|I use the Dr. Elsey's unscented clumping litter (which I found out about here - thanks, Catsters!) in Violet's box. It keeps the dust down, and it honestly doesn't stink! I scoop it twice a day - once when we get up in the morning, and again when I come home from work. I also have a rug underneath - one thing that really helps my arthritic knees is that I have one of those soft padded bath mats under it instead of a regular rug. It's nicer on Violet's paws, and doesn't hurt my knees since I have to kneel down close enough to scoop. I just got it in a neutral "mushroom" color so it doesn't look weird in the corner of my kitchen where her litterbox is!
Now I have a question for the Catsters. I keep hearing about hooded vs. non-hooded litterboxes. I have a hooded litterbox for Violet, and she seems to be fine with it. I always had a hooded one for Edison too, and never had any issues his whole life. Any pros or cons? Right now, Violet is almost 3 mos. old, and the litterbox is considered your standard "large" from PetSmart. She's fine getting in and out of it, but I've heard that unhooded is better. I have a very tiny apartment - any thoughts on which box might be better when I eventually get her a newer one?
