Why Won't My Cat Use Her Litter Box?

Did you know that nearly one out of every 10 cats or so experiences a litter-box aversion at some point in their lives? That’s a lot of cats ignoring their bathrooms. If your feline friend falls into this category, it’s important to get to the bottom of her behavior.

One common reason that cats shun their litter boxes is that they’re not cleaned out often enough. Be sure to scoop out your cat’s waste every day and change the litter entirely about once a week. Your cat might also have particular preferences on where the box is placed—it must be in a quiet, low-key area of the home where she won’t be disturbed.

Another reason that a cat might refuse to use her litter box is that she’s ill or injured. If you can’t determine another reason for Fluffy’s behavior, it’s time to see the vet. Call your pet clinic Salisbury, NC.
