I never thought I’d have a cat and certainly not a litter box. I decided to turn my newly built cabinet into something a little more practical by creating a spot to hide the litter box for my rescue kitty. Because I loved my cabinet so much, I didn’t want the opening to be visible. Check out how I achieved this! Its so easy and would work for most furniture.
DIY Hidden Litter Box
First I used my jigsaw to cut an opening for my cat. Cutting a hole in my new console was the hardest part!
Next, I simply added little hinges and a lock to the piece I cut out and installed it over the opening. I picked these up at my
local hardware store and they were very inexpensive.
The lock is more for me than it is for cat privacy 😉
Then I added my litter box. We use the Kitty Poo Club which I love! They send a new box every couple weeks which makes litter changing effortless. They also use a silica type litter that doesn't smell so I felt confident my cabinet would be unharmed.
Finally, I had to teach my cat to use it! All it took was some coaxing with wiggly fingers to lead him to the hatch and up into the cabinet.
I was so proud! And now my litter box is tucked away unseen!
