Can the litter box area really be a nice place? I mean it's a practical place -- cats visit to do their "business," and then they leave, hopefully without tracking too much litter along the way. When Tidy Cats® asked if Cosmo would like a Littervention in his bathroom space, I thought, "Why not?" We humans like our bathrooms to look pleasant and offer functionality, so why not give the same opportunity to our kitties? We accepted the Littervention! Spring cleaning is the perfect time for such a thing, after all.
I live in a small loft, and Cosmo's litter box is located in my bedroom. It's a plain little corner of my room ... nothing fancy. I suppose it should be fancier -- he is a tuxedo cat.
Tidy Cats® needed some information so they could send me products that would fit with my decor, space, and needs. I'm glad they asked about my biggest peeve, which is the whole litter-tracking situation. The little mat Cosmo was using wasn't doing its job. Sometimes when I stepped out of my bed, it felt like I'd set foot on a beach. If only, right?
When the box arrived from Tidy Cats®, I was blown away! So many cool objects tucked inside, including toys, scratchers, and all sorts of fun and interesting goodies. I couldn't wait to go to town transforming the area!
They sent us a jug of Tidy Cats® LightWeight 4-in-1 Strength Litter and a new litter box with a pretty wicker basket in which to place it. And let me tell you about the mat! It's covered with deep holes that catch that litter. I know it catches it because I see it sitting inside those soft little craters and not so much on my bedroom floor.
And the Litter Genie. Can I just talk about the Litter Genie for a moment? If you've never used one, you're missing out. No longer do I need to make the daily walk down the hall with my bag o' clumps. Sure, I'll miss the regular chats with the neighbors while holding said bag o' clumps, but the tradeoff is well worth it, my friends.
I personalized Cosmo's corner by hanging an extraordinarily handsome photo of him above his box ... because why not?
The Litter Genie arrived with a handy scoop that's stored on the side of the in-"Genie-us" (pushing it?) contraption. And they sent adorable rubber gloves with cleaning supplies! The cute gloves make me want to clean (probably).
Speaking of cleaning, did you know that some toys can go in the top rack of your dishwasher? Many dishwashers even have handy little baskets to hold small objects. And once they're clean, store them in little baskets or boxes. Soon they'll be scattered again, but they will at least have a home!
Of course Cosmo didn't do a thing to help me with his own Littervention. As usual, he sat on the sidelines and supervised. That's his specialty, you know.
Here's how it looks integrated into my bedroom. Pretty cool, huh? The makeover gives his litter box corner a more fun and attractive look -- plus, the Litter Genie! Cosmo and I are both pleased with the outcome.
