Patient, consistent litter training is the first step in making sure your cat knows where to go. Provide a clean, attractive litter box for your cat in an area of the house where she has easy access and a degree of privacy. Scoop out the used litter on a daily basis, so your cat doesn\’t have to tread through her own mess to use the litter box.
If you see your cat in action peeing outside the litter box, tell her a clear \”no\” and take her to the litter box immediately. Be as consistent as you can in your domestic schedule, and make time to hang out and be affectionate with your cat. Particularly if she feels neglected due to the recent introduction of new pets or children in the home, it\’s important your cat knows you still have time and affection for her.
Keep your bedroom and wardrobe tidy, as cats may dislike a messy environment. Put away clean laundry and close the wardrobe door so your cat doesn\’t have access to your clean clothes. Clean up cat urine as soon as you find it, so your bed or clothes don\’t start to smell like a cat urinal.
Once any fabric is impregnated with the smell of cat urine, your cat may think of that fabric as her personal toilet.
