Here’s a quick checklist with some of the important things to remember when setting up and maintaining your cat’s litter box. Remember, it’s about what’s best for the cat and there are few things on this list you may not have realized could make a difference in the success or failure of the litter box.
THE RIGHT LITTER BOX FOR YOUR CAT
- Size should be 1.5 times the length of the cat from tip of the nose to base of tail
- Boxes should be uncovered to prevent a cat from being ambushed while in there
- Use large plastic storage containers as litter boxes for bigger cats
- Kittens need low-sided boxes initially
