Training a cat to use a litter box may be easier than you think. Most cats and kittens have a natural instinct to using a litter box so training is so easy. There are a few things to ensure though before choosing the correct litter box for your cat or kitten. For example, a senior cat will need a litter tray that is low and easy for them, kittens may also need to use a litter tray as they may not be big enough to get climb into a bigger box. Using an unscented, natural litter is ideal because any litter with heavy scents may discourage cats from using the litter box.

Do cat litter boxes need liners?

Even though cat litter boxes do not require liners, many people enjoy the ease of cleaning offered by liners. Alternatively, you can use a disposable plastic liner to line an unlined litter box. Most litter boxes are made of hard plastic and can be cleaned with soap and water. There may be instructions on how to clean and use your litter box.

How do cat litter boxes and trays work?

Litter boxes and trays contain a substrate, cat litter, that absorbs liquid and odor from cat waste. Cats, by nature, seek out a place where they can bury their waste, so a litter box is an obvious option. In addition to covered and open litter boxes, some litter boxes also include high-tech features like automatic scooping or waste separation.
