How The Kingsbrook Animal Hospital Staff Make Their Cats Love The Litter Box
The litter boxes should not be all in one place. If you have stairs, you should have one litter box on each level of your home. The best place to put a litter box is in a private, quiet area because no one likes to be bothered when they are in the restroom.
Most cats prefer litter boxes that are NOT hooded, because they can hold in the odor.
Make sure the litter is at least 3-4 inches deep to allow for proper coverage.
Most cats prefer unscented, perfume free, clumpable litter. Our veterinarians recommend Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat litter.
Lastly, completely dump out and wash the litter boxes with a mild soap (not bleach or ammonia) every 2-4 weeks.
As always, if you have any questions about your cat's health contact us at 301-631-6900 for an appointment.
