Don’t rely on scented litter, room sprays or litter additives to control the odor in your cat’s litter box. She can detect a dirty litter box even with all the cover-ups. The best way to control odor is to keep the box scooped twice daily and thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis.
Be mindful of air freshening sprays, perfumes and other scents you use in the house as well. Cats have a very keen sense of smell and too much of a good thing can be offensive to them and may even cause respiratory issues.
For more information on cat behavior and training, refer to any of Pam’s books including Think Like a Cat. Books are available on our website, through your favorite online book retailer and at book stores everywhere.
