I have been told by my vet that essential oils are toxic to cats. I would say to do some research before using them.
This is from Google:
”Essential oils can pose a toxic risk to household pets, especially to cats. ... Cats lack an essential enzyme in their liver and as such have difficulty metabolizing and eliminating certain toxins like essential oils. Cats are also very sensitive to phenols and phenolic compounds, which can be found in some essential oils.”
Also, many cats will not use a covered box because they are very sensitive to smells. An enclosed box can smell like a very ripe outhouse and so your cat may begin to go outside of the box
“The human nose has about 5 million olfactory receptors, microscopic proteins that allow us to detect odors. With 45 million to 80 million receptors, cats have a far better sense of smell—but they can't measure up to the average dog, whose snout holds between 149 million and 300 million receptors.” Google
