Cat Poo Questions [R]

3 months, 3 weeks agoletitburn22 posted submission on cats.
April 29, 2019

HI all,

tl;dr: How do I eliminate the poop odor in a medium sized (2bd / 2ba) apartment with 2 cats?

The long of it:

My wife and I live in a city and recently adopted 2 indoor cats from a local shelter. They are male and Female. The ages are 1 year and 7 months, respectively. We live in a ~1,200 sq ft single floor apartment with 2 small bathrooms (maybe 6x8 feet). We have two litter boxes that we keep in one of the bathrooms. We use scented and clumping cat litter in addition to 2 [Renuzit air fresheners](https://www.renuzit.com/products/cones/linen-escape-air-freshener) placed in the bathroom and adjoining bedroom (we use it as an office / game room) to attempt to control the odor. The Air freshener does alright but I would like to do more, if possible, especially when guests come (which isn't often). Do you have any suggestions?

As a side note, I seem to recall reading somewhere that Baking Soda works wonders but I can't find anything to back that up. Does it work?

I second the closed litter box. I had two of these that come with a clear flap and a carbon filter. I upgraded to a Litter-Robot but kept these just in case because they really are great. This style might be rather big for a bathroom though.

Baking soda absolutely does wonders too. I also have some charcoal bags that I keep close by.

Air purifying plants are great too. Some require low light which makes them perfect for bathrooms. Just make sure they’re non toxic. Here’s a list of safe for pet plants. Just because they’re non toxic doesn’t mean they still can’t get a tummy ache if they eat a lot of the leaves. Just don’t let them munch on them :)

And of course the obvious. Just scooping every day, changing the litter and washing the boxes makes a huge difference!

MOTHER BARGES IN

YELLS AT STARTLED 16YO BRO TO GET HOME

TELLS OUR GUESTS TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF OUR HOUSE BECAUSE IT IS ACTUALLY HER HOUSE

TELLS US WE HAVE 30 DAYS TO VACATE

LEAVES WHISPER SCREAMING AT 16YO BRO

Answers to questions: no, she did not in any way think or believe that 16yo was in a bad situation, around alcohol or drugs, etc. No, she did not and does not care about the time on a Saturday night or if she does she just started at 1230am today! No, she will not fucking communicate with me.

Fact: she is the mom who just left her 16yo alone for 5 days and told him to have US take him shopping, get his shit, make his food. Fact, we have a verbal month to month contract so yes, this is legal although I could fight it on some sort of grounds but let's get real I'll spend way more that way than just moving the fuck out. Fact: other that one apartment that is a SIX month waiting list, I cannot seem to find ANYTHING that will accept a CAT in a rental. Fact: I have written about my brother on this account. Two weekends ago my mother sent my 16yo bro to stay the night with our eldest brother- eldest bro got 16yo drunk(first time) and talked MAD shit. Today 16yo bro told DH about this and how he has been having panic attacks ever since. My mother has no idea our eldest brother did this.

We just spent all night with our friends playing d&d and board games with my brother and telling him about the dangers of partying too young. Trying to teach him other life lessons. Then, in front of our friends my mother evicts us. Because we are bad fucking people. And you know what the best part is? She sat and complained to 16yo bro this morning that she cannot afford this house if we move out. Another reason 16yo bro is having panic attacks. This is fucking insane.

I have never... shook? Like that in my life. Both DH and I sat on our bed. The bed was bouncing. Because we were both shaking so hard.

It's almost 4am. I know I won't sleep. She did this on mother's day. You know why? Because she knew damn well not a single one of her kids did a damn thing for her. I'll bet she sat there and got so fucking angry. Thinking about how I finally got a night off with DH. A night to play d&d (which takes FOREVER!) while she say alone. Her only friend, 16yo bro, was with me playing games. She just couldn't fucking stand it. She's never been able to abide me having 'nice' things or a 'good time.'

In the end. This is fine. We will be uncomfortable for a minute but we can swing this. We've planned a move out date, we will be getting a storage unit and reserving a truck, Monday we will be giving the utilities instructions to shut off the day after we leave. We leave in two weeks.

It goes without saying that this combined with numerous incidents from my childhood will certainly close the door for any future contact, ever. I am talking, if I even get the news that she has died, I will not go to the funeral. If she has incurable cancer and needs a caretaker and find out none of her other spawn will do it, I will not shed a tear. Because I will be doing my best to not know. Two weeks. In two Sundays I will change my number.

The one main problem I have had with finding an apartment is that I cannot seem to find ANY places that accept animals AT ALL. Doesn't matter if it's an old cat. I'm not going to go cat lady on you. Also, I'm crying now. We are going to have to leave him. He is mine and DHs first baby. He is a tuxedo polydactyl. And he's special. Because he has not just one crazy fucking thumb on each paw, but two! And I love him. And his name is Jeeves, he wears a bow tie, and greets you at the door. Like a butler. We are going to have to leave him here.

My mother. Aschenbecher, skeletor ashtray, well, she likes the cat. She has always said she does. So hopefully she won't just take him to a shelter. But she probably will. And there is nothing I can do guys.

Another thing I can do nothing about is my 16yo bro. You all know. But I have an idea. He can do something about his situation. I know exactly who he needs to speak to. And 16yo bro will be going down to speak with this person. This person will call my mother in. At the very least, there is someone who will be able to hold my mother accountable for my brother and we will make sure that is set up.

But the fact is DH and I have two girls. Who deserve so much more than any of this. Who have no voice and can only speak to us. And we are going to make some major fucking sacrifices in the next few weeks.

Aschenbecher and my brother. My father, my passive step mother. My sister. That is who I am losing permanently tonight. I knew this was coming. I've been writing here and it's been obvious. It still hit me like a ton of bricks. The final blow... it hurt. I hurt for my kids, if that makes sense. I hurt for DH who grew up with crazy and I mean, here we are with my crazy family. I should never have agreed to this rental. I fucked up. I am tearing up again, literally wishing for proof of some deity to please just please never let me make this mistake again. I cannot forgive and forget ever again. It seemed like the right thing to do. It was not. I understand that now. How could I be so stupid as to not see this coming? I am so fucking arrogant. And look, here we are. In an unstable living environment and this is my fault. I have to learn this time. I have to do better.

The part that hurts the most is that feeling In the back of my heart that once we are gone my mother will never miss me or care that she will never see her granddaughters again. Im.so sorry.

I just do not understand open air litterboxes, dirty litter and faeces and awful cat pee spray everywhere!!

If you do use a covered litter box, dont get those tiny shit ones from walmart or the booda dome, they WILL shit on the stairs lol. I personally have 2 of these and the smell is nonexistent if you scoop every 2 days like you should. Plus you dont have to take the top off to scoop, theres a panel on top that folds up!!

You don't necessarily need to get the jumbo one (my cat is just a fattie) but I've lived in 3 different places with 3 different dogs, and none of them have tried to enter this litter box once I added the little door thingy to it.

So, I have a kitten. He is almost four months old. He is growing a lot. He's huge. He's almost the size of an adult cat already. He is also a Maine Coon so that isn't exactly a surprise. But what is a surprise is that in the slightly-less-than two months that I have had the kitten, he has outgrown two litterboxes. I need to buy a new one again. And this time, I want it to last. I want to buy him a crapper palace. What is the largest litter box I can purchase, preferably without a lid?

That, or I buy a LittleTyke (spelling?) sandbox and put litter in it.

Also, I change the litterbox twice a day and we are still having accidents where he steps on poop on his way out or something or when turning around in there. I'm hoping just buying a bigger box will help, but if not I am considering an automatic cleaning one to keep up. Thing is, I'm just concerned about the size. Any XL ones for bigger cats?

The Fun.

I think they mean something like this, with the lid removed obviously: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004I8Q6RQ

Roughly how large is the cat now in terms of height/length? Does your vet have an estimate how much more it will grow?

This one has a removable lid and can be used without it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004N1NAPY/ref=psdc2975299011t1_B003RQVGKC. It's pretty big.

My 16 pounder uses this with space to spare. Lid/door removable: https://www.amazon.com/Catit-Jumbo-Hooded-Cat-Litter/dp/B003RQVGKC

EDIT: On the second one, you can actually remove the plastic door and the gray flap on top to create a semi-covered box that partially open on top, which maybe a good compromise for a cat who needs some extra headroom.

How do I clean? [R]

2 years agoJuly 23, 2017

First off, I'm really sorry for posting here, but I'm not sure where else to go. My mother is a little bit of a hoarder. It's not terrible, I'm not even sure if it's diagnosable, but it is a problem. Mostly she's just too tired to clean, which is why there's always a problem with the house being messy. She has narcolepsy and insomnia, which really play off of each other in a way that's about as fantastic as you'd expect. Throw in fibromyalgia as a kicker and you've got a winning combination.

So she usually gets home from work and takes a nap first thing. On top of that, she's also not exactly a diligent worker to begin with, so most of her waking hours are spent on mindless entertainment. Now I'm exactly seventeen. I'm an incoming senior who's about to pick up a job and who takes college classes and spends time with friends on the side. Needless to say, I don't usually have much free time to spend cleaning. Plus, I'm fucking seventeen. I'm not the most cleanly person walking the earth.

Anyway, I think my mom's hoarding manifests most strongly in pets, of which we have seven; two dogs, three cats, one dove and one cockatiel. That's too many animals and I know it, but getting rid of them is difficult because mom would have my ass, and because I'd miss them myself.

The cats, if you couldn't have guessed by the title, are the main problem here. The house smells like piss, but I wouldn't know. Apparently I've been bathing in it so long that I can’t tell the stuff I breathe apart from clean air (as a side note, I've recently visited another house with a strong cat game and noted the odor as rather strong, which confuses me to no end and possibly rules out a case of toxiplasmosis). Also my mother's room used to radiate the stench, even to my desensitized sensibilities, and once it became flooded and the carpet/probable catbox had to be removed, I thought it was problem solved. Apparently not...

BTW, I've been very resistant to putting in any real effort into the house since last Christmas break, when I decided to clean out the garage, and was met with complaints from my mother for throwing things away that shouldn't have been moved, even though it all got recovered. Having nothing but complaints for a ten hour session of optional, unpaid labor really puts a damper on your spirit of generosity, as it turns out.

So more or less I've just written the house off. I'm going to keep it as clean as I need for my sanity, I'm not going to make any substantial labor investments into the house, and I'm going to move out when I go to college and stay moved out for the rest of my life.

Well, not so fast. My great aunt died a couple months ago, and December is the memorial. We have people coming down from North Carolina, and seeing how my aunt is going through her kink phase and is rooming with a lesbian with a cat-o-ninetails collection and my grandfather lives in a house that's too small to accommodate three more people, we're the only viable option.

Except, we're not a viable option with as bad as it smells here. Today my grandfather basically told us to clean our shit up. Problem is, we have no clue how. We keep the cat box clean(ish, depending on how long I’m away at my dad's), and we're down to zero carpeting whatsoever, so I don't know what to do.

I have two ideas so far, neither of which I have much confidence in: 1) scrub all the furniture - maybe the smell has absorbed into there? I really don't know. Even if that were the case, I don't know how to clean furniture the right way; every time I've tried, despite the ungodly ratio of bleach to water, the upholstery on the couch just smells just as strongly of dog than it did before I "cleaned” it. I can only imagine that this would be an even worse experience on a bed. 2) Move all catboxes outside - I think this is the more promising option; can't have a smell if it isn't even in the house. However, we do have a cat who doesn't like to go outside, and I really have no clue how the logistics of installing a doggy door would pan out. We don't have a screened-in patio, so I'm not even sure if that would be viable.

Anyway, sorry for the extra long post but my mom has taught be that venting to friends isn't okay, which means you strangers get my ranting.

TL;DR: We have family coming in a couple months and the house smells like cat piss. There is not carpeting and the catboxes are modestly clean. How do I get rid of the smell? Should I clean furniture? Should I move the catboxes outside? How do I do either of these things? Also, where else can I ask this question?

> What brand is the best?

What sort of cat litter are your cats used to?

For example, my cat liked the clay based cat litter, and wouldn't use the wood or paper based litter. I used Tidy Cats with a litter box liner.

If your cats are used to a certain type of litter (like, your mom buys different brands, but it's always a clay-based litter), make sure you stick with that material.

I also used a covered cat litter box and a litter mat.

Finally, I scooped 2x/day: once in the AM, once in the PM. And that was for ONE cat. Overkill? Maybe, but my house never smelled of cat urine or poo.

As a rule, cats don't like to pee/poo where other cats have gone, so I highly recommend you get two appropriately-sized boxed, box liners, and litter, and see how it goes. You might get lucky, or you might need to get a 3rd box. And start scooping on a regular schedule: I scooped right before I went to work, and right after I got home.

I fucking hate my cats now.. [R]

What do I do?!?

People used to call me a crazy cat lady- like seriously, all throughout high school I was voted "most likely to own a zillion cats". And I did! I grew up with 5 cats. I got married and now have two cats. Then, the day we brought home our baby, it hit me like a pound of bricks...

"Man fuck these cats.."

Their hair gets everywhere- I'm constantly picking it out of the babe's eyes and mouth. UGH.

I feel like they puke SO much more now, and the litter is just everywhere and OH MY WORD why do they try to step ON my baby instead of OVER my baby?! I swear I can hear babe's ribs just crack and break in my mind.

They just piss me off and I'm so confused.

So my cat is so polite to bury her waste in the litter box ever since she was little. Now I'm a first time cat owner, so I thought this was adorable at first, but over the years, and after moving and keeping her box in my room, her 'burying' has gotten more and more aggressive. Like literally, it's a flinging contest for her. She kicks the litter like crazy. When I clean up now, it's literally a fist full of litter she tracks around. I even use those little pads that trap litter in them!

My question is this: Is there anythings I can do to mitigate this? Like get finer litter? Improve her food? Maybe a new litter box? I think a new litter box would probably be the best working idea in my head.

any suggestions?

tl;dr My cat won't stop tracking litter, what have you guys done to mitigate this?

Mine used to the same thing. When he was younger, he sprayed litter all the way across the kitchen floor once when he was doing his combination kitty dirtbiking and treasure bury. He's calmed down some since then, though still spends a long time burying. I have a combination litter mat in front of the box, and bought these, which helps a lot. There's still a little tracking because paws, but it's nowhere near the mess that it used to be.

Usual deal long time lurker first time poster but I need to vent and I think people here will get where I'm coming from.

I recently and unexpectedly find myself with a new, friendly, enormous 3 year old cat. How did this happen? Well my co-worker decided he needed a bigger house and mentioned to me on Thursday that Sunday would be busy because they were moving and because he'd have to drop his cat off at the RSPCA.

Seems of all the houses they looked at they picked the one in a car containment zone (near nature reserve no cats outside) so the cat they rescued (from the RSPCA) 3 years ago and raised from a kitten has to go. Can't stay inside because... BABY!

  • You knew you had a cat if you wanted it to be outside find a place you can do that.

  • Why not keep him inside? It's not going to smother the baby.

  • Why did you make no effort to find a home before you arranged a move date?

  • How can you just dump a family member?

Not wanting a healthy 3 year old cat back in a shelter I said I'd take him and see if I could find a better option. We don't really want to keep him as our own rescue pet ecosystem isn't really impressed.

When we picked up the cat all they gave us was the carrier (too small for this big boy) and a bag of food. No toys, no bed, nothing.

This guy isn't a bad person but he just doesn't seem to get that pets aren't just entertainment for when it suits you. Pity cause I guess the kid will be brought up the same way.

Edit: in case his forever home is on childfree he's in NSW Australia

Hey, fellow Redditors. Here's our situation - we live in a small house with room for one litter box. We have four cats (all rescues) - tracking and smell is an issue. We've tried several different litters, but usually end up with little white pawprints all over the floor and furniture. And sometimes it smells pretty foul even though I clean it regularly. Do you have any suggestions?

Bonus: Any suggestions for good litter boxes would be awesome as well - we got a Booda Clean Step litter box to help cut down on tracking. I suppose it works, but it's also too small for our kitties who tend to pee against the side (it creates a bit of a puddle on the floor from time to time).

Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!!

My boyfriend and I have 4 cats as well and had been struggling for a long time with finding litter that actually clumped well and that cut down on odor. So Phresh cat litter has been an absolute godsend. Everything clumps so freaking tightly, I'm amazed at the giant clumps of urine that I scoop out every time I clean it. Also, I haven't noticed any paw prints on our furniture since we made the switch. I never thought I would feel so strongly about a brand of litter before, but I seriously love that stuff. We've tried their Advanced Odor Control and their Dual Odor Guard and both are phenomenal, though they also do a couple of different pellet litters if that's more your style.

As for the litter box situation, as other people have mentioned one litter box for 4 kitties isn't going to cut it, but if you really don't think you can sacrifice any space then you absolutely have to make sure that your litter box is being cleaned at least once a day. We are huge lovers of the Catit Jumbo Hooded Pan. It's spacious, deep, and wonderful for multi-cat households. Also, it has a door which helps tremendously with cutting down on odor, though the door can be held in place and out of the way if you or your kitties would prefer not to use it. That box combined with a litter mat has eliminated the tracking problem we used to have.

Looking for a LARGE, quality litter box. Any recommendations? [R]

We have 4 cats and they currently use a big Rubbermaid plastic storage bin that I have cut a hole in. It is ready to be replaced, but before I go out and buy a new one, I was wondering if any of you knew of a JUMBO sized litter box with hood out on the market.

This is the one we have. I'm kind of pissed, I paid 45 for it and it's almost half off now.

Absolutely do not buy this litter box. It is hands down the most disgusting unsanitary crappy litter box I have ever used. I replaced it within a month with this: http://www.amazon.com/Catit-Jumbo-Hooded-Cat-Litter/dp/B003RQVGKC/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1425079308&sr=8-1&keywords=catit+jumbo

The Omega Paw box is actually really tiny, even the large one. A grate takes up HALF of the box, so the cat can only use the half without the grate. My medium sized cats could barely turn around in it.

I'm going to the shelter today to look for a cat. Once I'm done there I'm going to head off to buy all the supplies I need

Thing is, my house is only around 550 sq feet, and I'm having a bit of trouble wondering where to put a litter box (or even two). The laundry room was my first idea but it's a tad cramped. My living room is ideal but (embarrassing as this is) I don't really know if it's normal to put a litter box in one's living room.

So is it cool to put a litter box on top of a scratching tower? I'd rather get an open box rather than an enclosed one, and having it a bit higher up would work better for me.

Otherwise I'd love to hear some recommendations for litter boxes for smaller living areas!

Edit I picked my girl up today, and so far things have been great! I opted to get a normal litterbox, but I don't think the walls are quite high enough. Turns out she's quite the enthusiastic kicker, and litter ended up going EVERYWHERE. I know some of you have mentioned the storage bin method, but I don't know if that will work either. Is there any sort of workaround or something? This is currently what's set up now. It's the biggest open area in the laundry room as the house is roughly 100 years old and quite cramped. As you can see, that's about as big as I can comfortably get it without making it awkward for me to get in the laundry room. So I'm just not sure if the storage bin thing will work, and I really don't want to do a hooded litter box. I'd love some advice for this last little issue I have before I fully descend off into cat wonderland!

Both my cats use ONE covered litter box, WITH a flap. They have never had any issues with it and have never had an accident on the floor. I even got the cats at separate times and they never had an issue sharing a box! Every cat is different.

MRW Amazon asks me if I want to share my order on Facebook. My order was a vibrator and a litter box. [R]

This one.

My male cat is kind of a portly gentleman and I think sometimes his ass hangs out of the box when he's going. We're going for a big boy jumbo box.

So. I managed to sell something of decent value on Amazon last week. This has netted me enough money to pay all my bills (yaaaaay), buy poop sand for the cats (grosssss)...and even has left me a little bit to spare. Now, a more responsible person would just save it for a rainy day and not touch it...but whatever. I've decided I would like to get myself a little treat. The thing is...I don't know what to get!

This is where you guys come in. Help me pick an item, $20 or lower (it doesn't even have to be close to $20; that's just my cap) that you think I should get myself from any of my WL's. Tell me why you think I should get it. "Just cause" does not count as a valid reason.

Then, tell me an item you think I should get you that is $10 or under (sorry, not sorry, I'm selfish). Tell me why I should buy you that item.

This contest will end...let's just say when I get home from going to see "A Million Ways to Die in the West" tonight and get back in front of my computer. Winner will be the person who suggested the item I chose. Otherwise, include the Raffle Phrase "no talking teddy bear" in case I decide to get something not mentioned.

READY, GO.

So I know you said $20 or lower but this cat box is $24 and it 's pretty much the best cat box ever. You've got a couple others on your list and you should delete them all in favor of this one. It's amazing. I got it for my cats and they absolutely love it. They hated their open box that I had before hand and would always rub poop on the sides when they could to show their disdain. This one, though, they love. When I first got it Sheldon and Loki both climbed in, used it together, and reveled in it's majesty. When my roommate's cat started having urinary tract infections and pissing all over the walls in his bathroom I made him get this one and it helped contain everything wonderfully until the meds kicked in and Snorlax started feeling better.

So, if I win, I say take the extra couple bucks from my $10 to get yourself that cat box and then get me this comic since it's the cheapest one on my list, I think. And I love comics. And I've wanted to read this one for like forever

And as much as I liked Ted I'm glad a Million Ways to Die in the West has no talking teddy bear!

Issues with a cat... [R]

Recently my husband and I moved to a college town. As a lot of students have to, we had to leave our cat behind at our parents. I wasn't worried, as we were back to visit often and they take good care of their other cat. After all, it would only be until we were able to move out of family dorms and into an apartment.

Turns out my in-laws weren't doing a really good job taking care of him. They were letting the new dog chase him around, and the other cat was beating him up. They were making him stay outside in the cold with the dogs off the chains, which would have been bad news for him if one of the dogs caught him. Over the holiday I went home to find him beat up with a badly hurt toe, scratches all over his face and ears, and he was much thinner than before as the other cat had been taking his food.

I was livid. I knew I had to get him out of there. And I did. I brought him home with us.

We are not allowed to have him here. If they find out we have him, they'll fine us $60 and make us get rid of him. If we don't get rid of him, they'll keep fining us in larger and larger increments.

Until we can move into an apartment, which is going to be as soon as we possibly can, I have to keep him a secret. That means keeping him out of the windows, keeping him hidden when maintenance comes (luckily they come very rarely) and generally keeping him hidden from anyone that would tattle.

I'm actually not too worried about hiding him. He sleeps all day and very rarely meows. To my pleasure, his favorite sleeping spot is on our bookshelf, behind a big stack of books where he can't be seen. If it comes down to it, I can shove him in the bathroom and take a shower whenever anyone who'd have a problem with him comes over.

His food is hidden in a cabinet, as is his litter. The litter box can easily be hidden if anyone comes over.

My problem? The litter box smell. I need to eliminate it. I have been cleaning it at every opportunity and using litter deodorizer, but I can still smell it. Surely if I can smell it, others could too.

What is a way I can eliminate the smell? Does anyone recommend a certain kind of litter, litter box, or anything like that? I need this to work just until we can get an apartment. I don't want to lose my cat, either.

I took care of him when he was small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, and I'm going to take care of him now since obviously my in-laws are fucking retarded when it comes to animals.

I found that cedar litter did a good job of hiding the smell. Maybe you can mix it in with the existing litter if you still want the clumping power. Also, I got a "Jumbo" hooded litter box from Amazon and that thing is freaking awesome at controlling smells and litter tracking.

Sorry about your kitty :( I'm glad he is with you now.

PS: Zero Odor works very well at eliminating smells from plastic.

If you really want to spend some (okay, a lot of) money, a Winix Air Purifier works really well.

Found this kitten on the road in the middle of the night, what should I know? [R]

I have a recommendation from a vet-student of mine: Purina Pro-Plan. It encompasses extremely high-quality ingredients, affordable prices and various flavors/specialty blends. The dry food or wet variant are both excellent for your kitty, but the dry food will be cheaper. I would use the wet food if the kitty doesn't adhere well to drinking water as the wet-food contains high amounts of water. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. Congratulations on becoming a kitty owner!

Here are my recommendations on supplies:
