Waste disposal is an essential aspect of cat ownership that often receives little thought or attention. At its most basic, cat waste disposal requires a litter box and litter. However, there are numerous products and accessories that can make litter box management and maintenance seem like less of a chore.
The first consideration is what type of litter box will work best for you and your cat. There are several factors involved in this decision and they are size, style, and cleaning mechanisms. Additionally, consider how many litter boxes you need. In a single cat household you can often get by with just one box, but with multiple cats the guideline is one litter box per cat plus one extra.
The other product involved with cat waste disposal is cat litter. Litters come in a vast array of textures, materials, and scents and it can often be overwhelming to try and select the right kind. You also want to try and pick one type of litter and use it on a consistent basis. Cats can be very picky about their liter and often something as simple as a new brand can cause them to stop using the litter box. If you do need to change to a different type of litter you can mix the new litter with your old, gradually increasing the amount of new. We carry a variety of litters, ranging from clumping to all natural.

Litter mats are designed to trap and hold litter, eliminating it from being tracked into unwanted areas. They are easy to clean, just requiring you to shake them off occasionally, and many have non-absorbent backings.
Litter scoops usually feature large slits for sifting dirty litter out of your litter box and many styles have pointed tips or corners to help trap hard to reach waste. They are available in a variety of colors.
Enzyme cleaners eliminate pet stains and odors, rather than just masking them.
