Is your Bengal fussy when using the litter tray?

Bailey will only use the tray once for either one or the other.

We have two litter trays but he seems to only use one. If he has been for wee and we havent noticed he has been, two minutes later he will be off into another room where he will poo on the wooden floors near the other clean litter tray( we have cleaned this several times and even changed it with the other to see if there was something wrong with the smell etc). We cant understand why he will only use the tray once and if we dont clean it he will wait until he is desperate.

His breeder said he had never done this before and shared a litter tray with his brothers and sisters.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Emma

Think i have sussed Bailey out......he's fussy.

I have two covered trays and the side of each other and once he has used one he'll go in the other and when I have cleaned one he's goes back in.

Talk about high maintenance.
:roll:

I'm glad Oska's not like that, with 5 cats in the house it would be a problem :)

Naomi (not very helpful I know but then all mine use the cat litter normally so wouldn't know how to tackle your problem :) )

Hi Emma,

what cat litter do you use ?

It might be an idea to ask the breeder what litter she uses.

Doeas the litter soak up the wee ?
I know there are some litters that don't absorb like the pink Sophisticat. I'm just wondering when Bailey goes for a wee that he doesn't want to go back in if he thinks he will get his feet wet :shock:

Mine will often wee in one tray and then poo in another :lol:
Also guaranteed that when their trays are cleaned they all go to the toilet and leave a parcel so then I have to do them again :roll:

Hi Elaine

Our breeder gave us some Tesco's owner brand litter, the clay type when we collected Bailey.

I changed to Catsan, which was also fine and clumped together okay.

We then got a free sample of recycled cat littler (made with paper/cardboard rolled up into pellets) which is really good, soaks up and covers everything even the odour, I cant remember the name of it at the moment. Bailey has been like this with every cat littler. :?

Hi Emma,

we use Yesterdays News paper pellets for our kittens, wonder if it is similar to the one your using.

I would keep to using one kind of litter because I know my cats don't like it when I change their litter to something else. I've known them to use the floor instead of their tray :?

Where he is pooing try putting an extra litter tray there for him. You could perhaps put some food where he's having his accidents, this might stop him.

Let me know how you get on.
