The Importance of Cat Litter Hygiene
Don’t forget that cats are very clean animals and their sense of smell is twice as well developed than that of a humans’, hence the importance of keeping their litter box clean.
Why it's Important?
A dirty litter box is one of the most common causes of defecation problems in cats. Keeping the box clean provides your cat with a reliably clean place to use and can prevent house soiling problems.
Moreover, clean litter boxes help to keep your cat from refraining from urination. Intentional urinary retention is quite a common behaviour for cats which have not been given a clean place to defecate in. Poor litter tray hygieneincreases the risk of you cat developing urinary tract infections.
The litter box should be cleaned daily - by removing all solid waste and by replacing any urine saturated litter. – It should also be completely changed on a weekly basis.If you cannot clean the box this often, prepare another one. The litter tray should also be disinfected regularly to remove odours by using hot water and a detergent.
What to do?
Box location is important: Place thecat litter box in a quiet area that is easily accessible. Avoid placing the box in a busy spot (e.g. corridor), near your cat’s food and water bowls (...cats, just like humans, do not like to eat their food next to their toilet!), next to a source of noise (e.g. washing machine), near windows (your cat may feel threatened by anythingthe outside) or close to where it sleeps. Some cats refuse to use the box if it is close to any of these areas.
Number of boxes: if you have a multi-cat household make sure each cat has her own litter box.A basic rule of thumb is that the number of litter boxes in a multiple cat home should be equal to the number of cats plus one.
Depth of the litter in the tray: cats seem to prefer a depth of approximately 3cm in their litter box.
