My 4 Easy Tips To Take Control of Your Litter Box will improve your litter duty experience considerably. Litter is only one aspect of litter box duty!
We live in a cat house! We have two cats and two litter boxes. We have two bathrooms, why shouldn’t they? Do you purchase your preferred brand of toilet paper? We do, so with that in mind, we purchase Heebly and Hoobly’s preferred brand of cat litter, Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze.
Cat owners are a kindred spirit. I don’t think it’s possible for another pet to be as entertaining as cats are. Have you seen any of the funny cat videos? I sort of chuckle to myself just thinking about the one with cats jumping straight up when they see a cucumber on the floor. I’ve got to put cucumbers on my shopping list!
Our two cats are brothers. They suckered us into adopting them both by being overtly playful together and sickeningly adorable at the same time. They won my heart hiding under the seat in the car on the way home.
Fast forward a few years and a few pounds. Hobbly thought he could help out when we had a plumbing leak under the kitchen sink recently. He needed to be sure the fan was drying things out properly, I guess!
He keeps me company when I’m crafting.
This is his ‘OH NO! I HEARD A NOISE face’, just before he runs to hide.
Hobbly is certainly the one always getting into things. Hibernating in the laundry basket is his morning ritual.
Heebly has gone through three of these toys now! He recognizes it’s sound the instant we turn it on no matter where he is in the house.
Heebly isn’t the mischievous one. He is very loving and wants to ‘hold hands’ at nap time.
Sometimes you just have to crash after a full day of playing and getting into things!
Though their personalities are very different, they always have each others back.
Along with their differing personalities, Heebly and Hoobly have different bathroom habits.
Heebly has a fear of enclosed spaces so no litter box lids in our home. You don’t want to know how we figured out he was afraid of enclosed spaces.
Hoobly wants a bathroom close enough to avoid having to take too many steps to get there. That’s why we have two litter boxes on opposite ends of the house. I daydream about owning a home with a sun room so I could turn it into a cat haven and take back my house!
They both agree on their preferred litter though, Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze. No, it does not smell like Febreze, it has the “odor controlling” power of Febreze. The scent is actually Lemongrass citrus for a “fresher” aroma. There is also Borate Technology for superior ammonia control. Those of us who have to scoop the litter appreciate all this awesome technology, right?
We also appreciate the new bag which makes transporting and storing easier.
The first isle we visit at Sam’s Club is always the pet care isle. With 2 cats and 2 dogs, it’s no wonder, is it? We always find our Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze in stock at Sam’s Club. I’d go get the manager if they were out! That would be a cat-tastrophe!
The Sam’s Club May Instant Savings Book shares $3.50 off at Sam’s Club 5/11-6/5. You do not need the book or a coupon. This offer, like all sale prices, is already loaded onto your member card. You can find the sale at samsclub.com or pick up the Instant Savings Book at the service desk.
We were thrilled to partner with Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze to make a nice donation of $100 to our favorite cat rescue charity! I can’t tell you how excited I was to be able to make that phone call, meet the volunteers and visit the All About Animals Cat House in Macon, Ga.
The All About Animals Cat House is the perfect environment for felines waiting to be adopted. Look at their playground! It was a pleasure to meet Adrienne to deliver the check and spend some time visiting the cats waiting to be adopted. Did you know you can donate your Paw Points to help shelters in need?
Now, on to those 4 Easy Tips. First, let me ask you, where do you store your pooper scooper? The thoughts of storing it anywhere except next to the litter box makes me shudder.
DIY Poop Bag & Scoop Holder
This is a super easy upcycle project with only two supplies needed. If you are storing your litter scoop inside the litter box, this could create an aversion for your cat(s).
- Empty cereal box
- Decorative Duct tape
Cut the cereal box in half and begin to wrap the outside with Duct tape. I used a decorative tape with the industrial look since this is going to house the cat litter scoop.
Continue wrapping until the entire outside is covered.
Stuff the box with plastic bags and place the scoop in the top bag.
Now, all you have to do is pull the top bag when scooping and continue until you need to refill the bags.
Take Control of Your Litter Box with These 4 Easy Tips
- Scoop often
- Be aware of your cats specific needs
- Use Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze
- Store your Poop Bag and Scoop Holder right next to the litter box
If your cat has stopped using their litter box, it could be one of these reasons.
