Have you recently adopted a cat? Planning on adding one to your home soon? Put her litter box in the right spot to make the transition to a new home as easy as possible. Here are some quick tips from your Washington DC veterinarian.
Your cat doesn’t like to be disturbed when using the bathroom; who can blame her? That’s why it’s important to put the litter box in a quiet, out-of-the-way area of the home where your cat can go to the bathroom in peace. In most homes, a bathroom or laundry room tends to work well.
Far From Food
Did you know that a cat may shun her food and drink, or stop using the litter box if her bathroom and meal area are placed in close proximity? Keep these areas completely separate to avoid any trouble. You’re always better off safe than sorry!
Don’t forget to make sure that your cat’s bathroom is easily accessible by her at all times, even when you’re not at home. Don’t let a sliding door or screen block Fluffy’s path!
