stinky litter box

My cat has gotten so lazy he won't even cover up his mess in the litter box. Even if it's just been cleaned, without being covered up, it stinks up the whole house! I have no clue what to do.

My cat Sir Amadeus usually doesn't cover his 'doo; up either.

I have a covered littler box which helps with the smell, by trapping in there. I also use a litter called 'Swheat" with is good at keeping the smell down, although I do add a little baking soda.

You can actually buy litter box deodarizer (sp?) I just got some the other day, so I will let you know how that works. My cats don't cover up their business either and I wipe the edges of the box with lysol wipes weekly to keep it a bit more clean.

I have heard pure vinilla extras put in to pets drinking water helps keep down the pee smell. It works with my male mice. But the poo smell can be harder. my females never cover their poo up and their is 2 litter boxes which get cleaned once a day or at lest 2 times a day depending on which box they decide to use the most. Their is litter box power the work and yes bakeing soda.

Actually, the rank smell of poo can correlate with the type of food the cat is being fed on. Generally, the better the ingredients the food has, the less rancid the poos smell.

Sometimes mine don't cover their poop up either.
As for the litter box deoderizers,I used to use them too,but then discovered baking soda is just as good and cheaper! So I put abit of baking soda in the boxes.

Before we use deodorizer, mom used to put some kind of leaves and charcoal..
