Cats are known to be independent and very clean animals. Considering that they are also quite sociable, there is generally a tendency to adopt even more than one. But when the second cat arrives, here is the crucial question: two cats can share the litter box?
Today we will find out the answer to this question and we will also try to understand what the behavior of our cats depends on.
How many litter boxes do you need for a single cat?
There are two questions which are often posed to feline behavior experts. The first concerns the methods to accustom the cat to the litter box, the second instead concerns the quantity of litter boxes to keep at home.
Here, apparently the correct answer is: a number equal to number of cats plus one. This means that if we have a cat we will need two litter boxes, if we have two we will need three and so on.
An adequate number of litter boxes in the home is essential to prevent behavioral problems, such as urination or defecation outside the litter box, and even veterinary problems such as feline idiopathic cystitis.
Territoriality and privacy
Therefore it is unthinkable that two cats can share a litter box. This is because cats are strongly territorial animals and anchored to their "possessions", including litter. If you use only one litter box for two cats you will find that one of them urinates or defecates outside the litter box.
Having one more also serves to prevent one from invading the other's litter: it is better to offer one more option than to find yourself cleaning needs made on the floor, parquet or carpet.
The right cat litter boxes
The type of litter you choose is also very important. The litter boxes should be different and not have an excessive scent. For this reason one must choose at least two types of litter that both cats will like.
It would even be better to take two types of sands that appeal to only one cat and the other, so that the boundaries are even clearer. For the third litter box (remember the even number + 1 rule) a more neutral and fine-grained sand will do.
If you don't know which type of litter to choose, remember that there are also automatic litter boxes, which are among the most innovative and popular options of the moment. Their main advantage is that they allow you to schedule them to do up to four cleanings a day.
With three automatic litter boxes you can be on the safe side, because even in the event of a "field invasion" the needles will be eliminated in a short period of time.
