Cats Peeing Outside The Litter Box

Are you experiencing litter box woes?cat in bucket

Even if you have only one cat you might have better results with 2 litter boxes.

The number-one problem with cats urinating outside the litter box relates to inadequate cleaning and hygiene of the box.

A simple rule of thumb, One litter box per cat plus one more.

Don’t place them all right next to each other.  Make sure you have them located in convenient places throughout your home.

Think convenience.  If the cat has to travel downstairs to the basement or upstairs to a special place she/he might choose there own spot on the main floor.

Strain your litter boxes at least 1 time a day.  Some kitties may not want to use the box because it is now soiled.  Strain 2x a day would even be better.

Change the litter once a week.
