Finding the Best Litter Box for Your Cat and Your Home

November 15, 2017

Because finding the best litter box for your cat is important.

When it comes to hygiene, we all know how fussy cats can be. Cats like to be clean and they like everything they use to be clean.

Despite their habit of going out on the prowl and bringing home corpses as gifts for their owners, our furry friends don’t like to be made to use anything dirty, particularly when it comes to their litter box. This is why you need to ensure you choose the right litter box for your cat as well as for your home.

The good news is that there are plenty of litter box options available these days, so you should be able to find the perfect one for your needs. You should look for a box that your cat will be comfortable using, that will be suitable for your home, and that is easy to clean and maintain. This will ensure that both you are your cat are happy.

Some great litter box options

If you are deciding which litter box you should invest in for your cat, there are some excellent options available. Some of the top ones to choose from include:

Petmate Clean Step Litter Dome

This is a great little litter box that will look like a little igloo in your home. The dome-shaped box is enclosed so that your cat can enjoy its privacy while doing its business. The large size of the box means that it is ideal for cats of all sizes, as they can get inside and use it comfortably.

The litter box comes with a carbon filter, which can help to eliminate those nasty odors and it is extremely easy to clean, which is great news for you. Better still, when the cat steps out of the dome, the integrated ramp will catch any litter and debris on the paws so that it doesn’t end up all over your carpet and furniture.
