Unsightly Litter Box- Love Your Cat with Cat Litter Furniture

By: David P. Lee

You may have the cat litter box in a far away corner, down in the laundry room or even in the basement. Although the main reason for putting it out of the way may be to hide it, it also provides a useful purpose, a place of privacy for you kitty. In some large homes this may be easy to do. But many cat owners today live in smaller, modest homes that can not quite support the needs of both the cat and the owner.

Sometimes the only alternative for cat owners with small houses or apartments is to put the box in plain view. Generally, this placement will not make the cat, the owner or guests comfortable. Thankfully, now the litter box can be hidden inside of cat litter furniture. That's right, furniture that is made specifically to house the litter box in plain view. These fashionable and clever pieces of furniture completely solve the problem of litter box placement in small areas, leaving everyone, including the cat, happy.

Cat litter furniture is available in a wide variety of styles and colors to match any home décor.

One of the more popular styles of this type of furniture is the cabinet. This is because of its ease of entry for the cat, ease of accessibility to the litter box and its multi usefulness for the owner. With this type of cat litter furniture, the litter box is placed inside the cabinet, a cat door is provided and the top is hinged for easy access. The size of the cabinet will depend on the size the litter box required. The nice thing about this unit is that it can be placed anywhere that any other table would be placed.

The best time to introduce cat litter box furniture to your cat is when it is still a kitten and still learning the rules of the house, but an older cat can learn to use it as well. With an older cat it is important to go slow, prop the cat door on the furniture open, this will provide the cat the opportunity to check it out without feeling trapped. Don't take the established litter box away, rather slowly move it over a couple of days toward the unit, finally putting it inside. Praise the cat when he uses it and, as always, keep it clean.

The most important thing about your cat litter furniture is that it is a barometer of your cats health. If you notice your kitty is not making his regular visits to the box then something is up! You may notice that you cat has a case of diarrhea. This would indicate a definite problem is at hand. Sometimes a cat will even lay down in it's cat box, this is a sign of possible serious sickness or other problems as cats usually have very clean habits. If you notice any of these signs or symptoms you should be sure to contact your vet.
