Prepping The Dance Floor #ChewyInfluencer

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. It’s furinally the weekend!!! What does a kitty care ‘bout the weekend you ask? We really don’t, but all humans seem a little happier come Furiday. And, that makes us kitties happier too. We know that mommy’s a lot happier on Furidays’. I’s think it has somethin’ to do with the office bein’ closed, so we won’t be bothered fur the next 3 days.

          You’re right ‘bout all of that Raena, but it really has nuffin’ to do with our posty today.

 

Maybe not sissy, but, shouldn’t we acknowledge that peeps be happy and wish ‘em a happy weekend?

          (Dezi shakes head) Whatever Raena. Anyways, as pawrt of the Chewy bloggin’ furmily we get to try out and review great purroducts every month. This month was no different. As most of ya’ know, we use a natural litter in our pawdee boxes. Mommy likes natural cuz ifin it happens to get stuck to our furs and ultimately ends up in our tummies, it’ll move right on thru us and not become a clump in our intestines. And, most natural litters are flushable. Altho’ as most of ya’ may ‘member, we got one of those litter genie’s fur Raena’s birthday that we now use. And, maybe the most purrtant reason, or at least the second most purrtant, they contain no purrfumes. You know us kitties have the most sensitive sniffers ‘round.

 

This is a sponsored post. We received the Okocat Cat Litter in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it and only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

Those are great reasons sissy. Mommy’s always lookin’ out fur us, ain’t she?. Anyways, fur many years, these natural litters have been made of corn, paper or wheat. All great purroducts, lessen your kitty happens to have an allergy to corn or wheat. Wha’ch’a gonna do now?

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

          Good point Raena. Well, enter Okocat, a natural litter made of wood. Altho’ we must add they do have one litter made of paper, but, we’re gonna be meowin’ ‘bout the wood today. We got to try the Okocat Soft Step Natural Wood clumping litter. It’s called soft step cuz it’s finely milled to make it easy on kitty’s tender paw pads. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Okocat litter:

 

Key Benefits

  • Naturally lightweight natural cat litter with a super soft texture your cat will love. Soft Step™ is a fine wood granule, a texture similar to that of clay litter so transitioning your cat to natural is easy. True to its name, it’s perfect for delicate paws, seniors and kittens.

  • Made to control odors for up to 7 days with its patented Odor Shield Technology. Okocat litter binds and traps liquids and odors longer without using chemical additives,

  • Its specially formulated pellets are firm on the outside and soft on the inside. It is fortified with long lasting odor control technology and has been lab-tested and proven to absorb more than 5X its weight in liquid.

  • Higher absorbency and higher yield means litter stays dry and lasts much longer than clay litters, or even other naturals. Superior clumping makes scooping and cleaning easier with less mess and less waste, saving you time and money.

  • It also has the added benefit of being biodegradable. Okocat is naturally lightweight and comes in a smart compostable package with an easy carry handle and pour spout

 

 Okocat Cat Litter

 

We received the 7 pound box. Now mommy knew that 7 pounds wouldn’t fill even one of our litter boxes, so she poured it across the top of our regular litter. Okocat recommends the litter box be filled to a depth of 3 inches. Trust me, this is fur sure somethin’ you wanna do, ‘specially ifin you have diggers like me. Mommy says I’s gonna end up in China one of these days. I’s don’t know what she’s talkin’ ‘bout. I’s luvs mine’s home and fur sure don’t wanna go to China without mommy and sissy. Anyways…

 

          It’s a figure of speech Raena. Me knows, human’s sure do have a lot of them. And, half the time they don’t make any sense what so ever. Me asked mommy ‘bout the dust factor and she said, to be honest, she didn’t really ‘member ifin there was a dust cloud or not. That usually means there wasn’t one, cuz she ‘members every time she hacks up a hair ball due to litter dust.

Yep, I’s didn’t notice all that much dust durin’ mine’s diggin’ forays either sissy. It doesn’t have much of a smell, which is really nice. It feels soft on mine’s paws too. We insist the pawdee box be scooped after every use, so we can’t really meow ‘bout how long the Okocat would hide the smell, but, mommy said it didn’t stink while she was scoopin’. I also didn’t end up with a bloomer full of wood chips. Let me tell ya’, that’s been really nice. Mommy says it has somethin’ to do with the way I’s squat and the litter bein’ wet when I’s stand back up. So, we can surmise that the Okocat natural wood litter clumps and dries almost immediately. And, the clump remains a clump ‘stead of breakin’ up durin’ mine’s attempts of dislodging covering it up.

          You and your diggin’ Raena. Me just walks in, squats, goes and leaves. It’s so much easier that way. 

 

Fur you maybe. I’s come ‘round behind ya’ and cover it all up. Did your sis Lexi (God rest her) do that too?

          Who asked ya’, Raena? Mommy’s gonna scoop it out when me’s finished. No need to spend time diggin’ when me could be bathin’ or gettin’ some beauty sleeps. Me must tell ya’ll that while the Okocat wood litters may not stick to our bloomers, it sure does track. Mommy says the bathroom is like a dance floor now…all dusted and ready fur jitterbuggers.

Yeah sissy, I’s didn’t unnerstand that one either. But, mommy says she used to luvs to dance; and that all good dance floors had a little sawdust put down to keep them from bein’ too slippery. She said she hadn’t thought ‘bout it befur, but the light bulb went off when she saw the dust on the floor. Wood chips equals sawdust. Anyways, the Okocat comes in several different formulas and textures, from finely milled wood, pine and paper to pellets. It’s also flushable and eco-friendly, bein’ made of 100% reclaimed fibers, free from chemicals, dyes and other synthetics. It ranges in purrice from $11.19 to $18.14 and comes in sizes from 7 pounds to 20 pounds, depending on formulas. All in all, we give it 3 paws up and a thumb up from mommy.

          Yep Raena, the only downfall we saw was the dance floor effect. Altho’, mommy says trackin’ is just one of those things kitty peeps get used too.
