It is true that if there is an odor in a cat-owning home, it is usually caused by the cat's feces and urine.
However, with proper handling, a cat home can also have a fresh and clean environment.
First, the choice of cat litter box
Cat litter boxes are generally divided into two types: "open" and "closed". And each has its own advantages.
Open type: The open design is more in line with the nature of cats living in the wild, the smell is easy to disperse and easy to clean.
Closed: closed space to give cats can hide space, more reassuring to cats, and the cat litter is not easy to bring out, more easy to keep clean.
If you don't like the smell emitted into the room, you can choose a semi-enclosed or fully enclosed litter box, but you may encounter a stronger odor attack when scooping.
No matter which litter box is chosen, it should be large enough for the cat to turn around easily inside, and it needs to be shoveled diligently, otherwise the cat may choose to poop outside because the litter box is too small or too dirty.
Second, the choice of cat litter
When choosing cat litter, we generally consider particle size, dust, odor, water absorption, sticky bottom, etc. If you don't like odor at home, you can make odor elimination a priority, and activated carbon and tofu sand are good choices. In addition, you can also match the odor eliminating cat litter partner or deodorant beads
However, whether it is cat litter or another odor elimination product, it is not recommended to choose too strong aroma, most cats do not like too much scent added to the cat litter, especially citrus and other fruit fragrance. If you buy the wrong one, your cat may refuse to go to the litter box.
In addition, the cat litter needs to be thoroughly changed every 1-2 weeks, and each time the sand is shoveled, the urine ball and small particles of poo should be shoveled clean.
Third, environmental cleaning
Families with cats should also pay attention to environmental cleaning and disinfection.
In addition to the smell of urine and feces, cat hair is also another major problem that plagues cat slaves. Cats are losing their hair all year round, and cat owners are living a life of cat hair
The vacuum cleaner has a very good cleaning effect on the floor and smooth table, which is a must for the cat family.
Families with cats must pay attention to the issue of disinfection. Regular and comprehensive disinfection can prevent the growth of bacteria and also kill
Fourth, the cat's own cleanliness
After making good environmental hygiene, the cat's personal hygiene should not be spared. Although cats have a strong ability to clean themselves, they do not smell bad, and even have a good "cat smell", but we still need to insist on brushing the cat's teeth.
In addition, if you have the habit of putting your cat to bed, you can have a wet tissue or wet towel to wipe your cat's body and feet every day.
Fifth. About cat food
It is true that there are many cats that eat different cat food and the taste of the poop is very different, but do not make recommendations for cat food brands because there is no universality.
Some cats eat A cat food poop will be more smelly, but some cats will not, because the intestinal flora of each cat is different.
So, what specific cat food to eat, the owner needs to change to try!
