There are many things to love about our feline friends! Fluffy has some truly wonderful traits and characteristics! One great thing about kitties is the fact that they are naturally quite clean. Your pet will groom herself regularly, and will discretely use her litterbox to do her business. However, while the litterbox does make it much easier to care for your cat, it isn’t going to do much for your décor. We can help! Below, a Fayetteville, NC vet offers some great ways to hide litterboxes.
There are actually several easy ways to upcycle end tables so they can disguise litterboxes. Check local thrift stores and yard sales for low-cost pieces. If you get the kind with doors, just cut a kitty-sized hole in the back or side, and use the doors for access when you want to clean it. If you have an end table with legs, tuck the litterbox under it. Then, drape fabric over the table, leaving one side open for Fluffy to get in and out. Put a pet-safe plant on top to help keep your home smelling fresh. You can also do this with some coffee tables, dressers, and armoires.
This simple solution actually looks very nice! Put a folding screen up in one corner. Leave just enough room for your four-legged friend to get behind it. You may want to put a sheet of thick plastic on the screen to protect it.
Wicker storage boxes or hampers, storage ottomans, trunks and any other type of large box can be made into a litterbox holder. Large plastic totes will also work, and are great options because they are so cheap to replace when they get worn. Just cut a hole in one side for your cat. If you want, you can also use paint, stencils, or contact paper to make your pet’s purrsonal powder room look nice.
A quick online search will turn up dozens of cleverly-designed furniture pieces that are specifically made for hiding litterboxes. You can even find some disguised as potted trees! These options may be a bit more expensive, but they are also very attractive.
