Cats (even in the wild) cover their poo to keep pray away. Your cat is not feeling any threat so for him, there is no need to cover it up. You will just have to have the scooper ready to clear it when he goes. Also, I would not recommend using a covered box. If you can smell it, imagine what the cat is smelling and they have a better sense of smell than humans do. It will only discourage the use of the box at some point. The best litter I’ve found is Scoop Away. It is not dusty, it has great clumping action, it’s not expensive and can often come with a dollar off on the box, smells great and the cats love the texture. I clean out the box 2 or 3 times a day. I have multi boxes even as we do rescue cats as well as have our own. If you do that, there is no smell and the box stays fresh. It’s not the best job to have but if you and the people in the house take turns and stay on it. It will always be fresh. Good for you and them. Cheers on the rescue. I also rescued one at 1 week and had to teach it to potty. He is a pro at it and learned really fast. Just remember you have to think like a cat, not a human. It’s not always about what’s best for us but for them too. They are after all, family. 🙂
Thank you for the post. spay/neuter is so very important for the health of the pet and if you love them. You would be doing them a big favor. Also, as far as cost goes.
I have to keep the cost of a spay/neuter down as I rescue cats and also have my own. You might want to check your local animal care and control agency (ACC) as they can do it low cost or tell you who they use for low cost. I just had two cats altered for 20 bucks TOTAL! 10 bucks each.
(I went to the Denver Dumb Friends League, a mobile unit called the Meowmobile) That included shots (rabies/distemper/parvo) and neuter/spay for 10 bucks each cat. The cost of spay/neuter is coming down because it cost shelters more to home unwanted pets.
