Hiding the Litter Box In a Closet

Cats are great apartment/condo pets. They require little space, they don't have to be walked, and they're not as prone to "accidents" as dogs. However, finding a location for a litterbox in a small space can be frustrating. This lucky kitty practically has her own bathroom! Through the pet door installed in this door, the cat is able to access her litterbox on the closet floor. This not only keeps the box out of sight, it also leaves a little floor space in the closet where the litter that is tracked out on her paws can fall off before she exits.

The pet door was an easy installation. Picked up from a pet supply store, the pet door kit included a template for marking the location on the door. After drawing the template on the door, I drilled holes in the four corners to allow for my jigsaw blade. Then, it was just a matter of cutting around my drawn line with a jigsaw. Finally, the pet door frame snapped into place, which hid my somewhat sloppy cutting.

Of course, we don't all have empty closet floors for our kitty's boxes and some cats may not be willing to crawl through a pet door to get to theirs. Have you found any clever ways of hiding your cat's litter box?
