One of the biggest behavioral issues pet parents report about  cats is when they don’t keep their business in the litterbox. This reluctance to adhere to the boundaries may be the result of a medical condition, stress or litterbox unhappiness.

If you and your veterinarian rule out a medical condition as a reason for your cat’s misbehavior, these tips from Vetstreet may help you make your cat’s litterbox experience more enjoyable.

Or, if your cat is picky about what fills his/her litterbox, you may also want to check this helpful information from our friends at the ASPCA® about choosing cat litter.
