Zabava Russian Blue cat

LITTER BOX It is very simple to train a cat to use a litter box. Provide an adequate size box (at least 2’x1’, 6” deep) filled with cat litter and their natural instinct will take care of the rest. The box should be in a quite private place, should be cleaned daily and the litter should be changed at least once a week. It is better to use clay, pine pellets or any other none clumping litter for kittens as it can be lethal if swallowed. The clumping sand can stick to their legs and make their movements difficult. It is important to switch to clumping, non-scented litter for an adult cat as they seem to prefer it. This may avoid some unpleasant litter box problems in the future. When making a switch, insure to keep both, old and new available at first. Zabava prefers non-scented clay litter for the kittens and Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat clumping litter for the adults.
