In the summer, many children love to spend time in the sandbox. It can be an enjoyable playtime experience for them, and can be an hours long diversion that many parents welcome. Likewise, many adults enjoy the peace and tranquility of gardening. You and your children can easily make a whole day outdoors enjoying these activities.
If your household includes a cat that also enjoys time outside as well, a sandbox or garden is often considered an attractive outdoor litter box. It may not even be your cat! A cat’s natural preferences for elimination include soft sand- or soil-type material so the attraction to these areas can be annoying and potentially hazardous to your health.
Fortunately, there are methods that can be used to discourage this unwanted behavior. Try out these tips to keep your kitty out of unwanted areas.
TIP – A small space with cat-attractive plants could be established in a quiet corner of the yard away from children’s activities.
