So this is going to be a few questions about litter boxes... Feel free to answer one or all
1. What kind of litter do you use? I used FelinePine for the first few weeks of having my kitties because that is what the adoption center used. I realized it was way too hard to clean the feline pine so I slowly switched them to Tidy Cats Clump-able litter. Am I an awful person for switching what the cats used because I am too lazy to clean? They seem to like the new litter and it keeps my apartment smelling much better, plus I want to clean it more often because it only takes a few mins, vs 1/2 an hour which is what it took with the feline pine.
2. Does anyone have a problem with their cats "playing" in the litter box? Sometimes Ziggy (5mo) will go in there and just sit, then shove the litter around, shake her bum like she wants to play and jump out spraying litter everywhere. I thought it was cute at first, but now it is just a mess. She does it about once a day, if I had to guess from how much I have to sweep. Can I do something to stop her from "playing" in the box or does she maybe have something wrong with her medically?
3. How often do your cats use the box? I have two boxes and I have
to sift them out every day or the cats wont use the box. Ziggy (5mo) seems to use the box at least 6 times a day (but those could include times where she is just "playing" in the box), where as Moosey uses it about 4 times a day. Is that too much? Also, is it weird that they use one box more than the other?
I have never had a cat that I own myself, so although I have had about 5-6 cats in my life (not including the copious amount of stray cats that used to live in my grandma's garage for several years), I have never really paid attention to this kind of stuff. I know this post was long, so feel free to skip over it or just answer one question.
