Depends on the kind of litter. I use clumping kitty litter. You should scoop at least once a day. I scoop whenever I see a litter mess.

The best way to avoid smelly litter trays is firstly keep them out of site, use your laundry room or out house. Secondly clumping litter helps to minimize kitty litter odors.

Why would my cat mess in the house on the furniture or carpet when there is clean litter trays available. Using the white latest in litter available.


If you have more than one cat then you must always have at least one more tray than cats and if some don't get on then make sure the victim has a tray in a location it feels safe from being disturbed. If you only have one cat then make sure you have at least two trays in different locations and make sure they are away from food bowls. Try different types, I have cats that won't use covered ones, cats that only use covered ones, cats that don't like covered ones with doors. I have cats that like to 'perch' so need a good heavy tray that won't tip if they perch on the edge. I even have one that will only use an empty tray ie nothing in it, maybe newspaper. Litter type can make a big difference; some like granular, some like clay, some like wood or paper, some like fine powder. Make it deep. Here is a tip, chicken feed pellets make a good litter and is much cheaper! Much of the above comes from the fact that cats don't like dirty trays so make sure they always have clean trays even if you must clean it several times per day and change often. Many also don't like to use a tray that others use hence the 'extra' tray suggestion if you have a few cats. With all these tips I still see the occasional mistake so my last tip is go to Tescos and buy the 'Rug Doctor' wipes. They are often beyond the tills where they rent out carpet cleaning machines. They are fantastic at removing odours and smells (I should not have to tell you that leaving the odour will attract repeat fouling) They also do a miraculous job of removing all stains.

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.

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.

How can I avoid and prevent a smelly litter box?


You should get into the habit of scooping the waste at least twice a day. You should completely empty and clean the litter box once a week. Scrub the pan and scoop with detergent and a small amount of bleach to disinfect and then rinse thoroughly.
