well away from where your pet eats, in a quiet and accessible spot. Choose the litter tray carefully. Some cats prefer a covered version for privacy, but others don’t. Either way, the tray needs to be big enough for your pet to be able to turn around easily. Don’t forget that older cats suffering from arthritis will find it difficult to jump into a high-sided tray. Ensure you have enough trays for the number of cats you keep. The rule of thumb is one tray per cat, plus one. The ideal is for your pet to be able to use one for urinating and the other for defecating. If you live in a small flat, opt for a smaller second tray.
If your pet swallows a caustic substance don’t attempt first aid. Call the vet, give the name of the product and follow
the vet’s advice.
