Is your cat urinating on your bed? 5 tips to get your cat back in the box.

1. Supersize it!
Compare the relative size of your bathroom to your cat's bathroom. A standard litterbox for the average sized cat is equivalent to a bathroom the size of a closet for you!
2. Make it convenient!
Put your cat's box in areas where she can easily get to it. If your dog is blocking the litterbox or snacking each day in it, your cat is going to find a more convenient place to go to the bathroom--like your bed!
3. Give her what she wants!
Don't buy whichever litter is on sale, if your cat likes a certain brand, stick with it and don't ever change!
4. Clean up!
Scoop your cat's box at least daily. That's right, a minimum of daily. How often do you flush? If your litterbox looks like the one above, get to work!
5. Let it breathe!
Most cats like uncovered boxes. We like them because they keep the smell in, but most cats don't like them for the same reason!
