Denver Dumb Friends League: Starting out right with your Cat and the Litterbox


February 9, 2021

Most cats have a specific preference about where they want to eliminate. By following the suggestions outlined in this handout, you’ll be able to start off on the right foot with your new cat.

Most people are inclined to place the litterbox in an out-of-the-way spot in order to minimize odor and loose particles of cat litter in the house. Often, the litterbox ends up in the basement, sometimes next to an appliance and/or on a cold cement floor. This type of location can be undesirable from your cat’s point of view for several reasons.

Research has shown that most cats prefer fine-grained litters, presumably because they have a softer
feel.

Read the handout for further information on cats & litterboxes.
