The average cat uses the litter box three to five times a day. It would make sense that something that is used so frequently on a daily basis requires that we humans put a lot of thought into it. Unfortunately, cat parents often select a litter box for all the wrong reasons – or at least for the wrong reasons from the cat’s perspective.

Litter box basics

Generally speaking, when it comes to litter boxes, simple is best. The best litter box is an uncovered box that is large enough so your cat can turn around in it comfortably.

Don’t put the litter box in an out of the way location. If the box is hard to get to, your cat may not use it. In a multi-level home, you should have at least one box on each level.

The rule of thumb has always been that the number of litter boxes in a home should equal the number of cats, plus one. It will depend on the personalities of the cats within a household whether you really need that many boxes, but too many is always better than too few.

When it comes to litter boxes, cleanliness truly is next to godliness. Cats are fastidious creatures. Using a dirty litter box is, at best, uncomfortable for them, and at worst, will cause them to eliminate outside the box. Keeping the litter box clean may not  be the most fun thing on your daily to do list, but it is one of the responsibilities of being a good cat parent. For that reason, any product that makes the job easier is a good one in my book.

PetFusion offers a  number of fantastic products that make litter box management a breeze.


Large Non-Stick Litter Box

This generously sized box features a non-stick coating that prevents litter from sticking to the side and bottom of the box.

Dr. Elsey’s Ultra is our preferred litter. Despite the proliferation of alternative litters, it is still the best cat litter that I’ve found and used for decades. This clay litter clumps harder than any other litter I’ve tried, it has virtually no dust, and, most importantly, cats like it.


PetFusion Tough Grip Litter Mat

Thoughtfully designed with premium durable silicone and elevated inner ridges and an outer lip to effectively contain pesky cat litter, this mat is comfortable cats to walk on. Litter remains on surface recesses. It includes a side spout to make clean up super easy. Because it’s smooth rather than prickly like so many other mats designed to trap litter, it encourages your cat to relax its paws and release trapped litter.


PetFusion QuickScoop Large Litter Scoop

This generously sized scoop’s clever design makes scooping easier by allowing you to get underneath the litter rather than into the clumps


PetFusion Portable Cat Litter Disposal

With many well-thought out features, this litter disposal bin keeps odors inside the bin and out of your regular trash can. The best part: you can use it with any bag, no need to buy special refill bags.


PetFusion Litter Box Screen

One of my biggest pet peeves is that so many cat parents want litter boxes out of sight. While I understand that desire, it can cause problems, especially if the box is placed in basements near noisy appliances such as washers, dryers, or furnaces. If having the litter box in plain view bothers you, this attractive litter screen offers a solution. A word of caution: not all cats will like having a screen around their box. Introduce the screen to your cat’s environment gradually rather than placing it around the litter box right away, and let your cat tell you whether she will accept having her box screened off.

7 Comments on PetFusion Makes Litter Box Management Easy

  1. My kitties have been using Dr. Elsey’s for years. I had a very picky Maine Coone that went outside the pan until I found Dr. Elsey’s. I recently adopted my first Torti kitten and she has tood to the max. She only uses the pan on the terrace level that is in a hidden location. She covers her waste and the other kitties waste so well no one would know there is anything there. She cleans after herself and her friend. These are great products.

  2. I tried dr else’s litter and what a disappointment. My cat urinates against the side of the box and this litter stuck to the box like cement. So hard to remove I ended up throwing it away. Also I bought my litter box from a site that you recommended. I forget the name bit it wasn’t amazon.

  3. This post came at just the right time. I am having trouble finding Litter Genie refill bags in my town right now and had to resort to buying them online. I found them at Walmart yesterday but they refused to sell them to me claiming it was an online only item (even though there were a bunch on the shelf and I have always bought them there). But online, all they had available was from resellers who jack up the price. I ended up getting some slightly overpriced ones from Ebay. If this litter system doesn’t require special bags, I just might start using it instead.

    • Wow, that’s a new customer service low on Walmart’s part that they wouldn’t sell you the bags even though they were on the shelf! I think you’ll like this system.

      • I know. I was mad too. Someone didn’t do their job. I should have gotten rude and asked for the manager and demanded they sell it, but the girl that works the self check out area (they have no cashier lines open when I go in the morning) is always so nice to me. I didn’t want ruin her day by her seeing how angry I can get. Even though the stocker in the pet area didn’t do his job, he is always nice to me too. All I know is they better be in the system by the time I need them again or I will be changing to this new litter disposal system.
