Cali cat

I am fortunate enough to be a blogger sponsored by Filtrete. This means that they send me product to use in my home, so I can share my experiences about the product with you. My last post, Keeping a clean Home Starts with your Filter was the first in a four post series. Last time I talked about my kids, so this month I am going to tell you about my second set of kids – my pets. This is Cali. She is my crazy cat who thinks she rules the world. She probably does secretly from her lair under my bed. Her best friend is a toss up between the two kids and Fenway, our Boston Terrier.


Fenway is a super huge pushover and basically sits around and lets Cali rule his life. As much as my family and I love our furry four-legged friends, sometimes they just stink. When Fenway comes in from outside, he smells like rotton garbage. I swear he has anxiety problems and he worries he won’t get let back in the house. I figure that horrible smell is secreted when he sweats with worry! It stinks and then it stinks up the house!

Cali thinks she doesn’t smell, but I have to admit her poop is not full of roses! She can hang with the big dogs in the smell department. Now, since we are pet lovers, we needed to figure out a way we could all live under the same non-smelly roof!

Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter

Filtrete Brand from 3M makes an entire line of filters for your home’s heating and cooling system. So no matter what the allergen, odor, virus, bacteria or dust bunny is, Filtrete filters it! The one we use works on reducing home odor. It’s unique two-sided design captures the airborne particles on one side and removes the odors on the other. In mere minutes after the fan is turned on the strongest odors start to dissipate  This increases your home’s air quality and makes for easier particle-free breathing. For only $15.99, you can have 3-months of odor removal and particle capture AND keep your beloved pets!

The American Lung Association (ALA) releases the State of the Air Report in April, which identifies the cities and towns with the worst outdoor air. But, did you know that the air inside your home could be 2-5 times worse than the air outdoors according to the EPA? Do you need an air remodel?
