going to sound like a SUPER crazy cat lady…

we have 6 cats, so the box is scooped 3 times a day. every day.

i use the clumping cat litter from Bj’s (thier brand) and arm and hammer litter box deodorizer

our biggest issue is they like to dig like theyre trying to borrow out of the house and get litter all over, hence the high sided boxes

tinaisodd:  We have a couple of cats that like to dig their way to China as well. We bought one a covered litter tray like this 

 

Our other digger wont use the covered tray (he is blind so enclosed spaces freak him out) so we put his litter box inside a larger plastic container so it catches the flying litter.

Both of ours are in our spare room/office because we have a small apartment and 2 cats, but I didn’t want them out in the main living space. One is in the closet on the floor, and the closet has an acordion door that is stiff so there’s no chance that the doors would accidentally shut. The other is next to our futon that is hardly ever used, in the corner against the wall. You can’t see it unless you are right in front of it.

I keep an air freshener on top of the one box (they both have lids) to help with the smell, although I clean them every day so they aren’t noticeable. I use regular clay litter, unscented. I do a complete litter change with bleaching the boxes about every month to keep them clean, since Roo likes to pee along the wall of the box and it’s hard to scrape off with the scoop sometimes.

I used to have 2 cats with my ex and this was their setup:

They were located in the kitchen’s eat-in area, which we never used, so it was a big open space for the cats hang out in.  Even though the cats weren’t high pee-ers, I’ve got to say that the DIY litter box made out of the Rubbermaid container was the best!  We put in 3 or 4 of those 35lbs buckets of litter in it which made it so much easier to scoop since the clumps would just sit on top. Because of that we didn’t need to replace the litter as often either since the clumps didn’t break into little pieces.  

We used unscented litter and everytime I scooped (twice a day), I’d wipe the boxes down with a diluted bleach solution and dispose the clumps into a Litter Locker.  We never had an issue with litter box smell either.

Just stumbled across this, very interesting! I think I need to have a litter re-think. Our two boys share a regular tray in our laundry room and we use this recycled paper pellet stuff. They fling pellets all around the laundry and I’m forever stepping around it. I would love to have it somewhere discreet or hidden with a lid. 

They’re outside during the day and much prefer doing their business in the great outdoors. Wish I trusted them outside at night, then I could dispose of the wretched thing all together!

Just a few suggestions.

Ladies who have the enclosed litter boxes—PLEASE, please either take the top off or get rid of it. It’s not good for your kitties to have fumes of urine and feces lingering there. Also, it doesn’t promote good potty-ing. As you know, kitties are faily clean animals. Would you want your bathroom to essentially be a porta-potty?  Your kitties don’t want their bathrooms to be a kitty version of a porta-potty.

On that note, we have two boys who love to kick out dirt. I went and bought a high sided, corner litter box (http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Miracle-Advanced-Corner-Litter/dp/B004N1NAMW/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1407681667&sr=8-3&keywords=litter+box+corner) and love it!

ADiamondInTheRough:  really? I’ve never heard that but it makes sense. We got the covered one because our cat is super shy, so if anyone is around he won’t go (like even if we arent in the same room, just he can hear us). He’s gotten much better with the box tho, gives him some privacy
