The Standoff Is Over!

Dateline: The Condo. After an almost six-month standoff, the peeps have finally rid the second litter box of that horrid World's "Best" (aka Worst) Cat Litter so I can once again pee and poo in it. No longer will I have to hop on 2 paws into the hallway litter box when I'm on Pop's bed and the urge to pee strikes me.

In our 1000+ foot condo, I have 2 litter boxes. One is in the hallway and the other in Pop's bathroom, for my convenience or so they say. A couple of years ago, Pop had bought a package of the World's "Best" Cat Litter. It was little kernels of corn and I happily used it. TW brought home a couple of free coupons from Blogpaws last year so they bought it again. Being senile, they didn't remember which color package they had bought so they picked up the green one. Of course, they "claim" that Pathmark didn't have the other one, but we know the truth.

This formula was terrible—all dusty and smelling like peanuts or something. Where were the kernels of corn, I wondered? Did I mention that it did nothing to mask any odors emanating from the box? I'm not trying to say my poo smells because it doesn't, but the peeps needed a gas mask to get into Pop's bathroom and they were blaming me! I tried to use it for awhile but then when TW dumped in the second bag, I went on strike. I refused to use that litter box. I'm sure this thrilled TW since it meant she only had to clean one box rather than two and she didn't have to get that smelly dust into her lungs. The box sat there, unused and untouched for a l-o-n-g time. Months, I'd say. The standoff continued as neither side gave in. Who'd blink first: The Stunning Cat or the lazy humans?

I don't recommend the Double Duty Arm & Hammer cos it gave TW an asthma attack every time she cleaned it!
I can now report that the standoff is over and The Cat has prevailed. The box has been cleaned, deodorized and filled with good old America's Choice clumping litter. No more dust all over Pop's bathroom. No more dust in CK's eyes. I'm happy to report I've used the box twice since yesterday. I'm now a happy cat again. I've called the strike off.

Don't believe 'em when they claim to be the World's "Best" Cat Litter cos "Best" is in the eyes (or nose) of the beholder. This beholder gives it two paws down.

This is NOT a review. It's intended as a humorous piece about my experience with the products.

  1. I'm with you CK! I particularly like Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract litter when I do decide to use the box and not the carpet or wee-wee pads.

    I'm glad TW came to her senses.

    XOXOX, Fluffbomb

  10. I will poop and have pooped in just about anything the girl manages to pour into my box. I'm so flexible, good natured and obedient, you know.

    It was actually the GIRL who gave World's Best the big thumbs down. It tracked SO bad, we had a racetrack of litter dust in the carpeting that took months to get rid of.

    I'm an Arm & Hammer kitty, with an occasional splash of Fresh Step.

    And no, my poop doesn't stink. ; )

  11. I'm with Brian...I'm a "World's Best" kitty ALL THE WAY! Maybe you have some particularly pungent poop?

  12. I love Precious Cat litter. I use R&R *Respitory Relief* so mom and I don't have to deal with that horrible cloud of dust just LOOKING at the other litters.

  13. I will actually use anything except for that awful crystal junk - ick, do you know how bad that stuff feels on your paws? I actually like World's Best - my human brings home the lavender scented. We tried the Blue Buffalo, thanks to Mr. Chewy, and it definitely tracks less and there's no dust, but because of its dark brown color, it's harder to see if there are, um, "issues" going on, so we are probably going to stick with the old stuff.

    Yeah, it IS funny that your Monday post and mine are litter box stories. Maybe we both need more excitement in our lives!

  14. Me, I'm an Arm & Hammer man, Double Duty's the best! It's a MANLY litter a ManCat can be proud to poop in.

    If my Human were a better Catholic she wouldn't have squirted coffee out her nose at your comment today.

  16. CK, we didn't like the World's Best either. Here on the island, the Island Best is Dr. Elsy's Precious Cat.

  17. We're World's Best kittehs over here (the humans like that it's flushable, and Faraday abso-freakin-lutely REFUSES to use those ginormous nuggets called feline pine & etc)!

  18. I think I must take after your Autumn. I can eats whole mouffulls of the kitty grass and not frow up at all. The Human thinks I might be part guinea pig or sumfing.

  19. Four paws up! How dare them hoomans disrespect you like this!

  20. Doesn''t matter what litter mom uses cos she can't SMELL! HAH!

  21. We've tried crystals (our favorite), Fresh Step Unscented (will use, but prefer crystals), and The World's Best Litter. Not one of the three of us like the World's Best Litter. We filled three litter boxes with the different litters and since the crystals got the most use, they won. The corn litter didn't get used at all!
