Keeping Your Cat's Litter Box Spic and Span

Responsible pet owners should always think about the welfare of their pets. A part of these concerns their cat’s litter boxes. A cats’ litter box needs to be clean and free from any odors so your pet cat will not avoid it. A litter box that is not clean enough for a cat’s taste will be ignored and the cat will eliminate in places that are more to their liking much to the dismay of their owners. Remember that a cat has a much higher number of scent receptor cells compared to humans, so if humans can smell the odor from the box, the cats smell it several times over. It is essential to maintain the cleanliness of the litter box. Clumps and wet litter must always be removed from the box at least a couple of times a day. The box must also be cleaned using soap and water weekly. The old litter must be disposed of properly and a new layer placed in.

A sudden change in your pet’s elimination habits should require an appointment with your vet hospital Gresham, OR sooner rather than later. Visit this website Wildwood Animal Hospital to know more.
