Where should I put the cat litter box? — 3 Comments

  1. My litter boxes are placed wherever I think my cats would use them. They are scattered everywhere, and none are in a bathroom.
    All 11 boxes are huge, at least 6-8 inches high and dimensions are around 12″ by 24″.
    It doesn’t matter where they are. It matters how diligent a caretaker is about cleaning.
    I can say that people who visit say that they would never know that I had any cats at all.

  2. I have 6cats and 6 boxes. I make my own litter boxes and they are large. There is enough room for the biggest cat to turn around comfortably. The lip of the box is low-about 1 1/2 inches, so as the cat ages he or she doesn’t have to step up far. That was especially helpful for my furkids if the developed arthritis. They are also extra tall, so I don’t have to worry about the furkids not being able to squat normally and have to stand up. I’ve been doing this for around seven or eight years and find the kids use this type of box without a problem or hesitation. Even the kitties I’ve rescued have no problem from the beginning. The only problem is finding places to put these boxes. Oh, yes, they are also covered. One box is in the master closet, one in each of the two bathrooms. One is a tight fit due to the smallness of the room. One is in the computer room, one in my room and the last is in the spare bedroom that I call the cat room. I clean the boxes at least twice daily and sometimes 3 times. There is very little to no odor. I use non scented, clumpable litter that has very little dust. I also don’t put a lot of litter in the box. Finding such a litter takes time and sometimes I have to use 2-3 brands that I mix. Since I live only with animals and very few humans are invited to visit, I can cater to my cats’ needs and desires. Most people who visit can’t tell I have 1 cat let alone 6. Any service people who come to fix anything have no idea there are cats in the house, as they all scatter to their “safe places”.

  3. We have a small unused room attached to our kitchen that is called the litter box room. We have one litter box tucked away in an inconspicuous place in our bedroom and right now since we have 10 month old Mercy there is still a litter box in the extra large crate that she still uses on occasion.
    We handle litter box smell by scooping on a regular basis. The hard smell test. Hold your breath before going in your home and then take a deep breath. If I can smell it , it’s time to scrub.
    All that said I realized when I brought housecats into my home there would be concessions on my part to keep them happy and healthy. Well fed cats in good health being fed an appropriate diet produce a great deal less stink that ones given marginal management.
