Managing The Cat Litter

Unless you live in a place where your cats spend most of their time outside, then keeping a cat means that you have to manage the cat litter. It isn't the most desirable job on earth, but someones got to do it, for your hygiene and your cat's sake. Managing the cat litter properly will mean that your cat will have less accidents outside the litter tray, cutting down on the cat odours in the house. To ensure you are properly managing the cat litter, there are a few things that you can do about it.


The smell of a litter box isn't that attractive, and it isn't that attractive to your cat either, they have more sensitive noses than us, so it makes sense to control the odours by changing the cat litter every day. The odours can be controlled further by completely changing the litter every month and disinfecting the litter tray, regardless of the type of litter you use. When you are out shopping for cat litter avoid choosing the scented cat litter, this is because it rarely covers up the cat odours completely and it can actually discourage your cat from using the litter tray.

Disposal of Cat Litter

Proper disposal of the litter is a big help in cutting down on the odours. Keep in mind that the majority of cat litter cannot be flushed down the toilet, particularly clumping types, these types will cause them to expand in size and they will block the waste systems. Even if your cat litter says on the pack that it is flushable, consider alternative means of geting rid of it.

If we rule out flushing then the trash is probably your next best option. The odours will just be moved out into the yard near the trash though. If it's possible use a seperate trash can for the cat litter. One method of cutting down on the odours is to double bag the cat litter and seal it to prevent odours escaping.

Something else you could do is to get hold of a litter disposal system, this consists of a sealed trash can with filters to catch any odours trying to escape, and it is easily obtained at any pet store. It doesn't matter if you go for the simple method or the sophisticated, proper disposal of used cat litter wil help prevent the cat smell from filling your home.
