MK: And the second product we're reviewing from Chewy this month ... TADA!!!

BC: {looking one way} HMPH. Not over here ...

{Pause}
BC: {looking the other way} I don't see anything but litter.

MK: Exactly!
BC: You want to know what I think about that?
{Pause}
BC: HMPH!

{Pause}
BC: I'm not talking to you unless you drop this whole thing.
EM: But she isn't holding it!
{Silence}
EM: The back of disrespect! That's cold! It can't be THAT bad! You didn't even try it!

MK: It certainly smells good.
BC: What is WRONG with you?!?! Do you go around sniffing people's toilet paper?!?!
MK: Here. I'll pour some out for you to smell! Look at this!
EM: Momma's right! It smells good! {LOUD SNIFF} Niiiice ....
BC: Not you too! OH, GET A ROOM!

{Pause}
BC: Suck up!
{Momma pours some of the new litter in litter box and then goes to bed}
{The next morning ... Momma's in bed asleep}
EM: MEOW MEOW MEOW M'OW M'OW M'OW!!!
MK: Huh?!? Ellie! You're sitting a few inches from my face! You don't have to meow so loudly. I hear you!
EM: MEOW MEOW MEOW!!!
MK: You're talking too fast for me to interpret what you're saying!
EM: MEOW MEOW DADDY MEOW M'OW M'OW GONE!!!
BC: She wants to know where The Boy is. She said that she's standing at his spot in the bed and he's not there.
MK: He went to work! And besides, you never cuddle with him in bed like you do me!
EM: M'OW M'OW MROW! MROOOOOOW! M'OW!
BC: Uh oh. So much for being a nice cat. I'm out of here. BYE!
MK: What?!?! What'd she say?! BEAR!?!? HELP!
EM: MROOOOOOW! M'OW! M'OW M'OW MROW!
MK: I'm trying to sleep!
EM: HMPH!
{Smack!}
EM: Isn't my tail pretty, Momma?
BC: {from the other room} Pretty annoying!!!
MK: ELLIE! Get your tail OUT of my face!
BC: {from the other room} That thing's a menace!
EM: My Daddy likes to see my tail.

BC: {from the other room} Your Daddy isn't here!!!
MK: No. When you're on his lap, you whap ME with your tail.
EM: Then you're used to it!
BC: {from the other room} Cut it off, Momma!
EM: You're just jealous because I actually have a tail ... vs. the string you have!
BC: {from the other room} HEY! Momma always says it's not the size that matters - but how you use it! And you use yours to annoy everyone else!
EM: HEY!
MK: {desperate to change the subject} So what's wrong?
EM: My Daddy! He's NOT here! He SHOULD be here ... this is his half of the bed!
MK: Half?!?!?!? Hahahahaha.
BC: {from the other room} HAHAHAHAHAHA.
MK: You're not helping, Bear.
BC: {from the other room} More like his three-fourths.
{Ellie just stares at Momma}
MK: We're SO unfunny.
EM: It didn't come from me.
BC: {from the other room} But you still thought it!
EM: Why are you in bed, Momma?
MK: The Boy went to work and I'm sleeping a little longer.
EM: But ... but ... this is HIS spot. He should be here!
MK: Maybe. But you never have anything to do with him when he's in bed.
EM: I just like knowing he's there.
MK: So you're telling me off because he's not here?
EM: You made him leave ... or killed him!
BC: {from the other room} We can only hope. One less Dweeble in the world.
EM: HEY! That's my DADDY you're talking about!
BC: {from the other room} You mean the guy who chased you around for fifteen minutes because you lost that lovin' feelin'?
EM: I was playing hard to get!
BC: {from the other room} Kind of hard when you're the size of a barn! You make a huge target. You can't even fit under the bed anymore.
EM: Hmph. I made sure my Daddy appreciates me. I don't give my milk away for free.
BC: {from the other room} MIND BLEACH! LOTS of mind bleach! And steel wool. I don't want to know anything about your milk or whether you give it away for free!
EM: I didn't mean lit ...
BC: {from the other room} What the @#$%!?!?

{Pause}
BC: {from the other room} Something's fishy!
EM: Fishy?! FOOD?!?! Is there FOOD?!?! Wait for me! Wait for me!
BC: {from the other room} HMMMMM ... {GRUNT} ...hph ... I'm gonna blow!
EM: YOU ATE THE FISHY WITHOUT ME!
MK: Bear? What's going on? Did you eat an entire bowl of kibble again just so Ellie couldn't have it?
EM: {taking off to the room Bear's in} Where's the fishy?
BC: {from the other room} I gotta go ... I gotta go ... {GRUNT} ... Peepee dance! Peepee dance! I really gotta go!
MK: We don't need the sound effects! Why don't you go in the litter box? I just added litter last night.
BC: {from the other room} Smellie RUINED our litter box.

MK: Is she having diarrhea again?
BC: LOOK! NO! She contaminated the litter so severely that it turned an entirely DIFFERENT color!
MK: {jumping out of bed and running to look at the litter box} Wha ... 
EM: I didn't ruin anything!
MK: Except my sleeping in!
BC: You have cats! You should know better!
{Pause}
MK: {seeing the litter box} Phew!
BC: Well, I'm glad YOU'RE relieved ... is it too much to ask to have the same opportunity?
EM: I didn't ruin our litter box! I swear!

MK: Bear, the litter's fine. That's the new stuff we're trying. Remember?
BC: But it's not the right color! I can't pee or poop unless the litter is the right color! If it's not gray, it ain't clay!
MK: You're right! It's not clay. This litter is a 100% corn and pine blend - natural, biodegradable ingredients - without chemicals or added fragrances. They claim it's low dust - but I guess that's a matter of opinion because I did see a bit of dust. Not bad ... and certainly not as bad as our current litter. Formulated to fight the toughest odors, its natural pine scent provides outstanding odor control to keep your home smelling fresh and clean. Chewy says, "This ultra-absorbent formula is up to 3 times more absorbent than traditional clay litter." We'll see. You can see for yourself on the back of the bag.
BC: Blah blah blah blah blah! I gotta pee!
MK: I only used half of the new stuff for the litter box. Dig a little and you'll find the old stuff. I figured half and half would be a good adjustment step.
BC: I don't see you going around trying toilets! Much less NATURAL ones! When's the last time you peed in a bush? Oh, sure ... gets what's on sale for US!
MK: It wasn't on sale!
BC: Did you steal it?
MK: NO!
BC: Then you're even worse than I thought! This better not come out of my treat budget!
MK: Wait! We got it as part of the Chewy Influencer program.
EM: I TOLD you I didn't ruin it!
BC: LITTER?!? AGAIN?!?! What's wrong with you, WOMAN! What's exciting about litter! We get to choose TWO products a month ... and one of your choices was LITTER?!?! You act like new litter is a PRESENT. WOO-HOO! I just won a toilet! In a color that clashes with my tabbiness! Fix it.


EM: To be fair, nothing's really exciting about food either ... until you barf it up. Then the party starts!
BC: If you didn't try to race Momma to it, it wouldn't be nearly as exciting.
EM: HEY! It's food! I LOVE food!
BC: A little too much ... if you know what I mean.
MK: BEAR! Just go!
BC: Not until you fix my litter box.
EM: OUR litter box.
BC: Don't remind me. FIX IT, Momma! Or I'll find The Boy's shoes.
MK: Hang on. There! You can see the old stuff! Just try it!

BC: It smells wrong too!
MK: Come on, Bear. That's not fair. Yeah, there's kind of a strong smell from pine - but it's not unpleasant and I actually think it smells good.
BC: GOOD-SMELLING litter?!?! Did you hit your head on your way out of bed?!
MK: JUST GO!
BC: Fine! I'll go! But I'm doing it under protest!
{Pause as Bear climbs in the box}
BC: DO YOU MIND!?!? You're both watching me!
MK: I really like this litter so far - including how little the dust kicks up and the natural pine smell. We'll see how it does with tracking and clumping - those are the factors that mean the most to me. I know cat litter isn't glamorous - but it is necessary for happy and healthy kitties.
BC: Hmph. I can't tell the difference from the old litter.
MK: So the no-clay stuff is okay?
BC: Don't put a bunch of words in my mouth! It was fine!
MK: I don't think it's tracked either. Let's see about those clumps. Hmmm ... pretty tight clumps! I really like this litter! I had my doubts - especially after we tried the grass litter - but this is a winner. Whether we keep using it really depends on whether I can get it for a similar price as our usual stuff. I wouldn't pay much more than our usual stuff costs - but I admit this is at least as good - if not better.

{Momma turns her back to dispose of the litter box waste}
EM: La de da ... la da de ... hmmm. Not bad!
MK: Ellie, did you just use the litter box?
EM: Oops. I did it again.
MK: You both don't seem to mind this litter. And this litter is good with solid waste too.
{Pause}
MK: I love this new litter.
BC: Then YOU use it!
EM: I like it too!
BC: Just SHUT UP already! Momma's supposed to feel bad and give her poor beleaguered kitties treats ... and you BLEW the plan!
EM: Well, I'm just saying ... the litter is at least comparable to our usual stuff.
BC: DOH!
MK: Anyway.  As I've said before, Chewy is easy to love: they have a wide selection of QUALITY pet products, freshness is guaranteed, and they offer fast shipping and easy returns on all orders. With orders over $49, one to two day shipping is FREE! After hearing so many bloggers talk about Chewy's fast shipping, I was eager to see the difference for myself ... and sure enough! FAST! Much faster than any other seller I've encountered. Though my favorite part is 24/7 customer service. How many times have I been up late at night shopping for cat supplies, had a question, but couldn't ask it because chat wasn't available?

  1. Mrs H mistook this for cornflakes being used, and it put her right off her breakfast! Sounds like a great product too. The talk of pine brought an old expression back to mind... "Does a Bear poop in the woods?" well sounds like that runs true for this MOL

    PS Bear, if Ellie is concerned by The Boys disappearance, tell her to check the closet, thats always where they stash the body!

  2. Ohhhh mom never changes our litter. She's afraid to upset our routine.

  3. We've tried the low-dust stuff, but it never seems to work out. We'll look for this in stores.

  4. Thank you for the wonderful share. These stories get better each time. You have to let momma sleep in a little when dad goes off to work. She needs the much needed rest. Great review on the litter. Hopefully, you will get use to it right away. Even if it isn't the color gray. Have a great day.

  5. Glad this litter is a winner! Even better that it didn't come out of the treat budget! Maybe next time Chewy will send treats, though.

  8. AMARULA: That dunder-head Frodo actually likes to play and roll around in the litter! Seriously--the guy has no class! I don't know how you share a litter box with that so-called sister of your Bear!!

  9. That does sound like great litter but I guess a change is hard to get used to. Could be they don't like the smell. Cats are just so fussy. Have a good day.

    1. They didn't mind this litter a bit. I'm surprised how little the change affects them!

  10. I bet that does smell really good! Bear is right though - probably not the most exciting freebie choice for kitties ;)

  13. We’ve never been fans of litters made of pine. We’ll stick to our clay...because it sticks to us. :)

  14. Looks like you could make some art with that to send to The Trout Towne Tabbies art gallery :)

  15. The lady is always on the hunt for dust free, non tracking litter. Bear, good job on giving it a try in spite of your concerns. I'm the same way with new litter. Ellie, you're such a sweetie pie!

  16. Bear and Ellie Mae...how can they expect you to use the litter unless they send you some food there will be not deposits

  18. I can sympathize, 'cause I got a package in the mail the other day and it's a box of litter too. But it's not the same one you got. Purr-sonally, I am happy with the brand I've been using for several years, but Mom seems to think I need to try a new one just like your momma did with you. What's with our mommas thinking we want purr-esents of litter anyway?! I think we should get our momma's rolls of tp for their birthdays. Tee hee hee.

    1. TOTALLY! Or a trash can or something like that! We swore by one litter for years - and then we tried another brand and we liked it better! You never know.

  19. We had a litter Sam liked, though I didn't love it (even though it was natural). Then we couldn't get it anymore, so we're trying a new one, mixed with the old. So far she's not using it. :( Cats can be so contrary! But Momma probably knows that from living with Bear. :)

    1. I have a feeling the kitties would've been more hesitant with this litter if I hadn't mixed it with clay litter. The grass litter was very similar and they tried really hard to not have to go in it. Sheesh.
