1. Cabinet With Hidden Cat Litter Box

Image from Instagram:@palram.4u

Is it a cabinet or a litter box? This cabinet with a litter box offers the best of both worlds – a space for your clutter and a private area for the kitty to do its business.

It’s the perfect solution for cramped homes or to make sure the litter box is not simply out in the open for everyone to see (and smell!). Plus, it’s quite easy to recreate this look with just very basic tools.

How Can I Hide My Litter Box Smell? A quick and easy way to hide the litter box smell is by mixing some baking soda into the kitty litter. This eliminates odor while keeping it fresh and clean. You should also scoop out the poop a few times a day instead of leaving it there in the box for too long.

Do Cats Prefer Covered Or Uncovered Litter Boxes? Generally, cats like uncovered litter boxes as they prefer to see any potential threats and quickly flee from them. While covered boxes help to contain odors, cats are just not in favor of this type of design compared to uncovered ones.

Is It OK To Flush Cat Poop Down The Toilet? Flushing cat poop down the toilet may seem like a practical and convenient thing to do but it is definitely not advisable and not okay. Flushing kitty litter down the toilet can cause damage to the pipesseptic system, and plumbing.
