With multiple cats in our home, changing the litter boxes can be a royal pain in the you know where. We have 4 litter boxes, which are strategically placed around our house. There is one in the living room, one in the library, and 1 in each of our 2 pantries. We try and space them out quite a bit, since our cats don’t like to be crowded when they do their business, and no one likes waiting in line. Sounds a lot like people, right?
Lugging around a huge box or pail of litter can be more than a little awkward. I usually have my soon to be 17 year old son do litter duty, since he’s a strapping young man and can handle carrying around heavy things. He doesn’t mind, and only gripes a little. Can you really blame him, though? No one thinks lugging around 40-ish lbs. of cat litter is fun. I know I don’t!
That’s why I was super excited to learn about the newest cat litter in the Fresh Step® line up. Fresh Step Compact Packs offer 34 or 38 lbs. of litter, but instead of being in a cumbersome pail or box, they are separated into easy to carry packages. Why didn’t someone think of this sooner?!
The Fresh Step Compact Pack features the equivalent of a 34 or 38 lb. box packaged in four smaller packs designed to make the litter experience more convenient. The Compact Packs are better designed to store in and around the home, and easier to pour into the litter box. It’s perfect for homes with multiple cats (and multiple litter boxes), not to mention easier to store for apartment dwellers and those without a lot of space.
Fresh Step Compact Packs will be available at your favorite retailers in March of this year, but we got to get a little sneak peek. This new litter comes in 3 great formulations, so you’re sure to find the perfect litter for your household pets.
The available litters will include:
Fresh Step with Febreze Odor Shield Fresh Step with Febreze Multi-Cat Fresh Step with Febreze Extreme
We received the Fresh Step with Febreze Extreme to try out with our kitties. We love this formulation, and find that it helps keep our house fresher, even with 6 cats doing their business here. The Febreze freshness definitely helps to minimize any kitty-funk. This is a HUGE plus, since litter boxes can smell pretty darn nasty at times.
The first thing we noticed about these packs were their size. They are incredibly compact, making it easy to store them almost anywhere. You can keep them in a cupboard, closet, pantry shelf….Anywhere, really! They do not take up a lot of space, so it makes organizing easy and painless.
These packs are also very easy to open and pour. Since the packages are smaller, there’s less chance for spillage, and there’s also less dust kicked up than while pouring from a larger container of litter. Pour a little in each box, or add an entire Compact Pack to one box. Either way, there’s no more lugging heavy boxes from room to room.
Our cats are already used to Fresh Step litter, so there was no protest poops to be found when we switched to this litter. They were, however, curious about the new little packages. Check out Mary Jane and Cheeseball scoping out their freshly filled litter box! In the next room, Truffles can be seen hanging out, waiting her turn to “go”. She’s one of my more polite cats, and doesn’t mind taking turns.
Overall, we’re definitely very pleased with this innovative new solution to litter woes. Fresh Step Compact Packs are easy to carry, easy to store, and easy to pour. Whether you have multiple cats and litter boxes, or a smaller living space with lack of storage, definitely check out these awesome new litter packages from Fresh Step. They certainly make life easier and changing the litter boxes a lot less painful….Literally!
