Litter Box Furniture, Hiders and Disguises
Litter box enclosures, disguises, or hiders can be desired when a litter box is needed in a room where one does not want a litter box on view. Litter box concealers also keep litter scatter contained, serving as a covered litter box. A furniture type litter box enclosure can give more room for the cats than many covered litter boxes, but note the size carefully, since some litter box furniture items are too small for large breed cats to fit in. Also, measure the size litter box you want to use in a litter box cabinet and then compare it with the measurements of the cabinet to make sure it will fit. Many of the litter box hiders will not fit a jumbo sized litter box. Jumbo sized litter trays are approximately 22'' or 23" x 16'' or 17".
Litter pan hiders range from simple to more elaborate decorative furniture items. Furniture type hiders are good because they can have additional uses- either storage, a table top, or a surface on which cats can nap or climb. Multi-purpose litter box furniture give even more functions for one furniture item.
While one may wish to hide a litter box, do take care to not have it in a dark, small, closed up structure, with a small entry. There needs to be enough light and air flow for the cats, or they won't want to go in. Also, take care to check for eliminations a few times a day, to then scoop them out. With a litter box hidden, it can be easy to forget about scooping it out when needed. In an enclosed container, it is more important to keep the box scooped out often, since the odor will be concentrated inside the enclosed space. That will repel most cats, understandably.
Basic Litter Box Hiders
This is a good litter box hider because it has a nice, large doorway, which will allow in more light and help with airflow. Even large cats will be able to enter and exit comfortable. There are also slits in the back wall, which help with airflow. It fits standard to large sized litter pans, but will not fit the jumbo sized pans needed for very large cats. It Includes a hook inside the hider for hanging a litter scoop. The top cover comes off to allow for easy cleaning. It can also be used as cozy cat hideway, if you put a pillow inside instead of a litter box.
This litter box enclosure is made with a washable, high pressure laminate finish, with chrome plated steel legs. Available in walnut finish only.
