No. Try a better clumping litter brand.

SOURCE: How can I train my cat to use the litter box?

Cats learn quickly how to use litter boxes. Keep an eye on your cat at first and after waking up or eating, place your cat in the litter box. If you see your cat squatting, this would also be a good time to place him/her in their litter box. If they happen to have an accident outside the litter box I suggest wiping it up with a paper towel and placing it in the box. Then take your cats paws and place them in the box - this way they will associate what they have just done with the place where they should be doing it. When they successfully use the box for the first few times, make sure to praise them.

SOURCE: Is it better to get a covered or uncovered litter box for my cat?

I prefer uncovered litter boxes. Some cats may become claustrophobic in a covered litter box, giving them a sense of being trapped. Although covered litter boxes may seem like an appealing method of reducing odors throughout your home, consider how your cat will feel. A cats sense of smell is much stronger and more sensitive than ours. Lastly, covered litter boxes can trap a lot of dust. This may seem advantageous; however it is quite the opposite. The dust can be very difficult on your cats lungs and become very unhealthy.

SOURCE: My dog keeps eating the litter out of my cats litter box. What can I do to put an end to this?

There are a few things you can do to prevent your dog from being attracted to your cats litter box. First and foremost, you should try to remove your cats waste as quickly as possible. You can also try sprinkling some meat tenderizer onto your cats food before ingestion. This will help make the smell of your cats ***** less enticing to your dog. Lastly, I would recommend placing your cats litter box somewhere that your dog cannot reach it; possibly by raising the litter box or placing it in a room only accessible through a small cat door.

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 to install these cat pan liners

I hate those liners, the cat usually moves them around or scratches holes in them. I use World Best Cat litter and never have to throw out the litter. It clumps well and never drops to the bottom like a lot of other litter.

XNon functioning littermaid LM980 mega

Common problem with Littermaid boxes. Try a better brand of clumping litter. Try using a little less litter. And you can help the rake lift up by slowly pushing on it with something, giving it more strength. I had this problem and found that if I "helped" the rake return to its normal position, it would work most of the time, and then need "help" every once in awhile. I actually gave up on littermaid type boxes...they just don't work very well.

1 Answer

I would really like my cat to have a clean litter box throughout the day. Do self-cleaning litter boxes really work? If so, this could be a worthwhile investment.

I would recommend you check out the LitterMaid litter box. It has two sensors on either side of the box that detect when a cat uses it. After 10 minutes, a rake automatically comes and scoops clumps of solid and liquid waste into a disposable container at the end of the litter box. Keep in mind that this does not eliminate you cleaning the box.

Why is clumping cat litter better than clay litter?

Neither one is better than the other, they are based on preference. More people prefer to use clumping cat litter. Although clay litter is cheaper and absorbs well, clumping cat litter offers more advantages in my opinion. Clumping cat litter is much friendlier to the environment, seeing as you do not need to throw away the whole litter box every time your cat releases waste. It is easy to dispose of your cats waste products and helps to diminish the amount of odors.

What are the different types of cat litter?

The two most popular types of cat litter are clay and clumping; however there are a few other types that are less popular but still good. Other litter types include biodegradable materials such as plant resources, wood and paper. The newest type of cat litter is called silica. It consists of silica beads/pellets that can absorb your cats ***** without you having to scoop.

I have the Litter Maid Elite. The power light and red light blink continuous, won't stop and the machine will not operate. Unit is month old.

Unplug power. Pull off top, and clean everything. Shoot WD40 in gears on both sides of motor and on surface where cat litter stays. Replace top. This worked for me. WD40 will keep the cat litter from sticking to the surfaces while still clumping correctly.
