Selection Process Specifics

Litterboxes of various designs available in stores have their specifics, drawbacks and advantages. Practically any marketed options may suit a kitten. All depends on the pet temper, its behavior pattern, preferences.

Litterbox Types:

  1. Regular plastic litterboxes for litter
  2. Litterboxes with grid without litter
  3. Disposable litterboxes
  4. Designs with high sides
  5. Ventilated models
  6. Litterboxes with automatic cleaning system
  7. Closed-type litterboxes
  8. Litterboxes without litter


It is not necessary to acquire right away an expensive closed-type model with filtering system and other state-of-the-art elements. Absence of specific odour, unnatural sounds in the process of chemical reactions may frighten away the kitten. The kitten may perceive a closed-type litterbox in the form of the house as a spot for rest, but not for defecation.

Initially, it would be better to buy inexpensive plastic small-size litterbox. Choose among models with removable sides. Further, sides can be replaced with higher ones to exclude scattering litter outside the litterbox. With the help of removable sides you may fasten the film which is put at the bottom under litter. In such case, you will not have to wash the tray upon litter replacement. For active kittens preferring to dig into litter, buy a litterbox with curved-in sides. You can buy disposable models of similar shape and colour so that the kitten will not have to get used to specifics of a new design.
