Are You Useing The Right Cat Litter

Cat Crazy Newsletter

To help cats use the box appropriately, you need to do lots of right things…

You need to have enough boxes (the general rule of thumb is that you should have one litter box per cat plus one OR one litter box per floor or level of your house, whichever is more.).

You need to make sure they are in an appealing place for your cat to use – a place that is quiet, private and easy to access. Damp cellars, noisy locations, and high traffic areas are common locations that cats don’t like.

Another factor is using the right litter. As you may know, there are several types of cat litter on the market these days. They vary of scented, unscented, scoopable, clay, flushable, recyclable and silicone. Many cats have a definite litter type preference. There are even litters on the market that help to tell you before the litter begins to “smell”. This particular product is called Odor Alert.

To learn how this litter works and see if it is right for you go to: armandhammer.com.

I have one cat that only likes me to buy one particular brand. I can’t tell the difference but if I run out and buy a different brand, he will go outside of the litter box.

Drives me crazy, but he has his preference. What we need to do is to understand what your cat likes and stick to it to avoid problems.

You can test this by adding a litter box or two to your home with some different litters. Which one does your cat like? Take note of which one is being used more.

Next week, I want to talk about how deep the litter should be. This is something most cat owners don’t think about. You will see it can be very important.

Until next time,

P.S. – I got an email from Edna Bates in Ogallala Nebraska. She loves odor alert. She wrote “I love arm & hammer cat litter I won’t use nothing but! I have 3 cats so the smell is bad! Charley is my Manx he is a stinker!!!! He has been with me 7 months now; he was abused and very skinny had worms and ear mites Now look out!!! he is a very playful buddy. The cat litter works great. And the cats love it. Thanks a lot for your column.”

Thanks Edna. Glad you like it.
