Special Beds for Special Cats – now with video update

So why  is that new cat peering over the edge of the litter box, preferring lay in its own litter rather than that comfy-lookingl cat bed?

Thanks Esther, for providing one possible answer when we were first dealing with the menace called Brutus – the security of having a hiding spot.

Brutus makes a better choice of hiding spots and leaves the litter.

Using a new or disinfected letterbox with minimal bedding provides enough depth to satisfy the need to have a safe place and feel more secure.

An added benefit is that a point is reached, in the socialization period, when you can move the “bin-bed”  while the cat is in it to make brushing or hand contact easier.

Tippy can now be moved forward to make brush or hand contact easier.
