Hey Cats, Want The Scoop On A New Litter You’ll Like?

The joy of litter box cleaning is rivaled by root canals and filing tax forms. Humans have long schemed and plotted ways around this charming chore, from bribing others to do it for them to placing multiple litter boxes around in hopes of minimizing or delaying the inevitable cleanup. (Cats of course would gladly handle the task on their own, if only they had thumbs.)

So when our friends at Fresh Step told us about a new litter that includes the welcome presence of Febreze—which has freshened the home of many a cat parent—we were intrigued, and of course, consult-cats Starli and Shamrock were eager to test it for themselves. The fun, limited edition box it arrived in—complete with a spill of shiny cat-themed confetti!-- proclaimed that this was indeed “Breaking Mews”—and so it is.

After a seven-day trial, the cats declare Fresh Step with the Power of Febreze just purrfect. Its paw-friendly texture feels pleasant--Starli, who has always announced with a loud meow when it’s time for her to visit the box, seems to especially like the ‘sandbox’ effect-- and gives off that spring-like scent, so any whiff of unpleasant eau de litter box is completely absent While many litters leave us with that coating of litter dust settling on every surface, in this case it’s “Dust? What dust?” Its clumping power is over-the-top, tightly locking down the cats’ “input” so that scooping is a snap. And with a variety of options—Odor Shield, Lightweight Extreme, Multi-Cat and Extreme [for the worst of odors, perhaps when a cat is having digestive issues]—Fresh Step with the Power of Febreze provides the answer for every litter box question.

This new litter’ll be available to all cat parents shortly, and will premiere at the Catdance Film Festival on Jan. 23 in Park City, Utah, one of Tabbytales’ fave events.
