Is Your Cat Getting More and More Chubby?

This is Raja, our overweight cat!

Raja started out a reasonably svelte 12 lbs when we got her from a local shelter at age 7. Then, barely 2 years later, she was up to a hefty 15 lbs!

Diet cat foods were no help. Then, I happened to read a book: "Your Cat, Simple New Secrets To A Longer, Stronger Life" and it changed everything.

We invite you to follow our quest for a healthy weight-loss plan for this funny, personable and very talkative cat.

Hopefully, together we can help all our cats live healthier and thinner lives!

The Best Cat Litter In The World!

Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Litter

We've found it! Yes, we finally discovered the best cat litter in the world! And not a minute too soon.

Raja is such a delicate "lady" that she will pee and poop outside her box if it's dirty or smelly. So over the past few months we've tried lots of litter, hoping to find one that clumps nicely and keeps the smell to a minimum.

We Tried Them All
First, we tried all the cheap store brands from WalMart and PetSmart, but they were very dusty and left a coating of fine dust over the whole litter box room. Didn't clump very well either and, being inexpensive, they had no odor absorption.

We tried scented litter, but Raja didn't like the smell and frankly, neither did we. Smelled too much like a public bathroom.

Next we tried a fine-grained litter that didn't really clump very well, so her pee smell would remain in the box after scooping. It really didn't have the right consistency and our prissy miss Raja would sometimes go outside her box with this litter

Then we tried Tidy Cat clay litter. Nice big chunks that cats are supposed to like, but no clumping whatsoever. When you try to scoop up a big pee, it just falls apart and you end up leaving wet, smelly clay in the box.

We Ask An Expert (A Two-Cat Owner)
So, Lynn discussed our litter problem with her daughter. Colette has 2 cats and has been using Arm & Hammer Super Scoop for years without any "out of box" experiences.

It's Simply The Best
Lynn was ready to try it, so we got some at Petsmart. Man, what a difference!

First of all, it pours easily without any dust. But most important, it absorbs like crazy! Lynn cleans Raja's box once a day and that works fine with this litter because the pee is completely contained by the litter. This keeps the smell down and stops the pee from spreading in the box the next time Raja steps in. And of course it contains baking soda which helps absorb the odor too.

We thought it was a little pricey, it's around $12 for 30 pounds, but we were pleasantly surprised when we found that we didn't have to change the litter out as often with this product! Because it clumps so well, it holds the pee easily in a large clump which stays together when you scoop it out. So, once you remove the clumps, you pretty much have a clean and odor-free litter box. That means we don't have to dump the whole box as often due to the buildup of left-over smelly litter. It just doesn't happen with Arm & Hammer Super Scoop!

So, considering that we are using the same litter for longer periods and just adding a little to "top it off" once in a while, it's probably costing less or at least the same as the other inferior brands we already tried.

We All Come Out Smelling Like Roses!
That's a real win-win-win. Raja likes it and she goes in her box all the time now (win), we like it because it keeps her box neater and it's easier to scoop when the pee stays in a clump (win), and it absorbs odors effectively (win).
