Are You Dealing With Litter Box Issues?

Cats can have particular issues about their litter box that can cause them to go somewhere else to do their thing. If you are dealing with litter box issues, here are some things that you should look into so you can get to the bottom of the problem.

  • Dimension of the litter box—The box should be a little bit longer than the body of the cat and should be wide enough so it will be easy for the cat to turn around.

  • As much as possible, don’t use litter box liners.

  • Many cats prefer using a litter box that has no cover. If the litter box that you have bought comes with a cover, try removing the cover and see if your kitty will use it.

  • If it’s a new cat, make sure to use the same litter he’s used to in his previous home. If you have forgotten to ask, try using litter that’s unscented, clumping, and fine-grained.

  • The sides should be low enough so it will be easy for kittens or older cats with joint problems to get in and out of the box.

Litter box issues may be caused by pain and discomfort associated with certain health issues. A visit to your North Phoenix, AZ vet clinic can help identify what’s causing your pet’s behavior. Visit their site for more information.
