You should place your cats litter box in a private location, away from food and somewhere that is quiet.

Tip

Training you cat to use a litter box


For the most part, learning to use a litter box is instinctive for cats; however sometimes they may need a little extra coaching along the way. The following are some tips to help you train your cat to using a litter box successfully.


Place your cat in the litter box after every nap, meal, play session or any other time your cat appears inclined to relieve itself

While litter box training try leaving a small amount of waste in the litter box so the scent can act as a reminder to your cat as to what the box is for

Find a good location - away from high traffic areas; preferably somewhere your cat can access at any time of day/night

Do not place the litter box near your cats food or water

Never punish your cat for having an accident outside the litter box. Instead I recommend firmly saying NO and then placing your cat in their litter box and praising them. This way they will begin to associate positive reinforcement with the litter box as opposed to negative associations.

If you have multiple cats, you should have multiple litter boxes. Like us, cats want their privacy too

Tip

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.

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.

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 much litter should I put in the litter box?


You should have enough litter to allow your cat to easily cover any waste it leaves behind. Make sure that there is enough so that they don't feel the bottom of the litter box. You should give your cat a minimum of a 2 inch base of litter in the box.

My cat has suddenly stopped using his litter box. Why would this be? How can I get him to return to the litter box?


Is there any chance you have recently switched brands of litter? Cats can be extremely particular when it comes to what kind of litter you put in their litter box. If you find one that works, you should stick with it. No need to fix something that isn't broken.

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.
