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.
Frisco All Natural Pine & Corn Clumping Cat Litter is made from a 100% corn and pine blend without any chemicals or added fragrances. Natural, biodegradable ingredients, like pine shavings from reclaimed lumber, make this earth-friendly litter a great alternative to standard clay litter.

This ultra-absorbent formula is up to 3 times more absorbent than traditional clay litter and uses the power of natural ingredients to form soft clumps that are easy to scoop, making cleanup simple.

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.
lightweight with some sharp edges
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Disclaimer: We received the Frisco Pine and Corn litter in exchange for our honest review. As always we tell it like we see it. 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.
Don’t furget the great boxes you get with your orders sissy. Chewy has great boxes. We get a new toy every month with our auto ship. Ifin ya’ wanna check out other reviews this month, check out the Chewy blog hop here. C’mon sissy, let’s go play.

Hey everypawdy, guess who? Yep, it’s me, RaenaBelle here on a Fursday. We have so much to meow ‘bout, mommy said we had to write an extra posty today. As most of ya’ know, we shop fur most of our kitty supplies at Chewy.com. Ya’ know, the purrices are good, the selection is varied and the customer service is tops. So, when Petsmart bought them, we kind’a waited with baited breath to see what was gonna happen. Quite furankly, we sort of ‘spected the worse.
RaenaBelle!!! Befur we had a catputer, we had really wished a Petsmart would open up ‘round here. So meowin’ we ‘spected the worse isn’t very nice or accurate.
I’s just meant that we ‘spected purrices to go up and customer service to go down. You know, when big companies swallow up the little ones, those things are always affected. Anyways, to our surpurrise, things kind’a remained the same…least fur a while. Recently, Chewy has begun carryin’ some purroducts by Only Natural Pet, another online pet company purrchased by Petsmart. So, to innerduce peeps to these purroducts, we were asked ifin there was an Only Natural Pet purroduct we would like to try.
Yep Raena, and mommy had been eyein’ one of their natural purroducts fur some time. As most peeps know, mommy luvs usin’ more natural purroducts on us. She purrticularly hates to use poison on us to treat/purrvent fleas and ticks. She treats the yard ‘round our ‘pawrtment each season, and also sprays ‘round windows, doors and any openings that fleas could use to get into our house.
That’s true sissy. But, bein’ Service Cats, means that at some point, we’re gonna be goin’ outside somewhere that mommy can’t treat. Flea treatments have come a long way over the years, and Only Natural Pet had developed a tag that’s worn on the collar to purrvent fleas, ticks and mosquitoes fur up to 1 year. Yep, it’s a tag and not the collar itself. You know, kind’a like the rabies tag or name tag some cats and woofies wear. So, mommy said we’d luvs to take that there tag fur a spin. We only received 1 tag, so mommy decided to let me try it out. I’s young and luvs to go anywhere and everywhere, so mommy figgered I’s needed more purrtectin’ than sissy. Let’s see what Chewy has to say ‘bout the Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Dog and Cat Collar Tag:
Protect your precious pup from fleas, ticks and mosquitoes the safe and effective way with the Only Natural Pet EasyDefense Flea & Tick Tag. Using the power of silicon dioxide particles, these unique tags are coded with frequencies that are safe for your pet, but irritating to biting insects—making for an effective, chemical-free flea and tick repellant. Once the tag is placed on your pet’s collar, programmed frequencies will harmonize with your pet’s own biological frequency, repelling those pests without bothering your furry friend. To humans and pups, this tag is harmless, but the vibration makes one thing clear to fleas and ticks: they aren’t welcome on the back of your furry friend. Keep them safe the natural way, with Only Natural Pets.
- Contains silicon dioxide particles that are encoded with frequencies that are safe for your pet, but grating to fleas and ticks, making for an effective, chemical-free flea and tick repellent.
- Causes no harm to your pet—once the tag is hooked onto your pet’s collar, encrypted frequencies will synchronize with your pet’s unique biological frequency, deterring fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other biting insects without bothering your pet.
- Simply clip this flea and tick tag to your dog or cat’s collar and, in three weeks, you will have powerful, safe and effective flea and tick control that lasts up to a full year.
- The tag uses quantum mechanics, and does not use electricity, chemicals, magnetics, or radioactivity.
- Based on over 15 years of targeted research in collaboration with doctors and scientists, these European-designed tags are completely safe for dogs, cats and humans.
The EasyDefense Tag is designed for flea prevention, not eliminating infestations. If your pet is already infested by fleas, their environment is also infested, and the tag on its own will not be enough to mitigate the infestation. To eliminate existing flea infestations, we strongly recommend complementing the tag with other natural flea removal products.
When mommy furst opened the package, she noticed the tag was covered in a powder of some kind. It kind’a got everywhere. But mommy purrceeded to attach it to the stretchy collar she has fur us and chased me down to put it on. Yep kitties, it smelled funny, I’s wasn’t none to thrilled to wear it. Once the powder flakes off, the smell goes away too. The directions are purretty clear, one tag purr pet and it needs to be worn most if not all the time in order to synchronize and be effective.
Simply attach the EasyDefense Tag to your pet’s collar using the ring provided, positioning it on top of other tags, farthest away from your pet.
The EasyDefense Tag will become fully effective within a few weeks. If you remove your pet’s collar at night, place it in or close to their bed. Since the tag utilizes your pet’s energy to create a natural barrier to pests, it should stay on or around your pet at all times.
It will usually begin working within a few days, but may take up to a few weeks depending on your pet’s health and the severity of pests in the environment. The EasyDefense Tag will also last up to 12 months.
The tag is waterproof and sturdy, but if it is severely damaged we recommend that you replace it. For the first 4 weeks remove the tag during baths and long swims, but after that period it is fine to leave on in the water.
For optimum effectiveness, please rinse the tag every month or so to remove dirt and debris.
The tag can only be used on one pet at a time because it synchronizes with the pet’s unique energy. Each pet in the household will require its own tag.
Keep the tag away from strong electric and magnetic fields, as these will disturb its effectiveness. If your pet has a microchip, it will not harm its effectiveness.
I’s wasn’t thrilled havin’ it on. I’s scratched and shook mine’s head and faux sneezed a few times. That’s purrobably mommy’s fault. Our rabies tag is attached to our harnesses, so we don’t actually wear those all the time. As fur collars, those are also somethin’ we don’t normally wear all the time. So, now not only did I’s have on a collar, but I’s had a dangle at the end. The furst hurdle I’s had was at dinner time. The tag kept hittin’ mine’s china dinner plate and gettin’ into mine’s food. That was just never gonna do. So, mommy took the collar off so I’s could eat dinner and then put it back on. Later, when we went to bed, I’s couldn’t settle down to sleep, so again, mommy removed mine’s collar. Since I’s sleep in the bed with her, the tag went on the table beside the bed. Hmmmmm I’s hope it didn’t synchronize to mommy. MOL
Furinally, much to mine’s chagrin, mommy decided we had to let me keep the tag on long enuff to ‘synchronize’ so that we could at least test it. I’s furinally quit scratchin’ at it and we only took it off durin’ meals and at night. Honestly, it’s kind’a hard to meow whether it truly works or not, since we don’t normally have a purroblem with fleas and ticks. However, we really like the idea behind it. It took some gettin’ used too, but I’s would give it 2 paws up. Anytime I’s don’t have to get doused with nasty smellin’ poisonous chemicals, is a good time and reason to celebrate. The tag costs $56.98 which seems like a lot, but considerin’ it works fur 12 months, that means it only costs $4.75 a month. That’s actually purretty cheap considerin’. The leadin’ treatments run $50.00 to $60.00 fur 3 to 6 months supply, so it’s at least half the cost fur up to twice as long. Mommy says she’d give it a thumb up. She luvs the natural non toxic option to purrvent a real purroblem.
As the instructions say, ifin you already have an infestation, you’re gonna need to treat it with another method furst. The Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Tag is a purrventative not a treatment. We don’t know how the “synchronizing” works, but because of it, each tag can only be used for 1 animal. It is not interchangeable and must be worn regularly to be effective.
Disclaimer: We received the Easy Defense Flea, Tick and Mosquito Tag in exchange for our honest opinion. As always, we tell it like we see it. And, we only bring you products, we use or have tried and believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.
Me’s not sure me would have wanted to try it out Raena. Me thought it was annoyin’ when it kept dingin’ your dinner plate. But, ifin it means no stinky poisons down our backs, me’s all in. As always, you can save a few extra bucks at Chewy by settin’ up an auto ship. That’ll also help ya’ to never run outta your pets favorite noms or treats or whatever. And right now, you can save an additional 25% off your order of the Easy Defense Flea, Tick, and mosquito dog and cat tag.
Well sissy, ya’ wanna go play?

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. Can I’s just tell you, it’s really smokin’ hot here. Seriously, it’s been in the triple digits as mommy calls it. Y, It’s gonna be at least 110° F today. Mommy says that’s so hot you could fry an egg on the hood of a car in the shade…ifin ya’ had an egg and a shade that is.
Raena, are you meowin’ stories again? Me doesn’t ‘member hearin’ mommy say anythin’ like that.
Well sissy, maybe that’s cuz you were UTB (under the bed) hidin’ out from the lawn crew.
How many times does me have to tell ya’, me’s not hidin’ out. Me’s pawtrolin’ fur intruders. Anyways, enuff ‘bout all that, it’s hot every where right now. Haven’t you seen our furiends complainin’ ‘bout unseasonably hot temps where they live?
Yep sissy, I’s have seen that. Still, I’s wanted to meowmble. Mommy says that no matter what the weather is, we’re gonna complain, so I’s just gettin’ mine’s complainin’ in fur today since we’re still in a state of limbo as far as everythin’ else is concerned. Ya’ know, we’re s’posed to meow ‘bout litter and the pawtty box today. I’s don’t know why, since you seem to be usin’ the piddle pads more and more lately. What’s wrong with you? Are you sick, or mad, or are you just tryin’ to create more work fur mommy? Huh, what’s up with ya’?
Never you mind Raena. Let’s do meow ‘bout litter and pawtty boxes. Everypawdy knows, mommy purrfurs natural litters fur us and we, bein’ cats, purrfur the unscented variety. And, most everypawdy knows, we were Blest with a Litter Robot last Christmas which you think is the greatest thing since sliced rabbit with gravy. ‘Course, mommy knowin’ the rules and all kept our great corner box up and runnin’ too. Ya’ know, just in case there was a line to the pawtty box one meownin’. The thing mommy luvved ‘bout the Litter Robot was that we could still use our favorite natural litter, SwheatScoop.
Yep sissy, I’s too young to ‘member such things, but mommy says she ‘members when SwheatScoop furst came out and she had to order directly from the company. Back then it came in generic brown boxes and the shippin’ costed more than the litter itself. There were only 2 sizes, big and bigger. Anyways, lots of time has passed since then and SwheatScoop now comes in their very own bags and several different sizes, 10lb, 25lb and 36lb; we received the 10lb bag. They even have a couple of different furmulas, Fast Clumping and Multi-Cat. They range in price from $9.69 to $24.99. Let’s see what Chewy has to say:
Fill your litter box with sWheat Scoop Premium+ Natural Clumping Wheat Cat Litter, an all-around better litter. It uses the power of natural plant extracts to eliminate odors instead of harmful chemicals, which is better for you, your pet and the environment. The secret is exclusive Noble Ion Technology that infuses wheat enzymes with noble ions to neutralize litter box odors. It’s extremely effective odor control. This high-performing litter has no added dyes, perfumes or dust and is 100% biodegradable. Clumps are fast-forming, firm and compact for easy scooping. sWheat Scoop Premium+ works well for single- or multiple-cat homes.
- Three times more powerful odor control for a breakthrough in odor elimination.
- Three times faster and firmer clumping for easy scooping and a mess-free home.
- Noble Ion Technology infuses wheat ions with noble ions to naturally break down odors.
- Recommended by veterinarians with no added dyes or perfumes. Great for single and multi-cat homes.
- Eco-friendly, all-natural litter is made from wheat and is 100% biodegradable.
We purrsonally don’t think there’s much of a difference t’ween the furmulas ifin any, so we always buy whichever furmula’s on sale or the cheapest at the time. Some of mommy’s favorite features of sWheatScoop is that it clumps well, only smells when heated by a fresh urine depawsit and is flushable. That heated smell we’re meowin’ ‘bout is like a loaf of bread and goes away quickly. So long as kitty covers their business, it controls odors very well. Me will tell ya’, it’s not a lightweight litter. The bigger bags are heavy, so bein’ able to have it delivered right to our door is a big plus. Now, ifin we could only get the Fedex man to scoop. MOL
the white stuffs just a little baby powder mommy shook in there to aid in odor
control. She scooped the smelly right when it happened, so the smell lingered a minute.
You’re a laff a minute today sissy. I’s like the sWheatScoop litter. Since It’s all natural, it’s much safer fur me to clean off ifin it gets stuck to mine’s bloomers. Bein’ wheat, an actual food product, anythin’ that makes it into mine’s tummy by accident, just comes out the other end. ‘Course, ifin you’re ‘lergic to wheat, it might be a purroblem…just meowin’. I’s not, so I’s give the sWheatScoop 4 paws up. What ‘bout you sissy?
Me fur sure likes it better than any of that clay stuffs Raena. Me gives it 4 paws up too. And, cuz we buy the big bags, we always get a great size Chewy box to play in. Me knows mommy gives 2 thumbs up or she wouldn’t keep orderin’ it after all these years. Meowin’ of orderin’, Chewy’s a great place to shop fur all your pet’s needs. They offur speedy furee shippin’ on all orders $49.00 and up and a low flat rate speedy shippin’ on all orders below. They have a great auto ship program that lets you save an additional 5% and makes sure you never run out of your pet’s faves. But don’t worry, you can always skip, cancel or delay any auto ship up to 24 hours befur shipment.
Disclaimer: We received a bag of sWheatScoop 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 believe would be of interest to you, our readers and friends.
That’s right sissy, and they have the bestest Customer Service peeps ‘round. They also have great boxes and packin’ paper…just meowin’. Ya’ know, that means a new toy every month. MOL Guess we better get off here and see ifin we can help mommy. She’s still purretty stressed, so we’re tryin’ to take really good care of her.
Till the next time………………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
