Some tips for your cat litter box:

  • Scooping: Scoop the cat litter daily to keep it clean
  • Amount of litter: Add additional litter if necessary but don't overdo it, some cats do not like it when it is too deep
  • Odour control: Sprinkle baking soda at the bottom of the box. Avoid using harsh & toxic chemicals, bleach or artificial fragrances.
  • Washing: Wash the litter box with hot water and soap
  • Number of litter boxes: Multiple cat owners should try to have one litter box per cat
  • Litter box type: Test whether you cat prefers covered or uncovered litter boxes
  • Placement: Avoid placing the litter box near warm places (i.e.: washing machines) as it can increase odours
  • Cat privacy: Placing the litter box in a way that it offers your cat some privacy
  • Training: Trust your cat's instincts and avoid scolding your feline friend to avoid scaring him of the litter box

Compare the different litter boxes and trays and find the right one for your cat. Don't forget to have a look at the various scoops to keep the litter area clean.
