Litter trays are accepted as a means of toilet training your kitten or new cat in the home,
however there are some things you should be aware of to prevent litter trays from
becoming hygiene hazards.
Types of trays and litter vary, so do your research or ask your vet or retailer which is the
best for your cat. There are models with a hooded lid that prevent excess mess caused by
your cats natural instinct to tread its litter, and a hooded litter tray provides your cat with
a safe and secure place to use the toilet, and provides privacy. However the hood also
retains odors and may discourage cats from entering the tray to use it. Litter trays with
wide internal lips can be effective at containing litter but older cats can struggle to cross
the wide lip.
The most advanced and convenient design of litter trays are the electronic, fully
automatic types (self cleaning litter boxes). These use crystal-infused litter to absorb urine
and senses when your cat has used it. Then, a stainless steel scoop sweeps the waste into
an enclosed compartment, ensuring there is no visual mess or smell and making
it easy to change and keep clean.
Whichever you decide is suitable for your cat’s needs, keep a regular check on its
condition and contents and this will help to keep your home fresh and clean, and your cat
