It’s a classic cat-tale–Enviro Girl’s feline is pooping all over the house, kicking up cat litter all over the basement, acting ornery about her litter box. Enviro Girl has tried all the classic tricks–clean out the litter box, change the food from dry to wet, banish Lady Vi to the basement or outside. Finally she conceded it was time to buy a new litter box, and while at the store, Enviro Girl noticed a new cat litter for sale.
Enviro Girl HATED the cat litter she was using–it had a strong perfumey odor, was terribly dusty and seemed to kick all over the floor in nasty little gritty sheets. Swheat Scoop proclaimed itself a natural wheat litter–wheat? Wheat?
With nothing to lose at this point, she grabbed a box. Swheat Scoop promised to eliminate odors and not have a chemical-perfumey smell. It would clump, produce less dust, be safe for the cat and be 100% biodegradable. Biodegradable? Yes, even compostable (after scooping). AND Swheat Scoop is sewer and septic safe. Which means no more wrapping clumps in newspaper and throwing in the trash. Sure, it cost a bit more than the other cat litter, but if it did all it promised, it was totally worth $2 extra to Enviro Girl.
The verdict? Lady Vi is using her litter box once more. The room does not smell because her waste is flushed and other odors are absorbed through the wheat enzymes. Wheat’s a renewable resource and by composting the leftover litter, the environmental footprint of cat litter is nearly ZERO. Enviro Girl also liked how the box was not lined, meaning NO litter was wasted while pouring it out into the litter box. Check out the Swheat Scoop site to learn where you can buy Swheat Scoop Natural Wheat Litter–Enviro Girl bought her box at Target, but it’s also sold at PETCO and PETsMART.
