How Many Litter Trays Are Appropriate for Your Cat

One of the great things about cats is that they can take very good care of themselves. Cats love their humans, but they can survive quite well when the people in their lives need to leave the house for a few days or when they get home late from work.
Cats do not have to be taken outside for walks, and they do not need to go out to do their business. Cats are naturally attuned to use their litter trays, and once trained they will use them faithfully unless severe health or behavioral problems arise.
The key to making that litter tray training work is providing enough litter trays for your cat. If the litter trays you provide are insufficient, or if they are not kept clean, you might find your once fastidious cat relieving itself on the floor or in a hidden corner of the room. As cats are very clean animals, you can avoid this problem by providing your pet with the cleanliness it craves.
Locating the litter trays
The location of the litter trays is an essential part of cat care. Your cat needs litter trays that are conveniently located throughout your home, and it needs enough of them as well. If you have a large home, you need to provide one litter tray on each floor at a minimum.
If you have a two-story home with a basement, that would mean you need three litter trays. That way your cat has a convenient place to go no matter where it is in your home. If you have a very large home with lots of rooms, adding one or two litter trays can be a smart move. Placing one litter tray in each bathroom is a good way to start. You may also want to place an extra litter tray in the basement or an out of the way storage room.
Quiet Please
Most cats prefer that their litter trays be in quiet locations, and owners should keep that preference in mind when placing the pans. Owners should not place their litter trays in high-traffic areas like hallways or living rooms. The noise and activity could cause the cat to avoid the litter tray and seek an alternate place to do its business.
If you are placing the litter trays for the first time, take a few minutes to evaluate your home, including the amount of foot traffic and noise in and around each room. Then place the litter trays accordingly and show your cat where they are. Your cat needs to know where each litter tray is located so it can find the pan quickly when need be.
Once all the litter trays are in place, you need to keep them fastidiously clean if you expect your cat to use them faithfully. Keeping a litter scoop and supply of litter by each pan will make cleaning up easier, and choosing flushable litter can make things even simpler. No matter what type of litter you choose, be sure to check each pan several times a day and clean as needed. Your cat will thank you.
