Disposable Litter Box And Litter — 9 Comments

  1. I agree that for temporary or emergency use they could be the ideal solution, but long term I’d rather stick with a conventional tray.

    Perhaps the manufacturers should be aiming their sales pitch towards shelters and shops selling pet products. Shelters could sell (or even include) one of the boxes as part of the adoption pack. People who live in natural disaster areas might want to keep a pack of disposable trays in case they and their cats have to evacuate their home at short notice.

      • The concept is a good one. It’s just more of a niche product and personally I’d want to recycle as much of the cardboard as possible.

        They’d have been ideal when I was moving to live in another country. Lost count of the number of litter trays I bought and then had to dump when I moved again.

  2. It’s a shame that things are being invented to make ‘cat owning’ convenient for people who shouldn’t really have a cat if they can’t make time for their fundamental needs. It should be a pleasure doing things for much loved cats. If they have disposable litter boxes to save time on chores I wonder if they will have more time to spend playing with their cat? I very much doubt it.

  3. Michael,

    I can see the usefulness of this for travel or for sick cats- that would be great for cats who may have contageous illness to just get rid of the box and its contents. But cats impregnate their litter boxes with their scent- and even if we wash them thoroughly the scent lingers and it’s their home base. Therefore I think that as a daily or weekly use it would upset the cats and throw them off kilter with a “new” box every week.

    I am all for convenience as long as it doesn’t take away from feline needs. Cats are not toys- and trying to make things easy for us- rather than easy for the cats is something for which I am not in favor.

    Not only that it is extremely pricey. I would rather spend my money on high quality cat food than disposable boxes. But I do like the idea of having something like this on hand for travel or illness.

    Keeping cats is NOT an easy task if done properly. Money needs to be spent on the cats health and wellness, imho at least.
