I moved from the country into a small apartment and our 2 female/spayed cats live in here with us. Any tricks on neutralising the odour from their litter box as much as possible? They poop like 5 times a day EACH and I can't be picking poop out tens times a day, I try to keep it down to just morning and evening, but it stinks! :-(  Do all cat owners pick the poop out 5-10 times a day? Do you just have to live with the smell? It's annoying:-(

I use a wood chip based litter, seems to absorb the smell much better than the normal stuff, I only have one cat though and she uses it 2 or 3 times per day.  If I'm here I scoop as soon as she does it but if not the wood really seems to help.

What comes out depends quite a bit on what goes in, so it might be worth experimenting with different cat foods to see which produces the most tolerable results.

Some commercial cat litters include baking soda as one of the ingredients. I wonder if it would be safe (or useful) to sprinkle the litter lightly with baking soda?
