Questions and answers about litter trays
What types of litter tray are there?
When looking for the right litter tray, there are open and closed variants. There are also closed litter trays with or without a flap. Cat litter trays come in different sizes, materials and functions.
Do cats prefer open or closed litter trays?
Every cat has its own preferences, which are also reflected in the use of litter trays. Many cats love open litter trays. They don't feel restricted there, can see everything and have several ways to escape in an emergency. Other animals prefer a closed toilet instead. Open toilets can have better air circulation and allow unpleasant odours to disappear more quickly.
Which litter tray is better?
Researchers at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted a study to investigate whether domestic cats have preferences when using the litter tray and whether an open litter tray or a closed one is preferred. The results of the study were published in October 2012 in the "Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery". The results of this scientific study proved that there is no significant difference between using a closed litter box or an open litter box in domestic cats.
Which material is best for litter trays?
Hard plastic is an excellent choice for the litter tray. It is hard-wearing and easy to clean. Enamel is also ideal for the litter tray. The material is extremely robust and hard, the surface is scratch-resistant and easy to clean. The material also has the advantage that it does not absorb odours.

This makes it more interesting for the little house cat and helps him to go to the toilet. Cats quickly understand what the litter tray is for as they appreciate a quiet and safe place to do their business. If an accident occurs, it is advisable to be patient and not to punish your cat. Good behaviour should be regularly rewarded with rewards and recognition.
What else can I do if my cat simply won't go to the litter tray?

Your cat will associate cat litter with its distress. If your cat has understood this connection and has actually used the toilet, you should praise her. Give her treats and reward her with kind words and cuddles.
