News and Information about Dogs, Cats, and Pet Products

My name is Mary Ann and I’m a Team Member/lifelong cat parent at Two Bostons! About two years ago, I moved out into an apartment for the first time and shortly after, I rescued my very own cat. Her name is Clarice¬†and she is a spoiled princess. But here’s the thing…even princesses poop. And my princess poops a lot.¬† By no means am I saying that was a surprise, but the only place her litter box can fit in my apartment is about three feet away from my bed so it’s less than ideal. I’ll spare you the smelly details.

Before working at Two Bostons I was using the same “big box” brand of litter I’d always used with my prior cats, and frankly, it was the worst. I felt like I was constantly choking on litter dust, and every time Clarice used her box my entire place stunk for a good fifteen minutes. Naturally she also tracked it everywhere, including my bed, because for some reason she just loves to snuggle after a good poop.

Then I tried Boxiecat and my life was changed forever.

Obviously I was skeptical after 20+ years of using the other stuff. It just sounded too good to be true. Easy to scoop, non-tracking, and minimal smell? There was no way, but I still figured it was worth a shot. I opted to go for BoxiePro which has all the aforementioned benefits plus probiotics to make it self-cleaning. That part was extra important to me because of the close proximity to my bed. So I grabbed a bag and hoped for the best.

One of the initial things I noticed was that there was virtually no dust. With the other brand it felt like ages for my room to not smell like litter after changing it, but with Boxiecat I could actually breathe! To any readers and/or cats out there who have any sort of breathing issues like asthma, allergies, or even a general sensitivity to dust, I HIGHLY suggest checking out Boxiecat for this reason alone! You really don’t realize how much dust your litter has until you use something without any.

The tracking was also reduced substantially. On top of Clarice’s box being in my room, my apartment is also completely carpeted, so I went the whole nine yards to do what I could to prevent tracking (covered box with high walls, a mat to catch the litter as she left, etc.), but there was still always litter everywhere. Now there is almost none. I think it’d be impossible to eliminate tracking entirely, but Boxiecat has made it pretty minimal. I also have more peace of mind knowing there are anti-bacterial properties so it feels a little less disgusting to roll over in the morning and find a litter grain stuck to my cheek (I said a little).

Boxiecat is also saving me money. With the other brand, I was going through about 20+ lbs a month. I got to the point where I was scooping multiple times a day which contaminated the unused portions of the litter because the clumps would break apart which meant things got smellier faster which meant I was changing it bi-weekly. Sometimes even weekly! With Boxiecat, the clay they use is ultra absorbent, so it creates what they call “flat top clumps”. Essentially the quick absorption catches the liquid upon contact, rather than letting it seep down to the bottom of the box. It’s easier to scoop and doesn’t fall apart! I’m back to only scooping once daily, plus I only have to completely swap litter once a month*.

Now let’s talk about odor control because that’s arguably the most important thing.

It works! There is still a little odor, but like litter tracking, I don’t think it’s possible to 100% eliminate everything. I like that it neutralizes the odor, rather than just covering up the scent with a different scent. When Clarice uses her box there’s not even a 5 minute window where I’m plugging my nose, then afterwards it’s as if I didn’t even have a cat as a roommate!

So is Boxiecat worth it? Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes three thousand times YES! I cannot get over how big of a difference this product has made. My entire place just feels so much cleaner, and now when I have guests over, my anxieties of having them walk into a stinky apartment are gone! I truly can’t recommend this product enough.

We currently carry four varieties of Boxiecat litter so you can find what’s perfect for your unique feline family! Grab some in our stores or order it online!
