Cat owners

How many cats do you have and how often to you scoop your litter box(es)? How often to you change the litter completely?

We have 5 cats (4 inside, one that comes in but mostly stays out) and I scoop twice to three times a day and change the litter weekly unless it gets really smelly and funky before then. Plus I use some of the litter box deodorizing stuff at least once a day when I scoop it.

  • We have 1 cat, I scoop everyday to every other day, just depending on how bad it is. And I change the bag every 2 weeks.

  • i have a very picky cat--its scooped everyday sometimes twice a day because if he has pooped he will not use it again untill it is scooped again...but in his defense he is 28 pounds and i think the litter box is a little small for him

  • We have 4 cats . I do not use scoopable litter so the boxes are changed about twice a day, less perhaps when the weather is good enough for them to spend much time outside .

  • We have two cats. We check daily but they're usually pretty good and only need to be scooped every other day. We change the litter and wash out the bin every other week, depending on necessity, really. I always use deodorizer though, and when I'm out, I use baking soda. =)
