New Reason Eco-friendly Cats Love Trees On Earth Day

New Reason Eco-friendly Cats Love Trees On Earth Day by feline editor and cat litter expert Odin Wilde.

It’s Odin here taking over the blog for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day one of my favorite holidays. More than ever, our planet needs you, humans, to step up and make a difference. I have one easy way you can by changing to a new, earth-friendly cat litter.

To celebrate, we’re also sharing exclusive feline Earth Day photo quotes to share to Pinterest or your favorite social media. 

We’re big tree huggers, climbers and all-around lovers of trees. Always have been. That includes my cat mom Layla and ancestors. Hello, I could teach them a few things about trees but they have taught me all about wisdom.

Today, I have a new reason to love trees. I’m in love with a new cat litter called Catalyst Cat Litter and it’s made from up-cycled trees in a revolutionary new way. It’s unlike any litter you’ve ever tried.

It has everything good going for it. I should know since I have the privilege of being an indoor-outdoor cat. I’ve tried every cat litter under the sun and nothing beats the bliss of doing your business outdoors. Naturally eco-friendly Catalyst Cat Litter is the next best thing.

Truth be told, I’m not fussy about litter but oh, the horror stories I could tell you. All litters are NOT created equal. Ew, fake scents and back-breaking heavy litter. My poor, diabetic brother Clyde peed a lot and clay bits would harden like cement in between his toes. Gross!

But worse: Did you know clay litter is NOT biodegradable and 5 billion pounds are strip-mined every year? Much of it ends back in land fill to stay forever.

What do I most like about Catalyst Cat Litter?

  • 100% sustainable.
  • Looks, feels, smells natural so it’s naturally attractant.
  • Wonderful texture that clumps well.
  • Powerful but light weight.
  • Lasts long, making it good value.
  • Free and safe delivery. Bonus in these days of Coronvirus.

 If you have a chance to get outside, please hug a tree for me. And if you can’t, enjoy these trees with cats and their wisdom.

Happy Earth Day Peace, Love & Purrs,

Odin, Nou Nou, Angel Cats and our human, Layla

And I had to include something from our black cat community @blackcatofig on Instagram. This pawsome panther is included in our Black Cats Tell All book.

This post is sponsored by the lovely folks from Catalyst Cat Litter. Check them out. They’re making the planet more purrfect. My favorite is the Healthy Cat Formula. Its mild woodsy scent appeals but they also have an un-scented formula and one for multi-cat households.

Join the Catalyst Cat litter revolution on their social: Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Oh, and one more thing we’re over the moon about. Catalyst has partnered with rePurpose Global a movement of conscious consumers & businesses going PlasticNeutral by financing the removal of ocean-bound plastic worldwide. Now that’s something to jump for joy!

  1. International Cat Day (August 8) should particularly focus on the bleak situation allowed to continue for feral and stray cats, essentially due to human apathy.
    For example, in a neighbouring city there are tens of thousands of these beautiful sentient animals, so many of which are allowed to suffer severe malnourishment, debilitating injury and/or infection by callously neglectful municipal government as well as individual residents who choose to remain silent.
    (Progress might also be made by discontinuing allowing pet cats to roam freely outdoors and notably risk them becoming another predator’s meal or some sadistic person’s target for a torturous death.)
    When I made a monetary donation to the local Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) program, a lady volunteer left me a tearful voice mail expressing her appreciation, which to me suggested a scarcity of caring financial donors.
    No wonder cat TNR programs are typically underfunded by governments and private donors, regardless of their documented success in reducing needless suffering.
    I fear a possible presumption of feline disposability.
    Could there be a subconscious human perception that the worth of such animal life (if not even human life in regularly war-torn or overpopulated famine-stricken global regions) is reflected by its overabundance and the protracted conditions under which it suffers?

    THERE are some guys who’ll understandably hesitate at speaking in public about their particular fondness for pet felines; for, to do so, unlike with expressing affection for a good sturdy canine friend, may be generally stereotyped as a man’s non-testosterone pet-animal inclination. And, yes, there are many people out there who’d implicitly (or even explicitly) question the normality and/or straightness of a guy who adores his pet feline(s)—something that’s implied by first-season Seinfeld’s George Costanza, who, in a doubtful tone of voice and slight shake of his head, says to Elaine Benes (without looking at her) in regards to her boyfriend cherishing his two pet felines: “Guys with cats … I don’t know …”
    George’s line rushed to mind after one response I received after posting a short essay onto a feline-fan site (accompanied by an adorable-enough feline photo, of course) elicited from a reader a disconcerting response subtly questioning my heterosexuality, which left me feeling both resentfully embarrassed and angry.
    It also brought to mind an early-1990s Vancouver Sun letter to the editor—aptly titled “A Man With a Cat Is Where It’s At”—in which the writer, a straight guy who adored his two pet felines, responded to some recently published cat-critical commentary. He frankly cautioned straight single women about relationship-seeking heterosexual guys who love dogs but dislike domesticated felines; for, what such men really want in a mate is, basically, submission—unlike the dudes with cats who more than appreciate a companion’s independent nature as well as a silky soft touch.
    Within, Steve Eykel of New Westminster wrote the following response to another letter author’s cat-belittling: “Let me take a wild guess: [the writer] is a dog person, not a cat person. It’s not too surprising really. After all, a dog will lick your hand, grovel, cringe, do tricks and generally make you feel like the big strong alpha male you wish you could be. A cat will do none of these things. Women take note! This is an acid test for any man’s character. A man who prefers dogs is looking for subservience; a man who prefers cats is looking for a partner. You heard it here first.”
    I further recollected how as a teen I knew two of the (if not the most) toughest, testosterone-laden, and (like myself) straight guys around, who also cherished their pet cats—albeit, no average guy would’ve foolishly openly expressed his pet-feline enthusiasm amongst his demographic peers, lest he seriously risk being unjustly deemed a wuss or in some other way having his reputation permanently besmirched.

  2. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post. We hope you had a fantastic Earth Day as well. We did the best we could without going out during the lockdown. We hope you are staying well and have a beautiful rest of your week.

  3. Benji the crazypants pup here thinks every day is Earth Day…digging in any earth gives him such joy…much to the chagrin and annoyance of petcretary…and I am not allowed outside…unless I sneak through a doggy door…to enjoy digging my own in his fresh earthly messes, MOL!

    Loved seeing your blossoming trees! Our weeping cherry is now in full bloom, though it has been more profuse in past years.

  4. Happy Belated Earth Day! Every day is Earth day. We saw some really cool pics and vids on the news showing the impact of people not being in the parks etc. around the world and the animals coming out and doing what they do naturally without interruption or fear, so cool!!!! They also show pics of major cities that are smog free due to the lack of traffic, again so cool.
    We will check out the litter fur sure.
    Luv the pics!
    Luvs to all !
