Pine Fresh

Ask any cat lover the best thing about their feline friends and the answer isn’t likely to be changing the kitty litter box. That’s the beauty of Litter One—it’s an all-in-one cat litter solution that never requires changing. After four to six weeks of odorless enjoyment, simply throw the whole American Made kit and caboodle out with the recycling and start anew. The 100% biodegradable box takes less than 20 seconds to assemble and uses pine pellet litter instead of clay. When your cat urinates, the pellets turn into sawdust and fall through a patented false floor into a catch tray. Each Litter One purchase also includes a scoop and 30 freshly scented bags for disposing of fecal waste. With three cats of her own and a father in the lumber business, inventor Natalie Robbins couldn’t help but notice the resemblance between the look of traditional clay litter and pine pellets. But the shape was where the similarities ended. While clay litter can be harmful to your cat’s health and anything but odor-free when mixed with urine, Litter One pine pellets are all natural and odor absorbing. No wonder Litter One passed our sniff test to emerge as one of 10 finalists in our 2014 Product Pitch contest.

    Hi, I'm Natalie, founder of Litter One. After deciding there needed to be an easier, more environmentally way to take care of my cats' litter care needs, I developed Litter One. As a cat lover, I didn't want my feline friends to be subject to harsh chemicals...and I was tired of the unpleasant smells. Litter One is a 100% American Made product. It is a simple, clean, and green way to dispose of your cat's waste. It has a simple set up and an even easier clean up, all you do is throw the box away! Each kit lasts 4-6 weeks. The kit includes everything you need for cat litter maintenance: litter box, pine pellet litter, 30 bags, and a scoop. I am here to answer any questions you have about the Litter One product!

    @David Hi David! According to the American Pet Product Association the average household spends $279 per cat on litter every year. With Litter One it would cost $299 (If you use one Litter One litter kit a month for one cat) This turns out to be $1.67 more a month. What this extra $1.67 a month gives you is a convenient, eco-friendly, and clean American made product.

    I have purchased some disposable litter boxes made by a well known manufacturer and they are 5.00 a pop and only last a week, so this is bigger, more economical as I can see, and has everything in one place, as in the scooper and bags. How thoughtful. I love the idea. Keep em coming for kitty!

    Do you use one box for all three of your cats? Is the 4-6 week period based on one cat using it or multiple cats? What keeps the cardboard false floor from getting wet?

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 12:32 PM

    @Patricia Hi Patricia! I have 4 Litter One litter boxes placed throughout my house. The rule of thumb when it comes to the number of litter boxes to have in your house is one litter box per cat plus one. Therefore, since I have 3 cats, I have 4 litter boxes. If you have 2 cats, you can have 3 litter boxes.

    With that rule in mind, each kit lasts 4-6 weeks or longer. I change my litter kits out every 2 months. The fewer the litter boxes, the sooner you need to replace them.

    The pine pellets absorb 100% of the moisture. The false floor remains in tact and continues to function :)

    @Tracey Hi Tracey! So many happy kitties! The rule of thumb with the number of litter boxes to have in your house is one litter box per cat plus one. Since you have 5 cats, it is recommended to have 6 litter boxes placed throughout your house. If you do have 6 litter boxes in your house then you will not need to replace your litter as often. Also, with Litter One, you will not need to scoop the urine, therefore, less scooping! Yay! :)

    If the pine pellets turn to sawdust and filter in to bottom, does this mean less ans less litter in the box? After 4 weeks, how can there be any dry pellets left? Do you provide refills?

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 1:02 PM

    @Kim Hi Kim! Yes, you are correct! The pellets absorb 3 times as much liquid as the pellet's size. This means 8.5 pounds of pellets can absorb quite a bit of urine! When your pellets are running low, that is the signal to replace the Litter One litter kit :)

    I love the idea of this, but the cost seems quite high. I have 2 cats, which means I would order about 18 boxes per year and spend $450 per year. I don't spend anywhere near that on cat litter. I'm willing to pay more for something that eliminates odors, but I'm estimating that this is more than double what I spend in cat litter per year. If the cost comes down in the future, I would definitely try it.

    How do I train them to use the pellets when they are used to clay litter. Yes i do spend $16-20 every month on kitty litter purchased from Costco so this would be environmentally friendly and on average about the same. I do worry about breathing in all that dust. I have 3 cats but one is outdoor mostly (except in the winter).

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 1:44 PM

    @Maria Hi Maria! Excellent question! It's very simple! Most cats take right to the pine pellet litter (I feel like you cats will fall into this category since they like to be outside). However, if they don't start using it right away, all you do is take some of their old litter (from their old litter box that has their scent on it) and place about an inch of it on top of the Litter One pine pellets. Once they start digging into the pellets and become used to the new smell and texture, then you're good to go! :)

    Natalie... I think your video hit on a SIGNIFICANT reason to not use the majority of litter products on the market - THE DUST. No matter how little there is, it can lead to respiratory issues for your cat, AND you might not even realize it until your cat is a full-blown asthmatic! Not only that, but the dust is in the air, no matter how little or how fine AND it affects PEOPLE! Especially children, the elderly and ANYONE with pre-existing respiratory issues, whether it's allergies, chronic bronchitis, COPD or asthma.

    I like this concept because it changes out the litter box. People don't realize that litter boxes can grow bacteria, etc., just like any surface, including a cutting board in your kitchen. However, unlike that cutting board, most people are not giving their best friends' litter boxes a good cleaning on a regular basis.

    Rather than fuss about the cost of an American Made product that is bio-degradeable and requires no extra room air fresheners, etc., OR CLEAN UP around the litter boxes, and everywhere else the clay litter tracks, I think folks should give it a trial run and see if it works out for them.

    Most people fail to scoop frequently enough, leading to health issues and vet bills for their pets. They might not equate the cause to the effect, but having dated a veterinarian, I've heard and seen this firsthand. A cleaner litter box means a cleaner house... because those cats step out of the litter box WE scoop (OR DON'T SCOOP) and walk all over our floors, furniture, counters, clothes, beds and bodies.

    Honestly... if people thought about it, they would realize that if they're only spending "$40 a year" on litter or something like that, that they may have more health issues (acute, chronic or developing over time) FOR THEMSELVES, let alone their cats, and simply give this a try.

    I know that I'll be giving it a try. Knowing the cost of materials and production, I'm more than sure that you (Natalie) are not becoming a millionaire overnight. I also know that your litter box recommendations are spot on. I have always used the number of cats plus one extra rule, and often, two extra rule. It is TOTALLY true that have the extra boxes does seem to mean they last longer than you would think they should. They fewer the boxes or the dirtier the boxes get, I swear the cats are in them even more than ever... probably to get someone's attention that they need scooping! LOL

    Cats also love the fresh scent and natural products FAR MORE than clay. Zeus hates certain cat litter lines with a passion, while Boomer (my Egyptian line Egyptian Mau) has no real preference except that with some litters, he'll lay in a fresh box of it as if to say, "I approve." whereas for others, he just sort of looks at the litter and me and walks off.

    I'd rather spend a few dollars more a year for a cleaner house, cleaner air and healthier pets and self, and forego two mornings of Starbucks, etc. to cover the cost, than to continue with clay and scrubbing 4 litter boxes good every few days.

    Some might call that crazy, but then again, maybe they don't think about where their cat just stepped before hopping up on the pillow that people are going to bury their face in when they lay down. LOL

    @Kim Hi Kim! Congrats on the new babies!! I have not heard of any cats ever eating the pine pellets. If any pellets are kicked out, my 3 cats do like to play with them (sometimes my dog likes to play with them too!) But they never play in the litter box if that is your concern :)

    The pine pellets do not have a strong odor what-so-ever. They completely neutralize the ammonia smell and give off a hint of a pine smell. You have to put the bags close to your nose to smell them.

    Congratulations Natalie

    I hope the market response is beyond your wildest expectations!

    I have yet to splash out and buy a Litter One, however I have read the comments in the associated conversation and being an engineer I do have a query as to a potential weak point. I wonder if you can respond.

    To set the scene: Due to the uneven distribution of litter in the Litter One litter box, a cat urinates directly onto the cardboard false floor.

    Question: Is this not going to soak and weaken the floor? Or have you waxed or laminated the false floor minimizing / preventing a soggy patch that could give way while wet?

    Technically yours,

    Greg

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 4:54 PM

    @Greg Hi Greg! Excellent question! The scene that you set is a possible one. If your kitty does urinate on the false floor and it gets wet, it will not weaken. The false floor has multiple bases/pillars to ensure that it will stand strong for the 4-6 weeks.

    My cats sometimes urinate right on the false floor. a couple hours later, my 22 pound dog will go and jump in the litter box (why she does this, I have no idea). The false floor does not collapse and there are no additional holes added to the surface :)

    Natalie, what a wonderful product. Are you marketing to the nations largest consumers, baby boomers and elderly? As a baby boomer with a busy schedule, it is awesome to have a product that I only lift to toss after about two months. No more carring 30lb. boxes of cat litter, or lifting/sifting the liter box. WOW! I have RA with limited mobility and this product is going to be awesome. As I continue to prepare my home for winter, I will be tossing all that I use now and will purchase your inclusive product - liter box, pellets, scooper and pooper bags. I read about the reordering of the product as needed, that is icing on the cake. I will be sure to email you so I too can be placed on the reminder list. A great product and good customer service...awesome. Have a blessed day. God Bless. Y. M., Vancouver, WA

    But, eeks, I have 6 cats. 7 boxes? We use the walnut shell litter now which is not inexpensive stuff...but doesn't seem to tolerate humid weather. I have heard that some cats object to the pine smell. Do you recommend a gradual replacement process?

    8/18/2014 10:08 PM

    @Susan Hi Susan! Most cats take right to the pine litter. It is easy to transition kitties who aren't 100% sure with the new litter! All you do is sprinkle about an inch of their old litter (with their scent on it) over the Litter One pine pellet litter. Once they start digging they will get used to the new smell and new texture :)

    I'm planning to send this product to my pregnant cat-loving. I've read that there are several health risks associated with typical litter boxes during pregnancy. Does your disposable system help to address those risks? I hope so!! Also, is there any research about preventing other feline diseases by regular and complete litter box changes. My rabbit and cat both share the same box--even though they each have access to their own box. It may be unfounded but I worry about them spreading inter-species germs!

    The false floor will definitely hold up the big guys! Natalie has had multiple customers who have 22 pound cats. So your guys will be just fine. Enjoy it and let us know your thoughts.

Litter One

Self-Contained, Natural Cat Litter

Pine Fresh

Ask any cat lover the best thing about their feline friends and the answer isn’t likely to be changing the kitty litter box. That’s the beauty of Litter One—it’s an all-in-one cat litter solution that never requires changing. After four to six weeks of odorless enjoyment, simply throw the whole American Made kit and caboodle out with the recycling and start anew.

The 100% biodegradable box takes less than 20 seconds to assemble and uses pine pellet litter instead of clay. When your cat urinates, the pellets turn into sawdust and fall through a patented false floor into a catch tray. Each Litter One purchase also includes a scoop and 30 freshly scented bags for disposing of fecal waste.

With three cats of her own and a father in the lumber business, inventor Natalie Robbins couldn’t help but notice the resemblance between the look of traditional clay litter and pine pellets. But the shape was where the similarities ended. While clay litter can be harmful to your cat’s health and anything but odor-free when mixed with urine, Litter One pine pellets are all natural and odor absorbing. No wonder Litter One passed our sniff test to emerge as one of 10 finalists in our 2014 Product Pitch contest.

    Hi, I'm Natalie, founder of Litter One. After deciding there needed to be an easier, more environmentally way to take care of my cats' litter care needs, I developed Litter One. As a cat lover, I didn't want my feline friends to be subject to harsh chemicals...and I was tired of the unpleasant smells. Litter One is a 100% American Made product. It is a simple, clean, and green way to dispose of your cat's waste. It has a simple set up and an even easier clean up, all you do is throw the box away! Each kit lasts 4-6 weeks. The kit includes everything you need for cat litter maintenance: litter box, pine pellet litter, 30 bags, and a scoop. I am here to answer any questions you have about the Litter One product!

    @David Hi David! According to the American Pet Product Association the average household spends $279 per cat on litter every year. With Litter One it would cost $299 (If you use one Litter One litter kit a month for one cat) This turns out to be $1.67 more a month. What this extra $1.67 a month gives you is a convenient, eco-friendly, and clean American made product.

    Do you use one box for all three of your cats? Is the 4-6 week period based on one cat using it or multiple cats? What keeps the cardboard false floor from getting wet?

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 12:32 PM

    @Patricia Hi Patricia! I have 4 Litter One litter boxes placed throughout my house. The rule of thumb when it comes to the number of litter boxes to have in your house is one litter box per cat plus one. Therefore, since I have 3 cats, I have 4 litter boxes. If you have 2 cats, you can have 3 litter boxes.

    With that rule in mind, each kit lasts 4-6 weeks or longer. I change my litter kits out every 2 months. The fewer the litter boxes, the sooner you need to replace them.

    The pine pellets absorb 100% of the moisture. The false floor remains in tact and continues to function :)

    @Tracey Hi Tracey! So many happy kitties! The rule of thumb with the number of litter boxes to have in your house is one litter box per cat plus one. Since you have 5 cats, it is recommended to have 6 litter boxes placed throughout your house. If you do have 6 litter boxes in your house then you will not need to replace your litter as often. Also, with Litter One, you will not need to scoop the urine, therefore, less scooping! Yay! :)

    If the pine pellets turn to sawdust and filter in to bottom, does this mean less ans less litter in the box? After 4 weeks, how can there be any dry pellets left? Do you provide refills?

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 1:02 PM

    @Kim Hi Kim! Yes, you are correct! The pellets absorb 3 times as much liquid as the pellet's size. This means 8.5 pounds of pellets can absorb quite a bit of urine! When your pellets are running low, that is the signal to replace the Litter One litter kit :)

    I love the idea of this, but the cost seems quite high. I have 2 cats, which means I would order about 18 boxes per year and spend $450 per year. I don't spend anywhere near that on cat litter. I'm willing to pay more for something that eliminates odors, but I'm estimating that this is more than double what I spend in cat litter per year. If the cost comes down in the future, I would definitely try it.

    How do I train them to use the pellets when they are used to clay litter. Yes i do spend $16-20 every month on kitty litter purchased from Costco so this would be environmentally friendly and on average about the same. I do worry about breathing in all that dust. I have 3 cats but one is outdoor mostly (except in the winter).

  • Natalie
    Natalie – Special Guest
    8/18/2014 1:44 PM

    @Maria Hi Maria! Excellent question! It's very simple! Most cats take right to the pine pellet litter (I feel like you cats will fall into this category since they like to be outside). However, if they don't start using it right away, all you do is take some of their old litter (from their old litter box that has their scent on it) and place about an inch of it on top of the Litter One pine pellets. Once they start digging into the pellets and become used to the new smell and texture, then you're good to go! :)

    Natalie... I think your video hit on a SIGNIFICANT reason to not use the majority of litter products on the market - THE DUST. No matter how little there is, it can lead to respiratory issues for your cat, AND you might not even realize it until your cat is a full-blown asthmatic! Not only that, but the dust is in the air, no matter how little or how fine AND it affects PEOPLE! Especially children, the elderly and ANYONE with pre-existing respiratory issues, whether it's allergies, chronic bronchitis, COPD or asthma.

    I like this concept because it changes out the litter box. People don't realize that litter boxes can grow bacteria, etc., just like any surface, including a cutting board in your kitchen. However, unlike that cutting board, most people are not giving their best friends' litter boxes a good cleaning on a regular basis.

    Rather than fuss about the cost of an American Made product that is bio-degradeable and requires no extra room air fresheners, etc., OR CLEAN UP around the litter boxes, and everywhere else the clay litter tracks, I think folks should give it a trial run and see if it works out for them.

    Most people fail to scoop frequently enough, leading to health issues and vet bills for their pets. They might not equate the cause to the effect, but having dated a veterinarian, I've heard and seen this firsthand. A cleaner litter box means a cleaner house... because those cats step out of the litter box WE scoop (OR DON'T SCOOP) and walk all over our floors, furniture, counters, clothes, beds and bodies.

    Honestly... if people thought about it, they would realize that if they're only spending "$40 a year" on litter or something like that, that they may have more health issues (acute, chronic or developing over time) FOR THEMSELVES, let alone their cats, and simply give this a try.

    I know that I'll be giving it a try. Knowing the cost of materials and production, I'm more than sure that you (Natalie) are not becoming a millionaire overnight. I also know that your litter box recommendations are spot on. I have always used the number of cats plus one extra rule, and often, two extra rule. It is TOTALLY true that have the extra boxes does seem to mean they last longer than you would think they should. They fewer the boxes or the dirtier the boxes get, I swear the cats are in them even more than ever... probably to get someone's attention that they need scooping! LOL

    Cats also love the fresh scent and natural products FAR MORE than clay. Zeus hates certain cat litter lines with a passion, while Boomer (my Egyptian line Egyptian Mau) has no real preference except that with some litters, he'll lay in a fresh box of it as if to say, "I approve." whereas for others, he just sort of looks at the litter and me and walks off.

    I'd rather spend a few dollars more a year for a cleaner house, cleaner air and healthier pets and self, and forego two mornings of Starbucks, etc. to cover the cost, than to continue with clay and scrubbing 4 litter boxes good every few days.

    Some might call that crazy, but then again, maybe they don't think about where their cat just stepped before hopping up on the pillow that people are going to bury their face in when they lay down. LOL

    @Kim Hi Kim! Congrats on the new babies!! I have not heard of any cats ever eating the pine pellets. If any pellets are kicked out, my 3 cats do like to play with them (sometimes my dog likes to play with them too!) But they never play in the litter box if that is your concern :)

    The pine pellets do not have a strong odor what-so-ever. They completely neutralize the ammonia smell and give off a hint of a pine smell. You have to put the bags close to your nose to smell them.

    @Kim No problem! Litter One has high sides included in each kit. The back of the box is 12 inches high, and the sides are 9.5 inches high (with a opening in the front so kitty can get in and out of the box with ease).

    Can I purchase the litter ONLY? I have a terrific box already.

    @Mary Kay Hi Mary Kay! I am glad to hear that you love your current box! Litter One provides the entire system, not just the litter.

    We have a good litter solution right now so not thinking of using this for everyday. However, this is an excellent candidate for our emergency box (we are not survivalists, but always try to be prepared). If we buy this product for that use, can we store it for years in the unopened box without an degrading?

    @Bruce Hi Bruce! It is always good to be prepared! If you purchase Litter One and store it in a cool, and dry environment, it should last you a couple of years :)

    Congratulations Natalie

    I hope the market response is beyond your wildest expectations!

    I have yet to splash out and buy a Litter One, however I have read the comments in the associated conversation and being an engineer I do have a query as to a potential weak point. I wonder if you can respond.

    To set the scene: Due to the uneven distribution of litter in the Litter One litter box, a cat urinates directly onto the cardboard false floor.

    Question: Is this not going to soak and weaken the floor? Or have you waxed or laminated the false floor minimizing / preventing a soggy patch that could give way while wet?

    Technically yours,

    Greg

    @Greg Hi Greg! Excellent question! The scene that you set is a possible one. If your kitty does urinate on the false floor and it gets wet, it will not weaken. The false floor has multiple bases/pillars to ensure that it will stand strong for the 4-6 weeks.

    My cats sometimes urinate right on the false floor. a couple hours later, my 22 pound dog will go and jump in the litter box (why she does this, I have no idea). The false floor does not collapse and there are no additional holes added to the surface :)

    This seems like a great idea! Scat, our american shorthair, is quite a large cat. Have you had any feedback about the size of the box? Does it seem big enough for a large 20lb animal?

    @Laura Hi Laura! Thanks! Scat is a large cat! One of my customers had a 22 pound cat, Bootsy. Bootsy loved it! He didn't have any issues, he fit fine :)

    Natalie, what a wonderful product. Are you marketing to the nations largest consumers, baby boomers and elderly? As a baby boomer with a busy schedule, it is awesome to have a product that I only lift to toss after about two months. No more carring 30lb. boxes of cat litter, or lifting/sifting the liter box. WOW! I have RA with limited mobility and this product is going to be awesome. As I continue to prepare my home for winter, I will be tossing all that I use now and will purchase your inclusive product - liter box, pellets, scooper and pooper bags. I read about the reordering of the product as needed, that is icing on the cake. I will be sure to email you so I too can be placed on the reminder list. A great product and good customer service...awesome. Have a blessed day. God Bless. Y. M., Vancouver, WA

    But, eeks, I have 6 cats. 7 boxes? We use the walnut shell litter now which is not inexpensive stuff...but doesn't seem to tolerate humid weather. I have heard that some cats object to the pine smell. Do you recommend a gradual replacement process?

    @Susan Hi Susan! Most cats take right to the pine litter. It is easy to transition kitties who aren't 100% sure with the new litter! All you do is sprinkle about an inch of their old litter (with their scent on it) over the Litter One pine pellet litter. Once they start digging they will get used to the new smell and new texture :)

    Would this work for my rabbit? I currently use pine litter in a plastic box.

    I'm planning to send this product to my pregnant cat-loving. I've read that there are several health risks associated with typical litter boxes during pregnancy. Does your disposable system help to address those risks? I hope so!! Also, is there any research about preventing other feline diseases by regular and complete litter box changes. My rabbit and cat both share the same box--even though they each have access to their own box. It may be unfounded but I worry about them spreading inter-species germs!

    2 of my cats are big guys weighing at 20 pounds. Will the false bottom hold them?

    Hi Sylvie,

    Amy from The Grommet team here. Good question.

    The false floor will definitely hold up the big guys! Natalie has had multiple customers who have 22 pound cats. So your guys will be just fine. Enjoy it and let us know your thoughts.

The launch day conversation has ended. Please direct further questions about this Grommet to our Community Experience Team.
