Tidy Cats LightWeight Clumping Litter GIVEAWAY #spon


I spent three months of the last year on crutches after two knee surgeries. I suck at crutches. Those experiences demonstrated to me the challenges faced by those who are mobility-challenged. I came to appreciate ADA-mandated ramps and bathroom stalls, and marveled at random acts of kindness by total strangers.

One of the crutch-challenges was carrying a bag of groceries from the car into the house. A simple task became an engineering puzzle which I solved by calling hubby for help. I know that not everyone has that option.

Over the years, I’ve been asked by a couple of readers for tips on how those with physical limitations can best manage litter box cleanup. For the elderly or mobility-challenged, the prospect of hefting a container of litter can be daunting. Even if you have no physical challenges, if you live in an urban area and get around on foot, by bike, or via public transit, hauling a jug of litter home sucks.

Tidy Cats LightWeight Litter Weighs 50% Less

I was excited to try out Tidy Cats LightWeight clumping litter. It weighs a whopping 50% less than traditional clumping litter. Easier to transport home and easier to lift to fill the litter box.

Yet it’s not a lightweight in the clumping or odor suppression departments. I’m really particular about getting litter that clumps hard and doesn’t break into a mound of sand when I clean the box, leaving urine-soaked granules behind. In performance, my experience with Tidy Cats LightWeight Litter was comparable to regular Tidy Cats litter which I swear by–nice tight clumps99.9% dust free and the litter box area smells as fresh as a mountain meadow. None of my cats noticed the litter switch, and comparing them side-by-side I could detect no difference. SRSLY.

Lift Tidy Cats LightWeight Litter Jugs As Easily As A  Bodybuilder!

Hubby noticed the change. When he hefted the jug to fill the litter box, he wouldn’t stop bragging about how his rigorous gym regimen was paying off with a huge increase in biceps strength. “Look! now I can lift both of them over my head at the same time!” I was hesitant to burst his bubble.

At the Tidy Innovations Lab, it was legendary poopologist Hans Hansenberg and his team who formulated Tidy Cats LightWeight, developing a litter that not only is 50% lighter, but also kills odors instantly with the power of Glade. Glade® Tough Odor Solutions ensures that your house won’t reek of cat pee–or of cloying perfumes covering up the smell of cat pee.

Here’s a peek at what goes on at the Tidy Cats Innovations Lab:

I confess that my ego got a little boost when I saw that the Tidy Cats lab cat–Hans Jr.–reads Mousebreath between takes:

One thing that Tidy Cats LightWeight doesn’t do: it doesn’t keep Banzai from yelling to the world that he is evacuating his bowels and proud of it. Maybe the Tidy Cats Innovations Lab geniuses could work on that one.

    We have always wanted to try this!

  2. We’d love to maybe try this, but we don’t tweet!

  3. Sue Brandes says:

    Thanks for the chance. Would love to try this kind. We love Tidy Cat litter.

    • Sue Brandes says:

      We use Tidy Cat clumping litter. It helps to keep our litter boxes smelling clean and fresh longer. I have them in different rooms for 5 kitties.

  4. Raine says:

    I’ve really been wanting to try this, I have to maneuver my litter to the side door then up the front steps which isn’t impossible but I buy the 40 lb containers. I also swear by Tidy Cat, thus would be excellent to try. I wonder if it’ll stop Indy from kicking half of it out of the box for fun?… probably not; )

  5. casper says:

    We love Tidy Cats and would luv 2 try something thats not quite as heavy. Lugging cat litter up the steps to our house is NOT FUN!!!

  6. LuckyLindyLoo says:

    Tigs is just like Banzai. He loves to talk and give a status report while he’s taking a poop.

  7. Cat Scout Aspen (Brenda ) says:

    We go to any lengths to keep a clean box. I use Walmart brands of Special Kitty. I never add more litter unless the box has zero residual urine odor. We all know scoopable litter begins to smell. So, I dump it all out on the trash. I rinse the plastic box. Then, I glove up! I grab my designated “cat box scrubby” and Comet cleanser (or Ajax, which ever is cheaper). I rinse box & Dump rinsate in toilet. Then, I scrub with Comet. Then, rinse 4 times, I dry each plastic box with paper towels and, when dry, I put in new fresh Scoopable litter. At least 2 of the 4 Sisfurrs come running to be the very first to use the newly clean litter boxes!

  8. Nicole Mallory BiteMeCat says:

    I am so greatful to have a chance at winning this. I fosterand take in special n=eds cats. Most have a condition that needs treatment a lifelong disease, elderly, newborn, Nero problems,and birth defects.And I am disabled.
    I brought in a tough guy feral cat. He refuses to put his paws in the litter. He backs up to it and balances on the edge of the cat box. He will now at least walk into it now. He’s likes tidycats. I have another one that will use the box and not bury it because he’s flying at top speed out of there. I was cleaning out the boxes one day and had a cat sitting there waiting for his clean box. I guess I took to long because I turn around and he’s not there. I thought he went to another box, but as I went to pour the new litter in and found the lid popped open and saw that he used the litter in the bucket.

  9. Sandi Skewis says:

    I buy the big buckets of litter, and with a bad back, it’s not fun trying to move them around. Excited to try a lighter weight yet good litter! Cleocatra has liver cancer and her poop smells just awful, and I change her litter several times a day.

  10. Raine says:

    Sorry I left my tweet link in the comments, the form didn’t appear for a while and I thought we were just commenting. 🙂

  11. Ellen Pilch says:

    Great giveaway. I would love to win some for my Mom, she has arthritis and it is hard for her to life the litter.

  12. Boonie says:

    I’d love to win this. My dad is in a weelchare and it’s hard for him to manage the jugs.

  13. J A Moore says:

    My current litter has TOO much dust and is too heavy. Really would like to switch to something lighter & not so dusty. Hope we are winners!

  14. Theresa Spaid says:

    I really like the heavier one with glade. I would like to try the lightweight one also.

  15. Sheila K. says:

    I would love to try this—I’m getting on in years and traditional litter containers are getting a bit heavy for me to lift!

  16. brunhilda says:

    I’ve been very happy with the glade version of the regular litter. It would be nice to try the lightweight cuz I hate carrying litter upstairs!

  17. Clarinda says:

    Glindy has such stinky poos, it would be great to see if the Glade part works!

  18. Very neat and tidy give away.

  19. we live up some stairs and mom HATES carrying heavy stuff up them 🙂

  20. Gingerpuss says:

    My poops can stink up our whole block! We’d love to see if this litter can hold in my stinkies.

  21. Shadow Dance Ranch Kittehs says:

    We *litter*-ally go through a ton of litter here at the ranch! We use both the Tidy Cats clay and the clumping litters. With all the heavy lifting momma has to do for all of us kittehs, the horses, the burros and the sheep, she could use a break with something lighter!
    We had a sort of funny incident with one of the litter pans last Sunday when the flash flood hit. Some water came in right by one of our litter pans. Momma was trying to clean it up and Comanche decided someone better help her *clean up the mess* so her flung the litter out of the pan onto the water to help momma. Needless to say momma asked her to stop, but her couldn’t stop laughing at Comanche for trying to help! Xoxoxo Dancer and the SDR Clan

  22. Raine says:

    My mom has really wanting to try this, she has a steep flight of stairs to her second floor boxes, she dropped one once and it cracked open and there was litter everywhere. Naturally the cats loved it-they started playing in it like they were at the beach.

  23. Michele P says:

    After 5 surgeries on my right arm, I am ready for a lightweight litter! Hmmm… my cat Shadow (who passed away a couple of months ago leaving his buddy Stubby all alone) was famous for hiding out from thunderstorms in the litterbox. He actually liked to ROLL in it to comfort himself from the thunder… even though the litterbox was clean for the most part, I can’t say he smelled wonderful afterwards lol.

  24. Amy Orvin says:

    My cats love to build mountains to cover up their poo after they go. I always praise them for helping. 🙂

  25. malachino says:

    I’d love to try lightweight!

  26. This would be great when traveling (road trip). when we stay at pet friendly hotels, sometimes you have to walk a bit to the room. This would make lugging the cat litter so much easier!
