There are many reasons we love our cats, from their daily furry affection to the entertainment they provide, but there is often a big downside: scooping smelly litter boxes.
With our furry friends visiting their litter box many times daily, we can spend a large amount of time scooping in a bid to keep nasty odours under control and our homes smelling fresh. But even with regular cleaning, litter boxes can annoyingly still have a strong smell.
This is partly down to the amount of ammonia released as cat urine is more concentrated than that of many other pets, including dogs, so it’s worth encouraging cats to drink as much as possible to help to dilute their urine.(Source)
One straightforward way to help reduce odours is to consider switching your cat’s food as the smell of their waste can be affected by what they eat. For instance, diets that are higher in protein can cause much more odoriferous stools. Kitten food in particular contains higher protein quantities to help young cats develop so once they have reached their first birthday ensure cats are weaned onto a lower-protein adult diet.(Source)
Another thing to think about is changing litter tray as the type of tray and litter lining can have a massive effect on smells. A fantastic way for to combat both odours and never-ending tray maintenance is to invest in an automatic litter box. One of the best products to consider is the new ScoopFree™ Self-Cleaning Litter Box from PetSafe® Brand.
With an RRP starting at £168.99, it’s the only self-cleaning litter box that uses disposable litter trays to provide hands-off convenience and a clean, fresh-smell. It works by using an automatic rake system that will sweep your cats’ waste into a covered compartment 20 minutes after the box is used. Safety sensors detect when your cat leaves the box, which starts the timer for the automatic cleaning cycle.
The box uses premium crystal litter which provides five times better odour control than traditional clumping litter and being 99% dust-free, it helps keep floors clean as it doesn’t stick to cats’ paws. Packed in a convenient disposable litter tray with leak-proof plastic lining, each replacement tray lasts up to 30 days (based on one cat).
Additional great features of the ScoopFree™ are its health counter that tracks how many times your furry feline has used the box, helping to alert you of possible health issues. Plus it has a powerful, yet quiet motor and comes with a power adaptor with a 1.8 m cord.
PetSafe® Brand also offers a ScoopFree™ Covered Self-Cleaning Litter Box model with an RRP starting at £197.99 that boasts a Privacy Cover that gives cats extra privacy while keeping the litter properly contained.
