What is this little box of sawdust stuff here?
My cat is inside for the first time in her life. She lived in the barn when we moved here. She's pregnant and we want her to have her kittens in safety because the one before was killed by either a raccoon or Tom cat. And before you think- she's getting spayed after and we are keeping the kittens. They will be properly cared for.
Ok. So Persephone doesn't mind being inside (in our basement) for over 24 hours and she hasn't used the litter box I've provided for her. The floor is dirt and I'm wondering if she's going to prefer using it than the box of litter. She's been eating so I know she's gotta be going somewhere. I made things so nice for her there but it isn't guaranteed she'll use any of it.
Any ideas on how to encourage a cat to use the box?
