Great litter box mess tip alert, people!
Everywhere I go, when I meet a cat behavior expert, I always ask them about litter box issues.
I met Wendy Christensen, author of Outwitting Cats (as if that’s possible), at the Cat Writers Association Conference in November and she gave me all kinds of great ideas, including a way to contain scattered litter around the boxes.
This is a huge issue in our house because Mr. Pugsley is a messy, messy boy. And really, there is nothing grosser than walking on a floor covered in litter. Plus it tracks everywhere and, well, ew.
Wendy told me that the extra large litter boxes don’t always cut it. She said if your
cats are uber messy, a great solution is one of those under the bed storage containers that you buy somewhere like Target or Amazon.
So I tried it and OMG, it’s awesome and has cut down on the litter mess substantially in our basement.
I used the 41 quart which worked great. They do come bigger if you have big cats or a lot of cats.
Love it. One less litter headache. Thanks, Wendy!
