Cat Litter Box Furniture Keeps It All Hidden
There it is right on show, your cat's litter box.
It is where it is because . . .
. . .that's where it has to be for one reason or another. Maybe your bathroom is too small to accommodate it, maybe there just is no other place.
Your cat is happy with the litter box being there and uses it and that is the most important thing.
You do wish though, that it wasn't so darn obvious.
Ever thought of cat litter box furniture?
There are many products available that hide your cat's litter tray so that it is not the first thing that guests eyes alight upon when they enter your room.
Some hidden litter box makers claim their products also mask the odor.
There is at least one model that features a carbon filter system and this may indeed greatly reduce the aroma. But as we know, the best way to keep a litter tray, whether a hidden litter box or not, smelling as sweet as possible is to clean and change it frequently.
Some cats do prefer the privacy that a hidden cat litter box or covered box provides and so take to using them straight away.
Other cats may be reluctant to use them, especially if they are used to an open tray. It may be possible with plenty of patience, to gradually introduce a reluctant cat to a hidden litter box.
When is a plant pot not a plant pot?
When it is a cunningly disguised hidden litter box.
Appearing to be a large clay pot complete with realistic looking plant, (realistic looking from across the room anyway,) this item hides your cat's litter box.
Position the pot so the opening is out of view, but ensuring that your cat can enter and exit, and you have your litter box problem covered.
A very popular style of hidden cat litter box furniture is designed to look like a wooden cabinet. Available in several finishes, mahogany, pine, white etc. and can match in with your existing furniture.
Many of the cabinets not only have space for the tray and an entrance for your cat, but also offer handy space for storing scoops, extra litter and other supplies.
There is a range of litter box furniture that are basically covers that fit right over your existing litter tray.
Many are disguised as colorful miniature buildings, a tropical hut, a surf house, a midtown brownstone, a country cottage, and so on.
Other covers are more conventional, a wicker box, an ottoman, a cloth canopy, a privacy tent. One model doubles as a washstand, more suited for hiding the litter tray in your bathroom rather than your living room.
Some cat condos could be classified as hidden litter box furniture as they have a litter tray incorporated in their design. It's another way of saving space, you don't have to find room for both a tray and a kitty condo.
As well as hiding your cat's litter tray from your guests, and allowing your feline some privacy, most litter box furniture perform a bonus function.
You know how it is, cats cover their waste.
Unfortunately all that scratching and digging does tend to scatter the granules far and wide. A covered or hidden box will help to contain the litter, cutting the time you spend cleaning up after your cat, and that can't be a bad thing.
