Cats evolved to eliminate out of doors, and they are very particular about doing it indoors. A host of new litter box studies has given us a lot of information on what cats prefer from their box. We'll go over the box, the litter, the location and the ambiance that cats prefer.
We also have a new understanding of the role stress and boredom play in litter box use and misuse. We'll discuss how play and enrichment affect litter box use.
