  1. Buy him a covered litter box (like this ). Put in in a corner of a room, or between the end of a couch / cabinet and wall. Cats feel vulnerable when eating, drinking and pooping, so give him a safe space.

  2. Clean up after the fucking cat! He looks like he needs to be rescued from that literal shit hole.
u/far2frail · 18 pointsr/cats

One of our kitties had this issue too. He'd passionately kick litter all over the bathroom. I got a high-sided litter box like this and put a litter mat in front of it, and it was no longer a problem.

u/jhonotan1 · 12 pointsr/AnimalsBeingJerks

My cat is the same, except he'll poop in the box once per litter change. I could go and scoop the turd seconds after it lands, and he still will shit on the floor until I change out all of the litter. All of that would be manageable if I could just use a small bit of litter, but noooooooo...Princess and the Poop needs a thick and lush pile, otherwise he'll pee everywhere. So, we've had the choice between picking up turds off the bathroom floor, or dealing with pee anywhere in the house.

The real game changer was this litter box, for some reason. I don't even clean it more often, but somehow he's able to poop in it three days in a row without cleaning it, so that's nice.

u/mechanismen · 12 pointsr/Catculations

Don't ask me what I googled but I managed to find it:

u/StrahdVonChairovich · 10 pointsr/functionalprint

This is what we have for our 6 cats. It takes me less than 5 minutes to clean all 8 of them.

u/The-Dudemeister · 9 pointsr/pics

Price of owning kitten: $60 to buy includes all shots

flushable litter: $34 for 32 lbs at local shop; last for 4 months (called worlds best litter: ) This is the best litter you can get. Trust me on that; plus you can flush it and it won't go bad over time like others.

food: Evo cat food $35 for 15 lbs at local pet shop. Feed 1/4 cup twice a day. This will last 2 months according to food regulation. Note: you shouldn't let your cat gorge, it will get fat and poop alot so regulating it will make poop duty easier and save you money on litter and food. I recommend this because it has very little grain which is why the cat doesn't have to eat much. It's also as healthy as it gets, so you save money in the long run vs friskies or something.

Litter box: top entry Top entry causes the cat not to make a mess using the litter (when it kicks it up)

I'd go with an adult cat for your first so you don't have to deal with the kitten phase plus usually they are already housebroken. So all in all its actually affordable if you can commit to it.

u/reddit_is_not_evil · 9 pointsr/therewasanattempt

> Mine puke when I put more food in their bowl.

One of ours did this. He would gorge on the new food and vomit it up five minutes later, to the delight of our other one. This fixed that. Now he only vomits hairballs and people food, when he is able to sneak some.

>My gfs cat pisses high in the litter box

We had this problem too, and one of our cats rejects covered litterboxes (probably the same little shit who pisses too high). These fixed it.

u/sdkingv · 9 pointsr/Rabbits

Hi! Your bun looks exactly like my bun Horchata when he was younger

here he is!

When he was smaller we built him a living space with storage cubes and it worked really well. You just buy a pack of cubes and some zipties off Amazon, then cut up an ikea floor mat for the ground. We just made him a house out of cardboard. Make sure there are 2 exits for the house.

Also if you have lots of space you can do an X-pen . (This is a taller foldable fence that most people are suggesting here). That is probably the most popular idea on here too as it gives them more room to run around and be active. Our guy was free roam and only really went into the cage when sleeping.

You’ll also need a litter box that they can get in and out of easy, I recommend something similar to these just line the tray with shredded compostable litter and and bunch of hay, it’s almost a requirement for them to eat hay while the go to the bathroom. If she isn’t potty trained, having the hay only in the litter box is a great way to get them started as they eat hay all day long and will tend to go where the hay is.

Hope this all helps!

u/sethra007 · 8 pointsr/hoarding

> What brand is the best?

What sort of cat litter are your cats used to?

For example, my cat liked the clay based cat litter, and wouldn't use the wood or paper based litter. I used Tidy Cats with a litter box liner.

If your cats are used to a certain type of litter (like, your mom buys different brands, but it's always a clay-based litter), make sure you stick with that material.

I also used a covered cat litter box and a litter mat.

Finally, I scooped 2x/day: once in the AM, once in the PM. And that was for ONE cat. Overkill? Maybe, but my house never smelled of cat urine or poo.

As a rule, cats don't like to pee/poo where other cats have gone, so I highly recommend you get two appropriately-sized boxed, box liners, and litter, and see how it goes. You might get lucky, or you might need to get a 3rd box. And start scooping on a regular schedule: I scooped right before I went to work, and right after I got home.

u/Danyn · 8 pointsr/AnimalsBeingJerks
u/CatPower23 · 7 pointsr/yoga
u/Brady_scorned · 6 pointsr/Dogtraining

We use a litter box with a lid. It's the "booda", it think the dog is too scared of the lid to get too far into it and the cat seems happy I have the privacy.

u/Aleriya · 6 pointsr/Pets

I bought one of these and really like it:

I put it in a corner and point the entrance toward a corner, so most people don't realize it's a litter box.

u/ecofriend94 · 6 pointsr/Rabbits

I am very confused by this photo, why is there a plastic bag in her enclosure?


I am not a fan of the corner litter boxes like that is because I do not think they have enough space for them to move around, even the large ones. My buns is a high-top cat litter box, with a big pile of hay stacked in front of the "entrance." I like that it is large and a rectangular so the hay can be inside the box and the bun doesn't have to reach for a bowl or rack. :)


My bun sits in his box for a long time munching on hay, I personally wouldn't want him to have to stand on a grate that long. Unless your bun digs in the hay or pushes it out of the box I wouldn't recommend a grate. If you let them roam outside of their designated room, say in your living room, a grate set up could help with the mess. I wouldn't put the grate set-up in boxes that they use often such as the one in their enclosure and in their room.

u/hindler2010 · 5 pointsr/cats

I would recommend this litter box. Looks awesome and is excellent for keeping in the litter bits. For litter I use ones that are low dust and made for small spaces and multi cats even tho i only have one :)

u/TheSoundAurora · 5 pointsr/MEOW_IRL
u/echointexas · 5 pointsr/aww

Enter-through-the-top litter boxes are the best (and only) solution I found to my kitten being a litter digger/player. I don't have this brand, but you get the idea:

u/All_that_I_am · 5 pointsr/Pets

We have a CleverCat top entry box for our 15 lb digging maniac. He's a pain in the ass and gets cranky if the litter isn't at least 6" deep, but it's a deep enough container that it can be deep and still leave plenty of room for him to get in there and get comfortable.

u/vetgirl8 · 5 pointsr/Pets

I don't know about the rest of your problems except to say that every cat is different and she needs more attention than your other cat. But for the litter box, this saved my feet from litter in the bathroom. Worth every penny. I read reviews of people who tried to make their own and they said it just wasn't as good.

u/GammaTainted · 5 pointsr/TrollXFunny

The package for the pellets says "Breeze". This looks like the one.

u/thinkforaminute · 5 pointsr/cats

You can get inexpensive boxes with a sidewall like this:

It's a little small for big cats but will do for kittens and regular sized cats. Catboxes with hoods are generally not recommended because they tend to be small and capture dust from scratching. Plus, it's not fun to hunch over while shitting.

u/bammyhammy · 4 pointsr/Pets

My cat has had this litter box for about a year and a half and I only have to vacuum once a week or every other week. The stairs help get the litter off his feet and compared to the mess of the standard litter boxes i say it helps considerably.

u/JulieCakes · 4 pointsr/Pets

Have you looked into Top Entry litter boxes? Not sure if that would work for your space, but they work great keeping EVERYTHING in. Litter too, since the cats have to jump out, there's less tracking!

u/hackjandy · 4 pointsr/indianapolis

We also have three cats. We have big ass litter boxes

To get an idea of how big they are, look at the pictures in the reviews of kids sitting in them.

We also use crystal litter

We found this litter lasts a ton longer. It's no barrel, but maybe worth checking out.

u/abruptmodulation · 4 pointsr/yoga

Thank you! And yes - totally a litter box; very favorable to my cats.

I got it from Amazon

:) After looking at the promo pics, I realize the branches and leaves have gotten a bit janky over time. I'm brainstorming how to replace, which should be fairly easy. I'm feeling inspired to get all sorts of fake foliage now.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/LifeProTips

Buy a Furminator from amazon. there's like 5,000 5-star reviews and it really is amazing. medium size is good for cats. I also bought a litter box that has side walls for $9, so the litter stays in, and if you put a plastic litter liner, then clean up will be a breeze. No litter comes out and you pick up the mess easily.


Yikes! the Furminator is going up for $26 but you might want to look into the cheaper alternatives

u/DinkaAnimalLover · 4 pointsr/Rabbits

You can use a litter box like this one (example here) - it's transparent so you can still monitor poops, but less spreading.

Use a hayrack to minimize the mess like here


Also provide a dedicated digging box so she makes the mess in there only


Invest into a good vacuum:

  1. Shop vac is on the cheaper side - it's great, fantastic sucking, sucks up all the hay and never gets clogged
  2. Miele is on the expensive side - but great with hair and good for people with allergies


    For quick pick me up this lint roller is great
u/mydarlingmuse · 4 pointsr/ragdolls

I got one of these for mine, in the larger size. It's the biggest box I've had for any of my cats, and I love that it's top entry (so much less litter everywhere). It might take a little getting used to for your furkids to jump into, but I love it so far.

u/Viper999DC · 3 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

I bought one of these and it really reduced the amount of litter outside of the box:

The ramp does a decent-enough job of cleaning her paws on the way out.

u/VironicHero · 3 pointsr/Rabbits

We have a litter digger so we got this covered litter box:

Petmate Booda Dome Cleanstep Cat Box, Brushed Nickel

He can dig all he wants and it stays in the box. The stairs also seem to catch most of the litter they would normally track put.

You should think about getting a roomba, it helps with any litter that gets put and picks up the massive amount of fur they seem to always be shedding!

u/Prahksi · 3 pointsr/Parenting

This helped cut down on my litter everywhere problem: Petmate Booda Dome Cleanstep Cat Box, Brushed Nickel

u/e_claire · 3 pointsr/Pets

For the litter tracking problem I'd recommend a top-loading litter box or just buy a large plastic bin and carve a hole out of the top if you're handy with tools. This almost completely eliminated the litter tracking problem in my house with two cats.

As for spilling water, I would suggest getting a heavier ceramic water bowl with non-slip feet and placing it on a feeding mat. You could even invest a pet water fountain like this one (which are large and virtually impossible to knock down) if you find that your cats enjoy running water more than standing water.

u/smigbop · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

They make some like that, we had this one for my old cat (rip gilbert). He loved to toss litter around and this helped a lot but it was a bit of a pain to clean, but then what litter box isn't?

u/carissalf · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This unsightly thing actually worked surprisingly well. Generally, dogs hate sticking their heads in small spaces like that. So, even when she's older, she'll likely leave it alone.

There are a plenty of others, but they can be rather costly. If you're crafty, you could always design something around it too. I'm not, so that was out of the question.

u/cordial_carbonara · 3 pointsr/Parenting

I do the same, I've got mine in the laundry room with cat door. I use one of those litter catching mats, combined with an extra tall litter box (you might even consider a setup like this). I also vacuum the room regularly, because my cat is just ridiculously messy no matter what we do.

u/sumwaah · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

Use the Clevercat litter box:

I switched to this when I had my cat track litter all over the place from his usual front entry litter box. The top entry for this prevents him from throwing litter out while burying his poop and the grooves on the top scrape off litter that is stuck on his feet. Pair the litter box with a mat/pad and you will have little or no litter in the rest of your house. Bonus: If you have a dog, this box will stop them from getting into the kitty litter for treats.

u/Beemorriscats · 3 pointsr/daddit

Ever seen a top entry litterbox? Your son might be compelled to toss a toy into the hole, but he himself wouldn't have access to it. Plus it keeps cats from flinging litter everywhere, win-win.

u/mischiffmaker · 3 pointsr/cats

Cats are like people, they do have preferences. Generally they go for the person feeding them (they are little predators, after all).

'Play fighting' is how cats learn to hunt--kittens do it with each other to learn how to stalk and pounce on their prey.

When they lick you after grabbing and kicking, it's what cats do with their prey once they've caught it--kicking simulates disemboweling their prey.

My new cat likes to bite--I've been having to caution her to go "Easy!" which she's getting better at. Once she's given a couple of 'love bites' she bites once more, gives her head a little shake while she still has my skin in her teeth, then lets go and licks the spot. What she's doing is simulating giving the death shake to a small prey animal.

If your cat turns out to be a hunter, and brings you dead animals, that's not so much a gift, as such, as her teaching you how to hunt, like she would a kitten. They do this even though you're the one putting food down for them.

Litter changing depends on the cat. Some cats go more than others and the litter has to be cleaned more often. I use the Breeze litter system, which I like because there's significantly less smell than the sand or clay systems, even the clumping kind. Plus not having to hump heavy buckets of sand around is nice. There are lots of reviews in that link, and some people use inexpensive pellets used for pellet stoves, but I haven't tried that.

Enjoy being a cat-dad!

u/619shepard · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Start by getting this litter box which will change everything forever.

Keep your house very clean, but avoid using harsh chemicals. Vinegar cleans like 90% of things amazingly. The smell is distinctive and sharp, but fades very quickly especially for well vented areas.

Then get essential oil burners or reed infusers. Decide what smells you like. Very popular smells around spas include lavender, eucalyptus (careful, you may be allergic), sandalwood, sage.

If you can grow some house plants that are known for cleaning the air just be careful, as some of them are not very good for pets.

u/fauxcrow · 3 pointsr/randomactsofamazon

Awwww...that is a super - gorgeous kitty!!

I have had rescue kitties and fosters for years, this changed my life and made kitty ownership 1000x more enjoyable! Tidy Cats Cat Litter, Breeze, Litter Box Kit System, 1 Kit

Enjoy that pretty kitty!!

u/Jacollinsver · 3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

So I got this cat box for a while, and its great, but I've moved into a new place where it sits near my toilet so I was hoping I could flush the turds instead of eating them like I normally do. The litter isn't normal though: its little ceramic pellets so that the pee can trickle down to the pad below.

u/PJsAreComfy · 3 pointsr/Pets

A litter box with higher sides might help. (My cat did the same thing with low-sided boxes.) Here are two examples: #1, #2.

u/MinnowG · 3 pointsr/mainecoons

You could try a litterbox that has high sides, but is open at the top. Sort of best of both worlds. Here's an example:

u/BrickGun · 3 pointsr/CatsAreAssholes

Please, for all that is right and holy in the universe, get a covered litter box. (Not just for the scatter, but for the sight and smell as well)

u/Hameen · 3 pointsr/INEEEEDIT

I had something similar and it worked okay. It really wasn't tall enough for them so they always ended up going in the same spot with their head poking out the top hole. When they were done they would launch themselves out like a rocket spraying litter EVERYWHERE. Maybe if our cats weren't spazzes and daintily climbed out it would have worked better.

What I ended up doing was chucking those and getting [this litter box]
( (I'm sure any one with a front flap would do just as well) and I already had purchased these mats. I put the boxes in the corners of our spare rooms pointing at a wall with a foot or so of space between the box and the wall. This stopped them from running out of the box into the room making a mess and forced them to exit the box a little slower. It still doesn't catch ALL the litter, but the amount sprayed/tracked all over the room has significantly decreased.

u/oie3000 · 3 pointsr/seniorkitties

Maybe her change in behavior is caused by her medications (vidalta, antibiotic) interacting with each other and causing dementia-like symptoms. I know for sure that this can happen with older people. For her peeing outside the litter box, try a box that's easier for her to enter, such as Best of luck!

u/Ritz527 · 3 pointsr/aww
u/SWGoodToes · 3 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

NTA - get a small, nice-looking top-entry box like this one, and she probably won’t even notice it:

IRIS Top Entry Cat Litter Box with Cat Litter Scoop, White & Beige

The top entry prevents all that litter tracking all over the floor and contains a lot of the smell (though it’s still important to clean regularly)

u/fleshyflowers · 3 pointsr/ZeroWaste

I have a sifting litter box (like this one) and have been using Exquisicat Pine Cobble and it has been working out great!

(Edit: My bad for the double post! Meant to reply to comment above!)

u/AwfulWaffleWalker · 3 pointsr/CatsAreAssholes

Link. Arm & hammer also makes one.

u/TwlStED_CaPtaIN · 3 pointsr/AnimalsBeingJerks

I would recommend this one

IRIS Top Entry Cat Litter Box with Cat Litter Scoop, Black & Gray

u/xX_Justin_Xx · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Not for me... well kinda. It is for my cat. She needs a new one.... bad. LOL conviviality Thanks for doing a contest!!!!

u/FestiveFerret · 2 pointsr/cats

Or one with a lid? They make this one box with little stairs that turns into a dome...let me see if I can find it....this one!

u/LyphBB · 2 pointsr/cats

This is the litter bin that solved our problem, having to go around a corner seemed to stop the litter being spread around.

Petmate Booda Dome Clean Step Cat Litter Box 3 Colors

u/Lush_Fusion · 2 pointsr/AnimalsBeingJerks

Recommend the Booda Cleanstep it means they have to go up some stairs and round a corner so the cats can’t pee/poo out of the box.

u/dorenello · 2 pointsr/CatAdvice

are you sure she is pooping in the box? if so, a Booda Dome Box might work and an automatic box should work. maybe any hooded box would work.

u/sneaky_dragon · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

Try covered cat litter boxes. Bunnies can use cat pans, and covered litter boxes are basically a cat pan with a cover. Take a look at this section of the litter box wiki article we wrote up.

edit:// just realized you said you wanted a lowered entrance. haha. you can always do some DIY and cut out part of a box to make your own entryway. :) it's only plastic.

edit 2:// looked on amazon real quickly, what about this? and bunnies like to hop, so you shouldn't really need to worry about non-lowered edges until your bun is old. :)

u/kittensinadumpster · 2 pointsr/Pets

A booda dome. I have a couple and I love them for reduced litter tracking.

u/Daff0dillpickles · 2 pointsr/Parenting

One of the things we invested in was [Buddha boxes](Petmate Booda Dome Cleanstep Cat Box, Brushed Nickel It's a litter box shaped like a dome with an opening only big enough for a cat. It has a filter on top to helo with smell! Litter boxes are in the bathrooms with flushable litter. Just scoop once a day and flush it!

As for hair and throwing up, it sounds like stress. You're stressed out, baby is stressed out, cat is stressed out! Our cats get this way whenever they see moving boxes :( We switched to Authority brand cat food, specifically the brand for stomach issues/hair balls. That and lots if brushy posts/scratchers! I'd also make sure there is a space/room where the cats go that little feet can't! That way they have a calm space where they can relax.

Stressed/mean cats are no fun, so no wonder you don't like them right now! They may not like you for bringing a little typhoon into their house :P If the problems persist, you may want to think about rehoming them :( It sucks, but it might be best for all involved.

u/something____wicked · 2 pointsr/puppy101

There are a few solutions to this.

One, you can install a baby gate across the doorway of the bathroom. They make baby gates with cat doors, like this one:

So you can leave the cat door open but your dog won't fit through (assuming he isn't a tiny dog).

You can also, if you think your cat will tolerate it, switch to a covered litterbox. I use one like this:

It contains the smell MUCH better than open litterboxes and a dog won't fit up the steps. My cat isn't fussy about her box and will use open or closed ones, so test that out on your cats.

There are also a variety of top entry litterboxes (e.g. that you might want to experiment with.

u/sparrowmint · 2 pointsr/RandomActsOfPetFood You might want to add this one to your wishlist instead. It's available through Amazon's free shipping, and the one on your wishlist isn't. People on here seem to prefer the Prime shipping, usually.

u/bitterred · 2 pointsr/waiting_to_try
u/sara_shortcake · 2 pointsr/dogs

We had the Clever Cat top entry litter box for a long time for this same reason and it worked awesome. But when we decided to try the Breeze system we just installed a cat door so the cats could get in and out of the bathroom without dog interference.

u/censorinus · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

Yeah, she uses a vertical entry one, it's down below in the link. works really well, much less mess to clean up. She will go outside from time to time when I take her on walks but usually uses the litter box.

This is it on Amazon, I've found it for less in Mud Bay Granary tho so check around. Cleanest litter box I've found.

u/charcuterie_bored · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I've been thinking about getting a top entry litterbox for when my son gets mobile

u/schaefer · 2 pointsr/Pets

If I'm understanding you properly, I had a similar problem. I took down the baby gate, got a Clevercat litter box that the dog can't get into, and got a small ikea end table to put the cat food on. So now the dog can get in the room, but can't get into the litter box or their food. Clevercat:

u/DoctorMrsMonarch · 2 pointsr/Pets

Sometimes things changing can make cats poop outside of their litter boxes - has anything happened in the house that has changed? Baby, new person, other cat, etc.?

Also, I know it seems weird but with cats with a history of not-using-litter, vets are starting to prescribe Fluoxetine (Prozac), so you may want to discuss that with your vet in case it may make a difference.

It's best to keep the litter box in the same places - quiet places that are away from the normal pathways of people. You could even try a top-entering litter box, like this one: CleverCat. This would create his own little confined poop area.

Keep us posted! Let us know if you have any more questions.

u/dmcindc · 2 pointsr/cats

Well, until she stops peeing outside of the litter box, I would advise you to take the covers off all of them. She's not going to want to use one uncovered box if the other cat is bullying her near it. Best to make sure she has options, just in case.

Look into getting a Clever Cat litter box.

You can take the cover off and the sides are high, to prevent a cat from bothering another cat inside, and the high sides is also good for high female pee'ers. But overall, without the lid, there's not just one small opening to get trapped inside with and lots of room to get out. Over time, you can slowly try putting the lid back on, or just put it on top when you have company over.

u/hoppierthanthou · 2 pointsr/MEOW_IRL

I didn't pay $40 for mine, but these are the shit.

u/koalapants · 2 pointsr/aww

Ever considered a top entry litter box? There are cheaper ones than this, or also DIY, but it would save the constant cleanup if he took to it.

u/CorporateDroneStrike · 2 pointsr/cats
  1. An adult cat can probably tolerate for it about 3 days, on an infrequent basis. It is pretty dependent on the personality of your cat - some cats might act out destructively or gobble all their food. Most cats can regulate eating dry food so you can put a lot out at once. They definitely won't guzzle water for fun, so just put out an extra bowl. Destructive behavior from boredom can be managed with some interactive toys - maybe a Kong treat ball ect. Unless your cat has some issues, 1 litter box scooped once per day should be fine. I have 2 cats and we sometimes skip a day- nbd.


  2. I spend about $10 a month for food (Taste of the Wild) and maybe the same on litter (Tidy Cats clumping) for each cat per month. So $20. I would plan on some start up costs for scratching posts, toys, and a litter pan. I tended to go high end on these:

    But it's not a requirement. That scratching post is great though because it's nice and big, and indestructible. Also, I urge you to get sisal scratches because the texture is more unique. Carpet style scratchers teach your cat that similar fabrics are for scratching... As for vet visits, I would just make sure you have a credit card. A healthy cat, who doesn't go outside or get fleas/worms from other pets, is probably not going to cost you much. Spaying/neutering is a one-time expense, that may be taken care of by the shelter, and there are groups that do it for around $35-60.


  3. Domestic mongrel 100%. They are going to be healthier in expectation, and I'm not a fan of the breeding industry. As for adult vs kitten - it's hard to say. Adult cats have more fixed personalities, that can include bad habits. Kittens have random personalities but you have a chance to influence them and for the two of you to gel. Look into local shelters to see if you can foster - that way you can make sure you have a good fit without committing. If you foster kittens, get at least 3. If you get a pair, you have a higher chance of keeping both.

u/deathweasel · 2 pointsr/Dachshund

My old guy was way too interested in the cat poop too. I would suggest you get or make a top entry litter box like this one.

u/horsewish · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Ours started digging out all of the litter onto the floor and using it there. I was so pissed! After 3 weeks of dealing with it and scrubbing the floor with natures miracle every couple of days, we bought one of these. It has definitely helped quite a bit with their bathroom behavior.

u/Aloof_pooch · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

We have one similar to this.

u/mallybear69 · 2 pointsr/Pets

Definitely invest in a top-entry litter box. You can just take the top off and your cat should be ok to use it. We tried this with my cat and it made a world of difference.

u/WhoAreYouWhoAmI · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

I use the Clever Cat box.

u/robnelle · 2 pointsr/funny

Ha! Friendly need a new litter box with taller walls. Something like a Clever Cat litter box.

It's not cheap but it is worth the money!

u/GeekAndDestroy · 2 pointsr/lifehacks

This wouldn't work for me. One of cats loves to dig. Before I started giving her access to the back yard, she would spend up to a half hour at a time just digging in the box. Even the boxes with a flap couldn't keep the litter in the box. I ended up making one of these ( out of a $5 Sterilite container, and it works perfectly. Very little litter gets out of the box at all.

u/DavidWaldron · 2 pointsr/DIY

Yeah, my cats would refuse to use a small enclosed box like this. They use the Giant Litter Pan from Petmate.

u/WHUColin · 2 pointsr/ragdolls

My guy is incredibly fussy about there being ANYTHING inside the litter box. In the end I bought a giant litter box that allows him some space. Granted, it is cleaned multiple times a day but nice if we are out a couple hours. Very happy with it, and he seems to be as well.

u/katrav · 2 pointsr/mainecoons

Not sure of your budget, but I love this one.

Check the measurements vs your current though. If she's a really big girl, it might be too small.

u/canofpotatoes · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

This is the one I have in my 420 sq ft apartment. It's angled in a corner and you would never know it's a litter box. Many people ask where I keep mine. It is pretty large though, not exceedingly large but bigger than I expected. Holds a good amount of litter and is easy to clean, two halves split at the equator. I've gotten a fuller fake plent to rest on top, the one it comes with isn't terrible but I wanted to find something that was more life-like.

u/TehKarmah · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

did you have a long hair bun? I have an Angora a d got her a cat litter box that allows the urine to drop onto a wee pad below. It's super easy to keep clean. They're less than $30 on Amazon and you can get wee pads at Costco for cheap.

u/eaktheperson · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I wrote this a while back... referencing this system. Essentially, it's almost dust free, and almost odorless.

"This system is actually fantastic. Minimal smell compared to regular cat litter. Moreover, easier (although a bit more complicated) set up. Not to mention almost no tracking (outside a rouge pellet).

Now I'm going to sound like a shill, however I swear by this system, it's helped me become more tolerant of cats. Once while we were having a party my Mother-in-law comes up to me and asks me where we hid the cat litter? It was a new place and at first she thought we left the cat behind (and was giving me hell about it), however there he was. She couldn't smell it at all, meanwhile I pointed down and she was pretty much standing right next to it. As long as it's clean (solid waste) it has almost no odor. It only smells shortly after he's gone, which is a trend that seems to span the entire animal kingdom."

Likewise, maybe a pc fan with a bit of filter element strapped on via a rubber band and for extra points a occupancy sensor.

A new litter box! My kitty has some intestinal issues that make his poops smell pretty rank, and he drinks a lot of water to help his tummy making him pee A LOT and he is a big cat so these are like big urinations. Regular litter just doesn't cut it after only a couple of days of changing it. Plus he tracks it EVERYWHERE. I hear this litter box is great for odor control AND tracking. It would be absolutely wonderful to have it because the normal litter just isn't working anymore. Plus I think my roommate would appreciate it as well.

Mine used to the same thing. When he was younger, he sprayed litter all the way across the kitchen floor once when he was doing his combination kitty dirtbiking and treasure bury. He's calmed down some since then, though still spends a long time burying. I have a combination litter mat in front of the box, and bought these, which helps a lot. There's still a little tracking because paws, but it's nowhere near the mess that it used to be.

u/lilj0nyeah · 2 pointsr/cats

I have a recommendation from a vet-student of mine: Purina Pro-Plan. It encompasses extremely high-quality ingredients, affordable prices and various flavors/specialty blends. The dry food or wet variant are both excellent for your kitty, but the dry food will be cheaper. I would use the wet food if the kitty doesn't adhere well to drinking water as the wet-food contains high amounts of water. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask. Congratulations on becoming a kitty owner!

Here are my recommendations on supplies:

Litter box:

Litter scooper:

Litter: (cheaper if you buy this one at PetSmart believe it or not)

Kitten food:

Litter mat:

u/tasunder · 2 pointsr/CatAdvice

With one small litterbox and two cats inevitably they will be stepping on clumps as they pee unless you scoop at least 3 times per day. I assume you scoop when you vacuum but if not, you probably will need to.


There are litterboxes with high sides that aren't top-entry. Here is one well-reviewed unit. That's what I currently use now that I have only one cat. I did take the door off, though. Here's another one.

u/moregrits · 2 pointsr/wholesomememes

Yep! It's this one

u/ViciousJungleChicken · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Crazy cat lady here, I have four in my apartment. Unless they are lying to me, everyone that comes over is always shocked I have cats because it doesn't smell like it "should". I have two air purifiers in the house these and I have this one that sits directly on top of the litter box. I've had my four cats around 10 years and also fostered probably about... 30. So I feel like I've tried it all and I finally have a good ritual and set up. I use this litter box because it's big and tall which they prefer but also easy to get inside when it's time to clean. I use this track mat because so far it's really done the best to keep the litter from traveling far from the box. And like you, I clean it 2-3 times a day. The litter that is. I use this litter which is LIGHT YEARS better than anything else I've ever used. One of my cats also has horrible allergies and this is the one litter I've found that she doesn't react to. It also doesn't dust so you don't have to constantly feel like poofs of litter are showing up around the house or on the carpet or furniture. I also vacuum every single day. I have one vacuum I use for the floor where there may be litter tracked and another I use that never touches litter. I think this is fairly important. This vacuum honestly is the best I've found for hair. Miracle worker. Unless you can afford the Dyson Animal. I also have this spray that I'll use for my carpet and fabric once a month or so and I feel like it makes a huge difference. And then lastly I also keep windows open whenever I can and I have this diffuser and put oil in it a few times a week and let it run for a bit, plus it looks cool with the lights :) Oh! and one last thing that I think is great... put one of those cardboard scratch pads near the litter box so the cat has to step over it to get anywhere else. Like off the track mat but near the box. I do this and all the cats inevitably use the scratch pad for fun when walking by it but I'm convinced it also cleans their paws from any litter left over before they start walking around the rest of the house!

u/peppermintlemon · 2 pointsr/ragdolls

I use the Nature's Miracle Advanced Corner Hooded litter box for my 7 month ragdoll boy. It works pretty well for me, I haven't had any issues.

u/BravesMaedchen · 2 pointsr/Pets

My cat was having a similar issue. I got a litter box with high sides and a walk-in opening like this and a really large base for a dog crate like this to put underneath the litter box. It really helps keep the pee inside the box and off the floor.
Old cats require a lot of maintenance.

u/badlcuk · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

Yes, you can retrain your adult dog to use indoor solutions :) I like doggy litter boxes but you can also go with a lawn style potty area. I dont really suggest pads as I find they are similar texture to carpet and that can be an issue (at least for puppies), but its up to you. These things are typically what I see locally used by seniors as nice solutions when they cannot go out as much or as fast as they would like.

u/cas_hills · 2 pointsr/cats

I’ve seen a lot of people post about using pine pellets with great success (apparently even the wood stove pellets would work). They’re cheaper than the feline pellets that are marketed for cats and do the same thing. I haven’t used them (I will be though!) but that seems like a good solution for you to mask the smell without the fake smell and not being a mess. They disintegrate and the sawdust will sink to the bottom so it shouldn’t be as messy.
Also I’ve read that sprinkling some baking powder in the litter box also helps with the smell.

You could also try a litter box like this. Should help from getting litter everywhere especially if you use it with the pine pellets. Good luck!

u/bellossomraptor · 2 pointsr/cats

I have a top-entry, not that exact one but one like it. Of my 3 cats, one of them prefers the top-entry to all others, one of them will use the top-entry but it's not his go-to, and the third won't use it at all. The one who likes the top-entry best is my big boy who is not only large for a domestic shorthair but also, despite my best efforts, fat. He fits in it just fine, I think the top-entry box I use could fit my parents' Maine Coon comfortably.

I would be more concerned about your senior and the kitten. The kitten may not be big enough to handle the jump out of the box, and the senior cat's abilities depend on their condition. My senior is the one who won't use it.

u/astanix · 2 pointsr/mechanical_gifs

I started using these sifting litter pans and they make doing the litter so much faster and easier.

u/cannibalkoala · 2 pointsr/Pets

Don't get me wrong, I hate scooping the litter box as much as the next person, but those things are so expensive! If you're looking for convenience, why not try one of those trays that you put in your litter box that once you pull back out catches all the chunks? Like this for example :

Seems cheaper and about as useful

u/becauseineedone3 · 2 pointsr/EOOD

This new Arm & Hammer litter box is pretty awesome. No more scooping.

u/hermitsociety · 2 pointsr/CatAdvice

I suuuuuper love my sifting litter box because it makes the job fast and easy. I don't remember the brand I have but it's just like this:

I got one at Walmart and it was cheap. It takes literally ten seconds to get every clump. I sift it daily, and on weekends I dump the whole thing, hose it, start fresh. I will never buy another fancy one again.

I rent and the only good spot for a box is in my kitchen, where a dishwasher should be. It turns out that having it there is great because I can't ignore it and the trash is right there. "Out of sight out of mind" isn't helping you so maybe consider moving the box or moving one of your regular chores or hobbies to the basement so you have to go down there more. Tie it mentally to something else you already do. I sift mine when I'm waiting for tea water to boil in the AM and dump it when I start laundry on Sundays. You just have to find a way to get it in the routine is all.

u/kiwihead · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Yeah I wouldn't sleep in the same room as my printers either :)

As for the dust issue.. we pretty much solved it by buying a litter box with a lid and a door, that might be worth a try.

You can get a litter box that your cat enters from the top. One with a flap might work as well.

u/larry_pancake · 1 pointr/felinebehavior

Oh man, have I been there. One of my furballs was determined to pee out the side of the litterbox. Every. Single. Time. I fixed this by getting one of those dome-shaped litter boxes (like this: with a built-in stair case that leads into it. Now she has to walk inside the litter box in order to get to the litter, and she can't pee out the side.

If you don't suspect mobility problems, you might also try a litter box with a top-entry--enclosed on all sides, and the cat has to jump down into it to use it.

u/onomatopria · 1 pointr/CatAdvice

Oh, an igloo like this might be a good choice. You might have to clean the sides and steps every so often, but if it helps get the poop off the feet, it might be easier than your entire bathroom.

Even though your cat’s poops appear normal, it might be worth bringing it up the next time you see your vet. They might have food recommendations that would result in more solid cleaner poops.

u/david_edmeades · 1 pointr/cats

The Tidy Cat Breeze isn't covered but it has three high sides and uses large hard clay pellets that don't spread as easily as litter does.

Alternately, I use a big dome box with a staircase, but that might be too complicated.

u/homehealthgirl · 1 pointr/dogs

Honestly? I put it in area where the dogs can't reach. It's facing the wall so the cat jumps on the lid, then goes in. It works for her, but wouldn't for all dogs.

You say import fees are $4.45, so shipping is $181.69? Have you checked by actually going to checkout to see if the shipping is really that high instead of being just a display bug on the product page?

In case it is helpful for comparison, for me to Finland it shows $35.99 + $82.10, with the shipping being $59.24 and Import Fees Deposit being $22.86, and that seems consistent with shipping rates to Finland, as $12.99 + 10.3 lbs * $4.49/lbs = $59.24.

So the issue seems to not be universal as I'm seeing the correct rate. Maybe it is specific to Canada.

u/giam86 · 1 pointr/cats

Me and you are in the same boat! As of about 2 weeks ago, one of my siamese (I have 2) has started pooping right outside the litter box. The litter box is in a cabinet, so literally he or she is pooping 2 steps away from the actual box. The cats are only 5 so getting in and out of the box isn't the issue. I'm wondering if mine has to do with the fact that I had to throw away a scratch post that one of my cats loved. The one cat will only use a carpet scratch post whereas the other cats likes the rope (I still have that one). I cleaned my litter box yesterday (soap, water, the whole works). Within 12 hours, poop outside the box! So I know cleanliness isn't the issue. I'm seriously wondering now if it's because she's frustrated with having nothing to scratch on? I'm also wondering if it could be from the new baking soda deodorizer I'm using. I guess I'll have to hide that at the bottom of the litter until it runs out and see if that solves it.

Honestly, it's a guessing game. I'm going down a list basically. New scratch post. New litter mat. Different deodorizer. New litter box. Different litter.

I'm going to go through each one of those until something works. Since your cat is older, I'd definitely wonder if his mobility wasn't effecting him getting in the box. They have a cute little box with stairs if that is the issue.

I'm also taking the person's advice below of cleaning as best I can the spot where the cat has been going to eliminate the smell. I will say though, I took out the litter mat which the cat had been going on and it didn't fix the issue. They just went directly on the cabinet instead, so I'm not sure about the whole being able to smell where they went previously since it was a waterproof mat, so I wouldn't think there would have been a big smell. But I'm going to try to get rid of any smell regardless.

I use a clevercat litterbox:

It's a significant improvement over the classic litterbox shape. The height and lid really minimizes litter mess and odor.

u/TrueGlich · 1 pointr/Pets
u/ammolite · 1 pointr/cats

Since you said you cat just turned 1 y/o, I assume you got him as a kitten. This may sounds weird, but sometimes as cats grow they don't compensate mentally for the added size when they pop-a-squat in the box. This results in them hanging their butt over the edge of the box and pooping RIGHT at the entrance of the box. The solution is to this is (usually) to get a larger litter box. If you're already using the largest size, you can try using a large rubbermaid container with the lid removed or a hole cut in the lid. You can also look into one of these:

u/wintercast · 1 pointr/RedditForGrownups

the litter box is located in a open area of the laundry room, and there is hardly ever anyone there sothe cat has privacy. the cat has two litter boxes. they are the top entry type but i take the tops off. i have thought about getting even larger storage boxes and using those instead.

the cat generally goes right next to the litter box. he has been to the vet. in the past he did have a UTI, but that was about a 2 years ago. He is not acting like he has a UTI. i can place him in the box and he will urniate. i think he just wants the box to be totally clean. if there is even the hint of a lump he wont use it.

I was fully cleaning the boxes (as in soap and water and new litter) ever 2 weeks. now i am going to do it every week.

at this point, i am taking him to the box myself at least 2 times a day and cleaning the boxes 2 times a day.

i have used the hormonal vaporziers and noticed no change.

Not all cats resonate with covered litter boxes, so your mileage may vary on this, but we are big fans of the clevercat litter box. It's a little irritating to pay $35 for a tupperware tub, but the zigzagging channels on the lid do catch quite a bit of the extra litter our cat tracks out of the box.

u/ARsignal11 · 1 pointr/Pets

I use this one:

It's another covered box. I know you mentioned that your other cat will pee on the cover. Hopefully they won't with this one. Works well for 1 of my cats who likes to raise her butt up when she pees. It used to spray outside the box sometimes. This covered one solved all of my problems with high sprayers. I believe it's also cheaper from Walmart if you're interested in saving a few bucks.

u/Xub543 · 1 pointr/Pets

I don't have experience with building or buying cabinet to hide litter box, though you may do some googling around with diy searches for your specific box.

I do have experience with two other options of concealing litter boxes which I thought I would share based on past experience with old apartment, and recent experience with new apartment. They may be helpful if you don't mind switching.

Top entry box hidden in a hallway closet:

This one minimized litter being kicked out. This option was great solution in old apartment which I had extra space to keep the box in a spare hallway closet. It can also be kept in a utility closet with a door cracked open as it takes up minimal space. I threw in motion sense lights in the closet so my cat could see to more easily navigate getting around.

The option I use now in my living room is a covered litter box which looks like a plant: and I bought a tub to go inside of it so I could easily dispose of used litter:

I didn't want a cabinet because to make it look acceptable in the room, it'd need to be a side table and honestly I didn't want to smell cat s*** while sitting on the couch. This plant litter box is nice looking and it's easy enough to spray paint it another color. So far, so far with it. My cat hasn't even knocked off the fake plant on top.

It does an ok job of containing the smell. A good litter will help and so will cleaning daily. It does even look good in my living room and you wouldn't pick out that it's a cat litter box. I face the opening towards the wall so you "litter"ally cannot see the litter or entry opening.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do. It's no fun having an exposed kitty box out in the human living space so I hope you figure something out!

Look into getting this litter box system for your little guy.

I hope this doesn’t get flagged and I’m not a product pusher (check my previous posts and comments) but this is an amazing litter box system. We used to find litter EVERYWHERE; our bed, on furniture until I just had enough. This is awesome. It’s a dehydration system that the pee passes straight through to the weewee pad underneath and the poop’s moisture is pulled out by the dehydration pellets so when you take it out it’s just a dry log. Also, there’s no smell, so easy to take care of and really cheap. I’ve turned 3 coworkers onto this system and they will never go back to regular litter.

Also, there’s a $7 manufacturer coupon on their website so it makes it super affordable.

Cute kitten!!

When my fiance said she wanted to try this for our cats I figured it would be disgusting, but it's actually a pretty good system. When I see poop I scoop and flush it down the toilet right away, and with one cat you'd probably only have to change the pad every 4-5 days. I haven't found it to be smelly, but we'll see if a hundred people follow my comment by saying they tried it and thought it was horrible. Regardless, it would completely solve your problem with litter getting all over the place.

u/CritFailingLife · 1 pointr/Pets

If they and any other pets you have definitely wouldn't eat them (some pets are weirdos and they can cause intestinal blockage), we've actually had mostly decent success with the breeze system and its pellets, which we've also used in a litter box that uses a drawer to collect urine, which you then pour into the toilet, rinse, and put back. I wouldn't use them in a regular box, though, since they aren't absorbent and are designed for urine to pass through to an alternate collection method. The downside is the poop doesn't get buried, so it's more noticeable when they go, which could be a plus if you need motivation to clean the litter box more regularly, I guess. Another option might be to get a cabinet to go around the litter box to reduce the amount that leaves the immediate area of the litter box.

u/cambrewer · 1 pointr/Rabbits

I use the yesterdays news litter in a breeze system litter box. It's the only thing that controls odor for me. All of the urine is soaked up in a puppy pad underneath the box, and then the litter disguises any excess smell whole also allowing urine to fall through the grate so my bun doesn't get yellow feet. I also put hay on top of this. Maybe you just need to try a different litter?? In the meantime, consider giving him so laxatone to allow passage for any foreign materials through his GI tract.

Yeah it seems like your cat knows where to use the bathroom, but thinks both boxes are full. If he pees in the closed box, that would make sense because the smell would build up faster than an open box. In either case, there might be litter that's better at hiding the pee smell for him.

My situation was different, my cat didn't know it was a litter box because it didn't smell like a litter box. It's this one that uses pellets. I had to mix some scented litter in there before she started using it. I highly recommend the box, it hides pee smell very well because the pee sifts to the bottom and soaks into a scented piece of cloth that you change out every week.

I use this and this for my cat and it helps keep the litter pretty contained. I even took the door off the litter box because my cat didn't like it and the litter still isn't bad.

I bought this cat litter box and it's the best one ever! I wish I had found it years ago! It's built good, not a cheapo.

I think they mean something like this, with the lid removed obviously:

Roughly how large is the cat now in terms of height/length? Does your vet have an estimate how much more it will grow?

This one has a removable lid and can be used without it: It's pretty big.

My 16 pounder uses this with space to spare. Lid/door removable:

EDIT: On the second one, you can actually remove the plastic door and the gray flap on top to create a semi-covered box that partially open on top, which maybe a good compromise for a cat who needs some extra headroom.

I just do not understand open air litterboxes, dirty litter and faeces and awful cat pee spray everywhere!!

If you do use a covered litter box, dont get those tiny shit ones from walmart or the booda dome, they WILL shit on the stairs lol. I personally have 2 of these and the smell is nonexistent if you scoop every 2 days like you should. Plus you dont have to take the top off to scoop, theres a panel on top that folds up!!

u/unicorndanceparty · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I swear by this one.

You don't necessarily need to get the jumbo one (my cat is just a fattie) but I've lived in 3 different places with 3 different dogs, and none of them have tried to enter this litter box once I added the little door thingy to it.

I second the closed litter box. I had two of these that come with a clear flap and a carbon filter. I upgraded to a Litter-Robot but kept these just in case because they really are great. This style might be rather big for a bathroom though.

Baking soda absolutely does wonders too. I also have some charcoal bags that I keep close by.

Air purifying plants are great too. Some require low light which makes them perfect for bathrooms. Just make sure they’re non toxic. Here’s a list of safe for pet plants. Just because they’re non toxic doesn’t mean they still can’t get a tummy ache if they eat a lot of the leaves. Just don’t let them munch on them :)

And of course the obvious. Just scooping every day, changing the litter and washing the boxes makes a huge difference!

Yeah, you need a dome on those boxes. I have a litter mat in front of mine, but old carpet would probably work as well.

Edited to add: I bought this jumbo-sized domed litter box off Amazon a few weeks ago for a new kitten. It has a clear door flap on it but I fold it back to make it more open. The foster mom warned me that she was very messy with litter and this has done the trick. It's also, as I said, jumbo-sied. I've also been using this litter mat which I suppose is okay, I'm neutral on it. It does seem to work.

(I included some Amazon links to give you an idea since you mentioned Amazon, no affiliate links just the smile URL for donating to your charity-of-choice if you've set it up. You can get domed litter boxes cheaper if you click around, I just mentioned the one I got because I've been pretty pleased with it.)

Cats bury their waste by instinct, so they're technically born litter-trained. ;) You'll want to have two boxes available (if you have the room in your flat, of course). Open boxes are supposed to be way better than ones with covers, but mine actually much prefer the enclosed ones. *shrug* There's a bunch of different litter box designs, too... take a look at the selection on Amazon, if you get a chance (I recommend this one).

Some cats are much messier than others with the litter; one of mine flings pawfulls of litter out of the box. Another one of mine finishes, and races out, tracking little grains of sand as far as she can. We have litter mats in front of all the boxes, which helps a lot, but you might want to invest in a dedicated little hand-held vacuum to keep nearby.

And you'll need something for claw maintenance -- a scratching post or pad. Don't go for expensive, fancy things, because it'll need replacing periodically. I tried a bunch of different ones, but ultimately, mine prefer the cardboard ones (specifically, this one). Well, that, and one of the living room chairs. *sigh*

An adult won't be as hyper and needy as a kitten, but play is still important. A laser pointer does wonders. If you're crafty, you can make some little catnip-stuffed toys (I crocheted some little mice and things that mine love, although they usually bat them up and down the hallway around 4am).

Another thing I noticed, and others have similar stories, was that a couple of my cats would bump the water dish before drinking. Another would dip her paw in. I'm pretty sure they couldn't tell where the surface was when the water wasn't moving. I got a drinking fountain for them, which solved that, and has the added benefit of filtering the water, keeping it fresher -- and cooler (so important, here in California).

I've got a 10lb rabbit bonded to a 4lb, I use something this size, but not this exact box since the one I ordered is no longer in stock.

I line the litter box with generic puppy pee pads, but newspaper works too! If you change it out regularly it leaves minimal cleaning of the actual box itself.

u/latusthegoat · 1 pointr/cats

Pretty late to this thread, but saw you were/are having issues with litter all over the place. This litter box doesn't eliminate the problem, but it really really helps:

I believe it's available at some PetSmart locations too.

u/tomgabriele · 1 pointr/DIY


195 CFM blower: $25 on Amazon

Carbon filter: $40 on Amazon

The smart outlet is a cheap one from idr where

The motion sensor is the Smartthings one

The litter box is similar to this one.

u/NgBling · 1 pointr/Pets

They’ll be about 9 weeks old when I’m able to take them home in two weeks! They are siblings. I’m thinking of getting a box like this if this helps. They’re currently sharing a litter box with no problems at the foster person’s house.

IRIS Top Entry Cat Litter Box, White

u/Seeschildkroete · 1 pointr/AnimalsBeingJerks

My cats use this box: I use walnut litter, so I still have to sweep up a bit around the box every once in a while if they violently jump out of it, but it keeps everything in really well 95% of the time.


I really like Method's spray cleaners for surfaces. A harsher cleaner is not going to sterilize your surfaces unless you're willing to scrub them to death anyway, so just any cleaner that's a decent surfactant is fine. If I want to prep food, I'll spray the counter, leave it for a few minutes, wipe it off, and then go over it with a clean wet towel to get off any residue. 5 minutes, does the job. If I'm having people over, I clean more thoroughly and make sure to keep the cats off of counters and tables. You want people to be comfortable with food you serve them. Only one of them gets on counters, and she's easy enough to keep off of them if I bother to.

u/dontcryferguson · 1 pointr/cats

I LOVE the top entry box for the sake of the gravity action that drastically reduces litter tracking. That said, we got a second box from amazon that is the same idea, but for significantly less money: IRIS Top Entry Box..

u/questionable41 · 1 pointr/SiberianCats

I have this litter box and love it! Occasionally, litter will get on the lid, but it’s great overall. I use Arm and Hammer Slide with no smell issues, whatsoever. I keep the litter box in the closet with the doors open and I use a litter genie to store the dirty litter.

Pet Mate 42036 Arm & Hammer Large Sifting Litter Pan

That’s what I have!! Works amazing and it’s cheap.

u/meowfia9 · 1 pointr/Pets

When we lived in an apartment, the first one was a studio. The litter box was set up downstairs, underneath the stairs, we eventually ended up moving it to the back door for privacy while using the box. We had hardwood floors, so if you do as well, I would recommend a mat so it’s easier to clean and your cat won’t track as much litter across the floor after using it.

We used to use a litter genie but buying the refills became expensive so we would just keep all our grocery bags in the pantry and use those to scoop the box and then tie them up and toss them in with the regular trash. I wouldn’t recommend directly putting the poop in your trash bc if you don’t accumulate as much trash, your cat’s poop will just sit in the regular open trash and the smell is terrible. So I highly recommend scooping into a grocery bag or even doggy poop pick up bags. They’re super cheap.

I hate being able to smell poop in the box, so I would scoop whenever I heard the cat finish using the box. If you don’t have that much time, i would recommend twice a day. Once in the morning and once at night. Keeping it clean also ensures that your cat won’t go outside the box. Cats are weird like that. If the box is too dirty, they won’t like going in to use it. But by “completely clean it” you mean dumping all the litter and washing the box and then putting in clean litter all over again, we only really did this if poop got on the side of the box. Other than that, I think it’s recommended to keep the box 2/3 filled so usually once a week, I would pour in a bit more litter to keep it filled 2/3 of the way.

Sorry this is so long. I’m pretty much done. My last point, which was a lifesaver, was getting a litter box with a cover that has a swinging door. There’s various versions/brands. We got ours from Walmart, I don’t remember the brand. But it’s a lifesaver. It really diminishes the smell, there’s also a vent on the side and your cat has complete privacy. They also make litter box deodorizer that you can get at the dollar store.

Good luck with your new car! Hope this helps.

I’ll advocate for cat here! Same apartment situation as you, and my boyfriend and I rescued a kitten a few months ago. We purchased a covered litter box from amazon basics and arm and hammer clump and seal litter. We’ve had guests come over to our apartment and they claim that you would never know a cat lived with us. We clean the litter box every night and change out the litter and scrub down the box once a month. As a person with a very sensitive sense of smell, I can also say I’ve never had a moment where I can smell her litter. Just make sure you pour a good 3-4 inches of litter and you’re set!
