Non-scented litter is best, especially if there is a lid on the box (if you still insist on having one). Remember what the cat has to deal with in those close confines, and don’t add another complication! Many cats seem to dislike the strong perfume of some litters, and we aren’t convinced that they may not be entirely safe for kitty’s sensitive respiratory tissues.
My cat has is older and sick recently so we had to bring the litter box upstairs. We have a small home so no real good place so we decided in a corner in the kitchen. I bought a tote however I got a dark gray with a lid. Does anyone know of any problems with a dark tote and a lid? Thanks.
DIY top loading cat litter boxes! I bought two 18-gallon plastic storage containers with lids (about $7.50 each). I decided I liked the idea of using the lid to trap the spare litter crumbs, so I bought 2 feet of grey stair-tread carpet($4) to adhere to the lid with some carpet adhesive double stick tape. My total material cost for TWO boxes was less than $25 — a fraction of any of my store bought options.Using a Sharpie, I drew freehand what would be the opening. Keep in mind that you’ll want the opening high if you have a cat that pees standing up. They’ll be less likely to pee with their rear-end hanging out the door. I put the opening at the narrow end of the box because that’s what our cats are used to and I think they’re less likely to pee out the door that way. Then I carefully cut out the opening with a utility knife. (Another option would be to cut the opening in the lid so that it looked something like )So first, I made an appointment with our vet to have the cats checked out since And I bought a new litter box. The cats both got clean bills of health, but the stand-up peeing started happening more often. The new litter box leaked urine where the hood met the lid and made a smelly mess. I bought another litter box which had the hood sitting within the lip of the lower pan. Now the urine didn’t leak out of the box, but I had to clean the hood and the lip of the lower pan everyday. This was not working and we were out $60 on useless litter boxes.I gave up on the typical cat litter box and started using a big tub. I love it. No mess outside of the tub and with the lid the cats have privacy.That’s all it takes! Fill the box with cat litter and replace lid for a covered litter box or leave it off if your cats prefer. Here are some thumbnails of how mine turned out.Non-scentedis best, especially if there is a lid on the box. Remember what the cathas to deal with in those close confines.
