Did you know cat litter has only been around since the 1950’s? With the invention of litter trays, smart feeders, microchip cat flaps and cat trees, to name a few, we now have much more freedom in how we choose to set up our cats’ environments.
Your Cat’s Brain!
When planning your cat’s environment, it is important to consider how your cat thinks. Cats are very territorial; they like to have their own space, and be aware of what is happening around them. They also spend a large part of the day resting.
Did you know cats really love routine? Cats are happiest when they can predict their environment, including where all their resources (food, water, toys, litter tray etc) will be, and knowing when to expect food and company.
Just like us, some cats are better and some are poorer at coping with changes in routine or environment. For cats who cope with change very poorly, even a small change can make them ill, or may set off unwanted behaviours such as urine marking in the house.
