Finding The Purrr-fect Litter Box
It’s hard to be paw-sitive when picking out a litter box. I know that I want an ideal place for my cat to call its throne– that part of the thinking process is easy enough. Even better is that I at least know that my top choices are always the Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box, the Nature’s Miracle Litter box, and the Petmate Hi-Back Litter Pan. But let’s be real, what makes a litter box the ideal box for you? I mean it’s just a place for your cat to take care of its business, so it can’t be that hard…right?
Well, let me break it down for you since there are a couple factors to consider. The scariest part of even having a litter box is the cleaning. You can either use a sponge, warm water, and a safe cleaning agent, or opt for the way of royals, and get a self-cleaning litter box.
As to how to dispose of that litter, a tied up double-lined bag should do the trick, or at least 2 plastic bags and a trash can. Litter boxes should be scooped at least once a day and litter should generally be replaced twice a week. So my advice to you is that if you can’t do the time, don’t get a feline.
Ewww. Do you Smell that?
A fresh smelling litter box keeps both me, my cat, and the rest of my family happy. If you’ve ever actually smelled a dirty litter box then that should be enough motivation to invest in one with odor protection. That and the fact that you don’t want your cat to be so disgusted that he gets rid of his business elsewhere.
Some cats have really messy litter habits and if you know that that’s your case, then you should definitely buy a litter box with some type of mess protection. Size, surface, and built-in technology can be a huge help. It’ll save you time and be a protection for both you and your cat’s health.
Now Let’s Explore Your Choices.
The Omega Paw Litter Box
The Omega Paw Self-cleaning litter box is one of my all time favorites. Waste collects in a pullout tray for quick disposal and since it’s self-cleaning, it saves me tons of time.
Plus it’s a large size so there’s no discrimination against your big cat. It has a cover, contains odors, and controls dust so do I hear mess and odor protection??
The patented grill inside separates clean litter from waste, so it’s literally made for your simplicity. And it does all of this without electricity, liners or filters. Pretty impressive for a litter box.
The Nature’s Miracle Litter Box
Nature’s Miracle Oval Hooded Flip Top Litter Box is another one of my favorites. I’ve never smelled an odor using this one. It’s made with odor-blocking technology and anti-microbial protection.
I love the flip top feature since it makes make clean up quick and easy. The hood helps prevent litter scatter and spraying leaks. Plus the non-stick surface completely gets rid of any type of build up.
It’s a good size of 17 inches, has a top, and a non-stick surface. So mess protection?
The Petmate Litter Pan
The Petmate Hi-Back Litter Pan is my final favorite litter box. Not only is it a cheaper option but its available in tons of colors. And its jumbo, measuring 21-1/5-inch length by 17-1/3-inch width by 10-1/3-inch height.
The High back controls litter scatter and spray, making it perfect for a cat with messy litter habits. The low entrance makes it easy for your furry friend to get in and out of the litter pan as they please.
