Author : Andre Contado

Now more than ever kitty litter boxes are available in a variety of styles. Cat boxes used to be a simple square shaped box with kitty litter dumped into it but not anymore. These days however you can choose from various shapes and styles as well as standard and self cleaning units too. Whether you, as well as your cat, prefers something simple or you want a high tech model, it's best to shop around and find out what your options are. The following are some factors to keep in mind when choosing a litter box, as well as a look at some popular models.

While there are many fancy and costly cat litter boxes on the market today, at the other end of the spectrum are disposable litter boxes. If you don't want the cost of a self cleaning unit or manual scooping this can be an excellent option for you. Disposable boxes do have a disadvantage in that you have to keep buying more of them.

Kitty's WonderBox are a type of disposable litter box that are made from recycled paper, and are designed to minimize odors such as the ammonia smell that you often get. This is an excellent idea for those of us who don't like to clean out litter boxes.

One option that is inexpensive and down to earth is to just simply use a cardboard box with some litter. Storage containers can make good litter boxes, as they tend to be large and made of sturdy cardboard. One simple cut out in the front of the box makes a perfect door for your cat. If this option isn't fancy enough for you keep looking cause there are other options that offer odor control and self cleaning. If all you plan on getting is a simple pan type litter box don't waste your money just use a box.

Even though your cat doesn't give a second thought to what the litter box looks like chances are that you do care what it's going to look like. It is for this reason that there are so many designer styles in litter boxes available these days. Many of these look more like upscale furniture or doll houses for kids more than a litter box and many have easy clean features that prevent tracking of litter through your home. It's important to ensure that the designer box you choose is actually designed with the cat in mind rather than just something nice to look at. One alternative is the LitterHouse which is a functional and attractive litter box made for your cat.

As you can see from the above information there are a lot of litter box options available to you no matter where you shop you'll find the right option for your cat. You have to consider how many cats you have, their size, and what kind of litter box will work best for you. Can you decide what features you need and which you can live without when considering a self cleaning unit?, Cost is something you'll need to think about if it's worth the money or not. There are of course some good models that are mid grade priced you can find.
