Don't Make These Kitty Litter Box Mistakes!

You know we enjoying sharing healthy pet tips from one of our favorite holistic veterinarians, Dr. Karen Becker, and today we thought these litter box strategies would help you start spring with a healthier, happier cat and a tidier home.

  A healthier, happier cat? Now you're talkin' my language—MEOW!

First, don't fix what ain't broken: If your kitty is using his or her litter box like a pro, don't change a thing! Just keep the box scrupulously clean, and keep an eye out for any changes in stool or urine or deviations from her regular litter box use.

Dr. Becker also reviews the various types of cat litter on the market and her opinion of their pros and cons. She advises against scented litters or litter with odor control additives, because cats don't seem to like them, and since cats clean themselves so much, they can ingest the added chemicals over time. Parental Unit transitioned me to a corn litter many years ago, and I've been a happy kitty ever since.

If you're a part of your cat's staff, let us know what type of litter you've chosen and how it's working. And if your cat is having "litter box" issues, check out "The Happy Litter Box", a great resource for everything concerning cats and their "bathrooms".

Well, that's enough advice for me...I'll think I'm ready for a snooze...
