We have a new vet!
I’m happy to have found a vet clinic that meets the needs of my family. They’re friendly, caring folks and knowledgeable. I am relieved.
This past Saturday June Buggie gave them a try. He had an annual exam and vaccinations to include blood work to test his thyroid level. He did well, according to the clinic staff, and no one came away with injuries. The blood is being sent out for testing so I will have results later this week.
Now let’s talk about litter. And let me start by saying I was NOT asked to write this and am NOT being compensated in any way by anyone for this review.
In my never-ending search for the ideal cat litter, I have found a product I love. I actually bought this as one of the lightning deal thingies on Amazon. I thought, hey, for the price, it’s worth giving it a try.
If only the cats thought so.
Okocat is litter made from wood shavings. It clumps, is flushable, and lasts longer than clay litter. Oh, and is MUCH lighter. This large box weighs 18 pounds, and does the same as a 30+ container of regular clay litter.
There’s no dust. The granules are easy to see, so easy to sweep up. And it’s reclaimed wood, so it’s not like they’re cutting down trees just to make litter for my cats.
But the cats are not warming up to Okocat like I’d hoped.
I started out with Okocat in one litter box, and have moved up to two. They are slowly coming around, but the clay is still used far more often. Oh well, I’m not giving up yet.
In fact, the only thing I don’t like about Okocat (except for the fact the cats haven’t warmed up to it, of course) is that I have to order it online. KMart sells it locally, but there’s no store convenient to work and no stores in the area where I live. And, well, I have Amazon prime so why drive out of my way when I don’t have to?
But I would prefer to use a product I can buy locally.
Oh well, can’t have everything, can you?
