Maizy Cat Litter*

You’ve probably seen the post title and are thinking ‘What on earth is she talking about cat litter for?!’ Well, let me tell you! It’s not really the usual topic for my blog, but when Pets Corner contacted me and asked if I’d like to feature a new cat litter on my blog, I must say I was intrigued. I would call myself a lifestyle blogger, and a big part of my life revolves around my gorgeous kitty cats, Jaffa and Xena. Being house cats, they obviously spend their time indoors, which means their litter trays are pretty important! I therefore thought that a new cat litter would be a good thing for me to try. Plus I know a lot of you have cats as pets, so I hope this might be a useful post for you too!

This litter is called Maizy because it’s made from 100% Natural Puffed Sweetcorn. As it is so natural, it actually means that rather than having to throw it in the bin once it’s been used, you can actually just flush it away! Imagine all the bin space you will save and how great it is for the environment.

The granules are referred to as little sponges and are meant to be extra absorbent, which is always good for house cats as the last thing you want is smelly cat litter. I can definitely vouch for this – it does seem to clump together quickly and absorb any nasty odours. The only slight complaint we had was that, because the granules are so fine they do tend to fly all over the place when the cat starts digging. But apart from that we had no complaints about this.

We filled up our litter trays to the 6cm they recommend on the packet and let Jaffa and Xena test it out for a couple of weeks. They seemed to take to the new litter straight away, which is always a good thing, especially considering how fussy Jaffa is when it comes to pretty much everything. He’s definitely an old cat set in his ways – he likes routine and doesn’t cope well with change so I was a little worried he might not like a change in litter. It obviously shows how great this litter is then, that he took to it straight away without any problems. He’s very much enjoyed digging in it, even when he didn’t need to use it!

As I said, cat litter isn’t my usual topic of conversation for my blog, but with my cats being such a big part of my life (I mean, even my blog is named after Jaffa!) I thought it would be a very fitting post. I would definitely recommend trying this litter out if you have a litter tray for your cats. My favourite part is the fact that it’s biodegradable – I’m all for saving the environment, but it also makes it so much easier when you can simply flush it away!

Price wise it is also really reasonable, at £9.99 for 12 Litres and £17.99 for 24 Litres. It is definitely going to last us a fair while, so you won’t have to ne buying it too often, especially if you only have the one cat. Pets Corner sells pretty much everything you could possibly need. Whether you’ve got a cat, dog, bird, guinea pig or if you just like to look after the wildlife in your back garden – there really is something for everyone. They offer free 24-hour delivery for orders over £45 (which I can imagine is pretty easy to spend because they sell so many useful products!) or you can click and collect in a store near you.

I hope this post has been of some interest to you and if you don’t have a cat, I’d still recommend checking out the website for any other pets you may have!

Do you have a cat that uses a litter tray? Will you be trying out this Maizy cat litter or have you found the perfect one already?
