I had this problem big time... all over the floor around the box, on the walls... so what I did was get one of those big storage bins, at least 12" deep and 24" long... I put a step next to it so the cat could get into it and out of it. Other than a bit of litter that sticks to his paws and shakes off when he jumps out...not a bit of litter around the box or on the wall.

You should buy a plastic mat to put in front of the litter box. This will catch most, if not all of the overflow litter.

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

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.

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.

Why is the height of a litter box important?


You want your cat to be able to get in and out of the box with ease, but high enough to keep the litter from going everywhere. The average height for litter boxes is 6 inches; however you will need a lower litter box for seniors and perhaps kittens as well.

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.

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.
