Mostly twice a day but sometimes more. It depends on if someone is really "stinking up the place." They have a habit of going right after I just cleaned the litter box as well. I just don't like the thought of them having to be in a dirty box.

As a side note: I have a really fast system. I buy these packs of 50 vinyl gloves and tiny plastic bags. When I get ready to clean, I put on the glove and scoop away. When I'm done, the glove goes in the bag and the bag goes in the garage and there is no mess. I don't have to worry about where to keep a dirty scooper.

I don't think my cat would go if there's already something in the box (she sniffs and walks away), so I pretty much scoop it out every time she uses it, usually about 3 times a day. I dump and clean it about once a month.

Dump and scrub once a week.

as above ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

scoop the poop every day and put fresh litter every 2-3 days depending on the stinky pee & i use cat san litter


also I have found litter bags are ineffective and just get loads of holes in them don't know why I even bothered with them & a good scrub with baby bottle sanitizer cleans up the tray real good.

I noticed ET sniffed the whole box 1st before using. Each time before going into his box, he will meow real loudly "I'm gonna poop", then immediately after finishing, he will meow real loudly again "I have finished, please clean up", lol...Funny, if he pee, he doesn't meow at all. The way he meow, I know he's gonna do his big business.

Once a day usually. I've skipped days when I'm tired and it doesn't really get too bad.

I don't empty it and clean the entire box very often though. I usually do it every 3 months or so.

I use World's Best Multi-Cat and it works very well for me. Some people hate it. Some people love it. I fall in the latter group.

We have so many litter boxes that there is never very much to clean in each one. The least popular box often doesn't have anything in it.

I clean it at least 3 times a day, but I change it completely every second - third day.

You should be scooping pee too, you shouldn't leave the pee in the litter box. Pee won't stink if it isn't left in the box. And..poor kitty, how can she even dig? Leaving the pee is going to cause litter box avoidance problems sooner or later.
