Did you know that cats have overtaken dogs as America’s most popular pet? Fluffy certainly does have some wonderful qualities. She’s cute, clean, and quite independent. Plus, you won’t have to walk your feline pal: kitties use litterboxes to see to their needs. Of course, litterboxes aren’t very attractive, and they won’t do much for your décor. Read on as a local Seminole, FL vet lists some clever ways to hide your pet’s purrsonal powder room.
One good option is to take a folding screen and put it in a corner. Put the litterbox behind it. Make sure you leave enough room for Fluffy to get in and out!
This method works with any sort of chest or storage trunk. It also works with enclosed end tables, credenzas, or even buffets. Just cut a hole in one side to make a door for your kitty. You can use the existing lid or doors for access.
A quick online search for litterbox storage will reveal lots of attractive pieces. These may cost a bit more than the other options, but they are sturdy and functional. You can even find litterboxes disguised as plants!
If you have a house, you may want to dedicate a small broom closet into Fluffy’s bathroom. Install a pet door for your feline pal, so you don’t have to leave it open. You can still use part of the closet for storage, though you obviously wouldn’t want to keep clothes in it.
Drape a piece of fabric over an end table, leaving room at the back for your furry friend to get in and out. If you like, put a plant on top of the end table. This will also help with the smell. Check the ASPCA website here for a list of suggestions.
A simple storage tote is another option. You will need to cut a hole in one side for your furball. The good thing about this option is that you can decorate it with contact paper, paint, or stencils, to make it look a bit nicer. (Bonus: when it starts to get worn out, it will also be easy and inexpensive to replace.)
