Litter Boxes – What You Should Know

What should you really know about litter boxes?

There are several things that determine how (and if) a cat uses the litter box.

We will discuss what you should know about litter boxes below.

How many litter boxes do you need? There is a good rule of thumb that will tell you how many litter boxes you should really have in your home to help avoid inappropriate urination problems. You should have one litter box per cat, plus one. OR, you should have one litter box on every floor of your house, plus one. You should use whichever number is higher.

So, let’s see how these rules work. If you have three cats in a one-floor apartment, you should ideally have four litter boxes. I know that sounds like a lot but that is the correct recommendation. Providing ample little boxes will help to minimize the desire for your cats to urinate OUTSIDE of the litter box.

Likewise, if you have a two-story house with two cats, you should have three litter boxes.

I used to think that a litter box was just a litter box, but that is NOT the case. I hope these tips give you some information about litter boxes and what you should know.
