Dogs, cats, and other pets can enrich our lives, by sharing companionship, love and entertainment with those who love them. Cats are favored by many people who are looking to adopt a pet because they are less demanding of time and space, making it easier to include them in a hectic lifestyle.
This does not let cat owners out of their responsibility for proper training and maintenance of their cat. Despite the independent nature of cats, several house rules need to be defined to ensure that all of those living in the house will be healthy and well.
It’s especially important to train your cat where to relieve himself. It is a health hazard for both humans and cats to live in a house covered with urine and/or feces. It’s also messy and unsanitary. Cats may urinate to mark their territory indoors or to let you know when you’re in their bad graces. However, the owner needs to stop this behavior as urine and feces can cause both the humans and cats living in the house to become ill.
For most people, the reasons for cat house training are obvious. No one prefers to spend time in a space smelling of cat urine. The smell can be strong to the point of overwhelming. Although treatments exist to remove the odor from carpeting and bedding, it is better to avoid dealing with the problem.
Most cats can be easily house trained. As a owner, you must identify and maintain the area where your cat will relieve themselves. Cat house training may seem difficult, but because cats prefer a clean environment without feces or urine where they sleep or eat it is not as hard as you might think.
Any cat owner, with a little patience can achieve successful training. After you purchase a litter box, you need to fill it with clumping kitty litter or special crystal granules designed for that purpose. After each meal and whenever he or she seems ready to eliminate, you need to lift and place the cat in the litter box.
It is a cats instinct to naturally cover up their bodily excretions by digging in dirt or litter. Cat house training is utilized by making your cat feel praised, and reinforcing the positive aspects when they use the indoor litter box correctly.
