2 / Only providing one litter box
It’s not just fresh water that felines be disposed to fuss over. It turns out they also prefer having more than one litter box to choose from. “In nature, we love cats separation behaviors of urination and defecation,” as Stewart explained. “In the house, having just one box where there’s both urination and defecation can cause a cat to urinate outside of the box.” Her rule of thumb is to the provision of a litter box and one for each cat, plus one more. “For example, if you have two cats, you need three boxes instead of one,” she says.
