Lifestyle changes:

  • Cut a low opening in the litter box so kitty doesn’t have to jump in
  • Make sure it’s as spacious as possible
  • Keep the litter box close to them
  • Get a set of steps or ramps so they can get to their favourite spot with ease
  • Make food and water easy to reach
  • Elevate food and water slightly for comfortable eating/drinking
  • Sleeping on a heating pad may help with pain and comfort (never leave them unattended on a heating pad)
