Which Litter Box Is Right For My Kitten?

Posted

So your little Suzy is coming home this weekend. You’ve enthusiastically made all the preparations... well all except for one. Choosing your new kitten’s litter box can often be a daunting task. Open box or covered box? Learn about the pros and cons of different types of litter boxes for your kitten.

Certainly, innovations in cat litter boxes have resulted in some great options.  Small or large, covered or open, round or rectangular these are just some of the choices you must make.  The easiest way to narrow the search is to first decide where the litter box will be located in your home.  This will help define the size and maybe even the shape and color.

Some advantages & disadvantages are listed below:

Covered Box

Advantages

  • Perfect for a small space 
  • Minimizes the mess 
  • Minimizes the smell 
  • Perfect 1st box for a kitten 
  • Gives your feline companion privacy

Disadvantages

  • An older cat who is used to an open box may be apprehensive to change 

Open Box

Advantages

  • May be more comfortable for very large cats 
  • A good option as a take-a-long.
    Maybe a road trip is in your future?

Disadvantages 

  • Usually messy
  • No walls to contain the smell
Generally, you'll find that cats tend to be clean companions. When the new litter box comes home and gets filled with their favorite litter, no further introduction will be required.
