“Tidy Cats is excited to come to the rescue and solve some of life’s stinkiest situations,” said Rebecca Schulz, Tidy Cats Senior Brand Manager. “Tidy Cats Odor Erasers helps with the PU in your litter box and home, and we’re excited for the PU Patrol to travel across America and help with the PU in people’s lives.”
During the next two days, the PU Patrol will be solving the following stinky situations in and around New York City:
•Clean Up the PU: Clean-up a vacant property in Springfield Gardens, Queens. The house has been abandoned for several years, and the property became a dumping ground for trash. Not only is the yard an eyesore, but the rodents inhabiting the yard are a threat to the neighborhood. The Tidy Cat PU Patrol will help the PU in this situation by cleaning up the yard and helping to improve an already vibrant neighborhood.
•No PU from this View: Life stinks when you can’t explore every facet of New York City. On behalf of Tidy Cats, 1,000 New Yorkers and tourists will be able to visit the Empire State Building for free on April 18 and see the city from a bird’s eye view.
•Sweeten up the PU in Life: New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world and Tidy Cats and the PU Patrol will deliver iconic Magnolia cupcakes throughout the city to celebrate New Yorkers and help sweeten up the everyday PU in life.
“The Springfield Gardens community has lived with the indignity of this home for years,” said New York City Councilman James Sanders, Jr. “It had become a blight on our landscape and a threat to the health and well being of our neighbors. Situations like this can easily spiral out of control, with old pollution giving way to new pollution until a once beautiful area is beautiful no longer. I thank our friends at Tidy Cats and the PU Patrol for deciding to step up and step in, working with and through our community to help us revitalize this beautiful block, and maintain the integrity of our environment.”
