3 Ways to Clean a Litter Box - wikiHow
My husband and I have been living with Siamese for 25 years now, and just love the photos of closed kitty litter boxes. They mostly show Siamese using them. I could never get mine to use a closed box, they mainly wanted to sleep inside, not poop. My Siamese have the need to bury not only their poop, but the wall and anything else that's within reach. It sometimes takes them 10 minutes to complete their duty. And don't get caught watching, that's a no no! We presently have 3 kitties, two females, and one male, and only two litter boxes. One at each end of the house. This works well for us. Once everyone determined their own territory, and stopped chasing each other out of the "box". and much screaming on my husband and my part. They all adjusted to just two. So, it all depends on the household and the animals. I do clean their boxes every day and wash it out once a month, and replace once a year. If you have a huge cat, try using a storage box instead of a littler box, put the lid under it to catch the dropped litter, you can get them in really big sizes and the cats can't throw the litter out so easily. And a small throw rug in front that catches what falls off their feet. ALL litter sticks to cat's feet no matter what the a litter company says. And if you have tile floors, it's yukkie to step on.
