Moving Closer To Nature With Feline Pine



To be honest, before I tried Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter I never really put tremendous thought into what kind of cat litter that my cats used. As long as they used it, and as long as they were happy with it, I figured everything was right in the world. Boy was I wrong! My cats Sam and Sara recently had the opportunity to try out Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter and wow, what a huge improvement from the clay cat litter Sam and Sara had been using for years.
First off, you all know me as an Earth-friendly recycler. After all, it's what I do for a living! And whenever we can, our family uses products that are healthy, natural, earth-friendly or recycled. We just try to use products that are overall environmentally conscious. So if there is a choice between two products we will try to always choose the earth-friendly option whenever possible. Who wouldn't? 


Of course this means choosing chemical-free products whenever possible as well. Nowadays there are so many harmful chemicals in so many of the products that we use that it is actually kind of frightening to think about. If there's a choice to be made between a product that contains added chemicals and one that is 100% chemical-free, I will of course choose the chemical-free product. 


When I found out that Feline Pine™ Cat Litter was not only 100% chemical free but was also tree-friendly (Yay! No new trees are cut to make Feline Pine™ products). The litter is made from kiln-dried shavings reclaimed from lumber production, that’s when I knew it was right for our home.  And the cost for Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter was the same as the previous clay litter we were using, so that was not an issue.

How did it work? Well I think you'll all agree that there's nothing worse than a smelly litter box! Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter worked great to eliminate the litter box odors. What impressed me most was that there were no harsh chemicals, additives or synthetic perfumes in Feline Pine™ Cat Litter, so there wasn't any nasty chemical perfume or chemical smell either. When I discovered that the odor-fighting power comes purely from 100% natural pine, I was impressed. How does it work to combat litter box odors? The pine shavings are highly absorbent and bind directly to ammonia odors and lock them away for good. The pine smell really works, and I like that pine is a natural scent that comes from nature. 
Another thing I really loved about Feline Pine™ Cat Litter was that Feline Pine™ Cat Litter leaves no messy cloud of dust when I change the litter. There's nothing worse than that clay cat litter dust cloud! We have allergies in our house, so not having to deal with the clay dust cloud was an added plus. 
What did Sam and Sara think about Feline Pine™? I think they really liked it. I noticed that there was no smell on their fur, or litter stuck in their fur, which was another nice change. I like to walk around inside my house with bare feet. There's nothing worse than stepping on tiny pieces of clay cat litter that get tracked around the house from getting caught in my cat’s fur and paws! Feline Pine™ Cat Litter was a lot less messy then the clay litters for sure.
Using 100% natural cat litter is so important! If I can do something for my family and my pets I will certainly make that choice. You definitely should try Feline Pine™ Original Non-Clumping Cat Litter

  14. I used to use Feline Pine till I discovered pine pellets horse bedding at Tractor Supply. 40 pounds for 6 bucks. Or watch for sales. With 6 cats and 6 litter boxes, I need something that absorbs odors and is inexpensive, this works great.
    I sift the poopies out and the peed up pine bedding breaks down and recycles, (outside next to our compost pile) no adding to landfills.
    And I make my own cat food, have for 20 years.
    How's that?

  30. We don't necessarily purchase natural products for our cats. I think the catnip is organic, but I'm not sure. We use what our vet has approved for food. One cat is on a weight reducing diet food, too. We use Tidy Cats Multicat clumping litter. I don't scoop the litter in our house {bless my wife who does!}. So, no...for the most part, we aren't using "natural" products for our pets. I do wonder how Feline Pine would work, but this is something I will have to ask my wife about. Thank you for the opportunity to win! rush88888 at gmail dot com

  31. When I was younger, I didn't really grasp the point in using anything other than conventionally manufactured food/supplies for my cats. After slowly but surely recognizing the health impact of those products upon my feline family members, I finally had an AH HAAA moment and committed to buying 100% natural alternatives. Now, I'm just one week away from adopting a two middle-aged cats and will be vigilant in exclusively exposing them to a high-protein/no grain diet and natural cat litter. I am convinced that it will help them to live healthier and longer lives :)

  32. I don't use natural products for our pets. They seem to be a bit more expensive and don't really work with our budget. But, I'm sure they are great products.
