As soon as a fluffy pet appears in the house, you need to think about a cat litter box. Cats are clean and adapt quickly to certain objects, so their latrine should be kept clean and comfortable.
There is a closed and open type cat toilet, different depths, sizes and shapes (rectangular, angular, oval).
The open type design (tray) is the most common. It is comfortable and usually liked by animals. When choosing, you need to pay attention to the spaciousness of the model so that the cat can fit entirely and do its business “without a miss.”
The depth of the product is also of great importance: high sides serve as an obstacle to spreading the tray filler. A genetic feature of cats is to bury their excrement. If there is not enough filler, then the animal will stain the floors and walls.
It is best to use a closed cat litter box, not an open one. It has significant advantages:
- provides psychologicalcomfort of the pet, since the latter is invisible to others;
- does not allow litter to be thrown outward;
- don't let the cat miss the tray;
- eliminates unpleasant odor;
- solves the aesthetic side of the issue by hiding the contents of the design from the views of others.
True, along with the pluses, a large closed toilet for cats has some disadvantages. For example, high sides and a high door are not suitable for small kittens: it is inconvenient for them to climb inside. But this is easy to fix by buying a small tray for the baby. When he grows up to adolescence, it is recommended to purchase an enclosed toilet for big cats and cats.
Designer's idea does not stand still, but is constantly progressing. This applies even to simple designs for pets. For example, especially for the owners of Barsikov and Murok, who for a number of reasons are late at work and cannot clean the pet's latrine in time, bio-toilets and accessories for them have been developed.
Bio - the same closed toilet for a cat, only more advanced. It has several additional features to ensure maximum cleanliness of the animal after visiting the toilet and the cleanliness of the structure itself: carbon filter, absorbent wipes, paw bridges. Some models provide for automatic removal of excrement and filling with new filler. Modernstructures are made in such a way that they can function normally without human intervention for a long time.
A filler is needed for a latrine. It is believed that sand and pieces of newspaper are the most natural filler material. But sand and wet paper stuck to the paws of the animal, the pet will spread throughout the apartment or house. The best filler is a special one that has good absorbent qualities and completely removes odor. By the way, it also serves for a long time, so it is best to pour special fillers into the closed and open toilet for a cat. Then your pussy will always have clean paws, and the toilet will be clean and tidy.
