Cat Litter Boxes
What’s All This Fuss About Cat Litter Boxes?
If you have a house cat, that’s one that for whatever reason doesn’t go outdoors chance are you are going to have experience of cat litter boxes. The bottom line is (forgive the pun) that your kitty has to poop someplace. That someplace is in cat litter boxes or litter trays as we English call them. Cats are not renowned for their discretion when it comes to using the bathroom so you will also be well aware of the downsides of this indoor toilet arrangement. Cats that come and go indoors as they please are on the whole quite contented to do their pooping in the garden (usually a neighbours) so you won’t have to put up with any of the more unpleasant side effects of them using cat litter boxes. Needless to point out that the three top complaints are the smell, noisy digging and the litter that gets dumped all over your nice carpets and furniture.
Technology and Cat Litter Boxes
The great news for those of us who have a kitty living in our houses like Rantin Cat is that along with most other everyday devices technology has arrived in the world of cat litter boxes. I have to admit that I have been using the same old fashioned poop and scoop type litter tray for years without even realizing what else was on offer. Wow! Self cleaning, flushing and deodorizing cat litter boxes are all over the internet and they don’t have to cost a fortune. Most of these clever devices address some if not all of the above mentioned issues that accompany cats pooping indoors. All you need is a power supply (and with the more up market ones a water supply) and your cat is good to go. The dust and flying kitty litter issues can be taken care of with a hooded or fully enclosed unit. These are available with either a front entrance or better still (my own view) an access in the top. “The top loader” style will go some way towards limiting the amount of litter that gets taken out and dumped around your home.
High End Cat Litter Boxes
The devices (cat toilets) at the top end of the market can do everything apart from taking the poop to the trash for you. There is even one that flushes like a toilet but it does require a water supply. Most of the high end products self clean or only need human intervention around once a week. Of course, its one thing finding the perfect odor and mess free litter tray but convincing your kitty to use it may be another matter. Some cats don’t like the enclosed types. Especially if like my guys they have been using the cabriolet (open top) pooping tray all their lives. Some of the better one’s have a cat flap style door but again how many house cats are used to cat flaps? As with all things in this life you are only going to get what you pay for so it’s best to do some proper research before whipping out your charge card. Anyway I can’t hang about here all day chatting about cat litter boxes I need to go scoop some poop lol
