We have one cat, one litter box and I *try* to scoop every 3-4 days, but a lot of the time it ends up being once a week. It’s covered and in a room we don’t go in very often (except to feed the cat) so I don’t think about it too much. Our cat never seems to mind and he has never not used his litter box, so it’s not a huge deal.

We have 3 cats and 2 boxes (one upstairs & one downstairs). We usually scoop every day or two. I’ve also been told that you should one box for each cat and one extra, but there’s no room for four litter boxes in my apartment!

I have a cat sanctuary. I scoop 16 litter pans, including two GIANT ones every blessed day.

2 cats, 2 boxes. I scoop every other day or so and my fiance changes the entire thing every 2 weeks.

I have a 15 year old cat who has gotten more persnickety in her old age. She was eliminating outside of the box for a while, so I had to move the box to where she was going, and change the brand of litter because she seems to hate the clay kind.
Now that I’ve got her going in the box again, I am more than happy to scoop it out any time she uses it, and offer her a treat to reward the desired behavior.

Twice a day! I scoop mine about once a week. Though one of the two litterboxes (for two cats) is a Litter Robot, which is basically always clean. But only one of my cats uses it.

I’m a volunteer at an cat rescue shelter and they go by the rule one litter box per two cats. My vet told me the same thing. I have three cats and and two litter boxes. I try to clean once a day but usually it ends up being every other day depending on how busy we are. Lately it’s been once a day since I’ve been home. There’s been times though that I have to clean it twice a day because one of them had a really stinky poop lol.

I try to scoop once per day, but I’m REALLY good at forgetting to do so. I end up just scooping (or throwing out and starting over) on trash day every week. SORRY CAT!

I have one automatic litter box for two cats. It scoops itself 10 minutes after the cats do their business so it’s pretty much always clean.

We have 2 cats and 2 litter boxes and I scoop them every other day (more or less). When we had 3 cats, we had 3 litter boxes.

I scoop at least twice a day, before I go to work in the morning and again before I go to sleep. I got an XL pan because my cat was growing out of his old one and ended up keeping both since he would go in both, lol (so two pans for one cat – couldn’t vote twice). The extra pan helped for when we needed to stay away overnight which happened more frequently once we got engaged for wedding planning. A cat’s sense of smell is very sensitive and they do not like to walk in their own waste. They always say to ask yourself, “How often do you flush your toilet” and “would you want to use a dirty bathroom” and that’s why I try to give my cat a clean litter! I would love to get an automatic one.

@dynamic_duo: Just because people on here aren’t doing it doesn’t mean it’s not the best thing for the cat.
We scope probably about 3 – 4 times a day for 3 cats. We’d get them more than the one box but do NOT even have the space for the one so….next move, maybe.

I had ferrets (hey, they’re like long cats, but cooler!) and I had one pan per 2 ferrets, and scooped twice a day. I now have rabbits and scoop twice a day.
I found the cleaner the pan is, the more most animals will want to use it.
Am a bit surprised at the results. Cat poo REALLY stinks so I’m surprised there are so many people letting their pans build up for so many day.

1 cat, 1 box. I *try* to scoop once a day, but it usually ends up being every other day.
@BerryBerry: We have a covered box for Luna. We were surprised at how much it keeps the smell contained. That or our cat just doesn’t have very stinky poops. 😉
