Cat urine and feces? Really?
No come on. Who ok'd this one for Chowhound. Seriously. Look, I have a cat but when I'm reading about "deliciousness" I don't want to be confronted by this ad for deodorizing a litter box with baking soda. For baking, fine - why can't they advertise that use of the product instead?
You really have to ask why that use? Because baking uses a spoonful at a time, deodorizing can use up a whole box at once. Use more, buy more.
Haven't seen the ad you're talking about though.
seriously? i couldnt care less one way or the other. it isn;t like they are taking actual cat shit and smearing it in my house.
I loaded this thread several times, and I checked on some other tabs I have open:
cell phone ads (was googling a cellphone app this weekend)
ad for the meat grinder I was looking at, from Cabela's
frozen onion rings ad
Haven't see the baking soda ad though. Have you been shopping for cat stuff recently? ;)

Yeah, well, no one wants to be confronted with any ads, really. But the interwebs have to make money somehow in order to provide you with your "deliciousness," and I'm guessing you aren't sending in monthly checks. I've gotten pretty good at averting my eyes; it's not a hard skill to master.
One person's offensive is another person's no big deal. And I'm looking at a Verizon ad right now; a few minutes ago it was a Dodge Ram ad. Neither has anything to do with food, just as the commercials during a basketball game often have nothing to do with sports.
And take a quick scan of the avatars on Chowhound - I think there are cats in about 74% of them. This is probably an awesome place to reach people interested in keeping the litterbox springtime-fresh.
