As an Aventura Pet Sitter and Aventura Cat sitter I know firsthand that cats are clean animals. They like to prep themselves often and make sure their coat is ‘cat-clean’ proof. Notwithstanding, if your cat lives indoors his litter box cleanliness is something he depends on you for. Follow these simple steps to ensure that your cat is litter box is clean and up to ‘cat standards’.
- The first step is to discard the used cat litter as well as the litter bag.
- Wipe the entire litter box with a disinfectant. In any case, be careful not to use strong cleaners such as Clorox since the smell and ingredients are extremely strong and could negatively affect the cat is sensory organs and skin. I like to use vinegar which also acts as a disinfectant however is non-poisonous and the vinegar smell usually dissipates immediately.
In the event that the litter box is extremely soiled, it very well may be preferable to totally rinse if off with boiling water and soap and brush off all earth and waste prior to cleaning it down with the disinfectant.
- Place another litter bag into the litter box. Make sure the corners of the bag are hacking over the sides of the box, so you can easily grab it when it is an ideal opportunity to replace it.
- A speedy tip is to sprinkle baking soda at the lower part of the box, which will assist with absorbing strong odors.
- Pour fresh cat litter on top of the baking soda filling about 1/2 to 3/4 of the litter box. Where to put cat’s litter box? Make sure not to over or under fill the box, as this will cause a cat litter mess each time your cat steps all through the box or just insufficient cat litter which could result in your cat soiling its paws.
- I strongly prescribe using pine litter as opposed to other litter types since I discover it masks strong odors all the more productively, it does not emit dust which is inhaled by your cat when they shift the cat litter around inside the box and it lasts clean twice the length other cat litters.
- Contingent upon the amount of cats that you have, boxes should normally be changed a few days. The more cats, the more often it should be done.
So, the writing is on the wall. Follow these easy tips for a squeaky clean litter box. Your catlike will appreciate it!
