Importance of a cat litter box;
While it’s also important to put these other factors into consideration, it’s from the cat’s litter box where we learn the most about the newly acquired family member. For instance, if you found that the litter box is as clean as you left it two days ago, that should tell you that your friend didn’t like her ‘elimination place,’ or he/she needs some training on how to use it. Again, it’s from the cat’s litter box that you learn whether you need to book an appointment with the veterinary and how soon.
