DOES YOUR CAT POTTY OUTSIDE THE LITTER BOX?
If so, you are not alone. Several years ago, concerned that so many people got rid of their cats over inappropriate pottying issues, I wrote my first ever veterinary newspaper article on the topic.
Unfortunately, I'm still seeing people with the same problems. So I keep writing articles, hoping to "save" somebody.
Here's a potty smorgasboard. This is how you discover what your cat wants. However, there should be a covered box in the mix and varied locations to be complete.
Here's a good example of a covered litter box. Just kidding, this is just funny, on several levels.
It's very important to keep the litter box clean. This means scooping at least once daily, and dumping the litter, cleaning the box, and putting in fresh litter once a week.
