How to Clean and Manage the Litter Box – Tip 1

Friday, January 29th, 2010

For as many cats as there are in your house or at funny-pictures-mom-cat-is-angry-at-youyour neighbor’s, or for however many people you poll for their litter box routine, you’re likely to get that many different answers when you ask, “How do you clean and manage the litter box at your house?”

Because it might be nice to have “some standards” in mind when deciding to bring a new kitty into your home or because your kitty is now experiencing some different “bathroom habits” from that of his previous box behavior, these tips are designed to help you with your quest in designing the “ultimate” litter box refuse retrieval experience!

1. Take kitty out of the box
Before you can begin to clean the litter box, you will first have to remove kitty from the box. Sometimes kitty will play “hide and seek” in the litter box and scratch around in it, like he’s looking for something, or maybe he’s digging a hole to somewhere; perhaps China! So, remove kitty before you begin.

Add plastic box liner
Though not necessary, like some people, you may want to use a plastic liner in the litter box. And then spread the litter on top of the liner.

Make sure there is enough litter for kitty to be able to dig around in. When the litter’s dirty or emits an odor–you’ll know when you’re ready to clean the box—you’ll then lift the liner from the box, litter and all, to dispose of it.

With little to no muss or fuss!

Another tip awaits you tomorrow; see you then.

Yours in managing the litter box,
