MeOW Welcome to a brand new Service Cat Monday. We’re really behind today, but we think when ya’ get to the end, you’ll furgive us. We have quite a few questions regarding the wheelchair that we’re holding until the new chair gets here. In the meantime, we’re runnin’ low on your other questions. ‘Member, the only dumb question, is the one that’s not asked. Everypawdy can’t be a seasoned pet pawrent; ya’ have to start somewhere. So ask us anythin’ and we’ll do our bestest to help out. We’re tacklin’ a good one today. Let’s get the business outta the way and get to it. The followin’ post will be written in human English fur reader and translator ease. Our Service Cat Monday posts aren’t intended to be an all inclusive Trainin’ Manual but rather Tips, Tricks and Techniques used/developed by mommy A thru her many years of animal trainin’, cats in purrticular. And to offur insight into your questions about Feline Behavior. Ifin you have any questions or topics you would like us to cover, purrlease let us know in the comments section or send us an email. When asking behavioral questions, purrlease be as specific as pawssible. And, ifin you’ve missed any of the posts in this series, you can ketch up by clickin’ the links at the end of this post. Always remember, Training is all ‘bout Repetition and Rewards.

So, what’s the hot topic today that every kitty pawrent wouldn’t want to miss? Well, every living being on the planet has 4 basic functions they must do in order to survive: Eat, Drink, Sleep and Eliminate (urinate and defecate). Today, we’re going to focus on kitty’s need to Eliminate. We call this a hot topic because inappropriate Elimination has been the cause of so many kitties losing their furever homes. Problems arising from kitty’s inability to Eliminate can lead to illness and even death. And as every inside only kitty parent would probably say, the litter box is the least favorite part of being owned by a cat. But, it’s necessary. The litterbox isn’t something you or your kitty can live without. Now we know that some have trained kitty to use the human toilet, and some have kitties that go outdoors, but, ideally kitty should have access to a clean litterbox to use for their Elimination needs.

Me’s not usin’ this thing. Me wants a real box.

 

 

We’re not going to spend much time on the alternatives, but we would like to quickly address kitties using the human toilet. As we prove each week with our Service Cat Monday posts, cats are extremely intelligent, but even cats have limitations. Mommy had once thought teaching kitty to use the toilet would be wonderful. However, watching sis Lexi’s mobility and balance decline over the last year of her life has totally changed her mind. We Do Not recommend toilet training any cat.

 

 Open Litterboxes

 

 

 

So, whether you have a new kitty, one kitty or ten (or more), you’re going to need a litterbox. The rule of thumb is 1 box and a spare for each cat in your home. As most people with one or two cats will likely tell you, they’re getting by with just 1 box. But, be aware, the fewer boxes you have the greater chance you have of inappropriate Eliminating. Now, we’ll get back to choosing the right box in a minute. We’d like to talk Litter for a minute.

With all the different types of litter on the market, it can be confusing. Especially to the novice cat owner. But, even long time cat owners can get overwhelmed at times. To Clump or not to clump, that is the question. If only it were that simple. But, that is the first question you need to ask yourself. We prefer Clumping. Mommy says she can’t even remember the day of non clumping litters and is thankful for that memory loss. MOL The next question you might ask is, natural or not? The truth is, clay is just as natural as corn, wheat or grass. The difference is how it reacts in the litterbox and inside kitty’s tummy. Make no mistake, kitty is getting some litter in their mouths. And just about anything that goes into kitty’s mouth is going down their throats, due to the nature of their tongue barbs. (we’ll cover that in another post if you’d like). Cats are such fastidious groomers, that anything left on our furs or between our paw pads is going to get licked and may be ingested. Here is where the natural difference comes in. Clay and it’s clumping additives are not naturally edible and don’t easily pass thru kitty’s intestines. Instead they do inside kitty the same as they do in the litterbox…form clumps and cause blockages. While there may be little nutritional value to corn or wheat in a cat food, it can certainly pass thru the intestines with ease.

The next question to ask is, Scented or Unscented?. The smell of cat urine is like pouring a bottle of amonia in a bowl. It can quickly cause burning eyes, burning and/or itching in the nose and throat and just plain be unpleasant. Many litters on the market add things like perfumes, baking soda and other scented additives to make the litter smell more pleasing to the human nose. Notice me said human nose. When was the last time you saw a kitty of any size looking for the closest lavender field to urinate in? Kitties have very sensitive olfactory senses (noses). We kitties prefer a totally Unscented place to Eliminate. Remember, cats are both Predators and Prey; and anything that draws attention to us could in our minds put us at risk of becoming something bigger’s meal. And hey, if you’re scooping like you should be, there shouldn’t be any lasting smells. (we’ve only posted a few different types of litter. there are many many more to choose from)

Another thing we’d like to bring your awareness too is Litters/Additives that can help one keep an eye on kitty’s urinary health. In recent years crystal type litters have gained popularity due to their lack of color or color changing crystal additives. These help humans identify Urine pH levels or blood in the urine easier. We’ll tell you that for this reason, we really like the Garfield Cat Litter. It’s completely clear, clumps well and keeps down odors naturally. It has minimal dust and a texture most cats like. It comes in two formulas, small grain and large grain. We prefer the small grain, as it’s very soft and easy on the paws. It feels a lot like sand. We think it would work great for older, paw sensitive and declawed cats. (PLEASE Do Not Declaw your cats!!!). Stay tuned at the end of this post, we’re giving away a couple of 10 pound bags.

Let’s talk about scooping for a minute. No matter how many cats and/or litterboxes you have, you should scoop the litterbox at least once a day. Me personally, thinks it should be scooped every time a deposit is made. Yes, mommy spoiled me and me never grew out of it. But, one day when she was mumbling about scooping so me could go poop, me had just peed and so the box must be cleaned ASAP; she thought to herself, “I wouldn’t want to use a potty that hadn’t been flushed after the last use so really…why would I expect my girls to use a dirty potty?.” When ya’ put it that way, it makes total sense. She doesn’t mumble as much anymore. MOL   Anyways, for the rest of the world, we say at the very least, once a day. The cleaner the box, the less chance you’ll have of Inappropriate Elimination. Remember, us cats really like clean.

 

Hooded and High Sided Litter boxes

So, you’ve chosen a litter and are ready to go. How do you pick a litterbox? The box you choose must be large enough to accommodate kitty. Most kitties are going to want to turn around a time or two, dig a little and then pick a spot and squat. Of course there are the kitties who forget to squat. If you have one of those, be sure to look for a box with high sides or maybe a lid. Just be sure the lid is large enough for kitty to be able to stand up straight in. If you’re using an enclosed litterbox, regular scooping becomes even more important. Most of the smell is trapped under the lid. We shouldn’t have to explain walking into a stinky bathroom, we think most everybody already knows about that one. You may also want to look into an automatic litterbox. They’ve come a long way in the last few years. Stay tuned, we’ll be giving you the scoop on our pick next week. The last step is to place kitty’s litterbox in a quiet place with easy access in and out. You don’t want kitty to feel trapped or cornered.

Hmmmmm I’s don’t know sissy, what do you think?

 

 

 

So, you’ve done everything right. The box is the perfect size, you chose the best unscented litter with a texture kitty loves and placed it in a quiet location, but kitty’s still Inappropriately Eliminating. Here are a few tips to get kitty and their pee and poop back in the box where it belongs. Do Not Punish kitty!!! Remember, all successful Training is about Positive Reinforcement, Repetition and Rewards. First things first. Clean the area well with an odor neutralizing cleaner. You don’t want to mask the odor, but eliminate it altogether. Take kitty to the VET to rule out any medical reasons such as Urinary Tract Infections, Kidney or Bladder Stones, etc. If kitty gets an all clear, try placing a litterbox over the area kitty is using temporarily to entice kitty to use it. Sprinkle a litter attractant, catnip, silvervine or valerian on the litter and the lip of the litterbox. If you see kitty start to use the floor, say in a firm voice, “NO” and move kitty to the litterbox. Each time you see kitty use the box, praise them and reward them with hugs or treats. Always set kitty up for success and you’ll have a much happier home. Remember, you might like the scent of all those scented litters, but you’re not the one trapped inside a small enclosure with them. The litterbox should be attractive to kitty, not necessarily you.

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.

 

 Dezi sits on scratcher and looks back at Raena laying on the nip mat

 

          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? 

 

 Chewy Logo

 

          (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. 

  

 Dezi lays on scratcher while Raena lays on nip mat

 

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.

 

 Okocat cat litter

 

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?

Okocat tracked onto floor right in front of litterbox and mat.

 

          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.

 

 Dezi lays atop the Liberty cat tree

 

          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. As always, we ‘purreciate Chewy lettin’ us try out the Okocat cat litter. Chewy has purroducts fur all the furry, feathered, and scaled members of your household. You can also set up an auto-ship so you never run out of your favorite purroducts. And Chewy’s customer service is the bestest.

BoxieCat Clay #ChewyInfluencer

Dezi sits on bench

Meowllo and welcome to me’s world. You know me’s bloggy is called Deziz World fur a reason. Pawrently back when we started bloggin’ me was a little tyrant Princess kinda like Raena is now and mommy used to say it was my world and we’re all just livin’ in it. Anyways, ifin you’ve ever wondered how me’s bloggy got it’s name, dat’s it. On another note, we have a pawsum review fur ya’ today. As you know, we are Chewy Influencers and as such, each month we get to try new purroducts and tell you all ‘bout them. This month we chose a purroduct just fur all of you. Why is me comin’ to you from da pawdee box room you ask? Well, we get asked a lot ‘bout what kind of litter we recommend. As most of ya’ know, we’re natural litter kitties, and mommy luvs da flushability of natural, so it works fur us. But there’s a lot of peeps dat fur whatever reason purrfurr clay litter. We don’t really have a clue ‘bout what might be bestest among da clay litters. Mommy can’t even ‘member da last clay litter she bought. So, when we were given da oppurrtunity to try out a new clay litter, we thought ‘bout all of you clay users and jumped on it.

We received a 16 pound bag of BoxieCat all natural scent free premium clumping litter. Mommy said da stark white shiny bag and light blue writing made it look “clean”.  (leans in and whispers) She says dat’s somethin’ da women folk will unnerstand. Altho’ it does come in two more furmulas, Extra Strength scent free and Gently Scented. Da purrice ranges from $17.99 to $18.99. As always you can save ifin you set up an auto ship. And dat savings is on every shipment, not just da furst one. Da key benefits listed on da chewy website are as follows:

Key Benefits

  • Scoops easily, stays clean

  • Eliminates ammonia odors

  • 99.9% dust free

  • Resists tracking

  • Longer lasting

  • For single & multiple cats

 BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

Anyways, When it arrived mommy immediately took it outta da box so Raena could have a new play toy, da box not da litter. 

      I’s luvs those Chewy boxes sis Dezi. They are sooooo much fun. Mommy even let me play a little befur she got da box emptied.

 Raena sitting on the BoxieCat Cat litter in a chewy box

Okay Raena, but we’re still not reviewin’ da boxes. Now back to da litter. Mommy said it was like liftin’ a ton of bricks. Fur any who aren’t furmiliar with dat expression, it means it’s Heavy. It’s a full 16 pounds and feels like more. Now here’s a little side note fur ya’, notice da name of da litter says “natural”? Mommy says she had never really thought ‘bout it when she says dat we be natural litter kitties, so she immediately picked up da dictionary and looked up da word clay. Here’s what she found out. Clay is a fine grained natural rock or soil that is plastic due to it’s water content or when wet and is used to make bricks. Hmmmmm  Dat’s really innerestin’. Ifin ya’ have a kitty with feline acne, ya’ might wanna think ‘bout dat.  

 BoxieCat Clay Cat Litter

       Ya’ reckon dat’s where dat sayin’ came from sissy? You know, like a ton of bricks?  

Me doesn’t know Raena. Where do you get these questions from anyways?.

 Back to what me was sayin’. Da BoxieCat clay litter is NOT flushable, so there’s no way mommy could mix it with our normal litter. She got out a new box and cut open da bag. So far so good. Dat means there was no dust poofin’ outta da bag. Now ‘member this bag was really heavy, so mommy got a bench to set it on and pour from. (She usually uses a bench cuz she’s not posed to be liftin’ stuffs.) Oh me cats, dust was all up mommy’s nostrils and in her face. Maybe ifin da bag had been closer to da box dat wouldn’t have happened. Da bag is resealable, but we’re big kitties, and have jumbo or giant sized pawdee boxes so we needed da whole bag. Mommy did try da sealer to check it’s functionability, and found it to be difficult to seal. Once mommy got da BoxieCat litter spread out in da new box, it was ‘bout 1” to 1-1/2” deep. Now mommy had been told dat Raena was usin’ clay in her furmer residence (We highly doubted dat since she didn’t seem to know what a pawdee box was and used da piddle pads instead) so mommy expected her to be da furst to use da BoxieCat litter. 

       Dat’s not very nice of you to say sissy. I’s coulda been scared, or just not liked… 

(Dezi butts in)  Okay Raena, me’s sorry. Now can we get back to our review? 

        Fank you sissy, I’s sorry fur buttin’ in. Do you want me to tell everypawdy ’bout it? 

No Raena, me will take it from here.

 

BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

Well, it’s been down since da day after we received it a few weeks ago and neither one of us has even gotten in da box. Mommy hasn’t even caught us sniffing it and not a paw purrint one. So we can’t tell you anythin’ ‘bout it’s odor controlling capabilities. Nor can we say much ‘bout da dust factor as kitty claws and digs. But, mommy did finally take some out and put it in a bowl to check it’s clumping purropurrties. Da BoxieCat clay litter clumps fast and hard and sure nuff had a flat top. Da clumps are also quite heavy and should be disposed of in da trash can. Somethin’ to note fur long haired kitties, da liquid spread out fast and left a wide gummy wet clump. As fur tracking, mommy can say dat by looking at it and based on her many years of experience, it’s going to track. But, litter tracking is just one of those things dat go along with sharin’ your life and home with a kitty and a litter box. Get a good vacuum and just enjoy your furry purrer.

 BoxieCat Clay Cat litter

So what’s our rating fur da BoxieCat clay clumping litter? It’s made right here in da USA, so fur us dat’s a plus. There was no scent other than dat of clay. This is always a pawsitive as we cats don’t like scents in our toilets.  It clumps hard and fast. A good thing especially ifin you have more than one kitty or a line at da pawdee box. There was a dust cloud when pouring from a foot above da box. It is on da heavy side, but not any more so than similar clay litters of similar size (mommy checked around). Mommy thinks it’s a bit purricy fur a clay litter based on her research. But, ifin you’re one of those dat luvs your clay litter, this would be a purrfect choice. Unscented will get us on your side every time. A big paw up and thumb up fur dat. And mommy says clay makes fur excellent face and body masks (mommy kept out a little fur her own use when furst opening the bag).  

       OMC Dezi are you sayin’, Is dat what mommy had on her face da other day?  

 Raena standing on the BoxieCat cat litter and looking up at the camera

World’s Best: Blest Sunday #ChewyInfluencer

Well it’s time fur another Blest Sunday. You know me feels so blest to have a furever home with a mommy who luvs me more than anything and all our wonderful furiends. So when me can add a material blessing, me is always quadrupely blest. As you all know we luv Chewy.com and are thrilled to be pawrt of their blogging family known as #ChewyInfluencers. This month we got to try out a new litter. Well it’s new to us but some of you already use it. We’ve heard lots of good things ‘bout it so we couldn’t wait to receive it.

Dezi laying on the vanity

Me’s in da pawdee box room cuz me’s got a pawsum litter to tell you ’bout.

Chewy Logo

So what litter is it you ask? It’s da World’s Best Cat Litter Scoopable Multiple Cat Clumping Formula. We received da 7 pound bag. As most of you know, me is a big kitty who has a big litterbox. World’s Best says it works best with at least 2 to 3 inches of litter in da pan. Da 7 pound bag would be adequate for a small to medium size box. So mommy layered da World’s Best over me’s other litter so me could give it a try.

 World's Best Cat Litter

Chewy’s website doesn’t really say what makes up the World’s Best Cat Litter, but ifin you scroll over da foto it says it’s made from whole kernel corn and is 100% natural. And it’s flushable. Dat’s always a pawsitive in our books. They do make several different formulas. They all appear to be clumping but some are made with pine and some are scented while da one we chose is not. Truth be told, kitties don’t like scented litter. Companies do dat to appeal to da humans who do da buying. Below is a list of attributes listed about World’s Best Litter.

Dezi looking in the World's Best Cat litter bag

So what did me think about it? Well initially me kept smelling it and trying to taste it. So mommy had to mix it up with me’s current litter so me would use it fur it’s intended purr-puss. After mixing me used it without a thought. Me didn’t notice any dust so to speak when me was diggin’ so no sneezin’. It took care of me’s business so me gives it 2 paws up. Now let’s ask mommy what she thinks.

Is me supposed to eat this or pee on it?

Thank you baby. I’m glad you liked the World’s Best Cat Litter. I also didn’t notice any dust to speak of and love that it’s natural and flushable. I didn’t like seeing you trying to eat your litter, so there’s apparently a fragrance of some sort that you associate with food. But that was easily fixed by mixing it. And you made no further attempts once you had actually used it for its intended purpose. As you can see by the floor, it does track. The 7 pound bag is $6.99 and the largest bag at 28 pounds is $25.55. So pricewise it’s pretty equivalent to what we already spend on a bag of litter. It clumps nicely. So all in all I give it thumbs up too.
