Buying the right size litter box for your cat needs is important and often not done. Many cat owners buy a regular size litter box at the store for their cat and then reap the consequences. If a cat is in a litter box that is too small for it, the chances of the waste not ending up in the litter box increases. Many cats also like to dig in the litter and if the box is too small, the litter can end up all over the floor and then the cat may carry that litter around the home. The best option is to get a large cat litter box to suit the large cat or even multiple cats. There are many great, cheap options on Amazon and we have ranked the top five for you.
