Introducing Purr & Simple All Natural Cat Litter ENTER TO WIN!

Giveaways, Litter & Hygiene

I’m always excited to try a new non-clay cat litter, so I was intrigued when I found Purr & Simple. So far, I’ve tried litters made from corn, wood, wheat, soy, and paper, but Purr & Simple is completely different. It is made by Eco-Shell Inc, a company that specializes in creating Earth-friendly products using agricultural by-products. Purr & Simple is the first cat litter to use by-products from the tree nut industry, and they have discovered something awesome. Apparently, tree nut shells, including the inner membrane surrounding the nut, have incredible natural odor absorbing properties. I can tell you, I’ve tested this new litter and I am very impressed! Mother Nature may have solved our litter box odor problems!

I first encountered Purr & Simple last year at the Global Pet Expo. I met Gail and David from Eco-Shell in the Purr & Simple booth where they were using a sophisticated demonstration system to show just how good Purr & Simple is at eliminating odor. They had a special machine that pulls the air into a glass tube filled with crystals that change color according to the amount of odor (ammonia, I believe) in the air. They ran the test on each litter for me and the Purr & Simple results were so dramatically lower than ANY of the other litters, it certainly caught my attention. (Not to mention that Gail and David are also really nice!)

So they sent me some of the litter to test for myself and, I have to say, it exceeded my expectations. Purr & Simple comes in both pellets and a new clumping formula. I tested both and they both absorb odor equally well. The pellet formula, like most pellet litters, has very little dust and is easy to clean. The clumping formula clumps really well, forming nice solid clumps that are easy to scoop, plus the cats love the texture. Purr & Simple is a dark brown color, which hides the solids (and can also make it a little challenging to find the solids when scooping). The clumping formula looks like coffee grounds, with larger granules that don’t track as far as some of the lighter wood litters I’ve tried. The clumping litter does put off some dust, which is also a dark brown color and requires regular cleaning. Maybe you can think of this as a benefit, because it makes it pretty obvious when it’s time to clean the dust!

Purr & Simple is currently available at pet stores across the US and Canada. Check their store locator to find a store near you. If you can’t find a store near you, please contact Purr & Simple for more information.

Allergy Alert

You may be asking the question, “What about people with tree nut allergies?” The Purr & Simple website addresses this question and says that testing shows very low nut protein levels in the litter, however, they recommend that people with severe tree nut allergies do not use this product.


Five lucky winners are going to get to test Purr & Simple for themselves! Each winner will receive a 10 lb bag in their choice of either pellets or clumping litter. Please leave a comment on this post to enter. The winners will be chosen in a random drawing on March 14, 2011. One entry per person. This giveaway includes free shipping to addresses in the US and Canada. Canadian winners will need to pay applicable taxes and duties.

    This sounds like it is a great litter. And if it has great odor absorption properties, all the better! We have a few stinky kitties that certainly make their business known.

  2. 1002

    I have used Swheatscoop for years and our rescue group uses clumping Feline pine. I am always interested in a new earth friendly litter alternative. When doing adoptions I always encourage use of these kinds of litters.

    We have been using a wheat litter for a while bc clay litter is so unhealthy. to try this one too.

  4. 1004

    I would love to try this!

  5. 1005

    Would love to try this!

  6. 1006

    This sounds wonderful…I thought I had tried every litter out there but this is a new one for me. I would love to give it a try for my “fur children”. ;-)

    Very interesting…would love to see how the cats respond to it…

  8. 1008

    I would love to try this new litter! I am allergic to dust and have to wear a mask when I clean the boxes. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’m lucky enough to win a bag!

  9. 1009

    We currently use Feline Pine, and it doesn’t do anything for the odor that comes after our kitty does #2 ! Would love to try anything that would help with that !

  10. 1010

    Count me in!

  11. 1011

    My cats prefer clumping litter, so I’d love to try this. :)

  12. 1012

    I’ll all about nature——al!

    What a great new litter!My cat has FITD so I’m always trying new litters to find the best one to prevent urinary tract infections.

  14. 1014

    I sure hope I win because I’d love to try it but the “Store Locater” that said where I can buy it has had an epic FAIL. I tried 5 stores and none of them carried it even though Retailer Listed had said they do. Sad face form me and kitties.

    I’ve tried the corn and wheat ones, but they just don’t control odor at all. I would love to try this one!

  17. 1017

    This is certain to have Kazuri and me purrrrrrrrring with no cat odor!!!

    I’m definitely going to try to find Purr n Simple at Global Pet/Ryan here in Canada. One of my fosters seems to have sneezes and a runny eye and perhaps this is the reason – dust. They do like Fresh for Life but I’d like an easier one on their feet – one being a “Hemingway” cat really tosses the litter around. Would really like to try this new one.

  19. 1019

    This is such a Fantastic idea!

  20. 1020

    I am so excited about this product! I’ve been using clay-based litter only because it’s clumping and eliminates odors really well. It sounds like this product does the same, except it’s eco-friendly! I’ve been looking to switch to something that’s better for both cats and the environment and this one surely sounds like a winner. Pick me!

  21. 1021

    I want to stop using clay litter, this one looks good to try!

  22. 1022

    the clumping version would be great to try.
    even if i don’t win, i should really give this stuff a chance.

  23. 1023

    I’d love for my cats to try this out. They were using Swheat Scoop clumping but I found the quality to be inconsistent. Now they use Feline Pine non-clumping, and I’m happy with it – and I find that a bag of it lasts a while, since you don’t have to put a lot of it in the litter box.

  24. 1024

    I would love to let my cats try this out. Just recently increased our kitty number to five!

  25. 1025

    This is definitely something my cats and I really want to try. The litter we use is pretty good at odor absorption but the tracking of it all over the house is more than enough! if this stops tracking, fantastic!

    Controlling odor is definitely a problem within our rescue/foster homes. Even the best clay litters that say they control ammonia smell leave a bit to be desired. It certainly would be interesting to see if this product does what it says. I would post a link on our website, and tell the world about it.

    I wish they sold Purr & Simple in Ohio! I love World’s Best Cat Litter but even though I regularly trim the hair on my cat’s paws I find the corn littler all over the house. Plus the fact that Purr & Simple is Eco friendly as it is a by-product of the food industry is just an added bonus to future generations.

  28. 1028

    Always great to try something new especially something natural!!

  29. 1029

    would love to try it even though that tiny little bag would last about a day at our house.

    I need some new litter to try. I’ve been worrying about the safety of my current clumping litter. Thanks for this opportunity!

    I can’t wait to try this!!!

  32. 1032

    I think that it is awesome that companies such as these recognize that our animals are very important and that we only want the best. I would love to try.

  33. 1033

    I have tried out so many other natural litters and want to try this!

  34. 1034

    Always interested to try a new litter.

  35. 1035

    Intresting idea! Would love to try.

  36. 1036

    Nice! I’d love to try it.

  37. 1037

    This looks incredible and incredibly green. Looking forward to trying it! Thanks!!

    I love the idea of a bio waste product litter. I’ve stopped using clay, and would love to try this with my crew.

    This looks like my answer.

    We live in a very small space with 2 cats. We have to have the litter box in the living room and and as a result there is a fine coating of litter dust from the clay litter we use. I would love to get a chance to try out a new litter but money is tight so I can’t be buying something to find the cats won’t use it. This would be awesome to be able to try it for free!!

    Tammy Gillespie

    My cats would love to check this litter out!

  42. 1042

    sounds interesting… I might try the clumping type

  43. 1043

    I would love to try out this litter on my six cats–I do not use clay litter and would like to see if this beats my corn litter.

  44. 1044

    My cat won’t use most Earth-friendly litters. I’d like to try this one!

  45. 1045

    We’d love to give the clumping variety a try.

  46. 1046

    I recently switched from World’s Best (trying to get away from GMO products) to Green Tea Leaves kitty litter which works well and smells good too. But I’m always on the lookout for the “perfect” natural litter. Would love to try the clumping version!

    I’d love to try it….I’ve tried just about every other litter out there in an effort to cut down on dust, tracking (even particles in my bed!) and have it be a healthier alternative not only for my fur babies, but myself and the environment.

    This looks amazing. I tried a lot of natural litter, but my cats don’t like them as much as I do. It would be nice to make them re-adjust their habits.

  49. 1049

    I’d like to try this!

    I am always up for trying a new non-clay litter. I use World’s Best Litter and actually really like it but the dust tracks on my rugs and furniture. I use a ton of litter monthly as we have 2 family kitties and also foster cats and kittens. I believe that we’ve tried most of the litters in the market.
