The thing with litter is, there are so many different kinds of kitty litter and they all come with their own host of warnings, costs and environmental issues. So after months of contemplation, we decided to give some other litter types a whirl. We purchased a small package of Feline Pine (compressed pine pellets) and Swheat Scoop (wheat litter). The Feline Pine is neat; it’s like little compressed pine pellets and actually has a very pleasant smell (forest-y!) I actually like the smell of the litter and the cats didn’t seem to mind it. It’s also priced a little cheaper than Swheat Scoop. The pellets are similar in size to that of compressed newspaper and have an interesting reaction. The pellets break down as they urine and it turns into sawdust. Feces sort of sit on top of the litter or catch a few pellets in it while the cats are cleaning up. I found that it got quite dusty with the urine breaking down the pellets, but if you keep the amount of litter to a couple of inches it is manageable. You also have to be more precise when scooping (same thing with the newspaper pellets), because you can’t exactly sift out larger, clean pellets through your shovel and end up scooping clean litter away as well. However, if you were ever a kid that played in a sandbox, this shouldn’t be an issue for you. It also holds odours in pretty well – I have to say, I did not noticed a wretched smell coming from the box after we switched to that brand.
Prior to using clumping litter, we used compressed newspaper pellets and found it worked (although it didn’t clump as well) but it was expensive. It was not too easy to scoop either, since you couldn’t actually sift through and let the unused litter fall back into the pan. It helped with odours somewhat, but we were not totally satisfied. Malee was brought up on that litter so we kept using it until Paislee came along. Then we moved to something designed for a ‘multi cat’ home, bringing us to the clumping litter scenario. The cats were seemingly indifferent to the litter types, which somewhat surprised me since I’ve heard cats can be pretty particular when it comes to litter and are not good with change. I was not a fan. The house smelled, the stuff was messy, dusty and got everywhere when we were changing or scooping it. Cheap or not, it sucked.
Again, we used to use these however they became cumbersome and superfluous. I don’t think the liner is a necessary step so long as you are cleaning and disinfecting your litter box on a regular basis. They seem like a product that was developed to sell in pet stores (Johnson, we need to raise our sales numbers this quarter…think of a way to sell the customers something they already have…). If you want to line the box, use newspaper or tinfoil (they won’t feel it under all the litter) and change it each week. Apparently, cats don’t really like liners. The bottom line: clean your litter box out and you won’t have to worry about a liner. If you find your litter box is absorbing odours into the plastic, you can replace it every year. We don’t, but I’m just saying, if you find that is an issue, there’s your alternative solution.
They’re so cheap that I can replace them easily whenever I want, but do so yearly. (Around 5 bucks USD) They’re very deep so the cats must jump into them AND out of them, leaving most of the litter off their paws and in the box because they’re paws spread to leap. Also, I keep at LEAST six inches of litter in there, because urine never ever gets to the bottom of the box that way, so you clean the box much less often AND it’s easier to get under the litter and scoop upward. I have marked a line in the corners with a sharpie so I know when the litter is lower then it should be. I use a heavy duty metal extra large scoop, so there’s not much work at all.
The litter gets scooped twice daily; in the morning when I feed them and at night when he feeds them. We scoop the litter into little lunch paper bags and dispose of them with the garbage (don’t worry, we don’t light them on fire and place them on our neighbours’ doorsteps). He cleans the box out weekly and changes the litter. Do we stick to our plan always? No, but it really helps in managing that smell when we do. I don’t care what litter has been used, I find nothing else works as well as continual maintenance.
For pet parents who are especially short on space, a “cat center” does triple duty, not only hiding the litter box but storing pet supplies and keeping cats’ bowls out of canines’ reach. Chaotically Creative‘s solution involved repurposing a rustic cabinet into cat box furniture! Once again, a textured mat is used to remove litter particles from paws. By keeping all of your cat’s supplies in one place, you minimize the risk of running out or being a packrat: everything is within sight and arm’s reach.
6. A Litter Box For NYC Living Full disclosure, this hack is mine. Living in a one-bedroom New York City apartment with three cats has its challenges. I knew I needed at least two litter boxes, but I already had one in the entrance and didn’t know where to put the second litter box. The bathroom was too small, and kitchen and bedroom were out of the question. Thankfully, I was able to make use of a small storage space under my stairs for a private “cat cave” the kitties love using, and guests hardly know it’s there!
Like a typical cat, Malee eagerly awaits the clean litter box so that she can hop in and move litter around to better suit her feng shui, literally one millisecond after the last litter granule falls in the box. It’s like clockwork.
This future-esque looking vessel is not a trash can, but a new age litter box for kitty. It’ll look neat in your home while keeping it clean, too: The Mox Litter Box prevents litter from being tracked around the house and is completey dog-proof. (No hounds here!) Learn more about this goodie on Modernist Cat.
Hi all! Thanks so much for sharing! I also would like to know what is used to disinfect the litter box. Anyone? Anyone? Ferris? I am apparently a little different from the norm here but let me explain. I have three cats. I have two litter boxes. They are Sterilite containers that I got at a Big Box store but you can get them anywhere. They’re a little wider at the top where the lid goes. So, the lid works as a tray on the bottom of the box to catch litter.
We keep a PureAir charcoal filter beside our litter box. It is cleaner and looks nicer than a box of baking soda and needs changing once every 6 months. We’ve found it somewhat helpful in managing the ever smelly issue of cat elimination. I am not a fan of air fresheners (they give me a screaming headache), so I avoid them at all costs. Plus I don’t want to mask an odour, I’d rather deal with it. Finally, cats are pretty finicky (you don’t say), and if they don’t like that smell they’ll find somewhere else to do their business. If you are going to use something, stick to a natural solution like a half-lemon left in a dish near the litter box, an open bowl of vinegar, a box of baking soda or a charcoal air filter.
We have two cats. One bold and pushy, the other our scaredy cat, quite timid. We use a covered box with clumping litter. I keep the scoop at the box and scoop daily into a cheap ziplock and then the garbage. Our box lasts quite a while, when the litter gets low I simply empty, clean and refill. We love our data and the box is no problem at all !! Thank you for sharing….
When space is a premium, you may not have the luxury of adding new cat box furniture to your home. However, this doesn’t mean a hidden box is off the table – rather, it’s under it! If you have areas going to waste, put them to work; Towne & Main utilized the area underneath a side table to store a litter box. To provide privacy for your pet – and hide Fluffy’s messes from guests – install a curtain using fabric and a staple gun. You can also give your covered litter box a mini-makeover with some paint, providing kitty with a space of her own.
Do you have a multiple cat household? Are you overwhelmed with the number of conventional litter boxes in your home? The Humane Society and other sources suggest having 1.5 litter boxes per cat. That means three litter boxes for two cats and five litter boxes for three! Think about all of the crouching, scooping and replenishing involved in a three-cat home. If you love your big family of kitties, but you’re having trouble managing all of their many waste receptacles, then perhaps you need something simpler. The Litter Robot! Voila! Why not replace your five conventional litter boxes with one automatic self-cleaning litter box? It’ll be even more effective, and you’ll have less than 1/5 of the work to do. A Clean Box, Every Time! One of the chief reasons for one and a half litter boxes per cat is cleanliness. As cat owner, there’s only so much scooping that you’re going to be able to do in a day, and the typical cat owner wants to minimize that as much as possible. With only one box and three cats, you’d be practically scooping all day long just to keep the box clean enough to keep your cats satisfied. So, at least with conventional litter boxes, one per cat plus an extra or two is a safe way to ensure that your cats are always arriving at a relatively fresh litter box. But what if there was some device that could clean itself after each use, to ensure that the next kitty to arrive would be presented with a completely clean environment? Oh, what’s that, you say…you say there is such a device, and it’s called the Litter Robot? Well, by golly, how about that? Now, with just one Litter Robot, your multiple cat household no longer has to be a multiple litter box household, too. Touché, Automated Pet Care, touché. Reduced Competition! Another factor that plays into the use of litter boxes in a multiple cat household, and which can necessitate a separate litter box for each cat, is a level of spirited (or sometimes just plain bullying) competition. When one cat decides that the other will have to acknowledge the first cat’s dominance before being permitted to use the litter box, it can lead the second cat to eliminate waste elsewhere to avoid confrontation. But why introduce a second, or third, litter box only to alleviate the symptom, when you could face and resolve the problem directly. With an automatic self-cleaning litter box like the Litter Robot, you not only solve the effects of the competition, but you can actually relieve the competition entirely. When your litter box actually cleans itself after each use, you’ll find that your cats will be less prone to identifying it as “their” domain, but rather see it as a universal (and readily accessible) location to make waste. So, don’t allow one cat to bully the others, but level the playing field with the technologically superior Litter Robot, instead! If your multiple cat household is becoming too much of a burden, there’s a simple and convenient solution that will have you and your cats much happier than before. A Litter Robot is the answer to every one of your multiple cat, multiple litter box dilemmas.
When researching self-cleaning litter boxes, you will be surprised to learn that almost none of these products operate the same way. They comprise a unique category of consumer products where each litter box tends to use entirely different technology than the next—unlike, say, your standard toilet, which functions pretty much the same way as any other toilet. Maybe it's an issue of patents, or maybe it's just because no one has figured out the single best way to automatically scoop cat litter. Regardless, this differentiation has led to some pretty innovative designs, which we're going to discuss in the following paragraphs. History The history of self-cleaning litter boxes is brief, because they've only been around since around 1991. It looks like the first design for an automatically cleaning litter box was patented in September 1991 by Angelo Carlisi. Like most of today's models, it suggests using a motor-driven rake to filter the solids out. The design was probably made possible by the invention of clumping cat litter in the 1980s, which made cat litter less messy and easier to filter. Sensors Most of today's electronic self-cleaning litter boxes are equipped with a sensor. At its most basic, this sensor is activated when a cat enters or exits the litter box. Usually, there is a pre-programmed time delay that begins when the sensor is activated, and gives the cat an adequate amount of time to finish its business before the scooping action starts. Some of the more complex litter boxes have sensors that even register and adjust to the cat's weight, allowing them to accommodate large and small cats alike. Rake To filter out the waste from the clean litter, the majority of cat boxes use an automated rake that sifts the excrement into a waste tray. Some of these litter boxes, such as the Litter Robot, use an ingenious rotating mechanism to do this. The dome-shaped bin itself rotates, moving the litter past a stationary rake. In other models, a rake moves through a rectangular bin, depositing clumps into a waste tray or other receptacle. In some boxes that use this latter mechanism, such as the ScoopFree, the method is enhanced by the usage of crystals that absorb urine and desiccate solids, thus reducing odors and making it less likely that the rake's tines will get clogged. The CatGenie goes one step further, raking solids into a vessel where they are essentially liquefied and disposed into a drain usually leading into the toilet. Safety mechanism It may be easy to imagine a horrifying accident in which your curious cat enters the litter box during its cleaning cycle, but fear not, because the engineers have anticipated this and incorporated solutions into their designs. Many self-cleaning litter boxes have safety mechanisms that are activated when a sensor detects that your cat has entered the box. Once activated, the raking mechanism will stop, and the delay timer will reset, giving your cat an adequate amount of time to leave the litter box.
A lot of people don't like handling cat litter because being in close proximity to feces is just gross—and who can blame them? But there might be scientific evidence to support the positions of those who want to stay away from cat litter by buying a self-cleaning litter box. By automatically scooping the litter, self-cleaning litter boxes both inhibit parasitic and bacterial growth in feces and ensure a minimal amount of contact between the user and the excrement. Research shows that cat feces can, under some circumstances, lead to a variety of parasitic and bacterial infections if not handled properly. Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite excreted in cat feces. Not all cats have the parasite, but they can get a Toxoplasma infection by ingesting infected rodents or the feces of other infected cats. Once infected, a cat can shed the parasite in their feces for up to two weeks. Although rare, people can become infected with toxoplasmosis in several ways. Among those is through the ingestion of anything that has become contaminated by the feces of infected cats. Those who become infected with toxoplasmosis show either no symptoms or mild illness, but it can have severe effects on fetuses when pregnant women become infected. Through the unsanitary handling of soiled cat litter, people can also contract bacterial infections such as campylobacteriosis, caused by the Campylobacter bacteria. Campylobacteriosis can cause flu-like symptoms, such as a fever, headache, cramps, or diarrhea. Cats can also become infected with Salmonella bacteria, in which case, the resulting salmonellosis can be transmitted to humans. Salmonellosis can cause similar symptoms to those of campylobacteriosis, such as severe diarrhea and cramps. While the chances of contracting any of these infections are rare, self-cleaning cat boxes can minimize human contact with potentially dangerous cat feces. Because of this, they might be a particularly advantageous investment for people with diseases that compromise their immune systems and could cause these minor infections to become life-threatening.

Kitty loves it and so does her human!Rating: I wanted a classier-looking enclosure for my cat’s litter box, which resides under my stairs. This has been the perfect fit and she took to it immediately. Fits an XL-size litter box, which is nice because I looked at a bunch of litter-box cabinets and many of them are too small for this size box. Was also super easy to put together and is sturdy/nice material.show more

Similar to the Trixie option, this Merry Products enclosure is larger, forming a bench like you might put in a hallway. The extra room means you can put any litter box you want in it, including a self cleaning litter box. If you prefer to use a standard size box, you can install the optional partition inside, giving you a place to keep litter and the scoop. Again, this one is made of pressboard, so you’ll want to consider waterproofing the inside if your cats are prone to missing the box. Contact paper should do the trick and won’t increase the price very much, which is already at the higher end. The walnut stained color is the more expensive of the two, with the white option going for $159.99 at the time of this writing. Dimensions are 37.5 inches wide by 22.5 inches tall by 21.2 inches deep.
While most wood options for cat litter box furniture are made from pressboard, this is a solid pine box made of 3/4 inch thick boards. When it comes to you, it will be pre-built and ready to go. The finish they apply to the pine is both odor and moisture resistant. The back panel are two solid doors that open fully for easy access. While there’s no place to keep the scoop and litter on this one, it’s still a very handsome piece that will easily hide your cat box. The exterior dimensions are 22.5 inches long by 17.3 inches wide by 17.7 inches high; interior dimensions are 20.8 inches long by 15.7 inches wide by 16.1 inches tall. Again, the large Petmate Litter Pan should do the job here.
Excellent litter boxRating: Clean. If you cat is a digger, this is the litterbox for you. Most litter stays in. Cat jumps in the top, potties, digs, then exits the top. There are grooves on the top to catch some litter. Some goes escape, but nothing like other litter boxes. show more
For something a little different than the standard box-like configurations, consider this neat fake terra cotta planter. Excellent for corners or behind other furniture, this will pretty convincingly disguise your litter box. The ventilation is filtered and will keep the odors to a minimum. While you can’t use your own litter box (including self cleaning boxes), the very base of this one is the litter box, so you don’t have to buy or maintain anything extra. This might not be a good choice for you if fake plants aren’t your thing, but if you like a little greenery in your home, this is an excellent option. Dimensions are 19 inches in diameter by 20 inches tall without the plant. With the plant, it’s 42 inches tall.
This novel approach stacks two single-width units on top of each other to create another layer of separation between the litter box and the rest of the room. The entrance at the top leads to a small shelf with a hole in the floor, allowing for top entry into the litter box compartment. This makes for an overall height of 35 inches, which is perfect for a nightstand. Otherwise, it’s 23 inches deep by 21 inches wide, with a litter box area measuring 22 inches by 19 inches by 13 inches tall. That means a high-sided box like this Pureness Giant High Sides Pan will fit nicely. You’ll probably want to waterproof the bottom part somehow, just to be safe. While the worst part of this unit by far is the paw print vent holes that give away what it’s for, this still makes for a fine option. Colors include white and espresso.
Clean. If you cat is a digger, this is the litterbox for you. Most litter stays in. Cat jumps in the top, potties, digs, then exits the top. There are grooves on the top to catch some litter. Some goes escape, but nothing like other litter boxes.
Available in brown or white, this simple but elegant option stands 20 inches tall. That’s tall enough for an end table or a nightstand, but won’t overwhelm your room. The opening for the cat is eight and a half inches, while the door opens a whole side of the house to make cleaning easy. It doesn’t come with a litter box, and you’ll have to choose somewhat carefully when buying one to go inside. Boxes with tall sides will obscure the opening, while boxes that flare at the top may mean the door doesn’t close easily. The large size of this Petmate litter pan should fit, with measurements of 18 inches by 15 inches by 5 inches. Overall dimensions of the enclosure are 19.25 inches by 20 inches by 20 inches.
If you want to be absolutely sure the enclosure you choose will resist odors and moisture, turning to new materials can make a difference. This unit is made of ecoFLEX, which is a combination of recycled wood byproducts and polymers that creates will far outlast anything made of pressboard. There’s also the added advatage of using recycled materials, if that’s important to you. Otherwise, it’s a fairly standard end table with space inside for a 20 inch by 17 inch litter pan. The overall dimensions are 23.6 inches long by 18.5 inches wide by 22 inches high for the standard size, while the jumbo size measures 30 inches long by 24 inches wide by 28.9 inches high. The jumbo holds a litter box measuring 22 inches by 28 inches, and would be better for multiple cats. Colors for this include Espresso, Antique White, and Russet.
In researching for this list, we found that a common complaint about some of the other bench-style litter box enclosures was that they didn’t open from the top. Having the opening in the top is more convenient for some people and may mean that you can fit litter boxes that might not have fit through the doors of other units. Otherwise, this is a standard large piece, with nicely finished feet and a mahogany stain. This isn’t waterproof, so take additional precaution with the inside as necessary. The external measurements are 29 inches long by 21.5 inches wide by 20.5 inches high. We estimate that means a box measuring 28 by 20 will fit comfortably.
Litter boxes aren’t typically design elements in home decor. This smart and stylish solution, however, hides the box in plain sight — and looks great, too! 1. Gather a basic side table, some twisted jute rope, a short tension rod, and two window valances. 2. Wrap the rope around the table’s front legs to cover them and create a DIY scratching post. 3. Put the valances on the tension rod and secure it at the top of the table’s legs. 4. Slide your kitty’s litter box into the space under…
For a very different looking option, consider this wicker-clad cover. The wicker makes it odor and moisture resistant, as well as easy to clean with soap and water. The litter box, which must be on the smaller side, sits on rails inside, so you can easily pull it out for cleaning. It sits on non-slip feet that won’t damage flooring. Reviews appear to be mixed about how easy assembly is, though most note that it’s a five minute procedure. The large size measure 16.25 inches wide by 19.75 inches long by 18.5 inches tall, which fits an 18 inch by 15 inch pan, preferably something around four inches tall. There’s a jumbo size, as well, which fits litter pans 17 inches by 22 inches.

Keeping your cat’s litter box clean is essential to maintaining good litter box habits and keeping your cat healthy and happy. Luckily, products like a Litter Genie makes it easy to scoop and forget about it. In fact, with a Litter Genie, you can hygienically scoop your cat box for weeks before having to dispose of the sealed cat waste. Think of it as the ultimate diaper pail for your cat.
Now that you know about all the types of cat litter, learn how to safely clean your cat’s litter box. If you’ve found a type of cat litter that works well for your cat, let us know in the comments below.
If you’re wondering how to select the best litter for your cat, this is the article for you. For cat parents, good “cat bathroom manners” are essential. Here’s what you need to know about cat litter, cat potty manners and more:
So Phresh Advanced Odor Control Scoopable Cat Litter works hard to keep your cat’s business discreet so you can enjoy your time together without worrying,”what’s that smell?” This extra-absorbent clumping litter contains natural minerals for superior odor control. It also absorbs moisture quickly for lower consumption of cat litter and clumps tightly for convenient, hassle-free removal and cleaning.

If your cat seems content with his litter situation, we don’t recommend that you change. But if you notice your cat going to the bathroom outside of the litter box or if you welcome home a new cat, you may need to reconsider which litter will work best for your favorite felines.
Wheat-based litter is another popular natural option. Made from ground wheat, the litter’s natural starch and enzymes aid in clumping and odor control. Satisfied wheat litter consumers like that the litter is natural and biodegradable. However, as with corn-based litters, this food-based option needs to be sealed tightly to keep non-feline critters out.
Not necessarily a litter itself, litter attractants can be sprinkled in the box to help cats go where they need to go. Great for training kittens or for cats who’ve lost their way, attractants contain a scent that naturally directs cats to the litter box. It can be pricey, but it’s worth trying for a few months to train or retrain your cat.
Made from scrapped pine or cedar lumber, this litter comes in several different forms. Originally it was produced in pellets, which disintegrate into a sawdust-like form when liquid penetrates them. Wood litter also comes in both finely-ground and roughly-crushed granules, which have varying degrees of clumping capabilities. Commercial wood litter should be heat-treated to remove oils, toxins and allergens.

Question: Kitten Won't Poop in the Litter BoxOctober 14, 20140 found this helpfulMy 5 month old male kitten won’t poop in the litter box. He always used to use the litter box, we never had a problem. Then the past couple days he started using the litter box for pee, but not poop. His box is very clean, so that is not the issue. He normally does it when someone is home. What could I do to get him back in the habit? By Scarlet B. Answer Was this helpful? YesBy Rae B. October 26, 20140 found this helpfulBest AnswerOk, when was the last time you cleaned that litter box? You must either scoop out the clumps and poo every day. If you are using old fashion clay litter you must clean daily and do a complete dump, wash and refill with fresh clay litter once a week. If you do not clean the box once a day and everyday (clay litter or 'scooping' litter), your pet will refuse to use the box and will opt for other locations. Cats always smell about while deciding where they will do their business. You probably hate using a chemical toilet, right? Well try having a cats more sensitive nose and having to smell a dirty litter box. Yuck. Reply Was this helpful? YesBy Holly L. October 15, 20140 found this helpfulThe next time he goes outside of the litter box, get his attention and have him watch you pick up the poop and put it in the box. If he goes in the box when you're home, reward him every time with what he likes best. Remember, consistent, positive reinforcement is the key. Hope this helps! Reply Was this helpful? Yes
Question: Kitten Only Uses Litter Box to PeeBy lilpaw 0 found this helpfulNovember 5, 2009We adopted a kitten from the Humane Society and she is 4 1/2 months old. She easily trained to the litter box and used it fine for 2 months. Then 2 weeks ago she started defecating outside of the box (usually right next to or near it), but not in the box. She urinates in the litter box just fine. Nothing has changed with her box or the litter. She’s been to the vet and has no medical issues. Any suggestions? I cannot figure out why the sudden change in behavior and why she only uses the litter box to urinate. Please help, how do I get her to use the litter box for all eliminations? By lilpaw from San Diego, CA Answer Was this helpful? YesBy NeeNee November 5, 20090 found this helpfulBest AnswerThis is my first post. I grew up with cats and kittens are pretty easy to train. I don't know if this will work for yours, but what we would do was to pick up the poop and put it in the litterbox. They pretty much get the hint if you keep on doing it. Good luck! Reply Was this helpful? YesAdBy Dena Roberts November 8, 20090 found this helpfulBest AnswerI have several cats. I have 4 litter boxes. I scoop them out every day. It sounds strange, but one litter box always only has urine in it, never any poop. The poop is always in the other 3 boxes! Try adding another box. Good luck. Reply Was this helpful? YesBy Beth November 9, 20090 found this helpfulBest AnswerMy first thought was add a second litter box, and I see most everyone has already mentioned that. Someone also mentioned not having too much litter in them. Very true! Cats do not like to sink up to their little ankles in the litter! Definitely scoop every day. Reply Was this helpful? YesBy Maryeileen November 8, 20090 found this helpfulI agree. Try adding a 2nd litter box and let us know if that works. Reply Was this helpful? YesAdRead More Answers
var dualAdDeliveryFlag = true; Observe the cat and notice if he is straining to go and/or crying out. He may claw out a space in a potted plant, choosing clean dirt over a soiled litter box. Or he may squat on your carpet or floor because he associates the sensation of digging in litter with uncomfortable elimination. If you confine him to a closed room with a clean litter box and he ignores it, he may have no control over his actions. This signals that illness, not behavior, is the culprit. The cat is in pain, and your vet needs to determine why. A thorough checkup will reveal whether Kitty has a urinary tract infection, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, arthritis, kidney, liver or thyroid malfunction or other illnesses that may affect his litter box habits. If illness, minor or serious, is the cause, medication or treatment should relieve his pain and distress. Whatever has pushed your cat out of the box, getting him back on track will take patience. If anxiety created the problem, set up a quiet retreat for the cat to do his business in a room or area with minimal household traffic. Provide a large-enough litter box — or two — with the kind of litter your cat prefers, and change it frequently, even several times a day if necessary. You may decide to confine him for a few days to establish a new, calmer routine. Inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, diarrhea or urinary tract infections will abate with medication or treatment, so if one of these caused your cat’s problem, he should return to using his litter box as his discomfort eases. Longer-term conditions, such as arthritis or kidney problems, may mean making adjustments: Be sure the cat’s box is low enough for him to get into comfortably, and offer more than one box to accommodate more frequent usage. Always keep the litter boxes clean by washing and disinfecting them weekly and quickly removing soiled litter.

At least 10% of all cats develop elimination problems. Some stop using the box altogether. Some only use their boxes for urination or defecation but not for both. Still others eliminate both in and out of their boxes. Elimination problems can develop as a result of conflict between multiple cats in a home, as a result of a dislike for the litter-box type or the litter itself, as a result of a past medical condition, or as a result of the cat deciding she doesn’t like the location or placement of the litter box.Once a cat avoids her litter box for whatever reason, her avoidance can become a chronic problem because the cat can develop a surface or location preference for elimination—and this preference might be to your living room rug or your favorite easy chair. The best approach to dealing with these problems is to prevent them before they happen by making your cat’s litter boxes as cat-friendly as possible. See our common litter-box management issues below, and our ways to make litter boxes cat-friendly. It is also important that you pay close attention to your cat’s elimination habits so that you can identify problems in the making. If your cat does eliminate outside her box, you must act quickly to resolve the problem before she develops a strong preference for eliminating on an unacceptable surface or in an unacceptable area.
By Jane Harrell Litter box odor can be the toughest part of living with a cat. Even if it doesn’t bother you, having friends over who “smell cat” is embarrassing. On the other hand, having friends over who remark about seeing, but not smelling, your cat feels great. Thinkstock Here are some simple steps you can take to fight the stink and keep you and your cat happy: 1. Scoop the box daily or more. Old urine and feces might not be as pungent to you as the fresh stuff, but the longer it sits there, the more likely it is the smell will invade the rest of your house. Scoop your litter box early and often to cut down the odor. 2. Replace the litter twice a week. Even if you scoop every time your cat uses the litter box, you’re bound to miss some. And even a tiny bit gets stinky over time. To combat this, regularly dump out the litter, wash the box with soap and warm water (not ammonia-based cleaners — ammonia can make the smell worse), dry it and put fresh litter in. 3. Replace the litter box once a year. Over time, your cat’s claws and your scooper can make small grooves in the bottom and sides of your litter box. These grooves are harder to sterilize and can hold onto odor. Avoid this by donating your used litter box to a shelter or rescue group yearly and treating your cat to a new box. 4. Try litter deodorizers. Using a little baking soda or deodorizer in your litter box can go a long way to a fresher house. However, many cats will stop using heavily-scented litter boxes, so make sure to use a deodorizer that both you and your cat will like (or one that’s unscented). Sprinkle a little bit of the deodorizer over the litter every time you scoop the litter box. 5. Find a brand of litter that smells best to you (and your cat). Try using a different litter in each litter box in your home and seeing (a) which litter your cat prefers and (b) which litter controls the odor the best. (Read more about setting up a litter cafeteria.) You might just find that you and your cat have a litter preference in common. 6. Keep the litter box in a well-ventilated area. One of the biggest mistakes cat parents can make is putting the litter box in a tiny, dark and hidden space. This just allows the odor to concentrate. Plus, if it’s unpleasant for your cat to use, he’ll be more likely to find somewhere else to go — perhaps in the center of your bed. Keep your litter box in a well-ventilated spot where the scent can easily disperse and there’s enough light and room for your cat to get in, move around and come out comfortably.
Types of Cat Litter Biodegradable Cat LittersClumping Clay LitterCrystal Cat Litter Biodegradable Cat LittersOver the past few years, organic, biodegradable cat litters have become increasingly popular, as they have certain advantages over other types of litters. For one, they're more eco-friendly, as they're made from all-natural cat litter substances, which can include materials like wheat, corn, grass, walnut shells, pine or even recycled newspapers. Because of this, they are flushable and can even be composted. Another plus is that biodegradable cat litter typically consists of larger-grained pellets, which in turn makes for acceptable kitten litter, since kittens can't ingest the particles. Many biodegradable cat litters come in clumping varieties. Clumping Clay LitterThe most popular types of kitty litter are clumping clay litters, one reason being the price; they're drastically less expensive than many of the other types available, such as natural, biodegradable cat litter. Most are effective at controlling odors — a key concern for owners when choosing a litter — and they make cleaning out the litter box much more painless. However, most consist of fine-grained clays, which can be dusty or even tracked throughout the house by a cat. Fine-grained cat litter isn't appropriate for kittens under 3 months old, as the small particles can get into their respiratory tract. Clay-based cat litter isn't biodegradable and should never, ever be flushed down the toilet for disposal. Crystal Cat LitterCat owners praise crystal cat litters in user reviews on online retailer sites, but experts typically dislike them because they consist of jagged, crystalline particles that can be rough on cats' feet. On the other hand, many pet owners swear by crystal cat litters because they're extremely absorbent — thanks to the sodium silicate or silica gel used — and don't need to be changed as frequently as other types of kitty litter. One caveat: When the crystals reach their absorbency limit, you can expect a pool of urine in the bottom of the cat litter box.
No one likes the smell of a dirty litter box. But can you imagine if you were the one that had to use that box? No wonder studies have found that at least 10% of cats stop using their litter boxes reliably at some point. Of course there can be medical or behavioral reasons for the problems. But not using the litter box often is traced to nothing more than a dirty litter box. Here’s how to avoid litter box odor and keep your house smelling fresh, which should make you and kitty happier. Keep It Clean The No. 1 rule, and the only thing that will keep litter box odor at bay, is constant cleaning. That means scooping the box out at least twice a day, removing the solids and liquid clumps if you use clumping litter. For those who don’t use clumping litter, use a large, solid metal spoon (such as a large kitchen spoon) to lift out the most urine-soaked areas each time you clean. Add litter as needed to replace what is removed. Also wash the box weekly, or every other week if you are using clumping litter. Use a mild, unscented dish detergent or a mild bleach spray (20 parts water to one part bleach) and rinse well. Clean your scooper also. When dry, add 2 to 3 inches of litter. Cats don’t like a deep tray of litter and this allows you to add litter as you scoop. Does the Type of Litter Matter? Some litters have perfumes or other additives that claim to help cover litter smell. But to a cat these can smell overwhelming and make the box unwelcoming. Most veterinarians advise against using these products. Many believe that clumping litters, which allow for the easy removal of solids and liquids, keep boxes smelling fresher. But cats can be very particular about which litters they will use. So experiment to find the litter your cat likes best, then stick with it. Does the Type of Box Matter? Almost any easily cleaned plastic container can be used as a litter box, but buy the largest box your home can accommodate. A rule of thumb is to get a box that is at least twice as long as your adult cat and as wide as the cat is long.

Estimated Processing Time: 3-7 Business Days Say hello to the completely reimagined Litter-Robot III Open Air. An expansive litter chamber and larger, upward-facing entryway give the Litter-Robot III that open-air feel, making it much more inviting and comfortable for large cats. An improved, self-adjusting weight sensor can easily detect both small and larger cats. As with all Litter-Robot units, the litter is automatically sifted after each use and waste is deposited into a convenient drawer, all while using less litter and reducing spilling. New features include Drawer Full Indication, Automatic Night Light, Sleep Mode, and Adjustable Cycle Timer. Freedom from scooping has never been more convenient! Backed by a 90-Day Money-Back Guarantee and 18-Month Warranty. Great for cats big and small (5 lbs and up) Self-cleans after each use Reduces litter box odor Saves money on litter No special accessories needed Great for multiple cats Extra spacious litter chamber Enlarged entryway Drawer full indication Adjustable cycle timer Sleep mode & lock out features Automatic night light Features Enlarged Entryway & Litter Chamber The enlarged entryway and litter chamber make it much more inviting and comfortable for large cats. Automatic Night Light An automatic night light helps aid elderly cats during night time visits. The light can be toggled on and off. Adjustable Cycle Timer Depending on your preference, you can choose a 3- , 7- , or 15-minute delay from the time your cat uses the Litter-Robot to the time it cycles. Control Panel Lock Out This optional setting will lock out all button functions on the control panel while still allowing the unit to function in automatic mode. 8 Hour Sleep Mode When activated, for a period of 8 hours, the Litter-Robot will only cycle when the Cycle button is pressed manually. Drawer Full Indication A blinking blue light will notify you when the waste drawer is full. Battery Backup (Optional) The optional Battery Backup Kit will provide 24-48 hours of reserve power, so that your Litter-Robot will remain operational in the event of a power outage. Can kittens use the Litter-Robot Open Air? It depends how much your kitten weighs. The Litter-Robot senses the weight of your cat to know when it enters and exits, which triggers the countdown timer and Clean cycle. Kittens and small cats that weigh less than 5 pounds may not be heavy enough for the sensor to detect. Until they weigh enough, we recommend using your Litter-Robot in “semi-automatic” mode to keep your cat safe and relieve you from litter box scooping. For semi-automatic mode, leave the Litter-Robot switched off or unplugged. When you see your cat has used it, wait about 7 minutes for the waste to clump, then turn it on/plug it in. The Litter-Robot will automatically perform a Clean cycle (takes about 2 ½ minutes), after which you should turn the unit off/unplug it again. Continue this supervised, semi-automatic mode until your kittens have gained sufficient weight to activate the Cat Sensor. Can I use the Litter-Robot for multiple cats? Yes! Multiple cats can use the same Litter-Robot—and each one will have a clean place to go each time, thanks to the automatic Clean cycle. More cats means more waste, so make sure to empty the waste drawer more frequently. Use this infographic to learn how many units are best for how many cats.

I have had multiple cats for as long as I can remember, but when I went out of town for several days, none of my friends, that agreed to feed the animals, will scope the cat litter! I am so glad that I was desperate enough to consider, review, and purchase this automatic cat litter pan. It is everything, and more, than I had hoped it would be and I am 100 % satisfied with this purchase. I have one, very large, male cat now, and 4-5 days is probably the max time before it needs to be changed. I filled, as directed, with litter from his old pan, and there was no adjustment time. He is still curious, after 3 weeks, about the sound, 10 minutes later, of it sweeping the waste, and goes back to check it out. The floor around the litter pan is cleaner, his paws are cleaner, and I don't have to bend over and scope the cat letter EVERDAY! This Litter Maid Automatic Litter Pan is a product that I should have purchased years ago!

Hi Kristina, I will start saying that almost 99% of cats take to the Litter Robot without problems. I think the issue you are having now with your 2 cats is the fact that the litter box is not always clean and this creates behavioral problems when cats need to share the same litter box.
