Green Little Cat


Mint Ice Cream Cat Litter

PpodI recently visited the Humane Society of Silicon Valley and was told about an eco-friendly cat litter that smells like ice cream. I had to see (smell) this for myself so HSSV’s Director of Customer Service was kind enough to lead me the their pet store and held up a bag for me to sniff.

Normally, I wouldn’t get up close to a bag of cat litter, but I had to smell this ice cream cat litter for myself. I bent down, took a tentative sniff and the litter did indeed smell like a mint ice cream cone.

The Director of Customer Service said that she tried using this litter at home, but stopped when her cat wanted to eat it. I had a similar experience with Swheat Scoop, where Furball wasn’t sure whether to eat the litter or pee in it. But then again, my cat will eat anything and inhales every last crumb of food.

If your cat is the normal type when it comes to food, you may want to consider Healthy Pet P-POD litter. It’s reportedly excellent for odour control and also clumps well.

P-POD is made from reclaimed cellulose fiber and is processed to remove potentially harmful aromatic hydrocarbons that exist in pine and cedar oils. It’s made by International Absorbents Inc.

I haven’t done any investigating into this company, so I’m not sure if they’re fake green or real green, but their website says that they are “engaged in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of proprietary, cost-effective absorbent products derived from waste wood fiber (cellulose), a by-product of the pulp and paper manufacturing process.” Apparently, they started making pet bedding for small rodents and moved into cat litter from there.

This is also claimed in research. According to doctors, Valium can be used as an anesthetic drug. In the case of combination such as medicine with other drugs, as a result, it enhances the effects.

Green Presentation at Humane Society

This is pretty cool.  I met with a couple of people at the Humane Society of Silicon Valley and we’re going to be working together in the future.  The plan is for me to give presentations on how to green your cat as part of their educational program. And, they’re interested in carrying my cat toy book ( in their store.

While I was there, they also told me about this new cat litter that’s eco-friendly and smells like ICE CREAM!  I did indeed see and smell the litter.  I’ll write more about it in an upcoming post.
