"Greed is good!" - I can hear the Trixie Litter Tray Cat bag dispatcher shout, while thumping the table with his fist during the team's weekly brainstorming session. And it's that greed that has lost them a customer.
We started buying these as a tie-over while Bob Martin sorted their stuff out (supermarkets were selling "Large" liners that wouldn't fit your jeans pocket, let alone a big kitty tray).
At £2+ we thought that is a lot of money, for what essentially is a clear plastic sheet (with a glued bottom), but hey ho - beggars can't be choosers.
At even 20p per sheet, that's 4 x more than M&S charge for their carrier bags, and those are pretty, with writing and handles. But we were paying at least 26p per liner, which is a huge amount of money for a peace of plastic, when you think of it.
We could've forgiven that, because the liners are pretty good (M&S good), the convenience of home delivery, which was was prompt. I'd even go as far as say that we were willing to overlook a few flaws and stick by them. Don't get me wrong - they are good, but cats have claws- if they can deface a much loved family sofa, these bags are not a challenge to them by a long shot.
Then came the price increase. I cannot say this with a 100% guarantee but I think it initially jumped a few (20?)pence while it was still in £2+ region, but then it sneakily snuck across the line to £3.02, and that's where we drew the line.
Overall two stars are to reflect value for money (3 would be too much even if the price hadn't gone up, as I said - even in the £2+ region it was too much to ask), especially taking into account the current pricing.
Delivery - good.
Fits well in a large size tray. You need to secure them in place, otherwise they will be all over, and unless your cat is a feline prodigy with immaculate space awareness, edges will be peed on.
Be careful when you empty the bag because it's a bit difficult to make a little 'sack' with it to throw out, have a carrier bag ready.
