Cats are excellent pets since they are natural clean creatures. This would mean that they are not that difficult to train when it comes to littering. Their inherent nature will just come out as you train them. Here are some tips in training your cats how to litter.
Litter box placement
You need to place the litter box in an area where cats can easily access it but out of high traffic areas. The area should be quiet and the litter box should be clean. In addition, keep the litter box away from reach of children to avoid any potential accidents.
Show the cat where the litter box is
Carry your cat and show the litter box by placing the cat on top of it and let the cat sniff. This will inform the cat that this is its litter box. You can even show the cat what to do with the litter box by tapping or scratching on it
Have a separate litter box for each cat
If you have numerous pet cats, try to put separate litter boxes since each cat has a significant odor unique to them. If you only put one litter box, your pet cats will get confused on who owns the litter box since they have different scents. Cats do not like to eliminate their wastes on areas of other cats. As a result, they would look for other places to litter other than the litter box.
Keep the litter box clean
Regularly clean the cat’s litter box. It is recommended that you scoop out soiled litter daily and change the litter box weekly. To get rid of the odor, you may wash the litter box with water and some vinegar.
Clean any accidents immediately
It is important to clean any accidents immediately to prevent your cat from coming back to the same spot and defecate. Apply water and vinegar to reduce the odor.
These are some of the tips that can help you train your cat to litter. If you have cats at home, do try these tips and you will be glad of the results.
