Hi folks...


1)Do two cats need two litter boxes, or will once be fine?

2)Also, do they like hooded ones?


(I realize that they must be kept immaculately clean.)

Thanks
Val

It is best to have one box per cat. Cats also prefer the fine-grained unscented litters (scoopable). Many cats refuse to use covered boxes, but many cats prefer them! Try getting one uncovered box and one that is covered and see which one is used the most!

So, um, Val,


Does this mean you've decided on taking both furbabies???????:eyebrows Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!


The rule of thumb is one box per cat. I have all covered ones because my oldest cat, Mollie Rose, digs to China and all my boxes are in closets.

I'm glad you're taking both. You'll never regret it.

Good luck and we want pictures!!!!!!

It really depends on the cats. When I had just 2 cats they shared one box with no problems. Then I upped it to two when we had 3. Now I have 11 and 6 boxes through the house. I guess I am very lucky because every one of them has a hood and nobody has peed or pooped outside the box.

Sandi and all.....

Thank you.
But I have decided on only one cat.

Please refer to my posting in The Cat Lounge.
I don't know how to put the link in here.

No Donna, I thank you for your advice.,


You posted it before we came to a decision. When I logged on earlier, I posted the decision. Several of you nice people had already given me advice.
