Okay, I have a confession to make. I am officially the Crazy Cat Lady. All I need is a broken shopping cart, some fancy crocheted doilies, and odd, mismatched clothing. Alright, so that is a bit of an exaggeration. But I do love my kitties!
It's funny that I am now a multiple cat owner because I had always assumed I hated cats. I used to be severely allergic, so I just kind of stayed away from them at all costs. I don't think it helped that all the cats my Mom had growing up seemed completely evil and twisted. So in my mind, cats had a totally awful reputation.
After we moved here to Ohio, when the weather got cold, everything changed. You see, we had mice getting into the house and I absolutely freaked out. So when nothing else seemed to work, I broke down and told my husband we needed to get a cat. This made him question who I was and what I had done with his cat-despising wife!
So we ended up rescuing Noodles, a big fat cat who ended up being an excellent mouser. It wasn't long before the mice stopped seeking refuge in my house. I also realized that my cat allergies had been outgrown and that cats are actually pretty awesome. They do their own thing, and come for attention when they want it. (Unlike our dogs that follow me around and drive me crazy all day! Of course I adore our pups, but cats are much more my style.)
Soon after, we adopted Pringles. She was a rescue that came from a high kill shelter in New York City. This Calico beauty was on death row and had less than a day to live. Originally, we were intending to foster her for someone else who was out of town, but that fell through. I'm actually glad, because we have gotten quite attached to Pringles. When we got her, she was very sick and emaciated. She is now a fat, fat cat who weighs about 16lbs!
Then for my birthday, Dan surprised me. He told me to get into the car, and we drove for about an hour. We arrived at a house out in the country, and were greeted by a woman who had 3 adorable kittens. Two of them were Torties, and the other was solid black. Dan told me to choose one. Well, I did....But I didn't choose the one that he liked best, so we ended up leaving with both of the Torties! They are now named Havarti and Truffles. They're only a few months old, and they're adorable!
So needless to say, with 4 cats, we're not getting any more pets any time soon. But we love the ones we have more than anything. The only thing I don't like, other than hairballs, is cleaning the litter box. With multiple cats, it can get really smelly and pretty darn gross. We have tried several different kinds of litter. Some have been alright, and others, not so much.
Recently, I got the opportunity to try Cat's Pride Fresh & Light litters. This was a brand I had not tried before, so I was eager to see how it held up to my kitties doing their business. This litter comes in 2 varieties: Quick Action, which is scented, and Fragrance Free Odor Control.
Cat's Pride is the only litter recommended by the American Humane Association, and is low-dust, quick clumping, and is also 25% lighter than other clumping clay litters.
I have to say, I really like this litter. It is easy to pour, spreads well, and doesn't kick up a ton of dust. It also definitely helps reduce odors that are often associated with owning multiple kitties. Now when I go into the mud-room, I am never hit with any unpleasant odors. I like both the varieties, although I do have a slight preference for the Quick Action scented kind. It has a light, fresh scent, and my cats don't seem to have an aversion to it like they do some other scented litters.
Do you have multiple cats? What are their names? How do you combat kitty odor issues? I'd love to hear about it!
