is the gunky stuff and clumps that stick to the bottom and corners of the litter box. Besides cleaning regularly, the best solution to sticking is making sure your boxes are replaced regularly. Over time, all that scratching really takes a toll on the bottom of the box. It's not only difficult to scoop, but it's hard to clean and sanitize. Depending on use, it's a good idea to replace them every year or so.
FUN FACT: Speaking of use, did you know that Katie and Waffles use the same litter box? No His and Hers in our litter room. Of course, Katie would never admit it.
And that's especially true when it comes to litter boxes. We scoop daily, adding in additional litter as needed. Then once a month, we do a soap and water deep clean. We always use fragrance free, pet friendly cleaners.
We're not sure if scratching and litter boxing goes hand in hand for other cat households, but they do in ours. We keep a couple of scratchers nearby and adjacent to our primary litter room. Whenever there's scooping going on, chances are there's an occupied scratcher in the vicinity.
Cool little storage boxes with French kitty art make perfect storage cubbies for disposable bags and other small necessities. And for those who don't mind a soft scent, Tidy Cats new deodorizer can be lightly sprinkled into the litter for a fresh, outdoorsy smell.
Do you need a Littervention too?
