Chatting Cats: Is Pine A Good Cat Litter

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s sure hope you all had a pawsum weekend. Things have been a little crazy ‘round here. And not even fur the reasons you might be thinkin’ ‘bout. Let me tell ya’ a little story. It all started a couple months ago when mommy ordered our review items from Chewy. We get asked all the time fur recommendations. Ya’ know the kind, what food is bestest? What litter do you use? And so on. ‘Course, we always tell peeps that we purrfur our natural litter over clay every day of the week and twice on Blest Sundays. Anyways, lots of peeps wanna know why we don’t like clay and even tho’ we don’t, is there one we would recommend over another. So, mommy decided we’d give one of those clay litters a try and she purromptly added it to our normal litter. (Raena shakes her head) Sometimes mommy ain’t the crispest cracker in the box.

          RaenaBelle, what are you meowmblin’ on about? 

 

I’s tryin’ to x’plain what’s been goin’ on ‘round here lately sissy. Ya’ know, with you and the pawtty box? Ya’ know, how you quit usin’ it when mommy added that clay to it.

          Uh, that might have been the main reason Raena, but it fur sure wasn’t the only reason. Don’t furget to tell everypawdy what a pain you are. Jumpin’ on top of the pawtty box and whappin’ me’s tail while me’s tryin’ to do me’s business. Nopawdy or kitty wants to have your paws unner their hoohaw while they’re goin’ pawtty. Just ask mommy. ‘Member when you tried to stick your paw in the toilet while she was usin’ it?

Anyways sissy, back to mine’s story. (Raena thinks a minute) Actually sissy, ifin ya’ stand at the openin’ with your tail flyin’ ‘round like a flag, you’re just askin’ to get whapped. You know we kitties can’t resist a wavin’ object. Anyways, I’s, bein’ the good girl I’s is, continued to use the pawtty box of course. Even when that nasty stuff ran every where and globbed on mine’s bloomers. I’s could see how frustrated mommy was havin’ to clean your messes several times a day. Fanky fankfully, as soon as mommy got paid this month she bought several jumbo bags of our good litter and completely changed out your favorite box. It took a while, but you furinally started usin’ the pawtty box again. And lo and behold, but what did Chewy offur us this month? More litter. Fanky fankfully, it’s the natural kind we like. You can see that review here. But wait, they also offured another natural litter. See Chewy has their own brand called Frisco. And, they have a natural pine and corn litter that mommy thought we might like, so she ordered a bag. We received a 28 lb. bag of Frisco All Natural Pine and Corn Clumping litter that sells for $20.99, $19.94 ifin it’s on auto ship. Let me tell ya’, it ain’t lightweight in the bag, so be sure ya’ have your muscles ready when it arrives. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout it.

After recent events, mommy decided not to place this is both of our pawtty boxes right off. 

 

          At least she learned from her mistakes, Raena. After all, me might be a little purrticular, but me does purrfur to do me’s business in the appropriate place.

Sure sissy, whatever you meow. I’s heard stories ‘bout when you were a baby kitten and tried to… 

 

          RaenaBelle!!! Just get back to the Frisco pine and corn litter. Nopawdy wants to hear your so called stories.

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

Mommy poured 1/4 cup water in the middle of the bowl. As you

can see, the water ran from the middle and only stopped

because it ran into the sides of the bowl.

 

 

 

I’s bet they do sissy. Wanna bet? Why don’t we ask ‘em?  Anyways, I’s gettin’ off track here. Where was I’s? Oh yeah, after openin’ the bag, which by the way has no way to reseal any unused pawtion, mommy decided not to put the litter in any of our pawtty boxes. It smells kind’a moldy and funky, altho’ we didn’t see any mold and I’s not sure what funk looks like. So, mommy placed some in our handy dandy bowl so we could purrform some tests. You know the ones, what’s the texture, does it make a good clump and is it easy and clean to scoop?.

So, what were the results you ask? Well, it’s dusty as a construction site and has some pointy sticky pieces that might be a little rough on tender paw pads. When mommy poured the 1/4 cup of water over the top, it ran everywhere, kind’a like the clay did. That means it would’a been stickin’ to mine’s bloomers. Not a good thing let me tell ya’. So, we had a clump and some fur mommy to scoop. The main clump started breakn’ apawrt the minute mommy tried to scoop it. You can kind’a see it in the fotos. Mommy overfilled the bowl and it’s really fluffy and lightweight so it kind’a scattered everywhere when she tried to scoop it. 

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

The center clump started breaking the minute it was lifted out of the bowl.

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, mommy made a real mess with this one. Me’s sure you were no help bein’ right unner her feet tryin’ to see everythin’. You know, you don’t have to be a pawrt of every little thing that happens. 

 

Frisco pine and corn cat litter,

The dust is so lightweight, it spilled over the top of the bowl during the scooping process.

It’s also a bit staticky and some stuck to the edges of the bowl. Based

on prior experience we know that it would also cling to fur.

 

 

 

Yes I’s do sissy. You never know when mommy might need me. I’s just bein’ a good girl and lettin’ mommy know I’s there to help her any time, any way she needs me. Mommy shouldn’t have to holler fur us and wonder where we are. You know how much she hates that. Mommy’s always sayin’ she likes fur us to be where she can see us and hear us and touch us ifin she wants. I’s just doin’ what mommy wants me to do. She’d like you to do it too, but noooooooo, you were too busy bathin’ on the scratchin’ pad. 

 

Dezi lays on scratcher and licks paw

 

 

 

          So what Raena. Me’s sure some of that litter dust got on me. Me didn’t wanna stink like that so me had to hurry and get it off. Mommy could still see me. Ifin she had needed me, me would’a been right there. But, me knew she didn’t need both of us t’ween her legs. Sometimes, your help ain’t very helpful. You just oughtta be glad you’re not the reason mommy falls so much. You know she ain’t no ballerina. Grace ain’t her middle name.

 

You better be nice sissy. I’s gonna tell mommy that you’re makin’ fun of her. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. We can’t speak fur odor control cuz we think the fresh outta the bag litter already stinks. It might not smell like cat pee, but it ain’t purretty let me tell ya’. And, we kitties actually purrfur unscented litter. Since I’s didn’t actually use the stuffs, I’s can’t meow to how it feels, but based on our tests, I’s can tell ya’ I’s wouldn’t like it. 

 

          Well Raena, me fur sure wouldn’t like it. Me doesn’t like it when me’s business runs all over the place and gets me dirty. That’s why me quit usin’ the pawtty box when that clay stuff was in there. Besides, all that dust and stench, is totally unacceptable fur any self respectin’ kitty’s pawtty box.

 

Mommy was quite disappointed sissy. She had really hoped this would be a good alternative to our regular litter. Ya’ know, in case she wanted or needed to add it to our rotation. She says ya’ never know what might happen and when ya’ might need an alternative. The size and purrice are right up there with other quality natural products and it’s made in the USA. We give it one paw fur bein’ made here at home, but we think they need to go back to the drawin’ board. It could fur sure use some upgrades. Our idea of a soft clump isn’t somethin’ that breaks apart the minute ya’ touch it. Can you ‘magine the mess you’d have with it breakin’ apawrt all the way to the trash or toilet to dispose of it? We’ve tried other Frisco purroducts that are top notch, but this one’s a miss in our opinion.

          But we still luv Chewy. They’ve got great customer service that’s available 24/7, and purroducts fur the whole family, furred, feathered, scaled, finned and skinned. And, they offur speedy free shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and over and speedy flat rate shippin’ fur all other orders. They even offur a great auto ship program that allows you to save an extra 5% off your orders and makes sure you never run outta your pet’s faves. Don’t worry, you can skip, cancel or delay anytime.

Chewy is not responsible for the opinions expressed here unless otherwise stated. We only bring products we use or have tried and feel would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.

  1. This litter you mention purr-obably wouldn’t be one mom would choose for me. She likes litter where the dirty clumps hold together for scooping. And she looks for litters that are unscented, ’cause I have allergies. So I think we’d share the same opinion that you had of it. Hugs and luvs.

      • Really? I remember getting a small toy every time I ordered something. Maybe a few crinkle toys or a mousie or two. We thinks when they got bought out that stopped. And maybe since you got freebies for being a spokesperson you already got your freebies for just doing that. I know that we got treats when we ordered. But not any longer!
