It’s mid-February in northern Michigan, and if you live in a similar climate, you know that this particular time of the year is both frustrating (will winter ever get over?!) and hopeful (we can see spring just around the corner! Really, we can! <nervous laughter>).
So when we got the opportunity to do a sponsored post for Cat’s Pride® Fresh & Light® Ultimate Care™ litter and tell you about our cat, Todd, we thought, “Ok, that sounds like a fun little distraction from winter!” What we didn’t realize is that as part of the Cat’s Pride campaign, we would be required to put a tiny cat-sized lab coat on Todd. Yes, a lab coat. On a cat. Named Todd. Who’s a girl, by the way.
A little about Todd… she came into our life shortly after my dad died, so I guess you could say she was a gift from heaven. Even if the idea of my dad sending a cat to comfort us is somewhat of a preposterous idea. You never know. It could happen. He was more of a “cow person,” having grown up and raised us on a farm, but sending a cow to comfort us is just silly.
Anyway, Todd started coming up to the porch and we started feeding her and before you know it, she was part of the family. We named her Todd before we realized she was a girl, and the name stuck. Hey, if it’s good enough for Mary Todd Lincoln, it’s good enough for our cat.
In the summer, Todd spends most of her time outdoors hanging around the yard, lounging in a chair on the porch and just being a cat in general. In the winter, however, Todd spends most of her time either under the bed or snuggled up next to the heat register. She rarely comes out for any reason, except to eat and use the litter box.
Even though she’s a cat’s cat, we still love her and were thrilled to check out Fresh & Light Ultimate Care litter.
If you’re a cat owner, you know that cleaning the litter box is probably the least favorite part of being owned by a cat, and Ultimate Care has a lot going for it — it’s lightweight, 99.9 percent dust-free, uses a high-absorbing clay that absorbs and eliminates odors, and comes in two formulas – Scented and Unscented Hypoallergenic – which is great for cats who are sensitive or have allergies.
As mentioned, however, we didn’t realize that the sponsored post would also include a video of us attempting to put a tiny lab coat on Todd. See the happy, smiling cat in the lab coat on the box in the photo above? That is not Todd. But we love a challenge and will do just about anything to distract ourselves from winter in February.
Oh, and that cat on the box holding a jug of cat litter? That’s not Todd either, because she never does anything and thus has no muscle tone whatsoever. So here’s my challenge for you — Take the 10-Day Odor Challenge and see for yourself what makes Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light Ultimate Care litter better than other litters you’ve tried. I think you’ll really see a big change and both you and your cat will love it.
Also, we’re giving away a $100 Visa Gift Card, and to enter for a chance to win all you have to do is tell me in the comments below: What’s the most important quality for you and your cat when it comes to choosing litter?
Good luck! Check out the video above and see how things went when we tried to put the lab coat on Todd. She wasn’t impressed.
