Tips for Multi-cat homes

If you have multiple cats most experts recommend having one litter box per cat plus one extra. So for 3 cats you should have 4 litter boxes. If your cat is having litter box issues try setting up an additional litter box, change the location ( to the spot where they are going outside of the current litter box), or adjust the size of the box, and/or type of litter used. Some cats may prefer a sand or gravel type over the larger pellets, or an open box rather than one with a lid. If you are not sure which type they prefer set up a few different options and see which one is the most ‘popular’. Check with your vet if problems persist because bad litter habits could be due to an illness or other health problems.
