Cats are cute, fluffy, and whatnot. But no matter how much we love them, dealing with their litter boxes can be a challenge. It is great that they know where to do their “business,” but they can send a wave of unpleasant smells through your house in the process. Luckily, there are a few things you can do that will help you deal with this issue.
Get the Proper-Sized Litter Box
Having a small litter box won’t do you any favors. The cat will have less space for her needs which might cause some mess around the box. Get the proper-size litter box in which your cat will feel comfy.
Clean the Litter Box Frequently
The easiest way to ensure there is no litter box smell contaminating your house is to frequently clean the litter box. Think about the daily cleanup and even more frequently if needed.
Change the Litter Often
The litter should be changed once a week at least. This includes getting a new litter all the way through and not only adding what’s missing.
Find the Right Spot for the Litter Box
Sometimes the litter box smell can be quantified if the litter box itself is placed in the wrong room. Make sure to locate the litter box somewhere vented, so the smell can escape.
Use Tea Leaves or Baking Soda
Mixing tea leaves with the litter will help absorb the unpleasant smell. Baking soda will do the same trick if you add it to the bottom of the box.
