The perfect litter box is one that your cat can disappear into and then reappear clean and content. There will be no odor coming from the litter box. Apart from this, you will not have to worry about freshening or replacing the box. In fact, no maintenance will be required at all.
Having said this, what should you consider when looking for a litter box? Here are some tips to keep in mind.
There are a number of odor control products that can create barriers and prevent odor from growing in the litter box. The products can also remove pungent odors from the air around it. For example, Stink Free Litter Spray Powder Deodorizer helps to destroy offensive smells in the litter box with its convenient spray.
The varieties of litter in the market are available in different materials, texture and odor treatment. Some of the litters, for example, Cat Genie, are made from bio-degradable grown grasses. The litters absorb and bind matter that cause order. The grass granules used to make the litter are safe on the cat’s paws, produce less dust than clay litter and do not stick to the litter box. The litters are safe for both cats and humans.
Litters that have automatic or manual built-in cleaning mechanisms last longer and make it easier to remove waste. Some litter boxes can clean themselves and deposit the waste in a disposable container that you can remove, empty and rinse. One of such boxes is Nature’s Miracle® Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes. Such boxes are healthy alternatives that reduce handling of the waste.
You can give your cats privacy by buying them hooded litter boxes. These boxes help to control odor and prevent waste and urine from spreading. For instance, the Jumbo Hi-Back Liter Pan is integrated with a zeolite filter to reduce odors.
Cat litter boxes are available in a variety of decorative colors as well as soft earth tones that will complement your décor. Boxes that come in discreet, attractive designs can look great in any room.
Litter boxes come in all sizes and shapes. You will find small boxes that take minimal space. However, if you have a cat, one thing is for sure: the larger the box, the better. If you have a large cat, you may want to go with the Jumbo Hi-Back Hooded Litter Pan or the Jumbo Open Litter Pan boxes.
Litter boxes are hygienic options you can give your cat. The above are some of the things to keep in mind when looking to buy a cat litter box.
