Kitty Poo Club Reviews
If you can’t stand the idea of cleaning out your cat litter box once a week, we don’t blame you. It’s not the most fun part of our week either.
Unfortunately, with regular litter, it’s something that you have to do.
Until Kitty Poo Club came along, that is.
They have a pretty unique product – a disposable box with litter in it.
Yes, that does mean that it’s made from cardboard, but it’s got waterproofing inside so it won’t leak.
what is kitty poo club made of?
It’s 100-percent natural silica crystals. There are no added chemicals, dies, or fragrances.
Is it safe for my cat?
There have been safety concerns raised over silica dust and cats with respiratory problems. That said, the same issues have been raised with clay litter. This option is dust-free, so that’s not an issue.
If your kitty tends to chow down on the litter, choose something like coconut fibers.
Asthmatics may also need to exercise caution when it comes to dust. In general, though, silica produces less dust than clay will.
why consider kitty poo club?
We're going to say at the outset that we prefer a more natural product like wood pellets. That said, not all wood pellets are going to be organic. If the company uses treated wood, it's not good for your cat. Also, there are cats that never take to the pellets.
The primary advantage of silica is that it locks in the smell. If you can’t abide the smell of cat urine, silica is worth considering.
The added advantage of this product is that it’s so easy to use. Every month, you get a new, cardboard litter box with the litter in it. All you need to do is to take off the lid, and it’s ready to go.
Cleanup is when you really see the advantage, though. You do have to scoop out the poop regularly, preferably every day. Then you just stir the litter. That's enough to take care of the odor.
After a month, simply toss the box in the garbage and get the new one. There's no scrubbing or anything necessary. This litter box option is about as hands-off as you can get.
Silica attracts the moisture and locks it away. Each crystal has excellent absorption properties.
The litter is a lot lighter than clay. Even when it’s completely saturated, it’s still pretty light.
It really doesn’t get any more convenient than this. Unless that is, you have someone who can scoop the poop for you. When you’re done with the box, you reseal the lid and dispose of it. The cardboard is biodegradable.
how well does it work for you?
We have to admit to being skeptical about this one at first. To start with, it’s a cardboard box. We had some serious concerns about it getting soaked through. We were proven wrong. The moisture does not seep through the box.
Apparently, that’s because of the waterproofing, and because the design allows the liquid to evaporate quickly. How did the box measure up otherwise? Let’s check that out.
Here it scores ten out of ten. You’re not going to catch a whiff of urine unless you’re actually stirring the litter, or it’s completely saturated.
There is going to be some tracking with any product of this type. It’s inevitable. The company has taken steps to minimize tracking by making the particles irregular shapes. It does seem to make a difference with the cat litter tracking.
the dust factor
If you run your hand through the silica when you first get it, you'll find very little dust with this litter. The particles are larger, so there is hardly any dust at all.
how long does it last?
We'll admit to being skeptical here as well. We're old-school when it comes to our cat's box. We do believe that it's a good idea to switch out regular clay or natural pellets about once a week. So, when the company said it would last a month, we weren't sure about it.
We were pleasantly surprised. One box lasts one month. You’ll need one per cat in the household, but it holds up well.
The boxes are made of durable corrugated cardboard and also stand a lot of wear and tear.
what do the experts say?
Cats will always be cats. Most should take to this straight away. It feels a lot like the more traditional clay particles. The crystals are easier on the paws than hard clay would be. They are still pretty hard, especially if compared to coconut or paper.
If your kitty has sensitive paws or has been declawed, she might not take to it.
You’ll no doubt love the pretty designs on the box. At first glance, you wouldn’t realize what it was.
It’s surprisingly an affordable cat litter. You pay just over $20 per box. That price includes shipping as well. That’s not a whole lot more than traditional options, especially considering the convenience.
If you’re currently using a premier brand, it might even save you some money.
- Reasonably priced
- Great odor control
- No dust
- Tracking minimized
- The boxes are pretty and biodegradable
- One box lasts a month
- It’s not the most eco-friendly solution
The verdict of these kitty poo club reviews
Overall, we like the basic idea. It’s perfect for someone who has a busy schedule and needs to minimize the amount of time spent cleaning. It’s also one of the best odor-control options. If you can’t stand the smell of cat urine, you’re going to love this.
If you consider the bonus of not having to clean out the dirty tray, that's also a plus. All you have to do is seal up the box and dump it in the garbage.
We'll give this 9 out of 10 purely based on the convenience aspect. We marked it down because the silica won't degrade quickly. Still, you'd have the same issue with clay. Also, we wear gloves when cleaning out the plastic boxes, so clay might even be a worse option.
Kitty Poo Club is the ultimate in convenient cat care.
