Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I clean my cat’s litter box?

Your cat’s litter box should be scooped daily. How often you need to clean out the litter box depends on the type of litter box you use and how many cats you have. Provided you scoop daily, twice per week may be enough with clay litter and two to three weeks with scoopable litter—but if you notice an odour or that the litter is wet, you may need to change it more frequently. Cats have a much stronger sense of smell than humans so avoid using harsh chemicals or strong-scented cleaners on the litter box—they may cause your cat to do its business elsewhere. Washing with soap and water is usually sufficient. Bleach can be used but be sure to rinse the box thoroughly.
