My Cat Miss Kitty had a problem of not making it to the cat litter box. I worked with her for several months trying to fix the problem. Even when plastic tarp was laid around the litter box it she still didn’t get her to use the litter box. Then all of a sudden I realized the box was being use by all the house hold cats. Miss Kitty needed her own private place. I purchase the picture night stand for her use only and never had any problems again. Many people don’t work with their pet to resolve behavioral issues and may cats end up alone in shelters. So please save our little feline friends in understating how to resolve their problems.
