Did you know that the #1 reason that cats are returned to the shelter is improper use of or refusal to use the litterbox? It’s sad, but true. Luckily, it’s also avoidable. If your cat is having litter-training trouble, don’t despair. There are many resources out there to help. If you’re thinking of adopting a cat, be proactive and learn the right way to litter train and how to troubleshoot any little bumps in the road.
Our friends at Tidy Cats want to help. They’ve put together a great collection of articles and tips to ensure successful litterbox training and, by extension, a successful adoption.
