Right now we have 4 litterboxes in a small 3rd bedroom. 2 are large and 2 are small. All are hooded. We use non clumping, clay litter and we completely dump them once a week. We also use litterbags.
We have a problem with odor and with going outside the box.
I have been thinking about making our own litterboxes out of rubbermaid containers similar to these:
This is what they use for litter in their litterboxes. I’ve often looked at TWBCL and I always liked using clumping litter because the odor control was MUCH MUCH better, but like I said above…I am a lazy kitty owner when it comes to their potties.
So, what I plan to do is make 3 of those types of boxes. In one I want to put TWBCL, in another I’d like to put the clay litter we’re using now and in the 3rd I want to put the poultry feed. Then I can do my own comparison and transition the kitties to the new “litter” at the same time…if we like it.
I also like the idea of homemade boxes, they are bigger…won’t be covered…and no bags! i hate those damn bags…they’re so expensive and the urine just pools to the bottom of them and makes the entire back of my house smell like cat urine after like a day of us changing the boxes. Which sucks!! Plus, if the boxes need replacing it’s a quick trip to target or somewhere to pick up a new box.
Of course, I’ll have to stop being a lazy kitty mom and actually scoop a box. I’ve done it before…so time to get back on it!
