Default How Often Do You Clean The Litterbox?

On average on how often do you clean the litterbox? For me I clean between 2-3 times per day between the boxes. Sometimes the cat will use both boxes and others they will just use one.

By clean do you mean just scooping or emptying completely? For me there's a huge difference!

Ya, there's a huge difference. I use pine litter with a 2 layer box. ET poop once a day, so scooping is once a day. Clear lower tray layed with plastic sheet and top up new litter once a week. Clear out everything and wash top box once a month.

Between 2and 3 times a day for scooping and about once a month I tear the boxes apart and soak them in bleach solution and rinse them well.

I scoop them when I get up in the morning and at night before bed.

It depends on the cat so I can't really vote.

Blacky does everything outside.

Blaze doesn't pee in his two litterboxes so I don't feel compelled to clean them daily. Newspaper on the wall gets changed, though...

For the cat in the garage I clean the litterbox twice daily, morning and night. I might scale back to once a day in a week or two after I can stop looking for disasters in there (he was just neutered and could - although unlikely - have worms).

I clean once a day for my permanent kitties (5 cats, 2 litter boxes, no accidents) and twice a day (morning and night at feeding time) for my fosters as most of them are kittens just learning to use a litter box and cleaner is much more inviting.

I scoop once a day and totally clean all 3 boxes every 2 weeks.

Minimum three times a day. But usually much more often than that, because if I am home and I hear a cat in the boxes, I just go down right away and scoop it out. And I always check them before I leave the house and when I first walk in. So yeah, lots of times. I didn't vote in the poll, since there is no choice for that.

Dump and scrub once a week.
