There are many different types of cat litter boxes on the market today. The problem can be sometimes it can be difficult to tell which kind of litter box that you need for your cat or kitten. Hopefully this article will help you determine which litter box is right for you and your cat.
The first thing you should know about cat litter boxes are that they are your cats domain. Cats like their areas they frequent clean and neat. This is why generally cats will not sleep on an unmade bed but when its made and neat they will curl up and sleep. Likewise if a cats litter box is messy they my be reluctant to use it or even worse not use it at all. So make sure whatever style of litter box you choose for your pet meets the following two factors. Make sure the litter box is large enough for your cat and that they do not looked cramped up when trying to use it. Your cat should be able to walk easily in the box with its hind end hanging out. The other factor to always keep in mind is to clean the box frequently. The litter box should be scooped out every couple of days and should be completely changed with new litter every week and a half to two weeks.
Decide which styles of litter box is right for you and you cat. If your cat is a small kitten a small litter pan will do just fine. However if your cat is large you may need a jumbo litter box. There are also automatic cleaning litter boxes and these are perfect for people on the go frequently. Automated litter boxes make cleaning simple as the only work you ever have to do is dumping the tray and changing the litter from time to time. Other nice options are enclosed cat litter boxes. Enclosed cat litter boxes features a cover over the box the gives your cat some privacy it also has a filter in the top to filter out smells and odors. Cats like privacy as much as we do and I know for myself I like to use the bathroom solo and so does your cat. You might also consider buying a regular cat box and also buying a privacy tent or decorative fencing to add more privacy to your cats litter box area as this adds to the solitude of your cats bathroom experience. The less traffic the area of your house receives where you place the cats litter box the better.
Cats are picky creatures and are picky with their litter boxes. Make sure that your cat gets exactly what he or she needs for its litter box experience. The worst thing to have to deal with is a cat peeing in the corner of the house or in the potted plants. Don't let this unfortunate event happen to you. I am sure your life revolves around much more than scrubbing cat pee from the corner of the room.
