The number of litter box related products on the market is mind boggling at times. Here at the Happy Litter Box, we try to make some sense of it for you so we decided to put together a list of our favorite products….products that will change your life in 2013. Kinda like Oprah’s favorite things except much, much more practical!
Favorite Litter Box
For us, nothing beats a clear storage box. I’ve seen and tested lots of boxes this year and for us, a plain old clear storage box does the trick. The 28 Quart Clear Sterilite Storage Box is the perfect size for my boys but plenty of people like the larger sizes. At Amazon, $8.49
We’ve tried a lot of litters and will continue to test in order to offer our recommendations for options to try. We know that every cat and every situation is different so what works for some cats won’t work for others. There are lots of great litters on the market and we’ve tried a lot of them but nothing has made us want to switch from World’s Best Cat Litter . It’s lightweight, it scoops extremely well, it controls odor and….most important….my cats like it. Prices vary but you can get a 7-lb bag for less than $10. It lasts a long time so it’s definitely a good value.
Favorite Litter Scoops
I’m not afraid to talk about things that are exciting to me – like litter scoops. A crappy litter scoop can ruin your day. Oh, yes. You know what I’m talking about. You need to try the Litter-Lifter Kitty Litter Scoop. These scoops are super sturdy and have these smooth, triangular tines that litter litter-ally slides right through. They are fantastic for digging out the corners (why do all the cats like to pee in the same exact spot? In the corner of the box?) when they get gross. LOVE THESE. And everyone I know who has tried them loves them. And, they’re priced right at less than $7 a pop.
P.S. accept no substitutes! The original is the one that works. The others are just bad knock offs and you’ll be disappointed. For reals.
Favorite Litter Box Convenience
You may have seen my recent review of The Litter Genie but suffice it to say, I love this thing. It’s easy to use, convenient and it works at keeping the smell of litter bags at bay. You scoop the litter box, open up the top of the Genie, drop the offending clumps into the receptacle, close the lid and pull the lever. The “stuff” is dropped into another odor controlling bag in the base of the Genie, where it stays until you collect it. That part is easy too – open up the Genie, pull out the bag, cut it off on the attached cutter, tie it and then out to the gar-bage. Check out the Litter Genie Plus Cat Litter Disposal System on Amazon for the best price, usually around $19.00.
Favorite Odor Control
There are lots of great odor control items on the market but my favorite is Nose Offense, which is truly a little miracle in a bottle. Seriously, you can spray pretty much any stinky room or area a couple of times and the cat urine or poop odor disappears. It’s also useful on fabrics. Best of all? It’s non-toxic and fragrance free so it’s safe to use around your precious furballs. You can purchase at Nose Offense, starting at $12.49 for a 12 oz bottle. AND free shipping! BOOYAH! Plus, use the code ROMEO15 at check out for a 15% discount your entire order through Friday, Jan. 11.
And, just like Oprah, the Happy Litter Box is giving away all of the items above to some lucky readers (I wish we could give one of everything to ALL readers but well ya know. There’s the small difference between Oprah and me).
Here’s the scoop: THREE lucky readers get a set of Litter Lifter scoops, ONE lucky winner gets a Litter Genie, ONE lucky winner gets a 32 oz bottle of Nose Offense, ONE lucky winner gets a bag of World’s Best Cat Litter and ONE lucky winner gets a clear Sterilite 28 qt storage box!
Just leave a comment below, telling me what product you currently use that you can’t live without in your house (not necessarily from the list above; I want to hear about YOUR fave products)
I’ll do a drawing on Wednesday, January 9th at Noon EST to pick the winners!
Happy 2013 friends! Let’s make it a year chock full of HAPPY LITTER BOXES!
