It’s said that dogs are man’s best friend, but cats are man’s best confidant! In fact, 50 percent of cat owners say they make better decisions after talking to their cat.* They are great companions and demand very little from us. A sunlit perch, good food, love and a litter box full of quality litter is about all a cat needs to live a long, healthy and happy life.
Of all those key elements in your cat’s happy life, cat litter is probably the least fun to deal with. It’s the one thing that gets every cat owner’s tail wagging. Not only is cleaning the litter box problematic for their owners, but so many cats have issues with using their own litter boxes. Many litter boxes and cat litters can be quite disgusting and frankly, uncomfortable for your cat to use. This creates an issue that is known as “litter box aversion”.
Litter box aversion is the #1 behavioral problem with cats and their owners these days.
“Millions of cats are surrendered to shelters due to litter box issues,” says The Cat Whisperer, Mieshelle Nagelschneider, internationally-acclaimed cat behaviourist, author and activist. “However, with a bit of patience, and a quality litter like Arm & Hammer™ Slide™ that guarantees 7-day odour control, has patented EZ Clean Technology meaning used litter slides right out and is soft on paws, litter box problems are some of the easiest to solve.”
