Multi-cat homes are challenging. These cats need better health options along with many other things. Litter boxes, health, jealousy issues, cat food and vacation time are discussed.
Purchase one litter box per cat. This should help a lot when it comes to odor control. Clean the litter boxes out weekly. This will also help with odor control. Sprinkle baking soda on top of the litter that you put in their litter boxes.
Cats need to be watched carefully for any sudden changes in their behavior. If one cat gets sick in a multi-cat environment, then the rest may get sick as well. Fleas are one example. Cats that have fleas give them to the other cats living in the household, and to the family members as well. Remember to take them to the vet for regular checkups. Keep a watchful eye out and have a clean, safe environment for the whole family.
Cats are jealous and tend to mark their territory. They even do this with their owners Try giving all the cats' equal attention and they will soon be scamping around happy and carefree. Set a side a special time each day to bond with each of them.
Cat owners should find a cat food that all the cats will enjoy and benefit from. Some cats can eat just about anything, while others have sensitive stomach issues. By finding one type of cat food for them all, this may help the cats eat what's in front of them instead of eating from the other cat's bowls.
Cat owners need time off from time to time and need more assistance providing for their multi-cat household. Ask friends or neighbor that you trust to come in and check on them twice a day and check their food, water bowl, and scoop out their litter boxes.

Cat care is super important. If you're going to take on the responsibility, do it the best you can for the sake of all, right? Good list.
Good and useful tips for all cat owners. That is me with 2 kitties.thank you for the fine info.
I have had two cats in the past. But the cat I have now is very territorial. It just wouldn't work. However, she doesn't mind the dog. She just bosses him.
I have no cats, but I have 1 spoiled dog.
Good tips. More than one litter box works well for territory issues too!
Great advice. I've always lived in a multi-cat household. It can be tricky sometimes.
Another great and informative list.
Great advice for multiple cat owners.
