Litter box solutions shouldn’t be that difficult.
I don’t really require much to be satisfied – a warm spot to sleep, a nice scratching post, food and water all day long, some pleasant brushing, and a clean place to do my business. That’s all… not much.
My Humans do a relatively good job of giving me those things. But I hear stories, horror stories, of litter boxes gone very, very wrong.
Since we step into our “toilets” with our little footies, shouldn’t it be every Human’s desire to make sure the litter and boxes are clean? Think about it… how would you like to step into your toilet, dig around, do your business and jump out without anyone ever flushing it or scrubbing it. Hmmmm???? Not a pretty thought, is it.
Okay, go ahead and delete that from your brain. Sorry.
When a Cat steps into the litter box, he or she has two things in mind… relief, then dig dig dig bury bury bury dig dig dig. In other words, that litter (and the goodies in it) are going to get flung somewhere if the box is loaded with poops and clumps of pee. There I said it.
Please keep the litter box clean.
Onto two of my recommended goodies. First the litter, then let’s have a little fun with the litter box.
Let’s start with the simplest thing – a good litter. My recommendation? I like this Nature’s Miracle Odor Control stuff. It smells nice, clumps nice, and generally works like it’s supposed to.
I’ve had to endure some pretty awful litter in my day, and this one makes up for that.
My personal feeling about corn litter and newspaper litter is “I’d rather not.” Sorry. My Humans tried, but corn smells funny when it gets wet… and so does newspaper. Those big pellet things fly all over the place. But, whatever you Humans choose, keep it clean.
Now, if you really want to have fun, get an automatic cleaning litter box.
It’s good for a few laughs (or not, as evidenced by the Cat in this picture).
Personally, a good old regular litter box works just fine, but if you want to go high tech, this is cool.
But, hey, this Scoop Free Automatic Litter Box can be rather entertaining, and you don’t have to get your little hands dirty.
Then for the completely insane luxury kitty toilets, here are the winners –

Okay, that was fun. Now, would you mind getting those things I left in my litter box OUT?! Thanks.
