CHOOSING THE RIGHT LITTER BOX
You’ll definitely want to find a sturdy litter box that can handle anything. You can choose from a covered or open litter box. An open litter box is more convenient and comfortable for a cat, but can also make it difficult to contain the smells. You can also get a self-cleaning box, which is definitely the most convenient! You’ll also want to get a great litter scoop. Your scoop should be sturdy enough to lift heavy clumps of litter, but design so that it is easy to use.
CLEANING YOUR LITTER BOX
Once you have all of your supplies, you want to make sure you maintain a clean litter box with minimal hassle. The best way to do that is to clean it as often as possible. The more often you clean it, the less likely it is to get very clumpy and harder to clean. You can also place a mat under the litter box to help maintain and spills for easy cleanup.
The litter box should be scooped daily, and thoroughly cleaned weekly. Each time you scoop the litter box, you should scrub the edges with soap and water. When scrubbing the edges and thoroughly cleaning the box, be sure to use cleaning products that are safe for pets.
