Killing the Cat (Smell) and Giveaway! #FreshStepExtreme

Why Pregnant Women Can’t Scoop Kitty Litter

Pregnancy has it’s perks. One of them: I can’t scoop the kitty litter! Super simplified: Cats are the most common carriers of a parasite that causes Toxoplasmosis, which makes prego mama feel like she has the flu, but can cause miscarriage or damage to baby’s eyes, brain or more. The parasite lives in the cats intestines, so scooping the litter exposes mom to poop and possibly the parasite. Good news: if mom was exposed before becoming pregnant, she’s probably already immune. And it’s not really very common, but better safe than sorry, stay away from kitty poop and puke.

Let the Man Scoop the Litter

Down side: this means Peter has to scoop the kitty litter. Since he’s not used to be assigned this job, he doesn’t do it as often as I would. Which means the little cat-cave-pantry can get stinky fast. And my sense of smell has jumped in sensitivity with being pregnant too!

The Fix: Fresh Step Extreme

Fresh Step (a great kitty litter to start with) has put a new product on the market: Fresh Step Extreme Odor Control Scoopable Litter. With CarbonPLUS technology, it removes 35% more urine and fecal odors *vs untreated clay. I’m always impressed by Fresh Step kitty litters, and Fresh Step Extreme is another great odor-control poop-stink-killing litter.

Antimicrobial agents in Fresh Step Extreme also help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria! And, of course, it scoops, which makes clean up way easier. It is scented and has a little men’s-cologne smell, but that’s way better than kitty poop.
