Are You Sure You’re Using the Right Cat Litter Solution?
Okay, so it’s really your cat going potty. However, you’re the one deciding what sort of box your cat will use, so I’m holding you accountable. The thing is, for many people, a covered litter box is the best choice.
It provides cats with privacy, it contains the smell, and it hides your cat’s excrement from your immediate view. That’s what we think. However, what matters isn’t what you want but what your cat wants.
Top 3 Tips for Choosing the Best Cat Litter Solution
You’re the one buying the litter box, but consider your cat who will be using it. Think about all the gifts you get for your birthday or for Christmas that you don’t want or are tired of getting. All those pretty but pretty useless mugs, picture frames, and socks that you’re probably going to gift somebody else. Come on, no need to deny it.
Be sure to use Easyology cat litter liners to make cleaning the litter box easier. That said, when it comes to choosing and buying the best box, you ought to remember these simple tips…
Know the approximate size of your cat, and get a litter box that is at least 1.5 times longer than him. Your box should reach the chest area of your cat when sitting, so as to provide privacy and enough space for your litter.
Now, if your cat is still a child or already a senior, he might have trouble getting in and out of the box. In this case, you want a box with one side lower; you can get trays or boxes already cut that way or modify a regular box by yourself.
One word—trays. Covered litter boxes are convenient for humans but not for cats because
• They make moving around awkward
• They don’t offer more than one escape route
• They trap smell, which makes them tens of times more unpleasant to cats
• They tend to be cleaned less often as you can’t see how dirty they are
See how the positives we listed earlier become negative when you see them from your cat’s point of view?
So go for thick uncovered boxes or trays that will allow your cat to move freely and the smell to diffuse. And if you really dislike scooping poop, you can get uncovered, electric-operated, self-cleaning ones.
At the end of the day, nobody loves cleaning bathrooms, but everybody needs to use them. Don’t make it hard for your cat to use the litter box just because you’re the one cleaning it. Consider his feelings and, ultimately, his health, when choosing a cat litter box.
