Choosing the Right Litterbox for Your Cat

Q: I’m getting a kitten. What kind of litter box should I get?  A: Making the right litter box choice is more than just appearance. It plays an important role in cat behavior and house-soiling prevention. Size Matters Choose a larger box. Cats prefer a spacious area for digging and covering. Ensure the box can comfortably accommodate your cat’s size, ideally 1 1/2 times the length of the cat from nose to base of the tail. Cats should be able to turn around in the box without touching the sides. Litter Depth and Type: Cats have a natural digging behavior.
