What types of litter boxes & trays are there?
Litter trays and boxes sometimes differ significantly from each other in order to suit the preferences of their users. Many are made from a flat plastic bowl with a removable rim. A litter tray with an ejection-proof rim is beneficial if your cat likes digging after doing its business and playing with litter. Covered trays are enclosed litter boxes that allow some privacy and provide a little more seclusion. As well, they are even better at preventing litter from being ejected when scratching. An extra-large version is recommended for very large cat breeds. Self-cleaning litter trays are always odourless and ensure more comfortable waste disposal. With the right litter tray for kittens and young cats, you can quickly toilet train your new arrival.
Where should you put a litter box or tray?
There's a simple answer to this question: A calm place where your cat is undisturbed. After all, nobody likes doing their business if there's chaos around them with someone passing by all the time. It's also important not to put the litter tray by the food bowl to avoid contaminating the food. If there are several cats living in the household, every cat needs its own litter tray, even if they also use the litter tray together
When should a litter box or tray be cleaned?
Cats are very hygienic animals, which should be reflected in their litter box or tray. Ideally dirty litter should be removed shortly after the cat has done its business, but at least once a day. You can also find litter scoops at bitiba. If the litter tray if used more frequently or by several cats, it's advisable to clean it several times a day. How often and how to clean a cat tray also depends on the cat litter used: Some types of litter should be changed more often than others. For instance, clumping litter absorbs odours better and removing the clumped parts and faeces is sufficient. A deep clean with a complete change of litter should take place at regular intervals. Warm water is usually enough to clean the tray, but you can also use mild cleaning products. You will find a selection in our section for litter tray accessories.
How much litter should go in a litter tray?
This depends on the type of litter box or tray, hence on the cat's preferences: A flat litter tray with a low rim is suitable for most felines. Less litter is usually sufficient here, but it should be 5cm in height, or even better 10cm. You need to fill it even higher with litter for cats that like to bury their faeces particularly deep. In this case, a litter tray with a high rim or a covered box are good options. With less than 5cm of litter, toilet use is no longer hygienic enough and more effort is required for cleaning, since it is easier for urine to sink through to the floor.
