New technology, new pet safety measures. With the rise of technology and social media, the ways of keeping pets safe have changed.
Last month, I wrote an entry on how to make road trips with pets more bearable. This month, I would like to write a follow-up on my personal experience with my pooch, Thor.
Dear Seth, A few months ago, my cat started pooping on the floor instead of the litter. I consulted the vet and one of the assistants had the same problem. The Fresh Step litter had added carbon and we figured she didn't like the new odors as it was strong. I tried another Fresh Step and she didn't like it either. So we have switched to Scoop Away Unscented. It seemed to help as long as we kept the litter very, very clean. But now twice she has pooped on the floor after installing clean litter. I could spray the bathroom rugs but she may poop elsewhere! What can I tell a cat sitter when I go on vacation? What is this? What can we do? She shares the litter with our other cat who is fastidious. Thanks. Lillian in Yorktown Heights, NY
