Get the Scoop on High-Design Litter Boxes
I adore my Maine coon, Miss Bubby (aka Boo Boo, aka My Boo), but dealing with her litter box is really a labour of love. I am blessed; it essentially has its own room, but it still bugs me. I can’t imagine what it’s like for cat owners who live in tiny spaces. Until today, that is. This problem was cleverly addressed by architects, cabinetmakers, furniture designers and smart DIYers. Read on for ways to improve this pet-related issue.
Native American Teepee Litter Box – $24
Litter box covers have gone crazy. This is the funniest one I seen while shopping around. Important props to the photo stylist and photographer who caught the cats in and around the tepee.

On a more critical note, if you are building a home from scratch or do not mind a little drywall dust in a minirenovation, an under-cabinet box using another secret entrance is a superb solution. Your frisky feline moves out of an opening on the opposite side of the wall, as you get to keep the cabinet doors shut unless you are cleaning. This diva likes to do her business and then sneak her out discreet private entrance.

Maintain a sense of humor when thinking about your kitty’s VIP entrance. I believe this opening is a shout; it’s like a blown-up variant of a cartoon mouse hole.
With a personal cat entrance, the cabinet doors remain shut and hide what is happening inside. Then you can open them up for easy cleaning.

I believe that it’s kind of funny that the cat toilet is right next to the folks toilet. In case you have a box in your secret mess area, select one with a roof which has a carbon filter to prevent odors from escaping.
If you are not ready to invest in cutting through drywall, here is a simple solution: Cut a cat-size hole in a cabinet door. Be sure this specific cabinet is dedicated to the litter box along with extra litter only.

If you are fortunate enough to have a valuable kitty along with a tricked-out laundry room, it’s the ideal spot for a secret cat cabinet.
I like to imagine that these individuals have a kitty called Sparkle, who picked the turquoise paint, glittery chandelier and zebra rug herself.

This seat is a serious investment, but if you think about a lifetime of litter boxes, then it appears worth saving . It comes in all of those fun colors you find down the left side.

You can find the same effect using a built-in. This smart window chair has a lift-up shirt for cleaning along with a kitty entrance below. If you are handy, this is most likely a simple DIY project. If you are not, it still will probably cost less compared to Kattbank.

Intelligent DIYer Elisa Proctor solved the litter box problem herself for about 40 bucks.
“I was sick of seeing the regular-type cat litter box in my very small bathroom in my apartment… and clutter everywhere… so I started thinking outside the box… so to talk,” she writes.
When she found that this seat ottoman for under $40, the wheels started spinning.
