Cat Enclosure House Outdoors

Remember that any cat living in an outdoor or indoor cat enclosure must have constant access to a cat litter box. This arrangement serves the same purpose as a toilet for humans. It should be cleaned daily and changed often (depending on the type of litter—clumping litter stays cleaner longer, but has been reported to cause health problems in some cats. There are a number of problems that can arise involving your cat's use of its litter tray. One thing important to remember is that like dogs during moments of excitement or other strong emotions, a cat's anal sac may discharge, releasing a foul-smelling brown liquid. Anal irritation, possibly shown by the cat rubbing its bottom on the floor and frequent licking of the area, can be a sign that the cat's anal sacs are not being ecat housemptied when waste passes. Litterboxes may pose a risk of toxoplasmosis transmission to susceptible pregnant women and immuno-compromised individuals. Transmission risk may be reduced by daily litterbox cleaning as toxo needs more than one days life to become ineffective. One sure sign of trouble is if your cat is defecating outside of its normal location or kitty litter tray. If this happens you should take it immediately to a veterinarian. The reason for this is that if a cat experiences pain during urination/defecation, it may associate that pain with the litterbox. If no physical problem is found, then a good feline behaviorist (find one with a veterinary degree, preferably) can often cure even the most recalcitrant cat. Another cause of problems is with the smell of a kitty litter tray. Not only do humans find the strong pungent odors offensive but so do cats. If you cat refuses to use the litter box it is possible that it needs to be changed more often or you might need to use some kind of deodorizer.
