Cat Litter

How frequently do you change you the litter in your pet’s cat litter box?
Litter boxes can be the bane of existence for most indoor cat owners but they are necessary and they fulfill a very important purpose. Something that has oft been spoken about and is still the question that haunts many cat litter box owners is how often the cat litter should be changed. I have two cats and they both use the litter box, so I clean out the box daily but only change the litter every second day.

The trick with a cat litter box is that you preferably want to get it cleaned out and filled with fresh litter before it starts to smell. My two cats do not get outside at all, and so they are both very reliant on using the cat litter box, if your cat uses the cat litter box less, or infrequently, then you may be able to get away with cleaning it out daily and changing the cat litter less frequently, if this is the case then your better option may be just to put less litter in the box and to still change it every two or three days.
