I love my cat, Tiger. He stole my heart when I saw him in a tiny cage at a local flea market. I saved Tiger from what would have probably been a horrible life. When Tiger was a kitten, my husband and I treated him like a baby – still do. Fast-forward 7 years and two “real” children later, I’m still the one cleaning his litter box. While I was pregnant was the one time I didn’t clean Tiger’s box. I refuse to let Tiger go outdoors. I lost too many cats in my life to ever let that happen again. Tiger is my furbaby; he’s a major part of our family and as such, Tiger deserves the best. We are loving Fresh Step with Odor Shield from Sam’s Club; it’s the best cat litter we’ve ever used.

I’m always trying new cat litters out in Tiger’s box, but needed something better, and I found it. Fresh Step cat litter from Sam’s Club is a great deal. I just wish I knew about it sooner. Not only is it affordable, it works. I picked up a 42 lb bag of Fresh Step with Odor Shield for only $14.98. This new Fresh Step cat litter is high-quality litter, with a great low price. I’ve been recommending it to my friends and family for a few weeks now.

When it comes to our small house, I don’t have many options for places to keep Tiger’s litter box. Currently, Tiger’s box sits in our tiny laundry room, right off the kitchen. There isn’t anything I hate more than the smell of a dirty littler box. Before trying Fresh Step Cat Litter with Odor Shield, I was changing Tiger’s litter more than twice a week. Finding this cat litter has really changed my outlook on the cat box, and it’s not so much of a chore anymore. I just scoop the poo, and pee, and that’s it. I don’t smell Tiger’s box anymore, and that makes me happy.

Since Tiger has been with us through two pregnancies, he’s the only pet our two children have ever known. Tiger is extremely close with both Jasmine and Sean II. Every night while we are saying Jasmine’s prayers with her, Tiger will come in and headbutt Jasmine and they say goodnight to each other in their own special way. Sean II also has a close connection with Tiger. I love watching Tiger interact with the kids, and not to mention, my husband is totally in love with him, too. My husband wasn’t much of a cat lover, that was, until he got very attached to Tiger. Now, Sean would do anything to keep Tiger healthy and happy. Fresh Step with Odor Shield keeps the whole family happy by naturally eliminating odor with the addition of chlorophyll and essential oils.

How would your 4-legged feline friend react to you trying to cat beard with it? 


Hey there, I’m Tiffany! I’m a work-at-home mom of two rambunctious children (Jasmine, 9 + Sean II, 5) and recently widowed at just 35 years old. I've remarried and currently live right outside of Baton Rouge in Denham Springs, Louisiana with two adoring cats and a dog. Let's connect on Twitter @fabulousmomblog.


  1. LOL! I actually used exclusively Fresh Step when I had kitties. It was the best. I don’t think they’d like cat beards, but the dogs might be OK with dog bears.

  2. Tiger is adorable! And I’d never heard of catbearding until now. But I’m all about whatever works to keep those cat box smells at bay!
