Litter box from storage box container tub
Saturday, January 22, 2011
I was needing a litter box with higher sides than I owned. I already had the Jumbo sided litter box, but was still having a problem with spillage above the top of the box. (Is that a nice way to put it? lol.) None of the litter boxes I saw in stores were tall enough, or had two pieces that fit together as a covered litter box. As my friends had told me, they can still get fluid through the tiny cracks where the top and bottom fit together. So I decided to try using the storage box container tubs that you can get for less than $5.00 at a large retail store. I had to be sure it didn't have large grooves or details sticking up in the inside of the container as some of them do.
Using a hot knife to help cut through the plastic and a heavy utility knife. *Be very careful; very easy to cut yourself, I cut the shape out of the front. I traced with a pencil where I wanted to cut before cutting, that way I could get it halfway straight. (Used a folded piece of paper as a template.)
The cats adjusted to it well. I leave the top off. Mine aren't used to a covered box.
