I’m a dog person. My son, however couldn’t resist the lure of kittens after a neighborhood stray decided to bring her kittens to live on our front porch. Who could resist. We caught and fixed all of the cats/kittens. When we moved we brought two with us, leaving the other two to keep my dad company.
I never thought I would own a litter box (so gross) but now that I do I wanted to make the best of it. I went in search of some way to disguise our litter box. I’m not clever enough to build my own from scratch, but fortunately there were tons of inexpensive options on Etsy, Wafair and Overstock.
Here are the options that I liked the most.
Litter Box Furniture Criteria
If you are considering buying one of these I recommend considering these features. Yes, I too feel compelled to laugh at this, but if you are going to commit you should consider the facts.
1.) Does it have a space between the litter box and the exit to catch litter. I find the little bits of cat litter that get on the floor to be totally gross. I don’t want to see that or feel it on my feet. If you have the space, get one with two compartments so one will catch the exit litter.
2.) Which way to the doors open? I wanted to make mine look like a bench with plants and a pillow on top. For that reason, I wanted one that opened from the front so I don’t have to empty it each time I want to scoop (which is daily).
3.) Room for storage. I wanted a box that would hold the nasty scoop inside so I don’t have to find a place to stash it. This might be too much but I love this “Antimicrobial Scoop & Caddy“. I love the idea but what in the heck does that mean? The cat poop scoop won’t have germs on it? Some of the furniture has enough space to hold spare litter, which is also nice.
Review of the Cat Washroom
I purchased the cat washroom from overstock. Pros: it had the pass-through area that will hopefully catch all of the litter when she steps out. It opened in front, which I wanted. The con: It was a lot of pieces, but it didn’t take that long to put together.
I would buy it again. Would I get the cat again? That is the question. I wish I could trade him for a cat that woke up later.
