How many kitty litter trays should I have?

The general rule of thumb is to have one litter box per cat, plus one extra. This means if you have one cat, you should have two litter boxes; if you have two cats, you should have three litter boxes, and so on.

The reason for this rule is that cats are often very particular about their litter boxes. Having multiple boxes ensures that there's always a clean spot available for your cat to use, and it helps reduce territorial behavior between cats in multi-cat households.

The litter boxes should be placed in different locations around your house, ideally in low-traffic areas where your cat will have some privacy. Regular cleaning is essential to keep the boxes fresh and inviting for your cat. Remember, each cat may have their own preference for the type of litter, the location of the box, and the type of box itself (covered vs. uncovered). Adjustments may need to be made based on the preferences of your individual cat(s).
