PetSafe Solvit Mr. Herzher's Cat Litter Pan Cover
This cat litter box enclosure has the perfect look to blend in well with your other furniture and house décor. Despite the look, it is not actually rattan or any sort of wood, it’s made of a smooth plastic, meaning it’s odour-free and clean longer than actual rattan would be. Your cat won’t do it any significant harm with its’ claws and you can use the top for decorations or as a basking spot. It is easier to assemble than other cat litter box furniture and still solid. It does not require any screws and bolts to assemble, so you can fold it up for spring-cleaning. The front flap opens down, so it may not be as practical as other cat litter box enclosures. Your cat will be able to look out for danger in this litter box cover as well, so shy cats will feel safer than in other litter box enclosures.
- Sturdy but easy to clean
- The front flap opens down, not up
- Simple assembly
New Cat Condos Premier Litter Box Enclosure
If you prefer something sturdier, this piece of litter box furniture will be right up your alley. It comes fully assembled, so you can begin using it the moment it arrives. The cat litter enclosure has three main layers: the outer layer is made of a soft carpet, then solid wood, and the inside is lined so it can be washed. The carpet layer makes this litter box enclosure double up as scratching post, so it is a great two-in-one deal. The wooden construction makes it fine to use as a chair for anyone in your family. This piece of litter box furniture opens up at the top, not on the side, which makes cleaning it out easier. Because it is made of wood, it is much heavier than its plastic counterparts are, so we would not recommend it if you do not have anyone to help you carry it indoors.
- Scratching post
- Durable chair
Petsfit Double-Decker Litter Box Enclosure
The Petsfit Double-Decker litter box enclosure is a large piece of cat litter furniture you cannot miss. If you have a dog that likes to get into the litter box, look no further, this is the perfect solution! Since the litter is only accessible using the top shelf inside the litter box enclosure, there will be no litter on the floor and most importantly no smell. The front opens up for cleaning, but there is a latch holding the door to keep your pets from opening it on accident. You might want to put a rubber mat under the litter box though as this one is not as easy to clean and odour-proof. You can use the top shelf in this litter box for your cat’s food dish as well. Due to its height, it makes a great end table.
- Masks the smell perfectly
- Functions as an end table
- Keeps other pets out
Pidian Igloo Cat Litter Enclosure
This piece of litter box furniture is trendy and futuristic. It would be our recommendation for those of you with big cats or older cats who cannot jump or climb so well. They can easily stroll in and out of this cute igloo. The grated doorway will take care of any loose cat litter, so none will ever get on your carpet again, and the plastic makes it lightweight and easy to wash. This litter box enclosure is also bigger than most others on our list are, so even Maine Coon owners will be able to use this one. Just as the previous one, this piece of furniture is designed to be dog proof. The material of the igloo makes it very good at masking odours, but an obvious downside is the trendy shape itself. Unlike many other litter box covers, you will not be able to use it for anything else due to the curved shape.
- Modern design
- Masks odours
New Age Pet Cat Litter Box Cover End Table
If you have a cat that “misses” or likes to dig in the litter, this simple litter box cover is perfect for your home. It has an attractive design that imitates wood, but the material is recycled plastic and reclaimed wood, which is much easier to clean and does not soak up unwanted odours like wood tends to do. The front flips down, so the space is easy to access. Strong magnets hold the door closed, so your cat will not pop the door open on accident. There are vents on the top side so there is better air circulation than in many products on our list. The design is simple and non-invasive, so it will fit into your home without drawing attention. Compared to the other litter box enclosures on this list, this one is not only more eco-friendly, but also has a great price to quality ratio.
- Easy to wash
- Magnetic door
- Simple and practical
Refined Feline Litter Box Enclosure
This beautiful wooden cabinet is a great way to hide your cat’s litter box in style. It may be made of gorgeous wood, but do not worry, the inside is covered in plastic litter liner so your investment will not be made void by your furry friend using it. The walls are reversible so you can construct it with left or right side entry and the litter box enclosure has a drawer above the main body your cat will use. The door that your cat will use is big enough for a dog to fit his head in, so this litter box enclosure is made for kitty-exclusive families (unless you want to tweak it). There are ventilation holes in the back, but the furniture still works well at keeping odour at bay. You can purchase a litter catch tray to place at the door if your cat is particularly good at spreading litter.
- Elegant style
- For a cat-only household
Petsfit Night Stand Litter Box Furniture
This nightstand has a very simplistic and no-fuss design. can be used either for a litter box or as a pet house, so it is useful even if your cat decides that the litter box is a standalone. It has the useful ventilation areas at the top that most litter box enclosure manufacturers forget, ensuring your cat doesn’t suffer in a dusty box and has enough light to feel safe and peek outside. It is made of pressed wood, which is sturdy and eco-friendly, but it can soak up the smell of scattered litter. If your cat tends to spray high, this is definitely not the litter box enclosure for you. The latch is great for smaller cats, but if you have a big cat, you may have problems with the latch popping open as your cat enters or exits the litter box enclosure.
- Simple design
Merry Pet Washroom-Nightstand Pet House
The washroom-nightstand cat litter enclosure does two things: it hides your cat’s litter box and doubles up as a piece of functional furniture you can use. The price tag is lower than wooden cat litter furniture because this product is made of fibreboard. The material is great for those of you who deem plastic furniture as unsightly and environmentally irresponsible, it does however have some drawbacks in comparison to plastic litter box furniture. First, you cannot wash it quite as simply as it will bubble and the material will lose durability. Second, if your cat aims high, you will need to reinforce the inside with rubber or plastic foil, otherwise the nightstand will retain an unpleasant smell. We would highly recommend this litter box enclosure if your cat is not very messy or fussy, because this piece of furniture does not have any ventilation or peek holes for curious felines other than the front door.
- Low price
- Does not cover smell
Merry Pet Washroom Bench Litter Box Enclosure
This bench is wider than other pieces of furniture on this list, which gives you additional space inside if you want to go full odour-free and put an automatic covered litterbox inside. It comes with a dividing partition that you can use to create a small storage space. The cat door can go on either side as it is reversible, and the front doors are magnetic. Having the entire front open to access the litter box, it is practical compared to other litter box enclosures that open from the top or the cat door side, so cleaning up is easier. Another great idea on how to use the extra space is to place a litter tracking tray or mat between the door and the litter box, that way the mess stays inside safely. The bench is made of wood, so it is sturdy and heavy with a mess-proof coat of paint.
- Large space inside
- Easy to access inside
- Sealed wood
Designer Catbox Nora Cat Litter Box Chest
This lovely piece of litter box furniture is practical due to the staggered entrance we have seen here before. Your cat will not be able to spread the litter as far as with simpler litter box enclosure designs and you can change the cat doors to the left or right side, giving your cat privacy. The inner panel is optional, so if you need a bigger litter pan, you can simply leave that out and use a litter mat at the entrance. The chest opens at the top for cleaning, so it is easier to make sure you didn’t miss a spot. This chest is made of wood, so if your furry friend likes to “clean up” a lot, make sure to get a litter box with high sides to prevent any staining or pervasive odour. Your pets and children can sit on the chest, but remember that it is not made for the weight of an adult.
- Optional interior panel
- Easy to clean
- Prevents odour
There is a plethora of crafty ways to hide your cat’s litter box, but litter box enclosures are definitely one of the most elegant and multi-functional solutions. All ten listed above are non-toxic and safe for your cat to use. If your cat hasn’t used a litter box enclosure before, make sure you make the transition gradually and give your cat as much space and time to sniff and explore as needed. Not every cat will be open to the idea of doing its business in an enclosed space, so leaving the door fully open for a few days will make your kitty less grumpy about the shift. How do you deal with your cat’s litter box?
