|Truffle and WeRuVa It's a Tea Potty! Natural Cat Litter|
Last Winter, we received a bag of WeRuVa® It's a Tea Potty! Cat Litter to review. We'd just experienced a disaster with Truffle not liking a change in the litter once Mom Paula stopped mixing it with the previous litter, so we were a little hesitant about trying a new litter. Mom Paula put the litter in a separate litter box and gave us all the time we needed to see if we'd use it. It took about 6 weeks for Brulee to start using it and we were able to post a positive review in March 2016. Mom Paula loved the litter because it was extremely light-weight, controlled odors, and maintained the pleasant smell the entire month Brulee used the litter. Brulee slowly began using this litter as her preference. We couldn't say the same about Truffle at the time.

All of this changed sometime this past summer. Before Mom Paula knew it, Truffle was using the litter box with the WeRuVa It's A Tea Potty! Cat Litter. Mom Paula was very pleased because now both of us were using a natural litter with incredible odor control that is free of chemicals and perfumes. This litter is made from Hinoki Wood and Green Tea, which is unusual for cat litter. The Hinoki Wood (Japanese Cypress) has been used in Japan for construction of temples, shrines, and hot tubs due to its resistance to humidity. This resistance to humidity naturally suppresses the growth of mold and bacteria, which helps with odor control. The green tea contains catechins, which are compounds with antioxidant properties which help to suppress the growth of bacteria and odor. Plus, it smells great! The litter is earth friendly and flushable and compostable (outside California). The WeRuVa It's a Tea Potty! Cat litter is sustainable because of the use of salvaged by-products from other industries such and piano and construction industries. WeRuVa plants a new tree for every tree that is used in the making of their cat litter.

Mom Paula continues to be amazed because she cannot detect odors from the litter box with the WeRuVa Cat Litter. The litter is refreshing, but not overpowering. The litter is a different texture from traditional litter and you may need to get a scoop with a larger openings to sift effectively. You'll also need to put a large litter mat outside of the litter box if you have a cat with longer fur because this litter tends to cling a little and will track outside the box. This isn't a problem because it's easy to vacuum. We're happy to report that everyone in the house is pleased with WeRuVa It's A Tea Potty! Cat Litter now. Mom Paula still keeps different litters in other boxes to allow us our preference for whatever mood we're in, but we're using the WeRuVa more and more.
