Hello, my name is Carole Wilbourn. I'm The Cat Therapist here in New York City. In this clip, we're going to talk about why a cat uses a litter box. An outdoor cat would normally urinate or defecate in soil or dirt, so it's obvious why a cat would use a litter box. A litter box has either sand, clay. It could be clumping or maybe it's not clumping. There are some cats that are very particular about the type of litter that's used in the litter box, but then there's the cat that it doesn't matter -- any litter is fine. But you should scoop the litter often and keep your cat's litter box in a quiet and private place. Remember, a cat does not always like to litter in the middle of the room. In fact, if you don't find a good spot for your cat's litter box, you may find your cat litters exactly where you don't want the litter. Once again, this is Carole Wilbourn, The Cat Therapist, in New York City.
