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.
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.
