4. PICK AN OPEN LOCATION FOR THE LITTER BOX
While litter boxes should be located away from high traffic zones in a household, they should also be placed in well-ventilated locations. Under stair cupboards and small utility rooms with little ventilation will only exacerbate the odor problem. Small confined spaces also make it more difficult for the cat to use. Also, if you have more than one box, place them in different locations in the home. This works from an odor control point of view and also in multi-cat households where cats tend to ambush one another. Cats consider litter boxes lined up next to one another as one “big box” and can tend to try and control the area. So, give your cats litter box options.
