Kitty litter boxes & cleaning

6 years ago
last modified: 6 years ago

How often do you dump and clean your actual boxes out and clean the area where you have them? We have two open boxes in the laundry room off to the side. I'd prefer closed boxes, but our one very large cat wasn't fitting well anymore.

The boxes are cleaned daily and sometimes more than once, but I'll admit I don't do the other cleanings as much as I should. Where do you clean your boxes? I haven't been able to bring myself to put them in our bathtub so I do it outside.

I think I need to come up with a different box solution. The big kitty has been peeing outside lately and it goes allll under and around mixing with tiny pieces of litter. I was considering cutting a storage container but they don't seem large enough. I need to measure the bottom. I'm not sure that will help with the pee though because I think he takes a step in to go and he's just not walking in far enough. I just know I'm tired of cleaning up the mess. The high sides would help litter fling. Another thing to consider, with the storage containers having high sides they're going to feel larger in the room. I'm thinking as I type here.
