I have a friend who calls herself “The Crazy Cat Lady”. She’s always had cats as pets, and in the last few years ended up adopting/fostering some cats in need that showed up at her door. With 6 cats, she has a lot of litterboxes to deal with, so I try to save cat coupons for her whenever I can. So when I received a voucher for a free bag of Swheat Scoop Natural Cat Litter, I knew this would be “Purr-fect” for my BFF and her cat army!
I popped in to Petco, one of the retailers that carries this cat litter brand, and opted for a bag of the unscented Original Formula. Swheat Scoop is so named because it is made from naturally processed wheat – when I gave it to my resident cat litter expert, not only was she pleased to have a big bag of cat litter to take home, but she also mentioned that someone recently recommended she try a similar cat litter made from barley. She’d never tried a grain-based litter before so she was curious to see what it would be like!
Swheat Scoop had some pros and cons for my cat expert. She liked that the litter was light, and enabled her to fill up the catbox without breaking her back; it’s also more friendly to her yard than clay. However, it also didn’t clump as well for her as clay does, and her cats didn’t know what to make of it at first; apparently, the cats decided to relieve themselves in her bed over the catbox after the new litter came into play. The naughty kitties are getting a bit more used to it now – I wonder if perhaps Multi-Cat Formula might work better for her?
