Breathe Free Litterbox Mate Cat Litter Pad Review

| July 30, 2013 | 13 Comments

Breathe Free Litterbox Mate™Breathe Free Litterbox Mate is made by White Cliff Pet Products, LLC.  A Floppycats’ reader reached out to me and asked me if I had ever tried these litter box odor eliminator pads, and I had not.  She said that she had bought some of the pads and that they were working out quite well for her.

Breathe Free Litterbox Mate is a cat litterbox pad that uses natural minerals to eliminate the ammonia odors typically found in litter boxes.  It helps to neutralize and eliminate the smells in litter boxes.

So I reached out to Breathe Free Litterbox Mate to see if they would send us some to review.  And they did.

Breathe Free Litterbox Mate says, “The minerals in the pad are natural from good old mother earth and completely safe for all animals and humans. In fact after the pads are exhausted (around 30 days) you can snip off the edges and pour the minerals in the garden and it is natural fertilizer.”

I like the idea of Breathe Free Litterbox Mate because I am not a fan of litter with harsh perfumes or chemicals, because it typically leads to inappropriate elimination behavior in kitties.

Breathe Free Litterbox Mate is very new on the market – they just started shipping product on March 6, 2013.

I would like to see the pad be more of a checker board pattern (as I explain in the final review video) – but it did work just fine as it is.  This is just a personal preference.

And our final review video:

We did a quick Q&A session with Breathe Free Litterbox Mate based on questions Floppycats’ readers came up with on Facebook – here are the questions and Breathe Free Litterbox Mate’s answers.

1. Are the minerals and ingredients harmful if actually ingested by a cat or dog?
NO THE MINERALS ARE ALL NATURAL FROM GOOD OLD MOTHER EARTH

2. What happens if my kitty’s claws break the liner when they’re scratching to cover up their business?
THE PAD IS STILL GOOD, AS THEY CAN’T CLAW IT UP DUE TO THE ADHESIVES ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAD. IF THE PAD DOES TEAR A BIT THERE ARE STILL PLENTY OF MINERALS IN THE BAFFLES TO ADSORB ODOR. THE BEST WAY TO INSURE PROPER USE IS TO KEEP 3-4 INCHES OF LITTER IN THE PAN SO IT MAKE IT HARDER TO DIG TO THE BOTTOM

3. How do you know when to switch them out? Other than the recommended 30 days? For example, I would think a household with 4 cats might need them changed more often than a household with 1 cat.
ITS TIME TO SWITCH WHEN THEY BEGIN TO GET THAT LITTER BOX ODOR.

4. Do you plan on making anti virus ones that can kill the corona virus?
WE ARE LOOKING AND TESTING TO SEE WHAT OTHER BACTERIA/VIRUS THE MINERAL CAN ABSORB THROUGH TESTING

5. Does the pad come in different sizes?
AT PRESENT THE CURRENT SIZE IS 16.5′ X 11. WE ARE DEVELOPING SMALLER AND LARGER SIZES BASED ON DEMAND

6. Does it work equally well with all types of litter – scoopable, regular, etc.?
BEST WITH SCOOPABLE AS IT DRIES OUT THE OFFERING BUT IT WORKS WITH REGULAR AS WELL

7. How easy is it to remove… I think their site said there is adhesive on the backside….  Is it OK not to use the adhesive?
IT PULLS UP EASILY AND THE GREAT THING ABOUT OUR PRODUCT THERE IS NO MORE SCRAPING THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX AS ALL THE OFFERINGS STAY OF THE BOTTOM AND ARE DRIED OUT ON THE SIDES. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO WIPE THE BOTTOM AND DRY BEFORE PUT IN NEW PAD

8. Do they fit inside the NVR Miss Boxes?
YES 🙂

    I have to say I am impressed with the company that makes these. We bought them after seeing your first video about it (since we have 3 cats now, we bought the multi pack). The company emailed us a few weeks later to see how they were working for us (great follow up). I told them that we had an issue with it sticking to the bottom, and they offered to put more adhesive on it for us if we would test out to see if that worked. AWESOME!! We scoop at least 2x a day and have NO SMELL AT ALL (except right after they go, LOL), so these pads are a MUST and hopefully the new adhesive will work better! A++ rating for the company!

    These sound great and will have to try. When I watched your video, I’m feeling kinda like you that I clean it out so many times a day, there is really no odor because it doesn’t stay in there that long. Also, I throw out the entire box (except for the NVR miss box because the plastic gets old.
    Really wish I had this for my sweetheart, Angel, who died in 2011 from kidney disease. She voided voluminous amounts multiple times per day and it was really hard to keep up. These will help all the people who have kitties like that keep their odor control down. What a blessing!!! Thanks.

    • Thanks for the reply. On days when you just can’t scoop 2 times this will eliminate all odors. Great thing about your NVR that this pad makes it easy to clean because it removes all moisture from the urine and hardens the eliminations. So sorry about Angel, this certainly would have made it easier

    I use the walnut litter and don’t have a lot of odor issues, except for my boys who don’t cover their business.
    I think the thing that stood out the most was question No 4, having lost a kitten to FIP – this is wonderful news.

    4. Do you plan on making anti virus ones that can kill the corona virus?
    WE ARE LOOKING AND TESTING TO SEE WHAT OTHER BACTERIA/VIRUS THE MINERAL CAN ABSORB THROUGH TESTING

  4. We made this so you can save money on the expensive litters (up to $15 to $40 a month) by just using the store brands clumping litters. Brands with all the special products included just mask the odor, they don’t eliminate it. Tests show that Breathe Free Litterbox Mate kills all bacteria from the urine and fecal matter, the corona virus is one we will target next.

    That’s for the comment and we hope you try it.

    I’m so happy to see you reviewed Breathe Free. These pads are terrific.

    I’ve been using Breathe Free pads for several months now… and will never go back to the traditional way of caring for my litter box. The pad keeps my box so clean and tidy – plus no stink!

    Waiting patiently for these to hit retail stores…

    I attended a cat show in Concord, NH and came across this product. I was skeptical at first because here was another product promising to eliminate odors, but since I recently moved to a very small apartment with multiple cats I thought I might as well try it out since nothing I had tried up to that point had worked as promised. I LOVE this product!!! Finally, I have found something that works and a product that does what it claims to do – no odor!!! I scoop 1 to 2 times a day. In the beginning I wanted to see how good this was, so I waited 2 days to scoop and there was still no odor! You would never know I had cats. The only thing is the adhesive backing does not stay to the bottom on the pan, but I see the company is working on fixing that. Thank you for such a wonderful product. I will recommend it to all my cat guardians! 🙂

    • I am glad you like our product.
      We are working on better and larger adhesive as well as a system that includes a pan with a grate that holds the pad to the bottom.

      One thing we do know is that eliminates all odor.
