@FreshStepLitter Extreme Odour Control Cat Litter Review

I’m willing to give anything a try when it comes to my cat and his undesirable litter box odours. So, needless to say, I was pumped when I got Fresh Step Extreme Odour Control cat litter to review!

When it comes to cat litter, unfortunately, I know through experience that they are not all the same! Fresh Step has stepped up above a few others that I will not go back to. There are a couple ingredients that help in making this cat litter different from a few others that I have tried. First is the activated carbon, which is a natural filter that can remove impurities like odour.

The second is paw-activated fragrance, which is a mild fragrance that is only released with paw movement. Unfortunately, the fragrance is that which you would expect from any cat litter. But these two extras seem to be worth it when most only have the absorbent clay (which clumps with use) and anti-microbial ingredients that help stop the growth of bacteria. Both totally useful ingredients, and among those in Fresh Step as well, but make a difference when all combined to combat against odour. I found this to be a pretty decent product!

Did you know, Cats who love their litter boxes are less likely to seek out inappropriate elimination spots in the house.  Here are a couple of tips courtesy of Fresh Step that can help your cat learn to love its litter:

Cats prefer bigger bathrooms, so purchase the
largest litter box you can find or consider using a
large plastic storage container instead. Find a
box that’s at least twice the length of your cat.

If you started with a small litter box for your
small kitten, make sure you upgrade to a larger
litter box as your cat grows.

Boxes should be easily accessible but not in heavily trafficked zones

Special considerations should be taken into account for young, geriatric and
infirm cats—these cats may need boxes in very accessible locations.

Avoid placing litter boxes next to noisy appliances and/or turn off the buzzer
functions on those appliances (e.g. washing machines, dryers).

If there are multiple cats in the home, there should be multiple litter boxes in
different locations throughout the house.

Use litter with a good odour-controlling ingredient such as carbon. Fresh
Step  litter products contain a patented carbon odour controlling
technology that helps keep the litter box smelling fresh and clean.

You can find Fresh Step located now in Canada at your local Walmart.
