You might remember the episode we did on cat litter that ended with me saying I hadn't found the perfect one yet. After that, I set out to test a bunch of different litters for their clumping ability, odor control, dust factor, renewable source, biodegradability, and cat preference. In that process, I found IT - truly the best litter I could hope for. Join me in this podcast as we talk about why Smart Cat grass rules.
