In addition to a lot of love, living with a cat means providing veterinary care, high-quality food, and a comfortable and safe environment without forgetting to choose the best litter box for your cat. Although the latter may seem like a minor issue at first, it can become the main focus of attention if your cat decides to stop using it.

This post gives you some tips for your cat to use the litter box naturally and without problems.

Tips for your cat to use the litter tray

It’s true that most kitties instinctively learn to use the litter box, but having a basic understanding of litter and litter trays can help prevent potential problems. 

Kittens

Most cats feel the urge to dig in sand starting at four weeks. So you don’t need to teach your puppy, but you do need to make sure he knows the litter box’s location in his new environment. 

Of course, remember that cats need privacy, and if you interrupt them while they are in the litter tray, they can get a mania and not want to use it anymore. Be patient. Your instinct will guide you to develop good habits. Every time he does well, give him cuddles and encouragement.

Tricks to teach your cat to use the litter box

Number of trays

The golden rule is to provide your cat with a litter tray and an extra litter box. This may seem excessive to you, but cats are very demanding, and some will not want to use it if it is dirty or if another cat has used it. 

The most exquisite also prefer to use a litter box to urinate and another to defecate. For example, In case you have several floors, make sure one is on each floor. If you have many felines at home, make sure that each one has its own.

Location

Find a quiet and accessible place for your cat, away from its food, where the tray can stay permanently. Avoid spaces with loud noises such as washers and dryers and with many people coming and going through traffic.

Cleaning

Cats are very clean animals and will avoid a litter box that is not cleaned often. Instead, collect their droppings at least once a day, wash the box, and change the litter once weekly. And don’t clean the tray with strong-smelling disinfectants.
