Are you a new cat owner or thinking of getting a cat? You will need to get some basics in order to create a healthy and homely environment for your new friend. A cat litter box is one of those basics. A cat litter box kit has all necessary tools included like the litter itself, a scoop, a cat pad and more.
Or maybe you just want to get a cat litter box kit system that provides you with everything you need to have around a cat litter box. Let’s take a look at what a cat litter box kit is offering.
After writing about Cat Litter Boxes it is time to speak about cat litter itself. According to a research that I read once cats prefer fine-grained litters. Well, that’s exactly what most of the available cat litters are.
There are different types of cat litter with different advantages and disadvantages. I will also speak about how to handle outdoor cats that prefer dirt.
Cats are clean animals, very clean. They groom themselves constantly, not only when they go to the cat litter box. But there it is very obvious that cats want to be clean. They bury their waste with litter and afterwards they clean themselves. Continuous grooming is in their nature. A research found that cats groom themselves about 50% of their waking time. Fascinating, isn’t it.
Do you know why cats clean themselves so fastidiously? It’s their instinct. Wild cats want to remove all smell of food or waste from their body and fur. They do so after eating, after pooping and even before going to sleep. It’s their natural instinct to keep them safe from being smelled and detected by other predators. And you help your little cat friend by providing a clean big or small cat litter box.
