    Poop issues - help!

    I've definitely posted about this before but here I am once again with the same problem. My bambino Luna will only poop outside of the litter box.

    Litter to Breeze system

    Hi guys! My brother has 2 DSH that are about 3 years old and he recently transitioned from traditional litter box to the tidy cats breeze system. My 12 week old sphynx was there visiting and he used the breeze box with no problem, did #1 and #2 in it. So, being annoyed with litter (tidy cats...

Do you just scoop and scoop until the...

    Litter tray conundrum

    We’re looking into getting another litter tray for our 2 boys but we live in a really small apartment so finding another suitable place has been an issue.

    In the last 2 weeks, I have gradually switched Nuru's food from Blue Basics to Royal Canin Sensitive Digestion. His stools have been much firmer and I have noticed that he is more energetic. I am happy with his progress so far but he remains struggling with both constipation and diarrhea. In...

    Terrible Surprise

    I thought Tut was constipated because I hadn't seen him use the litter box in 2 days but what happened was he started USING THE BASEMENT AS HIS LITTER BOX! :rage: I usually let him down there (only if i am home) thinking he is just running around and climbing but I won't be doing that anymore...

    Question--metal litter box

    so Astrid plastic box smells DISGUSTING. So that's being tossed lol but I was thinking a metal one would work better to keep clean and the metal wouldn't absorb the smell. Do any of you guys have one or know where to get one?? Or where to get big baking pans that have sides??

    I think I posted asking about litter suggestions ages ago, but I am looking to switch.

Right now I use World's Best Cat Litter. I...
