NEGLECTING LITTER BOXES
Some cat owners may clean their cat's litter box only weekly, or even less frequently. Think about how gross that is. Imagine if you flushed your toilet only once a week, and also, you had to step in the toilet in order to use it. That’s what life is like for a cat whose owner doesn’t clean its litter box out properly at least once a day. Not only is having to use a dirty litter box extremely unpleasant for cats, but it’s also unhealthy for everyone in the cat’s home, as the animal tracks the mess they stepped in everywhere they go. Remember not only to sift the litter box every day, but also change the litter entirely once per week. Be sure to wash the box itself during weekly litter changes.
