What You Need to Know Before Buying a Cat Litter Box
by John on Apr 30, 2023
If you’re a cat owner, there are many things you need to know before buying a litter box. The first and most important thing is that not all types of litter boxes are created equal.
If you have just adopted a cat, knowing all that you need to know about the cat litter box is important in order to keep your cat healthy and happy.
There are many types of litter boxes on the market, from the most basic and cheapest model to more elaborate ones that come with special features.
Below is a list of things you need to consider before making your purchase:
The Size of the Litter Box
The size of the box will depend on the size of your cat. If you have a large cat, then you will need to buy a larger box. Conversely, if you have a small cat, then you can get away with buying a smaller box.
It’s important to get the right size because if the box is too small, your cat may not be able to move around in it and may start eliminating outside the box. The suggested size is one and a half times the length of your cat.
Our PULLNSCOOP cat litter box can accommodate large cats. The overall size of our box is 25.2 x 13.1 x 17.7 and it weighs around 13.2 lbs.
Because of this, you do not have to worry about buying another one in case your cat doesn’t fit in the box.
The Type of Cat Litter Box
There are two main types of litter boxes: the traditional/regular cat litter box and the self-cleaning cat litter box.
Regular or traditional cat litter boxes are the most common type of box and they are typically less expensive than self-cleaning litter boxes. This kind of litter box requires regular cleaning and scooping.
Self-cleaning litter boxes are becoming increasingly popular because they offer a convenient way to keep the litter box clean.
These types of boxes have sensors that automatically rake the waste into a separate compartment when the cat exits the box. Some self-cleaning litter boxes also have a timer that can be set to clean the litter box on a schedule.
However, the disadvantage of this is it may include risk and danger to your furry friend because this needs electricity to work.
PULLNSCOOP cat litter box is a combination of both traditional and self-cleaning cat litter boxes. This is the reason why we call it “semi-automatic. It has characteristics of a traditional box where it does not require electricity to function but it also has a semi self-cleaning feature.
This means that cat owners will just have to pull the handle and push it back so that the rake will sweep the excrement into the receptacle.
With this, you do not have to worry about scooping the waste every day. You can enjoy your stress-free life with your cat.
The Location of the Litter Box
The location of the litter box is important because you want to make sure it’s in a place where your cat feels comfortable. It should also be in a location that is convenient for you.
Some people like to keep the litter box in the bathroom, but this isn’t always possible depending on the layout of your home. Other popular locations include the laundry room, basement, or even a dedicated closet.
The most important thing is to make sure the litter box is in a quiet place where your cat won’t be disturbed.
The Type of Litter
There are many types of cat litter on the market, from traditional clay to more modern options like recycled newspaper or silica gel crystals.
Clay litter is the most common type of litter because it’s inexpensive and does a good job of absorbing odor. However, some cats don’t like the feel of clay on their paws and it can be messy.
Recycled newspaper litter is made from recycled paper that has been compressed into pellets. This type of litter is absorbent and biodegradable, but it can be more expensive than clay litter.
Silica gel crystals are a type of litter that is made from silicon dioxide. These crystals absorb odor and moisture, which helps to keep the litter box dry. However, they can be more expensive than other types of litter.
PULLNSCOOP cat litter box does not require much litter sand. Cat owners will just have to look for common clumping sand and it will already work with our product.
How Often Should You Change The Litter with PULLNSCOOP?
With the traditional cat litter box, the general rule of thumb is to change the litter once a week, but this will vary depending on how many cats you have and how often they use the litter box.
If you have multiple cats, then you may need to change the litter more often. If your cat(s) use the litter box multiple times a day, then you may also need to change it more frequently.
But with PULLNSCOOP, you will just have to clean the litter box every 2 to 6 weeks. As for the waste bin, you will just need to change it every 5 or 7 days.
Buying a proper litter box is an important investment for your feline buddies.
