What happens if you put too much litter in the litter box?
Too much litter will make a mess when your cat steps in and out of the box, and some cats (especially long-haired cats) are actually reluctant to use a box that is too full of litter. But using too little litter can make your cat feel like he won’t be able to bury his waste, which can lead to out-of-box elimination.
Are there so many different types of litter boxes?
There are actually quite a large number of rectangular and oval litter boxes on the market, some that are way slimmer than others, so you do have a large number to. That being said, these days there are so many litter box varieties, you may first want to narrow things down first.
How often should I replace my cat litter box?
Replace any lost litter. If you’re scooping the box out on a daily basis, there’s a chance you might have lost some of the litter, either because it stuck to your cat’s waste or because it simply spilled out during cleaning or use. Topping off your cat’s litter every few days can help keep the box clean and appealing to your cat.
Do you have to use a scoop to clean a litter box?
