You know you need to scoop the litter box. Because it’s such an unpleasant chore, you probably put it off. Is there a good time to scoop the box, or should you just scoop it whenever you get around to it?
It’s not a good idea to just scoop the box whenever you think about it. If you do it this way, you won’t scoop as often as you should, and your cat could end up going potty on the floor instead.
You definitely need a schedule, but fortunately, the schedule itself doesn’t really matter as long as you have one. Scoop every morning, every other day, or the same two days each week. The point is to make sure that the box is clean enough that your cat continues to use it, and he’s confident that it will be cleaned when it gets dirty.
