My Maine Coon, Abby, adored her litter box. One of the craziest things she used to do was move around in the newly changed litter boxes promptly after I got done with cleaning and refilling them. She had an awesome time asserting the virgin litter as her very own sandbox to play in.
I have since met one other feline in my training who does likewise. I don’t have the foggiest idea about that each feline will love his litter box very that much, however here are some approaches to guarantee he adores it enough to utilize it routinely.
1. Have the correct number of cat litter boxes
Offer your felines enough litter boxes. While most specialists concur that you ought to have one more box than the quantity of felines who share them, this isn’t generally reasonable. On the off chance that you have one box for each two felines, that ought to be adequate, if they are scooped regularly (no less than two times every day). Remember that two boxes in a similar territory consider “one” litter box to a feline. Set up a couple of various litter box regions in your home to energize their utilization.
2. Consider the area of your litter boxes
Place litter boxes in effortlessly available, low-activity zones in your home. On the off chance that you put the container in a region that is always involved, a feline might not have any desire to utilize it. Similarly, if a feline needs to stroll past Rover’s dozing spot to get to the crate, she’s probably going to pick somewhere else to “go.” And, more seasoned felines won’t not have the capacity to scale and down the stairs like they used to, so give no less than one box on each level of your home.
3. Don’t place your litter box near your cat’s food
In nature, felines keep their end zone as far from their homes as could be expected under the circumstances; this fends off predators from their living space. Since felines won’t eat where they kill, a feline litter box that is near the nourishment bowl most likely won’t get utilized. I once appeared to deal with two kitties and found that their sustenance bowl was situated at the foot of the litter box. You can envision the express the sustenance was in. I prescribed to the customer that the sustenance be moved to an alternate room, and their litter box conduct issues cleared up quickly.
4. Make sure your cat fits comfortably in his litter box
Your feline litter box must be sufficiently vast to oblige your kitty’s whole body. In the event that her rear end stands out when she’s inside, she either won’t utilize it, or her point will be coordinated toward your floor. In like manner for littler felines and cats: Use a crate that is little and simple for them to enter and exit, changing the case measure as the cats develop. When I initially received 3-week-old Smoochie, we needed to utilize a small cardboard box as her litter box until the point that she was sufficiently enormous to utilize the huge felines’ cases. With respect to senior felines, they should have the capacity to effortlessly move in and out.
5. Consider litter boxes with and without tops
Which write does your feline favor? Despite the fact that you may like that a top contains spillage and smell, your feline may lean toward the boundless expanses of a non-lidded box for simple section and snappy ways out. Others may need the protection that a cover gives, particularly if there are some kitty spooks in your family who get a kick out of the chance to single out the others when they’re utilizing the case. Offer the two sorts to see which one your feline likes best. I bring to the table the two kinds in my family unit, and you may need to do that, as well.
6. Pick a feline litter that is simple on the toes
On the off chance that your feline doesn’t care for how the litter feels on her paws, she won’t utilize it. A few sorts of litter are no picnic for delicate paws (particularly for declawed felines). Fine finished sandlike pieces are simpler on paws than extensive, thick pieces with sharp edges. You may need to change brands or sorts a couple of times until the point that you locate the one your feline lean towards. I tragically changed the sort of litter I was utilizing, and my felines instantly let me realize that they had no expectation of utilizing this interesting new substance. I returned to what they like, and I have no plans to take a stab at whatever else until the end of time.
7. Clean your litter box frequently
Scooping your litter boxes frequently will urge your feline to utilize them, as will disinfecting them consistently. I scoop my crates no less than two times per day, once in a while more regularly in case I’m telecommuting on a given day. In any event once every month, exhaust the crates and wash them with boiling water and a catalyst killing item, for example, Nature’s Miracle or Zero Odor. Once the cases are totally dry, refill them with crisp, clean litter. Additionally investigate your litter boxes for breaks and profound scratches that can hold in the scent, and supplant them as required. Some crates hold up longer, however it’s normally a smart thought to supplant them yearly. Therefore, your home will smell crisp and clean, as well.
