Litterbox Problems:  There are many common problems involving the litterbox—and most can be solved! Here are some handy tips:

  • Cats need enough boxes: rule is 1 litterbox per cat, plus 1
  • Cats do not like to use dirty litterboxes
  • Many cats do not like scented litter or when you change litter brands (gradually mix old litter with new)
  • Do not change the location of the litterboxes
  • Size of box should be appropriate for size of cat (larger cats need larger boxes with higher sides)
  • If kitty does not like current kind of litter, consider an alternative litter (often healthier for you and your cat!) Some litters include: wheat litters (Sweat Scoop), corn litters (World's Best Cat Litter, Poulty Layer at Fleet Farm), newspaper litters (Yesterday's News), pine litter (Feline Pine) - most of these are better for your health and the environment, are flushable and have very little dust!
  • If problems persist, a health issue could be behind your kitty not using the box; please consult your veterinarian
