The perfect cat litter for a small space: ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ MicroGuard™ Cat Litter + $100 giveaway!

\

 

What do you get when you combine 1,000 square feet, 5 people, and 2 large cats?

Challenging litter box placements!

We don't have a lot of space, and we need to fit three litter boxes amidst the chaos of kids' stuff, a home business, and the accoutrements of daily life. We have visitors frequently, so we tried hiding the litter boxes cleverly, but you know who didn't like that? The cats.

So for the sake of keeping happy cats happily using the appropriate containers, the litter boxes are out in plain sight — and plain smell. One is — don't judge! — in our dining room. There's literally nowhere else to put it, so we need reliable odor control.

Enter ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ MicroGuard™ Cat Litter.

ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ MicroGuard™ Cat Litter has a 7-day odor control — guaranteed. The MicroGuard™ technology works to prevent bacterial odors that would otherwise linger even after scooping. Now that's technology we can use!

Due to past pottying challenges, I was worried about replacing our cats' litter in one swoop (scoop?), so I bought a new (fourth) litter box that I could place near an established site. I needn't have worried! My cats immediately took to the ARM & HAMMER™ CLUMP & SEAL™ MicroGuard™ Cat Litter and have gleefully used it alongside their other boxes.

The litter is really nice for me as the cat owner to use. It has a pleasant fresh scent, and the clumping with moisture-activated Micro-Granules works really well to seal around cat waste for easy scooping.

For the cat, the texture is really lovely. It's made with fine micro-particles that are smooth on paws. If you have a cat who prefers a finer texture, this is perfect! The formula is ultra low dust, which keeps your kitty's experience cleaner and your floors cleaner, too.

But what about the smell? For science — for you! — I put my nose into the box after scooping. Deep in. And then I sniffed, gingerly. And then I sniffed again, with confidence. It smelled clean! Heavy-duty odor eliminators plus ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda seal and destroy immediate odors on contact, and the MicroGuard™ technology works to prevent the growth of bacterial odor before it begins.

It works! With regular scooping, you'll experience the confidence of 7-day odor control, no matter how out-in-the-open your litter boxes are.


 

 

 

Try it!

Since I own 2 large cats, and live in a small mobile home, litterbox odor control is always very important. I currently use Tidy Cat with Glade, but I wonder if "Glade" is safe for my cats? I might try this arm and hammer litter in your blog post since it is more natural than glade. Thanks for the review - your cat is a cutie!

I have one cat who does neat little rabbit pellet poos, and another cat who perpetrates great steaming cow pie poos. For the latter cat, we definitely need odor control!! And maybe a diaper! But no seriously, I rate odor control highly.

What a pretty cat- cats are my absolute favorite. Since I have a big beautiful boy, he is able to spit out messes to say the least.. so odor control is huge for me. Anything to minimize or reduce is completely favorable in my opinion!
