How to Make a Litter Box



Make your own litter box. Great for cats who need a larger litter box or for cats with arthritis. Click here for a print friendly version.


1)  Purchase a large tote (at least 20 Gallons) with a lid.
     Clear walls are best for cats to see other cats that may want to ambush the user.




2) Cut a hole in one end. Make sure you don't leave any sharp edges.
    The bottom of the hole should be not higher than 4 inches. The opening should be at least 10 inches high.





3) Fill with no more than 2 inches of litter and put lid on container.
    Be sure to scoop daily!
