Finding the Right Litter Box >>

Back to: Home > Cat

Litter boxes come in many styles, shapes and sizes. So how do you know which litter box is right for you and your cat? Here are some tips to help you make a decision you BOTH can live with.

We’ll help you find your perfect litter box. And you can help us find out which type of litter box cat lovers prefer – covered, or uncovered. Cast your vote below then check our Facebook page on June 1st to see the winner!

Size Matters

The roomier the box, the more comfortable it will be for your cat to use. You don’t want your cat to feel “trapped” inside a box that is too small. So make sure that there is plenty of room inside for your cat to move around comfortably.

 Covered
 Uncovered

To cover, or not to cover – that is the question. And the answer depends on both you and your cat. Each style has its advantages and disadvantages. Unfortunately, you and your cat may be looking for different features in a litter box. Here are some things to consider before you buy:

COVERED UNCOVERED
Positives
Less odor for you – Cover traps more odor inside the box so your home smells better
Less litter mess – Keeps litter inside the box, not on your floor
Hides the mess – Don’t have to see the waste
Positives
Easy to clean – Easy access for scooping
Compact – Takes up less vertical space
Security – Gives your cat the ability to watch its surroundings and allows for a quicker escape
Negatives:
More odor for your cat – With more odor trapped inside the box, scoop daily to make the box more inviting
Insecurity – Some cats may feel “trapped” and vulnerable, especially in a multi-cat home
Negatives:
Litter mess – Easier for your cat to kick litter outside the box
More odor – More odor can escape into your home
Unattractive – Unless the box is hidden out of site, you will see the waste inside

Feature Attractions

Special features can make a litter box easier to use and maintain. So look for the features that work best for you. Here are some of our favorites:
• Sifting Pan – easier to clean – just remove the top sifting layer to discard soiled litter and waste
• Rimmed Pan – harder for your cat to kick litter outside the box
• Enclosed Box – fully enclosed with a swinging door for entry keeps odor and litter inside the box
• Top Entry – keeps more odor inside, harder to kick litter outside the box, waste is out of sight

Keep It Clean

Litter box odors can make life miserable for both you and your cat. So do your best to keep litter box odors under control, and remember to scoop your cat’s litter box every day.
