Cat Litter Box Furniture For The Discerning Home Owner

Being a cat owner can be a rewarding and satisfying experience although one of the least desirable aspects of cat ownership is having to put a litter box down somewhere. Regardless of how clean you keep your cat’s box, it is still not something that you want visible in the house. It can be quite a challenge finding somewhere suitable to put it so that it is both accessible to your cat and at the same time not visible by guests to your home.

You may not have considered buying litter box furniture, which is available in several discreet styles as seen at different options and styles available mean that you can find a piece of furniture that matches your existing decor and furniture. Cat litter box furniture can range from a box that is disguised to look like an indoor plant, to a box that is cleverly hidden within an end table. Regardless of the piece that you buy, the openings are designed to easily hold a regularly sized litter box – an important feature, as cats become accustomed to their own box. Some of these pieces of furniture allow you to add or incorporate other accessories, to minimize the changes to your cat’s routine, as well as minimize mess.

A cat mat may also be included, or you can easily purchase them separately to place in the box. These mats will catch any litter box debris from your cat’s paws and help to keep it on the mat, instead of being tracked into your carpet.

Litter box furniture is a wonderful and practical idea and certainly helps to make this aspect of pet ownership easier to deal with. The furniture is both functional, allowing your pet easy access when necessary; and attractive, designed to resemble a piece of furniture. One other advantage is that using this furniture can also significantly help to reduce the smell that often accompanies the use of the box.
