Kitty Litter Placement

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi everyone. I'm new to this forum, and hopefully I can get some help. I live in a 1 bedroom apartment. Fairly large for a 1 bedroom. Almost 1000 sq/f. The only problem I have is I need to find a good place for my litter box for my new cat. I have a small laundry room, but the litter box would be right up against the washer and dryer. My kitchen is wide open, and not enough room for a litter box. The rest of my apartment is carpeted. Would it be a problem if I put the litter box in the small laundry room? And has anyone have experiance with those litter box furnitures? They look like cabinets where you can put a litter box in. They look kind of neat, but I just wonder how a cat would respond to it.

Any help would be great.

I was going to suggest one of those cabinets, lol. I haven't used one, we haven't had the money to buy one, but I plan on it. I think it would work fine, just let the kitty know where to go, maybe leave the doors on it open for a bit so she can see (if it has doors). The kitty might be scared to go in the laundry room if the washer or dryer is on (the noise). Maybe a bathroom or something?

You can always test whether your cat will use the litter box furniture first before investing in it. Clear out a cabinet underneath your sink and put your litter pan in there. Prop the door open and see if he ventures in to do his business. If he does, he is a good candidate for the litter box concealment furniture.

here is a website that gives you many different web addresses for this type of furniture

The cabinet would be really nice if your cat will use it! I've been wondering myself if my cat's would use one!

You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the quick replies. I only do my laundry like once a week. So I think I the laundry will be ok, until I can order a Litter Cabinet.

I would put the litter box in the bathroom, but my bathroom is a little small. I could put the litter box underneath the bathroom sink and see if he will do his business there.

Thanks again. If anyone has additional input, I would definitely welcome it.
