Want to know about cat litter boxes?

Cat Litter Box - If you own a cat, you have to put up with having a litter box in your home. If you have a large home, you probably have somewhere out of the way to keep it, and it may not bother you very much. However, if you have a small place like I do, a cat litter box can be something that drives you nuts. I love my cats, but I do not love having to deal with the litter box. Though it might seem easy to scoop it a few times a day, which is not always something I can do. That’s not the only problem either, as they are other annoyances that come with it.

Because my place is so small, I have to keep our cat litter box in our bedroom. It’s not much fun having it in there, but there is really nowhere else I can put it. I could put it under the dining room table, but that just doesn’t seem very healthy to me. So the cat little box stays in our bedroom. Once in a while I forget to scoop it and we go out for the day. When we get home it is very obvious that they have been using it, and the smell is something that I have a hard time getting out of my room. It just makes a lot of extra work for me.

It seems my male cat has a sense of humor. I don’t know why he does this, but he does it every night. When I lie down to go to sleep, no matter what time it is, this is when he decides it’s time to use the cat litter box. Though this would not be a problem for most people, it is a huge problem for both my husband and me. We have a cat litter box that has a lid on the top of it so that the cats have privacy and so that we don’t have to look at the contents when we walk by. For some reason he scratches the top and sides of it when he is done, and he does this for five minutes.

Our cat litter box is made of plastic, and when he runs his nails along the side and the top it makes the most hideous noise you can imagine. I have tried to get him to stop doing this but I have not been successful. If I get upset and hiss so he walks out of the cat litter box, he will find somewhere else in the house to go. That is not an option, and that means that I have to put up with his noise. If I were to scare him out of the cat litter box when he does this I would have a far more annoying problem to deal with each day when I wake up. No thanks.
