We already know that cats are little Zen masters who can help us meditate and generally live in the moment, but I can honestly say that I never thought of the litter box as a tool for mindfulness. Then a dear friend gave me the Zen Garden Litter Box for my birthday. And let me tell you, this tiny little litter box packs a mindfulness punch!Continue Reading

If you’ve read us for any length of time, you know that our favorite litter box is the NVR Miss litter box.

When I adopted Ruby in 2011, I didn’t realize that I would be embarking on the search for the perfect litter box. Ruby was a vertical pee-er. I had never had one of those. My regular litter box wasn’t going to work any longer. Continue Reading

When it Comes to Your Cat’s Litter Box, Simple is Better

cat-litter-box

After receiving and turning down the umpteenth pitch to feature or review yet another “innovative” litter box, I feel compelled to share my views on litter boxes, which is pretty much summed up in the headline of this article: simple is (usually) better!

Most of the new litter boxes are designed to either make cleaning the litter box easier, or to hide the litter box. Neither of these two reasons have anything to do with what cats want or need, and everything to do with human sensibilities. Continue Reading

One of my pet peeves when it comes to litter boxes is that many new litter boxes are designed to either make cleaning the litter box easier, or hide the litter box from view. Neither of these two reasons have anything to do with what cats want or need, and everything to do with human sensibilities.Continue Reading

PetFusion Makes Litter Box Management Easy

petfusion-litter-box-screen-disposal

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.Continue Reading

Litter Box Solutions for Senior Cats

cat-litter-box

We previously featured high-sided litter boxes to help you contain the mess inside the box rather than all around the box. Even though all of these boxes have lower entrance areas, they may still be too high for senior cats, especially cats with arthritis.

Arthritis is a common condition that affects as many as 3 in 10 cats. It is often not diagnosed in cats because it is difficult to recognize even for the most dedicated cat guardian. The signs can be subtle, and since cats are such masters at masking pain, it often remains untreated. Only 7% of cats with arthritis receive treatment.Continue Reading

Kitty Sift® Disposable Litter Box and Liner (2023 Review)

When it comes to littler boxes, cleanliness is truly next to godliness. Boxes should be scooped at least once a day, preferably several times a day. At least once a month, the litter should be completely changed out after thoroughly cleaning the box with hot water and unscented soap. And no matter how well you clean, the porous plastic will start to break down eventually, depending on how frequently the box is used. In most cases, litter boxes should be replaced after 6 months to a year.Continue Reading

Senior cats may need special consideration when it comes to litter boxes. Most seniors will have some degree of arthritis, a common condition that affects as many as 3 in 10 cats. It is often not diagnosed in cats because it is difficult to recognize even for the most dedicated cat guardian. Litter box avoidance may be a symptom of arthritis, since getting in and out of the box can be painful for a cat with aching joints.Continue Reading
