Is it a basic litter box, with or without a lid?

A plant-hidden box or maybe a luxury cat litter box in furniture style?

How about an upgrade to a self-cleaning cat litter box?

Let’s have a quick look at these 4 styles.

1. Basic cat litter boxes

A regular open tray might just do fine for your cat. No hassle, you don’t have to remove a lid when cleaning. So this means very easy access when cleaning daily.

A litter box with tall sides keeps the litter inside. It is still open, but the walls keep any litter or spraying inside the tray. As many cats like to play in the litter and can make a huge mess.

A covered litter box adds a bit of privacy for your cat and yourself! You’ll find them with replaceable filters on the top that keeps the smell out of the room. A great solution when you need it in your kitchen or bathroom.

Look for a model with a top entry if your cat doesn’t like going through a door.

2. Plant hidden cat litter box

This category of cat litter boxes is designed to be decorative.

Used a lot by cat owners who live tiny. Just put the catbox discreetly in every room you like. Your visitors never suspect this to be a cat litter box.

Turning the litterbox facing or corner or wall leaves a cat walking in and out freely.

3. Cat litter box furniture
