It is recommended to completely empty and clean the litter box once a week, and then refills it with new litter.

SOURCE: I have three cats. Will two litter boxes be enough or do I need more?

The general rule of thumb in regards to litter box quantity is one plus one - one litter box per cat plus one extra.

SOURCE: How can I make my cats litter box smell better?

The most effective way to having a nice smelling litter box is to keep it clean. To achieve this you will need to scoop out ***** and stool daily and change the litter every 4-7 days.

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.

WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO CLEAN KITTY LITTER


I like the scoopable kind. Then each day you just scoop out the waste and put it in small plastic bag and throw it in the trash. About every month or so, dump the box, clean it and refill with clean litter. If you use the ordinary clay litter just put a little in the box and dump the whole thing each day.

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

How many pounds is 152.6 cubic inches?


Depends on the material that you will fill that space with.
The weight of the material can vary so no answer until that weight is known. You would need at least a 1 cubic inch sample weight.

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.
