TJ Pine Cat Litter


pinecatlitterI haven’t posted before about any pet stuff and mostly concentrated on things us humans eat, but let’s face it, Trader Joe’s sells nice stuff for your furry friends, too!

One thing I’ve started buying on a regular basis is their PREMIUM PINE CAT LITTER. If you’ve only used clay type litters, this is very different. It’s made from pine sawdust thats been formed into little pellets. It has a good natural pine scent that is very helpful for odor control, naturally! When it gets wet, it basically disintegrates into well, wet pine sawdust.

Now this type of litter is a pretty big change from typical clay type litter so you’re instructed on the package to switch to it gradually by putting a layer of your normal litter on top of this pine litter until your cat accepts the pine litter on its own (mine did after a few weeks) Still every cat is different in their hygiene matters, so if you want to use this you have to try it and see if your cat will get used to it. Hopefully they will as this is good stuff, effective and cutting down odors and not as expensive as the same stuff sold in pet stores.

The bag says the 3.5 lb.’s inside is a “4 week supply”and thats about what it lasts for my one cat, if not a little more. I don’t have to buy (and lug home) the huge 25 lb. bags of clay litter anymore. Without getting into too much nitty gritty… my use is…I get rid of “solid waste” matter and spoon out any big wet soiled areas that have turned into the wet sawdust I mentioned*. Then I sprinkle on some more of the Pine Litter. It REALLY keeps smells to a minimum and lasts quite a long time without having to change the whole kitty box. So hard to say if it will work with any cat, but if you are patient, its worth a try.

*Tip: get a cheap 99 cents store plastic spoon to go with your other regular kitty litter scooper (the sawdust will just fall through that).

Even if you have to use it with clay litter forever, the pine litter will still help get the odors from your kitty box under control.

If I’m not mistaken a bag costs $3.50. Not a bad deal, compared to something similar in Petco.
