How to Make Your Cat Love the Litter Box

By far, the most important way to make cats love their litter box is to keep their litter boxes clean- scoop at least once a day.

You should have one more litter box than the number of cats you have (ex. 2 cats = 3 litter boxes).

The boxes should not all be in one place (if you have stairs, at least one on each level) and need to be in a private, quiet area.

Make sure your litter boxes are large.

Most cats prefer boxes that are NOT hooded.

Make sure the litter is at least 3-4 inches deep at all times.

Most cats prefer unscented, perfume-free,clumpable litter (Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Litter is excellent).

Completely dump out and wash the litter boxes with a mild soap (not bleach or ammonia) every 2-4 weeks.
