Advertised Product Description
This is our Scoop Away Extra Strength Scented Cat Litter Review. Scoop Away Extra Strength Scented cat litter is advertised as being a more powerful odor control solution that can handle even the most extreme and high-traffic litter box odors. This is accomplished through Scoop Away’s proprietary Odor Guard Technology. Also, this clay compound will form strong clumps and is additionally fortified with Ammonia Shield for maximum odor and bacterial growth control. This product is available in 25 and 38-pound boxes.
Who This Cat Litter is Intended For
This cat litter is intended for dealing with the most challenging litter boxes. These will often time be high-traffic litter boxes used by multiple cats or litter boxes located in small rooms with poor ventilation. Also, the target audience will be those owners and cats who enjoy using clumping clay litter and that is ok with it having a strong perfume smell to help fight off cat odors. Also, the owners are ok with paying a high price for a product if necessary to meet these difficult demands.
What Makes This Cat Litter Unique
This cat litter is unique because it is oriented to try to deal with the harshest litter conditions, something that many litters fall short of and avoid trying to be marketed around being used for. Also, Scoop Away feels that they are up to the task with this product by utilizing a pretty straightforward approach of a simple clumping clay litter. We are impressed with the confidence that they have in the product.
Clumping Ability –
This litter clumps and it clumps hard. The clumps form moderately quickly but when they do they stay rock-hard for days. This is essential to help lock in all of the litter smells that can from a multi-cat box. They are also on the smaller side which means that it saves you litter which equals saving you money. Furthermore, this litter handles urine and other moisture quite well and there is little concern for it potentially pooling up and creating a mess on your cat or during cleanup.
This litter has an extremely strong perfume scent and not a good one. It smells of chemicals and pungent fumes. It is so strong that many cats and owners might be turned off by it from that alone. However, this is the only thing that you will smell because the Odor Guard Technology coupled with the Ammonia Shield means that seemingly all feces and urine-related odors stayed locked in both the clumps themselves as well as the litter. We wonder if this was sort of a last resort by the manufacturer to help ensure that cat odors don’t come to the surface.
This is a very dusty litter, much so than most other clay products. It also tracks quite easily, especially in high-traffic litter boxes which this product is intended for. You can tell that the primary concern with this was fighting odor, not being a tidy litter. Thankfully clean up of cat waste is a breeze and proper maintenance should mean that a box full of this stuff will last for a long period (a month or more) before needing to be completely dumped and refilled.
Online prices for this product typically fall in the premium-price range. This is quite high, particularly considering that this is a clay litter which usually are among the most affordable types of cat litter.
Overall Rating –
The Scoop Away Extra Strength Scented Cat Litter Review earns 3 cats out of 5. What this litter does well it does extremely well, and what it struggles with it has major struggles with. It is true to its word of fighting off intense cat odors from high-traffic boxes. Also, it has some incredible clumping that stays rock hard for extended periods, but the perfume smell from it can simply be overpowering. The dust aspect is also quite frustrating. Finally, the high price was the final nail and is what stopped us from rating it higher despite being one of the best clumping litters on the market.
