If you are serious about caring for a feline

The Litter Box
Cats have very good eyesight. But they have better
sense of smell. And they don't like anything that stinks. So watch out for those litter boxes. If you don't keep
them maintained, your pet may opt for the laundry basket that smells a lot better.
You cat can smell 14 times better than you do. So
