Importance of Scooping Litter Boxes
Litter Boxes are Great
While you might have a cat and have a litter box that states the litter will last for months at a time you will still want to scoop out the litter on a regular basis. I know that for some people they will not even think about the reasons that they need to scoop out the litter box, but here are some of the reasons that I have found why you will want to scoop out your litter box on a regular basis.
The first reason why you will want to scoop out your litter box on a regular basis is that from my experience even if the litter states that it will lock in odors and other smells that works only for so long. Like all things that are consumable or disposable they can only do so much before the ingredients stop working. So you will want to scoop out your litter box on a regular basis if for no other reason than to help control the smell that can come out of your litter box at any point in time. I know for mine even though I use cat litter that controls the scent very well if I do not scoop it out on a regular basis the smell does get out of hand.
The second reason why you will want to scoop out your litter box on a regular basis is if you have dogs they might decide one day when you are not looking to see if they are going to be able to find a treat in the litter box. I know that one of my dogs tried to make this into a nightly ritual when I was sleeping. However, when I scoop out the litter boxes on a regular basis they are not able to get the treats out of the litter box because I have it cleaned up.
The third reason that you will want to scoop out your litter boxes on a regular basis is because your cat will benefit from having the litter being fresher and not having to dig through the piles that they have already left. Which if they have to dig through the old piles you will probably realize that it is not the healthiest option for them.
Scooping out your cat litter boxes on a regular basis is very important. I know that the reasons of scooping out your litter box that I have listed are great and you will probably find some other reasons why you will want to scoop out litter box as well. I know that for me my cats are always happier when the litter boxes get scooped out on a regular basis.
