Did I Hear No More Litter Box?
Cat owners very well know the struggles of maintaining a litter box. No matter how clean you keep it, there always seems to be a nasty smell emanating from it and you always seem to be finding bits of litter in the most random places in your home, like the stove or in between the buttons on the TV remote. Now, it’s a whole other issue if your cat stops using it. As cat owners know, it’s no doubt that felines can be very finicky—especially when it comes to their litter box. If their box isn’t up to their standards for a variety of reasons, you might be finding little surprises around your home. If you’ve been dreaming of a litter-free home, the Litter Kwitter may be your best option!
Why did my cat stop using the litter box?
First thing’s first, it may be a medical problem such as a urinary tract infection or Feline Urethral Obstruction (FEO), which is a potentially life-threatening condition where concentrated urine crystallizes and clogs the urethra. If your cat is not using the litter box and you suspect it’s a medical issue, contact or take him to your veterinarian.
Once your kitty is all checked out and good to go, it’s time to move on to other reasons he or she is not using the litter box:
- Dirty litter box- Cats are clean creatures and they don’t like stepping in their own waste. If their litter box hasn’t been cleaned for a couple days, they might be finding the next best spot to eliminate, which could be your pillow.
- Small litter box- Maybe the litter box you purchased for your kitten was a perfect size, but now it may be too small for your adult cat to comfortably eliminate.
- Not enough litter boxes- Homes with multiple cats should have multiple litter boxes. Unfortunately, cats don’t like to share sometimes.
- New litter- A lot of cats don’t like change and a new litter that smells and feels different may not be appealing to your feline friend.
There are many more reasons your cat isn’t using the litter box, ranging from negative associations your cat has with the litter box to your cat having high anxiety and stress levels. Training your cat to use the toilet can make for a happier home for both you and your kitty.
