    Why is your cat not using the litter box?

    Articlegeneral cat adviceWednesday 31 August 2011

    There might be various reasons why your cat prefer to use all the space in your place except for the litter box. Usually, the main reason is that the cat does not find it clean enough to use it. The litter box should be changed at least once a day. Imagine an unflushed toilet to use!

    However, if the situation repeats even if the litter box is fresh clean, your cat may be suffering from a urinary tract infection. As such problems are quite painful your kitten might associate its litter box with pain or simply needs to pee more often and that is when you smell the cat’s urine all over the house.

    Changes in your day-to-day tasks may affect your cat’s litter box behaviour as well. Moving to a new home, new schedule at work or school are also a big change for your cat: a new born baby, another cat or pet, holidays etc. Each of those things impact your cat’s behaviour and it might react by urinating outside its box.
