Tea Time for Cats (Sponsored Post)


We all know how I love my cats, right? I'm pretty sure that if Jane would let me, I'd get about ten more. As it is, she hates Henry and only sometimes tolerates Tris. But, they're all my loves and I adore them.

When we moved into a smaller house a year and a half ago, we had to figure out where to put their cat boxes, since our house is so small. We decided one downstairs, which my mom takes care of, and then there's one in my bedroom, which is always open for them to get to. 

Having a cat box in my bedroom is actually like going back to my senior year of college when I had Henry and Jane in my dorm, and to hear my neighbors talk when they came to my room, you wouldn't know two cats lived in the space to smell it. 

We've been using a conventional clumping litter since we moved in, and when Chewy.com reached out to me to try some products for my cats, I got pretty excited when I saw WeRuVa Hinoki Wood and Green Tea cat litter

I've never heard of Hinoki wood, but apparently, it's used in Japanese architecture because of its ability to stand up to humidity. The green tea contains compounds with antibacterial properties that prevent odors.

Pros

So far, I like it. It's been two days, and there's still no cat odor in my room. The bag, itself, was really lightweight, which is great when carrying it upstairs. When I poured it out, there was no dust. The old stuff I used covered everything with dust. There wasn't any dust with this, which was great. 

Cons

The cats do seem to track this a bit more, but that might be because the pieces are bigger than the sand of what we're used to.

I use sifting liners, and these don't really sift which was disappointing, as the bag said it was clumping. If I switched to this permanently, I'd have to get a scoop. 

What do Jane, Henry, and Tris think?

Jane and Tris are quite the troopers. Tris was an outdoor cat when my sister brought her home, so she's pretty content with what she's given (though she's quite the Queen if you look at her). Jane is like me, and she'll probably use whatever lady's room is available to her. Jane hopped right into the box, did her thing, and left.

"Mom, I'm really not sure about this..."
Henry, on the other hand, has been acting like I have committed the ultimate betrayal against him. He's quite spoiled, having only lived with me or my parents his entire life. I think he could get used to it if he had to.
  • Do your cats like the litter you buy?
  • Have you tried WeRuVa?
