Attractive Enclosed Cat Litter Box - The 5 Major Benefits of Such a Pet Furniture Piece

Enclosed cat little boxes are one of my favorite pet accessories.
As a cat owner I understand the problems involved when dealing with indoor cats and the rigmarole of changing the tray.
Worst of all, there are the unsavory smells that come with the use of cat litter, which despite the advertisements, never quite deal with the stench the way you would like.
This is especially true, if like me, you have a cat who can't quite get the hang of covering their little gifts.
What I've found to be a winner on all fronts when it comes to indoor cat toilets is the use of an attractive enclosed cat litter box.
Below are the five major benefits I've discovered through purchasing such a cat litter furniture piece.
Odor - Litter trays are usually left out open to the room environment which means any smells are free to waft throughout the home.
This can be quite abysmal if your cat has diarrhea.
An enclosed cat litter box prevents the stench from traveling further than the confines of the box in which the tray is places.
A cat door style entry means the furniture piece is completely sealed.
As well as this, many products of this nature come with a moisture proof polyurethane finish which prevent odors penetrating the wood.
Plus one can acquire a special air freshener which can be hung inside the enclosed space thereby reducing the smell before you have to change the litter tray.
Attractiveness - Let's face it, a regular cat litter tray sitting in the corner of your room is a rather unsightly visual element to have to suffer.
It can be a burden having to move the tray whenever family, friends and guests come to visit as well as confusing for the poor cat.
The litter as well as the cleaning products used to disinfect the tray can often have a rather unsavory smell of their own which can render your home smelling like a pet shop if moved around too much.
An attractive enclosed cat litter box made from wood can merge with existing decor and become a furniture piece in its own right.
Visitors will see a small chest or cupboard and will be unlikely to realize it is where the cat goes to relieve itself.
One can even place a nice vase of flowers or a sculpture on top of the pine or oak box.
Space Saver - Most enclosed cat boxes come with storage space for the everyday utensils and supplies needed for changing a used litter tray.
This saves on the need to store these materials in a different location and also provides an all-in-one storage solution which saves space and reduces hassle.
Some of my favorites come with in-built shelves and drawers which can be found just above the space where the cat litter box is positioned.
Privacy - Anyone who owns a cat will know they do not like to be watched when they are tending to their private needs.
Many a time I have accidentally and completely unintentionally come across my tabby using her tray only to be met with an angry or sullen look of contempt for daring to invade her privacy.
Just like humans, cats deserve their own little space where they can go to the toilet without being watched and distracted.
If your cat is toilet trained already, then converting them to an enclosed cat litter box is not all that difficult.
If they know how to use a cat door, then it's as easy as pie.
Once they know where the litter is and how to get to it, they will have little problem in climbing through the small side entrances into the secure and comfortable interior of the furniture piece.
Safety and Hygiene - This last point mainly caters for parents of small children who also have cats.
Kids are inquisitive little darlings and despite our best efforts, they can become obsessed with things which we really would like them to avoid.
They also like to run about and play games which can sometimes lead to them toppling over where you least want them to fall.
An enclosed cat litter box furniture piece provides a safe and secure location for the cat's toilet where small children and indeed, dogs, cannot easily get to or even notice.
This will prevent any unsanitary accidents.
