Cat litter tracking hacks: How to get your cat to sit in their bed
Pets may be man’s best friends, but they can also be a pn in the neck. For many of us, a furry friend is an everyday part of our lives, but with no way of knowing when the cat is going to want to scratch or claw their way into your home, sometimes they just won’t sit still. They’ll be curled up in a cozy spot, but when you’re busy trying to take care of yourself or other family members, they’re going to let you know they’d prefer it if you’d get them a new bed.
You might say it’s not your cat’s fault that they’re making you work to settle down, but it is your job to settle them down. It’s also your job to work with them and put up with the occasional rumblings of discontent as they decide which is the better bed for them to use.
In this post, you’ll learn some hacks to trn your cat to sit in their bed — and if you need to replace the bed, you’ll be prepared.
If the bedding isn’t just the right size and shape for your cat’s liking, your cat might just be able to tell. If you’ve been putting up with those stubborn cats that won’t sit still, you may have noticed that one thing’s for sure: your cat’s sleeping habits just changed.
With them no longer sleeping or lounging in one particular spot, it’s time to change up the bed. With some proper instructions and a few tricks up your sleeve, you’ll be able to get your cat to sit on their bed in no time. In fact, one of the best parts of this hack is that you can take the bed to different locations within your home — so it doesn’t really matter if they have an aversion to sitting in one particular spot or if they don’t seem interested in the bed in the first place.
1. Trn Your Cat to Sit in Their Bed
First, you’ll need to teach your cat what the bed is. Start by making a “cat bed” from an old blanket or comforter that’s large enough to fit around their bottom and two sides. Make sure that it’s large enough so that it won’t get in the cat’s way while they’re trying to sleep. Make sure that the blanket is nice and soft — and that you’re not going to get it ruined if it gets scooted.
Once you’ve got the bed made, move on to trning your cat to use it. First, give the cat something to keep them occupied with, like a new toy or scratching post. Get them used to the bed by having them use it while you’re away — and let them use it while you’re doing things like vacuuming or using the computer. Once they’re good at it, reward them for sleeping in the bed with treats or play.
Make sure to keep your cat entertned while they’re using the bed — you don’t want them thinking that just because they’re in a comfy place to sleep, it’s the same as being on their own. If they’re sleeping well, then they should be able to sit in their bed and go to sleep without any problems. It can take a few days before your cat actually realizes that the bed is what they need to be sleeping in, so make sure to stick with it.
2. Place the Bed in New Location
One of the biggest things you can do to encourage your cat to use the bed is to just move it — just for a short period of time. For example, once you have your cat comfortable with their bed in your living room, you can move it to another room and let them go to sleep in it there. Or, once your cat is used to sleeping in it in their own room, you can move it to your office and go to work. Just keep in mind that your cat is going to learn to use the bed better in the room that it’s in longer — it’s just going to be more familiar.
3. Set Some Rules
Sometimes it can be a good idea to set some rules for your cat — just to make sure that they can’t get into any trouble while they’re using the bed. There’s really no reason to set any rules, but you’ll know that your cat’s having trouble sleeping if you hear them scratching or you notice any damage to the bed. Then you’ll know that they’re using it to get out of trouble.
4. Offer Them Something Good to Use It For
You can sometimes help your cat get used to the bed by offering them a favorite toy to use it for. For example, if your cat is used to sleeping in their bed, you could get them a cat toy and allow them to use the bed like a pillow. This will make your cat realize that the bed is what they need to sleep in — the cat toy won’t hurt them, but it won’t be that comfortable either. So they might choose a different option.
5. Be Patient
One thing you need to know when working with a new toy is that you’re going to have to be patient with it. You’re going to have to wt for it to work before you really know what it can do. This doesn’t mean that you should give up on it just because it doesn’t work right away. Sometimes, with cats, it’s just a matter of helping them get used to the bed so that they can enjoy it later.
The Best Scented Items for Cats
Cats are usually picky about their bedding, and that’s because they have an extremely sensitive sense of smell. While they don’t need a lot of bedding to feel secure, they still love it. To make sure that your cat is really comfortable in it, you’ll want to make sure that they don’t have any trouble with smells.
That means that you’ll want to make sure that the bedding is clean and that you add in some of the most natural cat smells. There are several options for some of the best cat smells that you can find at some natural stores. You can even make your own, if you have a strong stomach. There are also some great options when it comes to scent-free bedding. If you’re not comfortable adding in a scent or want to go with something that won’t get too strong, you can make sure to get some of the best cat scented products that you can find.
The next step is that you should consider some cat-specific products. As cats are known for being difficult when it comes to baths, there are a couple of different products that you can get to help. If you want to make sure that you’re getting the right cat-specific products for your cat, the first thing you’ll want to do is have a good look at what’s already on the market. This will be a good way to help you find some of the best bath toys for cats that are already avlable. When you go with
