Thread: Kitty litter box

  1. Print this Post   #1

    Kitty litter box

    We will be travelling with our new kitten, Nellee and I'm wondering where the best place would be for her litterbox. I thought the bedroom closet but remembered with the slides in she couldn't access it? I'd appreciate any suggestions from kitty owners.

    Thanks

    Diane,

    It would really depend on your Bighorn's layout. We have a 3055RL and fussy cats that like a covered litterbox. We use the area at the desk where the chair belongs. It really depends on the space available in your model.

    Hi Deb
    We will have the 3670 which also has the desk and chair room. That might work.
    Does the cover type eliminate some of the mess, smell?
    I'm pretty fussy myself and change the litter every couple of days. (its a yecky job but someone has to do it!)

    Thanks

    Diane, our cats box sit behind the recliners when we are parked. We have two boxes and the other sits near the desk. One thing that we have done, a long time ago, was to go to a product called Feline Pine. It is actually saw dust made into pellets. It has very little dust, does not smell like the clay products, nor does it have the "scented" smell. We scoop daily, and almost never change it. No odors. Very little tracking. Just a food for thought. Our cat does not travel in the Bighorn. He sits on the console between us.

    Peace

    Thanks Dave, I'm going to look for that Feline Pine. Probably not available in Canada though. Yes our Phoebee stayed in the truck with us, her bed on the centre console. Nellee will do the same but will no doubt be more active since she'll only be 6 months when we leave!

    Hi Diane,
    Izzy does not like traveling in the truck uless it is real cold. We use a covered box and set it if front of the shower ( just move it when showering). We have not had a problem with odor but after 14 years we might just use to it , guess well have to ask.

    We had a Lazyboy recliner and once I killed a kitten by leaning back and he was trapped in the rockers.
    Its a nice area though I keep my guitars back there because the recliners need to be so far from the wall.

    We also have the 3670 and bring our two cats up to the site during the summer. At first, I put the box (smaller covered type with roof cut open) in the bathroom. Didn't take long to figure out that didn't work. The space between the short kitchen counter and the steps fit it perfectly, though. Our central vac port was mounted on the bottom step riser, not the wall, so it was not a factor. We use the Tidy Cat scoopable litter (put in in a coffee can lined with a plastic shopping bag) and toss it with the trash when full. I check the box and scoop it frequently, so there is no odor and the litter has deodorizing agents in it. Their bowls fit nicely under the overhang on the main counter.

    The kitchen photo is before it dawned on me to move the box. It goes where the trash can is and the trash can gets placed in front of the cabinet door. Max, the big black Maine (mostly I think) Coon sits on it.

    Providing we only bring one cat, my plan is to find a box that will fit under the bathroom sink. I ordered an extra cabinet door that I will cut out an entry door for the cat.

    This way it will be semi hidden.

    Hey Dave that's the way to travel!

    Ours ride in their bed on the console too. We sometimes have a little complaining from them but it only lasts a few minutes and they settle right down. They traveled from the time they were young so I think that makes the difference. They have ridden for 8 to 10 hours without any trouble. Litter box on the floor in the backseat, water in the travel bowl and occasional tuna snacks. Life's Good!
