How much cat litter is the right amount? Let's dive in!
How Much is Too Much?
Ideally, the litter should be 2-3 inches deep in the box. But how can you tell if it's too much?
If your cat slips and slides in the box, you might be using too much litter.
Signs of Excess Litter
Traditional Scooping Litter Box
Most cats prefer 2-3 inches of litter. If they love to dig, maybe go up to 3-4 inches.
Issues with Improper Litter Use
Misusing cat litter can lead to odors, aversion, and other complications.
Generally, 2 to 3 inches of soft-scoopable litter is ideal. Watch your cat's behavior for hints.
The Right Amount
Regular cleaning and the right amount of litter ensure a happy cat. It's all worth the snuggles at the end of the day!
