If you’ve been a reader here for a while then you probably know a couple of things about me:
- I care about my health and the health of my home environment.
- I’m a “mom” of two black cats and like any cat-mom, my cats are one of my greatest sources of joy. 😉 I adopted my first cat (Bilbo) in 2010 and my second cat (Frodo) a year later.
From my work as a Certified Holistic Health Coach and from my own experiences, I know that our health is so much more than what we eat. A big part of this blog focuses on eating local and organic foods and cooking from scratch, but I also think it’s important to talk about cleaner beauty products and cleaning alternatives that don’t involve harmful chemicals. This is why today I want to talk to you about cat litter. Yes, you heard me right: cat litter.
Here’s why: Many years ago when I was a new cat-mom and adopted Bilbo from the shelter, I had no idea that pets could have allergies just like humans. A few months after adopting him, I began to notice a small rash on his back near his tail and took him to the vet. The vet told me it was a skin irritation caused by an allergy and we began the cat-version of an elimination diet to figure out the cause. Luckily, I was already using DIY/natural cleaners around the house and feeding him a grain-free diet so we were able to rule out the first two concerns pretty easily.
However, over the next couple of weeks while we were searching for answers, Bilbo began to lose the hair on his back as his symptoms continued to get worse. The long-story-short is that after much stress and many sleepless nights I figured out the cause: his cat litter. It seems so silly to look back on it now and not have realized this when his symptoms first began, but especially with being a new cat-parent, it didn’t occur to me that the litter recommended to me by the shelter could have had such an effect. Now many years later, I’ve become even more conscious about every item that’s in my home and I think cat litter is an important topic because it not only impacts the health of our cats, but it impacts the health of humans in the home too.
This is why I switched to using Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter.
Here’s why I love it:
- Feline Pine™ 100% Natural Pine Cat Litter delivers the best natural odor control with no added fragrances. I love the natural pine smell and it’s amazing how well this works to neutralize strong odors on contact.
- No new trees are cut to make Feline Pine™ products. The litter is made from kiln-dried shavings reclaimed from lumber production. (How cool is that?!)
- It’s 100% Chemical Free! I love there are no added harsh chemicals, additives or synthetic perfumes!
- Feline Pine™ doesn’t leave a messy cloud of dust. Plus, if your cats are anything like mine, it means this doesn’t track litter or dust throughout the room (or house).
- The price! Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter is super affordable (about $6 for a 7-lb bag, $10 for a 20-lb bag, or $16 for a 40-lb bag) and you can find it at most grocery stores and pharmacies including Walmart, Target, and Amazon.
If you have cats, I would highly recommend trying Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter. It’s a great way to neutralize litter box odors in your home without the use of harsh chemical or synthetic perfumes – which is a win-win for you and your cats.
