Let’s talk about litter again!

It is always good to review the basics of your cat’s litter.  Many problems with indoor cats can be avoided by taking care of the “bathroom”

  • Use baking soda in your litter to help keep the odor at bay.  This is an easy, cheap and most importantly, non-toxic deodorizer!
  • Many folks provide multiple litter boxes but keep them all in the same place.  Kitty may not like this.  Place them in different locations if you notice kitty has had an accident outside the litter.
  • Also look at the location of the litter box.  I would not want to eat in my bathroom and neither does kitty.  Don’t keep the litter and the food in the same location.
  • Kitty may like some privacy, but yet not too much.  If you place the litter in the back room beside your canine’s kennel, she may refuse to use it.  Or placing in upstairs only when kitty goes up and down, may cause a hindrance to usage.
  • Of course, you must be daily cleaning the litter.  Cats are very clean creatures and want the same for their bathroom.  Think about rotating the litter box, so you can thoroughly clean and sanitize it every few weeks.  Felines know odor and will be much happier with a clean bathroom.
