How many litterboxes do you have?

How many litterboxes do you have?

I have one cat and one litterbox.

I've been wondering if she needs a second one? She hasn't had any problems; I was just wondering if I'm supposed to have two. Our place is pretty small though, I'm not sure where I would put it!

I have two cats and four boxes. I probably only need three, but I don't clean them as often as I should. I think that as long as your kitty isn't having problems one is fine, but if she has an accident, another box would be my first suggestion.

Four cats, three boxes. The one in the girls' room doesn't get used as much since mostly only sleeping is going on in there. In fact, when they get up they run out and use the one in the dining room.

I know the "rule" is one for each kitty and one extra, but seriously? Five boxes? I'd need to sell my bed to make room. Plus, I scoop each one at least twice a day.

Hehe, five boxes does seem like a lot of boxes to scoop.

Thanks for the replies, it's good to know how other people do things. I think I'll take your advice My3babies, and stick to one for now since she's not having any problems.

When it was just me and Cinderella, I only had one.

i have one cat and one box. The box is scooped after every time Toby uses it as he wont use a dirty litter box. But I've never had a problem with only one box. Maybe two would stop me having to scoop quite so often but - its second nature to me now

only 4 but two of them have some rather quirky litterbox/privacy issues. I have plenty of space and 2 rooms dedicated to only litterboxes/storage so I try to make them as comfortable as possible.

I had one cat and one box until this past weekend. We discovered "somebody" had peed on a throw rug in the basement. Now, I'm not sure that's Murphy, since he has been an excellent litterbox-user since arriving on March 9. I'm wondering if it's possible that it's left over from Rookie, because it's VERY much like something she would have done. But just to be safe, I added another litterbox in that area (this time in the bathtub, which turns out to be a great litterbox place if there's no one using it), and he has used it a lot. So I guess we're a 2-litterbox family. Sigh.
