This morning I was talking with my sister Connie and the subject of kitty litter boxes came up. She feels the same as I do. We both complained about the sand getting kicked out of the box and having to constantly clean it up. And of course there is the dreaded 'smell'! Yuk!
She asks me if I have one of those hooded kitty litter boxes. Nope. The one indoor cat is, well, um, let's call him a husky fella' and won't fit comfortably inside one of those hoods. Besides, those hooded cat boxes aren't cheap!
She then tells me what her daughter ( my niece Marrissa) did. She had heard a tip to use a plastic tote with a lid and make your own hooded kitty box. In fact, Marissa used the tip for her own cat's litter box.
So, guess what? Today I fashioned a 'poorman's' kitty litter box.
First, get a plastic tote with a lid. As you can see, Honey Dog and Squirrel are checking it out. They are pretty sure this is for them. Well, it actually is for Squirrel!
I know, the box doesn't fit very well inside the tote, but it will have to do until I get a smaller one. Hmmm, no more sand getting kicked out in all directions! I like that!
