Furniture Litter Box Enclosures

Welcome feline fanciers! What a wonderful world we kitties live in. We now have furniture enclosures for our litter boxes!

Since we felines are living inside more and becoming part of the family, people are always looking for ways to hide the ever ugly and smelly (if not properly cleaned) litter box.

Of course, furniture is all about what people like… we kitties only want to sit on something comfy and have a place to do our business.

What’s a Furniture Litter Box Enclosure?

furniture for cat litter boxes

Furniture litter box enclosures are basically a box-type end table or enclosed bench with a side or top entrance, a place to put a regular litter box, and a door for access to remove and clean it.

There are numerous options available in a range of prices and quality.

If you’re looking for something stylish so you can put litter boxes in the areas your cat lives, furniture litter box enclosures may be the answer for you.

From traditional to modern, there are now many options available.

Before Buying Furniture Enclosures

Before plunking down lots of money for a high-end enclosure, review the pros and cons of all the options for both you and your cats.

Answer the following questions to be sure these enclosures will work for you and your cats.

  • Do you have any cats who don’t like covered boxes?

If your cat doesn’t like it, he won’t use it… period. You can still use it as an end table or other decorative piece.

  • Is it big enough for your cat(s) to use, turn around, dig and cover comfortably?

If your cat doesn’t like feeling cramped or having his whiskers or fur touch the sides, he won’t use it.

  • Do you have other cats, dogs, or children who disturb or ambush him going in and out of the box?

He won’t use it because he feels trapped with no sight lines or escape routes.

  • Is it easy for you to get the box in and out for cleaning?

You won’t clean it often enough, it’ll stink, and your cat will end up going elsewhere.

Sources

Sources used on this website are either primary or secondary.

Primary sources are always preferable and have the most reliable information because they’re original and directly referenced.

Scientific abstracts and data are good examples of primary sources.

Secondary sources are weaker because they usually consist of opinions or articles that give no sources of their own.

However, sometimes they refer to primary sources.

When I use secondary sources, most are those with some authority, such as veterinarian or cat behaviorist books and articles.
