It’s “Catvocate Cody” here, and have I ever been one busy cat! Since I posted my review of new Advanced Natural by World’ Best Cat Litter™, my inbox has been
To help me reply to these questions I have invited my furiends at World’s Best Cat Litter™ to help me answer them.
Cody: So, without further “pawsing” I am happy to present you with the first question that I received:
Why do cats pee and poop outside the litter box? Ohhhh World’s Best Cat Litter™, we can’t wait for your reply!
World’s Best Cat Litter™: There are many reasons cats might choose to do their business outside the box. Often times it’s because the box isn’t properly cleaned and the litter needs to be either scooped more or changed completely. As you know cats have high standards when it comes to cleanliness!
If they have problems accessing the box, feel cramped or don’t like to share it with other cats, they may show their displeasure by simply refusing to use it. Stress as a result of a major change in the cat’s daily routine can also be a factor. Anything from a move to the introduction of a new family member (human or pet) can lead them to stop using it.
If these don’t seem to be the reason, consult your vet to determine if it’s a medical issue.
Cody: That’s some great advice! My human sister has been having this problem with HER kitty! I am going to make sure that she sees this!
When I was a kitten I was super quick when it came to learning about how to use the litter box. For kittens that aren’t as quick as I was, how do you teach them about using the litter box?
World’s Best Cat Litter™: The good news about cats is that they all naturally understand how to use litter (i.e. sand-like substance = bathroom). So the key to teaching them how to use the litter box is to start immediately upon their arrival into your home. Just fill the box with litter and gently place your kitty inside of it so it can start getting used to the smell and feel of the litter. For the next few days continue introducing your kitten to the box whenever it might need to go (i.e. upon waking up, after eating, following playtime etc.) and it’ll quickly learn to use the box on its own. (Please note that kittens must be at least six weeks old to use World’s Best Cat Litter™.)
Cody: Sounds like a plan to me! That is what my mom did with me and it worked like a charm!
My Mom keeps my litter in an enclosed litter box in her bathroom. A number of kitties asked me: Where’s the best spot to place the litter box?
World’s Best Cat Litter™: Sounds like your mom really knows what she’s doing! The bathroom can be a great spot for a litter box. Ideally you want to choose a clean, quiet, low-traffic area where your cat can do its business privately without having others disturb it. It’s very important that your kitty can easily get in and out of the box so remember to provide ample room for easy access.
Cody: You are absolutely right! Do you know that if my Mom enters the bathroom and she seeks that I am “busy” she will apologize to me and promptly leave the room? I have her super well-trained!
How do you prevent cats from tracking litter throughout the home?
World’s Best Cat Litter™: Crunch, crunch…there’s nothing quite like the sound of stepping on some litter before dragging it throughout the floor of your home — never a pleasant experience. The best way to avoid this problem is to purchase a special mat to be placed right under the opening of the box. This way the litter granules get trapped in the mat and away from your carpet. It’s also important to pick a litter that helps you avoid tracking. Litters with a fine consistency can be easier to track out of the box while large granule litters can be tough on a cat’s paws. That’s why World’s Best Cat Litter™ has a balanced granule size that helps avoid tracking and the abrasiveness of large pellet litters.
Cody: That’s what my Mom has too!
I am the only kitty at my house, but I have readers who would like to know: Do I need to have a separate litter box for each of my cats?
World’s Best Cat Litter™: The general rule is one litter box for each cat in your home. However, if your kitties don’t mind sharing and you’re limited on space, you might be able to get away with only one. Just watch out if they have to go at the same time!
Cody: I’m not a sharing kinda guy, and I think that many kitties aren’t. I would go with your one box per cat rule. That sounds like the best bet!
