Think inside the box…the litter box, that is!
Party Marty, back on the scene and taking a break from my nap: (I probably need a potty break, too!) Speaking of which, I wanted to share with you a few tips on keeping that litter box area appealing to your feline folk. You wouldn’t want your cat NOT to use it, so please keep these ideas in mind!
- At least once a day, scoop and clean your cat’s litter box.
- Once each week, rinse out the box thoroughly with baking soda or unscented soap.
- Don’t use too much litter. Keep it shallow…no more than two inches deep.
- Use a larger litter box.
- If your cat is old and suffers from arthritis, use a litter box with low sides so she can easily access it.
- Make sure you have a litter box for every cat you have in the house. And if your house has multiple levels, have a litter box on each level.
- Keep the litter box in a quiet, low-light location so your cat can see anyone approaching and escape quickly. The litter box should also be out of sight of the food and water dishes.
Please….just thinks on your cat’s level. I mean, seriously, what if you had to poop in a box? All we ask is for a safe, clean and comfortable environment in which to conduct our business. This also applies to areas where we take our naps! We do demand the best of our owners, you know!
