It is known that from the fourth week of life the cat is very careful where it solves its physiological needs. It is a sacred ritual that has come for thousands of years and has been transmitted instinctively to cats.
It has nothing to do with education. If the litter is in the cat’s reach, it will use it. However, there are situations where my cat refuses to use the litter.
In this post I will consider possible causes why my cat refuses to use the litter.
When you find that the sand is clean and other parts of the house come with odd odors, you have to ask questions about the cat. She has very good reasons to avoid the litter.
See my post here.
Intimacy plays an essential role in the cat. She is a proud pride, an innate hunter who hides her traces. Thanks to this capacity, he survived for thousands of years. Let’s give him the right to privacy when he focuses on his physiological needs. And the silence that must follow their disappearance.
Make her unseen. If we think a little, we will find the ideal place to place bedding. So, the need for intimidation of the cat solved. Intimacy plays an essential role in the cat. She is a proud pride, an innate hunter who hides her traces.
Thanks to this capacity, he survived for thousands of years. Let’s give him the right to privacy when he focuses on his physiological needs. And the silence that must follow their disappearance. Make her unseen. If we think a little, we will find the ideal place to place bedding.
It is knows that if we compare the smell with a cat, we have the following result: ours is a stamp, a cat like a handkerchief. The cat is 2 times closer to the source of the smell. The cat wants that whenever he uses the bedding to be clean. Sand to be dry. If these conditions are not met, dig up to find what they are looking for.
Or elsewhere. Neither we nor the cat wants to feel the bad smell of garbage. So we can make someone who does not know it’s a garbage in the room, he does not even know. How? Keeping garbage clean. So the cat will not have any problems.
Changing the type of sand
Cats do not change their habits very simply. If we change bedding, the cat may refuse to use it. The reasons are: the new sand is of inferior quality, has a tougher texture, smells more unpleasant. It is unpleasant for cats to pass it. Or he does not like to inhale dust
Or her legs irritated when she digs. Or, he was disturbed by the odor of the smell of sand. Before changing the litter type, think about the possibility that your cat will not use it. You better leave the sand he loves.
She said bedding is growing with the cat. We have to try several sheets until we find the right size. Small cats do not have to climb to the sand. Big cats should not cause trouble with a small rifle when they are chickens. The big cat can overturn a small rifle, grabbing the contents. Worse, it may have moments of claustrophobia. In conclusion, choose a bed suitable for the size of the cat.
Usually, when we have more cats, we must have a litter for each.
If we have more cats in the house, there is also a territorial and social hierarchy. It also counts the individuality of each cat. So we have a challenge with the organization of the toilet. I helped each cat’s desire to have a garbage. With patience, regular cleaning and careful observation of cat behavior, we can figure out how we can solve all the problems.
If we have solitary and aggressive cats, it is more than likely to have mild and tolerant cats. If we immediately respond to tensions and arrange personalities that respect space, we will enjoy the existence of cats in our house.

Many cat lovers, when they have guests, move their bedding from their usual place. Wrong! This gives a sense of confusion and insecurity for our cat. The new place is not necessarily better for the cat. He could interpret this movement as a kind of punishment. Or a personal affront.
The cat associates everything with the surrounding space. If her bed moved, suffers, she does not feel loved. It is a challenge for respect and self-confidence. After all, guests come and go, the cat stays. Let’s not allow some insignificant things to intervene between the cat and us. Let’s leave the bed in his place.
Penalty for cats
If the cat catches in the sand when the cat does not use the bedding or we use it, the cat understands our message as an order. , “Never do here”. And it will follow.
Any possible evil connected to that place. The cat understands only motivational and affectionate language. So he does not punish the cat. Punishment will not have the desired effect. On the contrary.
Invading the Territory
Cats are vulnerable in the following situations: when they sleep, eat, drink water, or go to garbage. I prefer to stay in higher places. From there I can see what’s going on around. It creates a sense of security that it associates with the territory. If they sleep, they will always have an intriguing eye.
If exposed or attacked when cat is cat by a more aggressive cat, he stressed. This stress associated with bedding. In the future, he will avoid it.
Garbage should be placed in a place where the cat enjoys little intimacy. A crowded place with many emotions and emotions is not a good choice. But no dark, mysterious, hidden, distant place is a solution. Or a place where you have to look for half an hour.
If the bed is placed in a discreet and accessible place, take a look in its neighborhood. Do not be a source of stress for our girlfriend. Washing machine, dog cushion, dog bowl are not inspired places.
However, any source of noise can become stressful, cat avoiding bedding. He prefers to do his needs elsewhere, alone. So, we need to think about where to put the bed so it does not have to move and meet the cat’s needs.
Last but not least, the cat refuses to use bedding for health reasons. This is immediately checked by your veterinarian. The cat may have problems with the urinary tract. These are kidney failure, kidney stone, cold, diabetes. It associates the pain with the place where it does its needs.
By avoiding the bedding, he thinks he will eliminate the suffering. We must urgently take the cat to the veterinarian because his life is in danger if he is not treated properly and on time.
Most problems can be eliminated from the start. When the cat is a chicken, we need to take care of his diet. Let’s take this seriously, do not feed it chaotically. In this way and with our cat we will be pleased.
Usually the cat uses bedding and does not “work” elsewhere. When the cat starts to avoid bedding, we need to find out why. First, we need to eliminate health problems with your veterinarian. Then we need to evaluate the situation and see how the causes I have set out above are being solved.
