  • Easier to lift, carry and pour!
  • Available nationally September 2014.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen the package arrived Oliver was THRILLED that they included a feather wand toy.  When we first found him outside as a stray, he was chasing all the birds at our bird feeder.  To give him the same sense of “hunting” now that he is an “indoor only” cat, we often buy feather toys, or toys that sing ling birds.  This feather toy had a little weight attached to the feather which made it react a little different than other feather toys and Oliver seemed to love it!Oliver Playing with Feather

Sometimes I will come into the room and find him playing with it all by himself – he just drags it around and swats at the feather!  The other cats enjoy playing with it too, but if he sees them playing with it, he takes over because he is faster.

Back to the litter! It is noticeably lighter which is a great thing, especially if you keep your litter boxes in the basement like me.  Lugging full containers of regular litter down stairs can be heavy!  When I poured the litter into a clean box, it was dusty but, not any more so than other brand litters we have tried.  I think “lightweight” litters can be a little dustier sometimes just because they are lighter, and the particles move around a little easier. Fresh Step actually addresses dust in their FAQ section of their website:

The litter I purchased seems dusty. Is it okay to use?

While we take a number of precautions to minimize dust in our cat litter products, once the product leaves our warehouses we cannot control the handling or storage methods used by others. Rough handling could further break up the clay particles and contribute to dust problems. Some packages may seem dustier than others. Both are fine to use.  (https://www.freshstep.com/cat-litter/faq/litter/)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The box I received was scented and when I first poured it in, it was very strong but the cats haven’t seemed to mind. As the days went out the scent faded a little, and now I only notice it when I am scooping up the litter. What is worth mentioning is that I didn’t smell the dirty litter.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jewel has been having some issues lately which you might have seen us posting about on our facebook. She has lost over a pound in the last year and is always hungry so we have been trying different brands of senior wet food to see what works best. Her blood work and kidney function tests are thankfully “normal”. While we were trying different foods, Jewel who normally had no digestive issues with new foods, began having some loose stools. She never missed the litter box, but would refuse to cover her mess. We (including the other cats) would just go cover it with some litter for her and it would trap in the odor. After it hardened we would scoop it like normal. This litter has done a great job at eliminating both urine AND feces odor!

Fresh Step Extreme Lightweight Litter will be available nationwide this September, so be on the look out for it! If you try it, let us know your thoughts!

    I’ll be looking for this when it comes out! I have seen the other brands light litter and it’s more expensive than the regular. I hope they don’t do that with Fresh Step. I’d rather just lift heavy litter than pay $4 more lol.

    Fresh Step is a great cat litter for my cats, we use it all the time and the litter box does not stink, I have not used the lighter one yet, but when this batch is gone it will be on my list, thank you for sharing the review and I love how your cat is fast and takes the feather toys away from your other cats..

    I’d love to try this new litter. I would like to try anything that works well on odors and is easier to carry and pour.

    I’ve always loved Fresh Step cat litter and am thrilled that they now have a lighter weight product. I was able to handle heavy jugs and boxes of litter when I was younger but realize that not only me, but a fast number of other people, will be able to handle transporting this litter more easily. I really like that not only does it get rid of odors, but actually kills the bacteria that causes those odors. We have three cats and five dogs, so anything that helps keep pet odors down is great in my opinion.

    I would really like to try this cat litter for my two cats, Fred and Ginger: Both of my cats are age 9 and I usually use the unscented cat litter. Does this come in unscented?

    This would be excellent for our cat, Nienna. She is 9 and even with just one kitty, we go through tons of boxes of litter every year.

    I do like the idea that it is lighter but does it work the same. I love Fresh Step. I like the clumping and the smells are ok enjoy to take. Some other litters are knock you out and you can smell it on your cat.

    We use Fresh Step all the time. It has a pleasant odor & less mess. I’m even in the PAW POINTS Reward program. A lot of litter is heavy. It’ll be great for a “lightweight” litter! Bring it on!

    This litter sounds great! I’m all for a lighter litter, especially one that is scented to help hide the bad smells.

    I would love to win this litter to give to my mom. She has a cat that she loves, and she does as much as she can for me so I would love to give back to her.

    I have never tried this brand before but I always catch myself looking at it. I will have to try it now that they have a lightweight competitor to Tidy Cat (for some off reason my cats wont use tidy cat…..picky creatures)

    I have a cat named Oliver as well. He is our outdoor cat that use to be a stray. We have two indoor cats as well. The litter we use can get dusty at times. I really do not like changing the litter box because of this. I don’t think my cat likes it either. He uses the litter box fine but he holds his urine for days until it builds up and then makes a huge puddling mess in the litter box. He also does not cover he bowel movements. I hope your cat gets to feeling better.

    This was a very helpful review. I will certainly go try this for my TinkerBelle. I think she and I will be very happy with it.

    I like that this is easier to lift and pour. We have had the best luck with Fresh Step so I only use other litters if I absolutely have to!

    I like the idea that this litter is about 30% lighter weight than other litters, but it contains stronger odor control. I would love to have my cats try this litter.

    I get my litter (scoop away) from costco b/c it is so much cheaper and does an awesome job. I may have to try this.

    I’d like to add that I also got a litterbox which has antimicrobial agents embedded into the litter box. This has also helped to keep the litter very low smell. My biggest problem is that Scooter (like your Jewel) is quite proud of the poops and doesn’t like to cover them. Other than that, it’s very low smelling.

    I live in a very rural area and we have a store called ALCO..no Walmart and we are far behind in the new product lines and I have yet to be able to find this litter! I really want to try this product.
