|Welcome to CATSTER and the wonderful world of being owned by a cat. On the question about her nap spot....don't worry, she will find another spot come cold weather.
On litter boxes, I wash the cats boxes out once a week. I empty all the litter into a plastic bag (use the ones from the grocery), then I put a little dish wasing liquid into the box, then add water and scrub. I got an inexpensive brush at the Dollar Store, and use it ONLY for this. I rinse twice, and dry the box(s) in the sun. I have a patio, so I can do this outdoors. This would work in warm weather but in the winter, wipe out the box with a damp paper towel then you can use one of those antibacterial cleaning wipes, then wipe again with another damp paper towel. Let the box dry and put in clean litter. A tip another cat person gave me is, when the box is completely dry, spray a little PAM or other "spray oil" in the bottom of the box. Helps those "clumps" from developing in the box that are so hard to clean. Personally I would NEVER flush litter, now matter what the manufacturer says....and you are right not to rinse the box in the bathtub.
Ember is a beautiful cat, bless you for givng her a home. You will certainly hear from other CATSTERS, there are lots and lots of knowledgeble cat people here who are always ready to give advice to a new cat owner.
