CURIO Modern Cat Litter Box or Pet House - Walnut + Pattern
The first thing to consider when confronted with a litter box issue is whether your cat is trying to communicate physical discomfort. Urinary tract problems (including cystitis, kidney infection, urinary bladder stones, etc.), diabetes, arthritis, and bowel issues are some of the more common medical explanations for litter box problems. Any time a cat begins urinating outside of the litter box, she should be seen by a veterinarian for a physical examination and to rule out medical causes for the change in behavior. Even if there is a logical explanation for the cat not using the box (such as a new animal in the home), there is a possibility that lack of access to the box has caused the cat to hold her urine, which can cause a urinary tract infection. Problems can occur the other way around as well. A cat with a painful, untreated urinary tract infection can begin to associate the pain of urination with the litter box, creating a possible future behavior problem in addition to the existing medical problem. Urinary tract problems do not always show up on the first test, so work closely with your veterinarian when your cat has urinated outside of the box.
We use a newspaper based litter for our 2 house cats (who are now outside in the daytime cats, so the litter lasts longer) and we compost it. Once the kitties got used to it, it worked great. We now have only one litter problem these days and that is our adolescent dog. Apparently, in his pea-brain, cat poo is delicious….. I know, gross right? So we have had to put the kitty litter tray behind a door that has a cat flap (not a dog flap) so that he can’t get at it. Works well tell someone forgets to shut the door…. 🙁 I love our dog, he is gorgeous, but boy is he dumb and annoying.

Although cats are almost perfect, one of the less appealing aspects of living with them, as well as other animals, is that they have to relieve themselves at least once a day.

Most are content eliminating indoors, in clean, well-placed litter boxes.10 Ideas For Hiding Your Cats Litter Box // Don't sacrifice style for your cat's litter box. This modern looking cabinet will fit right into your home without looking like the dirty litter box it actually is.3. Considering aesthetics first. Litter boxes are sometimes hidden from view so that friends and family do not see or smell them. Often they are housed in remote areas — basements, garages, and attics. Although kitties do their best, some just can’t make it to their boxes in time. This is especially true for kittens, elderly cats, and those who are impaired.Cat parents find creative places to put litter boxes. Some of these locations encourage good litter box habits, others do not. Although medical issues, stress, and poor maintenance can also cause cats to eliminate in unwanted places, litter box placement plays an important role in the boxes’ use. Additionally, although many cats faithfully use litter boxes that are in less-than-ideal areas, certain litter-box locations can cause kitties to feel stressed and anxious.Litter boxes should not be put next to food bowls. If cats have a choice, they will not eat next to where they go to the bathroom. Another common mistake is placing the boxes in high traffic and noisy areas — places people and other animals have to walk, in order to go from one room to another.
