How to Keep Your Cat’s Litter Box Smelling Fresh


Share post:

You love your cat, but let’s be real—cleaning their litter box is not the highlight of your day. It’s a chore, plain and simple. But imagine having to clean 40 litter boxes every day! That’s the daily routine for the dedicated staff at Living Free Animal Sanctuary’s cattery, a haven that more than 100 cats call home.

The staff manages to keep the cattery smelling like a bed of roses instead of a litter box through a love-filled, fun, and care-packed process. Working in teams of three, the staff cleans both the litter boxes and the floor around the litter boxes with animal-safe sanitizing and deodorizing cleaning products.
During the cleaning process, the staff takes time to bond and socialize with the cats, which not only helps them form closer relationships with the feline residents, but also helps them keep a tab on their health. The staff can easily tell when a cat might be sick or isn’t using the litter box as usual, which helps them catch any potential health issues early on. It’s amazing how much you can learn about a cat’s health just by cleaning their litter box!

Visitors are always amazed by the cattery’s clean and fresh scent, despite the number of cats living there. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers at Living Free Animal Sanctuary. They work tirelessly to ensure the cattery is not only a safe and loving home for the cats but also a pleasant place for everyone who visits.

And if you’re looking to keep your own home smelling fresh and clean with a feline friend, here are three tips from the experts at Living Free:
Clean the litter box regularly and thoroughly. The more frequently you clean it, the less odor it will produce.
Use a good quality unscented litter that has strong odor-control properties.

Regularly wash and replace the litter box, especially if it’s looking worn or dirty.
