A litter box is a necessary part of being a cat guardian. While they may be some of the cleanest critters around, there's no question that they can leave some fairly nasty deposits for you to deal with. One very elegant solution to this unsightly problem is to purchase cat litter furniture, which comes in a variety of styles and colors to fit seamlessly into your decor.
Cat litter furniture will do an excellent job of hiding your kitty's toileting area. But they can do more than simply hide a smelly spot. You'll find some beautiful pieces that offer assorted functions and storage, or which are highly ornamental while humbly serving to house the litter pan. Besides disguising the disgusting stuff, these pieces also give your cat some much-needed privacy while pooing.
One popular choice is cat furniture that incorporates a perceived toileting spot. These pieces may incorporated scratching posts, perches, sleeping cubbies and more. This provides your cat with an opportunity to exercise and have some fun as well as give her a private "bathroom." Some models fit neatly into a corner of a room, maximizing an otherwise small space.
Wooden cabinets are a much thought-after style of cat litter furniture. They look like real pieces of furniture, and are manufactured in a variety of styles, making it easy to find one that will blend in with any room in your house. These cupboards can offer diverse features including room for a large pan, 2 pans, and storage space for supplies like scoops and bags. Especially for those of you with limited space, pieces like these could be an ideal way to give your feline her own area, reclaiming your bathroom for your own use. You can also find styles designed so that you can place knickknacks on top, further creating the illusion of a regular piece of furniture.
Another possibility are litter box covers. These have a variety of designs like a kitty house or carpeted perch with a scratching post and are simply placed directly over the tray. These deftly hide the area and help to stop dust and waste material from being kicked onto your floor.
You can also find benches which have a built-in door for your cat to enter to use the box, and a lift-off cover for access to cleaning supplies. Kitty can use the top as a perch, or you can place it in a mudroom and make use of it yourself as temporary storage.
