I have no idea what section this would go in. You guys should make a section about litter boxes.. :)

I just wanted to show off where i keep the two litter boxes in my home. If you guys think these are good places to put them.

The first picture is the litter box in the laundry room.

The second picture is in the office. The litter box is under the old desk. Does it look like a good spot for that?

another picture

In this picture you can see a close up of the litter box in the office.

The green arrow is pointing to a pee stain on the rug. The gold arrow is pointing to a stain on the wood floor from when i had an old mat there and the pee went through it and messed up the floor. :(

So now im using these 2 mats and so far there hasnt been any accidents. well just the pee stain on the mat. but thats it.

im thinking of getting a bigger/deeper litter box o

As long as they're out of the way of a lot of foot traffic and your kitties are using them properly, I'd say they're good spots. I've heard others having slight problems with them in laundry rooms if the kitties get startled by the washing machine noise, but that's about it.

I think that the location of the litter tray depends on the cats being comfortable using the trays. We're temporarily staying at my Mum's place and we're doing the best we can with the space we have. We have one litter tray in the bathroom and one in the walk in robe. The one in the robe is more hidden but the cats actually prefer the bathroom tray, that's the one that gets used the most.

Yup, it can. When some neighbors moved out of the cul-de-crap where I used to live, the owners had to tear everything up, floor, floor-boards, it was disgusting. I stopped by to say hi to the maintenance guy and couldn't even go inside the house because of the stench.

Thanks everyone for your replys. :)

the cats are fine using the box in the laundry room. the machines dont seem to bother them.

My girls are fascinated - and a little scared - by the front loading washer. I think it's because of the reflections on the black glass front door - as they move, everything changes.

my kitty's have 2 uncovered boxes in the hallway by the front door, we don't have a lot of visitor's & people knocking the door, they all tend to use the box on the left hand side for poop & the box on the right for pee bless em lol



they also have a covered box in the bathroom which they use for both pee & poop :) funny lil thing's they are love them xx



all 3 boxes are large & are deeply filled which uses 2 bag's of clumping litter each, they are always kept clean, Tulah tends to pee right at the edge which sticks to the side of the box, in this case I tip the box so that I can remove the pee with paper towel & then clean the side of the box with baby wipe's, I keep the litter topped up & do a complete change approx every 5-6 week's or sooner if the poop box start's to smell at all,

I never have any problem's with urinating or pooping outside of the boxes other than if I have over filled & Tulah pee's over the edge in which case she scoop's the litter out of the box to cover the pee on the floor, clever girlie but this has only happened 2 or 3 time's to date.

some people might think it weird but I think is really cute when I go to the loo & one of my kitty's go's at the same time in their bathroom box lol

Victoriax, I really like that covered box of yours. Unlike all the other covered ones I've seen, that has a nice big opening so it doesn't seem like it would be so claustrophobic inside. You're in England, right?

Hiya

yes I am in England, the covered box is brilliant as it is quite large but fit's perfect into the space in the bathroom although we cannot close the bathroom door without moving the box lol we don't bother when it's just us here as all our door's are left open in fact we only have a bedroom & bathroom door as we took the other's off as they would never be closed & just took up room :) but when we have visitor's they obviously like some privacy when using the bathroom so I move the kitty box round the corner into the bedroom

the poop box in the hallway is actually a very large plastic storage box which we cut out a hole in the front.

oh yes. my father had to completely rip up and replace all the hardwood floors in one of his rental houses because apparently the woman didn't use litterboxes, she just turned the whole house into one.

I love the idea of the cat having it's very own bathroom :) but I would still clean the boxes every day ;-)

Our kitties our new to our house so the I put the litter boxes in easy to fine places, one is currently in the dining room and one is in the bathroom, they were both in the dining room, but we had to separate them again because they had a bit of a fight. The shelter said they may have accident on the floor, but both have been really good about using the littler boxes and I have noticed they were using one for poop and one for pee when both boxes were in the dining room.

I'm hoping once they get use to the house (and each other) I can find more discreet places to put the boxes other than the dining room.

I have to Victoria and Maggie, I find it cute when the cats use the little box also. I think its funny how particular they get about finding a good place to stand and then gently covering up their little poop or pee.

Its interesting that everyone puts there boxes in the bathroom. Im glad that the laundry room and the back office works out well for the litter boxes.

One of mine is in the hall coat closet (with a door stop holding it up a tiny bit) and the other is in the spare bedroom's walk in closet. Not very visible to guests but very easy to access.

I wish I had a laundry room to put mine in. In all my previous houses they were in a laundry room, a basement, or a garage. My current house has no laundry room, no basement, and the garage is detached, so I have one in the bathroom upstairs and one downstairs in the dining room. There is a little "station" next to each one with a scooper, broom and dustpan, and extra litter so everything I need is right there.

I use the storage room. She might be a little bit spoiled for space, but we're not using it for anything.



(Please excuse the brat. She just wanted to know what I was doing in there. Also I'm way too lazy about taking the empties for recycling)
