If your cat has been soiling the house, rather than the litter box, then you might not be keeping that litter box clean enough for their high standards!
Cats Expect a Clean Litter Box to Do Their Business
Do you want to use a dirty bathroom? Of course not! Well, your meticulous cat does not want to use a stinky, poop-filled litter box, either. It's up to you to keep the litter box clean enough to meet your cat's needs. Otherwise, you are going to find cat droppings around your home.
More Than One Cat? How to Get them Both to Use the Same Litter Box
If you have more than one cat, then you may run into the problem in which one of the cats occasionally refuses to use a litter box soiled by her housemate. To solve this problem, you'll need to keep all of the litter boxes in your home very clean, so that each cat will feel they have a clean "box of their own" in which to do their business. In some cases, for the most finicky cats, you might need to add additional litter boxes. NOTE: Avoid placing all the litter boxes in one location. If you do this, your cats will think of them as one big box and will ambush one another to lay claim to the box.
Picky Kitty When It Comes to Kitty Litter Box
Your cat may be picky about a few things when it comes to "doing their business""
Where the box is kept
The type of litter in the box
The level of clean
If your cat keeps going in one place in your home, but not where the box is, then consider moving the box. If this is not possible, consider changing the type of litter in the kitty litter box. Some cats are really picky about the litter used in the box! Change the type of litter might encourage them to go in the box kept in the location that you want it to be.
If the location and type of litter don't resolve the problem of your cat leaving droppings around the house, then you may need to clean the litter box more frequently. In some cases this could be once a day rather than every few days.
A clean litter box is essential for the health of your cat and your home. It doesn't take much time or effort to keep it clean. And paying for a little extra kitty litter sure beats paying for carpet cleaning services to remove the stink out of your floors and home.
