In the Funny Or Die video, Cedar, Pine and Corn have just arrived at their
secluded cabin in the woods to unwind and get back to nature after their "Pure
Nature" tour, when Bolton comes barging in, seeking solace from his "Michael
Bolton lifestyle." Cedar, Pine and Corn offer their support by teaching
Bolton about being one with nature.

"I think Funny or Die is hilarious and we'd been looking for an opportunity to
work together. When they brought me this concept, I thought it was very
funny," said Bolton. "In the video, I am running away from my celebrity life
and bump right into the feline folk group Cedar, Pine and Corn," said
Bolton."It was great collaborating with the cast and crew of Funny Or Die and
the folks at Tidy Cats; we really laughed a lot while shooting this video!"

To highlight Tidy Cats® Pure Nature™ and its three key product ingredients –
cedar, pine and corn – Tidy Cats created a talented trio: Pete Cedar, Larry
Pine and Kitty Corn. This fictional group of cat-centric crooners, "Cedar,
Pine and Corn," set the stage for the video's entertaining afternoon with
Bolton. Additionally, a series of comedic videos that showcase Pure Nature
through a "behind-the-scenes" look at the trio can be found at
www.TidyCats.com/cedarpineandcorn.As part of this project, a donation will be
made to a pet-friendly nonprofit organization.

"We're thrilled to have our feline folk trio team up with Funny Or Die and
Michael Bolton to celebrate the launch of our new Tidy Cats® Pure Nature™ cat
litter," said Keith Peterfeso, Tidy Cats, Assistant Brand Manager.
