Disclosure: As a part of the Purina® Tidy Cats® Insider Program I am being compensated for this post. The opinions are our own. We were provided free Tidy Cats LightWeight 4-in-1 Strength Cat Litter for this review but I want to point out that we purchased this product on our own after it was released.
Tidy Cats Cat Litter has been a part of our family for as long as I can remember. But I can tell you, I don’t remember anything like this, it doesn’t look like the other litter packages that I’ve seen Dad lugging in through the garage. Dad actually purchased this litter shortly after it came out, even though we’ve been known not to get too excited about making changes to much of anything.
As most of you know, we’re a family of seven cats, six downstairs, and one upstairs. We have quite a few litter boxes and keeping up with them can be quite the chore for our human staff. From watching Dad, it’s quite obvious that most litters are quite heavy. So, when this hit the market the Dad easily picked up some for us to try.
But, there is a lot more to the Tidy Cats LightWeight 4-in-1 Strength Cat Litter, see, it says so right here on the label. Look here, it says it controls ammonia, urine and fecal odors, that’s sure a good thing. It says it clumps tight for easy scooping, which would be darn good because sometimes the non-tight clumps scatter all over the place. Of course it’s 50% lighter compared to leading clumping litters.
We gave it a whirl and overall we were pretty pleased with the results. We were a little concerned about two things, was it dusty and would the scent bother two of my sisters that have asthma. First, we didn’t find this litter to be any dustier that the regular litter we use. Really, most litters seem to be dusty when pouring them into the litter boxes. The scent seemed a little unusual to us at first but once it was in the litter box for a while none of us seemed to pay any attention to it.
How did it do controlling odors? I’ve got to say that they typical litter box odors seemed to not be noticeable at all and most humans would be quite pleased with that. Then there is the clumping thing, how did it do? The clumping action was totally amazing, nice and tight and it didn’t fall off or scatter at all when the Dad or Mom scooped the boxes. Overall the Tidy Cats LightWeight 4-in-1 Strength Cat Litter does what it says it will do. What about the LightWeight thing?
Sister Precious, the upstairs sister, has two litter boxes of her own. It really hasn’t been easy for Dad trying to tote the heavier litters upstairs to her gated community. Dad actually carried two of these upstairs at the same time, pretty impressive! Dad has a bad back, so anything that makes it easier for him is always a plus.
Dad decided to put the Tidy Cats LightWeight 4-in-1 Strength Cat Litter in one of her boxes. Sister Precious used the box with the new litter right off the bat and has continued to use it. This litter works great for our older kitty Precious since it doesn’t require much effort to dig and cover. It looks like Sister Precious says this one is a keeper too.
