Clever Ways to Hide a Litterbox

Clever Ways to Hide a Litterbox

Cats have many wonderful qualities. They are not only super cute, they’re also chock-full of purrsonality! However, while our feline friends certainly help make our houses into homes, Fluffy’s litterbox probably won’t do much for your décor. In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet discusses hiding litterboxes.

End Table

An end table with doors can make a very attractive litterbox closet. Cut a hole in one side for Fluffy to get in and out of, and then use the doors for cleaning access. Another option is to use an end table with legs, and put the litterbox underneath it. Put a non-toxic plant on the table, or drape a pretty fabric over it.

Storage Tote

A storage tote is another great option for litterbox camouflaging. Just cut a cat-sized hole in one end. To make it look more attractive, you can decorate it with contact paper or stencils.

Closet Hack

If you have a small closet you can spare, consider turning it into Fluffy’s powder room. Just put the litterbox inside, and cut a cat door into the door. Of course, we only recommend this one if you own your home.

Folding Screen

Another option is to get a pretty folding screen. Put it kitty corner, with the litterbox behind it. Just be sure to leave room for your feline friend to get in and out. Put plastic sheets on the back of the screen to protect it.

Custom Pieces

If you look online, you’ll find some really cute pieces of furniture made specifically for holding—and disguising—litterboxes. You can even find litterboxes designed as plant pots! These could be a bit more expensive than the other options, but they may be well worth the cost.

Tips

While there are several options for hiding litterboxes, hiding the smell of Fluffy’s litterbox is a different story. First and foremost, keep your kitty’s bathroom nice and clean by scooping it daily and changing the litter out every week. Setting out pet-safe plants will also help. Plants filter air, which will reduce odors. Plus, they make your house look nice! Check the ASPCA site for safe options.
