Ask any cat owner with an ounce of decor-savvy what is amongst their top “pet peeves” and litter boxes will likely be high up there (right next to surprise phantom hairballs). Most litter boxes aren’t much too easy on the eyes, and some are just crazy contraptions that forgo any apparent forethought about decor-friendliness (we did roundup our favourite cat litter boxes not that long ago, so all hope is not lost). But how fantastic is this recent addition to our Apartment Therapy LA flickr Pool submitted by DIY-savvy aud-o-matic, that invisibly integrates their pet’s needs with the rest of their interior decor…

“These are two of the three litter box boxes I built to conceal the litter boxes as well as their potential odor (with 3.5 cats, I still scoop regularly). I added a divider to the innards of the box for support and to make it a little more “challenging” to get in and out of the box to minimize tracking. I also lined all three boxes with carpet scraps, again, to minimize tracking.”

“I used a jigsaw to mock I mean cut out this entrance for our pear-shaped cats.”

“Left pic: the wall behind our couch, including a mini-litter box box. Right pic: inside the mini-litter box box.”

Very impressive. Add some sort of air filtration device and you have the perfect kitty litter potty solution beyond training your feline friend to go potty in your potty and flush themselves.
