Tip & How-To about Cats

Keeping your cats litter box smelling fresh

If your cats litter box is not cleaned every day, or the litter is not changed frequently, the odor will build up. Here are some tips that will help you keep litter box odor at a minimum:


Never put your cats litter box in your own bathroom. The best location for a litter box is in a small closet; preferably somewhere you keep your cleaning supplies.

Avoid using hooded litter boxes. No matter how clean you keep it, the hood will trap odors.

Try lining the bottom of the litter box with a thin layer of baking soda.

Opt for a clumping cat litter. They make it easier to remove waste.

Use a litter box deodorizer.

Be diligent about cleaning the litter box and area surrounding it


The following is a great brand of litter that neutralizes odors upon contact with moisture. I have noticed a difference since we started using it.

How can I avoid the smell coming from the litter box?


I'll require some consistency on your behalf; you should clear out the waste frequently, a couple of times a day, and keep the box itself as clean as possible.
