Things To Consider Before Buying Cat Litter Products
If you are picking out a multi-cat litter product, you will need to keep a few things in mind to improve your chances of being happy with the final results:
- You may need multiple boxes- It may be a good idea to buy enough cat litter to keep a couple of litter boxes full. If you have multiple cats, some cats may be territorial and not let other cats use the same litter box they like to use. According to TheNest.com, having multiple boxes can cut down on a lot of fighting between your cats.
- Pick something that your cat will be okay with- Some cats are very picky about the kind of litter they get: clumping or non-clumping, scented or unscented. You may have to perform some trial and error to find out what your cat prefers.
- Know your cat’s allergies- Some cats will be allergic to the ingredients in certain cat litter products, so make sure you check ahead of time for what your cat has a sensitivity to. You may not find out until you put the litter into the box, and if your cat does have a reaction, you need to change out that litter quickly.
