Texas: What? You received the Litter One product back in June! Well, okay there was the move… Anyway…

Back when my human went to Blogpaws, a nice lady talked to her about an entirely biodegradable litter product that was just being launched and she asked my human whether she would like to try it. Indeed, the little leaflet said that not only was it an environment-friendly solution, but it took away the burden of cleaning the litter box from the humans, too. She was intrigued!
You see, as I mentioned before, an excuse my human often hears for not adopting a kitty is the litter box chore. My human doesn’t enjoy cleaning our litter boxes either but she thinks it is worth having us around! So she thought that if someone was to invent a solution that would make it easier for humans, maybe that could help!
My human received the Litter One Product for free to test back in June. But with all the boxes around at our old place, she thought it might not be a good “test” since we were already a little
distressed worried by what was going on around.
Long story short: fast forward to September in our new home.
My human waited for us to be well at ease in our new home. She decided to install the Litter One in her office room, while leaving the other clay litter boxes we are used to in our usual bathroom.
There was some assembly to do but with our help… well okay, with the help of the video on the Litter One website, it was easy, really!
Here is the video:
Here is me helping my human:
The human wants to say that it is really practical to use, for everything is included: the litter box, of course, the litter, a little scoop and poop bags.
The litter itself is made of pine pellets. It did look strange to us a little bit, although we had tried another such litter before.
Kitshka and I didn’t want to try it at first. It is said that you can put a layer of your kitty’s usual litter on top of the pine pellets, if the kitties don’t naturally go to the new litter. But my human wanted to wait before doing it and it only took a couple of days before… Milou would go pee in it! Of course, I couldn’t let Milou be the only one peeing in MY human’s office’s litter box!
I can’t believe my human took a picture of me in the act…
The pellets kind of disintegrate after a contact with a liquid and transform into some dust that goes through small holes in the false bottom of the litter box. So my human would only regularly shake the box a little to make sure the dust would find its way to the holes.
Milou and I regularly peed in this litter box but my human never saw Kitshka go in it. She closes her office room during the night so there is a good chance that Kitshka never tried it.
Another interesting thing is that not one single kitty pooped in it (sorry for the details but this is a fact!). We only peed in it.
All in all we liked this litter and the human says she didn’t sniff any odor at all!
We only have one reservation though: it is said that the litter can last up to 4-6 weeks. My human was impressed by that statement but not easily convinced. And in fact, after a little less than two weeks:
It is not surprising though because 1) Milou tends to pee in direction of the walls of any litter box (okay me too sometimes), 2) 2 weeks is already a lot in our humble opinion, when a usual litter needs to be cleaned everyday and changed every week at the very least! This one required low maintenance and lasted longer.
We think this is a nice product and my human also really appreciates the fact that it was both easy to set up and to throw away when it was time: she simply closed the box and put it in the recycle trash box! And of course, the fact that there was no odor was a definite plus!
I think the Litter One humans are on to something interesting and practical here!
Disclosure: One Litter One product was sent to us free of charge to try it. We were not asked to review it, but decided it was worth a review. We were not compensated for the review, or for my superb mancattitude posing on the product. Our opinions remain our own.
