Josh Wiesenfeld developed the idea for Boxiecat, a one-of-a-kind cat litter delivery service, in 2009 when he became frustrated with the inconveniences associated with litter care. Josh realized that if he was struggling to lug heavy containers of cat litter home from the store, other people were struggling, too. He thought about acquaintances that had back problems and mobility issues and decided to create a service that was good for cats and for the people who care for them.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s report, “Americans with Disabilities: 2010”, nearly 1 in 5 Americans lives with a disability, roughly 30.6 million people have difficulty walking, and about 19.9 million people have difficulty lifting. Many of these individuals have cats that mean the world to them and many others would benefit from the love and companionship of a feline friend but choose not to have one because of the hardship that would be associated with certain aspects of cat care.
As a cat-lover, Josh knew that the litter box is one of the most important parts of cat care so he created an all-natural, premium clumping clay litter that is delivered through a convenient set-it-and-forget-it subscription delivery service. While the Boxiecat litter delivery service is great for anyone who doesn’t want to spend their time making repeated trips to the store to haul cat litter home, it is especially ideal for people who live with disabilities that inhibit their mobility and want to provide the very best for their feline companions.
To date, Boxiecat has shipped hundreds of thousands of pounds of litter to customers all over the United States, many of whom have physical disabilities that make trips to the store to lug cat litter very difficult. Josh says that he “wanted to create something that gave people greater independence and freedom,” and he most definitely succeeded. Josh regularly receives thank you notes from his customers saying what a difference his service has made in their lives, and for Josh, there’s no better compliment than to hear that his service has made it easier for people to care for the feline friends that have brought so much joy into their lives.
