Tip 1 – Cat Litter Box – Trouble
If you have a cat litter box that has a top part with an opening that sits on top of the regular litter box , you may be experiencing occasional problems with the cat not defecating in the litter box. Cat owners usually get this style of litter box because the contents stay inside when the cat kicks the litter around. Unfortunately not all CATS like to use these boxes due to their enclosed feeling and the quick buildup of smell inside this type of litter box.
The solution is removing the whole top part in order to let the cat use the more ‘conventional’ open shaped litter box. In order to help catch the stray litter use another system like placing the litter box on a larger rubber mat. That will help to catch the stray pebbles of litter as the cat exits the litter box.
Litter box and cat urination problems are the primary reason cats are relinquished to humane societies. Most of these issues can be solved easily with some advice from your vet.
As always, follow the advice below in order
to avoid the vast majority of all litter box related problems.
- Scoop out the poop daily, and change all of the litter weekly. Cats like humans prefer a clean bathroom.
- Every cat should have their own litter box in a private and safe area in a multi – cat household.
