Hello curious cats! Skye Blake here with some info for those who have litter boxes in living areas, want them hidden, but don’t want furniture enclosures. Think privacy screen!
The information here is for general knowledge… always see your vet with questions about your cat’s individual needs.
Who Is Skye Blake?
Skye Blake, Cat Info Detective, is a curious cat researcher (not a veterinarian) who sniffs out expert, reliable sources about cats, studies their information, then passes it on to you!
Sometimes there’s not enough evidence for easy answers, so Skye gives you all sides, explains the situation as thoroughly and clearly as possible, and links you to experts on each page.
Sources are given at the bottom of each page so you can do more snooping.
The Privacy Screen for Litter Boxes
Privacy screens are a good alternative if your cat won’t use a covered box or furniture enclosure.
They’re also nice if a litter box is in a place where you don’t want it to be an eyesore.
Litter box privacy screens are short, usually 3-4 feet tall, although you can certainly get regular room divider screens.
If you’re creative, you can make something fun and unique, but there are a few available at Amazon and possibly other suppliers.
Sources of Privacy Screens

Check descriptions and reviews carefully for any products you wish to buy… quality, sizes, colors, etc., can’t be guaranteed by anyone but the manufacturer.
Here are some privacy screens that might work for you…

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.
