There are tons of perks to owning a cat. For one, cat owners usually get some awesome photography material – Hello?! Hilarious cat memes! Then there is the fact that they sort of have mind control powers. It's true, according to science, cats have developed the ability to make a purr/howl noise that our brain connects to a human baby's cry. Since we're hardwired to respond to a child in distress, we pretty much give them whatever they demand. Think about that next time you find yourself giving your cat extra treats before bed and you're not sure why.

Plus, cats are GOOD for you. It turns out that a 2003 Swiss study found that having a cat in the house is emotionally the same as having a romantic partner. Studies have also shown that cat owners have a lower risk of heart attack and stroke.  But, if there was ever a downside to cat ownership, it is without a doubt, the litter box. Yuck-O. It ranks right up there with changing poopie diapers. You know it's full, you know it's a little smelly but we're all just going to pretend like we don't notice. Even with the aid of a chore chart or an angry sticky note on the fridge, it tends to get "looked over" until the point where someone can no longer take it (or the cat demands it be emptied via it's mind control thing or taking his habits to your shoes instead).

But now NEW Tidy Cats® comes with the added odor-fighting power of Glade™ Tough Odor Solutions to help you take back control of the litter box. That way you can worry less about the smell and spend more time on the important things in life, like reading adorable cat memes to your cat. Pick up a twin pack of Tidy Cats with Glade at Sam’s Club.
