I think that it would be even better if you could cleanup the mess, using things that you actually have in your kitchen and you wouldn’t have to run to the pet store to purchase commercial products for cleaning.
Put garbage cans and containers out of plain view. They will detract from your homes overall appearance. Research shows that almost 70% of buyers make a decision about a home before they ever step foot on the property. First impressions count.
Bring a pot of water to boil on the stove and add cinnamon and other sweet smelling spices to it. Bring the heat down to a simmer, and let it simmer throughout the day. Be sure to keep enough water in the pot and an eye on the pot to avoid burning the spices (or anything else), smoke is not a very popular household scent.
Arrange for your pets to be out of the way while the buyers are looking through your home. Not everyone is an animal lover and pets can be distracting. This applies to young children as well. If you have enough notice that people are coming to see your home, have your spouse or other responsible adult take the children out for the time during which the prospective buyers will be there.
Second, your cat(s) should be of the type that is not spooked by the automatic rake. The box itself is automated with an electric eye, where a rake automatically “scoops” used litter as soon as your cat exits the box and deposits it in a repository situated at the back end of the box. If this type of movement spooks your cat, it’s likely that he or she will not enter the box at all, thus making it useless to you.
However, if your senior cat voluntarily confines herself to one area, then you may only need to consider litter box placement in that part of your home. And just like blind kitties, consider the type of best automatic cat litter box that’s best for your senior cat. If she has stiff joints, be sure she can easily climb in and out of the box. If she’s unable to squat to urinate, you’ll need a high-sided box. The solution given above may be just the ticket to avoid cat urine odor problems for your senior kitty.
With many homes there is a garage, a basement, or an out of the way place to put a litter box. Or with some cats they can go outside to do the deed. But for many homes there is not any out of the way place. This is especially true with many apartments. In these cases the litter box has to be in your living space. Not only is this unsightly to you and a source of foul odor, it also gives a bad first impression to anyone who walks in and the first thing they see is a dirty cat box.
Remember, no one is perfect; responding appropriately to criticism can improve your copywriting. Keep trying. You will get it right. Even the best writers find their copywriting skill gets better over time.
