How To Make Sure That The Cat Litter Box Gets Used

It's a wonderful thing to have a cat as a pet, but there's no getting away from the chores that come with it, other than feeding and giving your best friend attention, you also have to make sure that the cat litter boxes in your home are taken care of. This can be an easy task or a difficult one, depending on your feline friend, some take to using the cat litter box quite easily, while others take a little longer and may have to be coaxed.

No one is happy with their pet using the floor or plant pots as their bathroom, so it's in your interest to get them using the cat litter box as soon as possible. If this becomes problematic there are a few things that check and do to make sure that your cat becomes more comfortable using it's bathroom area.

Cats Need Room

Cats want space when they use the bathroom, we need to make sure that they have the space they need to do it in. Some cat litter boxes come with hoods, they are great for hiding whats inside the box and they provide the cat with some privacy at the same time. They are a problem though if you have a big cat that can hardly turn around in it, in which case they won't want to go inside. If you make sure that they have more space so that they can get in and out more easily then you'll have a happier cat.

Cats Are Naturally Clean Creatures

Cats are very fastidious, and just like you they don't want a messy bathroom, they respond a lot better when they have clean cat litter boxes. It's important that you clean the litter every day, the longer it sits there, the more likely that it will develop unpleasant odours, and because cats have much more sensitive noses than us, it will be put off by this. Further to this make sure that you clean out the cat litter and disinfect the cat litter box at least once a month to help keep control of bacteria that is building up.

Location, location, location.

If you have a cat litter box that is out in the open, and your cat isn't using it, it's likely that your cat needs a little more privacy. Some cats need to be totally alone when they use the bathroom. If you have a multistorey house then place a cat litter box on each of the floors. Finally, get a box for each of your cats, then plus one. With a little care and attention to the purchase, placement, and maintenance of your cat litter boxes, you can help to ensure that your feline friend stays happy and goes to the bathroom where it should.
