Cat Won't use the Litter box

Some cats can be so finicky. My Junia did not want to go into the new litter box. We thought .she might mess on the floor but she eventually used the liter box.

Cat Won't use the Litter box

I posted that I was getting a new litter box called the Omega Paw Roll N Clean Self Cleaning Litter Box, (Large) on another site. We had to get the large size because Junia is a really big cat.

So I got my litter box today and my son assembled it. The good news is Junia fits into it. The bad news is she is afraid to go in the box. It is going to take some time for her to get used to it I guess.

We had a black cat who was the same way. I think it took about 2 days before he would go into it.

Has anybody else had this problem? If so what did you do about it?

Litter box with a Hood

Before the litter box came we were worried because we didn't know if she would fit through the opening, (the litter box has a hood). We wanted one with a hood for two reasons. First of all we know a hood cuts down the odor.

However, the most important reason for getting a litter box with a hood is that the only place in the house to put a litter box is in the dining area of the kitchen. As you can guess that is just not appealing.

I am Proud of My Little Girl

Then Junia has never been in a hooded litter box so she was scared to go in. My son thought that she would start doing her business anywhere in the house which is something we just couldn't allow happen.

However, Junia is a very clean cat and she waited until she absolutely had to go to get into the litter box. I am proud of my pretty girl.

The best solution is to encourage a cat to do its business outside rather than inside.

Cats - as you know better than anyone - can be strange creatures. Ours goes out to do "little jobs" but always pops back indoors to do "big jobs", even if he then goes straight out again!

I'm not sure that's that's a good life for a cat. Cats always retain their wild side, and that means prowling the alleys and taking risks.
