Stank Face Prevention!

Stank Face Prevention!

You can be so vigilant. But no matter how hard you try, sometimes you just can’t prevent it from occurring….

Stank Face (stāNGk fās) n.: The universal expression of disgust often caused by litter box odor. Stank Face indiscriminately strikes cat lovers, friends and family alike, typically in the comfort of their own home. Symptoms include watery eyes, feeling like you’ve lost control of your face, crinkled nose, curled lip, contorted mouth and, in extreme cases, involuntary gagging.


I remember the night like it was yesterday, instead of probably almost ten years ago. My mom was visiting me from Florida. My next-door neighbors came over to catch up with her. We were having a great time, laughing and joking in the den. Alex, way before he was a tailless wonder, meandered past us. We didn’t pay him any mind. And then slowly a horrible odor permeated the room. The four of us were silent at first, trying to ignore it. But with every passing second it was harder to control our stank faces.

I have to admit; I didn’t think Alex was to blame at first. He was always so neat and clean, totally his dad’s little boy. I figured one of my companions passed gas. But rather then the smell lessoning it got stronger and worse. Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore. “Do you smell that?”

Based on everyone’s reaction, it didn’t take me long to realize that Alex was to blame. I almost died when I tended to his litter box. Fortunately my mom opened up all the doors and windows to let some fresh air in the house.


After that day, I have been obsessed with stalking the litter boxes. If I am home, as soon as Lucy exits the box I am at the ready with a scooper. But finally my days of worry are over. We can STOP stank face! Tidy Cat’s litter now features guaranteed TidyLockTM Protection that better locks away the odors that can lead to Stank Face. This summer, Tidy is partnering with actress and cat-lover Angela Kinsey (best known for her role as Angela Martin on NBC’s “The Office”) for a public awareness initiative to shed light on Stank Face and the antidote: TidyLockTM Protection.


Tidy Cats litter with TidyLockTM Protection, which better absorbs liquids and features an improved deodorizing system that neutralizes odors to stop litter box stank. TidyLock Protection is available in the Light Weight and traditional versions of our 24/7 and Instant Action clumping litters. And thanks to my friends at Purina I am going to be able to give away FIVE coupons for the litter to one lucky winner!

  1. I can just picture that scene in my head and it makes me laugh. Kiki is my stinky one here. We have actually nicknamed her Stinky Kiki. She used to be Sneaky Kiki, but she’s not as sneaky anymore. Pono can clear a room when he is gassy. Ok, to answer your question, I would say my odd flavor concoction would be mac & cheese w/ BBQ sauce on top.

  2. I think that the question on the rafflecopter is incorrect for this giveaway. It says Share what odd flavor concoction you love. So I will just say that my cats use Tidy Cats all the time. I do not smell the litter box! I love it!! 🙂

  3. The question doesn’t match the giveaway. I’d love to win litter coupons. I spend a ton of money on litter and this would be SO helpful.

  4. lol, this is a fabulous post! I can relate all to well to this envision to ones senses as a cat owner. I don’t want people to know I have cats until the cats come and greet them.

    I love Tidy Cat for this reason!
