The Worst Day Possible for Cat Litter Delivery #ChewyInfluencer

Meows from Mudpie!

Last week I told you that this month I got to try out a couple different things as a Chewy Influencer. The first was some yummy food I'm enjoying, and the second was, well, a product kitties need when your food comes out the other end. I'm trying to be ladylike, but of course I'm talking about kitty litter!


Did you know that Chewy.com has their own exclusive line of pet products that goes by the name Frisco? The Frisco line features all kinds of stuff like pet beds, dog crates, amazing cat trees, leashes, potty pads, and litter!

We've been hearing a lot of good things about their litter so I was excited to try it out, but as the title of my blog post today states, it arrived at our door on the worst possible day! Do you remember the arctic blast that the northeast was hit by earlier this month? The FedEx man delivered my Frisco litter on a Saturday afternoon when the actual air temperature was around -20 degrees, and the wind chill was -40. Not only that - there was snow and ice on the ground, and Mommy had to haul the 40+ pound box all the way up our loooooong driveway into the garage! Why, to hear her tell the story you would think it was your grandparents telling you about the days they had to walk for miles in the snow uphill both ways to school each day!


Anyways, back to the litter! We received a 40 pound bag of the Frisco Scented Multi-Cat Clumping Cat Litter. Because of my asthma we're hesitant to use scented litter (even though it's never bothered me) but we're happy to say that the scent is very light and fresh, and it's really quite minimal. We've been using it for a couple weeks now and have been very pleased with it's performance. I started using it right away with no issues, it clumps really well, and so far there's no noticeable dust or tracking. In short, it's a product that delivers on it's promises, and I would expect no less from our good friends at Chewy! Really our only complaint would be the packaging. 40 pounds is very, very heavy in a plastic bag. Ours arrived with some tiny holes in it that we had to cover up with packing tape to contain the spillage (which is why we're mainly using Chewy photos in our post).


I almost forgot to mention the best part - the incredible price! It's currently $12.19 (with an additional 5% off if you add it to your autoship order), but as a trial offer your very first bag will be only $5.99! (Limit one per customer, discount applied at checkout.) This offer works on both the Frisco scented and unscented litter (which also comes in 20 pound bags) so you can choose whichever you prefer.

Chewy offers FREE 1-2 day shipping for orders over $49, and with over 500 brands in stock they have something sure to make every cat or dog happy. Tell them Mudpie sent you!

Forty lbs. is way too heavy for my human - she stops at 12 lb. bags of litter, and will pay more to not have to lug around anything heavier.

Roby Sweet said...

That sounds like a great product, but I agree that 40 lbs is a bit much--especially when you have to carry it up the drive in ice and snow and -40 degree weather! Twenty pounds sounds more doable though. :)

The Island Cats said...

The mom never orders litter because she feels bad making the FedEx guy carry all that heavy stuff. She says our food box is pretty heavy as it is. We'll have to check out this litter. We didn't know Chewy had its own line of products.

Sounds like a good deal, Mudpie, but I couldn’t handle a 40 lb. bag. I hope Mommy didn’t use “potty” language getting your bag in! :)

This sounds like a good litter.

Bionic Basil said...

Sounds like great litter, we buy in 10L bags here or 20 kg sacks as we use a lot! MOL

The Menagerie Mom said...

This sounds like a great product, and for a great price! We use Frisco poo bags for pup Astrid. We can get 900 bags for an insanely low price. But we digress. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Frisco litter with us, Mudpie!

Rosa Silva said...

This sounds like a great option

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

40 pounds in a plastic bag?!? UGH. We've never heard of this kind of litter - but it sounds promising. All the litters we've tried with decent clumping track horribly. And 5.99 for the first bag is an amazing deal!

The Swiss Cats said...

That sounds like a good litter. Purrs

Mama needs to get one of those lightweight plastic sleds (if the stores don't already have all the beach toys out already). I bought a toboggan sized one several years ago and can haul all the groceries up to the house at once,so it would work for the litter - except she'd still have to lug it into the house. The plastic sleds even slide over wet grass in warmer weather.

we are glad to see your review and hear good things. mom has decided to try to get this brand shipped and it is on our order for this weekend

Cathy Keisha said...

TW and I are quite satisfied with the unscented. In fact, it's in my box right now. Great review and perhaps we'll try the scented the next time we order.

Eastside Cats said...

Da Boyz kick so much litter outta the pans, that something that isn't dusty just might be the purrfect thing to switch too! I'm going to take them up on that first-time order discount! Thanks for the review!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Yeah, I feel sorry for the Fedex guy when he has to deliver our litter! This sounds like a good one!
