I recently got the opportunity to try out a Litter One litter box solution. This eco-friendly option is a wholly self-contained unit that uses pine litter pellets and lasts 4-6 weeks.
I initially scoffed at the idea that a litter box could last six weeks before the litter needed to be replaced. And, I wasn’t sold on pine litter. The last time I tried a pine-based litter it reeked like Pine-Sol. I hate perfume-y litter, so was skeptical that Litter One would last more than a week in my house. I was surprised that the Litter One pellets had almost no odor, save for a barely perceptible “fresh” smell. But would it hold up to cat waste?
Litter One has a patented system that works like this: the pellets turn to sawdust when pee hits them and the sawdust falls to the bottom and sifts through a perforated “false floor” filter into a separate compartment.
This effectively makes scooping cat pee a thing of the past. It also keeps your cat from stepping on soiled litter. High built-in sides keep everything contained. The result? A cleaner home and a happier cat.
You dispose of poops as usual. There’s a handy handle on the side where poop bags are stored for use.
Did it last the six weeks? Amazingly (and this is a three-cat household), it did. Even allowing for a ramp-up period as the cats acclimated to a new box, it got a workout yet never reeked of cat waste. I was surprised that pee never seeped through the outer container.
This is a great option for eco-conscious cat owners as well as those looking for disposable litter box options. Litter One uses post-consumer materials and pine pellets that come from sustainable forest pine sources like the Forest Stewardship Council.
Being a “green” cat owner is a difficult job, and the choices are not always straightforward. Ultimately, the cat decides. After all, if the cat won’t use a particular kind of litter or litter box configuration, the best intentions are for naught. All three of my boys were very happy with this solution, and hubby gave it a big thumbs up. (No hubby didn’t utilize it himself, but appreciated the fact that it didn’t reek like a litter box.)
