Hello all Due to medical problems(cancer) I need to leave my home for a while. I can't leave my cat inside my house so I wanted to make a cat patio, or cat cage, next to the garage. The cat will be in the garage and have a pet door to go outise to the cage. I will have someone looking in on her and feed her and my dog. And will have automatic feeder as well as watering. But my dilemma comes to my cats bathroom needs. This person will look after the cat but can't clean her cat box so I wanted to know how much ground would my cat need so she can do her business and it not be a problem. Would 50 square meters of ground be sufficient? Would grass be fine? Grass and have a sand pit? I may be gone 3 or 4 months. All depends on recovery. My other alternative is to give her up to a shelter. But don't really want to do that. Would appreciate any advice.
