The Dreaded Litter Box
It’s part of the home that you try to hide. It’s one that you hope no one stumbles across and, of course, hope no one sniffs and notices it is there.
If you have cats, you know exactly what we're talking about. You could either train them to go outside (unlikely) or use the toilet (as seen on YouTube) — but most likely they use the standard litter box to do their “business.”
As much as you would like anyone else to take care of cleaning and maintaining the litter box, it’s probably your job.
Here are some simple tips to do it faster — and better — and keep things a little more sanitary as well.
Keep it contained
One thing most hate is when the cat (or cats) leave the litter box and bring those tiny litter particles with them, tracking them all over the home.
Placing a mat under the cat box or some type of carpet remnant where the cats step out on helps reduce the amount of litter tracked through the home.
Litter boxes are festering tubs of bacteria and other contaminants that need to stay right there in the box. But a cleaning must happen, at least every day, to keep the clumps from taking over and becoming difficult to scoop.
Wear a proper pair of gloves, and even a dust mask, to keep yourself healthy and safe when doing the scoopin’.
Fresh is best
Besides daily scooping, adding some litter every few days is smart. When the litter gets low, add a little more to keep the litter box sufficiently full so your cats can easily cover over their “deposits”. You don’t want to give them any excuse to skip the litter box for a more convenient area to use, if you know what we mean. And each month, empty and completely wash the pan, and add fresh litter.
One thing that cats may do from time to time is “miss” the litter box, creating nasty odors, especially in carpet. That’s when you need some real help from your favorite carpet cleaning service. Do the right thing. Give them a call. After all, it pays to call a pro!

Cats are sweet animals and they will offer their love to the people that surrounds them. They like to play with the balls and they love to lay their heads to their master. A habit that they love to do, especially in the afternoon. I want to own a cat and play with it and that is a good hobby that I will do every now and then. I want to say thank you to all of the people who are always posting blogs about cats. I will always wait for a new post.
