What is cat litter tray?
When we talk about cat litter tray, we mean the box that is used as a toilet for cats and it’s also called a toilet or litter box. On the other hand, the litter is the sand contained in the litter box and can be agglomerating, non-agglomerating, silicon crystal or vegetable litter, the latter is the most environmentally friendly choice today. The different types of litter differ in the way in which their contents are disposed of.
How to keep cat litter tray clean
The cleanliness of the litter tray is essential. Cats are particularly hygiene-conscious animals, so if the toilette is not properly cleaned, they may decide not to use it. To ensure cleanliness, it is necessary to check the condition of the litter box frequently and to change the sand regularly.
To avoid the formation of unpleasant odours, the faeces should be removed at least once a day with a hygienic scoop, and the sand should be changed about every fortnight, making sure that there is always 7 to 12 cm of sand left, so that the cat can cover his needs completely.
The sand should be disposed of in the general waste; it shouldn’t be disposed in the toilet, as it would clog up the waste pipes in the long term.
In addition, to ensure a clean environment around the cat litter box, it is advisable to place a hygienic mat near the box to catch any dirt that remains under the kitty’s paws.
