Litter Box Mastery | ​​Part One: The Multiple-Box Solution

Litter Box Mastery | ​​Part One: The Multiple-Box Solution

While writing my new book, Total Cat Mojo, I encountered a pretty big roadblock when it came to encapsulating what I know about litter box problems(and one that I run into when explaining to clients): There is no stock, one-size-fits-all solution to these issues. They are like pee and poop-shaped snowflakes, as individual as the cat […]
