I Hate Cleaning Kitty Litter Boxes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 107 People

    It's Not That Bad If You Clean It Regularly...

    But my little sisters are some of the laziest cat people I've ever met.  Because they're the ones living at home, it's their responsibility to clean the litter- do they do it?  no.  (or at least not nearly as much as they should).  Which means that every...

    Love My Cats But They Can Poop.

    I have three cats, all of which I love dearly. I wouldn't give any one of them up for the world. Their cat boxes, on the other hand, I could live happily without. It seems nothing I do helps. I don't understand how SO MUCH POOP can come out of SUCH LITTLE KITTY BUTTS.

    Electric Box

    We have an electric litter box and 2 kitties. They are indoor outdoor cats, but even when they stay in all the time I never have to change it more than 2x a week. I just keep a box of baking soda near it, and sprinkle a little in the plastic pooholder, and there is no smell. I...

    Scooping Made Easier!

     I read all the comments above, and agree. There is, WAS, a need for a litter box system to solve all the litter problems discussed. AND, well after much research and design time, I too ended up making one for myself. The Kitty Wash room and many other products like it...

    Liners

    I use non scoopable litter and cat pan liners.  I only have to change it once a week and I have 2 cats.  The litterbox is right in the living room so I'd know if it smelled and it doesn't.  In fact it's much better smelling than the scoopable stuff...

    Cat Litter Box

    I love cats and hate cleaning the litter box.  I hate when it gets to the point that it smells real strong (when the urine touches all the litter).

    Terrible

    Absolutely no matter what I do, even if I clean it three times a day, it smells terrible. Deodorizers only work when you're not cleaning the darn box. I swear. I love kitties, but if I ever have a pet cat again my partner is cleaning the litter. - K
